Used to look forward to dining at Prego as I held it up as the benchmark for good Italian food, but not so anymore. It's still good but standards have dropped. They do offer a set dinner for $69++ and with the Raffles card, you get half off but still overpriced. However they still do good desserts !
Food: A large group of us ordered a variety of food. I had the fried calamari rings - size sized but tasty and well fried. Served it with a salsa sauce but I prfer tartare sauce - it came later after I requested. The pasta was pene pasta with crab sauce-two lumps of crab meat but the rest were crab flakes, presumbly from frozen crab. Pene was underdone and too al dente, even for me although I prefrer al dente textures. The mains for the set dinner was turkey that night and I requested if to be changed. They provided barramundi - which is a high class name for "kim bak loh". Well fried and tasty. Dessert was tiramisu and that is where they live up to their reputation as THE Italian restaurant - best tiramisu I've tasted in some time.
Others ordered: Chicken - reasonablye well done with rosemary dressing; pama ham (which I don't thinks was from parma - the salt is different), Caesar's salad - good.
Value: Reasonable value using the Raffles card. Not good value if not.
Ambience: Busy, clean, noisy well airconditioned.
Service: Lacking, had to remind the waiters 3x to get a second basket of bread for the large group that were seated together !
