This is such a gem in Las Cruces. From the greeting at the door to the final bite, everything is spectacular. The owners and staff care about their guests (I bet you won't ever go and not find Gena making sure all the diners are happy), and that makes the visit a great one from the beginning. Then you throw... More

We love this restaurant! Their pizza is yummm (Tuesday night is two for the price of one), and have enjoyed several pasta dishes and the two salmon dishes too. But, our favorite is the Apricot Stuffed Pork Chop which is served on a bed of risotto and grilled veggies on the side.....so good! And then, do not skip dessert. If... More

Unusual start. Walked in and the hostess asked how many, my wife and I answered 4 and the young kid kept seating us on a table for two. After three attempts she got it. Our waiter was on top of things and friendly. The food was timely and accurate. Price was moderate. All nice and we do plan to return... More

3 of us had the lasagna...it was delicious! The pasta was homemade & very light. Before our entrees arrived, we had very fresh salads & homemade bread with whole cloves of garlic in warm olive oil. Yum! After our meal, we shared a slice of the turtle cheesecake which was superb...not too sweet! We'll be going back...

Raising a concern over a forgotten cup of coffee turned into a bizarre drama with a rude manager. Too bad.

The smoked chicken sandwich was very good and the green chile had a good kick to it. Pastas looked very good, kids said they were very good. All... More

We make it a point to pass through Las Cruces and enjoy the amazing array of entrees that Si offers. Most impressive is the Insalata Di Noci, featuring wafer slices of apple, walnuts, bleu cheese, and fresh greens. The pastas are house made, and the soups are always special , different each time we have visited. And the desserts are... More

We have been to SI three times in the past month. The third time was for lunch, the service was slow and felt chaotic. Our order was not taken for about 30 minutes. The lasagna was overcooked - the pizza was average. They were having a computer problem - it took almost 25 minutes to get the bill as it... More

Our waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and all the food was excellent, from appetizers to main meals, and we had both vegetarians and carnivores at our table. Then we shared several desserts which were all delicious!

I've eaten here many times and I've never been particularly impressed with the food. Every meal with have something that is good (fried zuchini appetizer) but the entrees have been a let down more often than not.

Thank LasCrucen
