M'tucci's Moderno Italian - Rio Rancho
Always consistent and delicious
Boards were tasty as well as Ravioli and pizza
We were a party of four and three of us had the swordfish catch of the day...absolutely outstanding! The Arugula, artichoke and capers were the perfect finishing touches to the dish...A well rounded dish that will satisfy most everyone’s palate. The other plate on the table was the Lemon Artichoke Fussiloni pasta dish, also a good flavor but a bit heavier as it’s all pasta. It was an enjoyable evening with good food and family.
Sharon, I am so thrilled that you decided to join us. Thank you for the incredible review and we are so grateful for your support! We hope to see you back soon!
M'tucci's was an excellent dinning experience. Food was very tasty.
We love this restaurant it is a family favorite! We went for my birthday bad sat outside looking at the Sandia mountains the food is always fantastic!
Food is always delicious and presented well. Wait staff is awesome ; friendly and efficient. One of my favorite places in Rio Rancho!
Very welcoming staff who are attentive, listen, and are kind. Food is delicious. Another happy experience with these folks.
This is the place to eat in southern Sandoval County. Dining room is quieter than the bar. Interesting and unusual brunch menu Sundays
Mack, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and recommending us as well. Yes, the bar area is a bit more energetic than the dinning room area. Our brunches are normally a bit quieter in every area and yes our brunch options will leave you satisfied.
Everything was excellent. Mother's day was very busy and the staff handled it the best they could with grace and a smile. The noise level was a little high but not unbearable. My wife and mother in law enjoyed their food very much, as did I.
Randy, Thank you for joining us to celebrate Mother's Day here at Moderno, great to hear everyone enjoyed the day here. We look forward to seeing you soon!
First the reservations that were made for 12:00. When I arrived I was told my party was going to be placed upstairs. I told them that would not do because one person in the party was not able to negotiate the stairs (92 years old). We had to wait for the staff to rearrange the seating. Why not ask when reservations were made if upstairs was okay?
The noise level was extremely high and conversation was virtually impossible at the table. We sat there for quite some time before we were even recognized and drink orders taken.
The food was good, not exceptional especially considering the price.
Thank you for reviewing us! I am so sorry this happened to you and that we did not clarify about being sat upstairs until you arrived. I would like to invite you back to give us anther try and I will personally make sure your experience memorable. I hope to see you back soon!
The food and drinks were great, although a little pricey in my opinion. Our server was fantastic and very accommodating. The only issue I had is we made a reservation for 10 people, and they crammed us into 2 4-person tables, so we were all packed in pretty tight.
Jwalk, Happy you enjoyed the food and drinks, we take pride in making everything from scratch including the cocktails and House Lemonades. Our service standards and your experience are very important to us and we appreciate the feedback and will always work on improving the overall experience. We hope to see and your family back soon!
Moderno is as good as the first location. Food was great. Service was exceptional and enthusiastic. I just wish they had a location in the northeast heights!
James F. Thank you so much for your comments, we strive to be excellent and consistent at every location and we appreciate the recommendation. We are committed to improve and grow our brand in every way. See you soon!
Very nice Mother’s Day brunch!
I am so glad to you enjoyed it. We can't wait to have you back.
Busy night as usiual at Moderno. Happily, we were seated aweay form the noise...although we couldn't quite fully enjoy Delphina's music (bar was packed).
We very much enjoyed one of the three specials that night: scallops. Preceded by Boulevardier's.
And the surprise of the night---a pinot from California's Wente Bros. An old name Califonria winery now making comeback. The pinto was terrific. Austin thought they were out of it but came back with the happoy news- we have it! At $35, an excellent vallue.
Richard D, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us, we are pleased you enjoyed the evening and seems like the night worked out well, even there were no "front row seats" for Delpia's performance. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Food and service were excellent like usual.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We feel that consistency is extremely important in our restaurants and I hope to see you back soon!
Friendly staff, great food!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review!! We always appreciate feedback. How do you think we can improve and earn that five star rating?
If you like fresh homemade pasta (who doesn't?) with interesting sauces and ingredients, this is the place. Everything here is delicious, not just the pasta, from the desserts to the oso buco to the lamb chops to the salads. The prices are very reasonable for this type of fine dining. The decor is really unusual and pretty. The only downside was our service. She seemed distracted and almost resentful anytime we asked for anything. I have had excellent service all other times I have eaten here.
Initially my husband's shrimp was overcooked but they corrected it immediately. My dish was cooked to perfection. Our server was phenomenal. You just can't beat the service you get here. Between work events and date nights I'm dining here often and it is consistently excellent. I love having a quality restaurant like this in my hometown.
