Awesome Pizza!

This place offers a wide variety of pizzas (including gluten free) that are very filling and delicious. We were there on a quiet night and the service was very fast. A little icing on the cake is the bowl of popcorn that you revive at your table upon your arrival. Such a nice touch!

This place is much better than Brooklyn Pizza, but the service is always slow and the waitstaff are generally lazy. That aside, the pizza can be really good. Ask for exactly what you want and they will make it for you. Sitting outside is better than in. Good shade in the evenings and a cool place to people watch.

My fiance and I love pizza we are new to Tucson and we just ended up at Magpies. You can definitely taste the gourmet in the pizza I would recommend this place to everyone. When my family decides to visit I will definitely bring them to Magpies, try it out you will not be disappointed.

The days when a pizzeria could just pile on nitrate sausage, corn syrup-based sauce, and other factory farm toppings ought to be over by now. It would be alright if Magpie's didn't pass themselves off as a destination pizzeria. If they are going to ask gourmet prices, the ingredients should be something a step above what you could buy from... More

we just dined with friends after a day of golf. We arrived at 6 PM and sat on the patio as it was a lovely evening. It took awhile to be noticed. We finally ordered drinks. They eventually arrived and our food order was taken a while later. Our salads and appetizer arrived after another while. People arrived next to... More

Magpies is my go-to pizza place. I typically order take and bake, but have ordered baked pizzas for a group event. The quality of their ingredients is high and we love the whole wheat crust. This week I placed an order for 4 pizzas to be delivered to a business meeting. I called mid-day and requested a 5:30 delivery. The... More

Stopped here last Sunday while walking 4th Ave. There were three of us and we ordered the medium Greek pizza. The medium is about 8 slices. The pizza is a thinner crust which was nice and firm on the bottom but the end crust was chewy, the way it should be I think. You have a choice of crusts; white,... More

Ordered a meatball sub with a local beer and my wife ordered a calzone - food was terrific and the service friendly and attentive. Also loved the Zydeco music playing - really added to the atmosphere. Sat outside to enjoy the weather (a nice escape from the nasty new england weather we've been having). Would definitely go back!

Being unfamiliar with the beers on tap, the waiter brought me a sample of several different beers to try before selecting one! The pizza was great and no issue for them to make to order. Parking is a bit hard to find as it was a busy night and there are several restaurants and bars there, although there is a... More
