Prego vows tasty fare at fair price
Located in the heart of West University, Prego restaurant is much like the popular neighborhood trattorias of Italy — it's a relaxed, chef-driven neighborhood restaurant serving classic and creative Italian food to many loyal Houstonians since 1987.
The fare combines the highest quality imported Italian ingredients available with local and seasonal products. Prego recently added some new elements: an expanded bar area and copper accents, and the façade has been freshened up with overflowing planter boxes full of flowers, herbs and blooming vines. Stop in to find out why this restaurant has been a stand-out for so long.
