This historic building now houses what should become an historically good restaurant. The service was really great and the food is to DIE for - if I had to have a last meal, the short rib and pasta dish would be it. Thanks you guys, wish you were here.

Evening meals don't begin until 5PM, but as we were traveling through and wanted to try their restaurant, they offered us a "limited" menu at 4 PM. It was pretty much anything on the evening menu. We chose to sit on the patio and the ambiance added to the overall delightful experience. The wait staff were all very attentive and the food was wonderful. I chose the arugula salad and portabello rockets and ate every bite--too good to leave even a little. My friends all raved over their dinners as well. We were glad they offered to seat us early as this is a very popular Italian restaurant in a small town. It is obviously a hit with the locals as well as others. One couple told me they drive the 35 miles one way every time they want to eat out. The food was great, the prices very reasonable and the staff were wonderful. We thought about planning anohter trip to Las Cruces just to have the chance to eat here again!

Met the owner when we dined. The food was fresh and delicious. It was a very nice atmosphere and close to where we stayed.
