Carefree's Best Kept Little Secret

Very cozy little Italien place. The owner is very nice, she truly cares to get to know her customers and makes them feel like family. The food is of the charts amazing, especially the sausage and peppers dish, my favorite! It's our new favorite place!

This is low tourist season so it was not too busy when we visited Giodano's in Carefree. It's very close to the Boulder's Resort and Spa where we were staying. The space is located within a small strip mall. Inside reminded me of wonderful, little out-of-the-way eateries I have enjoyed in Italy. Its high ratings on TripAdvisor are well-deserved. The...

We decided to try Giordano's after living in Anthem for 5 years. It is nestled in a strip mall in Carefree, AZ which, at this time of year, is very quiet in the evening. As soon as we entered, we could feel the New York Italian ambiance--marvelous. It was quiet with aromas redolent of garlic and basil. The service was... More

What a great place for dinner. Nice, quaint and very warm inside with tablecloths on the tables murals on the walls.. We were waited on by the owner, Adele Giordano, with her nice N.Y. accent even though she has been in Carefree for a long time. We ordered the Escargot which were delicious and garlicky and the Bruschetta. The Bruschetta... More

Been eating here for 11 years on my annual Spring golf trip. Very god authentic New York Italian cuisine. Owner and son run the place like a well oiled machine. They remember their long time customers and treat you as a valued guest.

Giordano's reminds me of a norheast local neigbrhood Italian resturant that serves comfort food. Nothing fancy but good, not too expensive, hmmade food. The homemade soup was fanatic. The meatballs were defintely homemade. Very clean with fast, friendly service. Cannot go wrong eating here.

Delicious Italian food in a comfortable, classy decor. It's obvious that the owners take pride in the preparation and presentation of their varied selections. Generous portions. Excellent service giving us attention that made us feel special. Well worth taking the short, scenic drive from Scottsdale. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a special Italian meal.

We met two other couples at this quaint old fashion restaurant north of Phoenix, Az. Very good menu and wine selections. Food was wonderful and had old Italy flavors. Portions were just the right size. The restaurant was crowded on the Saturday night we visited and many of the dinners were snowbirds and regulars but you were able to carry... More

Now we remember why we so rarely go to this conveniently located restaurant. The food is good but the inexcusably slow service combined with the poorly trained servers make the dining experience not worthwhile. We would rather drive further and pay up for more professional service.

This is by far the best Italian restaurant ever. The ambiance is wonderful and the servers are superb, some of them being family of the owned business. We have never had a disappointing meal. The menu offers many options/choices and it is not a problem to substitute. The wine list is also perfect. Would reccomend making reservations in the winter... More
