Re: “A Slice of Arizona

On Friday at 6 pm, the two of us waited only 20 minutes. We got the margherita and the wiseguy, and the pizza was legitimately good. One thing about this review, it kind of implies that Bianco has restaurants in California, rather than just tomatoes grown there.

Re: “A Slice of Arizona

With the excellent pizza in Tucson (to name a few: Reilly, Falora, Time Market), it is beyond absurd to wait two hours for the privilege of ordering a pizza.

Re: “Italian You Can't Refuse

When did the original Corleon's close down?

Re: “Unexpected Asian

Tried the beef noodle soup. Not so good. Beef was kinda sketchy.
Didn't care for the ramen noodles.

Won't be back.

Re: “Desperately Seeking Soups on Fourth Avenue

Oh Heather, because you're new to town I'll let it slide this time, but no list of soups on Fourth Ave. is complete without Bison Witches. Their bread bowl and a half sandwich combo with a beer is a must-have!

Re: “A Slice of Arizona

It would be nice to also have had a "learning lesson" about availability of beer and wine and prices for those plus the salad offerings. Also, given all the hype about the place, how hard is it to get into? Did you have to wait? Was the place raucous, or could you carry on a conversation?

I live in a nearby neighborhood, and it was a real relief to see a good business move in. Hopefully they'll stay!

Re: “Fourth Avenue Options

Change happens with the Chefs are replaced with those that want to serve good meals.

Re: “Worth the Wait

Daniel's food is as good as ever. I don't know anything about a reservations policy: is this something new? We've had lunch there twice and simply walked in - no problem. I've had dinner there once and we had a 6pm reservation. The place was packed, but our table was waiting.

Re: “Worth the Wait

I have always loved Vivace, and Danny Scordato is a Tucson treasure, who has endured many location changes. I wish him all best successes at the newest location!

And now the negative: this ridiculous reservation policy has got to go...If you fall for this 4:30 pm or 9:30 pm policy, & then show up for an expensive dinner, while most people are still at work, or taking a nice afternoon nap, and then you see that almost nobody else is seated...or you show up at 9:30 pm, to an empty house, you begin to realize that this policy is a rude, unnecessary way to get you to pay up for an undesirable dining time...

Here is the way to beat the offensive policy: show up as a walk-in, with no reservation. If there is an open table, you might just score. It all depends on the host/hostess. The former manager, whose first name starts with an "E" was an obnoxious gatekeeper, who clearly tried to make you feel inferior if your reservation was not made many, many weeks ago. Even then, he was just a phony snob.

The food and wines at Vivace are stellar Italian, and I highly suggest that you try it out, but beware, getting a table is a ridiculous mind game of useless negotiation. It truly needs to end right now!!

Re: “Worth the Wait

The article is in here twice. But that seems appropriate based on its content.

Re: “Worth the Wait

This is great news. The RM is a Tucson landmark. Glad to see them back in business. Must have had great insurance.
