“Prego” is Italian for You’re Welcome! A friendly name that matches this award winning restaurant in Westin Hotel that has constantly churn up some delicious authentic Italian wonders, their specialty being pastas and pizzas.

Homey & Cosy would be words to describe the settings of the restaurant. A vibrant restaurant overlooking the busy movement of Jalan Bukit Bintang, Prego is suitable either for both private and family dinners. It is also a place with strong influx of foreigners, probably due to the help of trip advisor. And one thing I admire on the management side is their effort to listen to diner’s opinion and making response for all comments being made.

I’ve always felt satisfied on my visits to PREGO, their menu seem endless, until now I’ve barely went through half the menu. Sure there were definitely some hits and misses on the menu, misses were often explained and sometimes rectified and the hits have been truly a wonder. Most importantly, service was always attentive, and food has always been affordable for its locality and portioning, and it helps that they have a good range of affordable wine.

Complimentary bread

Prego caesar salad (RM30) is a clear winner, highly recommended by us and you won’t regret ordering it! The combination of romaine lettuce, poached eggs, bacon, anchovies, crouton, chicken and parmesan is absolutely delightful! The anchovies flavours were perfectly infused to the crunchy greens and eggs were perfectly poached. The dressings were light and flavourful, we could not get enough of this dish.

Gamberetti alla griglia (RM40) spaghetti with grilled tiger prawns, toasted almonds, pickled peppers, lemon. Came out smelling tantalizing. The spaghetti was al dente, and grilled prawns filled with smoky flavors but our only complain was that the overall dish was slightly bland.

Tibia brasata dell’agnello, risotto Milanese (RM68), sparing you with the long complicated name, this dish merely mean in layman terms, braised lamb shank with saffron risotto. A popular order in Prego. While the meat was a fall off the bone texture, we can’t help but hope that it was a bit more tender. We could not find fault in the risotto though. Perfect texture and flavor.

Dessert we recommend you the zuccotto al cioccolato (RM20) Prego’s famous chocolate “mud pie”. While we thought huck’s version was better, this was also every bit as sinful.
