This little restaurant is a gem. Servers are warm, friendly, and pro. The atmosphere is candle lit and the food is very, very good. We were a table of 6, so we got to try several dishes.
The owner is Angelo, for 13 yrs at his former Angelo D's on Bloor West. Anyhow where to begin....grilled calamari, house salad with burrata cheese to die for. Lobster cake where you actually taste real lobster, and phyllo wrapped Brie. For seconds we split 2 risottos, both of which were fantastic, but I'm a sucker for the duck. We shared an order of creamy Stilton sauce in which swam beautiful house made gnocchi stuffed with ricotta. We asked that the third course be delayed in order to give it justice. And what justice!!!! The Supreme Court could not have been served such a sublime feast!
Veal Morelli with roast peppers and port wine sauce, roasted lamb served so magnificently the animal would be proud to have given its life up for such treatment, and the trout.....the trout here would commit suicide to be cooked so perfectly by Angelo. My brother in law had a ribeye steak, perfect....and we also tried a wonderful venison, and the rare treat of rabbit in a beautiful white wine sauce. At Prego the Easter Bunny himself would offer himself up to be in such a dish. We were too full to order dessert, but then from the house came molten chocolate lava cake. That sealed the deal, along with 6 fresh baked almond paste filled cookies.
Will we be back?????? Does it snow in Canada??????
We'll be back!
Nice restaurant,good presentation.I liked food very much.Probably the best restaurant in Etobicoke.
PREGO is no doubt the best fine dining restaurant in Etobicoke
I have dined there a few times .
The food is beyond amazing and the service is very professional.
MUST TRY: RIBEYE STEAK AND RACK OF LAMB !
Iam very surprised that previous writer called rapini slimy vegetables.We now dine at least twice a week at Prego's and i think presentation is amazing,food deffinetly the best Etobicoke can offer,never mind VI BO,Pinochio,the food has flavour,class,and the coniglio-roasted rabbit a big hit on Wednesday nights,WELL DONE. NICHOLAS AND PATRICIA.
My self and two other friends dined at Prego's on the Qweensway on Tuesday night we started with bruschetta it was to die for Julie ordered spinach salad with candied wall nuts,stilton cheese and poached pear,i had lobser cake and Guido had octopus carpaccio evrything so far was amazing,i mean amazing even the home made bread was served in this cone with roasted pepper spread mouth watering.The waiter was verry pleasant and sugested fresh fish of the day grilled Orata-sea brim.We ended up ordering two Orata's and vitello zingara. The fish was extrimly fresh the best i ever had in my entire life,veal was just as good,we had two bottles of chianti classico olinto by i Fabri was realy good it was the first time we have tried this wine highly recomended.The desserts crepes with srawberries smothered with chocolate ganache and also we tried lemon torte,definetly we were verry pleased with evrything and will go back the best fish we ever had.
Very disappointing experience. Angelo D is the chef and restaurant he had on Bloor years ago had excellent food. We went to Prego with much anticipation. Decor attractive, presentation of bread excellent. It just did not seems like a happy place - very minimal pleasantness by staff. Food overall subpar. My lemon picatta and boiled potatoes very good. However, presentation not. covered with some kind of green slimy long strands of vegetable and a hunk of pepper. Husband's veal marinara had excellent scallops but pieces of veal not tasty and covered in the same green slimy veg. No refill of water glasses and had to ask for a knife when my one knife was taken away with my finished insalda. This restaurant needs to pick up on the details and presentation or it will fail.
