This is our go-to place when we want excellent food, good service and a neighborhood feel. We have never been disappointed and this night followed the pattern set previously. Our waitress, though new, was attentive and confident. Our food came quickly as well as our beverages. Everything tasted amazing. We will be back!

We were 5 for dinner at 6 PM. This place is noisy when there are lots of folks at the tables and bar.
The food and service is good no complaints. Just hard to hear the waiter and conversation.
My biggest complaint is they charge for bread. In an Italian Restaurant they charge for bread. Really! If they gave one slice for free then charged extra ok I can buy that one. $3.00 for a few slices with a little olive oil. NO Way!

Dinner at M'Tucci's Italian was a mixed bag.... The food was very good, arrived at our table hot, and as ordered. Unfortunately, service was less than outstanding - each time our server came to our table, we felt rushed - as though we were "inconveniencing" her. Items were sort of "dropped off" and then she dashed away. If the restaurant had been packed, we might have understood, but 1/3-to-1/2 of the restaurant was empty. In addition, it was really cold!! I would go back again to see if this experience was just a fluke, but I would be sure to take a jacket.

Everyone at the table was pleased with what they ordered. Our server made a suggestion that I would not have considered and I found it very good. It's unfortunate that one needs to pay for the home-baked bread, but otherwise, the prices seemed fair. Service was excellent (though perhaps too attentive, which is a lot better than nowhere to be found).

I had heard about M'tucci's but never visited as it's not convenient to my home. But I'm so glad I decided to have dinner there last weekend with out-of-town company. It specializes in Italian, but the menu is diverse. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers, meals and dessert. Service was excellent, too, even on a busy Saturday night. We will be back.

M'tucci's is our new favorite Italian restaurant in NM! They have delicious, high-quality food and attentive service. I've been several times and loved everything I've tried. The shrub cocktails are some of the best drinks I've ever had. The servers are knowledgeable and patient with questions. The overall ambiance/decor is lacking but the wonderful food makes up for that. The prices are extremely reasonable. This restaurant is definitely a hidden gem.

How this is one of the top restaurants on OpenTable for Albuquerque is beyond me. The restaurant is not terrible, but it is truly not much beyond an Italian chain-style restaurant. The restaurant is located in a strip mall, the walls are decorated with tacky tchotchkes and classic rock blasts fairly loudly through the speakers. The wine list is small and unimpressive. The food is very standard Italian fare, though not bad. The service was very good and quite fast. Our meal was barely an hour. All that is to say, if you prefer a local Italian meal basically on par with one of the big Italian chains, this fits the bill. Our meal was not expensive.
My wife and I experienced M'Tucci's for the first time and we definitely will put it on our dinner circuit. We had an appetizer, two different types of salads, a fish dish and a pasta dish. The polenta appetizer was light and tasty, her Kale salad was delicious as well as my Caesar salad. Her fish of the day dish fillet was cooked perfectly - flaky and not overdone. My pork and pasta dish was great as the sauce was thick and tasty. We will be back to try other entrees.
Great place if you like eating at WalMart
Good food, selection, good variety of drinks. The ambiance was a bit loud. Did not appreciate being carded. I only stayed because a friend recommended the food, but I will not return.
Best Bolognese next to my own!
Haven't been to M'Tucci's for a while and went on a Wednesday night. The food is very good and the Bolognese is the best I've found (next to my own recipe!). The eggplant parm that another member of our group ordered is her favorite in town. The portions are plentiful - all 3 of us took food home for a next day left over treat. Since we had to pay for the bread tray, we took the leftovers of that home as well!
We find the décor to be overdone and confusing - what is the theme you are going for? There's too much of it! And you can't possibly keep it all clean?

Just great food! Excellent service. We booked our next visit before we left. Both the potatoe and tuscan soups were delicious. Watch out for the caramel ice cream, it is evil, it makes you eat all of it and seriously consider ordering seconds.
Really good food!
Some Italian friends took us here recently. It is now one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Everything we ordered was really good! The waiter was very professional and helpful in helping us to decide what to order. The mussels were huge and delicious. The fish specials were divine. The house wine was good and very reasonably priced...unlike other restaurants where a few glasses of wine can be way more than an entree. The owner came around and talked with us. As we understand it, he used to own restaurants in Manhattan. We will definitely be back!
Not as good as reported
We had reservation but why because we were seated at worst table in the place!service was great but food was not the best for the price. Dinner menu on open table did not match menu at restaurant .we will not drive 40 miles to go here again.
We ate at the main restaurant but upon closer inspection we liked the deli next door better - it was more authentic . The advertising was a little unclear what restaurant was being featured. We sat next to a guy on his cell phone talking way too loud so that set me in a bad mood. Food was good, nothing outstanding that any good Italian neighborhood place would serve. Lots of families , lots of energy. Nothing special about the the service - good but not memorable. It was o.k. and would warrant a return on a weeknight. The deli - with the same or similar name - was unique. Home made everything = bread, sausages, canolies, etc - old school atmosphere staffed with real 'foodies' who clearly loved what they do.
Our Go-to Place
Having recently moved to the west side, we found this place by accident. We are so glad we did! The wait staff is phenomenal; personable and attentive. The food is quite good, arrives in good time and is served hot. The cocktail list is refreshing and unique. If you want a table, be sure to make reservations!
Valentine's Day Dinner with family
Daughter has salmon with polenta which she really liked, grandson had spagehtti with meat balls which he said was good, and I had the mixed seafood with risotto which was quite good but I thought it could have been served hotter. The service was excellent and very prompt. This is a ala carte menu but I was disappointed that there is an additional charge of $3 for six slices of bread and when my daughter asked if she could have risotto in place of polenta that was going to be $5 additional. So this is a mixture of good words about the good quality food and sevice, but not so good about the prices which I think are kind of high for what I think is a neighborhood restaurant.
