Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Delivering fresh, authentic Tuscan-style entrees, the casual Italian chain features pizza and pastas as well as monthly special wine dinners.
Definitely Not the Most Romantic – This is not the most romantic restaurant in Albuquerque. I don't know where they (meaning City Search) got their results but if you are looking for a special occasion place this is not it. Albuquerque has much better locally owned places.
LOOK!! – Don't just look at the negative reviews on this page! Take my word for it..this place is great! I love the food there! Try the Mediterranean Chicken Salad or the Green Chile Chicken Lasagne or the Penne Gorgonzola. Also there are other locations in West Texas and I hear Arizona is coming soon!! Already there is 3 other locations in New Mexico. Check out the location in Los Lunas, Farmington, or Las Cruces. I love this food! I just hope everyone will try it for themselves!
Great Place to take your date to – Great Service, Excellent Food, Great place to take your date to. highly recommend. You won't be disappointed
Blah – Decent, not worth the money. Very chain like and uneventful.
You must be kidding! – Albuquerque may not be a culinary mecca but it still has loads of restaurants that outperform this bland chef boyardeeesque version of Italian food. Outdoor dining? If you enjoy sitting outside enjoying the view of a parking lot framed by one by the busiest stripmall lined streets in this dirty dusty city which happens to lie on the edge of natural splendor then this is your place. I can think of many more picturesque locations even in this dust bowl!
veal is the deal – try the veal parm delicious and prepared when ordered, this dish must also pass the standard of the manger on duty, i waited about 45 minutes for my veal, but found out manager sent it back, not up to standards, rec'd free dessert. 2 forks up.
No Way! – Chain restaurant with just "OK" food. Servive standards are average-just not a romantic, special occasion type place
Johnny Ca-who? – Nothing against Johnny Carino't. I think it is a good chain. But there is no way it can top any list in Albuquerque with the abundance of great resaurants that we have.
save your money and go somewhere else! – How can you say this place is romantic - good grief - if you want romance on a budget - I guess it fits. If you want romance save your money and go elsewhere!!
