Houston Press' Description

This comfortable counter-service restaurant is the casual cousin to Nino's and Vincent's, the highly acclaimed Mandola-family fine dining Italian spots located on West Dallas. The prices are cheaper here, and the spices are tamer, but it beats the Olive Garden.

    The panini with Italian sausage is great It came with a salad that had pears and walnuts, that's a first for me. Both were delicious. I want to try some sweets I saw next time. The picture is taken from their website: http://www.pronto-2-go.com/

    This place is as casual as it gets. Which makes it affordable. Order at the counter and a server will bring out your dish. They also have curbside service. Awesome gelato!

    Always delicious and fragrant food in a cozy neighborhood atmosphere. The menu offers a variety of succulent entrees with rich sauces and refreshing salads. Enjoy a nice portion coupled a nice wine.

    The Rigatoni Rustica is killer here. Do it, do it.
