I was here for work and heard about this place from a friend. I knew to manage my expectations since I am used to quite a different culinary experience and I always review with this in mind. The desserts were surprisingly good. I had the pizza for dinner and it is worth referring. This is a quaint place and it... More

Good service and great italian food. Excellent dessert. Older building with only wine and beer options! But overall good atmosphere. Server was great. Try the wood fired pizza. All the dishes were good that we ordered. Cant go wrong with this place for good italian food.

I'd heard the entrees and desserts were great but was most wowed by the soups. The Lemon Artichoke and White Bean with chicken and bacon both sounded too good to miss and we were both glad for those choices. As soon as we took out first tastes, we asked our great server Dustin what the soup rotation was and about... More

We love this restaurant, but mainly get a small pizza and divide a Half Italian Chef salad, because the entrees are about $16 each and up, which is beyond our regular budget for dinner. It is in an older house. It actually has 3 levels. The regular entrance is up a flight of stairs and there is dining on that... More

On a 5 day vacation in Las Cruces my family wanted to try something different for dinner. I found this place and as we pulled up, we thought we may have under dressed. It didn't matter. The staff was very gracious and easy to talk with. The traditional spaghetti was excellent. We also had two chicken dishes, both fabulous. The... More

I have lived in Las Cruces for 7 years and never been here until tonight. The food was flavorful and portions large. The wait staff were helpful, but disappointingly they were out of the apricot stuffed pork chop. The Italian wedding soup and spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs was very good. There is a very excellent selection of desserts... More

I avoided this restaurant after moving to Cruces because I thought the Si in the name referred to a Mexican infusion. I was mistaken! It is an abbreviation for Sweet Indulgence, which lives up to its name! The desserts are amazing! It is an excellent restaurant with outstanding service. I was very impressed. My meal was delicious and flavorful. The... More

Our friends brought us to this restaurant. A nice choice. Our food was good and a nice serving size. Our server and overall service was good as well. The nice part was that once we spoke with our server and mentioned that we had not seen our friends for a number of years, the staff gave us the time to... More

First time here and this place is very quaint. Staff was attentive, place was quiet, food was tasty and best of all, they has a real bakery here. I had chicken parm and the meal was good to very good but the pie was the homeroom. I took a slice of key lime pie back to my hotel room and... More
