M’Tucci Italian was the perfect place to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Four of our party of six enjoyed the prix fixe menu which was said to be very tasty. A pizza, my husband’s favorite in Albuquerque, was enjoyed by him. My salmon with cacio e pepe was perfect, as always. Although the restaurant was crowded our server was attentive and charming. A very good evening was had by all at our table and we look forward to our next time at there.

We sat outdoors which was quite chilly. Heat lamps would be a good idea for Covid winter dining

Everything was truly amazing and it beat every expectation I had. The table side pasta was not only tasty, but it was a wonderful experience. Will be returning!

Been to the various location multiple times now. M'tucci's is always excellent. Food and service always top notch. Menu is a little different at each location, which only adds to experience.

Disappointed in the food quality. The highly touted twist on Eggs Benedict was disappointing. The fried eggplant did nothing to enhance the overall final entree. The hollandaise had no flavor and was to thin. The only real flavor was the Italian ham. The Italian has was good, again the eggs then were over cooked. The knochi was terribly disappointing. The senior ordering this is an Italian from New Jersey. She was very disappointed. The spaghetti and meatballs fir the teenager was up to standard. The mimosa tray was beautifully presented. Moria, our waitress was delightful and very efficient. Overall it just felt like the kitchen was not the A team. As to recommending to friends, the jury is out on that question.

It took fifteen minutes for anyone to come talk to us which didn’t start us on the right foot but the service got better. It was really noisy and hard to hear each other. Once we had food and drinks the evening was lovely.

Three of us ordered the Farro & Beet salad. There was not a Farro in sight. The other ingredients varied between the three plates. Some had a lot of candied pecans but the roasted red onions and golden beets were sparse on different plates. At the end of the meal it took a while to get our checks

Only one glitch. Late in the am I tried to add 2 to our reservation in the notes section but didn’t get a response. A bit after 2 pm I called, said we had a reservation (which they found) and wanted to add 2 to make 7. I was told they could not accommodate the additional people. But shortly before 4, I got an email telling me the reservation was now for 7. Unfortunately, our friends had made other arrangements and so it was just the 5.

Service was great and the food was EXCELLENT. I liked the ability to pay on my phone. Thanks!

After always going with the famous Hanger steak, with my favorite oven-roasted salt-water potatoes, I tried the 16oz. NY strip. I will return to the Hanger steak, it consistently has the best flavor. I like that M'Tucci's Italian doesn't fry the potatoes, which one of the other locations does. Service was great as usually, very engaging chatty server. The weekend special with roasted ham and sweet potatoes was phenomenal and hope it ends up as an appetizer in the future. The Corvina was flaky and juicy, cooked to perfection. We didn't have room for dessert.

We were visiting Albuquerque for a half marathon weekend. We made a reservation on Open table and arrived early and was able to get seated right away. I ordered their special ravioli which was amazing. The soups were great. The wine was poured very small, had to be only 4-5 ozs. That was my only complaint, besides the wait for our bill.

I love their house salad! Black and green olives, pickled onions, and Parmesan vinaigrette—so simple but delicious. Ate outside on the patio. Bacon and meatball pizza was great as was the pasta. Service was very good too despite us being the only guests on the patio. Definitely would return—great food and good prices.

The food and wine, as always, were terrific. Our table was not the best as we were kind of jammed in a corner. The server was attentive and patient. The other couple arrived late and we spent a long time catching up before ordering. It was sweltering hot in the dining room at 8 p.m. in early October and the place was very loud.
This was the first time my wife and I dined out since the pandemic and is was a very satisfactory meal and experience. We'll be back for sure!

M'tucci's never fails me. Every meal I have there is delicious, the service is great, the ambiance is lovely and the menus is excellent. No better way than to have an intimate meal with a husband, a get-together with an old friend, or sharing a meal with some great neighbors. M'tucci's will also be our go-to restaurant.

3 out of 4 of us had very good food. The fourth had an excellent soup but the pork chop he ordered was an absolutely inedible tough piece of meat. He tried to complain, but the wait staff was overwhelmed by the high school students’ home-coming dinner. His displeasure was reflected in his tip.

Not knowing anything about the restaurant except these great reviews, we went. I'd become a little tired of Mexican food on this vacation in New Mexico, so I wanted to try something different. Wow! What a find! My husband had the sausage polenta, and I had the mushroom pasta, and both were outstanding. We were so happy with this find! I couldn't believe how full the restaurant was at 5:30; locals know it's so good they have to get in early. As we left, other patrons were singing the restaurant's praises, too.

We made a last minute reservation for an early dinner (6:30) on a Thursday night. First time at this restaurant. The restaurant is casual decor — inviting, bright and clean. There is a full bar, and they were offering a special to benefit a charity the night we were there. They also have some unique drinks, and I ordered a pineapple rosemary shrub. It was great, and you should try a shrub when you visit! We had one of the boards for an appetizer and the meat, cheese, roasted olives, and jam were the perfect start. My husband ordered the ravioli of the day and I ordered ham & peas. Both pastas were perfectly cooked with flavorful sauces. We had a side of spinach and it was cooked in olive oil & fresh garlic. Dessert followed, and I was too full for more than a bite but the semi-freddo was fresh and fruity and a nice ending to a great meal. We will be back for sure!

We asked to sit outside because it was so noisy inside. They happily accommodated us, even though no one was assigned to serve outside. The service was great, and the food was incredibly delicious!

Hanger steak was awesome! Worth the wait! Only negative Food took 45 min which seemed long, and the waiter said the food was 5 mins away, but it was 25 mins later that we got our dinner
