After 40 years, Northeast Tucson’s Bazil’s still delights – Tucson Foodie


An intimate atmosphere, Chicago-inspired Italian and continental cuisine, and impeccable service make Bazil’s once traditional form of dining, a standout upscale treat

There was a time when fine dining in Tucson meant extensive menus, a quiet atmosphere, cloth napkins, impeccable service, complimentary bread, antipasto, and soup. Local old timers fondly remember the days of feasting at such bygone restaurants as Palomino or The Tack Room.

While few such culinary institutions still exist in the area, one of them is quietly celebrating its 40th anniversary. In this era of super casual, drive-through fast food, minimalist cafes, food trucks, and UPS-delivered meals services, Bazil’s remains an authentic fine dining institution.
