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.

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.

So yeah. Come here for the pizza. Can't go wrong with any, especially the asparagus and lemon (I know right)? My favorite thing by far here though is the bread that they give you when you sit down. Same wood fired oven, crusty but chewy inside. They also give you fresh grated garlic and olive oil to dip in. If... More

A quiet restaurant with parking and good pizza, what else do you want?! Well the pizza is cooked in a wood oven and teh ingredients are fresh. To start they bring you bread and garlic paste and you use the (tasty) olive oil to dip, the bread is made on site. The pizza (the Zeffiro) was very tasty indeed with... More

The pizza has fantastic crust. I wish the fennel sausage was a bit different, but it is still tasty.

My friend and I tried this place because we wanted to try someplace new in Las Cruces and didn't want to eat at the same old chain restaurants. After some brief confusion as to its location, (there are two locations, but one is a drive-thru only,) we found it on North Water Street, about a block from the city courthouse.... More

Pizza is brick-oven baked and is excellent.. Great menu choices. Probably best to leave toddlers behind
