Overall 5food service ambience

New iteration of this restaurant makes it worth your visit. Simple dishes done very well including home-made pasta (you can really tell). Get the Montalchino wine - a bargain and so fine. We enjoyed the Zeppoles for dessert. The changes are a major step up.

I’ve been eating at Osteria Pronto regularly since it opened. The new OP Italian has literally left a bad taste in my mouth and I doubt I’ll ever be back. No free bread, the menu has changed, along with the flavors of the food. The prices have increase, but the food hasn’t. Very sad to see one of my favorite restaurants take a turn towards the wrong direction.

Disappointed in the new menu. The old menu was fantastic and we were looking forward to it. New menu is just so-so and very limited.
Service was good but not knowledgeable. Seemed to be many new employees that didn't know the menu well.
We had to slow the server down a bit as they tried to rush us.

The food was horrible. It was cold, over cooked, not as described on the menu. We were 5 people and we all said the same thing.
The hotel recommended this as a “high end Italian restaurant” their definition of high end is very different than ours. It was horrible.

I visited for dinner recently and had their Spicy Italian Sausage Rigatoni which was very good. Service was attentive and the atmosphere was nice. Only down side was that bread does not come with the dish--garlic bread must be purchased separately--not good.

Overpriced and altogether underwhelming. Three of us ordered a "restaurant favorite," the short rib gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce. The sauce had little flavor and the short rib was all fat. It was like eating an expensive but less impressive version of kid's mac & cheese. Our server was good, although the hostess, the actual service itself and overall vibe of the place was very much an "I don't care" attitude.

Friends had slow service at lunch the day before but commented that the food was tasty so we tried it for dinner. Very pleasant team but we were two of the only customers in the restaurant at the beginning of dinner shift and everything was slow after the initial drink order. We only had one course and it took a solid hour. Worse, both of our steaks were over cooked (barely a hint of pink is not medium rare!). Manager checked on us proactively and we gave the feedback but explained that we did have time to deal with starting over. Like our waiter, she was very pleasant. Waiter offered to comp our desserts but we weren’t hungry enough to try anything and we were out of time. In the end he comped one of the steaks. He did about the best he could given the situation but one has to think there are bigger issues at this restaurant give the pace at the start of a shift, and the pattern day over day of the same slow service.

Dinner: Underwhelming food (for the price), quite friendly, but very poor service. Sometimes one might have the experience of a great waiter with zero personality, this was the *opposite*.

I recommend instead, the sports bar at JW... great service, mixed drinks excellent.

Spent The Weeknd in Indy. It was too chilly to leave the hotel we opted for one of the restaurants at the JW. We were surprised at the quality and service from Osteria. They were very busy but the servers did a great job and were on top of things. The food was more northern Italy and typical itlatian. Food was great and we both enjoyed the sea bass and salads that we ordered. They have a great wine list with most from old world but some new world wines. Would definitely come back

My son and I had dinner there before an event and were very happy with our choice. We enjoyed the gulf shrimp as an appetizer, which was very tasty! My son got the spaghetti and I the chicken parmesan and they were both delicious! The service was great as well! The restaurant was pretty full and the noise level was not a problem as we were able to converse without problem.

Being that it was a game night and the restaurant could have staffed for the event, we were disappointed that we had to wait a ridiculous amount of time for one pizza. Not our first time to eat there, but the first we have been so frustrated .

We went to celebrate our anniversary, our first date was Osteris when it opened. Food was not as great as we remembered. Sea Bass was VERY fishy. I have worked in broad line distribution and know food quality. Husband spaghetti was over powering wish seasoning in the meatballs.

Osteria Pronto offers a nice alternative to most of the fare near the Indiana Convention Center: upscale-ish Italian with very good vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, including GF pasta. We had salmon and chicken parm, both of which were very good, with surprisingly ample portions. Reasonable prices, locally sourced, busy but reasonable service, pleasant and satisfying meal.

Would like to recommend that the chef warms the plates and bowls before serving the food. Pasta served in a cold bowl cools quickly and is not as pleasant to eat. Was very noisy in restaurant even with only 2 people trying to converse.
