We had a fabulous St. Patrick's Day dinner here! The corned beef was the leanest, most delicious and most moist that we've ever eaten in a restaurant! The cabbage and carrots were good, the concannon was great (first time we've ever had that very Irish dish in a restaurant!), and the house made Irish soda bread was light and delicious! Oh, and the Irish stepdancers added a very authentic touch, great dinnertime theater. Bravo, Pastiche, we'll definitely be back - many, many times! More

Alisa did a great job taking care of us. The food is always outstanding. Love the flavors in the farmers market salad and the beef short rib ravioli is amazing. I am a former chef and waiter so I love good food and appreciate great service. More

We had a grand time dining with family from Rochester, New York. My sister in law and I each enjoyed the Vivace speciality excellent sliced filet mignon on toast in Marsala sauce. My wife delighted in her favorite Red Bird Chicken in creme sauce, while her brother was very pleased with his choice of striped sea bass. Stuart took great care of us, today ncluding provision of take out tiramisu for four along with our leftovers. We are always pleased to bring friends and family to Vivace for fine times and memorable meals. We’ll be back! More

Tequila Factory at Casino Del SolTequila Factory at Casino Del Sol
Mexican | West Tucson, Tucson

The Tequila Factory more than lives up to its name with more than 120 varieties of fiery flavor gracing its shelves. This is an authentic cantina experience. Great food, fun people, and a rustic feel of old Mexico are all mixed together at Casino Del Sol. Order signature, family recipes and homemade soups and salads. Traditional and unique entrees served fresh and enticing. Go ahead, order another margarita, no one’s countingMore

Discover Tucson

Considering that Tucson is the birthplace of the chimichanga, it should come as no surprise that Mexican restaurants are prolific in this city. Tucson falls right on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, and the cooking style in the city represents what's popular throughout this desert region. Sonoran dishes are typically based on beans, corn tortillas, cheese, peppers, and meat. Of course, although Tucson is distinctly Sonoran, it is also American, and that means you're sure to find a melting pot of cuisines within the city. When you're ready to branch out from Southwestern fare, try seafood or steak. Thin-crust pizza hits the spot when you want a familiar dish, and to top off your meal, homemade gelato is a local favorite.
