At the beginning of the month, I visited Pronto for the first time. Whilst the service wasn’t super speedy, it didn’t stop me from going back again last week. The food was just too tempting to stay away from and it is pleasantly affordable, which is always a great find for someone who spends far too much on food. The sandwich prices, for example, range from $7 to $8.50 and I think that is a bargain for a casual lunch.

I ordered the meatball sandwich, which was jam-packed with house-made meatballs, provolone cheese, and a deliciously rich pomodoro sauce. It was extremely messy to eat but the flavours were worth making a pig of myself over. The porchetta sandwich was an obvious choice for B, who just couldn’t resist the porky goodness. Again, this was jam-packed (as you can see from the photo) and one thing that I will say about Pronto is that they are extremely generous with their sandwich fillings.

Meatball Sandwich – $8.50

Porchetta Sandwich – $8

It was a bit cooler the day we returned so we didn’t opt for the sunny outdoor patio, but instead sat in the cute, cozy dining room. As you can see from the above photo of the interior, it is very stylized (almost retro) but effortlessly so.

As I mentioned in my first post about Pronto, the menu consists mostly of porchetta (Italian roast pork), as well as other Italian-inspired panini, sandwiches, pastas, and limited sides. I’ve yet to return on a weeknight so I’m looking forward to tucking into some pasta on my next visit (even though the sandwiches are great).
