Despite rumors, Pronto is no longer associated with its neighboring restaurant Pizzeria Molto, though the owners and chefs still maintain camaraderie. Pronto is a convenient, healthy and upscale choice for any occasion. Salads and wraps are made to order, or for quick service, prepared slightly ahead of time. I had the pleasure of trying all of the salad dressings and enjoyed them all. Many of the dressings are yogurt-based as well, and the quality is impeccable. Making your own salad or wrap or pizza is also an interesting option. The staff is extremely inviting and accommodating to requests. Stop in; you will leave satisfied.

Notable Dishes:

-The Southwestern Salad or Wrap is prepared with fresh romaine, grilled chicken, avocado, tomato, homemade corn and black bean salsa, pepper jack cheese and a homemade chipotle ranch dressing. (Warning: This food is addictive.)

-If you are in the mood for a classic, they make one of the best Caesar salads I have ever had. It is crisp, refreshing and full of flavor. The Caesar is a yogurt-based dressing that can be loaded on guilt-free.

-The Big Boy Meat Pie is a flavorful, filling pizza: sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, mozzarella and cherry peppers finished pizzawith homemade hot oil, made from Jamaican scotch bonnet peppers.

-The Original Chicken Pie is also excellent: arugula pesto, grilled chicken, caramelized onions, prosciutto, pears and mozzarella, topped with a balsamic reduction glaze.
