Critic's review

Siphiwe Mpye

Food

Pronto has a big, primarily (but not exclusively) Italian menu. The portions are generous and the flavours sensational. They serve a breakfast, lunch and dinner, so the menu is appropriately large. Italian staples include a gnocchi starter (served with a cheesy sauce and sprinkled with pieces of crispy panchetta), assorted pizzas and lasagne.

The seafood stew, with prawns and mussels, tastes almost like the ocean itself. It usually comes with ciabatta, but our waiter, to his credit, recommended pasta, and the linguine suited the dish perfectly. The meatballs are generous, with a perfect sauce. You can buy it at the small deli section, along with freshly baked bread and cured meats.

The dessert menu demands its own space in the belly: tiramisu, dark chocolate mousse, crème brúlée, home-made gelati and a few other ways to beat the blues, with mascarpone featuring prominently as a weapon of choice.

Ambience

Neighbourhood eatery meets sophisticated casual.

Service

Warm, cozy, confident and welcoming.

Drinks

There’s a wine bar on the premises, so the wine list is healthy, international and competitively priced.

User reviews

  • Pronto is a firm family favourite. Every visit to this establishment has left us feeling full and satisfied. Their vegetarian options are various and delicious! I thoroughly enjoy their peppadew and feta panzerotti. Their portions are generous so the price you pay is more-or-less justified. The service has always been good, the waiters are friendly and happy to give suggestions. Pronto's menu hasn't changed much in the years I've been going there but for now, there isn't a need to. Pronto is perfect for date night, a night out with family or a chilled lunch with friends or even just a casual breakfast.

  • Pronto is always full in the evenings. The food is great and there is a wide variety. The thin-based pizzas are great as are the polenta dishes.
