The Perfect independent Italian. I have to confess that my wife made the booking as a surprise and my initial thought was “yet another Italian in Ilkley” but I was proven way wrong. The food offering was more inline with the dishes eaten in a...recent trip to Rome and every bit as good. From the homemade ragu to the seafood pasta, each dish was fantastic. So don’t be as cynical as I first was and book a table👌.More

Popped in with my son thinking they did pizza. They don't as a regular dish, they apparently have had pizza nights in the past. Anyway we hungrily chose something else. The smell from kitchen was intoxicating, and when food came it didn't disappoint. Simply delicious....Although initially upset at the lack of pizza my son declared it the bestest food he had ever had😄 so good we immediately booked for fathers Day. Yummy 😋More

Pranzo is hands down my favourite Italian. We visit regularly so can reccomen based on the consistency in the quality of service and food. Beautifully cosy setting and the staff are so welcoming and accommodating to dietary requirements. Almost everything on the menu is available...GF. My go to dishes are the burrata followed by tomato and mascarpone pasta and my partner loves the creamy mushroom & pancetta pasta … love love love. Great coffees too ☕️!More

I dined at Pranzo last night with my friend - it was my first visit though I had been meaning to come for ages as I'd heard excellent things. We sat in the window so we had a nice view and ordered After Eight espresso...martini and Limoncello spritz. Both the cocktails were excellently made and tasted great. We decided to get starters so my friend had the mussels and I had the burrata with beetroot and walnut. Both dishes were incredible - the burrata was so fresh and light, perfect as a starter, and the candied beetroot added a really nice sweetness that complemented the other ingredients well. For mains, we had the seafood bigoli and lobster ravioli. The waitress explained to us earlier that the kitchen only had enough mussels for one of the dishes but they would add extra seafood to my main - absolutely fine! The seafood came with extra prawns (thank you) and they even brought out a small bowl of the mussels they had left, which was so kind! The meal was perfect. The seasoning was on point, the seafood beautifully cooked. Honestly, it was incredible and Pranzo has easily become my new favourite Italian in Ilkley. The service was perfect. The waitresses were attentive and super fun to chat to. My friend and I both commented how impressed we were at how efficiently they ran front of house, it was such a pleasant atmosphere and the service was seamless. I didn't catch the ladies' names but one was wearing green nail polish and the other wore little hoop earrings. Please, Pranzo, let them know how wonderful they were, and the kitchen team for such a lovely evening. The loos were spotless and had nice soap. The decor in general was modern and I like the plants in the window. We had dessert too, even though we were stuffed, because we wanted to try everything. My friend asked to have hers boxed up, which the staff did, no problem. I think due to a totally unnecessary review on here, the wait staff now make it very clear that there is an optional service charge, but we were more than happy to pay it and in fact having the service charge already added on to the bill was easier for us. Thank you, Pranzo! We will be back! (And I won't be weird next time I promise 😂)More

Me and my husband visited Pranzo last week as part of our trip up from Sussex, we thought it so fantastic that we had to come again for our last night! I had the beetroot burrata for my starter and my husband had steamed mussels,...for mains I had the lobster ravioli and my husband had the lasagne, such good quality food would highly recommend. We had two lovely young waitresses both extremely friendly and welcoming, made our experience very enjoyable. Will definitely be visiting again on our next trip!More

We stayed over near Ilkley on our trip to the Lake District. We tried to book in four different restaurants in Ilkley for an evening meal but none had any vacancies. So we looked slightly further afield and found Pranzo in Ben Rhyding. We were...so glad the others were full because Pranzo proved to be outstanding. It was like eating in Italy even if the charming waitresses were Yorkshire lasses. The ambiance was good and the food fantastic.More
