The reservation we made wasn't looked at by staff...we reserved a patio table but was being seated at an inside table until we told staff what we had reservred. Our server seemed to be preoccupied with things other than taking care of our needs. The food was quite good and more than adequate. The restaurant is very attractive and inviting.

We used to love this place and it’s been 10+ years since the last time we ate there, since our family moved out of Tucson.

Unfortunately it did not live up to the memories, and was constantly not very impressive. One example is that my son was served a strong chai tea when he ordered chocolate milk. He said he did not want the chocolate milk after that experience and the server said he would take it off the bill and not bring out a real chocolate milk. However it was not taken off the bill and they brought out a chocolate milk... it was not touched since he did not trust it after trying their first attempt at chocolate milk. There were a few other similar things that occurred as well.

I hope this was just an off night for the restaurant...

They had Fox News on that was visible from our seats. When we told the waitress she said that was not permitted to be on. She had the channel changed.

What a wonderful evening! It was a special birthday and the staff made it all the more special -- especially our server, John, who took terrific care of us though out. The food was delicious (as always) and they even had 'our table' ready when we arrived. We also felt the staff took all the necessary precautions to protect against COVID spread. We'll be back again soon even if it's not for a birthday.

Wonderful restaurant! I hadn't been there in years and now I've been there twice in the last month. I will continue to try other items on the menu. I seem to keep going back to the chopped salad, which is delicious!

The restaurant is pretty much open. Therefore, no private booths. I wouldn't say the food was spectacular, but it was OK. We originally started going to the Gavi's which was located at Broadway and Pantano. The food at that Gavi's was excellent. However, the place was small and cramped. It's unclear to me why this Gavi's food is not as exceptional?

Our waiter was probably the best waiter we've ever had. And we've gone to this Gavi's several times before. All of the waiter's we've had were very good, but this one was even better.

Get the tiramisu!
Piazza Gave is a very pleasant experience with great food, large menu selection, and great ambiance. The hostess, who I think might have been an owner, welcomes us like family with her very engaging Italian accent. She really did go out of her way to make sure we were happy and served well. The cappuccino was wonderful if maybe a little too frothy. They could have only been improved with a light shaving of chocolate on the top. The restaurant was really busy, even for a Friday night, but that did not prevent our server and the whole staff from making us feel like family. The only other thing I can say is, get the tiramisu!
