    All the food was very good, loved that they do a lot of their cheeses and cured meats in-house. You can taste the difference.

    Most entrees were pretty good; one was terrible, a plate full of pork fat with little overall flavor. They did take that entree off our bill but certainly would have preferred to have an edible entree. Wine good, service satisfactory, loud environment.

    Great service! Food was delicious although my wife’s risotto wasn’t cooked well. Our server was fantastic and would love to come back soon! P.s that Twinkie is sooooooo good!

    Bar Roma was buzzing on a Tuesday night; great. Our LA friends were in town and were impressed with bar selections, menu and price point. Jordan , Server was training Sabrina, great service. Jordan admitted not being well versed on wine and gladly asked bar tender for “super Tuscan” wine recommendations. She admitted that our party challenged her on wine advice and seemed genuinely interested in learning. I hope this helps her in future seatings that request wine recommendations- probably M’tuccis does this already, provide training to servers on food and wine. It’s so great to have a standout dining experience with knowledgeable staff. As for us locals, we’ll be back again and again!

    We heard it was really good, but that was an understatement. Truly excellent. Literally everything we ate was amazing. Terrific service too. And honestly, the price was more than reasonable (not cheap, but not expensive) making it an excellent value as well. Highly, highly recommended.

    We enjoyed the handmade pasta; however, they really skimp on the sauce for all their dishes. The server told my husband that not much sauce came with his chicken dish and asked if he'd like to pay for more. It's ridiculous that sauce is an upcharge. There was no sauce on the pasta on either the eggplant or chicken entrees. The food is okay, nothing special. Prices are high for what you get.

    Have enjoyed the other M'Tucci locations many times. The italian sausage & kale zuppa was very good. The escarole caesar salad was so so in taste. The pan seared salmon was very good, broccolini was cool in temperature. Outside sun shone on table so a bit too bright, no blinds available. Noise level was too loud for us to talk comfortable across the table.

    First visit and was very happy we decided to stop here. We did cocktails, appetizers, salad, entree and dessert and thoroughly enjoyed each course. Tried two local cocktail creations and The Roman was a favorite for a citrusy, warm weather drink. The food was well prepared, reasonable portions and priced competitively for the quality. Desert was a real hit, a fruity torte with homemade ice cream. The service was outstanding with time between courses perfect. We will definitely go again and encourage friends to dine here as well.

    We were looking for an outdoor patio, & love M’tucci’s food, so decided to try Bar Roma. The patio is very pleasant, and the food & service meet M’tucci’s consistently high standards. We’ll be back for sure.

    we have eaten at an older location of M'Tucci's and were happy to see them open in our neighborhood here in Nob Hill. Tried it first the second day they were open, have been back about 6-7 times now. I have ordered something different every time, every meal has been excellent, the service is great, the negroni's here are fantastic, and the renovation of the space from when it was a brewery is beautiful. I am particularly picky to probably demanding when it comes to Italian food from growing up eating in old school spots in New England like the North End of Boston, and the best comment I can make is that these folks have nailed it every time.

    Strongly suggest you do not seat patrons in the front windows late afternoon/evening in summer until you get some shades. We had to move because of the heat and blaring light. Otherwise, great ne addition to Albuqueruque.

    We live in Nob Hill and spend lots of time eating in the REAL Rome. We were all set to have a great dinner (house and caesar salads, house bread, and calamari were all excellent) and then the entrees arrived. The pasta in the Pasta alla Gricia was WAY over cooked and totally ruined the dish. Both the Porchetta di Roma and Duck Gnocchi were very unspecial and missed the mark. The Pear Ricotta dessert was flavorless while the Rasberry Sorbet was excellent.

    The food was good and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The place looks great (I remember what it looked like when it was Kelly’s). The noise level was unpleasantly high and the room we were in was very warm. Would recommend it as a lunch place — not for a quiet dinner.

    We overall liked our evening here. We sat outside so the noise level was fine for conversation. The bread and basil oil were very good. The ravioli was also good. I had the gnocchi with veggies. The broccoli was pretty undercooked but the gnocchi and sauce were very good. The server was very sweet - a few things were brought belatedly, like utensils — but she was very attentive. She may have been a little new. We thought it was a good value as well. We’ll be back!

    We booked a patio table at the perfect time of early summer evening to celebrate and finally try out this place (after all the hype!) bc it potentially would have one of the best patios in Nob Hill, if done well (well spaced tables w landscaping etc). So when we arrived, we were informed by the hostess that they were not serving on the patio that evening despite our ability to make a patio reservation. OK. So we were given a nice booth inside but not a table along a window, which would most approximate a patio table. Whatever, and forgive my attitude but I’m in a mood. And I’m trying to give useful balanced feedback in case they care. After the disappointment of the seating experience, I do want to say we thought the food was very good. It was very crowded and very expensive so happy that the restaurant is off to a successful launch! The wait staff was very nice. They were just too busy to check very often if we wanted another drink etc. anyway I hope they get their patio worked out soon because I would like to go back and eat outside as initially planned. Consult a landscape architect huge potted plants to get some greenery ambiance to cool and break up the vast concrete expanse. Consider sun/shade balance through the seasons. Cheers!

    A couple weeks ago we tried to get in on a Friday night 7pm with no reservation and were able to get eats at the bar after a 20 minute wait. It was packed. We had access to the full dinner menu. Drinks were great, Bartender was entertaining and noise level was predictably very loud - overall satisfying for a bar. Most recent visit was a Wednesday night at 6pm. Made an Opentable reservation for 4 well in advance and once we arrive we were seated at a free standing table in front room. We asked for a booth but they said that had to be requested in the reservation (how ?) Food was tasty, service very good, but still so loud I couldn't hear the person right next to me. My question - why have loud music in the whole place at 6pm ? We may come back but not for dinner conversation.

    I relied on M'Tucci's reputation to book lunch with an important colleague flying in from Illinois. The atmosphere was quiet, conducive to our business conversation. The vegetarian lunch special was outstanding. The wait staff was very attentive. I am raving about my experience to all my friends, and I will definitely be back soon to experience dinner!

    The food at M ‘Tucci is always good, however the service and ambiance was not what we were looking for when dining out. We were greeted by three hostesses that were not trained on how to greet guests. One was particularly snooty concerned how she looked versus caring about the customer. I asked to sit at one of the three empty tables by the window and was told no. Two of the tables remained empty all night. Our server’s timing was all off showing lack of training. If you like a casual setting this is for you. Many were in shorts and tee shirts. We did not expect that. When they get the patio set up it should be very nice. It was rather noisy. Overall I’m giving it a 3, and the food 4 stars.
