Where do you go for pizza?
Yes, both places are owned an operated by the same family. I agree that the night-time spot:
Torino's Restaurante, is pretty noisy and big.
Since the names are similar, it is easy to confuse the two restaurants,
but try not to judge them both as same - very different menu, pricing,
and atmosphere between them

The Torino's Caffe is only open breakfast & lunch.
It is on the same side of the shopping center as Subway sandwich shop.

For quiet NIGHT meal, I suggest you try Michaelangelo's on MaGee Rd.,
just west of Oracle Rd. They are next to the Hospice and
set back a bit from the road so easy to overlook.
They are our favorite NIGHT time Italian meal,
and sometimes even lunchtime. Lovely atmosphere - very special

Pizza is a favorite for us, and our haunts vary between:
Sasso's Pizza - at Rancho Vistoso Blvd (Safeway shopping center)
Sauce - at Casa Adobe Plaza, on the corner of Oracle Rd & Ina Rd
Magpie's - just north of Ina Road, on the west side of Oracle Rd (take out)
Brooklyn's Pizza - down in the 4th Avenue business district!!!!
(best prices & biggest slices - and the best parking down in that part of town, for free)
No Anchovies - down on University Ave, just west of Park Ave.
Oregano's - on Speedway, I think just east of Swann Rd.

Thumbs up Hi Idaho.Thanks

Thanks for the info about Cafe Torino.
About Michaelangelo's we have been there its good.
Pizza Pizza Pizza, sounds like you and yours also like pizza, seriously try the one I suggested La Madrina, I gave the location and phone # in a post above. Maybe its next to table talk and near Metropolitan grill.
Give it a try, we ask for the crust to be done very well. And we usuallly get just the regular crust, its hand tossed and seems real fresh.Its not exactly NY/NJ pizza but its the best we have eaten except husband says Brooklyn pizza is good.
We had so looked forward to the Chicago Pizza Uno, that was a disappointment for us anyway.
LaSasso, well the sandwiches are good, however the pizza we did not care for, maybe depends on who makes it.
We were spoiled with pizza & Italian food as we are from the east coast.
I assume you are from Idaho?

[quote=Idaho;333428]Brooklyn Pizza on 4th Avenue and No Anchovies on University Drive are the favorite hang-outs of the college crowd -
prices are right, portions large, & pretty edible too

we found Brooklyn pizza about 3 weeks ago and it is our Friday night dinner. Hubby works not too far so we drive from Oro Valley have some Pizza, cross I10 and go to Carvel....feels like back home.

I bought dough in AJ's and it was very good, nice and light, so I made home made Pizza....with fresh Buffalo Mozzarella...nice...
One of the workers, who is from Maspeth (a town close to where I grew up) said to go to Arizona Pizza Co......he thinks they are better then Brooklyn Pizza...gonna have to try that one.
