Great Italian Food Selection and Real Deals for Summer

We went to get a glass of wine and were surprised by having missed this spot for the last 11 years. In the summer because things are slow, they have a great menu with reduced prices. It will be ending in about 2 weeks. The prices are for 2 people and include salad or soup, main meal, and... read more

Took my wife to date night here and ordered a vegetarian pizza, she was so impressed the vegetables were perfect and not burnt, as so often a pizza with vegetables can be. We shared a salad and enjoyed the homemade olive oil with our bread with plenty of leftovers from our meal. The homemade Tiramisu really struck a cord with... More

We are presently staying at Far Horizons Tucson Village RV Resort. This restaurant is within walking distance. 5 to 10 min. Wheelchair accessible. Good service. Family owned. Fresh food. Atmosphere is nice. Washrooms are a little tired but very clean. Menu has a good variety. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. Seafood is frozen but not old. Very tasty.... More

Caesar would have had a stroke... We visited Dolce Vita in Tucson, Arizona on a Saturday evening (17:30) during March, 2015. The three of us (my wife, daughter and me) walked into the restaurant with no reservation and were greeted by a pleasant young lady who seated us at a table near the back of the north-eastern-most wall. The table... More

The food was hot, but no better than I make for my family at home. At $20 per person, it's just not worth it, in my opinion. I was also disappointed that the bread was just a small rather stale loaf and not the homemade garlic rolls I've come to love in other small Italian restaurants.

I had heard wonderful things about this place and thought I would take my cousin, who is from out of town here for dinner. I love Italian food and since moving to Tucson a few weeks ago, I was looking forward to finding a nice Italian place. The restaurant was easy to find with plenty of parking. The atmosphere was...

Five of us for dinner, all ordering different dishes and all very satisfied with the food. The service was very good and one of the best favorable points for us was the ability for all of us to talk. So many of the Tucson restaurants do NOT allow you to do that these days with the closeness of tables and... More

Came in for a late lunch. The service was good and the prices were reasonable. Had the soup of the day which was similar to Italian wedding soup, Very flavorful. The salads were fresh and the dressing was very good. Great Italian restaurant would visit again.

Some of the best italian food I have ever had! However the busboy continualy sprayed tables with some foul disinfectent spray. He bussed three tables around us spraying foul chemicals into the air each time. This happened EVEN after complaing. As a result our dinner was unfinished. It was painful not to finish this delicious dinner as a result of... More
