Literally, "price" ... (an unusually candid name for a restaurant!); HOWEVER --


Explanation:
-- the intended reference is probably to one of the idiomatic meanings of the word: "An item of great value..."

Buon appetito! -- HC

Prezzo


Explanation:
are you sure that there is not something missing?
for example a preposition, or an adjective before the noun.
It might be "A Prezzo", that is to say cheap, not expensive, or "Buon Prezzo",that is affordable.
Hope this helps

Proper or common noun


Explanation:
If it is a proper name, a family name, you should leave it unchanged, as Juvefan says. If it is a noun then it is "prezzo", but somehow I don't think they would call a restaurant by a name that suggests "pricy" as Heathcliffe says.
