I love El Pinto and their padio, unfortunately this last time food came out just warm. The server acted like plates were hot, but they we just warm. Cheese was melted so I assume it just sat for a while before it was served. This is not the first time this has happened. I love the place and I took out of town guests who agreed the food was just 8 out of 10, their plates were just warm as well. Prices are a bit high. Margarita for $16? Tequila Herradura is $40 for a whole bottle at the store and you can make about 10 Margaritas with that with some tri sec and fresh squeezed lime. The best deal is almost expired Salsa jars for $2 each. Get those.

Delicious food! Fast service! Very kind and friendly server. Fun atmosphere. Chef came over and asked us how our birthday celebration was going… he knew we were there for a birthday; no evidence of it. Definitely make a reservation or the wait can be over an hour.. we had a ressie…. We really enjoy dining here… it’s our “go to” place. Most importantly for me is that they have a vegan menu… I’m vegan and my Son isn’t so we were both happy!

About the restaurant
Welcome to M'tucci's! A locally owned business that loves making dishes from scratch using high quality products. We make our own sourdough bread, pasta, mozzarella cheese and more! Located in Historic Nob Hill, we have an incredible view of route 66 and a beautiful patio. We also work hard to have an amazing beverage program including hand crafted cocktails, 14 beers on draft and a large wine selection. We tend to go on a wait during high traffic hours so reservations are highly recommended. If you have any seating preferences please note them in your reservation as we have a beautiful bar along with two dining areas and a chefs bar for seating.

Parties over eight are subject to a 20% gratuity. Outside desserts are allowed, but we have a $15 outside dessert fee. We do have one complimentary dessert from our menu for celebrations!

Excellent service from Alyssa and a very delicious meal that included salads, entrees and a birthday dessert (Key Lime Pie). I had a wedge salad & lobster ravioli and my friend had the apple walnut salad & rack of lamb. I'm looking forward to returning for another meal! Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

Our dinner was fabulous. For my birthday there was a birthday card on the table that was signed by the wait staff, and it kept getting better from there. The staff is wonderfully competent and professional. Food came quickly and our Fillets melted in our mouths. I could write paragraphs about the very special experience...and it is here in Albuquerque!

About the restaurant
Our fourth New Mexico location is open. We look forward to showing you a celebration of la dolce vita -- serious food in a warm environment. Gather, eat, talk, laugh, connect with your community over a delicious meal. If you ate it here, we made it here. Why? Because hand-crafted food made from the best ingredients is the Italian way. The M'tucci's way.
