Very disappointed considering what we had heard. The special which I ordered was very good but the other special for the price was poor at best. The pork chops were more fat than anything and a poor selection for a restaurant of this caliber. I know that the couple seated next to us also was not satisfied with their food as well. Will not return anytime soon.

Would love to provide a private review. Based upon the poor quality of our meals; you really don’t seem to care about the survival of your restaurant. The last 3 times I’ve eaten there I’ve told myself never again but when my brother wanted to go for his birthday this week, we went hoping things had gotten better. We have family chefs and know food. I wish you luck.

Something is different. Food was fair. It used to be very good here. Menu selections were lacking too. Only three choices that were not pasta - duck, chicken and clams. The special was "sold out". It was Friday night at 7 and the place was 1/4 full. How could they be sold out of anything? We've been there several times before. This time was disappointing.

We went because we saw this restaurant featured on the Food Network. It was such a disappointment. The pasta was gummy on one dish and over baked and dried out on another. The meat sauce was uninspired. So sad. I wanted this to be a great experience.

Food was pretty good, but nothing stupendous. My biggest complaint was some of the wait times in between certain parts of the meal. For instance, bread came out with the appetizer I ordered, instead of with our drinks or even after our drinks. Waiting for the check and for my card to be returned took a while as well. After I had paid the waiting took other orders, delivered other tables food instead of just charging me and coming back. Overall good experience just took longer than expected for some of the things.

nice, simple little restaurant. The food was good, the deserts were very good. My two criticisms are: the chicken dish was not available the night we visited. Also, in two dishes, the pasta, which appeared to be homemade, was very thick. The tortellini pasta was just too heavy to enjoy. The server was very professional and attentive to us. We will try them again.

There were four of us. We had mixed feelings. There were only three entrees and no specials. I was delighted there was a Super Tuscan wine by the glass! Yay! Two of us got duck which was good but perhaps not the accompaniment. Desserts were ok. Service okay. So, it was all okay.

We chose this restaurant because I had family visiting and one of my brothers saw the restaurant was featured on Food Network, one of my 86 year old parent’s favorite shows.
The hostess was amazing and pleasant, she was very accommodating to ensure our table was set up in the corner to limit the noise. The server, Britt, was not attentive and condescending. My parents chicken and vegetables were burnt, my lunch entree had a piece of hair under a carrot in the sauce. When I brought it to the server’s attention he stated: "It wasn't from the kitchen the cook didn't have any hair". I told him the hair was not laying on top of the food, it was found after I moved the carrot. Instead of offering any type of assistance he said it must have been MY HAIR. He then asked if I wanted my food, over 3/4 of a meal boxed up and I said no. I was not looking for a free meal, I just wanted them to make it right. Britt offered nothing. He was inattentive and we had to flag him down if we needed anything. I am not sure if that was due to the party size and he was already assured a tip? I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We decided to try Torino's after reading a very favorable review in the Albuquerque Journal. However, we were less than thrilled. We had a 6pm reservation on a Monday evening (6/18) and were seated out in the patio (our choice). It went wrong almost immediately. While the patio was nice, the sun was starting to set and we requested several times to have the folded up umbrellas put up so to block some of the sun and heat. Finally, after the third request, we got the umbrellas put up. We started with one server, he quickly disappeared never to return and then Thomas showed up and he took care of us. He was very good, but seemed ill at ease with what he was doing. It seemed he was "new" to the job. We found out later he didn't wait tables, he worked in the kitchen. We ordered an appetizer of shrimp and calamari, it was very good. Our dinners were porcini ravioli with a side of Italian sausage and the half chicken with fingerling potatoes. Both were excellent. The problem was the food took nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes to arrive! We heard repeatedly "we're slammed in the kitchen." We weren't the only ones who were less than thrilled. I overheard a woman who was with her husband and another couple that 1 hour and 45 minute was ridiculous and the food and service wasn't worth the price. They were from Florida here in New Mexico on vacation. My husband and I drove up from Socorro to spend the day at the Da Vinci Exhibit and wanted to cap off the lovely day with a delightful Italian meal. That was the plan, didn't work out so well. We didn't finish our dinner until almost 9pm when all was said a done.

Saturday evening 5:30PM: they were out of the wine we wanted and that was listed on line as part of their wine list but we were told that someone forgot to reorder it, they were out of the entree we wanted that was just written up in the ABQ Journal that week. Therefore, a bit disappointing.

Torino's is a hidden gem. They make their own pasta and the food is consistently great. This is comfort food with a bistro atmosphere. They could have a more extensive wine list, but that's the only real criticism I can muster. The service is very good, especially for Albuquerque. The patio is great in the evening.

Some of our food (i.e., Italian chicken, salmon with risotto) was wonderful; however, some (i.e., cold, microwaved pasta dish tasty but small turkey sandwich) was not so good. The services was quit poor as our iced tea glasses were only filled once, despite numerous attempts to beg for more, the waitress was argumentative, and the entrees for our group of 7 all came out at different times, over a period of 12 minutes. I would maybe give this establishment one more try so they redeem themselves but I would do so with great trepidation.

Wonderful, tasty, fresh pasta. They even have gluten free fresh pasta. The Porcini Ravioli is out of this world. I LOVE the sauce. Also had the goat cheese salad, which was yummy. My husband is a fabulous gourmet cook, so, I am very selective about dining out. I took him back on our anniversary, and he, too, was impressed. I can’t wait until it is warmer, and we can dine outside in the lovely park-like atmosphere.
