Italian
Our mission is to open a few restaurants that take care of our guests in every way-treating them like guests in our home, making sure that they feel embraced by the joy with which we extend our hospitality, and making sure that they become entranced by our restaurant. We understand the value of 'regulars' returning weekly and in many cases more frequently. We hope that all of our guests will feel that they belong to a private club, to which we welcome them again and again. M'tucci's Moderno located in Rio Rancho is a sister of our first restaurant, M'tucci's Italian, which is located at Coors and Montano on Albuquerque's West Side. At Moderno, we continue to offer a moderately priced, Italian menu built on a foundation of both traditional and contemporary recipes. The menu, together with the bar (full liquor license) menu, is offered in a contemporary building with black steel elements, high ceilings, and a big garage door that opens to the Sandia Mountains. Inside the steel, we have inserted a more traditional looking wood clad restaurant featuring traditional lighting and Edison bulbs, as well as other playful elements. Our congenial bar and mezzanine offer alternative spaces within which to enjoy M'tucci's food and beverage. Moderno's bar program features our unique shrubs as well as a new collection of original cocktails to complement our food and wine. Our mezzanine can also be reserved for private groups. M'tucci's Moderno is located just west of Presbyterian's Rust Medical Center. At the end of 2016, Jeff Spiegel, Katie Gardner, and John Haas, founders of M'tucci's Restaurants, welcomed five new partners to their ownership team: Austin Leard, Sherri Rivenburgh, Cory Gray, Shawn Cronin and Chris O'Sickey. This ensures that M'tucci's Restaurants are here for the long haul.

    Anthony our server was initially stretched working the dining area alone. We had been there about 1 hour when other staff were assigned tot the dining room. Despite being alone he did a wonderful job of attending to our needs. The food as usual was outstanding, but the overall dining experience was degraded by the presence of a number of flies. Why hasn't a fan been installed over the front door as we have experienced at other restaurants to provide a blast of air when the door opens? It's a great fly deterrent. We will be sitting at the bar on future visits as we haven't experienced the fly problem in that part of the restaurant.

    Always a good experience here! However, we were sat way in the back near bathroom (IMO - the worst table in restaurant). We had reservations and it wasn’t overly busy. I’d think when making reservations, seating location would be better.

    The food and service were very good, but we had at least 6 flies constantly buzzing around our table upstairs inside the restaurant. Other than that everything was great!

    We had the fish special and it was fantastic! Our waiter was Anthony. He is the best waiter I’ve experienced in a long time. He was attentive, accommodating and very friendly. I highly recommend M’tucci’s and Anthony.

    Very noisy. Could hardly have a conversation with the 4 people at our table. Two meals were good, two not as good. We went to this location because they had chicken marsala on the menu. Unfortunately it was too dry... chicken was dry, and sauce was lacking. Service was excellent. Probably won't return to this location.
