Home made food is always a pleasure to your pallet. This family owned restaurant remains me of home. It’s a small but cozy place. No alcohol is served here, hence family owned. Kinda spendy but with it. Support local🍽

I can't believe I've never tried this Italian before. Part of it is because I usually go to another favorite Italian restaurant of mine. The other is, is because it sits in a strip mall and you could miss it if you weren't looking for...More

I'm not sure if I'm more curious as to why we haven't eaten here in the 40 years it has been open or why no one has told me about it ever. We had a late lunch here and it was really quite good. It...More

Got to admit it! I finally found the worse Italian food in Albuquerque! Water - logged pasta. Caned sauce. No cream sauce. Olive Garden pricing without the benefits. Terrible salad and soup. Go if you like throwing your money away!

We went here this evening on a recommendation. It was nothing like I thought it would be. It is ok if you are a college student or someone on a budget. The salad dressing was the highlight of the meal. We ordered the lasagna and...More
