Great Pizza, Great Service

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... read 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

Went to Magpies on 4th Street with a group of 12. The Service was excellent and handled the group well. The owner came out and told us about the different pizza doughs. He was very enthusiastic. My wife and I designed our own pizza and it was outstanding. It was made exactly as we ordered. The beer was ice cold.... More

This is always on our list of places to eat when we visit Tucson. Some of the best pizza anywhere. Several different pesto sauces allow for very different pizzas. Great ingredients. When in this part of Arizona, try Magpie's Pizza.

Have lived in AZ for 3 years now and this is the best pizza by far that I have had! Too bad I don't live in Tucson. We had a traditional cheese, mozzarella, pepperoni and mushroom which we never do, but it was so light and flavorful and the crust was outstanding. We enjoyed the lovely weather on the patio...

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
