Disappiointed, Disappointed – Had dinner there on Labor Day and noticed the prices have been raised at least 15%. Gavi was already more highly priced than most other Italian restaurants.
I ordered sausage and peppers over pasta and the sausage was overdone and dry. The sauce was not seasoned as usual. I asked for my pasta to be served al dente and it came cold and soft.
I eat at Gavi at least once a month and have noticed a definite trend in the wrong direction.
My wife's dish wasn't up to the normal standard either.
Hopefully they will reexamine their pricing and correct the kitchen problems quickly.
Way Over rated – It seems that the Italian soccer team have no T-shirts left for them to put on! All their T-shirts are hung on the walls of Gavi's. What is the theme of this show of shirts and random display of deflated soccer balls is incomprehensible to me.
Forget about the ambience. Let's talk service. During our rushed one-hour dinner, an arrogant condescending server who was the least interested in serving or even listening, made our experience as annoying as possible. The server was even pushy when it came to ordering drinks, trying to pressure those who chose to drink water to order a beer or a wine! Is this is the Italian hospitality? I dont think so.
Luckily for Gavi's that the food was fine, thanks to the chef, wherever of Mexico he is from.
Fantastic! – My favorite Italian in the city. The soccer decor lends a unique feel. Fantastic food served very promptly. The seafood dishes are especially amazing. Lengthy wine list, well stocked bar, and outstanding tiramisu. Oh, and watch out for Krista. She's the best server you've ever had.
Overrated! – I ate at Gavi once and that was enough! It took forever and a day to get seated. So, I expected a lot. The dinner was ok- my mother has made better. The dessert- Tiramisu- was horrible! Do they not know that cream cheese is not an acceptable substitution?? That is disgusting! What a waste of my time and money! I highly recommend that the owners take a trip to Italy and be reminded of what true Italian food tastes like.
Excellent food – Crowded and noisy. But the food is beyond anything I've found around town.
A little taste of home. – For the first time since we move to Tucson, (6 years ago) from Boston, we were able to sit and enjoy an awesome Italian dinner without having to fly home. The food was great and the people who waited on us were prompt and always came to the table with a smile. My husband and I will be visiting Gavis' regularly.
not that good – to crowded .food over priced long wait to get in. Maybe I expexted more seeing how it came highly recomended
Decadent – Gavi's has a broad selection of Italian dishes - something for everyone. The ambiance is another reason I go to Gavi's.
SIMPLY THE BEST – As a regular customer of Gavi's for almost 4 years I am slightly biased, but after going to most of the Italian Restaurant's in Tucson, I now only go to one - Gavi's.
From the time you are seated and are served the appetizer till you pay your bill it is a great experience.
Belissimo – In short, the Southern Italian cusine of Gavi's is not only excellent, but true to the area of Italy that spawned it. I have spent many days tooling down the Amalfi drive and frequenting the seaside establishments, and Gavi's fare is more than comparable. We are indeed very lucky to have such cuisine in Tucson.
