The tortellini was just ok tonight. The chicken sausage was tasteless. Disappointed. Usually good, maybe an off night.

Wednesday Prix Fixe was fantastic value. M’Tucci’s food is the closest I’ve found to the food in Italy. Authentic and delicious.

Very busy for Monday evening—luckily we had a reservation. Service was slow—took longer than it should have to get our bottle of wine. However, all wait staff were professional and pleasant. I had chicken Picatta—I thought it must be good because our sever said I got the last “one”. But, it was just okay. The potatoes were a little too thin and the chicken was a small leg and thigh—meat was tender but not much of it—the potatoes took up most of the plate. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs. He said it was okay—pretty plain Jane. It was fairly crowded and noisy, so I am not sure we would go out of our way to go back.

We were a large group that did not arrive all at the same time. We were seated as we arrived and the waiter handled the group perfectly.
A pleasant experience with good food!

Start was rough, we were seated immediately, then no contact for 15 min. I asked a waiter if he could get our waiter, he apologized, got us our drinks, and said he would get our waiter. Turns out Ryan became our waiter, he was absolutely awesome. I understand things can get missed, but wha a great recovery!

The food here is excellent, the service is attentive and friendly. It can get pretty loud when the restaurant is full but that is one of the few drawbacks. Occasionally, the kitchen has a misstep but it is quickly corrected when pointed out to the wait staff. Good value for the money.

Not to be repeated. The waiter is over loaded and as a result, you are immediately put in a rushed environment. I ordered the "catch of the day", described as halibut like, then changed to flakey, and then served as an inedible glob of something, rubbery, and unrecognisable as fish. Sent back for unremarkable salmon served in a bowl with some kind of red marinara sauce, roasted potatoes and asparagus. Not very good. In the meantime my wife food had been served, a pasta in a bowl, also unremarkable and getting cold waiting on my salmon. Salad were there best entre, and by the way, bread is ordered as a extra, also unremarkable. Once is enough for me.

I highly recommend M'tucci's. The food is the very best Italian in ABQ - bar none. Each dish is an authentic fresh home made dish. The Eggplant is the very best I have ever had a small melted cheese top and sitting on a fresh red sauce. It is served with a side of fresh pasta in a light buttery pepper sauce. Yummy!

The food here is incredible! Fresh, innovative and absolutely wonderful. The ambiance is not commensurate with the food. If they add white tablecloths and mature wait staff, this place would be a bargain at triple the price! If you are a family looking for incredible food and want to bring your young kiddos, then this is the perfect spot. I have never had such amazing food in such a casual atmosphere. I love food and so I would be a regular. My wife prefers ambiance over food and so I would need to twist her arm to come back. Its not bad inside, its kind like a low key TGI Fridays. But the food is 5 stars and off the charts! Strange combination: Elegant food options, casual atmosphere.

We thought to go early to avoid the dinner rush, big mistake, thinking we would be surrounded by senior citizens, instead it was 3 tables of noisy toddlers with parents able to tune out the chaos. Later is better for sure, although the food was excellent, hangar steak is always consistently the best meat & potato entree, unless your craving the monster 24 oz ribeye.

I live nearby and go here occasionally. Met up with a friend here early Friday evening. Our server was attentive throughout our meal, even as the place started getting busy. Food, as always was excellent.
The reason for a 4 star, rather than a 5 star review, is that both my friend and I felt rushed out, after we had completed our meal. While it was busy, we noted as we left that there were plenty of empty tables.
