Prego, Irvine - what's happening??

  • 1

Prego was not the best restaurant in the world, but for OC it has been a pretty dependably decent Italian restaurant, especially since their change in ownership a couple of years ago. Ugo the new owner, is a good chef, and Dennis, their long-time bartender, is a classic...one of southern CA's best mixoligists. Unfortunately, they suffered a devastating kitchen fire about 2 weeks ago, and are closed now, and perhaps indefinitely. Has anyone heard anything about whether they will rebuild and reopen?? I hope so!
