Top Review: “PIZZA! This place woodfire the pizza to perfection! Like most reviews say it’s a little burnt but the taste is amazing and crispy crust is cooked to perfection! Makes my mouth water just writing this review. This place is unmarked and no visible sign but worth looking for(next to crooked tooth)! Of all the things I tried I have to say the focaccia bread! The jam and cheese compliments it unbelievable way and the cheese is not overpowering at all! I will definitely be my new favorite place when going downtown!”Sachi C.

Top Review: “This was just what the bikers ordered. We needed some fuel for our bike ride El Tour De Tucson weekend and found this new place. They have a nice variety of pizzas to choose from and a few salads. We each ordered our own and downed them. I love that they have the cupped pepperoni and San marzen tomatoes and great crust. This place is worth checking out. Note it is attached to the Cartel Coffee shared space”Dan M.

Top Review: “I think this might be the best pizza in Tucson. There was a line out the door, and I can see why. We had the Margherita pizza. Simple (sauce, cheese, and basil) and exquisite. The sauce is perfection in and of itself. And these are half off on Mondays. What more could you want? We also split an arugula salad, which was a perfect portion to go with the pizza. The only improvement I can think of is bumping up the wine selection. We each had a glass of the “best” red, but while priced as a better wine, it was not so in reality. Five stars remain in this rating, because after all, it is all about the pizza.” Judy M.

Top Review: “In the late 1990s my wife and I were traveling through California and stopped for the night at a place where there was a Mountain Mike’s Pizza next door.  Being from Tucson, we’d never heard of it but decided to eat there.  The pizza was surprisingly good and the salad bar was great!  Looked at locations and the nearest to Tucson was San Diego.  Liked it so much I kept checking for years.  Finally, in 2022 a location opened in Tucson.  I wasn’t sure it would live up to the memory, but it sure did!  Best pizza ever.  It’s a thick crust, but light and airy, a perfect consistency.  The sauce is really good and toppings are generous.  I highly recommend Mountain Mike’s.”Bob B.

Menu: Los Olivos Menu

Top Review: “I passed by Los Olivos countless times but never had an occasion to eat here.  Recently, I needed a quick lunch and thought a slice of pizza would do the trick.  Why not give Los Olivos a try?  I decided to get a slice of sausage pizza and a drink.  The cost was less than $8.00.  That’s a bargain in today’s inflated economy. The food came out with cloth napkin and silverware (wow!).  But the slice of pizza was the star of the show  It was a thin crust dough and tasted like it came right off the oven (which I am sure it did). The crust was crispy and has the taste of good bread, really good crispy bread.  Combined with the right mix of cheese and sauage topping, I decided right then and there that this place is worth coming back. When i do, I will try their various pasta offering on the menu. If you’re on the west side or near downtown, Los Olivos is well worth a visit and let me know if it doesn’t deserve a second or third or …?  This is now my go-to place for pizza”Tuyen C.

Top Review: “I admire the style and feel of this place. The food is delicious and the little quirks of it make it memorable. The classic oil and balsamic vinegar with the bread for appetizer is so f*%^ing die for. So simple yet SO GOOD. (Not pictured however) the water is simply fresh and I appreciate the bottle being left at the table- I hate asking for water refills. The wine when I did have some was wonderful and I’m almost sure they had flavor pairing descriptions with them in the menu. I cant wait to eat here again it’s been far too long.”Kairyne C.

Top Review: “We’d been to the other Reilly Craft Pizza a while back and wondered how this location would fare. The restaurant itself is sufficient, but it would be very hard to beat the downtown location. We ordered shared a simple salad, which was simple indeed, but flavorful. The roasted crimini mushroom, mozzarella, truffle cheese pizza was definitely the star. Again, simple, but delicious.”Judy M.
