The menu is still the same. I'm not sure if there is a new owner or cook but I have to say that the food tends to be disappointing nowadays. The middle of the pizza dough always tends to get soggy (and all I get is cheese pizza), which never used to be a problem before.

If you are dying to try il vicino I highly recommend the westside location as the quality of food is superb.

I prefer the likes of Firenza and Amore Pizza. Trying to make their pizza's too foo-foo. I prefer the real thing like Neapolitan Pizza!

Il Vicino serves pizza with a New Mexican twist. Everything is a bit spicy -- or more so if you ask them to add additional chile. The one oddity I didn't understand was that they expect tips in what is basically a self-service environment. The only thing the server actually does is bring your pizza to your table when it's cooked. Everything else is accomplished at the ordering counter.

A favorite lunch place in Downtown Albuquerque. Staff is very friendly and service is superb.Food quality is outstanding. Looking for a good paninni for lunch? Il Vicino is the place.

Gamberoni pizza with shrimp is the favorite. If you like to add spice try the spicy oil instead of crushed pepper .
