Pronto is an Italian restaurant located at the top end of bustling Bayview Terrace in Claremont. It was a bright sunny morning when we arrived for breakfast one weekend. The restaurant was barely open with only a few tables taken which were lucky for us. I’d read reviews where people have to queue up for seats! Maybe that was more for the lunch session.
We were greeted warmly by the waitstaff as we approached the counter and found the spot that we wanted quite easily – at the front of the restaurant looking out onto the street. Rays of sunshine were beaming through the windows onto our table, a great dose of vitamin D for our skin (bonus!). The interior of the restaurant is modern and had a homely atmosphere about it. It was nice.
The breakfast menu was quite short, with approximately 11 – 12 items on the list. The food on offered were quite simple, like the usual omelette, toast, eggs benedict etc. For breakfast we had:
- Iced Coffee and Orange Juice
- Eggs on Toast ($15) with extra mushrooms
- Eggs Florentine ($19)
I had the Eggs Florentine that morning which were poached eggs served with sauteed spinach and hollandaise sauce on Italian bread. The dish was average for me as the hollandaise sauce was too creamy and didn’t have much taste to it. My friend had the Scrambled Eggs on Toast and thought it was average as well. The dish was big though. I’d also noticed in the menu that they offer half serves of the dish for $11. That will probably come in handy for those with a smaller stomach although the price is only $4 less.
Service was excellent that morning with the same friendly waitstaff that greeted us at the start attending our table the whole way through, and did a marvellous job. The only drawback is the food, they were pricey and didn’t satisfy the tastebud. I might try the other restaurants around the area first before heading back there for breakfast the second time round.
