I went back to Nicky V's Pizzeria and Patio last night, so I thought I'd drop by to update my old post about the best pizza place in Northwest Albuquerque. Actually, calling it a pizza place doesn't do it justice because there are many delightful menu choices which are both creative and delicious.
Last night we had some old favorite appetizers, plus we tried a new pizza, the Milan. The Milan has Gorgonzola and Fontina cheeses, mushrooms, carmelized onions and pine nuts. Sounds a little different at first I know, but once I picked up a piece it was love at first bite!
If you live in NW Albuquerque and you think life is too short to eat plain old boring pizza, please stop by and give Nicky V's a try (this would be a great place to eat during balloon fiesta).
Tonight I discovered a new restaurant in NW Albuquerque, Nicky V's Neighborhood Pizzeria and Patio. Actually, I learned about it from an office mate and fellow AR contributor Valerie Almanzar who checked in there last week on Foursquare, but I finally decided to check it out for myself.
There have been two other pizza restaurants in this location over the last two or three years, both were called NYPD, but neither one lasted more than 12 months before they closed their doors.
I loved the first place, NYPD, that served NY style pizza. They had Sinatra gangster photos on the walls and they cranked out Frank's classics. The pizza was OK, just a notch above Dominos.
However, the newest incarnation of a NW Albuquerque pizza restaurant at this location is Nicky V's, and it's way better than your typical pizza joint!
It was a beautiful New Mexico late summer night, so my wife and I sat outside on the patio.
We love to sample things so we started out with several appetizers including pita points and hummus. The hummus included an incredibly delicious cucumber relish on the side and some feta cheese.
Then we moved on to anti pasto with peppers, arugula, salami and baby mozarrella, which was fantastic and followed up with beers from Albuquerque's Marble Brewery (always a New Mexico favorite). Somewhere along the way we also had the Fried Ravioli which was fabulous!
We were already getting full, but we had to at least have a few bites of pizza, but before we ordered I wanted to see if they had a real pizza oven.
Not only did they have a real pizza oven, but it's a cool looking big brick oven.
I asked the guys if they knew how to toss the dough or not and they gave me a quick demonstration:
Besides great appetizers and excellent pizza Nicky V's has some great looking salads and a bar as well.
