Visited Ranallo's this past weekend to celebrate our anniversary and walked out after our meal very disappointed. Arrived early in the evening and were one of the few tables seated yet it took awhile to receive our drinks. My wife and I both ordered the same entree, steak oscar. I ordered the 8oz - medium well and my wife the... More

Several years have passed since my last visit and I found the experience to be just as good. A gem in a small town, Ranallo's is a nice surprise. One negative was the service was slow on the weekday evening I was here. Waitress though was friendly and personable.

Renallo's is the best place to go for fine dining in Ankeny. If you have something to celebrate, this place has the ambiance. The menu is complex and the food is excellent. Service is always attentive and timely.

What a treasure. So glad my friend and I found this place. From our wine selections to the appetizers to the entrees. Everything was delicious. Lovely atmosphere. And our server, Ashley (with the short hair), was attentive and cheerful. We will definitely return soon & will recommend to friends & family.

Our adult night out kind of place, dress up, dress down, and enjoy. We enjoy the atmosphere. Very relaxing dining experience. From top to bottom of the menu, you have a full range of selections that will challenge your taste buds. Pete and his staff welcome you with a smile. It is nice to see chef Pete come out and... More

It's a decent Italian restaurant that allows a break from the mass produced chains. Inside is nice - dim and quiet. Service was great. Slightly overpriced for what it really is. Better places in des Moines

We called for reservations and received a confirmation call. The restaurant was full. The menu is simple but the food was quite good. The calamari was tender and tasty. The Ahi tuna was tasty. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

Went for dinner with a group of friends. Food was average. When we tried to order a second round of drinks, we were told that the bar was closed. While we were finishing our wine and food (never even offered dessert), we were pushed from the table at about by a waitress who told us that we needed to leave... More

Plenty of empty tables; still waited 30 minutes to be seated. The hostess seemed not to know what was going on with the (empty) tables. We were seated in an empty corner and the waitress forgot about us - we didn't even get our drinks for 20 minutes, and only after we flagged down the hostess to complain (waitress apologized... More
