For 30 years Prego has been serving honest Italian food combining the highest quality imported ingredients with local seasonal products. Our menu is complemented by carefully chosen wines, creative cocktails and exceptional customer service. As we embark upon a new chapter in the life of Prego, we aim to further our reputation as one of the leading voices in the ever growing community of chef-driven restaurants here in Houston. Whether it is braised veal, smoked duck, roasted butternut squash or Piedmont truffles, we are making all our raviolis in house using the finest semolina flour and local farm eggs. Our signature dishes like Gulf Coast Crab Fingers tossed in roasted garlic lemon butter and Parmesan Crusted Red Snapper topped with Gulf shrimp and ovendried tomatoes remain as shining examples of the consistent quality of our Gulf Coast cuisine. In addition, we now offer a Cheese Plate featuring Texas & Italian cheeses from Houston Dairymaids. We are also proud to offer an entire Gluten-Free Menu built around the delicious corn flour pasta made in Italy by Molino di Ferro. The gluten-free pasta is paired with seasonal ingredients daily and can be substituted for any pasta dish on the menu. Prego continues to support local Texas businesses as we have for years. We are excited to have partnered with a local recycling company as we work to reduce our carbon footprint. We source all of our mushrooms from Kitchen Pride Mushroom Farms located in Gonzales, TX. We only use Texas farm eggs, Texas produce where and whenever possible and grass-fed naturally-raised Texas beef. We are proud to offer Texas beers from Southern Star, St. Arnold, Shiner & Karbach. And don't forget to try one of our signature cocktails as we combine the finest Texas Liquors with an Italian twist. As always, Prego will be featuring different seasonal dishes off the menu too. Whether it is grass-fed Buffalo Tenderloin with truffle butter or Soft Shell Blue Crabs direct from the Gulf, we guarantee Chef John Watt will continue to be at the forefront of Houston's culinary movement, creatively accentuating the quality ingredients that define Prego's cuisine.
To show our support for our local farmer's market, Prego and our sister restaurants, Hugo's, Trevisio and Backstreet Café, participate in the weekly Urban Harvest Farmer's Market.
