Outstanding Italian Restaurant

My first time here. The food was very good, especially the antipasti plate, a real treat. The ambiance is the best. Will try the pizza next time. If you are in the mood for good Italian food, don't miss this place!

Not something I would have tried just from reading the menu but the Lemon Artichoke soup was stellar! Wish I had ordered extra to take home for supper! The restaurant wasn't terribly busy so we enjoyed visiting with our waitress who was very attentive. Can't wait to go back next time I'm in Las Cruces.

We loved the Italian food. Their marinara sauce was excellent. Salads were very fresh, bread had great crust, and the olive oil was upscale quality. After having a great meal, we tried the chocolate cake. The frosting was melt in your mouth, and the cake was very moist. We will definitely eat there again before we leave.

Wife and I had to wait a bit to secure a table on a Friday night and so we were starving as we sat down. The food was decent: not great but not bad. The portion sizes were fine. However, service was poor as our waitress disappeared and we struggled to get our water refilled.

This is my go to place when I want to have a fabulous bowl of soup. The Green chili Chicken soup is a must have when on the menu, along with the pumpkin, and wedding soup. The mini cream puffs are the perfect dessert after a filling meal. Yes, the pizzas are tasty along with their salads and sandwiches. The... More

Si Italian Bistro is becoming our go-to place for lunch or dinner or takeout. We still love to split a large salad and appetizer for lunch, especially the Frutti de Mare. More recently we are wanting to go back for the entrees, especially the Chicken Jerusalem and Salmon Lagaria entrees. I wish I knew how to make sauces like those... More

I guess you never know what you're getting but I really wanted a nice glass of wine. We bought a bottle of Italian wine and maybe it colored the evening with pleasure but I'd say it was the food and everything. The pumpkin soup was rather amazing, even my fussy husband said so. I had some cheese raviolis, and then... More

Fridays are perfect for the green chili chicken soup. Excellent menu of salads, sandwiches (love the pecan chicken salad sandwich, the portobello mushroom and blue cheese). I like it for business meetings as it is generally quiet with an attentive staff. Great desserts from cream puffs to cheese cakes - you can watch the cakes being made on the premises.... More

My bride and I had dinner here in the middle of the week. We had a great time. The live music was a fantastic touch. We started off with a glass of malbec each, reasonably priced and very good. We ordered a starter of the pumpkin bisque, which was incredible, and a house salad with Italian dressing, which was average.... More

During a long southwestern trek we wanted to get some take home to our hotel after an exhausting 12 hour drive from Texas. I found this restaurant recommended by our hotel and went there to obtain some food. Let me say two things: (1) I wish we had dined in! The place is fabulous as a restored Ranch House, impeccably...
