Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Great food, but the service could use some work. The owner is nice to customers but doesn't seem to treat servers very well.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

Wow, I'm shocked at the bad reviews on here. There's 0% chance that a anyone had an experience like that-- and those users only ever gave one review....hmmmm. They are always kind to everyone and have some of the best tasting food in Tucson. I hope people see past the negativity and give it a shot. It's my go-to for lunch dates with friends I meet up with downtown. The only bummer is they only accept cash-- but I go at least twice a month so obviously it's not a deal breaker lol. They have like 4(?) kinds of fresh juice and their combination plate is always an enjoyable surprise. I highly recommend their chicken mole and their vegetarian tamale :)

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: “Saffron Indian Bistro

I have eaten here a number of times now and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance more than any other Indian restaurant I've ever been to. I felt so confident in this restaurant that I finally talked my son-in-law from England into trying it!! After 12 years in the states he said he finally found a proper Indian restaurant! Being from England and being that Indian food is his favorite, I think that is a great compliment! Keep up the superb work Saffron!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I stopped in from Alaska while visiting a friend in Tucson. Turned into a wonderful evening. Yvonne made me feel like I was one of the family. Great experience and I am going to miss the tastings until I can get back there again. It's on my list when I return.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Weekend wine tastings at CataVinos are fantastic. Along with your 6 tastes (amazingly priced at just $10.00!!!) you get gourmet cheese as well as palette cleansers. Yvonne also has a really nice assortment of reasonably priced cheeses, meats, and crackers for purchase to accompany your wine. After your tasting you can purchase a glass of your choice for just $5.00. Each week the wine list is built around a clever theme so you can go every weekend and be sure to taste completely different wines. I've gone there on a whim on my own, planned with friends, and had many personal parties there and I always bring out of town guests there. The atmosphere is lovely both inside the shop and outside on the patio. This is one of the best spots for Tucson fun and a great way to support local business!

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

We love the LIttle Poca Cosa. The food fresh and delicious, and the service warm and friendly. In fact, we are heading out with our family in about 5 minutes to enjoy another thoroughly enjoyable lunch at our favorite little corner restaurant in Tucson ..

Re: “Saga

The food is very good, different from other sushi restaurants because it also has Mexican food and the tacos are the best!!

Re: “Fred's Arena Bar and Steakhouse

Fred's is a long drive from Tucson, off Sierrita Mountain Rd. and not so easy to find, but worth the effort. It's nothing fancy - just an old-school steakhouse with good food and a great, out-in-the-country atmosphere. The beef is the best thing to order on the menu. Fred's has a roping arena and also stores a lot of the rolling stock used in the Rodeo Parade. We have been going to Fred's for over 30 years, even though we no longer live in Tucson. It's a taste of what Tucson was like before the population explosion.

Re: “Coyote Pause Café

Coyote Pause is a delightful place to eat breakfast or lunch on the west side of the Tucson Mountains. The menu features items using local ingredients, everything is tasty and prepared properly. Service is friendly and efficient. We eat here whenever visiting the big city.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

Will never patronize this restaurant ever again!. They wouldn't accept a $100 gift certificate. We received it as a gift from some grateful friends, but management wouldn't honor it. WHY NOT? It's equivalent to us having paid for our meal in advance. Definitely not a sound business approach for endearing themselves to their customers.

Re: “Karuna's Thai Plate

If you're entertaining your yachting buddies from the Riviera and are looking for a local showpiece to impress...this is not the place. If you're looking for great Thai food at a great price...Ill see you there!!!!

Re: “The B Line

One of my very favorite places to eat breakfast in Tucson. The carne asada breakfast burrito is Tucson's best. The biscuits, available on the weekend, are superb, and again the best in Tucson. I also like the bagel and lox plate. In terms of lunch/dinner, I enjoy the pasta alla vodka (pay the extra $ and get the sausage on top), as well as the fish tacos. Wait staff are nice and attentive, and it's a great place to have a conversation (meaning, you aren't impeded by too-loud music or bad acoustics as happens too much in Tucson).

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: “Pat's Drive-In

Pats is still great but the Pats on 6th. Avenue was the REAL Pats.
You could buy an 8 pack with a box of fries for around $1.25, and the quality of the food was REAL food; NOT turkey or who knows what the corporations now have you eating.

Sure do miss them and Sandy's; THE best burgers in town! 10 for a buck!
