The first time we went here in the fall of 2015, it felt great. I recall thinking the food was good and a fun atmosphere. Fast forward to February 2017. Like a fool, we ordered at the counter, paid with a card and I tipped 20% before any service was provided. Bad habit. Then, nadda. We had to ask where... More

I had a late lunch with family here - we brought the dog! The outdoor bistro tables are set behind a low iron gate, making it convenient and safe for a pet despite the nearby road. We each enjoyed our meals - I had the grilled pesto and cheese sandwich. No hot drinks but they are easy to find elsewhere... More

Stopped here for lunch on a recommendation for the Thai Chili fries. Took one order of the fries and an Alfredo Pasta. We got the food after around a 10 minute wait I wasn't expecting the Thai chili fries to be big, but they are big. You get a whole plate. The best part is they're soooo gooood... And the... More

The menu is very good and offers some newer items that aren't in every Italian restaurant. The quality was ok and didn't match up with expectations. Service is very friendly but my entree came out before i was done with the appetizer.

A wide selection of appetizers, pizza, and pasta was laid out buffet style only assistants were there to serve it and answer questions. The variety was out of the ordinary. My favorites included the Bartlett pear and Blue cheese pizza, crab and artichoke dip, house-smoked salmon, and the fried raviolis.

Love coming to this place in the summer to enjoy some good food and a pitcher of Sangria. Seating inside and out, the customer service is hit and miss but the food makes up for it.

Pronto is the name and this is what is selling--tasty food served quickly so you can eat and get back to work. I met a friend at the lunch hour and we each ordered salad: Cobb and Italian Chop. They were both fresh, good tasting and filling. I'd go again and if I worked nearby it would be a regular... More

Paesanos in the Handle District of Sacramento offers Italian food in a trendy but comfortable restaurant. It's close to downtown which is a big plus if you are in the capital on business. We stopped by recently for lunch and I had the spaghetti carbonara, which was loaded with smoked bacon. The pasta came dressed in a garlic cream sauce,... More

Had dinner here twice in one week - busy place - sat at the bar once, table another time. Pizza's are good - we had the Veggie - lots of garlic so if you don't like garlic tell them to go easy on it. about 12" diameter but very filling - and very good. They have some craft beers but... More

Pronto is a casual-dining experience offering good (but not great) Italian food. They have a large selection of pasta dishes, including lasagna and fettuccine, as well as meat dishes. I ordered the special of the day: a spinach and "crispy" prosciutto cannelloni dish. The marinara sauce was good, but I found the prosciutto more chewy than crispy. Wouldn't order it... More
