The chefs at Amarsi Ristorante handcraft every sauce on the menu, from the lemon-white-wine sauce that adds brightness to veal piccata to the classic marinara that preps meatballs to be shot through a cannon. The from-scratch condiments contribute to the traditional menu?s appeal, which was summed up in Tucson Weekly when the restaurant was described as ?one of those places where I wish the company would spring for more than just two visits.? Servers?all of whom boast at least 20 years of industry experience?are happy to recommend pairings from Amarsi Ristorante?s ample wine list. As diners sup, their eyes can wander from crisp white tablecloths topped with fresh flowers and candles to views of the mountains outside.

At J. Marinara's, chefs create Old World dishes that showcase East Coast Italian ingredients such as aromatic garlic and sweet tomatoes. Dining posses grab a seat by the fireplace or sip on a selection from the full bar at J. Marinara's outdoor dining area. If a single plate of pasta ignites a newfound culinary fixation, ask a server about take-home bottles of their housemade sauce, available for purchase and a flavorful complement to any bare linguine or minimalist wall hanging.
