Portions are large, prices are reasonable, and taste is outstanding. Some of the best Italian food I have had in Tucson. Lots of options and well worth a visit.

I stated I had made a reservation through open table at which time the woman became rude and stated she doesn’t know how the open table gets shut off but it was going to be 30 minutes before a table would be ready. She then turned to the bar tender and complained about open table. When she addressed me again she was one again annoyed and inconvenienced to have to interact with customers as she rolled her eyes, huffed and puffed like a child, and made comments such as are you going to wait or not? We proceeded to leave the restaurant and went to Olive Garden a mile away and had a great dinner. Our server was amazing and the food did not disappoint! FYI, call ahead seating, we walked in and were sat immediately

Our experience did not match the reviews we heard from friends. My wife's spaghetti and meatballs was fine, but my dish was covered in way too much red sauce. Our server ignored us much of the time. We probably won't return.

The first ordered we placed was a take out and the waitress never put it in (probably for the best because the food was not good). The kids wanted creamy marinara (pink sauce) and they couldn't do that. Apparently, they ran out of cream. The kids meal came with drinks and it was never offered to them. They best part of our meal was the bread stick. Will never come back again.

It was Valentine's Day evening and the food was fabulous. My husband tried a new dish, Veal Parmigiana, and I had my always fantastic Chicken Parmigiana. The food came fast and Joe's Special Sauce which is an option was as good as always.

We were in Tucson on vacation and I really wanted some good Italian food. Well let me tell you, Mama Louisa’s was like hitting the Jackpot! From the fun music to the homemade pastas this is a restaurant you must try! Everything is fresh and made from scratch. I highly recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for authentic Italian cuisine!!!

Gnocchi dish was not worth even a one star rating. The staff noticed we were not eating it and graciously took it off the tab even though we did not ask.

Post pandemic my friend and I are slowly getting back to eating in restaurants. Service was attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious as always! So happy to be returning to the dining scene!

This time, there was a large very noisy group in the same room as we were which took a lot away from the enjoyment but the food and service were excellent. I love their lasagna and the portions is large enough to take some home to have another meal. Our waitress did a great job though was very busy. Some of my family love the Joe's Special. They have gluten free pasta which is great for one of us. The bread sticks are good as swell. It's a casual place that has been here for many years and one that is comfortable to return to.
