Pizza is almost always a great value. It's filling and often well-priced. Il Vicino, part of a small local chain, started in Albuquerque's Nob Hill in 1992. They specialize in wood-fired pizza. You can get an individual-sized by (the only size they offer) for as little as $7.75; most don't exceed $10. Choices run from the classic Margarita (cheese and fresh basil) to the more exotic Angeli featuring sweet balsamic marinara sauce, mozzarella, roasted chicken, portobello mushrooms, artichoke hearts, gorgonzola and fresh rosemary. There are a lot of choices in between. One of the best deals here is the Insalata della Casa (house salad), romaine topped with tomatoes, asiago and the house vinaigrette. Go wild and add gorgonzola cheese for a dollar. If you each order a pizza, it's big enough for two to share. There are other offerings but stick with the pizza.

- Best Value: "The location, just down the street from the Lensic Performing Arts Center, makes it a great choice for a quick before concert meal. When you order your pizza, ask them to make sure the crust is crispy if you like it that way."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: This order-at-the-counter casual pizza joint is great for a well-priced, casual dinner at a convenient downtown location.
