Re: “Verona Italian Restaurant

Not sure what Mo is trying to pass off as veal but it looked and tasted like deli turkey. It should be illegal to fradulently advertise and serve something that isnt.
Look forward to this place closing.

Re: “Guiseppe's

We have been going to Gueseppi for the last year or so. I wanted to add a current review here.
The food is really really good. I had the Shrimp Picatta last night. It had plenty of perfectly cooked shrimp, artichoke, spinach and capers in a wine butter garlic sauce and served over linguinni. This is one of the best restaurant dishes I have ever had anywhere. It was a special but they said to just ask for it anytime and they would make it. The eggplant parm here is also the best in town. The prices are very reasonable and service has always been great for us.

Re: “Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant

The house dressing, feta and garlic, is to die for!

Re: “Mad Mario's Italian Deli

Alas, closed, but it was a great place for good food at good prices. There's a Greek fast food restaurant in the space now.

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

I find this place gross and a disgrace to italian cuisine. I really hate to bash a local independent restaurant, but frozen, boxed apps, and an absolute flavorless sauce is a sure fire way to not endear yourself to an italian foodie.

The reason why the Joe's special is so popular? That is the only dish containing garlic and the cheese masks the horribly HUNTS tomato sauce.

Step ya game up! Nothing like my "Mama's" cooking.

Re: “Mad Mario's Italian Deli

Try it for Hot or Cold Sandwiches, Hot Italian entrees, even salads - this food rocks!
Careful, if you order the Chicken Parm sandwich... You'll start craving this place and be back again & again!

My favorite secret menu item - A Tuna Sandwich on a TOASTED roll. Trust me...

Re: “Guiseppe's

The first time I went was lunch on the patio it was awesome,2nd time took freinds for dinner on patio,we had horrible service and managment gave us a $20 gift cert.Tried it again because I have always loved Scordatos family,There seemed to be plenty of help but service was really bad and slow ost dishes didn't come with ingredients as explained on menu.There were at least 3 managers on the floor but not really doin their job.Sorry to say we were so disappointed we won't be goin back.Manager should read his reveiws.I would rather have my dinner alittle late instead of cooks just throwing things together to get it out.Surprising and sad for Scordato's reputation.Bummed out!

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

Bad Italian

Ragu is better! All the people adding four and five star must be related to the Asian family that owns this place cause it was musty and smelly inside, the food was cold in the center and the staff was clueless.

Don't waste your time coming here it is NOT worth it!

Re: “Roma Imports

I'll second that on Roma's. South on Campbell to the girls softball fields, turn R and then first left and first right. Look for the flag (Italian)

Re: “Caffe Torino

Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham. Some people don't know that and it is translated on the menu. We have a wonderful pork ossobuco with porcini mushroom and white wine sauce. We don't advertise it as veal ossobuco. People love this dish and the person that criticized it never even tried it. I have the feeling I know who that person is. I wasn't aware that Walmart was carrying wines because I never shop there. We are as authentic as it can be. If you want to practice your Italian, please come over. I was born in Italy and lived there half of my life. I hate former employees who don't have a job and don't have better things to do but write fake reviews

Re: “Caruso's

I think the food at Caruso's is great! I have never been disappointed. The house salad dressing they have is so delicious I am always asking for more bread to dip in it. I am very happy that there is a place in Tucson that has history, great food and good service!

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

A bit on the pricey side with above average food. The service was outstanding and a nice clean atmosphere. The Veal dish that I had was Good (but a tiny bit salty) and the Sauce on the Spaggetti tasted like it was from a can.
This place is a nice date place with a nice romantic setting.

Re: “Viro's Italian Bakery and Cafe

We stopped in thinking it was an Italian deli only and were pleasantly surprised by their dinner menu. They serve handmade vegetarian ravioli-several types, including a slightly sweet squash filled pasta that contrasted nicely with the buttery, garlicky sauce. My husband had the baked ziti with plenty of handmade sausage.

The cannoli made a fine ending to the meal. We noticed the variety of cookies in the pastry case but it was the unfilled cannoli shells that caught our eye. Chocolate dipped or plain? We asked our server for both and he cheerfully brought us cannoli that were perfect- they aren't filled until the customer orders them, keeping the shell from becoming soggy.

Bread baked fresh on the premises, overhearing some funny banter between staff, great food left us wondering, why hadn't we stopped in before?

We're grateful for decent restaurants on the eastside.

Re: “Caffe Torino

I have been dining at Caffe Torino for years and have always enjoyed the food. My favorite has to be the grilled scallops with butter sauce, always cooked to perfection! Another favorite is the scollio. Allow time to relax and enjoy!

Re: “Bazil's

Pizza here is fantastic. Thin crust Chicago style. I love the turkey sausage he makes, and the shrimp and artichoke specialty pizza is delicious!!

Re: “Caffe Torino

They really dont know how to cook veal. One dish that promised prosciutto used slices of processed deli ham. An osso bucco dish used pork shank instead of veal. Their wine selection is poor- no thought whatsoever to their wine list. Just a random sampling of ordinary Italian and California selections one would find at Wal-mart. Service is very spotty and unprofessional. Prices not competitive with other more authentic Italian bistros in the area. Avoid at all costs.

Re: “Vitello's Ristorante Italiano

the thing that really upsets me is when there is a very hard working family trying there best to please everybody.here comes along somebody to put them down , see they don`t mention that when they use buy one get one free dinners club they order water to drink and keep the bread coming and when they do the wine tasteing the first thing they ask is (IS IT FREE)and then there not even happy and complain so they can get something else for free,some people really don`t now a good thing when the got it. so i say the review that vitellos got in the paper was what this family deserves for all there hard work they have done.so i say to vitellos thumbs up,great job.
