Beer selection is excellent, with a few local-ish brews and a ton of ones from places you may never have heard of. Pizza is serviceable, with a crispy crust and decent toppings. Service can be slow, even during the summer months--plan to linger.
Great selection & fresh pizzas, topping combos range from classic to new inventions. Be sure to schedule extra time if you go during lunchtime.
As good as it gets outside of the Windy City. Deep dish like it should be.
Must have been a bad day for darbone - I was there for dinner with two friends last Friday - 10-29 and had a WONDERFUL experience. Very attentive and friendly server, water served right after we were seated and the wine list offered. We split the very generous Caprese salad (no grey prosciutto here) which was wonderfully fresh right down to the very red and tasty tomatoes! We then split 2 pizzas - the Quattro Formaggi (wouldn't have minded just a TAD more cheese) and a special that night with sliced Italian sausage, red and green peppers, onions and lots of cheese. We were in no hurry as we were all catching up on each other's lives and never felt rushed at all. Finished the meal with one of their skillet cookies (chocolate chip with vanilla bean ice cream) and a white chocolate Pannacotta with blackberries. YUM! I know that the Dove Mountain VA has a larger menu but it was WAY too far for 2/3 of our group. We didn't feel cheated one bit by the Swan Road location! 4 stars instead of 5 due to the fact that the cheese pizza needed more cheese!
For those of you that have a gluten sensitivity and miss pizza, eclectic delivers great tasting gluten-free pizza... at a cost. The pizza and other gluten free menu items seem really overpriced, especially when compared to the regular menu items. The ambiance is kind of awkward. It's in a strip mall along busy Tanque Verde. But the service has been consistently good and the pizza ingredients are fresh, local and organic when possible and delicious. They even serve gluten free beer! Overall, I would ignore the quirks and support this great Tucson business offering an option for Celiacs and gluten sensitive folks.
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.
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.
Small place but very good pizza, and good friendly service.
We had the heart attack pizza and it was great!!!
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!
The pizzas here are absolutely delightful and satisfying. I'd say that this is the only pizza place in Tucson that rivals 1702.
Great pizza and great beer, however, the service is sometimes scant, understaffed, and takes a long time to get food and refills.
