After hearing that Chef Lemon, the original chef at Pranzo, was back, I decided it was time to try the restaurant again. It had fallen into major disrepair after he had left and I was hoping for a resurrection...alas, not to be on this visit. We decided to go early, to beat the crowds. The dining room was half-empty with mostly senior citizens. The overall interior has not been updated since the restaurant opened 25 years ago. The service was quite good. We were there early enough to take advantage of the price fixe menu and there were several drink specials available also. I had a flight of "continental" reds, 3 oz. each, for $5! I had wanted to try the buratta appetizer with pears, but it was "not available" and had to settle for the buratta caprese. We each had the half order of different pastas (very filling, I cannot imagine eating a full order). The sauces were rich and everybody was pleased, if not blown away with the flavor. The bread and table oils were very good. For dessert we were informed that several of the ice cream flavors were "not available" but settled for the espresso and amaretto flavors which were very good. Overall, the experience was "good". Maybe they are still working out some kinks. With tax and tip, for 3, the price was $75.
