I'm a Chicago style pizza fan but my husband is a New York style pizza lover. This is one of his favorite places to eat at, ever. Not in a great part of town. All walks of life can be found here, from homeless to trendsetters. Anyway, the food is so good that I take my kids here by myself.... More

Don't come to NM for pizza. Don't come for pasta. Don't come for seafood. It's not what we "do". But, if you're in NM, and maybe you're from "back east", and you just want a great slice of pizza to tie you over until you can get back home ... This is the place! The best pick? Hands down, the...

Support local. Great reviews. Good service. Clean. Greasy pizza. Not the NYC pizza I was hoping to find.

Apparently, this neighborhood joint does not advertise because they do a booming business as a result of word-of-mouth. We were there 1pm on a very hot Saturday afternoon, and the place was almost empty except for a few folks coming in for take-out orders. I would describe the place as 'utilitarian'...we're here to give you pizza. No coffee, no wine.... More

Rated the best of Abq? I'm not sure. Its okay. With so many wood fired pizza places these days (Lucas, Farina, Scarpas....) pizza is pretty tough competition. It's not bad but I've had better in the city. As far as traditional pizza goes Dions is still better in my opinion.

We stopped by this restaurant after a co-worker suggested it. He has gushed many times about how it is the "best pizza in town". Well, I can't speak to the pizza myself as I am unable to eat it, but I can tell you that the other two gentlemen in our party, who did have it, were less than impressed.... More

A recent review tagged Giovanni's with the single word "filthy". If they had used the word "shopworn" I could agree, the place has been around a long time. The floors are somewhat worn but I am not aware of any City of Albuquerque Health Inspections that failed. I was there yesterday and saw nothing of what was described in the... More

I do not think there is anything on the menu that would not be enjoyed. There is much than just pizza. My advice, just go there. Mangia! Manngia!

The place is not dirty it is Filthy, floors have so much grime it would be hard say when the last mop was. Security camera sitting above the register along with every vent has several years worth and layers of dust that floats around. I couldn't even imagine how their filthy upkeep affects the food. There is no doubt the... More

One of the best Neapolitan pizza joints in Albuquerque is Amore, however this place is reminiscent of a thin crust "New York" "Boston" style pizza that comes out of a more conventional oven. What you should expect as a more down scale neighborhood pizza place with some Italian entrees and salad, a funky family restaurant without many amenities. Booths and... More
