Great Italian in the center of town

I love their pasta vongole, but everything on the menu is good. Good wine list. Sometimes the service can be slow, but let them know if you are trying to make a performance at the TCA. We keep going back, because the food really is delicious.

No complaints here. Charming street side cafe just a few blocks from the town square. We dined outside and it was very pleasant even though it was only feet away from the busy street. Our eggplant sandwiches were excellent on chibata bread. Their cranberry cole slaw was a nice change of pace and very tasty. We highly recommend this venue... More

This is a sweet location. Adjacent to a park and also on main drag. Good for people watching. Should have noted there were no patrons on the patio. Stuck my head inside to inquire about allowing my dog on the patio. Only two patrons. No staff. Eventually the waiter showed up and seated us on the patio. He was very... More

There are many small restaurants in the center of town, but this one offers a quaint garden setting surrounding the adobe building. Lots of food and drink options from sandwiches to salads and Mexican entrees. Service is excellent. A really enjoyable stop before you resume walking around town.

I was curious about the place, in spite of the fact that it was always empty when I drove by. It's very quaint and in a great spot. Unfortunately, I think that because the customers are so sporadic, it's unlikely the food is fresh. Between 2 of us, we had calamari, spaghetti, and a salad. The calamari looked like frozen... More

This was a surprise. Lots of varied items on menu and good value. Tasty meals and nice personal service. A must for you to check out. In the heart of everything nice about Taos.

Ate there on a rainy day. The soup of the day was corn chowder. Neither of us could eat the soup as it was very greasy. The chicken on my sandwich tasted odd, so I didn't finish that. The only time we saw our waiter again was when he brought the check and didn't even bother to ask us if... More

We stopped in for a very late lunch. Met by a friendly waiter. Full menu available. I had the best onion soup ever. There's a beautiful outdoor terrace and a facinating handicraft shop next door, Adean Software with handmade products from South America.

First of all, we had a late lunch, so most help had gone home--so the owner took care of us outside in a nice cafe type atmosphere facing the street. It was a good view--watching people walk by and watching the traffic slowly drive by. The owner is a cool dude! And, the XM-Sirius satellite radio of the 80s quietly... More

We dined on a Sun in an almost empty restaurant after skiing. They were out of their draft beer, but had bottled beers. I ordered the Penne Arrabiata, which came with a nice chunky and quite spicy red sauce - delicious. Our kid had the meat balls which he finished completely. That doesn't always happen. My wife had the soup... More
