Firmly established as one of central KL’s more popular dining destinations, Prego at The Westin Kuala Lumpur is a modern Italian restaurant serving a well-executed, authentic cuisine in a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere. Prego deftly blends a sleek, contemporary decor, set spaciously across two levels, with a warm and engaging service ethos, to create a dining atmosphere that appeals across a broad spectrum of diners. Popular for both business lunches and casual dinners, Prego offers a first-rate dining experience at a remarkably approachable price level. A signature restaurant concept of Westin hotels in the Asia Pacific region, Prego is renowned locally for its unique “Bubbalicious” concept for Sunday Brunch- an exciting weekly event that attracts crowds of families and friends to indulge in an extravagant offering of classic Italian fare, accompanied by attractive free flow packages of fine wines and champagne.

The Bubbalicious concept combines buffet selections of appetizers, salads and fresh shellfish, with rustic traditional Italian dishes such as pasta, pizza, and grilled meats and seafood that are prepared “a la minute” at the live cooking stations, and served personally at the table side by the Prego chefs. The interior receives a makeover for each Sunday, with colorful banners, balloons and casual staff attire transforming the restaurant and making for a welcoming and entertaining dining occasion- evoking the classic “la dolce vita” of an Italian family home-cooked feast.

During the week, Prego serves lunch and dinner from an a la carte menu of Italian cuisine, presenting guests with enticing selections of both hearty traditional dishes, interspersed with some innovative modern interpretations. Standout dishes include the Branzino In Crosta di Sale, Patate Novelle al Vapore, Burro al Limone – salt crusted sea bass served with steamed new potatoes and lemon butter sauce; and Pollo Alla Parmigiana – Parmesan Crumbed Chicken Breast, Tomato, Oregano and Mozzarella. Pizzas are always a popular choice at Prego- expertly cooked in the impressive wood-fired oven that is the centrepiece of the open kitchen at Prego. Other dishes include a wide range of home-made pastas, and a good selection of classic Italian desserts such as The Tiramisu Tradizionale; and Gianduiotto Di Torino Hazelnut chocolate from Turin topped with hazelnut ice cream.

Beverages served include a wide range of red and white wines, Prosecco and Champagne, beers and spirits- including Italian grappas.  And for non-alcoholic refreshment select from- fruit juices, soft drinks, mocktails, smoothies, iced teas and premium quality Illy coffee.
