Four of us went to dinner on a recent Monday evening. We made reservations the old fashioned way----calling the restaurant (no OpenTable, etc). We arrived and were quickly seated. The waiter arrived and was very friendly, knowledgeable and provided excellent service. We ordered drinks, which were prepared perfectly. (Yes, you can ruin a martini). After salads our entrees arrived. All... More

Trattoria Pina is one of those terrific neighborhood restaurants where you leave feeling very happy and very full. Four of us met for happy hour (5-6:30PM) one beautiful Saturday in March. Victoria and I had had 3 happy hour dishes (3 huge meatballs, delicious Italian sausage, and a large plate of gnocchi), 3 glasses of very good white wine, and... More

Menu creative, dishes well prepared and the best gnocchi we have had. Waiter very helpful. Willing to split portions to share in the kitchen. This is a keeper.

Tonight came for happy hour. I pointed to the bottle of house Chianti $28 on the menu and asked what he thought of it. He stated fantastic and went to get the bottle. When I received the bill I was charged for a $52 bottle of Chianti, not the one I pointed to on the menu. Waiter claims he discussed... More

The food is delicious. The servers are attentive. We have eaten here numerous times the last few years during our week in Tucson. In order to have dessert, we had the meatball appetizer and a salad. It is important to have dessert because they are phenomenal! The Pope's Pillow and the one with the numerous eclairs are just fabulous!

This is one of our favorite places to eat dinner. Their spaghetti is fantastic. Nothing on the menu is mediocre. It is all great. Ambiance is great too with a superb view of the mountains

This restaurant has a nice ambience, bright and spacious, with a view of the wood fired oven. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive, and our server both times, "Ram" told us about the various attractions in the area. I had the gnocchi the first time, which was homemade, and it was some of the best I ever had. Nice sauce,... More

A friend recommended Trattoria Pina and we were dubious based on some of the reviews, but it turned out to be great. We ate an early dinner before a nearby concert and had plenty of time for lots of delicious food. We had glasses of wine, both of which were quite good and reasonable. The 3 of us shared the...
