Worth a visit.  Friendly family- owned restaurant,happy efficient wait staff, lovely setting, and good Italian food.  The baker created a dessert called “The Pope’s Pillow” to commemorate Pope’s visit to Tucson—crispy puffy puff pastry, filled with “real”whipped cream and lots of fresh strawberries.  www.trattoriapina.com
