Nonna Vivi - True Italian Food!

A small, cozy restaurant in a strip mall (near Nickel's Diner) with a small outdoor seating area in the front of the restaurant. Wonderful, caring, friendly service - we had the Caprese - simply delicious - and a super-thin crust pizza that was to die for!

Simple, pleasant ambiance. Good food, good service. But it is the lunch special that is really something to talk about. Salad, pizza and drink for $8.00--I could eat lunch at Nonna Vivi's several times a week!!

Dinner at Nonna Vivi Wood Oven Pizzeria was the best part of our stay in Rio Rico. Our waitress was extremely polite, friendly and helpful as she explained the different dishes and types of pizza offered here. My husband ordered a 12" thin crust pizza topped with caramelized onions and I had a 9" thicker crust margarita pizza. Both pizzas... More

We had heard good things about this place, particularly that it used a wood- fired oven, so we decided to try a 'take out' pizza one night when I got home too late to cook myself. This place is very close to where we live, & located in a shopping plaza I frequent. The restaurant itself looks very inviting, with... More

The pizzas are so tasty and one of a kind. The chicken artichokes pasta dish was very good, a little messy. I felt the restaurant is small and compacted. We started out with some sort Greek balsamic salad it was fresh and the dressing was not over whelming. Great place for dinner and lunch!

We only had pizza here but I can say it was absolutely the best! We ordered ricotta stuffed crust, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil pizza. Yum! The thickness of the crust, the fresh ricotta taste was amazing. I think of this place all the time. I've not found anything even close to the same quality.

After having an unpleasant experience at another Italian restaurant nearby (Melio's - Tubac), this was like a breath of fresh air. The staff was cordial, service and food were outstanding. We split a Greek salad. The produce was fresh and the balsamic dressing was good. I ordered the Celeste, a rigatoni pasta in a light gorgonzola sauce with sweet Italian... More

My wife ordered the pasta dish that was listed as having kalamata olives, artichokes, and chicken. What showed up was pasta covered with green glop that looked like it came out of a blender. No visible chicken, olives, etc. Service was very slow throughout the meal.

This place is an absolute gem. Eaten here several times now and love the food here. The gyros is my favorite dish. The food is so super fresh and delicious. You can even see into the kitchen as they stretch out the dough for your freshly made pizza. The servers greet you with a smile and remember their guests. I... More

Once again enjoyed our Sausage Pizza with Red Sauce instead of the pesto offered. Great thin crust. Very disappointed in their Antipasto Salad. Probably the worst one we have had due to the fact there was hardly anything to it. Small bits of cheese and meat. Their other salads looked better.
