Best Italian

Caruso’s Italian Restaurant

434 N. Fourth Ave.

Situated in the center of Tucson's culture district—North Fourth Avenue—Caruso's is the perfect stop for a full-fledged Italian meal at any time of day. (They're open for lunch!) Run by the Zagona family for four generations, Caruso's may have gone through technological updates over the years, but the beating Italian heart at the center of its success has remained much the same.
