Amazing food – I celebrated my 25th birthday here last night and I have nothing but great memories. The food was excellent and the staff was awesome. I had a party of 20 people and not once did our waiter look annoyed. When I walked in and was met by Eric I felt so at ease and in great hands. He made sure we were all comfortable during our experiance. Even though they don't have a children's menu my son loved the pasta and wants me to take him again. This is a restaurant I will be suggesting to my friends and I will be coming to on a regular basis.

best kept secret! – I work for a company that owns and operates some of the best restaurants in La and Vegas so it takes quite a lot to chance a special occasion at an unknown restaurant. I did just that a year ago at Prosecco and it is now my go to place for a celebration. The reviews here are so random that I had to write. I have been there 4 times this year and every time I am so impressed with every detail. Eric always treats us like were VIP's. The tables are not squished together like some restaurants, especially in the back which is our favorite place. The waiters are always so nice to us and helpful. They never belittle us or rush us. It truely is a wonderful experience going to a restaurant where you know the food will be delicious, the service is A plus, and you leave feeling positive about the experience. Thank you for always treating us so good and more importantly for the wonderful tarragon pasta. You and your staff made our anniversary really wonderful. See you soon.

WOW...Thank You - Thank You - THANK YOU.

Especially, coming from folks in "Our Field". As you know, the daily pressures to produce fine products is a chore, yet so rewarding too.

Good Food, Pretty Restaurant, Average-Poor Service – My husband and I went to Prosecco for dinner the other night. It was busy but not crowded and we were greeted politely by the Maitre 'd, who I suppose is Eric based on previous reviews. We were presented with the specials and the menu is well-rounded with some really good-sounding dishes. Our waiter, an actor-looking wannabe with spiked jet-black hair, came by after about 15 minutes to take our order. He seemed disinterested and rather unfriendly (I guess I'm used to waiters/waitresses who smile, introduce themselves, and have some personality to them).Our appetizers and entrees came and at no point did someone come over to ask us if we were enjoying our meals (which we did, by the way). Our drinks were empty, and it was up to me to get out of my seat to let someone know we needed more to drink. We waited awhile longer for our plates to be cleared, even more to be told about dessert, and then awhile more for the check. In summary, the ambiance is pretty, the food tasty, but the service is lacking. I am a very patient person, especially if a restaurant is packed or short-staffed, neither of which Prosecco was. Based on the lack of service, I wouldn't go back.

I wanted to take this time and "thank you" for your mixed review. We have to take the good with the bad. With that, your criticism shall now be taken, as we will turn it into a positive, in order to continue for another 13 years.

Simply Wonderful – As someone who eats @ Prosecco at least 50 times a year (no exaggeration) - I recommend Prosecco to anyone and everyone. I take most of my business lunches there; the food is excellent and you can have a conversation without having to shout. In the past few years I've taken over 150 different people to lunch there (again, no exaggeration) and NOT ONE hasn't enjoyed it... Most go back on there own. I make sure I introduce my guests by name to Eric and his staff, so they will enjoy the experience with or without me there in the future.

For a relaxing or romantic dinner, there is not a better spot in the Valley. Even when the place is packed, the quality of the meals remains remarkably consistant and always delicious (Try the Fetticini with Pork/Herb Meatballs or the Farfalla with Chicken!!!). At their busiest, Bryan, Eric, Wanda, & the rest of the staff are always friendly and provide a level of service that you don't experience in 95% of most other restaurants.

I do not generally post in open forums like this - but after reading Tragicgnat's postings I felt compelled to offer a different view.... Because it sounds so out of character for Eric and his staff. I simply cannot believe that ANYONE, let alone the owner of the restaurant - would leave you alone in a seat at the front for 4 minutes, let alone 40 (?!?!?) without offering to get you a drink or follow up with you on your guest(s).

I would encourage anyone, be they local or here visiting in Los Angeles - to try Prosecco for lunch or dinner. I believe that after just one visit, you will be as I was - "Hooked". ;o)

Not the Classy Place it Pretends to Be – Eric, re-reading your comments to me below proves what I was saying very aptly. To quote: "WOW, that screen name, just says it all... I'm assessing you were having a bad day. Hence needing a target to take your aggressions out on, and I just happen to be the man, in your line of fire."

