Located in the small, bustling area of Houston known as Rice Village, Prego is much like the popular neighborhood trattorias of Italy.
Together with partner Tracy Vaught, executive chef John Watt has fine-tuned the casual, Italian-style trattoria into a sharply focused restaurant in contention for the city's top culinary honors. Prego has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Bon Appetit, Texas Monthly, among others, and was named "Houston's Best Kept Secret" by Money Magazine. Other accolades include consecutive Awards of Excellence from Wine Spectator (1998 - 2010) and two guest appearances at America's foremost culinary institution, The James Beard Foundation in New York City. John Watt has been consistently voted one of Houston's top chefs year after year.
