Description: Pranzo Cuisine & Cocktails is tucked away under the mossy draped live oaks, just off Frederica Road. The Shops at Sea Island are just around the corner, so convenient for browsing after enjoying a uniquely delicious meal with us. Come for lunch or dinner any day of the week. Dine inside our out because we're blessed with great weather here. Then on Sundays we feature an all day brunch menu along with our regular menu. Let our bartenders serve you up a Bond inspired martini, the Golden Gun or enjoy our great happy hour Monday thru Friday 4-7. Sundays we feature a fantastic Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar.

Excellent 'california' style menu in a beautiful setting. Also has an excellent bar with plenty of craft style beer to choose from. Great lunch location!

“Our favorite neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We love Pranzo's healthy choices and variety. They offer seafood, burgers (great turkey burgers), chicken, Mexican dishes, Italian dishes (red sauce is a bit sweet) and more.
Also, prices are reasonable and you can get a descent bottle of wine for $10.
We go there regularly

“Worth the search for this treasure well hidden behind the new bank....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Great service thanks to Stacey. An eclectic menu with variations from Wild Georgia shrimp and crab dishes to Italian, Mexican, and local Gullah tradition brilliantly prepared and appetizingly served. The Gullah Shrimp salad is nothing short of delicious served with a very tangy green dressing....wish I knew the recipe. Service is attentive, courteous, and swift. Without doubt, THE most comfortable bar I have ever sat at (and I've sat at a lot) with a people fitting bevel, stools that are nicely cushioned both bottom and back, and precisely the correct height to match the bar and that's pretty amazing! It's a full service bar, too, beer, wine, and spirits! The dessert menu looked fantastic but I will defer to ordering the 'double fudge creme bru' for my next visit. Dining area and bar ambiance beyond what might be expected from the exterior's rather plain mini-strip mall appearance. The restroom was spotless. Sign says that they have 'Happy Hour' from 4-7 pm weekdays only, if I remember correctly. This is a 'must do' for lunch or dinner if you're visiting the Golden Isles of Southeast Georgia. You will not be disappointed. Modestly priced. Adults, seniors, and families with children that are 'tweens to teens' and older will enjoy dining here.

“Great atmosphere with unique local cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Pranzo was a great find and one that will continue to climb as a top spot on St. Simons and Sea Island, GA. The food was great and the atmosphere was even better. Pranzo trumps the tourist traps!

“Great Casual Place To Eat And Drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

This is a great place with an extensive menu to fit almost any taste--except those who love fried foods. It's healthy. It's fresh. It is owned and run by a person who understands food.

Dress up. Dress down. It does not matter. This is truly an Island Gem.
