pronto meaning

Pronto is an adverb meaning promptly or quickly. If someone asks you to do something pronto, they want it done now.

Sometimes parents, bosses, and teachers need you to do something fast: one word that carries this meaning is pronto, which comes from Italian and originally applied to playing music quickly. If your dad says, “Take out the trash pronto!” he wants you to take it out now. If your boss asks you to finish a project pronto, she wants you to finish it right away. Pronto means about the same as ASAP, which stands for “as soon as possible.”
