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

Friday, May 9, before a 'Cats game. I thought the worst for wait and seating. WRONG! Place was empty. In fact, there was more Staff at one point than patrons. So we were quickly seated at the bar and drink orders taken. Their beer and ale list is a bit out of date and the Bar person will be the... More

This will be our last attempt at Broadway/Houghton location. Order two pizzia's arrived 20 minutes later to be told one was ready and the other had not gone into the oven yet. Had to stand and wait, no I'm sorry, or offer as to way it was not ready. By the time I got them home the crust was doughy... More

We are not from here so we decided to take a look to the reviews and they say it was really good. We ordered chicken wings, they were burned. A greek salad that was made with the cheapest ingredientes ever, starting from the vinaigrette you could smell the heinz vinagre from it, no calamata olives and a very very poor... More

Tried Magpie's after a local recommended we try a restaurant on 4th Ave. We parked and saw Magpies and figured we would give it a try. We sat outside and it was absolutely wonderful! We both had the Magpie pizza and it was delicious. The ambiance was great, as we were right by the sidewalk and could people watch. It's... More

A friendly place with good pizza and cold beer! You can watch your pizza being and the dough being shaped and thrown. Sit at the outside bar and the people watching is fantastic.

This is not a romantic or quiet place. It is definitely busy and tend to be noisy. It is a young, active and fun university type of crowd in general and, I am sure, we brought the average age up.....But the important thing is: the pizza was good. We were tired from all the miles covered that day, wanted something... More

We enjoyed the pizza well enough, the crust was cardboard like and bland. We were surprised to be charged for water. And the bathroom was hideous. I thought I was in the USA, but suddenly felt like I was in a third world country. If I had used the bathroom before I ate, I would have walked out.

Nice, relaxed atmosphere in the "funky fun" 4th Avenue district of Tucson. We had a pizza and a calzone which were some of the best. Excellent service, very courteous staff.
