We always make reservations at Pranzo’s for our family over the Christmas holiday. The ambience is cozy, staff is attentive and the food is excellent. We love the excellent selection of wine and spirits.

Great seasonally inspired menu with local ingredients... Italian as it should be. Fresca Fresca! Celebrated my husband's birthday here with our 17 month old daughter. Staff was friendly, very gracious to our family and little one. Mushroom appetizer and burrata were very special with local/seasonal ingredients, and we enjoyed our more traditional entrees (meatballs and chicken Parmesan) as well. We will definitely be back!

Pranzo's food and service are great--a wide-ranging menu and excellent wine list. The decor could use some updating, though--some paint here and there would make a world of difference.

Great Crispy Zucchini Fingers. They were crispy on the outside but not mushy on the inside.
Very good Cavatelli. I like them a little chewy and saved with great Italian sausage.
We will Return

A wonderful and good tasting Italian restaurant without the white tablecloth. Neighborhood (Santa Fe) vibe. Moderately priced.

We chanced on Pranzo while shopping at REI next door, and thought it a great discovery, but clearly this excellent Italian place is no secret. The menu is varied, we easily found something delicious for everyone, from ravioli to grilled ribeye to a kid's hamburger, and a Nicoise salad with perfectly seared tuna. A bottle of Super Tuscan complemented the food and made for a memorable evening, the first of many, I hope, at Pranzo.

The lights over our table and in the restaurant were flickering the whole evening, which when reading a menu was very annoying...An old building we were told. Server took our orders, but came back as they had run out of salmon, so substituted shrimp, which was alright, but not grilled, just sauted with no flavor. Asked for a bottle of wine, and they had to chill it, so gave us a glass of the typed we wanted till the bottle chilled, but then could not have two bottles of wine on the table of four of us, we were told because of Santa Fe regulations. When I asked for a Baileys on the Rocks after dinner was told I could not have it because I had already had a martini and dessert instead.........will not be recommending to friends going to Santa Fe.

Pasta dishes are very good, and a half order is available. Not the usual chain Italian menu, much more creative.

Once a year we visit a couple of special places in Santa Fe and this is one of them.

It’s a 6 hour drive but worth every visit. Friendly staff and good food.

Very good Italian food. Nice location and ambiance. Waiter was new and not as attentive as I'd like. One strange thing was that we ordered drinks to start and wine with dinner. However, the drinks were slow in coming and we hadn't finished them before dinner arrived. But they wouldn't bring the wine until our drinks were finished. Something about not having two drink glasses per person on the table at the same time. My wife had to chug her drink so we could get our wine.

The staff at Pranzo couldnt have been more professional ! 5 star service and food from beginning to end! They truly made our birthday get together with friends one we will never forget and one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! We eagerly look forward to returning here next time we are in Santa Fe.
