One of Singapore’s favourite Italian restaurant unveils a new look and enhanced dining concept to offer guests an authentic Italian family-style experience. Prego is an Italian Trattoria, expressed in every aspect of the restaurant - from the service style and communal dining to decor featuring parmesan wheels, Italian prosciutto and sausages hanging from the awnings, to wood dining tables and carts for wine service by the glass, which gives an overall feel of a true Italian restaurant.
Had a really pleasant time there this evening celebrating the birthday of my boyfriend. Special thanks to Emma Xiang, who provided us with warm and excellent service, allowing us to dine in at the restaurant with this berry cheesecake (a huge generous amount of berries and a delightful chocolate base for the cheese), and personally wishing my boyfriend a happy birthday :) We had already had our dinner elsewhere and it was an exception for us to have this take-away cake there, so we really appreciate the flexibility provided and I would recommend this place for the great service and ambience!
Prego is located at the first floor of the hotel. The restaurant has a huge dine in area. The restaurant offers Italian cuisine and is quite well known for its authentic Italian family style dishes. Recently there was a credit card 1-for-1 offer for its CHEF'S DINNER SET MENU ($69++) which valid till 17 April 2016. The set meal consisted of choice of Antipasti (Hot and Cold Starters) + Primi Piatti (Pastas & Risotto) + Chef Daily Special + DOLCI (Dessert). I decided to take up this offer. We were showed to a table by the window, which offered a great of the busy street outside. After placing our orders, we were served a box which consisted of 2 kinds of bread and the creamy cheese spread. If one did not like the spread, there was also olive oil and vinegar available at the table. I was kind of disappointed that the bread was not served warm. We started the meal with Antipasti : Insalata Caprese (usual $24++) Vine Ripened Tomato, Buffalo Mozzarella, Basil, White Balsamic Vinaigrette Simple but appetizing dish to start with. Prosciutto di Parma (usual $24++) 18 Months Aged Parma Ham, Rock Melon, Balsamic Reduction The sweet juicy melon was balanced by the salty ham. For the Primi Piatti : Penne Carbonara (usual $32++) Crispy Pork Pancetta, Fresh Cream, Egg, Parmesan The dish was rich and creamy. I was sightly disappointed in the Crispy Pork Pancetta which turned out to be just fried bacon pieces. Fusilli al Granchio (usual $38++) Crabmeat, Asparagus, Sundried Tomatoes, Creamy Sauce There was chunks of crab meat which I like. The sundried tomatoes did not have much flavour in this dish. Disappointed. Next we had the Chef Daily Special which turned out to be Roasted Chicken. The chicken was quite tender. But both of us were too full for it. Lastly for dessert : Panna Cotta (usual $14++) Vanilla Panna Cotta Raspberry Sauce, Anise Cookies The dessert was milky and creamy, served with pieces of strawberry and kiwi. Lemon Sorbetto (usual $14++) It was lemony and refreshing to taste. There was crumbles under the scoop which balanced the sour taste. The single scoop was topped with juicy berries. Overall the food was not bad but the serving was too much for 2 females and we could not finish them. We were full after having the pasta dishes. Audrey had the roasted chicken take-away as she could not eat anymore. I felt that the standard of the pasta dishes had dropped alot when compared to my previous visit. As the restaurant was crowded, it was very difficult to get the attention of the staffs available. Water was not refilled until we were able to get the attention of the staffs to do so.
Complimentary bread was awesome.
Carbonara was good - had a really good smoky flavour. Not too creamy. Big portions.
Panna Cotta - not fantastic, too big, unrefined, lacked flavour, too little berries & sauce.
