We arrived in Santa Fe after dark and we were looking for a nearby restaurant for a quick meal, not expecting much. Looking at the recommendation list provided by our inn, we selected Pranzo Italian Grill. On the way into the restaurant, we overheard two departing diners talking about the Cioppino dish. I have not heard of it before but... More

We went there for dinner, my husband and I both got food poisoned and spent it at the hospital. Avoid at all costs!

If you have kids, no problem in this restaurant. Tablecloths are of paper and crayons are provided, so all the family can join in! Very helpful and friendly staff and a nice, laid-back atmosphere. Food is good and reasonably priced (for Santa Fe).

We used to frequent Pranzo and loved it. Now it is over priced. The food is certainly not what it used to be. Very small cocktails that we sent back for a double and a bigger glass. Limp lackluster $10-$12 salads. $30 fish special drowning in an unmentioned cream sauce. Pasta was overwrought with a garlicky cream sauce. It used... More

This is a lovely restaurant with good food, nice prices and on the weekend ask to eat upstairs where they have a piano player. A very nice place to eat. Good food, nice atmosphere and good value for SF.

We wanted to go to the Indian restaurant around the corner, but it was not open. We "settled" for Pranzo. I had the most delicious pasta and a basil margarita and my husband was very pleased with his meal too.

Having grown up in Santa Fe, Pranzo has always been the location for our special family meals. Being Italian, we appreciate the authenticity of the food, quality of service and great value. During our most recent dinner, we were very impressed with our entire dining experience.
