Il Vicino has been crafting quality wood-fired pizza for the people of Albuquerque since 1991. Founders Greg Atkin and Rick Post have been immersed in the food industry from their youth, starting off as servers, moving on to chefs, then managers, and then finally, the proud owners of the chain of Il Vicino establishments. The pies that Il Vicino offers are a cut above your regular pizza pie- featuring authentic Italian semolina wheat, carefully assembled into a dough that’s fired to perfection using a hand-picked selection of dry wood for maximum crispiness and flavor. Even their basest option, the humble Margherita, features only the highest quality fresh mozzarella cheese and tangy California valley tomato sauce. Gourmet pizza toppings offered here include goat cheese, fiery shrimp, and slow-roasted chicken. If you’re ready to take your love for pizza to the next level, Il Vicino’s is the place to be.
