Great Italian

Went here after being referred by a local. Place was packed on a Tuesday. Service was great and quick. Wine is very cheap by the bottle in the area with no exception here. Had the meatballs and bow ties for apps, both well done. Part of our table had pizza, the other pastas. Everyone really... read more

Solid red-sauced Italian food. Generous amount of meat in my Spaghetti Bolognese. Came with bread. Filling. Service fine. Seemed like a place locals came to.

We had a very disappointing Shrimp Parmesan - only 4 large shrimp for us to share with pasta that was just OK. The tails were left on the breaded shrimp before sauce was added & it was baked. Our waitress assured us this was normal procedure. The salad prior to the main course was fine. The bread that accompanied the... More

We have been going to the Italian Peasant for years. The food is always very good. They have the best pizza in southern Arizona. A nice restaurant to visit, while shopping at Tubac. Or whenever you want good Italian food. You will not be disappointed.

was the only place opened on a sunday night of Labor day. I need to admit that as a food geek from NYC I was surprised that the food here seemed so very ordinary . We had the garlic chicken on angle hair pasta-- that had little garlic and was dry. I had the shrimp dish and that had enough... More

We took friends who had never been there and they were impressed. We plan a return trip with them soon. I had my usual - the ahi salad. It is beyond wonderful. Ate all the tuna but took half the lettuce and cold saute'd vegies home for next day lunch. Female friend had eggplant parm and loved it. She took... More

This was our only experience eating at the Italian Peasant. We had been told the food was good. We shared the Chicken Parmesan which came with salad and a side choice. We picked the spaghetti. The only thing we felt was outstanding were the salad dressings (blue cheese and balsamic) and the garlic bread.

Just outstanding, one of our favorite restaurants south of Tucson. Try the wood fired pizza, mussels and pastas, you will be pleasantly surprised. As a matter of fct we are going there for dinner tonight,

It may actually be a misnomer to call this a "peasant burger", that doesn't do it justice. I've never eaten anything here that I didn't like. The pizza is NY great, the parms of various styles are really great. Salads better than most and the decor is comfortable. Still it's the burger that brings me back, time and time again.... More

This restaurant is a well-balanced menu from light and healthy dishes to the heavy eater. My wife loves they're Mediterranean style dishes and I go for the hunter sandwich which is thinly sliced fillet mignon sautéed Portabella mushrooms melted provolone on grilled Italian bread. Very nice and romantic dining room. You can also get pizza ago.
