We really like Prego's ... Service is good, its child friendly, and they serve really good food. Nice (BIG!) loaf of bread to start, served with olive tapanade, freshly sliced cheese, and a garlic oil dip too.
Biggest surprise? Turn to the back of the menu, there is an entire page of hams (Yes, pork!) served by the 100gms, as well as 4 or 5 pizzas with pork content. We had one :-) and it was really good! Calabrese pizza, 75 AED. This had real pork cured ham, and lots of delicious juicy peppers.
Garganelli with atlantic salmon, 70 AED.
Taglionlini Nero, or squid ink pasta with a pesto sauce and delicious prawns, 78 AED.
We had a one litre bottle of San Pellegrino sparkling water (31 AED) with our food, and together with the service charge and tourism fee, the bill came up to 295 AED for the three of us.
