I can't say enough about this restaurant, a real gem in downtown Tucson. This year Chef Fufi and her Sommelier husband, Alfredo, are offering a taste and wine dinner "tour of Italy" once a month. This month's trip was to Sardinia. The four course meal...More

I don't know who the owner of the restaurant is; but I believe that the manager is the young woman who is there each night. I don't remember her name.
