    This place is in my top 2 restaurants of all time! I got the cheese/salami board as an appetizer, a spicy Paloma to drink, and the duck gnocchi + mashed potatoes for dinner. Everything was so delicious! I wish I lived closer so I could go more often.

    The staff were very courteous and helpful. The wine, appetizers and main course were all very delicious. I had the house sparkling wine which was very light, bubbly and refreshing. For my appetizer, I had the Mista Salad. The dressing and the feta cheese were very savory and complemented one another well. Finally, for my main course, I had the Milanese Chicken Burrata. The dish came with two lightly-breaded chicken breasts with pasta in a spicy sauce. The dish was very generous and I had to save half of it for leftovers. Overall, it was an amazing dining experience. I’d recommend the restaurant for casual dining or a special occasion.

    My wife, Debbie, and I LOVE Bar Roma! We love ALL the M'tuccis restaurants. Been going to their restaurants since we were eating their green chili in NYC in the 80's. The quality of the food and its preparation is solid, The price point of both appetizers, entrees and wine is acceptable ($9 appetizer, $16 pasta, $51 bottle of wine, 20% tip means our meal came in at under $50 a person including tip- that's comfortable for us (we split). Lastly, THE QUALITY OF THE TRAINING OF THE STAFF IS WORTH BOWING DOWN TO. BIG smile, competent, knowledgeable, attentive, glad to see us, looks you in the eye when asks how was it? Not rushed. Service was quick even though had to be a very bust night with Balloon Festival. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! YOU IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF OUR LIVES.

    Excellent food, great setting and ambiance, service was a little slow and the bar was backed up. Overall we loved the experience and would definitely go back. I hope the staff can pick up the service just a little bit and the bar can be staffed appropriately so drinks come out quicker. It's obvious that many servers were new so we were patient and understanding under the circumstances.

    Our waiter wasn’t interested in giving his best when we dined there last night. Didn’t even give us silverware or plates until we got our food. Gave us the last beer of the keg which was of course flat. We weren’t happy with our service one bit and didn’t see one manager walking around making sure everyone’s meal or experience was okay. Will not be going back unfortunately! Another Burque failure of good customer service!

    So loud in the dining room, our server couldn't hear our order so subsequently our food wasn't what we ordered and it was cold. Cacio de Pepe was good. Overall bad experience and won't be back.

    We had a wonderful experience. My family came to Albuquerque for the Ballon Fiesta. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I had the ravioli and my husband had the spaghetti and meat balls. The pasta was fresh and the light. The food was so good we came back the next night!

    Great food and service. It was simply too loud for our table to comfortably converse among the four of us. We were seated indoors by the front window. The restaurant would be superb if they invested in some noise reducing features.

    Impressed! Great service Brasil and Augie! So nice to have good porchetta I didn't have to make. Wife had a good pan-seared opah. Risotto was spot on and good pairings "from the garden" with both dishes. Nice to see cacio di roma on a menu and a bar that knows how to make a paper plane. It was wife's birthday and couldn't make a call on dessert, so got four to go: tiramisu, pear ricotta torte, berry crostada and seven veils cake. All were good, but we agreed the pear ricotta torte was exceptional. Pears were just right firmness, not soft or hard. To go photo definitely understates how good the desserts are.

    Bar Roma is my favorite M'Tucci's location. The bar is extensive and the bartenders know their stuff. Everything I've eaten here has been superb and the decor and ambience is lovely. The last couple times I've gone though, the service was slow and seemed to lack of urgency or attentiveness. I'll chalk it up to staffing issues, but would really like to see it improve.

    I get what they are trying to be. The 4 kids at the front did not greet, one on the phone and had to ask someone else what the soup was. She was handed a menu. The others were just talking to each other. Nice place? Have them greet and be courteous. Customer service is key. Server was great and food. Desert was AMAZING! They place was NOISY.

