Award-winning TV star chef and author Giada De Laurentiis is set to open her second restaurant, Pronto by Giada, at Caesars Palace in early 2018, it was announced Wednesday, settling a longstanding rumor.
Following in the footsteps of the successful Giada across The Strip at The Cromwell, Pronto will offer guests De Laurentiis’ signature Italian fare with California influences in a fast, casual format.
“With Pronto by Giada being my second restaurant, I wanted to do something a little different, with a more casual approach than my first restaurant, Giada at The Cromwell,” said De Laurentiis during a news conference at Giada on Wednesday.
“This will be a great introduction to my food and brand, as it’s the lighter side of Italian with a fresh, California influence. It will be perfect for a fast bite, and then guests can go across the street for a finer-dining experience.”
“Caesars Palace prides itself on having the most impressive collection of celebrity chef restaurants. The addition of Giada De Laurentiis and Pronto by Giada brings our culinary empire to an even higher level of excellence,” said Caesars Palace Regional President Gary Selesner, also at Giada.
“Pronto will offer something for every guest, from those looking to grab a quick bite or an artisanal coffee to those wanting to enjoy the chic space while leisurely enjoying charcuterie and a glass of wine.”
Pronto will be located adjacent to Bacchanal Buffet and Mr. Chow in the former space of Payard Patisserie & Bistro and offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
