El Paso >Ardovino's Pizza
Great intimate atmosphere.
This was such a treat!! My wife and I came here on a Friday night for a little celebration dinner. Granted, we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, but it was worth the it. The waitresses were very friendly and were able to provide great recommendations for us first-timers. We had the Four Seaons, which was amazing, not to mention very good with a couple glasses of wine. The managers were exceptional and made it a point to see how each table was doing. The waitresses were friendly and were great about letting us enjoy our meal without asking us every 5 minutes if everything is okay.
Overall, this was such a pleasant experience. The food was amazing and there seems to be a lot of regulars.
Avoid at all "costs". The pizza is extremely overpriced for the standard and the wine selection by the glass is non existent. The people working there seem to always be in horror of whoever is managing and are obviously faking their good-natured spirit which gives the customer a bad feeling about the restaurant as soon as you sit down. Unless you want a cheap Frontera house wine which costs ten bucks for the bottle which they don't allow you to buy for six bucks a glass, then you are in the wrong place. The restaurant always seems tense with girls, mind you, only girls, with male managers running about knocking into one another. Also the fact that one never knows who their real waitress was since you have about 3 or 5 helping you. Therefore, you don't really know to whom your tip will be given. The restaurant seems quite disorderly and the towels the girls use to clean tables or silverware they pick up from the floor after cleaning it as well. I would also question how old many of the girls serving the alcohol were since many seemed at least 16 or 17. All in all, I had quite a terrible eating experience at the pizza place, but it would seem ascetically appealing at first to many. I would suggest instead of paying high prices for cheap food and cheap wine, one should definitely go to a higher standard restaurant for the same price.
Best Pizza in Town!. If you like pizza then Ardovino's is a must. It has by far some of the best Pizza I have eaten in a long time. A group of friends visiting El Paso stumbled upon the restaurant one night and we all agreed the pizza was great. We have been back everytime we are in El Paso. There is a great wine selection and other economical choices on the menu besides pizza. The atmosphere is very warm and the wait staff is very friendly.
