Re: “Reluctant Brilliance

This is Italian American food.
Looking at the menu, first of all, they slaughter the Italian language, then they list things like cheese in the antipasto, carbonara with peas, pasta with chicken, etc. that are 'americanismi'

Re: “Reluctant Brilliance

Thanks to the Weekly for returning the side-bar with vital info if we want to visit. It was a pain to go though the article to find open times, address, etc. And then go to the web to find what wasn't in the article. I appreciated the Plus and Minus in the side-bar, too. Can they return?

Re: “Reluctant Brilliance

This restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurants in Tucson. We just celebrated another birthday there last night. We all ordered something different. Every dish was fresh and flavorful. The service is the best I have ever experienced on a consistent basis. The popes pillow is to die for. Love this place

Re: “Reluctant Brilliance

Trattoria Pina has delicious food and an amazing staff. It's a family restaurant, and Pina and Fedele make an effort to get to know all of their customers. It is truly worth every dollar. I love this place!

Re: “Reluctant Brilliance

What a puff piece! Trattoria Pina is near my house, so I wish it were better, but unfortunately the place is so-so. The food is overly salted and decidedly mediocre, but it comes in huge portions, no doubt explaining why the restaurant is still in business.

Re: “The New Old School

Sorry to disagree with you McSmelly supporters, but Wise guy has every right not to support a business that has supported a Koch brother puppet. Mr. Elefante has every right to support McSmelly, but he has to deal with the consequences of his actions. That being said, I will miss eating at Mama Louisa's as the food is fantastic. So for all you Trumpanzees who need somewhere to eat after your Klan meeting, I would suggest eating there.

Re: “The New Old School

Mama Louisa's has a great menu and food quality is awesome. Their free speech should not be hindered because of one person's bias. Live and let live. I thought we had gotten pasta this. It is bolognese.

Support the local restaurants! They are your neighbors.

Re: “The New Old School

Me and my family have been going to mama's for years. It's nice to see Michael cater to both the long time guest and the new generation of food eaters that we are starting to see. As for one previous comment, DMAFB brings in a ton of business not only for his restaurant, but the entire community of Tucson. If you feel that his political preference is a reason to not dine at one of Tucson's longest standing restaurants, then perhaps your money is best spent somewhere else that doesn't support the community. I for one will continue to support local business in this city, regardless of political preference. Keep doing what you do Michael Elefante!!

Re: “The New Old School

Just a reminder to those who care about these things...Elephante did advertising in support of Martha McSally. I for one don't do business with known republicans and Mama Louisa's won't see another penny from me. There are many other fine Italian restaurants to dine at in this town.

Re: “The New Old School

This place serves a great Italian meal and is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. They make their own pasta and all of the pasta dishes are excellent. The servers are friendly and efficient. The lunch operation has an all you can eat pasta bar and great soup and salad bar. While it is not a fancy place the it is a perfect spot for date night, graduation party, or just stop in and have some spaghetti. I go there regularly and have never been disappointed. The Elefante family has a very nice operation.

Re: “Don of Bread

Personally, I really am loving the new format! If you want to base where you go on one persons opinion of one time and a few items,rather than the stories of the amazing people and places, you need to hustle on over to Yelp and hang out with the rest of the internet trolls! Congrats Weekly, on the great new writter!

Re: “Don of Bread

If, unfortunately, the online version won't contain info the print version does, could you in the future just repeat the basic address-phone-intrawebs stuff in the article text? A little little redundancy wouldn't hurt hurt.

Re: “Don of Bread

As the author, the address and info is in the print edition. Also, there is Google.

Re: “Don of Bread

It sure would be nice to see a resumption of real restaurant reviews. These feature fluff pieces are no substitute.

"...most customers embrace since they know where to permanently find him now." God forbid the author of the piece tell the readers where this permanent place is. Thanks to Firsttimecaller for completing the article.

Re: “Crooked Path

Hasn't this city reached peak brewery yet? Why do you keep using the "Chow" section to promote booze merchants?
