Good

The name is now Pronto, their pasta was good so was the pizza, I prefer a thinner crust. The place is absolutely no frills. It's a good family place, it's a little hole on the wall.

Had to get dinner and this was fortunately a stroll away from our hotel. Great food. Very nice service. Wish I could've sat down to enjoy but my little mad hatter of a toddler wouldn't allow it. Give it a try, people. You'll love the authentic dishes.

This is a small family run place with great food. I ate at a few of the Italian places while visiting SSF and this was the favorite. It doesn't have a bar with TV ,it is small and cozy with mostly locals. The name is now Prontos.

Been to this restaurant several times and the food is always hot and yummy. Service is slow if its crowed but the food still is worth the wait.

Please see my review under Pronto Lasagneria. The reason I'm writing this is that we went looking for Cecilia's Pizza and Italian and this is the restaurant now located there.

I tried this pizza on the recommendation of the hotel at which I was staying for one night. The chef made us a very nice pizza with pepperoni and fresh peppers. The wine we ordered was exceptional, a lovely Chianti wine

The best pasta alla arrabiata that I have ever eaten. Excellent service, very fast, and the food tasted home made. I highly recommend this restaurant. We called in from our hotel room and was told it would take 40 minutes. I don't think it took more than 20 minutes when they delivered it. I like Italian food but think that... More
