"Il Pranzo" means "The Lunch" in Italian, and what a wonderful lunch it was, too. The service was as good as the food. The waitstaff were friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended.

IL Pranzo in Moss Vale is now OPEN on SUNDAYS from 8:00am - 2:00 pm. A hidden gem not to be missed. The coffee here is outstandingly good and consistently so. We discovered IL Pranzo five years ago upon moving to the Highlands. Been coming...here ever since.Sarah has always ensured a high standard of hygiene. With COVID-19 about we feel very safe here. Meals are excellent ( taste, price , presentation)Thiscafé has not opened on a Sunday for over twenty years 🤞. Will be here irregardless. A great find in Moss Vale!More

Convenient location away from the busy and noisy main road. Fastidious cleanliness. Recommend the roast vegetable sandwich on sourdough. My husband enjoyed a very generous bacon side dish with his sandwich. Reasonable pricing and a broad menu.

There were six of us today visiting the Southern Highlands. We were extremely lucky to stumble upon this delightful venue for our lunch today. The food was excellent and the coffees were of a high standard. However all of this was surpassed by the excellent...service and the outgoing personality of the owner and staff delightful lunch thoroughly enjoyed by all of us.More

We have just returned from a trip around NSW, Qld, NT and SA and we are so pleased to find that nothing has changed at IL PRANZO, Moss Vale. Still the best ever coffee, delicious food, excellent and caring service. You feel like you are...home!More

Had a coffee here when I was passing through as there seemed to be a few people outside which suggests god place Coffee was $4.50 but I was hit with a 30c ie 6+% surcharge for using a card under $10. Really disappointing as every...other coffee shop can handle a phone tap without a surcharge Coffee was ok but the surcharge left a bad tasteMore

Stopped off here on a drive back to Sydney and happened upon it. From the street it's not obvious - tucked away in a mall. In short - excellent coffee, friendly service, excellent food. Don't need anything else, really! We also asked them to grind...some of their coffee beans for us to take home - and it makes excellent coffee at home, too.More

Hi Trevor, Il Pranzo is a great little cafe in Bowral and doesn't offer accommodation. My best advice is to try the coast. Hope that helps. Regards, David R
