The staff greeted us and served us warmly and I enjoyed the quiet midweek atmosphere of the restaurant. The pizza was good but not my favorite in Tucson. Close to my house so the convenience will probably contribute to my return there. Also, the 80s retro video game cabinet is a draw as well.

Our family had been wanting to try this place for awhile, honestly I don't know why we waited so long. So glad we finally did. We ordered three pizzas for takeout and the periogies as an appetizer. All of the pizzas were very high quality and tasted amazing. Especially liked the east side pie. The periogies although definitely not authentic,... More

Limited menu and drink selection. Pizza was ok, sandwich was average. Servers are not customer service oriented.

Conveniently located near our hotel, we decided to try this pizza in the interest of saving time after a long day's drive. It's wood-fired which made us hesitate at first. Our experience with this in the past is there is little sauce and even less cheese, a paucity of chosen toppings, and the crust could easily pound a nail into... More

We have had the pizza in the past and it was good but a little pricey. We decided to try the pasta dishes for dinner and chose shrimp scampi and chicken parmesan. $14 each but we had a coupon for buy one get one. DInners came with a slice of garlic toast. The chicken parmesan was pretty decent and chicken... More

We've been twice in the last month after not eating here for quite some time. Order at the bar, which I don't normally like, but the bartender is friendly and super upbeat. Pizza is very good! Thin, chewy crust that is wood-fired. Nice selection of beer and wine with great prices. The only pie that we felt was not done... More

Dry River Co. has a good bar-type atmosphere and easy ordering at the cash register. We were there for wood-fired pizzas and they didn't disappoint. Nice, thin crust and tasty toppings were delish. Paired with a caprese salad made with Willcox tomatoes, it was a satisfying meal. Our server was attentive and prices good. With a little more attention to... More

I have had quite a few things from this restaurant, service is usually great and Casey is awesome. I have had their pepperoni pizza which is thin crust and it is good, have also had their garlic and brie, one of my all time favorites.

The 2 of us shared a Turkey Breast Sandwich and a Fruit and Nut salad. The salad was good but the sandwich was outstanding. The beer selection of both bottled and draft is large. You do order at the bar and take your drinks to the table. Food came out quickly to our table. Note the sandwiches are only available... More

Service was great at this place. We were excited by the prospect of wood fired oven pizza and made-on-site pastas. We were disappointed by dry red wine served cold, pizza that was underdone and bland and an oily mess at the bottom of the shrimp scampi. I suspect this place can do better, but if all meals are served this... More
