Exciting new Italian opens in Leeds following £350,000 investment

An exciting new Italian restaurant has opened in Leeds.

Horsforth has seen a new Pranzo launch in Town Street. The Horsforth venue joins their established restaurants in Ilkley and Harrogate. It has taken three months and a £350,000 investment to turn the former bank building into an authentic Italian dining space.

Chef-owner Marco Greco is delighted to be opening in Horsforth. He said: “I’ve wanted to open a restaurant in Horsforth for a while. It is a fantastic town, everyone has been so friendly while we’ve been completing the renovation work.”

The Pranzo opening will see 35 people employed from the local area. Discussing what customers can expect, Marco added: “I started cooking in my childhood with my nonna (grandmother) at our family home in the Calabria region of Italy. Hopefully, Nonna would be proud of how many people are enjoying her recipes now.”

The main menu features Marco’s favourite elements of his nonna’s traditional recipes. Marco states everything is made in-house with their pasta being made fresh daily as well as their breads, sauces and desserts. You can find out more by visiting the Pranzo website.
