The good food was the saving grace. We choose Prato for a cheese pizza for our daughter. This was rated by TripAdvisor as the #1 pizza/Italian place in Winter Park. I enjoyed the grilled eggplant. My husband enjoyed half orders of two different pasta dishes. We both had glasses of Barolo.

The restaurant was filled with young adults in their 20s and the servers are young as well. The decor is supposed to be rustic. The servers were wearing plaid shirts. It seemed strange to see this "rustic" style in Winter Park but our server said it was because of the "farm-to-table" concept of the restaurant.

The restaurant is small and the long bar takes up a great deal of space in the center.

I can't believe this place is only open for dinner. It is very casual and seems more like a lunch place.

Our order was served as if we were ordering tapas. It was not all brought out together. My daughter was served first, then my plate came, and, last, my husband's food. That was very strange.

If the food were below average, this would be a terrible place, but the food was good. My husband and I enjoyed our selections. Our daughter's cheese pizza, though, was very average. I would not consider this a good pizza restaurant but it was fine if you just want to socialize with drinks and food of any kind on Park Avenue.

An older crowd was down the street at another Italian restaurant, Panullo's. I guess the large bar at Prato is why Prato was filled with only young adults.

If you want to enjoy the creative comfort foods cuisine you'll need to book reservations way ahead of time. And the food and atmosphere so worth it. Every time we visit Orlando, my daughter makes sure this a must visit evening out and we always start with the one of kind meatball appetizers. We love them so much sometimes we order a few rounds of them. Yum!

No denying that the food is delicious. I don't generally like mussels but my mom ordered them and these were AMAZING. Menu changes fairly often so I'll definitely have to go back! Fairly dark inside so I prefer to get an outdoor table, but great service and fun area to walk around before/after dinner.
