Located in streets of the greater Tucson area you can find our truck and taste our legendary flavors.
Every now and again something comes along that shakes up your entire world, for us it was when we met our beautiful daughter Riley. We knew that the late hours of a traditional job in the restaurant of a luxury resort would take time away from watching our little girl grow. Well, mama always said do what your good at, and for us that thing was creating a unique and memorable dining experience for family and friends. When a friend of ours had mentioned the idea of a food truck, we thought it was a crazy idea (of course those are usually the best ones.) We were very skeptical of kitchens on wheels simply because you could not see the kitchen or the cooks working, leaving us to worry about kitchen cleanliness and the safety standards held in a hidden kitchen. We thought if only there could be a truck where everything could be seen, where there was nothing to hide, a truck where the food and chefs were seen.The Ciao Down truck is our dream come true, a truck with an open concept kitchen where customers can watch a pizza go from dough to oven to mouths in less than 2 minutes.
The Ciao Down truck began its life in Denver Colorado where we began our journey into the world of great pizza. After meeting with local pizza shop owners in Denver and discovering the vast world of pizza, it was time to hit the road in our new mobile kitchen to bring our signature flavors back to Tucson.
“If you're burning you're learning” All of my restaurant experience had always been from a front of the house perspective never in the actually kitchen its self. I knew great flavors and that was about it. Luckily for us, we know many great chefs, and my father is one of them. Without him the whole thing would not taste as great as it does today. Hundreds of hours, hundreds of dough trials and a lot of love went into our signature dough recipe. When Senior is on the truck make sure to give him a shout out for the mouth watering pizza your tummy craves.
