My favorite Phoenix go to for fresh imaginative lunch and early dinner

The fresh ingredients, most imaginative but simple preparations of local produce, by master chef Marco, who seems to be always on site. Impeccable, courteous service.

Staff here think they can do whatever they want. Went in for lunch was told they were not serving food or drinks only bottled. And greeted by a rude hostess telling me to use their other door for some reason in a rude way felt very uncomfortable so we left.

First, the space is really charming. A little funky, but I loved it. The people working were wonderful ... we talked about where they were from (it seems nobody is "from" Phoenix!), the restaurant and how it got started, the artwork, etc. Just so nice. Not a huge menu but what we had was really fresh, delicious AND reasonably priced.... More

I would actually give this place 3.5 stars just because the food was very fresh and tasty but the menu was incredibly limited for lunch and after all the hype I'd heard about it, I was a bit let down. Glad I ate there, not sure I have a reason to return.

I'll start by saying the food was delicious. We had visited the coffee shop next door the day before and were told this restaurant was great. Interesting type of seating - very large tables with 4-8 seats at each. "It isn't uncommon to share, so sit wherever" is what we were told when we arrived. The service was fine and... More

Great authentic Italian food and personal service. Loved it! Relaxed, not stuffy. If you ate staying in the downtown Phoenix area I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I love Pizzeria Bianco. So this is a no-brainer for me. The little pockets of heavenly bread they bake right there for their sandwiches are too good to be true. I love the simplistic menu. And I would eat an entire stack of the bread if they were served. I highly recommend trying the house made mozzarella. The daily focaccia... More
