    We sat outside, no ambiance, it was windy. The service was good but the salads and main dish were overpriced. When I made the reservation, I was asked if we were celebrating anything special. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary. No mention of that at all. We are locals and when we celebrate special occasions we are offered a little something extra. This was our 3rd visit and we were disappointed sorry to say

Those selections can be made when booking your reservation. If there was an issue with your food or service I would certainly welcome more information and would love to hear from you. You can respond here or call the restaurant anytime at 505-982-6734. Thank you and take care Evan Schultz (General Manager)

    If you're looking for outstanding creative Italian fare with outstanding service, look no further. If you're looking to spend less than $100 a person, maybe not this place. The chef is amazing. Sean, who was my waiter, had amazing recommendations, professional, the right level of attentive, and friendly. He was very familiar with every aspect of the menu.

    My husband and I had a lovely dinner in the bar at one of the high tops. The bartender was prompt, knowledgeable and quite personable. My husband had a cocktail called the Sophia Loren, it was delicious. I had the Saltambucco and my husband had the Seabass. Both were beautifully presented and very tasty. We will definitely be going back

    The service was excellent. Our server was very nice, very attentive and knew the menu well. The food was OK, a little pricey for the quality and the ambience was OK, but not to the standard of the price. All in all, it was a good experience.

    First off, I’ve loved sasella for years. Last night I brought 4 adult children for a special evening. We ordered a cocktail an appetizer our main course and a bottle of wine. The cocktails came, our appetizers came, our main course came and then Our waiter disappeared. When we’re deep into the delicious main course I waived the manager over to let him know we didn’t get our wine yet. Ten minutes later the waiter shows up with the wine as I take my last bite of ravioli. I explain we no longer want the wine. Rather than simply apologize she starts telling me that it was a misunderstanding. I said no it wasn’t. It was a mistake. We ordered a couple desserts and coffee. She came out and told us they were comped. But then continued to justify why she didn’t serve our wine before or even with our meal. The food is great there. The ambiance is very nice. But after $500 on dinner with no wine I don’t appreciate having to listen to waitersplaining about my having a misunderstanding

    Beautiful small restaurant, quiet, and great ambience. Food is top notch. A 36 hour veal shank, bolonese to die for. Food presentation was terrific. I highly recommend this restaurant.
