on our first night in Albuquerque we decided on Italina and were not disappointed. The food wasn't gourmet but well prepared and delivered. Good flavor for the pasta dishes and the Chicken Parmigiana.

They do have gluten free pasta options. Like most gluten free pasta, it is just okay. There are other menu items that are pasta and gluten free.
