Prego Chope

    Italian Restaurant Prego's Fried Calamari
  • Prego
    Prego is a good choice for a nice meal that won’t bust your pocket

An Italian staple still holding its own against an army of new young guns is Prego. When we went for lunch last week the place was cheek-to-jowl with corporate types tucking into no-nonsense hearty Italian fare. The décor hasn’t changed one bit, and it’s still a bright and breezy place to enjoy a long lunch, even if a bit noisy.

We enjoyed the two-course business lunch consisting of oven-baked seafood pancake filled with pieces of fish, shrimp and mussels in a tasty squidink cream sauce served with parsley pesto. We followed this with a wonderfully robust and tender stewed lamb leg with olives, mixed vegetables and potatoes.

From the a la carte menu the trusty old calamari with tartare dressing proved that it’s still a safe bet. The daily risotto with grilled garoupa and sun-dried tomato sauce was the perfect consistency and extremely delicious—we lapped it up. (Nonetheless, we really do question chef’s insistence that it was aborio rice; it’s a small gripe but something we’re particular about.)

The other Italian litmus test, tiramisu, was big, moist, well-liquored and very satisfying—one of the best we’ve tasted around town. Throughout our visit we were served by well-trained staff who know the meaning of good knowledgeable service. Prego is still a good, no surprises standard.
