The shrimp tasted old and the risotto was just a pile of rice. They were gracious and prompt in replacing my meal. The sandwich I got was ok.

New Find

Dined on September 28, 2014

Thanks to OpenTable, Pronto Bistro was a great new find. Looked for a good Sunday brunch and found an outstanding one. Food was fantastic, service very friendly and helpful and peace and quiet was in order for 10:30 on a Sunday morning. Prices were very reasonable as well. Definitely a new favorite for us. Next is dinner, VERY soon.

The ambience is very relaxed and comfortable. The waiter was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The chocolate gelato is to die for. We will be back to sample more on the menu!

Great local Italian eatery

Dined on February 28, 2014

My wife and I have been coming here for years and have always had a good to excellent experience. Came in with a group of 9 of us, including 3 young children and had a great meal as always. The staff is always courteous and friendly. Ron Sr. stopped by to say hi to us and engage the kids. The regular menu offers plenty of options. The specials are always worth a try as well. Beer selection has improved immensly in the last year and the wine list is impressive. We highly recommend this restaurant to those looking to support a local business and looking for a good meal.

Excellent meal

Dined on February 23, 2014

Tucked away in a small shopping center, this restaurant is quite a find! By sheer coincidence, I had dinner here two nights in a row with different groups of friends. Both experiences were wonderful. The staff was knowledgable and attentive. I requested a special order, not listed on the menu, and was presented with exactly what I wanted. It was delicious! The chef is very talented. All of my companions really enjoyed their meals.

Pronto BIstro Surprised Us

Dined on December 1, 2013

We live in the area and have passed this unassuming little restaurant many times without stopping in. But when Open Table sent us a note that they were now using Open Table, we decided to try it. The food was very good, some dishes were outstanding, in particular the Italian Wedding Soup and the pork medallions. And this place is vey affordable. Service was great too. We will be returning.