    Always a great experience here! The food is stellar and the service is always great. It did seem that the server was a bit overwhelmed at times (the restaurant is probably short-staffed) but he did his best to keep up with all the demands.

    We have eaten at all of the MTucci’s multiple times. Has always been great but this time failed on a number of levels. Surprising. - Received entree and salad at the same time - House salad had so much dressing that the lettuce was soggy - We requested two extra slices of bread. After 20 minutes and several apologies, they didn’t know where it was. We were fine with dinner and had ordered dessert and they were still trying to find it. We said just cancel. Manager did come and apologize. - Ordered coffee with dessert. Were told several times they were brewing a fresh pot. Finally got it well after our desserts were served. - We had tickets to the theater. MTucci’s is advertised as a dining partner so show tickets and get a 10% discount. Our server had no idea what we were talking about. Said she would ask the manager. Came back and said manager didn’t know but was working to figure out. Finally came back and said yes…and gave discount. The whole night was very off and not up to usual standard.

    The service was excellent and prompt. Many of the food selections we had were very good with the exception of the risotto side dish for my duck, which was too thick and pretty bland, topped with a garden's worth of kale. A little kale goes a long way, and since I had the delicious kale and sausage soup already, I was somewhat overwhelmed. Perhaps the wait staff could suggest an alternative vegetable, knowing what I had selected for a starter. I began with a Manhattan which was complex and not too sweet and the berry dessert and the ricotta cake were delicious.

    All hard surfaces, so it is loud. Not a good date place. The tables in bar area (where we ended up even with reservations) are too high for the chairs: you are about six inches above your food (and I’m 5’10”. God help you short people. Food and service were great.

    Took too long to be able to place drink order. Two of three wine orders were wrong. Again waited another 15 minutes to get replacements. Otherwise , food was fine. Suggest you get some acoustic panels to cut down on the clatter noise.

    Steve our server was great. Food was good. Music was too loud snd annoying. Indoor decor was nice; tables quit close together. Had to work to find my way out weaving around tabled. Patio area needs to have the paving steam cleaned. There is greasy kitchen tracking outside one of the doors. Not appetizing.

    We came to have a celebratory meal for a milestone birthday. The Maitre’d at check in said she knew this is a birthday occasion, however no one providing table service even mentioned the birthday. Evidently, that detail was forgotten or ignored. The table server was nice but her inexperience showed. She was not knowledgeable about the menu, left used utensils on the table when otherwise clearing the table and we had a delay in getting a steak knife to use for a pork chop dish. The food was very tasty and satisfactory! Decor is spartan, not themed as is customary for an Italian restaurant The noise-level inside the restaurant is fairly loud. Again, nothing was said or done at the table to affirm our birthday celebration.

    We have eaten at other locations in ALB for several years. Their food is generally good. We were disappointed with our meal at Bar Roma. The food came out warm to cold. The staff was attentive and heated the cold disk but it was a steak meant to be medium rare. In general, the staff was still learning their jobs. They were attentive but it wasn't a seamless operation. In full disclosure, my wife and I spent a few weeks in Italy in the spring and no one in ABQ will compete with how we ate in Italy.

    This is our fourth visit. Service is excellent as always. But the noise level makes it difficult to have a conversation. Particularly when there is a musician playing. The flat bread pizza which we’ve had several times was not the same. Too much oil/grease and over abundance of ingredients made the dough gloppy not crispy and light as before. We will return but will order something different next time. However, the noise level gives us pause.

    This is my 3rd time trying the Nob Hill M’attucis. I have always loved the food at the west side location. Every meal has been mediocre. Last night I had salmon that was way over cooked with cold broccolini. Before that a tasteless salad with way too much dressing. And before that very bond duck. I hope there is improvement because I would love to support.

    Service was not good. Sat and waited at table for over 10 min and waiter did not show up. Went to front and ask who our waiter was because they had not showed up. Waiter finally shows up and was non apologetic. Manager did come over and brought us a feee bread plate. Food was not up to par compared to other locations.
