Welcome to Pronto, where our love for food and culinary adventures takes center stage! As Julia Child once said, "People who love to eat are the best people," and we couldn't agree more!


Our journey in the culinary world began in 2010, right here in Chicago, when Giuseppe auditioned for the prestigious US Masterchef TV program with the renowned Gordon Ramsay. Not only did he secure a spot on the show, but he even made it to the top 10! This experience ignited our passion for food, leading us to explore and indulge in dining and cooking experiences across different countries.


Inspired by our travels and armed with cherished family recipes from southern Italy, we opened the doors to the original Pronto Italian Street Food in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Starting as a small takeout shop on the North side of town, we crafted mouthwatering dishes like lasagnas, chicken and eggplant parmigiana sandwiches, arancini, and focaccia, all made with love and authenticity.


Over the years, our dedication to culinary excellence propelled us to expand our location and menu. In August 2020, our dream came true as we opened our stunning new location in Plaza Wave, Santa Teresa. We are incredibly proud and excited to have grown so much in just 10 years, enabling us to offer an even wider variety of delectable options.


At Pronto, we take pride in delivering an authentic Italian experience. Indulge in our mouthwatering Pizza Napoletana, savor the flavors of fresh pastas, and relish our selection of meats and fish. Our full-service bar is manned by highly trained mixologists who will craft the perfect drink to complement your meal.


We are thrilled to have you join us on this culinary journey. At Pronto, we strive to create a Little Italy experience that will delight your taste buds and warm your heart. Thank you for being a part of our story, and we look forward to serving you with passion and excellence.


Buon appetito!
