Si Italian Bistro & Bakery is a family run restaurant in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Si Italian Bistro & Bakery is a fun and friendly place that serves great Italian food as well as some great American food.  Situated in an old two story mansion, it’s the kind of place that is casual enough for Monday night pizza with the family and special enough for a romantic night out.
       At Si Italian Bistro & Bakery we follow the Italian tradition of using the freshest, high quality ingredients available.  We believe using fresh ingredients and doing things from scratch makes a big difference in how food tastes.  We start preparing food early in the morning.  All day long we are simmering sauces, cutting fresh vegetables, baking fresh bread, and preparing homemade desserts.  We make pizza dough everyday and our pizza oven is a big source of pride for Chef Hixon.  Our pizza oven was shipped from Italy to California and then brought home to New Mexico. With a little help and a lot of love the oven was one of the first things to be built when we moved into our building.  We are very proud of our pizza and we serve it at both lunch and dinner.  

Our lunch menu offers a wide variety of choices including sandwiches served on freshly baked bread.  Chef Hixon makes his own Italian sausage and it makes a great sandwich.  On the lighter side, we have delicious salads;  the Italian Chef salad and the Insalata di Noci (made with fresh lettuce, walnuts, blue cheese and apples) are just two favorites.  A selection of pasta dishes such as Chicken Piccatta, Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti and Meatballs and Lasagna are also available at lunch.  Another favorite at lunch has to be our amazing half pound hamburgers and hand cut fries.  We grind the beef ourselves for our burgers and our meatballs and it really makes a difference in freshness and flavor. 

Everyday Marybeth makes two choices of homemade soup.  Minestrone is available everyday and other popular soups are Italian Wedding, Pumpkin, and Lemon Artichoke.
