My husband and I love pizzas, love wine, and love craft beers. This place excels at all 3! The crust can make or break a pizza and they have it mastered here. Wood fired crisp tazty crust with amazing texture, superb marinara sauce and fresh toppings. I ate the whole Pizza by myself and I'm usually a two slice gal.... More

Yes, Il Vicino is a pizzeria of the first order. But having given up eating wheat, I no longer indulge. However, I never feel deprived. This place has enormous, luscious salads with many options of greens, three kinds of tomatoes, raw or sautéed onions and garlic, cheese toppings, meat toppings and velvety dressings I have on the side. Choose your... More

While on our way to the Balloon Fiesta we stopped in to Il Vicino for lunch and were very pleased. Service was stellar, even as a QSR spot and the pizza was tasty and ready in a flash. All members of my party enjoyed their salads, sandwiches and pizza and the place was spotless - even the bathroom. Keep up... More

Visited the Nob Hill location while on a recent trip to Albuquerque. Food and service were very good. The servers work as a team to provide for customers. Many times this arrangement is rather slip shod, but not here. Everything was delivered hot or cold as the cvase may be. The pizza was fired in the wood oven and was... More

We were visiting Albuquerque for the first time and stumbled across this amazing pizza place. Great drinks, great salads, awesome wood-fired pizza. We were blown away!

We visited at 9:30 on a Tuesday evening. It was our first visit to the Il Vicino restaurant group. You order at the door then your meal is brought to you. The house salad with added goat cheese was perfectly dressed and perfect for splitting. The infused olive oil at each table is tasty and definitely spicy. We split the... More

The pizza bases were much more 'bready' than as a European I am used to. The toppings were adequate. The staff was friendly and service reasonably quick. A plus is that prices are extremely reasonable.

This is a small Italian restaurant on a popular strip. You order and pay when you walk in. The waiter then brings your drinks and delivers your food when it is ready. While that may sound like cafeteria style, it actually works quite well. I ordered the Margherita Pizza for $7.50. At that price I thought it was a personal... More

Positive thing: they have a brick oven. Crust was cooked the correct amount of time but I personally didn't like the taste of it. Same for the mozzarella...a better mozzarella would have changed completely my opinion. Overall pizza was good but there's area for improvement. Nice that they have spicy/hot oil on each table. Place was nice and relaxed.
