Service was great but unfortunately the food didn’t live up to the reviews we had read. Apart from the garlic bread which was excellent!
Cold pasta & the pizza we ordered has toppings missing!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson!! We have become such frequent customers that they really do know our names. The food is always good, and we have introduced out of town and local guests to it. Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant is one of the Tucson Originals and a must-see for anyone and everyone who lives, works, or visits Tucson!!
Glad we made a reservation through Open Table. When we arrived, there were many waiting in line for their tables - while we were shown to ours right-a-way. As the place was packed, our waitress was under some stress and was a bit blunt at times...but we can overlook that under the circumstances. This time the food was only okay and the Uncle Mike's Bread was not worth the $3.00. Just accept their comp bread stick instead. The Veal Parmigiana was generous while the Shrimp Scampi had only 5 medium shrimps. Best thing was the Grilled Veggies.
Great as usual. We visit often and the food is always outstanding.
The food was amazing. We had the Valentine's Day Special. The waitress was very friendly.
Excellent food. Great service from a Tucson Classic restaurant
We had a large group of 11 adults and 3 small children, at a busy weekend time. Table was ready when we arrived, but it took quite a long time to get any water or place our orders. In a commendable effort to serve all the food at the same time, it appeared that some dishes may have sat under a heat lamp while the others were prepared. Pizza was terrific. Prices are very reasonable. All in all, we enjoyed our visit, but I'd probably go with a smaller group next time in hopes of a little less wait around to be served time.
Food was very good. Pasta was outstanding. Sara's service was excellent. Family friendly, but very noise and air conditioning was overwhelmed.
Love this place...Great food, friendly service at very reasonable prices. We make this our stop for dinner every time we’re in Tucson.
Homemade pasta noodles every morning - and you really can taste the difference. Everything is from scratch. If you are looking for unpretentious, truly from scratch cooking, this is amazing experience. This place is for sure worth coming back to. A great discovery and memory, look forward to going again on my next trip!
Great food Great Value Great Service (Shari)
Ciapino over filled with ingredients.
Bread all made fresh on site.
Food was great. It always is. The service wasn't all that great. We were there for about 15 minutes before the waitress came over. She only came back to bring the food. Never saw her again. I never had bad service here before. Loved the food, hated the service.
It was horrible they put us by the bar the food was not worth the price I'll never go there again
Wow ... I was so lucky to find this place & get a reservation ! Great front of the house experience ( hostess & checking in) to getting the check. From beginning to end, we had a wonderful time. This place was awesome.
Actually, I was very impressed with the salad bar and pasta bar. I loved the tablecloths and the atmosphere. It was just a lovely lunch! Our food was plentiful and served hot. The salad bar, and the pasta bar were to die for. A lovely dining experience!
Very good Italian food at reasonable prices. It can get noisy, as it's popular with families, but the staff is friendly. The garlic breadsticks are out of this world! My only concern: they charge $5 for a modest soup & salad bar. But the portions are large, so unless you really like salad, it's not necessary.
The service and food were very good. We’ll go again.
Couldn’t fault the friendly service and the food and cocktails were spot on.
Our food was very good and our server was awesome.
Enjoyed a family gathering which was very special for Christmas Eve staff and food was fantastic
Ambiance as very good as as the food. Joe's special as a bit too rich for me but otherwise a pleasant experience. Wait staff was very good.
