We popped in here for dinner after a day on the course. If you don't have reservations, you might get a dirty look. 8/ It's s very plain looking place. Food was ok. Service was good (once we were seated). We've bn here for a week and this was our least favorite meal.

We enjoyed a very good meal here! I had the eggplant Parmesan which was very good. Bolognaise on fresh made pasta was excellent. Pasta primavera and ziti also good dishes. The bread they bring out is excellent. Fresh with a hint of rosemary. The atmosphere is fair. Outside seating is more attractive.

Found this quaint, out the way, Italian Restaurant in Scottsdale, pretty much right behind the Scottsdale Airport. Upon entry we were greeted by a very friendly maitre'd, who showed us to our seats. It took a while, about 5 minutes, for our waiter to come to our table, but we did not mind as we were busy taking in the... More

We miss the good Italian restaurants from the east coast. This was like the old days. The service was very good and we enjoyed our food. We visited on a weeknight, yet the whole restaurant was full. Everyone seemed to be happy, enjoying their meal and having a good time. We had been driving by this place for years and... More

All the food tasted like authentic Italian dishes. We shared the large anti pasta salad which had fresh mozzarella cheese and lots of meats. I enjoyed a Bellini which was awesome. I tasted everyone's dish. The osobusco was delicious. The sea bass was nicely prepared. We ate at 8 and they sold out of the Saturday night gravy. The bolognese... More

Our 3rd visit over the past several years as we visit PHO and it is still very good. All dishes are prepared as if you were visiting in Italy at the home of a fine cook. Not fancy or over the top in decor but you will be treated as if you are family. Also we have enjoyed the patio... More

Thinking about moving to Scottsdale, New York's Best Italian Bistro is one reason to move here tomorrow. I'm a New Yorker visiting for one week, and my son found the restaurant online. For that I will be forever thankful. The food was great, so was the conversation with John, also from the Bronx. No need to review what we ate,... More

The food was great, and pricing was not bad, a little gem hidden away. Very authentic, and worth the effort to find

This restaurant is the best find for a group of seven. Four adults and three thirteen year old boys. It was Saturday late afternoon, a phone call made to restaurant and then a NYC greeting as we arrived. If we were a half an hour later (no table was empty) The adults picked from the nighly highly specialized menu. The... More

We wanted a special dinner when we got together with family and it was perfect. We ate earlyish and John was a wonderful host. We had an appetizer, each a separate entree and dessert. We couldn't eat it all but wanted to try all the flavors. We had mamas gravy, chicken Marsala and pasta carbonara and each was nicely spiced... More
