Vero Amore is a great little local Italian restaurant with 2 convenient Tucson locations. Featuring fantastic wood-fired pizzas, a gorgeous outdoor patio, and great happy hour deals, Vero Amore is the perfect choice for a casual night out on the town.
On an interesting side note, Vero Amore translates to "true love" in Italian. The restaurant was certified as an Authentic Neapolitan pizza by Italy's Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana Academy. To be certified, a restaurant has to follow strict standards which include the use of imported ovens, tomatoes & flour, hand made mozzarella, training in Italy, careful measuring of pizza thickness, and the inclusion of certain pizza toppings.
Congrats to Vero Amore for making this list - it shows in the fine quality of their pizzas!
Vero Amore offers a diverse lineup of wood-fired pizzas and pastas. They also offer a number of tasty appetizer selections - try the cheesy garlic bread! The pizza here is pretty good. A nice variety of salads to compliment your meal are available. Also be sure to try out the tasty wood-fired bread, served with olive oil and herb butter.
Everything is made from scratch here, from the dough, to the sauces, to the mozzarella cheese.
For those dining gluten-free, they offer a GF crust for a small additional charge. For those dining vegan, they offer a delicious dairy-free marinara pizza.
Servers are always friendly and upbeat here. The food seems to come out fast even where there are crowds.
The Swan Rd location offers the better ambiance of the 2. The inside is a bit bland and boring, however, they have a great outdoor patio which is just perfect on cool desert evenings. There are comfy couches to sit on and firepits when there is a chill in the air. The ambiance is laid-back and cozy - the perfect setting for a few drinks with friends or a casual date night.
Vero Amore is a great choice for anyone seeking delicious wood-fired pizza that can be enjoyed al fresco.
