Italian in Tucson?

ziggylu Mar 23, 2011 09:53 AM

Looking for a good Italian meal for the saturday night before the Desert Class half marathon this weekend. Staying in Oracle but willing to drive pretty much anywhere in the Tucson area.

Any suggestions?

    Have you researched the older threads on this board? I'm not an expert on Italian in Tucson, but I've enjoyed Primo, Tavolino, Vivace, and NoRTH.

      Last time he ran this race we ate at Tavolino the night before and enjoyed it.

      I can never get the search function on this site to find what I"m looking for...and what few threads I could pull up that were relevant were pretty old. Just wondering if anything new has arrived in the last two years.

      We've never been to Vivace so maybe we'll try that this time.

      Have not been there but the review of Vitello's sounded tasty. http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/it...

        Haven't been there in a while, but Cibaria Cucina in Oro Valley used to be a fave. Just a short hop from Oracle.

          According to their Facebook page, they have closed.

          Thanks for all the recommendations. Didn't end up going(or racing) unfortunately but am noting these recommendations for the next time we're in Tucson
