Great service. Better than average pizza

The owner makes his rounds and is very personable. A group of high school kids(10) came after their football game and the owner spent time talking to the kids and he comped them ice cream. Very nice gesture. The same guy spent time at our table and brought out some free wings. They where very... read more

I loved this place. My sister in law has a dairy allergy and they were able to make her a pizza with dairy free options. There was a group of 5 of us and all our orders came out correct and it tasted great. It is not NY pizza but very delicious and fresh. I highly recommend this pizza place.... More

The pizza here was really good. But for some reason there was a really weird smell. It wasn't nasty or foul, but very present and very puzzling. Table service was okay.

I ordered Chicken wings and the Pizza and both were great. The Hot Sauce on the chicken wings was just right and my dip was blue cheese which just added to the enjoyment. I had 1 14" The Beast my eyes were bigger than my stomach so I ended up taking half of it home with me and it still... More

I've been in Tucson many years...finally tried the "award winning" Magpie's for the first time. Told them I had a BOGO coupon...maybe that was a mistake. The medium 3 item was ok...problem was the 2nd pizza. We ordered a cheese pizza...easy on the sauce, please. What we got was a burnt pizza with no sauce at all...I fed most of... More

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
