Description: Osteria Pronto, located on the lobby level of the JW Marriott hotel in Indianapolis, serves authentic regional Italian Cuisine in a casual and comfortable environment with an approachable price point. From the open kitchen, the culinary team prepares Osteria's menu from scratch with local products and fresh ingredients. The wine list celebrates wines of Italy, with representations from the US and other prominent wine regions worldwide. The bar and lounge feature all day dining and a broad selection of specialty cocktails. "Osteria Pronto: Your neighborhood gathering place!" The word Osteria (oste'ria) in Italian literally means "Tavern" and refers to a casual inexpensive restaurant that is part of a neighborhood's daily lifestyle. Pronto (pron'to), literally means "ready" and is considered to be a friendly and inviting greeting.

We normally do not care for Italian food from Hotels. So we started to leave the hotel when a big storm came up. We did not want to drive around in the storm so we decided to eat at the Osteria Pronto. My husband is Sicilian, so it is hard to get Italian food he likes. We were both very... More

Wait staff was slow and not what I expected at a restaurant recommended so highly but so many. Food was average for the price. One of our party received the wrong order with no offer to replace or refund. There are other places in the downtown Indy area that are better at this price.

We have never experienced service as we did in the lounge of this restaurant. We had eaten a mediocre buffet lunch (conventions were in town) and decided to sit in the lounge after for drinks. The wait staff in the lounge were spectacular and went out of their way (and literally the restaurant) to get us whatever we asked for.... More

Thank you for your review. We believe we have the best Italian menu in the city and rarely have a buffet but from time to time we have more guests in the hotel with limited time for lunch than we can accommodate. I am happy to see that our service made up for it in some way and hope that... More

I had lunch at Osteria Pronto on a quiet Tuesday afternoon. I was waited on promptly by a very upbeat server. I ordered a glass of wine and the Osteria Salad with Organic greens, ricotta salata, strawberries, candied pecans dressed with balsamic vinaigrette. I added the grilled shrimp to the salad. My salad was delivered within 5 minutes, even before... More

The carpaccio is very good. The sea bass on risotto was the best. A solid wine list and very nice atmosphere

Stayed at the Mariott as part of a convention and was looking for an Italian cuisine restaurant, attheRugers suggestion of several people we tried the Osteria Pronto. It has a large seating area with comfortable booths, some of which overlook the busy kitchen. We started with the grilled octopus which was good but a small portion for the price. After... More

The made to order omelets were great. My co- worker stated that I should try the waffles. I did not. He raved about the waffles for 2 days. Now I have to go back to get the waffles.
