Over Priced

The pizza is good but small and way over priced. The salads and sandwiches are nothing to brag about and again, way over priced. Go to the Children's Hospital (CHOP) cafeteria. Better value and great portions of pizza, sandwiches and salad.

Our daughter was in CHOP for a while so we sampled all of e restaurants around the hospital and none was better an Gia Pronto. The salads are made to order and very fresh and the pizza is outstanding. Its not super cheap but well worth it for great food (beat the heck out of the cafeteria).

The place does not resemble an Italian cafe, but the food is great, I like the fact I can choose all toppings and they helped me to understand how ordering works at my first visit.

This regards the nearby Gia Pronto restaurant at the Perelman Center, PennMedicine. This has been open for about a year now - the food is good, fresh and the portions modest. The prices, though, are very expensive and the food, though fresh, is not worth this major markup. Worst of all - the employees - awful service, never accommodating, and... More

Great tasting paninis and sandwitches on the go, but not for cheap.
