This restaurant is one of thee Westside’s best kept secrets. The food is decadent without being overly pricey and the waitstaff is attentive and polite. We began our meal with the fried brie appetizer. Wow... I had the Risotto special last night which included mussels and shrimp. My boyfriend had the Braised Pork Cheeks and we concluded dining experience with a delicious lemony heaven!

Great happy hour. Delightful dishes and the best italian I have had so far in Abq. They also opened a salami and cheese shop next door. All the things I miss...

Good ambiance and a full bar.

Great food and the service was outstanding. Would definitely go there again i had the calamari app and the pork chop special both we’re cooked to perfection I would be willing to say it was the best pork chop I have ever had I normally do not get pork chops when dinning out but the waiter recommended it and I am glad he did. I hope I get his name correct I think it was dan and he was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu.

I’ve heard a lot about this restaurant from friends and family who have been and really enjoyed it. There are quite a few really interesting dishes on the menu. For some odd reason I kept looking at the pizza selections and decided on to try that out. I normally wouldn’t have ordered something like that, but the pizza combinations where very interesting. When the pizza came it was absolutely delicious!!! I can’t remember what the pizza was called, but it had alfredo sauce and pepperoni. The waiter was very attentive. I can’t wait to go back to enjoy one of their specialty dishes.

Best place in ABQ. Nuff said. Great menu. Connected staff. Fresh ingredients. This place would be 5 stars in any major city.

We came in because we were introduced to M’Tucci’s Kitchina at a Yelp Elite event awhile back. We were not disappointed! Great atmosphere, friendly, almost overly attentive staff (at the bar no less) and excellent food. This was on a Friday night at 6:30. We were tod it would be a 25 minute wait, but some seats at the bar opened up and we sat down right away. My wife had the Risotto special which was the Creamy Saffron Seafood Risotto with shrimp, mussels and fish. She said this would be her new go to if it were offered regularly. I had the Chicken Milanese, the closest I could get to chicken parmesan. It was fantastic! Lightly breaded served over a mildly spicy marinara and angel hair pasta. They were serving local beer from La Cumbre on tap. Great experience for a Friday night.

Phenomenal! Probably one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. I’m a total foodie, I’m raising my kids to be foodies. We didn’t realize it wasn’t really a family restaurant, but they were more then accommodating to my children. We had muscles, bread, I had the roasted chicken, my husband had the hanger steak, my boys had truffle fries, and butter noodles, and a sausage and pepperoni pizza. My kids raved about the truffle fries, we tried them and let me say, probably the best fries ever. My 5 year old doesn’t even like fries, and that kid gobbled them up. My 8 year old thought the muscles were ok, but let me say this: The Hanger steak was amazing, my chicken was fantastic, the garlic mashed potatoes amazing, and my 8 year old age all my asparagus but he said it was really good. The pizza, probably some of the best I have ever tasted. We will be coming back. I hope that we have the same experience because I really want to try everything. I really regretted not getting the risotto, only because I love risotto and everything else we had was amazing, I’m sure the risotto was something to try. We will be back! If the owner or manager or anybody from the restaurant reads this please know that tonight 12/15/14, your team was phenomenal! Kudos!
