Prego's our fail-safe, go-to restaurant for hearty and rustic Italian fare. It also serves one of the best risottos around. I was craving some good ol' risotto so we headed there after work.
The BF wanted some pasta so he got the Agnolotti Brasato in Salsa Leggera di Funghi ($28), a variety of ravioli filled with braised beef shank tossed in a porcini mushroom sauce. This was surprisingly less heavy than we expected. We love the flavourful rich beef in the soft dumplings and the delicate mushroom sauce.
I got the 2-course set dinner at $76, with Saffron and Prawn Organic Arborio Rice as my main. The cheerfully-hued risotto was creamy yet pleasantly light, with peppery red and green capsicums cutting through the starch and rich cheese. Succulent cubes of prawns added crunch and texture.
The Dessert-of-the-Day was the Sugar-Free Chocolate Delight, with Sicilian orange and almond milk gelato. The gelato was very airy so you almost don't feel like you're eating dessert, with strawberry and oranges adding tartness. Indulgence without the guilt.
