Pros: eh...not much

Cons: slow and rude.

We have been dining at Prego for over 20 years. The food here is priced quite nicely for the quality and quantity you receive. Everything on the menu is Fabulous! I doubt anyone would leave there unhappy about their meal. And if they did I would assume they are just NEVER happy people. The Chef, Servers, Hotess, etc. were very accomodating. Our overall experience two nights ago was beyond Amazing. We will be going back for the next 20 plus years thats for sure. Try it out you will LOVE IT!

Pros: New Owner/Chef eager to please

Cons: Didn't find any Drawbacks

Food is great, the staff is attentive, and this restaurant is beautifully decorated. I can't wait until I visit Prego again! I ordered the steak salad and my boyfriend ordered a shrimp and pasta dish - both were delicious.

i went here with a big group before a high school dance, and it was really good. We got to try 4 different kinds of pasta and the staff was really friendly and took care of us.

On a Sunday evening, less than half the restaurant was filled but our seating was squeezed into a corner. Knowing the lack of customers, our waitress neglected us. The service was terrible, she ignored a specific request to leave out onion and garlic-arguing with us that it was left out when you could see it on the plate, the food was overpriced, we were charged for food we never received, and will NEVER go again. Although we were overcharged and didn't see it until later, too much trouble to deal with for a restaurant we will never go to and tell everyone we know never to go to.

The atmosphere is great! Very energetic Happy Hour.

I've had their salmon and it is the best all around. Their prices are like that of any other high-quality ristorante. If you have large groups, it tends to be a little noisy.

They are located on the corner of Von Karmen and Michelson. Get there early to beat the crowd and ladies, get a good seat to watch all the business come in!

Went to Prego's for a birthday. The food was $20-30 a plate. Not only did they wait till we were almost done eating to check up on us, but I had to wait to flag them down to give me a steak knife so that I could eat my food. The waiter filled everyone's glass but mine, ignored my request for a box, and gave my party the bill without asking us if we wanted dessert (they have a dessert cart!) The food was ok, but not anything special. Not really worth it. I did not tip because they didn't earn it. I will never go back here again!

My spouse and I went to Prego one evening after several of his co workers recommended it. Excited to enjoy the experience, we walked in and the host was very personable. That's where the positive experience stopped. Our server stood around looking dumbfounded most of the evening. He looked at my husband's empty glass several times but never refilled it. The server assistant was much more enjoyable.The food was so so. My lasagna was not very 'authentic.' The sauce tasted like the sauce in a can of Chef boy arde can. It was very thin and not tasteful. Being in the restaurant industry, I expected more from an upscale establishment. Not impressed and will not return.

We went to Prego for dinner and were very impressed. The food was delicious, far better than expected, and our waitress was wonderful. She made dessert reccommendations and was great with the kids. We will definitely go again.

Pros: service, cuisine, family friendly

Although Prego is located in Irvine's business district at the bottom of the all-glass Irvine Towers, it is definitely worth a visit. And now more than ever since effervescent chef Ugo Allesina took over the kitchens. In contrast to the…
