About Us

Since 1974 we have shown a great passion for serving the community – so much so that we’ve built five restaurants over nearly four decades:

  • Thorndale Piazza Deli 1974-1990 – Thorndale, PA
  • Café Gap 1987-1990 – Gap, PA
  • Ruffini’s Restaurant 1989-2012 – Thorndale, PA
  • Pronto – Fresh. Italian. Fast 2012-2015 – Exton, PA
  • Pronto Bistro Italiano 2013-Present – Thorndale, PA

An important tradition of our close-knit, Italian family is gathering around fresh, delicious food and although the restaurant names and locations have changed over the years, our core values have been the same since 1974 – fresh, quality food, exceptional customer service, and a friendly atmosphere.

Our authentic recipes, direct from Italy, are made with only the freshest ingredients, and we strive to use foods that are free of chemical and genetically modified additives, so you can be confident you’re enjoying only the best. Don’t forget about our hand crafted cocktails, extensive wine list and seasonal beer selections to compliment your meal or serve as a great way to unwind.

We welcome you to Pronto Bistro and invite you to enjoy the best of Italy.
