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

Justin was my server and was great. Not over bearing but attentive. Enjoyed dinner, food was excellent, no bread served and seasonal soup was chicken and rice, this the 4 stars. Kudos to Justin, excellent server.

Sorry to say this but it is true. Our food was horrible and had to be sent back. If you go stay away from the more expensive entrees, veal scallopini and steak. The veal is not the right cut and tough as leather and both come with some horrible congealed dark brown sauce. I don't think the cook ever saw... More

The only reason this is a 2 vs a 1 is that 3/4 meals were good enough to make up somewhat for the poor service and 1 bad meal. We've eaten many times at Zona without issues so hopefully this was an aberration. Maybe if they read this they can fix our problem. My wife ordered a drink where she... More
