Great menu. Well priced wine list. Delightful staf.
The food was fresh, delicious and original! We will definitely dine there again. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing with nice music in the background. We have already recommended it to friends.
We enjoyed our dinner here very much. The menu was extensive and we had four small plates and four entrees Some of us took home some leftovers from our entree. The server was very knowledgeable, helped set aside one of the evening specials for our group, and attentive. It is a full mask operation and I appreciated that. We will be back soon.
It was somewhat dark from the outside so a bit harder to find, but inside it was very bright and clean. The service was great and the food was phenomenal.
A small and limited menu but the food we ordered was very good! Service was great! But rather ordinary. Neighborhood is sketchy.
Absolutely delicious food, fantastic atmosphere, and excellent service!
Great dining experience. Very intimate setting with excellent service and a meal to match!
Have you ever eaten a meal that is SO good that you wake up the next morning thinking about it? Well, TITO and PEP is that kind of restaurant. This is hands down the BEST restaurant we’ve ever eaten at in our lives. I say this because the food was amazing AND the prices are incredibly reasonable for this quality of food and flavor. Every dish the 4 of us ordered was excellent. 2 people ordered something my wife and I would normally never choose for an appetizer but it was incredible and it was the Roasted Carrots with Pomegranate and Sunflower seeds and herbs over a schmear of Lebne. FANTASTIC flavors. We also tried a “special” app (again would normally not order this) but it was a cold, Roasted Broccoli dish which was the essence of deliciousness. Our group also ordered the Steak Skewers with a Chipotle Tomatillo Salsa, Cotija and Cilantro which were full of more deliciousness. Our waiter, MISHA, was very knowledgeable about the menu and he was so friendly, patient and helpful in guiding us to make the right choices.
Although we were going to order the Pan Seared Striped Bass, MISHA informed us that grilled food was their specialty so My wife and I split the Grilled Pork Chop and bingo, another huge winner! We have never had such a tender, juicy and flavorful Pork Chop.
Finally, we ordered the Panna Cotta and the Olive Oil Cake. Since EVERYTHING we would normally not order was so amazing we thought why not on the OO cake. The Panna Cotta was the best of the two, for us, but we all loved the cake as well.
Another noticeable distinction for this most outstanding restaurant is the decor. Often industrial places are so loud that you can’t hear the conversations at your table and you tend to talk louder. They have done a marvelous job of mitigating the noise by installing features that totally dampen and help keep the noise level down. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Food was on point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the greatest restaurants in town. Unique, very Tucson
One of the best octopus dishes—with the exquisite Machiata sauce—I have ever had. Ditto with the special, scallops with parsnip purée. Creative dishes with unique and delicious flavors
Lovely meal in peaceful atmosphere.
Great food, cool atmosphere. Went here for a date night and it was perfect. The service was quick and efficient. We had a spectacular experience.
This was our first time at Tito & Pep and we will definitely be back! Everything from the food, service and ambiance was terrific!
Tito and Pep’s has consistently good food and service.
The menu is not extensive, but has enough good options it’s hard to choose.
Every dish is prepared to perfection.
Interesting, modern, unique and delicious- and great cocktails
First time dining there and loved the food. Great unusual selection and everything was good went with another couple and we all shared our meals. So was able to try a lot and it was all great!
Misha our server was well informed about the menu and all his suggestions were on the mark.
Our party of six all had something different and shared. All entries and desserts were excellent! All the sauces were superb!!
I would highly recommend for an outstanding dining experience!!! Five stars
Wonderful yummy New Year’s Eve dinner. Tito & Peps always rocks with amazing food!
The food was amazing and we will definitely be back. This may be one of the best spots in Tucson.
First time at this restaurant and loved it! Very casual, very upbeat, very good food and service! Small menu but great choices for all kinds of foodies and diets. Small plates, terrific for choosing a few and sharing. It was a fun atmosphere, with all ages of people enjoying their evening!
Excellent cocktails, solid wine list. Every dish was delicious. Wine a little late to the table with our entrees and maybe a little loud but would recommend to anyone and certainly come back next time we are in Tucson!
The food and service were excellent as always. The dining room is comfortably socially distanced.
The food was outstanding and will be returning soon! Approachable fine dining with accents and flavors from the beloved southwest. The cocktails were divine, atmosphere vibing with a crowd who likes to have fun and appreciates a creative cuisine. Highly recommend!
The food was just delicious. Broccoli, calamari, steak sewers, and queso fundito. Dessert is worth it! Nice wine list, fairly priced.
Really really good spot.
Slow down as you drive or else you could miss it.
Totally worth the turnaround and crazy parking situation.
Good food, atmosphere and fun place. Surprised that everything we ate was delicious. Not a bad bite.
We love Tito and Pep- our new favorite fancy treat :)
Hidden gem in in Tucson. Made our 20th anniversary extra special.
The striped bass was cooked to perfection and the chocolate ganache is second to none.
The Tito & Pep team continues to bat a thousand. We had the specials and they were all delicious. The fish and lamb dishes were cooked to perfection. The salads and side vegetables are always fresh and imaginatively prepared in a way that seems to emphasize their flavors instead of drowning them. Well done.
I love this place! Delicious, clean, quality food and outstanding service!
Phenomenal service and food
The food was superb - very tasty and well prepared. The dining tables are distanced from each other so we could relax and enjoy our food.
We’ve eaten at Tito and Pep’s twice in the past month and have really enjoyed it. On our most recent visit, they offered grilled broccoli as an appetizer and it was outstanding… best broccoli ever! The Sea of Cortez shrimp in broth was scrumptious and so was the salmon. Service was friendly and efficient. Drinks were potent and there was plenty of space between the tables so it made for a safe dining experience in this age of Covid. We’ll be back.
Attentive, helpful staff. Inventive menu. Some new food combos that work. Can be a noisy space but not last night. Covid health precautions in place --
Great experience, with the exception could understand the server very well talking through a mask.
Great food, eclectic menu!
From the time we entered the restaurant until we left, we were graciously attended to. The atmosphere is relaxed and it is a pleasant place to unwind and have a delicious meal and drink. It is easy to hear your table mates. The food is fresh and healthy and full of delicious flavors. It was difficult to choose just one of two things.
It took a bit of time to get drinks. Our server was not that engaged with us. The food was delicious!
