    Seating is close to other tables so it is difficult to have a romantic dinner and intimate conversation.

    I guess I was expecting better. The menu is great so I got excited! The room was loud and echoed so it was difficult to enjoy conversation. They should hang tapastry up to soak up some of the noise. The service was iffy. The young man serving water argued with me about the bottled water. I wanted regular water and he brought sparkling. I told him and he said it wadn’t, though “sparkling” was literally printed on the bottle. (I will concede, though, if there was a miscommunication. It was so loud, hearing was difficult.) His attitude carried on throughout the evening, slamming a glass of water for one of our party down on the table and walking off to without a word. (I never did get the water I wanted.) I ordered salmon and had to send it back to cook more as it was underdone. I waited 10 minutes for my meal while the rest of my party ate. Once I got the meal prepared the way I wanted, it was very good. We asked one of the servers for bread with our meal. He forgot. Another one of our servers did bring it after we asked again. We were looking forward to a nice, enjoyable meal with friends, but mostly it was just chaotic.

    The service was wonderful. The waitress and servers were friendly and polite. The food is always so good, I eat too much. My friend said her ravioli was just a touch too salty. There’s no reason to go to another Italian restaurant in Santa Fe, in my humble opinion. I take out of town guests there. It’s always a hit. Love the decor and artwork.

    We very much enjoy dining at Pranzo - this was our fourth visit and we will be back many more times. All of the pasta dishes are excellent, as are the pizzas. The burrata and pear starter is a special gem - delicious! Also enjoy the varied and moderately priced Italian wine selection.

    Floor was so bad it was like a herd of elephants coming through whenever waitstaff walked through. Waitress initially had attitude; knocked it off when it became apparent we wouldn’t take it. Food mediocre. Very loud room due to poor acoustics. Will not go back— there are way too many really excellent restaurants in Santa Fe; this is not one of them!

    Finally! Italian cuisine that excites, delights and satisfies. Tasty, beautifully presented, generous portions, served hot and without excessive delay by professional and courteous servers. Homemade pasta, delicious warm bread with a light but crunchy brown crust, rich sauce and the right amount of it. We began by splitting a salad that had plenty of life-force in its fresh ingredients, no skimping, variety of textures, colors and flavors. Everything was so good, we didn't need dessert but had the feeling we'd be missing out on something exceptional if we didn't order. That flan was creamy, had a crackly thin layer of torched crystalized sugar on top, and sealed the experience of being treated with food made with love. I think I've made my point. This wasn't my first trip and there will be many more to Santa Fe's new Pranzo location (happily a couple of blocks from the vacation rental I own in the charming McKenzie Neighborhood). I'll be back for the eggplant parmesan, too.

    We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation and before they were closing only to find out they decided to close an hour early. They still had 20 minutes to serve us before closing but they just apologized and sent us in our way. No recommendations… nothing but an oh well. I wouldn’t return even if I had the time because of they took the reservation and had 20 minutes before closing to at least allow us an appetizer but their customer service skills were lacking. Go across the street to Lena’s pizzeria. We did and you won’t be disappointed. Delicious & friendly service!

    Meatballs, aracini and caesar salad excellent. We ordered gluten free pasta and was served pasta with gluten. Kitchen or server issue? Fortunately we asked twice and the dish was replaced. GF Pizza crust was crispy and good.

    Excellent food and wine. We all had pasta dishes. The server was very nice and let us sample wine before selection. However, timing of meal was poor. They offered to bring us bread which they initially forgot. The salad came out with the pasta (and still no bread). We ordered a 2nd glass of wine but it wasn’t brought out until we had finished the meal. Then they brought us bread. By that time I didn’t want the extra calories but I do prefer to drink my wine with food. So the service honestly ruined what could have been a wonderful meal if staggered appropriately.

    We had a party of 7; made reservations and were seated exactly at time we arrived. Food is excellent, with good variety. Good service. It was noisy, so hard at times to have good conversation or hear staff. And, was a little difficult finding a place to park. But, other than that, is great.

    We've been to Pranzo several times and have found the food always good and well priced. Service has always been attentive. A couple of areas need improvement. One when silver is removed from one course, it should be replaced for the next. Two, food servers should know who gets what. The restaurant doesn't get carried away on bottle wine prices.

    Lovely evening, wonderful wait staff. The only very large problem was the noise level. We had to shout to hear one another which made the noise level in the room even worse. Some thing to baffle the sound would be terrific.

    Went on a busy Friday night and the wait staff was busy but took time to be friendly and funny with us. The dinning room we were in had hard plaster walls and was very loud at times. All of the food was good and I would defiantly eat here again.
