Been to this restaurant a few times and my expectation is always met with excellent service and outstanding food. It's dependably good, reliably good. Even in large groups... They get it right. The pasta is superb, especially the salmon, peas and vodka..... Wow!

We visited quite a number of Mediterranean restaurants in the past but Pronto's meals were the best. The pasta was delicious and the wine the waiter suggested was excellent. Well done. ..see you soon
