After walking by this place for years we started going in about 18 months ago and have yet to have anything but wonderful food and wonderful service. We will keep coming back to Amarsi as our Go To place in Oro Valley. Everything was great, but the Pizza is truly extraordinary and who doesn't Love a place where the people... More

We dined at Amarsi's with two other members of our family and enjoyed wonderful Italian quisine as well as excellent service. Whether is was lamb sausage, sauteed salmon, lobster ravioli or the trout special, it was all perfectly prepared and presented. Desserts included tiramisu, spimone, canelone (sp?) and the special of the day. They were delicious and the portions were... More

We dined at this Italian restaurant 3 times a couple years ago while it appeared they were struggling with start-up issues. A Group-on offer enticed us to return and we were glad we did. it was a Tuesday evening, so the crowd was light. The owner/manager greeted us warmly and sat us at a lovely table near the window. We... More

Excellent Italian restaurant with a diverse menu. Service was excellent and each course was prepared very well. Creme Brûlée was among the best I have ever had.Would not miss this restaurant if visiting the area again.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Tucson area. Not only is the food great, but the staff treats you like family when you are there. They have special dinners once a month that celebrate the cuisine of other countries that are simply superb! Daily specials are always well prepared and food is plentiful. We love Amarsi

My wife and I dined here on Saturday night, had not been here in a long time, think I remember why now. We started with a salad that was good tasting but light on Gargonzola, walnuts and roasted peppers, lots of Argula. My wife had the calamari which seemed like it was in the freezer to long. Breading falling off... More

The wait for an Italian restaurant in our area was worth it. The food is excellent, personnel are wonderful and cheerful. A good selection of wine is of benefit too. Hard to find superlatives for their pizza.

We enjoyed the restaurant. The portions of the lasagna(about 2 lbs) and the cioppino were large. The drinks were good and the prices were excellent. Our server was very good. All around good family owned restaurant.

Once was enough. They said they don't use canola, the crappiest oil on the market. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400093/Choosing-Canola-Oil.html On the phone they said they used olive oil. But when you get there, it's a blend of canola oil. So the menu shrank substantially. I ordered the Caprese....essentially tomato slices with home made mozzarella - balsamic vinegar and "extra virgin olive oil." It... More
