This out of the tourist path Italian restaurant always is able to serve tasty dishes hot out of the kitchen. In an unassuming former Pizza Hut building the staff provides great and dependable food.

Judging by some of the other reviews, it looks like it can be a hit or miss experience. About 90%+ of the times we have been there, it is a good experience. The food has always been very good, but it's the service staff that is the questionable part. They must be training the young people who work there because we had to wait a long time to order and to receive the check. As for food, the last time we were there the kids had pizzas and pastas and enjoyed them. The adults had lasagne, pasta and salad and all were delicious. Although there are a few other Italian-type places we go to in Santa Fe, this one does seem to have a slight edge on quality of food...and others must agree because the last visit was about a 45 minute wait to get in.

Excellent family restaurant. Prompt pleasant service even when every table was full. At 7pm we had to wait ten minutes for a table. Food was fine, delicious. Portions are enormous,. Dinner with a drink and tip came to $24 each.

Well, what a surprise. A very broad menu, prompt service and food which arrived quickly and hot. Not the most luxurious restaurant, looks to be in a former fast food setting. But the place was packed with locals all of whom seemed to be thoroughly enjoying their meals.

The entire waitstaff stared at us when we walked in, and it still took a good 10 minutes or so to even give a drink order. Right when I was ready to walk out, our waitress showed up. The calamari was boring ans the chicken tasted like fish (terrifying). After a nice bus girl (who helped us way more than our disappearing waitress) took our plates, we waited another 10 minutes before the bus girl finally got our check for us from our server. We left cash on the table and got out of there. What a miserable experience and a waste of time and money.
