This is definitely off-center but it was a nice find with a great outdoor seating area in a quiet neighbourhood, full of locals and exempt from tourists.

The service was professional. They even had a sommelier to recommend us a great pairing with what we were ordering.

For staters, we shared:
- Octopus: it wasn’t consisting of large octopus tentacules, like we had expected. Instead, it was small pieces, some already cut. More of a calamari-like dish than octopus. Plus, the pieces were not grilled / charred… only boiled. So the crunchiness and charred taste were missing, sadly.
- Burrata: was almost perfect, being hard-ish on the outside and creamy on the inside… just being a bit too cold still. Had it been a few degrees warmer, it would have been perfect.

For main course, we shared the crab risotto. It was a good-sized portion and generous in vegetables. I can’t say I remember seeing a lot of crab meat in there… but the overall dish was well-balanced and tasty.

Wine list is exhaustive… but as it is the case everywhere in Riga, prices are expensive for what you order.

Great neighbourhood restaurant.

Went with my friend to Prego for a dinner. Absolutely loved the king prawn salad with mango and avocado and my companion said the duck with carrot puree and sweet potatoes was on point. Definitely recommend for the food selection and atmosphere. Live piano was a highlight.

Although the restaurant bears the Italian name the food is rather fusion. The restaurant is located in a very beautiful part of Riga and in summer has an open terrace. Been many times there and it is at the top of the game. Had family dinner on 31 Dec and the next day also visited Prego for brunch. The goulash that was the key dish of the day was incredible! The service on the top. Perfect vine list.

Excellent food, good service and fantastic atmosphere. Have been eating there several times and they keep their high standard. Live music on fridays and saturdays is an extra bonus.
