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: “Jax Kitchen

Love Jax. It is one of our favorites on the the north side. Food is simple, relaxed and perfectly prepared every time. The quality is there on the plate! Brian is a sharp restauranteur and his focus on detail, quality and a truly comfortable atmosphere is what keeps us coming back again and again.

Re: “El Rio Bakery

I love this little place. The chile rellenos are excellent. The soups, filling and tasty, are served with a choice of corn/flour tortillas. It's a family run business [no, I'm not part of the family]. I've been so often that I know them, tho! The pan dulces can be taken home and so can the soups. When you sit in the small dining area you are down in Mexico, as the lovely mural fills the wall with rural scences that include an active volcanco.

Re: “Bai Thong

I agree with Arthur and Reuven, above; this is a very good Thai restaurant with some excellent dishes. My introduction to Thai food was in Thailand in the 1970's. It was "instant affinity". After that, I frequently sought out Thai places when visiting or living in major cities in the US and Europe, which often provided fine culinary surprises. In Tucson, however, I've been disappointed (including at the other restaurants mentioned in reviews here), despite this city's many other good ethnic (and other) restaurants, so I'm especially happy to report on our superb dinner tonight (November 5th, 2010) at Bai Thong. We odered the gai satay and papaya salad appetizers, Pad Thai and a fish curry. Each was delicious. The peanut sauce was thick and rich and the chicken well-grilled and tender. The papaya salad blended spicy and tart flavors expertly. The fish curry was subtly spiced with kaffir lime leaves and enough anise to round out the peppery coconut sauce without dominating the mix. And the Pad Thai was well blended and just tart enough to bring up the taste of each ingredient. Thai food can be heavy; this wasn’t. The pricing was reasonable, and our service tonight was quick, efficient, attentive, dignified and pleasant, including a lovely smile. The decor (if you radically shrink the space) is actually not unlike many restaurants in Asia (which doesn't tend to the highly atmospheric except for tourists and theater). And the music was thankfully quiet. I personally enjoyed the touch of Buddhist homespun philosophy and scenic photos under the table glass. All in all, Bai Thong treated us to rich, complex and luscious flavors and textures and to an enjoyable evening of great Thai food.

Re: “Zachary's

As good as it gets outside of the Windy City. Deep dish like it should be.

Re: “Vero Amore

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!

Sat on the terrace. Nice ambiance, jazz trio playing. Seafood was good. Drinks were good. Would go again.

Re: “Inca's Peruvian Cuisine

I found the Lomo Saltado dish simply delicious and the beef was a quality cut. I like the savory seasoning of the dishes I went with my girlfriend and we had a polite waiter that gave us good service. The pictures of Peru are enjoyable to watch, quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

I love the salads, they are fresh and full of crisp veggies with garbanzo beans and a delicious dressing. Another favorite is the persian chicken kebob- Jojeh sandwich I find the sauce and onions in this wrap, I have not been able to try much more because these are my favorites.

Re: “Dizzy G's

Good breakfast at an affordable price. The atmosphere is a little dark and dingy, but the food makes up for it. Highly recommend it, and wish they were open both on weekends and for dinner.

Re: “Mi Nidito

This is the real deal in spite of the hype of the past decade since "the president" dined here. The food is authentic; fattening and rich in Sonoran style sauces and traditions. The building is but a hole in the wall but it's owners and staff put out flavorful favorites; my personal pick: chicken enchiladas. You'll have a wait if you go at normal mealtimes. My advice: go at an off hour and enjoy!

Re: “Renee's Organic Oven

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.
