“Wonderful food”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were there for lunch and everything was top notch. They also have a lovely wine list. New Mexico never fails to delight and surprise...would love to go there again.

“Not what you would expect at a trading post!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

A friend recommended this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. What a lovely surprise the interior was! The service was wonderful from the moment we walked in the door to the moment we walked out. We were greeted immediately & taken to a very cozy corner table. I had the Fettuccine Alla Carbonara which was delicious & he had the Penne Arrabbiata Pasta which he loved. We had a never ending bread basket. If you like a good Chardonnay try the house white-mmmmm. As we were leaving, the owner thanked us for coming. The entire meal was a very pleasant experience. Can't wait to go back to Taos so we can try it again!

“best chiles rellenos on the planet”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I have eaten chiles rellenos from Amarillo to San Diego, even in Hatch, and these are by far the best. I have eaten at this restaurant maybe a dozen times over the years and have never been disappointed. I have been here with both large and small groups, and the service is always good, and the food fantastic. Their sopapillos are fresh and hot and crispy, with pillowy insides that melt in your mouth when topped with honey. The prices are very reasonable, and the outdoor patio is a great place to take your meal.

“Surprising location for fabulous Italian”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Located couple of miles outside the Taos proper but worth the drive back for thje most flavorful pasta dishes in a Little Italy setting the region has to offer. I arrived a little early and was greeted warmly to go ahead and order.

“Local favorite serving diverse Italian food”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Enjoy a wonderful meal at this local favorite situated in the Historic Trading Post Building. The walls are covered with paintings by local artists. The service and food was outstanding. Besides the choices on the menu, there are always great daily specials.
