Thanks for another great meal! Our 4th visit. You never disappoint! So, that's why we brought our daughter, her homecoming date and his family along this time. Thanks for making it so memorable & special! With Fiesta & Homecoming making the night extra busy, we were blown away by the AWESOME SERVICE! She was so incredibly calm, cool & totally prepared! Thank you! We will continue to keep you as our #1 local choice for great dining!

Great food and service. Very busy night.
We were seated at the "head" of a line of two place tables starting just behind the hostess desk and extending to the back of the room -- right next to the party tables. When everyone was seated, the waitstaff could not safely get between our table and the party group. Can't control party group noise but should control traffic pattern better.

Fresh rich flavors make the dinning phenomenal. Attention to detail is given to every dish. The only draw back is it’s very LOUD! So loud it can be hard to talk across the table at times. I would go back for the food, not a place for a romantic date when it’s busy.

The food was fresh, great menu too. I had the meatballs and spaghetti. They use three meats in the meatballs. That’s why I ordered that. You can buy half portions which allows you not to overstuff yourself. I wondered why they charge for the bread but I guess it’s because so many people waste it.

I'll keep it short. We've been coming here for a few years now. The menu does not change and many of the dishes are now thrown together. Saturday night my wife decided to order a Mista salad with chicken. The Chicken was clearly cooked in the same pan as a previous fish dish. Both the smell and taste of the chicken was of a strong fish odor and taste! She elected to finish just the salad and the owner and manager said they would take care of her. They took $3.00 off the bill for the chicken. As one of the few half-decent restaurants in Rio Rancho that we can also book through Open Table, I hope they double down on quality. As for now, my wife says no more!

Responded on August 7, 2019

To start, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience with us and about the mix-up with how we discounted the chicken from the ticket. We feel that consistency is extremely important in restaurants, but every once in a while we do have small errors like what happened to the chicken for your salad. I am glad we were able to talk over the phone about what had happened. Again, I am sorry this happened and I hope to see you back so we can make this up to you.

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.
