One of Albuquerque's few, truly remarkable local restaurants. The food and service are always excellent. Always in our top five places to consider going for an enjoyable meal with friends.

Our server was attentive and prompt, she went extra lengths to ask the kitchen about ingredients too. The food is always very, very good! The newer items are enticing and well prepared. M'tucci's is our favorite restaurant for Italian cuisine!

My girlfriends 33rd birthday also happens to be New Year's Eve! Choosing a restaurant on New Years is difficult because you must plan ahead. I knew for sure that their food is always on point for an extraordinary dining experience! Our waiter went above and beyond to meet our needs, as well as let us ask as many questions as we needed about the dinner choices! Which was exceptional! Lamb shanks, pasta dishes, thick pork chops, steaks, a variety of fish dishes.... I ordered the scallop risotto, which was out of this world! The ambiance was perfect. Mctuccis RULES!

We celebrated my mom’s birthday here, after having changed our reservation from Seasons. I cannot express how lovely our dinner experience was. The service was amazing, the atmosphere was both quaint and unique and the food was memorable. We definitely will have this as one of our top 5 special occasion locations moving forward.

We had dinner with my oldest son and daughter-in-law while they were in town for the holidays. Dinner was terrific on all counts. Our waiter was new to M’Tucci’s but he was an excellent waiter. We had a lovely evening!

This is my new favorite dining establishment! Who else in the Q has oxtail?! And it was delicious. Lightest, creamiest polenta to be had. Friendly staff. And a sparkler for special occasions! You can't beat this place. Kudos to M'Tucci's for a delightful evening!

Love M'Tucci's! Went there for my daughter's birthday(her favorite restaurant). They sat us right by the front door when the restaurant was still almost empty. My husband's hanger steak was fabulous. They were very accommodating to my dietary restrictions of no dairy or gluten. Only complaint is the pasta they made for me special needed more flavor-like spices. It was blah tasting. Kudos for trying! Will order the hanger steak next time.

Second time we have had brunch and it was just as good as first time!
Great entrees, excellent mimosas and efficient service.
Can be noisy for dinner but we had 11 am reservations and there were only a few occupied tables. Music was good but a tad loud.
Highly recommend for brunch and dinner too; we have had dinner several times and always great.

We went here while in Albuquerque visiting friends and were so surprised at how good the food was! After all, it's Italian in New Mexico. But it was wonderful. Two of us had the scallops(sweet and succulent) and the Grigliata Mista, both superb and a wonderful combination. The potato leek soup is to die for. Pastas do not disappoint.

The food was good and each ate was interesting. This place gets crowded during regular dinner hours so a late lunch is a perfect time to enjoy eating here. I was impressed by the birthday dessert offering which included a sparkler candle. The Italian Twinkie is worth trying. Lots of fun. I do prefer the menu at the M’Tuccis in Rio Rancho and wish they had the same options.

Each time we introduce friends to this establishment, they are amazed at the delicious quality of the food, the delightful atmosphere, and the friendliness of the staff. This is hands down the best restaurant in all of New Mexico. We only have three favorites and this one is by far at the top. The best appetizers are the Fried Brie and the Bruschetta. The best dessert is the Twinkie D'Italia, even if you are not a dessert fan, have one, it will change your reality surrounding desserts. Anyone who likes Italian will fall instantly in love with M'Tucci's. It is the best Italian outside of Italy.

My ister was in town and I wanted to take her to dinner where I knew she would have different options than what she has in her small Florida town.
We had a great dinner... like we always do! I tried the Oxtails for the first time, and it will now be even harder to decide what to order the next time I'm here. They were melf-in-your-mouth delicious. So darn flavorful. The polenta is the perfect carb for oxtails.
My sister had the spaghetti & shrimp dish and loved it ( I loved the leftovers the next day!)
As usual, the ONLY thing I wish Kate & Jeff (owners) would offer is a few pieces of bread at the table- by request is fine, rather than just plopping a basket down.
Always a great meal!

The food was "alright", nothing special. The decor of the place is quite weird. It looks like a cross between a circus and a garage. The server was quite pleasant and attentive. Marketing itself as an Italian restaurant is misleading. It may be a Mexican/Italian place.

I arrived on time and ordered an appetizer with my wife. My family party of 4 was soon to arrive. The very tall, owner's son was his usual busy self patrolling the room, very unnerving. The restaurant was not particularly busy at the time. I guess to arrive approximately 12 minutes later. At that point the owner's son approached with our waitress and let us know we were late, He requested that, if we could speed up our order, eat fast and leave. Because he said his is expecting a busy night and Our time there could interrupt the next guest. This was very weird. I did not see him do this with any other guest. By the time we finished and paid for are food, the restaurant was just starting to get busy. I saw no one waiting for our table. I did not get a apology. I recall after he left the table he could only glare at me and our table.

Undoing was not very hungry on this visit to M'Tucci's. Fortunately, I had a lovely house sale (love the olives, pickled onion and wonderful dressing) and a healthy serving of their hearty Tuscan White Bean soup. It was delicious and just the right amount of food. Our server Colton was good and attentive, bringing things he knew we needed without having to ask. The only negative was the live music - too loud! We could hardly hear each other across the table., and were happy when the musician went on break.
