M'tucci's Moderno is a great little find for dining, not just eating.

Wait person made us feel special, helped us with choices and brought our orders quickly.

We enjoyed cocktails with appetizers then ordered dinner for a comfortable evening. They did not rush us; the food was delicious. I wanted to try this for some time now and will definitely return.

Excellent Italian food with exceptional service nearby! Went here on Saturday evening after a rather miserable Valentine's Day experience Friday evening at one of ABQ's "up-scale" restaurants that was serving a "Prix Fixe" dinner. M'tucci's made up for it in spades with outstanding food, exquisite service and an overall great experience! Saved our Valentine's weekend.

Valentines was extra special due to the excellent and attentive staff! I had communicated via opentable a special request which was followed by a phone call from the hostess. In short they were happy to accommodate my special evening with my wife but called to let me know they did not have flowers available. I stopped by the next day, a few hours prior to my reservation, and dropped off flowers for the table, a card and a gift. Staff was fully engaged in my plan and took it to heart. I arrived early for dinner with my wife and they had already setup my table! No wait! My wife was blown away!! What a fantastic memory! We will be back! OFTEN!

Very disappointed the waiter wasn't very knowledgeable, didn't get part of my order till after I ate .The bread was burned and stale . I ordered a iced tea and got it in a plastic bottle ( very tacky ). My portion of food was pathetic especially for the price.
i felt rushed due to the time limit. My first time there was great but this second time was very disappointing and I wont be returning or recommending.

Mike I'm so sorry that this experience with us was one that you did not enjoy. We do offer our Italian peach tea in a bottle because it is brought in from Italy, but we do have fresh brewed iced tea that we make in house. We know that Valentine's day is a very busy holiday, but we want all of our guests to feel welcomed and to enjoy their visit. We hope that you will give us another try. Never hesitate to reach out to your server or the manager, that way we can quickly rectify any mistakes.

Food and service was very good, but the bar and kitchen need improvement. I ordered a club soda with lime, and when I took a sip it tasted very soapy. The lingering soap taste sickened me a bit. Then the salads were served after a long wait, but the entrees arrived less than five minutes later. Weird and somewhat annoying. The waiter was apologetic, it wasn’t his fault, but the combination of the two flubs ruined what could have been a great experience.

M'tucci's Moderno Italian - Rio Rancho
Responded on February 12, 2020

We are so sorry that the club soda did not taste right, and that the salads took a while to get to your table. We always appreciate feedback and we look to fix what we can when our guests notice that things aren't coming out right. Never hesitate to reach out to a manager we want to rectify mistakes as quickly as possible and we want our guests to enjoy their experience with us. We hope you will come back and give us another try.

As always, the service and the food were great. The noise level in the dining area got pretty loud when the band started, making conversation a bit difficult. It would help if the band could be moved further back into the bar, rather than near the front.
