Family brought us here for celebration. Wine we wanted from the list was not avilable and the alternative suggested was only fair. The salads and pastas were all excellent. Veal and pork were the best.

Return visit, over priced for Tucson, but not terrible. Noisy busy place but with limited options in the foothills not surprising. Wine list is good, almost exclusively Italian ( it is an Italian restaurant after all). Markup on wine about as outrageous as everything in...More

Entrées run from $11.00 to 18.00. The lunch menu is not as extensive as the dinner menu but the offerings are similar. Also, the restaurant always has off-menu specials at both lunch and dinner.
