Re: “Oregano's

First, the food is fantastic, but it is a bit pricey for what you get. The atmosphere of the place seems sort of confused between Hooters and Applebees: it is family friendly, despite the attractive waitresses wearing shirts with sexual innuendo. My biggest gripe (the reason they lose a star) is that the place feels sickeningly corporate despite being a local (Arizona) chain. I wish they'd drop the short silent clip-reel of 40s/50s films and just let the customers watch real TV. However, the food is certainly good enough and interesting enough to get me to drop by every so often.

Re: “1702

I have to agree with Jeff; I would not advise going here if you are solely looking for a quality pie. The pizza is adequate, but unexceptional. 1702 is really about atmosphere. It's an awesome place to kick back with friends; the energy here is great. Lots of happy, beer-buzzed folks having a good time with their group.

As Jeff mentioned there are more beers on tap than you could shake a fist at. So, definitely come here if you are looking for a variety of beers on tap.

To sum it up: great ambience, exceptional beer, ho-hum food.

Re: “1702

If you go expecting good pizza, you'll be disappointed. But the selection of beers on tap is unprecedented for a Tucson restaurant. When I went there were more beers on tap than I could count, each served in proper glassware. IPAs, porters, lagers, trippels, wheat beers, milk stouts, you name it. The best part: they rotate out their beers on a regular basis, so you can always order something new.

Re: “Vero Amore

Classic Neopolitan Pizza Pie, they make their own fresh mozzarella, use quality ingredients and the wood oven delivers a unique rich taste. Tucson is very lucky to have such a pizza parlor, today everywhere you look its thin crust and wood fire oven but this place actually gets it right. Plus great salads!

Re: “La Feruta's NY Pizza Café

This _was_ La Ferlita's (Feruta's?) and it's been closed for at least four years. Now Giordano's. I liked La Ferlita's pizza better.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

I don't know what the previous two commenters ate, but this place is actually pretty good. The pizza is flavorful, kind of a wheaty/honey crust that I enjoy. We've taken friends here also and they've always liked it. Service is fast and friendly, too. I guess the commenter above owes me $5, because I can honestly look him in the eye and tell him I enjoy Boston's!

Re: “1702

After hearing people rave about this place I tried it one night during the week and was very disappointed. I wasn't there for beer I was there for Pizza. I went with a friend and the place was about 3/4 full but by no means too busy to get service. We placed our order, sat and chatted for a little over an hour! When we were about to ask our server where our two slices with topping were another server brought them to us and they were huge and tasty looking! However, they were barely warm! They appeared to have once been "hot" and "ready" to serve but we were not too thrilled. Yes, we could have had them reheat our order or remake it but instead we ate some and took the rest home, it was better then next day after being heated! I'd rather go to Brooklyn! I realize this isn't the way they intended to serve us but they did! When in doubt, throw it out and let your customers know there was s problem then comp their order! Eric has done a fine job giving Tucson really good food and service in the past this was just one of those Oops situations! Next time I'll sit up front where I can see the orders come out!

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

Amazing bad food. If you can seriously look me in the eye and tell me you enjoy the food here I'll give you five dollars. How does this place stay in business? And no! I don't think we came on a bad day. Some chains are good. This is not!

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

Awful folks! Honestly, this place is a total letdown food wise. I'd like to know who tasted and approved the food items before putting this stuff on the menu for public consumption? I gave this place two chances and both times it failed to satisfy. Let's just say it's a cut below mall food court crap. Boston's makes Olive Garden look like 5 star restaurant. Two strikes you're out Boston's!

Re: “Grimaldi's

Grimaldi's pizzas are killer stuff. Super tasty topping too. Even if you normally like thick crust pizza you'll love their coal fired thin crusted pizzas. The only style they make. By no means are the pizzas cheap, but they are very good. Easily the best in Tucson. You'll pay close to $20 for large 2-3 item pizza. Pricey but not too overboard. Oh, and one large salad is easily enough for two people. So only order one for two or maybe even three people. FYI though. The house dressing isn't all that great. They should have more choices for dressings. And service? Depends on who you get. We've had very good and not so good servers. Did I mention how good the pizzas are? Try it and you'll, you'll like it.

Re: “Chicago Bar

Small bar with a tiny stage for bands. Owner books the same two bands over and over. Not enough good new talent. Same old same old. Not real bad or anything, however, a lot of burnt out smoker frequent this dive.

Re: “Sauce

Casual place with superior salads and thin crust pizzas. Offers one of best chicken caesar salads in Tucson. We love the sausage and caramelized onion pizza and the chicken caesar and parmesan pizza is a real winner.

Re: “Magpies Gourmet Pizza

The pizzas here are absolutely delightful and satisfying. I'd say that this is the only pizza place in Tucson that rivals 1702.

Re: “1702

Great pizza and great beer, however, the service is sometimes scant, understaffed, and takes a long time to get food and refills.

Re: “Sauce

The shells and meatballs were excellent (and I'm Italian), and the service outstanding - friendly and service oriented. I'm here on business and highly recommend!
