One of the best Italian resturants for seafood in Albuquerque. The Calamari appetizer was cooked to perfection. The Chicken Involiti was to die for.

The spinach lasagna was melt in your mouth delicious and service was accommodating and patient as we tried to choose from so many options. Be prepared for large serving sizes!! And take it home! Now a favorite choice.

Staff were friendly. Restaurant was clean. Food was delicious. Ravioli was large and had a lot of filling. Bellini was delicious! A little pricey but well worth it.

They do have gluten free pasta options. Like most gluten free pasta, it is just okay. There are other menu items that are pasta and gluten free.
