We chose Gavi’s and it was wonderful from the moment we walked in until we left. The food was super tasty and very large portions. We both took home leftovers! The staff didn’t rush us as we took our time selecting our entrees, nor did they rush us out of the restaurant after we finished our meals.

Hostess desk did not properly communicate wit our waiter which delayed initial service - not his fault - we figured that out before he approached us. Food was great. Non of this is really a complaint - - just an accounting of our experience.

Their Calamari crema still tastes the same as how I remembered it from the early 2000s. My sister and family lived in Tucson back then while I lived in California and would always ask them to bring me some. About 18 years later, we are visiting Tucson and had to come back to Gavi’s to have this dish….brings back memories

I had a huge plate of food that was delicious, flavorful and made several lunches the next few days. The waitress was excellent and efficient. We loved all the food, and the ambiance. We will be bringing my mother for a visit as she loves having olive oil and balsamic with her starter bread and they put it out in bottles on the table. You will not be disappointed in this traditional and delicious Italian food.

The ever gracious hostess greeted us and showed us to our reserved table. Then Justin took over and served us a delicious meal -- all five entrees were delectable. We all enjoyed our evening and it won't be so long before we return.

Today was our anniversary and we chose Gavi and so glad we did. We started with the fried calamari and goat cheese bruschetta then moved on to the chopino. Our final plates included tiramisu and cannoli. The service was exceptional The food was incredible!!!! Piazza Gavi may be one of the best restaurants in all of Tucson. Wow

Service was curt and uneven. Gavi has slipped since out last visit -- we will avoid it for awhile and return only if we see/hear of improvements.
