I attempted to call for a reservation before an evening performance at the Buffalo Philharmonic which is right across the street from Prospero only to fine that the restaurant has closed...what a shame as we could definitely use a convenient restaurant nearby for Philharmonic attendees...More

It is not on a main street with a large choice of places to eat. Prospero's is in a neighborhood of homes with no other restaurants. Most people visit this neighborhood for the beautiful Saarinien designed Kleinhan's Music Hall and the Philharmonic. Please set your...More

This restaurant is such a cozy little spot with truly great Italian. It is tucked away next to Kleinhan's off Allen. While it is a great spot before a show, make sure you make a reservation as it is a very small restaurant. My husband...More

We went to Prospero for dinner last night. It is a cozy Italian restaurant near Kleinhans. The staff is extremely friendly as soon as you walk in and they make you feel right at home. There are only about 10 or 12 tables so reservations...More
