Nightlife in West Chester

Select Local Merchants

Over the course of nearly 40 years, the close-knit Ruffini family have operated five restaurants throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, and Pronto Bistro Italiano is the latest testament to their love of traditional Italian cuisine. Visitors won't find over-processed food full of preservatives and genetically modified additives, but handmade, homey feasts of spaghetti carbonara made with local farm-raised eggs, salads made with organic greens, and sandwiches stuffed with slow-roasted pork and homemade meatballs. Diners can pair morsels of veal saltimbocca tenderloin or earthy eggplant parmigiana with flavorful Italian wines, handcrafted cocktails, or a beer from a list that changes with the seasons. Families gather around cloth-covered tables for dinners of paninis and pasta, while in the low-lit, woodsy bar area, revelers shoot pool, snack on chicken wings from the late-night menu, and pitch a tent for the night.
