Re: “Chicago Bar

I don't mean to be rude but we saw Shell Shock and found them to be rather boring. We left after the first set. It was a long drive for us to be let down. By the way, we love classic rock when it's done well. Sorry.

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

No very good at all. That's what our party of five ended up saying after eating dinner here. I highly doubt any of us will come back as the food isn't happening here.

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

I ate at this restaurant Saturday night with my son. We ate in the bar area. It had a great atmosphere. Lot's of big screen TVs. Good selection of beers on tap.

Service was pretty good except I had to track down the server when I wanted my check (I really hate that).

We ordered some wings for an appetizer. They were pretty good by western NY state standards. I ordered an individual sized veggie pizza and my son ordered a small "Chicken Da Vinci" pizza. The pizzas both "looked nice" and had fresh ingredients.

And now for my big beef with this place,... Both pizzas were UNDER BAKED. The middles of the pizzas were lukewarm with the cheese only slightly melted. The cheese was not browned at all. The crusts were not browned at all. None of the ingredients had blended. It just tasted like the individual lukewarm ingredients. Also, the pizza crusts were prefabricated and bland

If they baked the pizzas a few extra minutes they would have a much better product. After all, the words "Gourmet Pizza" are in their name.

Would I go back? I'm on the fence. There wasn't one thing that stood out that would make me want to go back. Since I have to make a recommendation I have to say "No".

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: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

Used to like it but it has gone down hill over the last few years. Poor quality pizza and horrible service. I have had multiple deliveries where the pizza arrives 30 or 40 minutes later than they say it will and when it gets there it is burnt on the bottom and cold. It takes a lot of effort to screw up that bad. Not to mention EVERY time I have added a six pack to my order the driver "forgets it in the cooler" and has to go back to his car for it. Hmmmmm. Im guessing they hope you forget so they get free beer.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

The crust use to be excellent. Just a few weeks ago, had it delivered to my disappointed! The crust tasted like it had been frozen for a long time. Low Quality Pizza.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

What the hell happened tonight? I ordered for take out they told me 35 mins. I came in 35 mins and had to wait an extra 15-20 minutes. They handed me my soda first and it got warm during that time. I asked them to put it back in the fridge and when I got my pizza they handed me the same warm soda. I got home and the garlic knots were BLACK and hard and if I threw it at a window it would break it. AND we found a short black hair (possibly from facial hair or a male) on the pizza. The pizza was slapped together and the cheese didn't even stick to the crust. I can't even complain to the company because there isn't something to write on the website. I'm totally disappointed and honestly I rather pay more at a different pizzeria (and I live a block away) instead of the crap food and piss poor customer service I just experienced.

Re: “Bianchi's

Oh my gosh. Blah-anchi's. Crap-anchi's. No, really. My husband had the meatball sandwich and I have the lasagna. Yuk! So flavorless and blah. We could be wrong but from the looks of their pizzas, we suspect they are on par with what you might get at a school cafeteria.

Re: “Vero Amore

Don't waste your time or money at the Swan Rd location. It's hard to believe the owners allow this place to operate using the same name as the Dove Mountain store (which is absolutely fantastic). A visit to Swan Road found disinterested, messy wait staff and food that was not worthy of the Vero Amore name. No water was offered, had to ask for menus, no offer of a wine list, grey colored prosciutto in the appetizer..... Not good.

Spend the time and drive to Dove Mountain for the real Vero Amore. You will be shocked at the difference.

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: “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: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

A good as their pizza may be, they just lost a customer. While the pizza is great, the employees have no concept of customer service and customer satisfaction. They are poorly trained, rude, arrogant and stupid. Friday, I had an appointment after work so I placed an order for a pizza 1 hour prior to picking it up. The young lady on the phone advised we that it would be ready in plenty of time.

When I arrived, I presented my coupon for $18.33, printed out from their website. I have bee a lifelong customer of Brooklyn Pizza, however, my experience was one the worst examples of customer service I have ever experienced.

The cashier took my credit card and rang me through for $21.77. My estimate of the charge was $18.33 (coupon) + 7% tax =$19.61. When I asked her what the extra charge was, I received three different and ridiculous responses, one after the other, 1) "That's just the way the register rings it up", 2) "Our prices have gone up", 3) "This coupon is not correct and must have come from some other website", and finally, 4) "I don't know, I will need to get my manager".

My pizza was supposed to be ready at 5:10pm; it was now 5:20pm and I was still standing there. A second young lady came over, took my receipt and coupon and walked into the back claiming that the coupon was not theirs. My response was that she was welcome to look it up on their website and verify it. I watched her hand the paperwork off to a third person, a woman that was much older and appeared to be in charge.

Instead of following through with my issue, the cashier continued to wait on customers, the second young lady began sweeping the floors and the older woman was flitting around in the back, obviously doing everything but addressing my issue. To this point, no one apologized for the inconvenience or the issue and all parties basically just left me standing next to the register and ignored me.

After standing there for another ten minutes, I stepped forward into the register line and told the first young lady (cashier) to just forget about the mistake in ringing up my order and give me my order and that I was late for an appointment and could wait no longer. She turned and walked over to the ovens to get my order and came back empty handed. She now, after all this nonsense, told me that my pizza was not even in the oven yet and would not be ready for at least another 40 minutes, even though I had order over an hour and 1/2 ago.

At that point, completely outraged, I handed her back my credit card and requested a refund. This, of course, caused more nonsense and the involvement of three other employees and resulted in the wait of another 5 minutes after which I was handed back my credit card and informed that the "credit" for my order may take several days to appear back in my Bank account and that if that was the case, that it would be my Bank's fault and not theirs. I explained that I did not order the pizza from my Bank and that when they ran my card through, it went into Brooklyn Pizza's account immediately and they didn't have to wait a couple of days to be paid for my pizza. The manager and cashier just shrugged and handed my back my credit card and a receipt for the credit. No once did any employee of Brooklyn Pizza apologize for the mistake and inconvenience, not once did any of them attempt to comp me for my next order. In fact the never even returned my coupon.

Every employee at Brooklyn Pizza needs to attend a class in Customer Service and Customer satisfaction, both of which are concepts that seem to elude them. To the owners of Brooklyn Pizza: BROOKLYN PIZZA YOU AND EACH OF YOUR EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. I will never order another pizza form Brooklyn Pizza and I hope everyone that reads this post boycotts you as well.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

I don't want to give them any star at all. Ordering from them is a nightmare. It says 50 minutes on the website but takes two hours. It just also might happen that you don't get your order at all because their online order system is having trouble. If you know that, why wouldn't you check if there are open orders online!?!?! Won't order from them again because honestly, their pizza is just not that good either.

Re: “Bianchi's

I tried this place years ago and never went back as I thought the food was mediocre and the place too loud. It can get loud but its really a great restaurant in an area of town with few choices of restaurants. Pizza is just fine, thin crust better than regular. Food portions are hugh and all the food is tasty and reasonably priced. Great staff. Beats dealing with a Brooklyn Pizza kind of place.

Re: “Magpies Gourmet Pizza

Only someone who owns the place would say their pizza is great. I found it quite ordinary and not nearly as good as Brooklyn or Mario's at the corner of Ft Lowell and Stone. BRooklyn is too small and noisy for my tastes.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

Really good pizza. Not the best in town but certainly good. We'd probably go more often but the place is small and gets way too busy.
