We only had pizza here but I can say it was absolutely the best! We ordered ricotta stuffed crust, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil pizza. Yum! The thickness of the crust, the fresh ricotta taste was amazing. I think of this place all the time. I've not found anything even close to the same quality.

After having an unpleasant experience at another Italian restaurant nearby (Melio's - Tubac), this was like a breath of fresh air. The staff was cordial, service and food were outstanding. We split a Greek salad. The produce was fresh and the balsamic dressing was good. I ordered the Celeste, a rigatoni pasta in a light gorgonzola sauce with sweet Italian sausage. My partner had the Mediteranno, same pasta with a pecan basil pesto, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts and chicken. Both portions were very generous and excellent. We finished our meal splitting a tiramisu dessert. The manager and owner stopped by our table for introductions and to make sure our dining experience was a good one. Located in a small strip mall. This place is a sleeper and a keeper. Cannot wait to go back and try other dishes.

My wife ordered the pasta dish that was listed as having kalamata olives, artichokes, and chicken. What showed up was pasta covered with green glop that looked like it came out of a blender. No visible chicken, olives, etc.

Service was very slow throughout the meal.

This place is an absolute gem. Eaten here several times now and love the food here. The gyros is my favorite dish. The food is so super fresh and delicious. You can even see into the kitchen as they stretch out the dough for your freshly made pizza. The servers greet you with a smile and remember their guests.
I don't live in or anywhere near the quaint little town Rio Rico, AZ, but this is a place I would go to on a regular basis if I did...and wish that it was. This is the kind if place that would thrive, even if it were in or closer to a big city.
Job very well done here.

Once again enjoyed our Sausage Pizza with Red Sauce instead of the pesto offered. Great thin crust. Very disappointed in their Antipasto Salad. Probably the worst one we have had due to the fact there was hardly anything to it. Small bits of cheese and meat. Their other salads looked better.
