Fodor's Review

Local hipsters outnumber tourists at this casual spot serving mostly modern Italian fare with regional accents. Intelligent and attentive service along with well-presented contemporary Southwestern art make any meal a pleasure. For starters try the signature noodle soup or minestrone with smoked ham before moving on to an oven-roasted duck with seasonal vegetables and creamy mashed potatoes or any of the traditional pasta dishes, such as penne Arrabbiata (with spicy Italian sausage). Superb desserts include a coconut-cream pie and rich strawberry shortcake. Parking is just around the back, off NM 518.
