I've been here several times in the past, and usually it's been decent. But this last time, not so good. Pros: very friendly staff Excellent tasting meatball sliders! Cons: started with our drinks. Vodka tonics. Unfortunately they do not use filtered water, so the bad tucson water taste came thru in the ice cubes in our drinks. Next we ordered... More

Found it by accident when looking for Italian restaurant. It was busy but only had to wait about 10 min. Salad was large, Spaghetti and huge delicious meatballs. Hubby had Carbonell and it was very good to. Excellent service. Nice very modern decor , no red checked tablecloths for this more hip place. Kind of noisy so could not visit.... More

If you are looking for reasonably priced, relaxed American/Italian cuisine, Zona 78 on Tanque Verde is well worth a visit. This is not the place to go for starched table cloths and napkins. It is the place for a great pizza and a very friendly atmosphere. If you order a pizza--highly recommended--try one made with whole wheat dough. One word... More

I have been here before, but this time I enjoyed beet and goat cheese salad with grilled chicken. Others had the Mediterranean pizza, and an interesting grilled cheese sandwich with ricotta and gouda cheese! Good service and a great place to have a conversation with friends. Server politely gave us more time to catch up with each other at the... More

We had dinner with family and ordered pizza and salad to share with 2 of us. Thin crust and great flavor to the sauce and meat. Salad was large and sharing made it easy to eat.

Nice atmosphere but the service was poor. They never cleared our soup cups and we had to push them to the side for our dinner. The pasta dishes are hearty but average tasting. It got very loud in the restaurant. The soup was so-so as was the garlic bread. It is pretty pricey too at dinner for basic pasta dishes.... More

We enjoyed eating here Service was very friendly and the pizzas delicious We found it quite expensive, but it seems to be the prices all around, and we didn't regret going

Host immediately greeted us by opening the entrance door. (arrived at 4pm after a day of golf) We were delighted to be seated in the dinning room at a table ample enough for elbow and leg room. Justin was our server and was excellent! Justin readily answered our questions re: happy hour appetizer recommendations (we enjoyed Cilantro Hummus & Housemade... More

We continue to frequent Zona for happy hour more than any other restaurant in Tucson, due in part because it is the closest to our house. The service is usually very good, the happy hour munchie choices are excellent, and the happy hour bianco pizza is superb. The weak link always has been, and still is, the happy hour beer... More
