Wonderful wood fired pizza

One of my favorite restaurants! Choose your sauce (white, red or olive oil). Excellent pizza, salads, Italian sodas, wine and beer! Smells delicious before you walk in the door!

Hadn't been by in a while ( no real reason ) decided to meet a coworker for lunch... Had the pizza and shared a salad.. Still as good as when they first opened. Food tastes great and is always fresh.. Need to put this place back on as a regular stop!

We just moved here and will be regulars at Zeffiros! Shortly after we were seated, were presented with crusty, fresh-baked Ciabatta (made in-house) and infused olive oils. We enjoyed a house salad with the raspberry vinaigrette with local pecans on top, and the pizza reminded us of the coal-fired oven pizzas that we used to eat in New York -... More

Pizza is good, it is not my favorite but I have enjoyed it. The place is also nice and salads are good.

I have been here twice and the pizza was great both times. It is, by a long shot, the closest thing to genuine Italian pizza that I have had in New Mexico (would have been "the States", if it wasn't for an amazing pizza I had in New York...). The dough is beautiful, cooked perfectly in the wood fired oven... More

A widely different selection of wood fired pizzas (try the lemon, asparagus, and prosciutto). Haven't gotten around to trying the other menu items (besides the pizzas), but what I've seen and smelled coming from the kitchen has been impressive. Service can be iffy - sometimes great, sometimes not so great, depending on time of day I guess. Two side salads... More

Nothing to write home about. We won't go back. Less than average pizza. I'd rather order from a chain. Staff wasn't attentive either. And we sat outside in these really awkward plastic chairs. The table also tilted alot, BUT that doesn't matter if the food is amazing. And it wasn't.

The last thing Zeffiro's is? Not your average pizza joint! Located downtown with a modest location near NMSU, Ziffiro's serves the best Italian food in Las Cruces. The restaurant offers a wide menu, a clear commitment to top quality food and service, and a dining experience that is as sophisticated as any big city restaurant. The downtown location is dine-in...
