Gran Forno Pronto

704 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-533-6276

Location 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.
