I recently moved to Corona de Tucson (Vail) and have heard countless great reviews about Argenziano's. After giving the place a couple of tries, I'm convinced those folks have such feelings about the place because it's the only restaurant within 10 miles. It certainly can't be the food, the service, or the ambiance. I most recently stopped by at 3:45... More

We've been going here for a few years now. We put up with it being so loud you can barely have a conversation. They hurry you in and out even on slower nights, you sit so close to the next tables. The last few times we have not seen the owners and have just found out that the son is... More

Love their eggplant parmesan. My kids like the lasagna and ravioli. The portions are the perfect size also.

We have been going to Argenziano's on and off for years. And have just about all their dishes and the majority of the time they are excellent. I like it also because if you aren't a big eater you can order from the child's menu. Of course then a side salad is extra, but I have done that and got... More

Always a treat to stop into Argenziano's. I love their eggplant. My husband loves the lasagna. A fun place to meet friends or just to grab a really good take-out pizza or pasta. This is a family place and it can get a little loud at the busiest times. I like the casual atmosphere and friendly servers. Well worth stopping... More

Decent Italian food, hot and plentiful. But, the noise level is very loud. People scraping the heavy metal chairs across the concrete floor is like fingernails on blackboard. been there a few times and forget how loud it can be. Not sure I'd go back for that reason. Surprising for an Italian restaurant there is not much of a choice... More

Husband and I just found this gem due to daughter's suggestion. Wish we found it earlier. We had passed it a couple times, saw cars, but never stopped. A month ago we tried it and we're hooked as regulars now. Antipasto salad to soups to yummy sauce on pastas, have all been the best. Had manicotti, garlic mozzarella toast and... More

Agenziano's serves the best Italian food in southern Arizona. Nestled in the shadows of the beautiful Santa Rita Mountains, it is a charming little place, nicely decorated with a lovely mural on the south wall. The pizza is excellent with a large variety of toppings and the crust is perfect. We frequently order take-away. I love the calimari, crisp and... More

My family, to include my wife, my son, his wife, and my granddaughters, visit Argenziano's almost every week. I grew up in the Bronx and Argenziano's is the closest thing to eating in a neighborhood Bronx, no frills, Italian restaurant. The food is excellent; it is like having home cooked food. The portions are generous and everything I have tried... More
