Opened in December in the space most recently occupied by Galisteo Bistro, Trattoria A Mano has transformed the long, narrow, high-ceilinged room into a lively gathering spot for good food, good drink, and good company. The decor is eclectic, combining iron window grilles, oversized photos of ’50s Italian haute couture and hands kneading dough, a w...

No matter where you go in the world, there is Italian food. From the streets of New York to the jungles of Bali, you can always follow your nose and find a sometimes terrible, often halfway decent bowl of pasta to sate you.

Although...

Piccolino is the Santa Fe exception: a family-owned, family-oriented and seriously local place that doesn’t serve New Mexican food. It’s all Italian all the time here.
