Whether you are looking for a family meal, or a romantic dinner for two, you will find just the right ambiance at any of these quality restaurants.
Caruso’s Italian Restaurant
434 North 4th Avenue
Tucson, Arizona 85705
Caruso’s is located in the heart of the 4th Avenue shopping district. They are proud to have been family owned and operated since 1938. That’s four generations of the Zagona family preparing homemade Italian food. Open Tuesdays through Thursdays and Sundays from 11:30am-10pm and Fridays and Saturdays 11:30am-11pm, they offer a casual dining experience, or order ahead to pick up and go.
The menu offers a full a large selection, including vegetarian options.
Lunch Entrees are served from 11:30am-3:30pm and cost only $7.45 per person.
Dinner Entrees vary in price, from the Antipasto at $5.75 to $12.95 to the various seafood items at $11.50 or less.
The most delicious part of the menu is the homemade deserts, ranging from $3.50 to $3.95.
This is a unique restaurant in a unique section of town, and my personal favorite
Verona Italian Restaurant
“Taste of Northern Italy in Tucson”
120 South Houghton Road
Tucson, AZ 85748-6731
(520) 722 2722
Open Tuesday through Sunday from 4pm to 9pm, they open on Sundays 10am through 2pm for breakfast.
One of the least known restaurants on the eastside of Tucson, this is perhaps the most underrated on my list. Verona’s offers not only a full dinner menu from antipasto to cannoli at great rates, but a full champagne breakfast on Sundays.
For $15.99, you enjoy a 4 hour full breakfast, or help yourself to the omelet bar.
Though it’s not well known, this is a quality restaurant for family dining.
