Our service was wonderful for our large crowd. We order appetizers of Chicken Wings. They brought us free popcorn and samples of gelato. Our pizza was outstanding, everyone gave it a thumbs up. We order the White Pizza and BBQ Chicken. The chicken wings were excellent with wonderful seasoning.

We're always on the lookout for great pizza...particularly with outside dining and Magpies has both. We each had a small (ok, not sooo small) salad and we split a white cheese pizza. It was all great! Crispy crust and just the right level of topping...no over-kill. Since we were there on a Saturday evening, we also had the pleasure of... More

Their magnificient giant is our favorite, with their herb crust (be sure to ask for this). Very nice salads too and quite large. Their soft-inside bread sticks are wonderful too, especially when you dip them in the red sauce. Their red sauce is full bodied and tasty, as determined not only by me but also by my southern Italian husband.... More

Kelly saw us walk in and greeted us immediately and kept us entertained during the dinner rush wait. We got free samples of the amazing baked wings and ranch dressing they have there and some frozen yogurt that was more like a slushy (pink lemonade with mini gummy bears, yes please). Everyone was so cool! Even the other patrons sitting... More

If you local affair and great pizza, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is college like and very family friendly. We can sit outside and have fun and eat great pizza. The kids are given dough to create their own cinnamon dessert. When we go back we will eat here.

I really enjoy magpies. It's cool that they have a window where you can watch them handtoss the dough. I usually stick with the cheese. Boring I know but it's delicious

Our server was friendly, and seemed to really enjoy working at the restaurant. The owner came over and chatted with us for a minute, and the overall atmosphere was a lot of fun. They offered some samples of their beers on tap to help us make our drink decisions. The pizza was excellent (we ordered "The Beast"). I also like... More

The owner was so nice. We ordered 2 pizzas and they were the BEST pizzas we have ever had and I am very very picky about pizza. ** I highly... More

My friends and I ate here last evening. I had traveled to Tucson on vacation. My niece suggested Magpies, and it was a great choice. Some of us ordered a large pizza that feed several people. I had the Godfather single pizza. Both were served at the same time, and were excellent. They have a large selection of wines and... More

We ate at the 4th Ave. location, nice little place. We split a calzone & it was MORE than enough for each of us. Server was attentive, only drawback was LOUD Sports TVs! Would definitely return
