Prego and its longtime chef, John Watt, have been serving solid Italian food in Rice Village for well over a decade, and yet the menu at this mahogany-accented trattoria never seems stale. Watt keeps it fresh with seasonal changes and daily specials such as pumpkin seed-crusted red snapper or Peroni-braised heirloom Berkshire pork belly. Along with a full bar and some of the most affable bartenders around, it’s also one of the few Italian restaurants in the city to offer a substantial gluten-free menu.
