Excellent cocktails, tasty food, and healthy too. No globs of greasy cheese, loads of salt to make up for lack of freshness as is so common at restaurants. The meats and vegetables were very fresh. Real food done well. Recommend for date night or dining with friends.
Such a fun spot. The food was truly amazing and they were incredible about accommodating the myriad of food allergies in our party. Will absolutely be back.
I had the pork chop and one of the salads the chef had recommended and both were amazing. It’s a beautiful restaurant. Friendly staff, would recommend to everyone.
We will be back. Enjoyed the food and drink. The bass special was delicious!
Delicious food, excellent service and a very cool ambiance!
Date night with the wife and our first time here. Were about 10 min late for reservation, but no issues. We loved the environment and vibe of the place- lighting/natural lighting set a very mellow and comfortable mood. Drinks were amazing, service was fast and friendly and not overly involved, which I really appreciate. They provided for our needs and moved on, which allowed for great conversations with little interruption. Cocktails were unique and really good and the food was simply outstanding and well portioned. We will return!
The chef is amazing! I truely enjoyed the grilled octopus.
Every dish that I have had at this restaurant is outstanding.
Had a really nice time here. Excellent food, friendly service and a really good selection of mezcal.
Tito & Pep never disappoints. We had a delish birthday dinner there and felt incredibly safe with the staff masked and everyone distanced. The black bean hummus cauliflower is out of this world and the bean summer salad is back in its full glory. The steak and pork chop were both delicious.
Excellent food atmosphere and service! Refreshing vibe
Do not be deceived by the exterior of this place. While it is casual inside it has a pleasant upscale Tucson hipster feel. We tried a lot of food for just the 2 of us and loved it all. The house special hummus with roasted cauliflower and cabbage served with bread was so unexpectedly good. The shrimp ceviche-ish app excellant but would have been nice with chips. Boulevardier (a little on the sweet side) and later whistlepig old fashion very good. Tried some local wheat beers on tap and a glass of red. Our mains of California king salmon and ny strip were also very good and had just enough that set them apart from the usual. So stuffed we didn't even see the dessert menu. We felt fine in jeans and shorts but you could dress up too and it wouldn't matter. Highly recc
Every time we eat here, we say, "We've got to come back more often."
T&P has moved into our top five favs for Tucson.
Great food and service. Noise level high. Distracts from experience.
We were quite impressed with the quality of food and the service
Food was good, service great, unique menu, had non dairy dishes, also vegan. Something for everyone
We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed in any way. It is friendly, comfortable and serves a wonderfully inventive, sophisticated menu with delicious specials. I can't recommend them more highly. It is our favorite restaurant for a great date night out.
Great good and ambience! The wait staff was also very friendly. I do wish the menu was a little bigger with more options, but I will have to say I loved my choice of the vegetarian special that night!
Food is amazing, drinks are amazing, and great value!
Food was amazing! Drinks were great! All around good time! Highly recommend Tito and Pep
The service was good. We all ordered the 1/2 T&P salad, it was fresh, however the dressing was lacking. Our entrees (salmon, sea bass, pork chop and vegetarian posole), were excellent. Alcohol drinks were on the pricey side, but excellent. We will be back!!
The finesse and deliciousness of every dish at T&P is always a treat.
Super cute space, attentive staff, and fantastic food. We loved the range of spices and combinations of ingredients. Looking forward to going back.
John Martinez has a vision and platform to carry it out! Each dish is well conceived and well executed. Over two nights we had four fish preparations and they were all unique and delicious. Matt and Raven (at the bar) are committed to delivering a first class dining experience. We’ll be back….
We were celebrating our anniversary and would do it again here in the future. We’d also go back for a less special occasion. We appreciated the menu—savory and fresh. The roasted cauliflower special appetizer popped with flavor and texture. The calamari compared well to dishes in Italy. The trout was spectacular and a generous portion. The side greens were delicious. Our server was attentive and friendly with a dose of local personality. Love this place!
Love the food. Tucson’s Michelin Star restaurant
This is hands down the best restaurant in Tucson. We love the limited menu, which we feel ensures that every single offering will be perfection. The cocktail, wine and beer choices are extensive and thoughtfully chosen.
Service and neighborhood vibe ensure a relaxing experience. Go with a group or by yourself and know you will leave with a smile on your face and money left in your wallet.
Limited menu, but the food was good and portions were ample. Our server could have been more attentive.
Excellent!! Loved the red snapper!!
Noise level high as we were seated next to a large party of about 14 people. Very difficult to understand waitress describing special entrees not on printed menu. Restaurant was overly warm with poor air flow. May have been related to outdoor temperature of 109 degrees. Food was was very good. Not our best experience at this restaurant.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. Love the midcentury modern vibe and the food is delicious and inventive. Highly recommend!
Phenomenal food, excellent service. Tito and Pep is a Tucson gem.
Wonderful experience… food was amazing and the service was fantastic. We will be back very soon!!
I had a nice Birthday dinner here. It was my first time here and the food was delicious!
The food and service were absolutely outstanding. This was our first visit and we greatly enjoyed the creative ways in which all the dishes were put together - truly original and very tasty! We will be back regularly!
It took a very long time for a server to come to our table. It took a long time to get our drinks, the appetizer took longer then the drinks. It sort of felt like they were busy and short staffed but they are still at COVID capacities. Our main courses arrived quicker then anything else and were very good. Overall, it was good, we'll try again and perhaps the service will be more attentive.
The food was fabulous! Creative,fresh, delicious! We waited way to long for our drinks. There was a backup at the bar and my wine did not come out until I had fInished my Entrée.
Very casual place with hip feel and real good food.
