New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Down the street from the lauded Gran Forno bakery resides its sit-down sibling, Gran Forno Pronto, an old-fashioned-looking Italian shop with wainscoted walls, black-and-white-tiled floors, and a cast of characters. Tourists and locals drink espresso and Menabrea on a sprawling patio dotted with umbrellas. A busy, graceful pizzaiolo mans a brick oven. A handful of new-in-town Italians works the floor. The people, the menu, the setting, and the price point hit a sweet spot for lunch in particular. Behind the counter sits a beautiful crusty loaf several feet long, stacked with Italian meats, provolone, and arugula. Cakes posed on old-fashioned dishes align the counter. It's tough to order wrong here, especially when it comes to pizza and bread, though a favorite is the meatballs. Milk and bread crumbs from the area's most heavenly bakery ensure that they're light and nearly pillowy. Doused with red sauce and a healthy heap of Parmesan, they're among the most delicious in town.

    Great food -- not so great service. Three people asked for our order, but only one actually brought it to us 30 minutes later.

  • Rochelle B. on 12/23/12

    Dog-friendly, reasonably priced and tasty!

  • VisitLauderdale on 11/19/12

    Make a trip here for lunch and pick up rolls that come out fresh after 11 am.

    According to B-cycle fans and friends, their Chicken Pesto Panini is "The Finest Sandwich in Fort Lauderdale" (Tour de Sandwich 2012). Sooo good. Plus, 10% off your whole bill with a B-cycle card!

  • Billie Anne H. on 12/28/11

    The sandwiches are unbelievably delicious, but come early as they often sell out!
