This was my second time dining at Tanti Luce 221 and both times were very good, but not equal to the final tab, which puts it nearing the pretty expensive range.
The service and ease of making reservations couldn't be more friendly and professional.
Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and every staff member is very team oriented and focused. The menu is relatively small and diverse with a nod to both Italian and a fusion of fairly routine Santa Fe style offerings. The cocktails offered are on a par with the best in town, but the price tag elevates them to a one only limit for me. What also prompts me to limit my intake of what are really inventive, well constructed cocktails is the pitifully small "by the glass" wine offerings.
The dining room is subtly lighted and nicely appointed with warm modern art on the walls to balance the age and rustic adobe nature of things in the dining room. As crisply white as everything is painted, the room exudes warmth to match the fine service and mood.
We started with a nice beet, goat cheese, artichoke hearts and wild greens salad and were very satisfied with our choice. The bread basket offered and top grade olive oil was well suited for our choice.
I had the pork tenderloin with green chile infused, mashed sweet potatoes and seared brussel sprouts which as a child was one of my least desired vegetables. I'm now convert and these were wonderfully prepared and cooked to perfection. My wife enjoyed the hand made pasta with bolognese sauce and it was quite good as we are prone to share everything when dining out. Kind of a twoferone thing we've practiced for decades.
All in all, a very nice meal with outstanding service. Stellar? No, but quite good all the same.
