Fodor's Expert Review Prato

$$$ Winter Park Dinner Fodor's Choice

Progressive Italian cuisine in a casual, bustling, wood-and-brick setting immediately made Prato a local favorite. Every item, from the pancetta to the amaretti, is crafted from scratch, and many are prepared in one of two imported Italian wood-burning ovens, dubbed Johnny Cash and June Cash because "they make music," the chefs say. The menu changes regularly, but standouts include the duck with black lentils, Florida Bluehouse salmon, and pastas such as rigatoni cacciatore made with shredded rabbit and orange zest. The hand-tossed pizzas are also popular, as are the tiramisu and seasonal gelato.
