Prego restaurant is an award-wining uptown homage to classic Italian cuisine and one of Kuala Lumpur’s most prolific eateries. The two-storey dining space within The Westin Kuala Lumpur offers sophisticated takes on culinary favourites, with the clubby dining room featuring plenty of old world charm. Its décor of polished dark wood tables, backsplash tiles on the open kitchen counters, stained glass ceiling lamps and chrome and glass fixtures creates an instantly modern and cosy feel.
Besides the food, we love the fact that ever so smartly dressed servers are extremely efficient, ensuring diners’ requests are catered to in a flash. Another plus point is this casual restobar has more than reasonable prices (think, RM28 for a pasta dish) - a surprising fact given its location along Jalan Bukit Bintang, and the high quality ingredients used in each dish.
When it comes to the food, the menu at Prego restaurant provides multiple opportunities for a memorable meal, best experienced when shared between two or more. Standouts include handmade pastas like cappelletti di pollo ai funghi (RM38), fat but delicate ravioli filled with tender chicken chunks, sitting on a bed of rich mushroom cream sauce. Another great pasta dish that will not last long on the middle of the table is the pitch-perfect risotto ai funghi selvatici e parmiggiano (RM52), risotto with a velvety sauce of wild mushrooms and parmesan cheese.
While the kitchen certainly puts out creative concoctions (like the RM68 wood fired Prego pizza, with barbecued lobster, red onion jam and olive toppings), its real showstoppers are its comfort food options. For example, pollo allo spidedo con tartufo asparagi e patate (RM82), truffle roasted chicken with crisp, crackling skin accompanied by crunchy sharp asparagus and roasted potato bathed in pan drippings.
At the end of your meal at Prego restaurant, you might be tempted to skip dessert, but we recommend you reserve tummy space for the restaurant’s suitably encyclopaedic selections. Our favourite is the crème brule al pistachio con mousse al caffe (RM22), pistachio custard that is light and creamy, with perfectly crunchy caramelized sugar and fluffy espresso mousse topping it.
Another good option for a sweetly satisfying end to the meal is zuccotto al cioccolato (RM20), a chocolate mud pie that is rich and yet airy, and tiramisu tradizionale (RM22), mascarpone trifle with the right amount of espresso and brandy.
