Excellent food, huge servings

The calamari appetizer was delicious and different from any I've had before, with vegetables and a nice dressing. The pizza was also delicious. Watch out though, because the portions are huge and I ordered way too much food for one person just by getting an appetizer and a main course. I ended up... read more

Three of us had dinner here recently, and we all were very pleased. We all had different choices, and no one was disappointed. The salads were very fresh, tasty, and eye-appealing too. We all chose pasta dishes since the entrees were a bit pricey. My lasagna was superb, probably the best I've had. The service was excellent, and we appreciated... More

A good choice when staying at the JW Marriott hotel. The restaurant is attractive and our service was excellent. Better than average food, but not Michellin quality.

The food was amazing - but the service was a bit on the slow side. Could be because they make all of their orders as they receive them so it's fresh but the waiter could have been more attentive. We joined our party 20 minutes later than the rest and we didn't see the waiter until the appetizers were finally... More

I had dinner here and it was an all-around great experience. The dress-code is casual and prices are very reasonable, yet the restaurant has a more upscale feel to it. The service was wonderful. Our waiter showed just the right amount of attentiveness - we always had what we needed, but it wasn't so excessive that we were being interrupted... More

I'm always hesitant to try hotel restaurants, although by being open-minded and taking a chance, I have occasionally found gems. This falls into the "gem" category. I had worried also that the very reasonable prices were too low for an upscale hotel. Not to worry, the food was fantastic. The entrees we tried were a bit on the small side,... More

Hosted two work dinners here. Both family style dining for groups between 20-40 people. Service was excellent! Food was outstanding. Hope to use this restaurant again when in Indianapolis. By the way, loved the meatballs!

Ate here during a business luncheon and greatly enjoyed the salmon ceasar salad. The bread was also delicious but the music was a little loud and made conversing difficult at times.

I was in town for a conference and wanted to take a few clients out to dinner. Someone recommended Osteria Pronto so we decided to dine there. We were not disappointed. The service and food exceeded our group's expectations. I travel throughout this country and have dined in the finest restaurants, therefore I am hard to impress. I would have... More
