Met friends for dinner there. The restaurant is very pleasant without being ostentatious, something unusual for Santa Fe. The food was very good. Service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. It is tough to find good Italian food in New Mexico but the fresh seafood dishes with an Italian flair were very good. For what we received the prices... More

The environment was very comfy, and the food was good. The service was okay. I was surprised that we only saw the waitress once when she took our order. Everything else was handled by several different young men. When we accidentally took the wrong receipt leaving the one that did not show the tip, she was quick to show up... More

This is a very classic style Italian restaurant. The food is well prepared, well presented and very tasty. The service was really classic and quite professional. Overall, we had a very enjoyable dinner experience here and I would definitely return here and recommend this restaurant. It is a pleasant change from the southwest fare we were eating during most of... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the variety and freshness of the pizzas we ordered. My fav had artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers and goat cheese. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. A nice break from the typical Santa Fe restaurants.

We just had a wonderful evening at the Italian Grill. Some reviewers commented on the slow service; we found just the opposite. Our waiter was both attentive and personable. When we ordered he made sure we knew that one of the dishes would take about 30 minutes. No problem at all and his time estimate was correct. Dinner was excellent.... More

Solid experience here! 1/2 price wines, beer and well drink specials. One of our party had red sangria and thought it was weak. Bar menu was 25% off from 4-6 pm daily. Very nice atmosphere and busy on a Sunday....probably because it's a very good happy hour. Delicious pizzas, fried zucchini, fried seafood, bruschetta, etc. we have already told friends... More

Stopped here on was back from Los Alamos. We weren't very hungry and had lighter fare. I chose the Tomato Squash Soup and a Spinach Salad. Both were delicious. My husband ordered the Spring Spinach special and added grilled chicken. It, too, was yummy although quite heavy on the garlic for our taste. Good bread with three olive oil choices.... More

This is our third time here for Happy Hour while visiting and we love the ambience and sitting at the bar talking to the locals and the bar help, we always learn something new and the prices are great.

I make sure to include a visit to this restaurant every time I am in Santa Fe. Great Itailan food. I ordered on of the half orders of pasta with a side salad and it make a perfect dinner. We finished by sharing the grilled lemon sorbet dessert -- don't miss it!. Great selection of wines.
