Executive Chef Claudio Sandri.
Bill Specce opened Pronto Cafe in August in partnership with longtime family friend Leone Padula, owner of Fort Lauderdale's Gran Forno bakery and Gran Forno Pronto. It stands as a second location, of sorts, to Gran Forno Pronto, the original café located on Las Olas Boulevard. With a larger kitchen and a pizza oven, Specce said his goal is to offer a place for locals to eat, drink, and relax.
