Food and wine were excellent. Was there for a business dinner and was a great set up for us. Noise was minimal, selection was varied and everyone enjoyed their choices. Waitress was attentive and prices were reasonable for what we got. Good experience all around.

Sad, just sad. We want Ranallo's to be so good, but the disappointment is astounding. From the microwaved steak to the truck-stop like atmosphere of the wait staff. This place needs a complete overhaul, could be a great spot for a restaurant, right now it is just a high priced beer joint with vending machine food.

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.
