We just had dinner there the other night had no idea. Love and condolences to you all. He was a beautiful person. He will be deeply missed

We were so deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Vincente just before Christmas, and we promise to pray for the repose of his soul and to pray for comfort and strength for his son Alberto so he can carry this terrible cross and for all the staff at Prego's. My brother, husband, and I ate at Prego's for the first time for lunch when we were scoping out the Triad less than a year ago, and it quickly became our favorite place to diner. We have been back so many times since, always...

I'm so saddened and shocked at the loss of our friend Vicente. My family and I have dined at Prego since it opened. Vicente was always kind, greeted us with hugs and always remembered my girls who have grown up eating homemade pasta from Prego. His passing reminds me that we are all on borrowed time and that the Lord will collect us when he's ready. I still can't believe we won't see him again on our visits to see my parents. Many many thoughts and prayers. Love Gina, Margarita, Nelson et al

We were heart broken to hear the news of Vicente's passing when we went into Prego's for dinner the night after is death. He was the impedimy of a first class person. It was such a pleasure to be greeted by him when you walked into his restaurant, and the service you received from him and his staff, always first class. Our condolences to his staff and family. He will truly be missed.

Always a pleasure to dine at Prego's. We are greatly distressed and saddened to hear the news of Vincente's passing. A true professional, without doubt an outstanding restauranteur who made Prego's the best restaurant in Burlington's history. The cuisine was extraordinary, but most especially because we were slays greeted warmly by Vincente who made us feel like family. One night Vincente brought us pannacotta - which we loved - and like everything else - was delicious and unforgettable....

We were deeply saddened upon hearing of Vicente 's passing this week. The first time I visited Prego's was for my interview luncheon, and I think his wonderful hospitality, love of music and friendly nature helped sway my decision to take the job here in Burlington. He will be missed so very much. Condolences to his family and his many friends, who he treated like family. Dona Nobis Pacem.

Jessica, Alina, and I send our condolences to the family and will miss Vincent's warm greeting at Pregos. We have such wonderful family memories shared there always with the thoughtful kindness and warmth created by Vincent. We share in your loss Karen Mroz

We first ate at Prego's a few years ago when my brother and father came to visit from Asheville. My dad ate the stuffed pepper special and he liked it so much he went back the next day and had it again. He talked about it for days afterwards and when he would come into town, he would call Prego's to ask if they had the stuffed pepper on the menu. My dad eventually learned that everything at Prego's is delicious and he didn't need to holdout until they had this dish on the menu. Every time he...
