The pizza is better than Pizza Hut, but then so are lots of things. If you're a beer drinker, you'd be happier. If your focus is food, go to Farina.

Stopped in for a couple late night Pizzas to go, and had to eat some before we could leave it was so good!. Great Tap beer and Wine selections at this upper scale but comfortable place on Route 66. Staff was very friendly and polite, and we enjoyed sitting at the bar watching the Cook make our Pizzas in minutes.... More

I've eaten at a lot of restaurants and this is definitely one of the best. I ordered the Penne Pasta Alfredo. Yummm.... Making me feel hungry just thinking about it.

We were there in the evening for pizza, salad, and wine, and everything met expectations. The pizza [the regular size is enough for two people] was very well-prepared, just enough char on the crust and not gooey. The ingredients--fresh mushrooms, anchovies, and so on--were tasty. The salad was generous if not particularly inventive. The wine was adequate for the kind... More

We wanted a quick dinner and came upon Il Vicino while visiting ABQ. It's casual (you order at the counter and the food is then bought to you). And it was brought to us so fast, we were amazed. The pizzas were delicious, though they could have been a little more well done and toasted on the bottom (hence the... More

Good pizza and salad in a laid back setting. Great place to share a few items and watch the crowd. Pleasant staff, willing to accomodate. Give it a shot and don't forget to have a beer!

I went to the one on Central Avenue near Tulane. The selection is broad, and my friend and I shared a white pizza. It was one of the best pizzas I've had in a long while: fresh ingredients with fresh flavors, not overly doughy crust. The service was friendly and very efficient. Nice, relaxed atmosphere -- and right next door... More

I was going to the movie next door, so just dropped in for the first time. Had a great chicken salad. Service was average, personnel very nice, surroundings lovely. The orders people were receiving around me (pizza, sandwiches, etc.) looked wonderful. Very tasty.

I'm a monster fan of the CO Springs Il Vicino. Albuquerque wasn't as good on a couple of counts. The service at the counter was friendly and good, but our waiter was a little clueless. He didn't check in to see how the food was, and to be honest he just seemed a little spacy. The pizza crust wasn't as... More

My wife and I ate dinner here. Excellent pizza. Soup and salad was very fresh and tasty. Very reasonably priced. Servers and staff were quick and friendly. Not a cozy, romantic Italian restaurant but the food was worth it. Would eat here again.
