Excellent fried calamari, some of the best I've ever had. Very tender, fresh and the breading was light and flaky. The pasta dishes were all good just not spectacular. The cannoli was delicious. I could hear the manger scolding a bus boy on several occasions. That was not cool.

We found Amarsi this past Spring. Love the pasta dishes as well as the wonderful veal. Pizza was incredible---just like back East. We would also recommend their homemade desserts. Wonderful find run locally.

We had a party of 14 staying at the Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain and wanted a break from in-house dining. What a find in Amarsi!! Many times, a large group can throw a restaurant into a frazzled state, but here is where Amarsi excelled. Mind you, the business group of my colleagues that came have travelled the world, and everyone... More

We enjoy every visit to this restaurant more than the last one. The service is superb, the ambiance extremely comfortable, and the food "is to die for"! They have a wonderful wine list along with some very good special wines at attractive prices. We had a special dinner for seven of our friends a couple of months ago. The owner... More

I've lived in Tucson for more than several decades and I must say that Amarsi is the best Italian restaurant I've had the pleasure eating at. Having sampled most of the fare on their menu I know that everything is wonderful. My wife and I eat there several times a month.

In a shopping center in Oro Valley, this fine restaurant will dazzle you with their selections. As a native New Yorker I was genuinely surprised by the food. Service is outstanding and the owner is a joy. Ask and you shall receive. Monthly theme dinners are a highlight. Make the trip whenever you visit the area. Great happy hour bar... More

Dining at Amarsi is a delightful and relaxing experience and the food is high quality with wonderful flavors, excellent wine choices and the owner happily will alter a recipe for those with special dietary needs. Our sons visit from Sacramento and Seattle, and each have dinner at Amarsi on their list of must-do's while in town. Chicken Parmesan is outstanding,... More

We're from NY but have been living in Tucson for several years. Service and atmosphnere delightful, and the food is the best we've had out here. Since we've discovered Ararsi it has become our favorite restaurant. We drive all the way up from central Tucson, but the dining experience is well worth the trip every time!

Amarsi is our favorite restaurant! We eat there often (4 + times a month) and the food is consistently EXCELLENT. Thomas is our favorite server. This week we had a party at Amarsi for 100+ guests and have had nothing but rave reviews from our guests. The owner is very easy to work with and does her best to please... More

I was with Deb M for dinner on the night in question. I can confirm that wait staff was very unprofessional and demeaning towards us. I saw the response from the waiter that he was trying to be funny but, it was not funny. I have been an Oro Valley resident for over 27 years and try to support the... More
