Visiting Santa Fe for one night and craving pizza, we came across Il Vincino with good reviews, so we gave it a go. What a mistake. After arriving, we discovered it is a chain restaurant with a location in our home town of Denver...our bad. First of all, the wine list has a lot to be desired, but the beer... More

The pizza was good and was available for take out which was great for the tired adults (and kids). Unfortunately the beer was not available for take out.

When you don't have a lot of time and don't want to spend a lot of money this is a great place to have a delicious, pleasant meal. All the pizzas and salads are good. The ice tea is fresh and I've enjoyed every glass of wine I ordered there.

The past two times we've eaten here it's been merely OK. I still like the setup of walking in and ordering - it moves things along if you're familiar with the menu and are ready to eat. And I've enjoyed it in the past - the outdoor seating area can be fun. But the salads and pizza, which is what... More

Unlike all other restaurants I've visited in over 10 years in Santa Fe, Il Vicino will not package unfinished wine bottles so that you can take them out of the restaurant back to your hotel or to home. This is not mentioned in any signage or on their wine list. A waitstaff supervisor claimed that their license did not allow... More

This place garners rave review from some, and shows up in the top three Italian restaurant category in the local paper. BUT, what is not said is that Il Vicino is part of a regional chain. It is not the same experience as a locally-owned Santa Fe restaurant. Also, what is NOT said is the process of ordering your food.... More

We had a very good lunch at IL Vicino. When you enter you place your order for food and drinks and take your seat. Our order was filled very quickly. I had the lasagna and my wife had the house salad. Both were very good. The restaurant had a great variety of pizzas. The wait staff was very good.

You walk in and order your food and drinks from the front bar, you get a number and go seat yourself. Beer is good. They have a really delicious chile oil on the table to spice your pie. Staff is prompt and friendly. Pizza is really really good! You can even watch the cooks make your pizza as there is... More

Visited Il Vicino for a easy and relaxed dinner and also to drink some of the Il Vicino beers. You order at the counter when you arrive and then are served your food, beverages, etc. There is a wide variety of neopolitan pizzas and other authentic Italian offerings such as piadine (Italian pita bread sandwich). The beers on tap are... More

If you are looking for authentic Italiano pizza, this is the right place. They make pizza by hand, bake it in old fashion European oven; loved watching how pizza was made. They said the average number they made was 400 pizzas per day. And Taramiso cake was amazing. Пицца испечена в печи, приготовлена при тебе; просто здорово
