Absolutely delicious! One of our favorite restaurants in Santa Teresa. Ate there delicious food over 5 times (even hit them up on our last day for a final fix). The owners are great! We tried the chicken parmigiana (my husbands favorite), the veggie (pesto bechamel) lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, veggie sandwich, quiche, stuffed peppers and focaccia bread. Everything was exceptionally good and kept us coming back for more. Prices are reasonable, you can easily feed two people for less than $20 USD. If your in Santa Teresa Pronto is a must! The new covered seating area is also a bonus!

So sad that we found this place on the last day. Go here immediately. Now, for lunch. Or for dinner if it's later. Should you go? Are you even hungry yet? Doesn't matter.

Great Italian Food in Santa Teresa Costa Rica, here in the tropics far away from everything! Who woulda thunk it?
But, Giuseppe & Kamila make outstanding authentic Italian dishes from scratch everyday. They have a large variety of items, and everything is fresh and delicious. It is all pre-made each day, so you can just stop by when you're hungry and get a quick bit. You don't have to wait for service, etc. You just order at the counter, they heat it up & give it to you, and you can sit down and eat under a shade tree there, or take it with you.
The prices are very good at Pronto. Eating out in Santa Teresa is too expensive, but this is the best place because you can get a good meal or a snack at a fair price and feel full.
The arancini are amazing! The meatball sandwich on their own bread is large, filling, and delicious. The various focaccias are terrific, and make a great, cheap, quick snack or addition to any meal or salad. There is enough variety to get something different everyday, and always leave satisfied.

The foccacia is unbelievable and the PERFECT size for a quick bite. I ordered it with a green salad and it was the perfect quick lunch for under ten bucks! Yum!
