Just happened to pull in off a main street after visiting a local park. Sometimes luck is on your side. Had a wonderful Calzone ( $7.50) - made from scratch on the premises. My wife had a Caprese Sandwich ($8.99). Fresh coffee and bakery treats to follow. We were the only strangers in the place. A real community eatery.

We just moved to the Tucson area and my father brought us here for lunch. Wow! My husband and my dad had the stromboli and I had the Philly cheese steak. Both were excellent. The bread is made on site and is excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. I am so sorry I don't remember the name of the... More

Friday is fish fry - the grandchildren had fish and shrimp. Adults had panini and gyro. Food was excellent. Also a traditional bakery with lots of breads and pastries from which to choose. Check hours, they're not open late at night.

The staff are extremely friendly and the food is served quickly and well prepared. You order at the counter and when your name is called, you receive your order. There are a abundance of menu selections, therefore, should be something for each taste. There is also a bakery counter stuffed with breads and various other goodies. I did not try... More

Food here is "East Coast" worthy. Viros has style and that old world Italian feel with all the goodies that goes with that. Homemade taste,...... rolls are delicious. Vito himself is such a pleaser and a pleasant person to speak with. He is always kind and generous to me. A small, charming place to eat in casual style & grace.

Loved the friendly and welcoming staff. The food was good, just no wow factor. They have a basic menu, but also have a bakery with gelato.

The cheese lasagna was incredible. My daughter had fettuccini alfredo, which my husband and I don't normally like. We all agreed it was the best we've ever eaten. I can't even begin to describe the pastries. They were truly Italian Heaven on a plate.

Great grilled panini sandwiches and standard Italian favorites (pizza, lasagna, spaghetti, etc). Great bakery -- they supply breads & rolls to many local restaurants. If you lack will power, don't go near the pastries display case! Really good gelato too.

Thank Wesley C
