We came here two years ago and the service and food is still excellent. The restaurant is very clean and you are made really welcome. We go at least once a week while we are here.

Had lunch at El Pranzo & it was so good. They certainly give you lots to eat & everything was very fresh. I would recommend this to everyone. Lovely outside patio so you can enjoy the fresh air & flowers.

Ate lunch here with friends and will return often. Food was good, Try the shrimp burger. But skip the fries as they were thin, oily and not very tasty. Service was prompt and friendly. Ask for an "inside" table as the traffic noise from the highway can be bothersome.

Good food, and a great place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Their crepes are wonderful as is their wine by the glass. (Grown-up glasses, which are rather rare here in MX). Good service. An ex-pat hang-out of sorts.

We had a great lunch here. The sandwich was one of the best I have ever had! Nice outdoor setting, too.

The service was terrible, and the waiter had to be reminded several times of what we had ordered, and forgot to order one entree from the kitchen. We ordered drinks, salad and entree. However, the menu is sparse and did not indicate that the entree came with a side salad, so we ended up with two salads. One of our... More

I have never had a cold un-grilled panini before?? Guess there is a first time for everything. They should change the name and not call it a panini. The fries were limp and greasy and not tasty as all. Great location and nice atmosphere. Just don't order the panini.

In a lovely setting in beautiful La Floresta, Pranzo offers great service, and positively the best lasagne I have ever eaten other than my own, and even that is debatable. Shhhh:-) Upon seeing someone else order the lasagne, it was love at first sight, followed by love at first bite. WOW! The portions are huge, and besides being great value... More

The food and service are awesome... salads are very special... go well with the Cerveza... or wines available. Lunch is dinner in Mexico... Pranzo can make it either for you.
