“Excellent food, nice staff, and lovely environment”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you walk in it feels very cozy and comfortable. Food is excellent, very thin crust pizza is elegant and on the light side. This place is not cheap, but they do offer lunch specials and carry out specials. Full wine and beer selections. Nice place for a relaxing meal. Enjoyed it very much!!

“When are you coming to Tucson??”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Hands down, best pizza in Arizona and beyond. It's a small place, very friendly, gets crowded but worth it! There are two types of pizza available and we tried both. The thin crust was absolutely sublime. The thicker crust was still good but got a little soggy in the middle with all the toppings. The salad was fresh and more than enough for 2. We had a lot of food left over. We were very surprised to find this place in Rio Rico while we were there for a weekend as the resort. We may even make the trip down just to eat here if they don't open one in Tucson soon!

“So handy, so friendly, so good”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

A delightful place to dine, indoors and out. Selection of food really good and most tasteful, still working through the menu and the only downside so far was the spaghetti meatball dish. All the other food was beautifully prepared, tasted good and service was great. best checkout service yet.

“Decent Pizza-had better”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The experience was not that great. We noticed that since we were not locales, they did not give us the same treatment as others who were regular customers. We felt singled out. The pizza was just okay. I have had better. I used to live in NY so what can I say.

“Nonna Vivi”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Noted this restaurant on Trip Advisor and since we were in Rio Rico for a Memorial Day getaway we thought we would give it a try. It was busy so we sat outside and enjoyed bruschetta, a great "heritage tomato" pizza, salad, a nice wine. We capped it off with home-made coconut cream pie and a cappuccino. The entire experience was as if we were guests at someone's home. Looking at the portions of spaghetti and meatballs coming out of the kitchen, this place feeds the hungry. If you are in Rio Rico, you don't want to miss it.
