Prego, Ponsonby

I dined at Prego earlier this week for a celebratory lunch with some work colleagues.  This was my first visit to Prego and an enjoyable experience.  The service was friendly, knowledgeable and professional and the food equally of a high calibre.

We started with breads, pizza and calamari for the table and the bread had a nice firm crust and a soft centre.  As for the pizza the others at the other end of the table polished that off so I can only assume it was good.  The calamari was served with rocket and garlic aioli and the calamari was nice and tender. 

I had the Saltimbocca for my main, which is a lovely chicken scaloppini dish with lemon parsleyed cream and potatoes.  A couple of my potatoes were a little hard, but other than that this was a nice dish.  I also enjoyed the Arugula rocket salad with balsamic and grana padano.

For dessert I had the creme brulee which had a nice crust, however there was no wow factor with this dish.
