This is a small Italian restaurant on a popular strip. You order and pay when you walk in. The waiter then brings your drinks and delivers your food when it is ready. While that may sound like cafeteria style, it actually works quite well. I ordered the Margherita Pizza for $7.50. At that price I thought it was a personal... More

Positive thing: they have a brick oven. Crust was cooked the correct amount of time but I personally didn't like the taste of it. Same for the mozzarella...a better mozzarella would have changed completely my opinion. Overall pizza was good but there's area for improvement. Nice that they have spicy/hot oil on each table. Place was nice and relaxed.

A varied variety of pizza, beer and other dishes. Why would anyone go to fast food pizza joint when you have this place instead! Best pizza in Albuquerque. Personal size pizzas, salad and a beer for a reasonable price. The service is attentive to your needs and friendly. I'll be back!

Like many places in Nob Hill there is some effort to provide a degree of vegetarian fare though finding vegan requires some work on the part of the patron. This establishment has been around a while in Nob Hill and has undergone at least one renovation over the years. It has also been uneven in the quality of the food... More

Go there for lunch sometimes and for dinner as well. They have excellent salads and a whole array of other Italian type cuisine. The Salsiccia pizza is quite good as is their Pepperoni. If you like crafted beer with your pizza, this is definitely the place for you.

First time visit for us. You walk in and are asked to place order before seating yourself. Menus are at the door if you need a minute to decide. Just a few feet away is someone who was eager to take our order and accommodate our requests. We ordered, paid and took our order stem with number and seats. Within... More

Location: Not from NM a friend took us here right when I flew in! Street parking! Customer Service: It was pretty late at night not too many people but we were seated right away and the food came out quick! Decor: Reminds me a lot of a little hipster joint, or a restaurant I would have went to when I... More

The place is a bit tight. But as you walk in, you smell the great aroma of fresh food and pizza baking. Well, yeah, pizza (and salad) were ordered. Wine is available as well. Overall, the food is great. You are just here for lunch and leave. It is too noisy for business lunch conversation.

For my family, our favorite location is the one on the West side at Corrales. For those who do not know, you will see a huge menu right when entering, and then you proceed to the register to order. After you order and pay they will give you a number so your server can find you at whatever table you... More
