Pronto Restaurant Review

: Those looking for a fast, inexpensive way to satisfy their Italian comfort food craving need turn no further than Pronto. The interior is modern and bright, with Italian movie memorabilia peppering the walls, and diners order at the counter and seat themselves. The reasonably priced Italian and American menu is a notch above the rest, featuring pastas, salads and sandwiches, even pizza from its sister restaurant next door. Starters include fries with garlic, Gorgonzola or Thai chili, while mains range from a grilled meatball panino to baked rigatoni and a crispy Buffalo blue cheese salad.
