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.

“Very Good Food, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Love that the menu has choices other than lasagna and spaghetti. The service was some of the best we've had (request Mike) in awhile. From the moment we sat down we knew we were in good hands. I hate going to an upscale restaurant that has fast food service, not to worry here. Their version of calamari (they've added thin sliced vegetables) is a must as is their tiramisu. My wife's sea bass and risotto were top notch. The soups were average, next time we'll go with salads. We had made reservations months in advance and our table was just OK. But all in all a very good dinning experience. If you're staying at the JW eating here is a no brainer.

“Motel restaurant really?????”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Actual fine Italian food in a motel restaurant. Typically motel eateries seem to rely on a captive audience that isn't very adventurous. Osteria Pronto was great!!!!! Excellent food and wine at a reasonable price (considering the quality).

“Excellent food, huge servings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

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 with 2 meals. The prices are a bit high but you get great value for the money. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful Italian dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

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 the upscale, yet casual setting where conversation was possible.

“Upscale, casual hotel restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

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.
