Busy, but great paninis!

We stopped to eat here right before the holidays while doing some shopping. The pizza at Il Vicino is always good, but we both opted for paninis. They were excellent, and the portions are generous. The service was good and quick as well.

We got there and nobody was at the gate, so we saw a girls and asked for a table. She gave us a table and after 10min, we asked for menus, a server told us that we had to order before sitting. The front desk guy were very rude blaming us for not reading the signs... they wanted us to... More

Seriously. The best pizza in the city and I consider myself a pizza connoisseur. Wood oven pizzas. I love the #9 with goat cheese, mushrooms and sausage. Lots of good choices. Have beer they brew at off sight facility.

Nice meal. They've remodeled since the last time i was here. My wife and I went to the one on Montgomery for our second date about 12 years ago and we have never been disappointed by this restaurant. The root beer is excellent. I had the penne alfredo, which I believe is new to the menu. It was great, although... More

Il Vicino started with a small restaurant near the University of NM and has since expanded to several locations, more in Albuquerque, one in Santa Fe, and even one in Wichita KS. It has its own brewery, all pizzas are stone-baked, with either "pick a pizza" or build your own - carefully using herbs and spices to compliment the ingredients.... More

We go here often but this is my first review. I highly recommend this place. Very consistently excellent food and nice service (although you order when you walk in and then they bring your food to the table). Pizzas are interesting and very flavorful. The salads are a feast. Beers are micro-brewed. The atmosphere is well tailored to an excellent,... More

The place was very busy on a Thursday night and for good reason. There is good variety in the individual pizza selections and they are made to order. The wine list is limited but well priced and there is a much bigger beer selection. You order and pay for your food before you are seated and then the pizza is... More
