Osteria Pronto

Indianapolis
$$$$

Osteria Pronto opened with the JW Marriott for the Super Bowl in 2011 and remains a fan favorite. While the name means “tavern ready,” the Italian flair felt at Osteria Pronto is much more modern and focused on process, like a trendy Milan eatery. The gnocchi is hand-rolled by sous chef Angelo every day, while the Bolognese with fresh basil and shaved ricotta is simple but perfect. But careful of that chic scarf or silk tie, and get your napkin ready, because the food is estremamente buono.
