Pranzo Italian Grill
Located in the Sanbusco Market Center on the Western edge of the Historic District, Pranzo has been a local favorite since 1988. We received the Wine Spectator 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011, 2012 and 2013 Awards of Excellence. Broadway vocalists and pianists are featured in the Geist Cabaret Fridays and Saturdays. From Pizza Margherita to Linguine Carbonara, to Prime Colorado Ribeye Steak, Pranzo boasts Santa Fe's favorite Italian American cuisine, most knowledgeable waitstaff, New Mexico's deepest list of great Italian wines and 20 wines by the glass served Normale (6.3 oz.) and Gigante (9 oz.). Chef Steven Lemon greets multiple Northern New Mexico farmers in his kitchen each week to buy the finest and freshest produce available.
We go here routinely. The staff is friendly, great service, we are always assured our favorite booth, the food is consistently good and it is always a very laid back, simple and positive atmosphere.
It is not fancy, nor expensive, but reliable and pleasant. Several of the staff have been there for years, which is always nice as they remember names and know what we like prior to ordering.
We ate at Pranzos this year for Father's Day and it was the worst meal I've ever had. My husband, mother and her friend ordered the fillet, I had the lasagna and my kids had the macaroni. The fillets were burnt and sooo dry, my lasagna noodles were not fully cooked and even the parts that were-I was not impressed. The Mac and Cheese was so disgusting that my kids- who happen to love the stuff didn't even touch them. We would've been better off going to Olive Garden...Oh, and not to mention the waitress, if I find my ticket I'll post her name as a warning. She was SO rude! After everything, she had the nerve to give herself a 20% tip-Couldn't believe it!!!
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service at this prime location restaurant. The panini was great (I am not a real panini fan, but I think I will order that again), the salad was excellent and the service reminded me of a Southwestern version of an east coast Italian restaurant, without the uptightness. The atmosphere was relaxed, and aesthetically, easy on the eyes. An enjoyable experience altogether.
After trying a couple of recommended southwestern restaurants and being totally disappointed, we came across this gem. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, fairly broad menu. You would not mistake it for a five star restaurant, but the quality was great for the cost. Portions were fairly large, so plan accordingly, unless you can take a doggie bag with you.
A gambling den once occupied the space where the Palace restaurant now stands, and the owners have taken great pains
to maintain its Old West look and feel. The menu features gourmet Italian dishes like Saltinbocca al Romana (sauteed ...