Well assess this: MY behavior was polite and friendly at all times; I was pleasant, smiling, softspoken - YOURS was not. Perhaps you feel that women using words you don't know how to spell equals "aggressions" in your book. I didn't NEED a target, I was MADE one by your bad manners. Your lack of a gentlemanly response underscores my point even further: despite the fancy atmosphere of your restaurant, you, sir, have no class.

Great atmosphere with pretty good food! – My boss has been going here for years and so when a group of co-workers and I wanted to go out to dinner, we decided to try this place out. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The atmosphere is great and I think this restaurant would be good for a date, casual dining with friends, or even a business meeting. Unfortunately, after we were seated and handed our menus, we were pretty much ignored. In fact, eventually someone from the table had to get up and ask for our server to attend to us. Now when we did have our server's attention, he was very pleasant and helpful with explaining the menu and making recommendations. It took awhile for our food to come out, and when it did, it was pretty good though I thought a little high in price for what we got. When it came time for the check, once again our waiter was nowhere to be found, so we had to flag down a bus boy to get our server for us. I'm willing to give this restaurant the benefit of the doubt that they might have been short handed on the Thursday night that we went. I think the food was pretty good but I wouldn't recommend it as a first choice restaurant. I would've loved to have adored this restaurant and make it a regular for me, and I was disappointed that I didn't like it more.

Thank you for your words of input, "WE" will take & make extra steps, to work on improving, this unfortunate matter, back in early December for your staff Holiday gathering. I always welcome words of critique, in order to keep us around for another 12 years.

Amazing Tuscan Food & Service In The Valley – Brought my boyfriend here to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Eric & his Waitresses, along with the amazing Busboy, just rolled out the red carpet for us. Such a welcome feeling, in exceptance of alternative lifestyle. No one in the place, even batted an eye (not that I would care). The food, wine & bread pudding, just sent us over the edge. Anyone would be just plain out of there mind, if they thought otherwise. Rumor has it, they have been there for about 12 years now. REMARKABLE !!!!

Eric is the coup de grace! – We have ALWAYS enjoyed our lunches and/or dinners at Prosecco. We bring out-of-town guest and relatives to enjoy the ambience and Eric's attentiveness to our experience. Eric has always been engaging and aware of our needs before we are. Highly recommend this refined menu and service.

Excellent food, not a great experience (for me). – Very nice food. We had all the appetizers and several of the entrees, loved them - but the evening was overshadowed by Eric's supercilious attitude. I was to meet a party who evidently hadn't arrived yet, and instead of inviting me to see if they were there or show me the reservation list, he sneered something like "well maybe your date ran away" and proceeded to turn his back and ignore me for 40 minutes. It would have been nice to be offered a drink or even a menu while I sat embarassed near the door... when I eventually wondered out loud if my party had called or something, he scowled at me and snapped "NO, all the reservations have been filled" and acted like he was going to shoo me out. I leaned over and spotted my party's name on the list, one of whom had arrived unbeknownst to me - she'd been seated right away. When I found the name on the list, there was no acknowledgement, no smile, no "right this way", just a flap of the menu in the right direction and a dismissive grunt to our server. I got a very unwelcome feeling like I was some kind of bum or wasn't dressed nicely enough, looked cool enough, or some other variation of are-you-still-here, why-haven't-you-left-yet. (By the way I am a woman, was dressed neatly and always comport myself politely in restaurants and everywhere else.) Nice food but that guy is just too ultra-cool (or something) for me. I won't be back.

Miss Tragicnat, (WOW, that screen name, just says it all)

After reading your most interesting review/comments, I will have to state that, I'm assessing you were having a bad day. Hence needing a target to take your aggressions out on, and I just happen to be the man, in your line of fire. I am a business man and along with being in this business for close to 30 years, I have always learned to NEVER, bite the hands that are looking to be feed. I would gain nothing, but sure would lose a lot more. I still stand tall and proud by my words in every review I have responded to here, along with my everyday being. My staff and I strive on making each and every persons visit a personal one.
