Alfresco dining at Prego Trattoria and Cicchitteria
This Italian word often causes confusion but there are three definitions of prego that this restaurant fully embodies.
Prego can be either ‘You’re welcome’, ‘Can I help you?’, and ‘Please come in’, all of which describes what Prego Trattoria and Cicchitteria is all about—an accommodating and cozy dining place perfect for intimate family gatherings.
While most Italian restaurants are the fancy ones with over the top menus and dishes, here in Prego, it’s more of Italian home-style meals that are served either for sharing or small plates (cicchitteria).
If you’re craving for meats that are good for sharing, have their Black Angus Tenderloin (Php 690) in Porcini mushroom sauce and creamy spinach on the sides.