Thank you Ashley. We try to be perfect, but, if we're not we want to correct it immediately. Thank you for letting your server know there was a problem. That helps us be better and it helps us to reach our goal of having everyone happy when they leave.
Great brunch have to try the pastrami and waffles
Easter brunch was amazing! We go to M’Tucci’s because we always know it’s going to be good, with excellent service. Even with a splurge for a cocktail and dessert, our bill was reasonable. They’re also wonderful to our 9 year old. This is always our first choice when we go out to eat.
We love having kids in our place and always welcome families. We are glad to be your first choice in your dining out experiences, and we hope we will stay in that position for many years to come!
Went here for prom, great food and service! I recommend the margherita pizza!
The friends who recommended this restaurant went to the original location on Coors. We were disappointed when expecting a lovely Italian restaurant experience, but the physical space was a giant hall with open garage door, more in tune with a brew pub than fine Italian dining.
Unfortunately a special for that evening was halibut and instead of the normal consistency of fresh halibut, it was mushy and a bit lackluster in flavor.
We had two great meals and a very attentive waitress and staff...very friendly place.
Two friends and myself had a lovely lunch this past week. We arrived pretty early to avoid the lunch rush. The service was excellent, the ambiance was so nice and the food was devine. The only small distraction was the noise level was a bit high. Looking forward to returning.
Food was very good, portions were nice. Staff was very nice, service was very good, and the meal came out as you would expect. We will return.
Expensive and the food was bad ,
Thank you for reviewing us. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Do you have any specific details about the food that could help us improve? We also have a great bar menu with wonderful appetizers for $5 and our Market on Coors and Montano has $3 Cicchetti's (Italian Tapas). That way you don't have to feel like you're breaking the bank every time you join us...
I really loved the ambiance and food. Our server forgot many things and seemed flustered. They ran out of mashed potatoes which disappointed my husband. Based on his experience we probably would not return for a date night.
Thank you for reviewing us! We feel that consistency is extremely important in our restaurants, but every once in a while we run into small errors like running out of mashed potatoes.We apologize that the service was not up to par. I am so sorry this happened to you. I hope you know that we want your support and we are happy to correct our mistakes. I hope to see you back again.
What a lovely surprise to find this gem in my backyard. It was the perfect place for a lunch with a friend. The food and service were wonderful and I will be returning and taking out of town guests there when they visit from all points of the world. Thanks for a great afternoon.
Thank you so much for the review! Please come again soon.
Service was great. Bolognaise was excellent. The wild mushroom soup was cold.
Patrick, thank you for reviewing us. I am sorry that your soup was cold, we would have loved to have replaced it with a hot, fresh one. We hope you join us again soon.
This was my first time here . Service was awesome and the restaurant is amazing and beautiful. The atmosphere was very peaceful it has an at home relaxed feeling. Very clean and well kept. The staff reflect the restaurant's atmosphere well. The food was very good portions could be a bit bigger but still satisfied with it . Keep doing what you're doing because its working. I am very happy with you and will most definitely be returning.
Food different and tasty
This review is great!! Thank you for taking the time to submit it. Join us again soon!
Flatbread pizza to die for. Service is great
Thank you so much for this fantastic review!! We can't wait to have you back.
Pretty lighting, friendly seating staff. One member of our party never received their food and there was no apology. When it was finally resolved they made it feel like like our fault. But once that was passed, the rest of the meal was lovely.
Thank you for reviewing us. I am sorry that your guest didn't receive their meal. Would you mind me asking what the meal was or who your server was so I can address the situation and we can avoid these issues in the future?
It was our first visit to M’tucci’s. The hostess and waiter we attentive and friendly. The nightly specials was a t bond steak. The steak was grisly and tough. The portion of spaghetti and meatballs was small. For a $15 meal I expected more of the spaghetti. It’s not a restaurant we are interested in trying again.
One of our children bought a home and moved in that day so we took them to dinner to celebrate.
Thank you so much for including us in your families special day!! We are glad you enjoyed everything, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
We were chastised by staff for asking for forks to eat our Olive Oil Cake, and were told it’s typically eaten with a spoon. It’s cake, not gelato or crepe brûlée’! Couldn’t believe it. Spoons on table were used for our coffee. Server was not familiar with key ingredients. Food was just OK; Luke warm. Manager did refund cost of dessert. But, was not very pleasant when doing so . Will not return!
Seated immediately. Waiter was on top of everything, and food was fantastic.
Wow! We appreciate your five star review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
