Discover the secret behind two decades of PREGO’s delightful Italian flavors.
Remarkable Beginnings on Koh Samui
The PREGO story began on September 18, 2003, at Amari Koh Samui, where the first restaurant captivated diners with genuine Italian tastes crafted from top-quality ingredients. Becoming a must-visit destination on Koh Samui, PREGO’s vibrant and legitimate Italian dining experience attracted locals and tourists alike.
Chef Marco Boscaini’s menu reflects his early days in his Nonna’s (grandmother’s) kitchen, encapsulating PREGO’s exceptional flavor. Among its unique dishes, PREGO is the only restaurant in Thailand to offer the renowned Risotto, recognized as one of the top 100 dishes by Gallo Guide. High-quality ingredients, home-style preparation, and décor that takes guests to Italy combine to provide a singular dining experience.
ONYX Hospitality Group’s Vision for PREGO
Fueled by a vision to build an authentic Italian restaurant in Thailand and a deep admiration for Chef Marco Boscaini’s culinary expertise, PREGO was born under the ONYX Hospitality Group. The group is a key player in hotel, resort, serviced apartment, spa, and restaurant management, known for its ambition to be “The Best Medium-sized Hospitality Management Company in Southeast Asia.” Under ONYX’s management, PREGO has experienced continuous growth while maintaining the high standards of food and service that customers expect from this premium home-style restaurant.
Expansion to Bangkok, Pattaya, and Beyond
PREGO has broadened its culinary reach, not only within Thailand (with locations in Koh Samui, Bangkok, and Pattaya) but also internationally in the Maldives, operating under the name “PREGOLINO.” With consistently positive feedback and a growing fan base, ONYX Hospitality Group plans to introduce new branches in other key tourist destinations. The latest addition is set to open at the renowned Kata Beach in Phuket in early 2024.
PREGOLINO: A Fun-sized PREGO Experience
ONYX Hospitality Group continues to develop the PREGO brand to cater to those who appreciate original Italian cuisine and a warm, lively ambiance. This includes the expansion of the “PREGOLINO” brand, a smaller version of PREGO that still offers high-quality Italian cuisine amid an enjoyable atmosphere. The first PREGOLINO is now open at Amari Raaya Maldives.
