We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel, for our last night in town. The food was AMAZING, we kept making " yummy noises" all through dinner. We chose the simple salad and the chicken stuffed with 4 cheeses. We did not have room for dessert, unfortunately. Our waiter, Luis, was extremely friendly and attentive. The owner... More

My husband and I had a groupon for this restaurant and decided to try it out on Friday night. We have passed by it many times but never dined there. Great martini to start our evening with - made just dirty enough for hubby's likes. We shared a Caesar salad which was crispy, cheesy with just enough dressing. My husband... More

Exceptional service by friendly, professional servers. The food is excellent. Try the fish specials or the stuffed ravioli, among others.

La Torretta Ristorante is an excellent italian restaurant in North Scottsdale. Family owned and run, you feel as if you are invited into someone's private home. Our family has eaten there many times. Most recently, I had the Lobster Ravioli with a sage butter sauce. DIVINE. I am normally not a full plate eater- but Carbs, be Damned- it was... More

We called for reservations and were told none would be necessary if we came before the rush at 7-7:30pm. We arrived early to avoid the crowd. The decor featured stained glass and classic Italian paintings. The waiter was gracious and friendly. Not the phony friendliness all so common in many places. His banter, joking and teasing made one feel like... More

My wife and I started off with the stuffed mushrooms and then tried to tackle our mains. My wife ordered the lasagna and I ordered the veal piccata. Not only were they both excellently done and very tasty, but we had enough left over to have for dinner the next night. Our waitress was there when we needed but not... More

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Old world fell with an extensive menu and large portions. Can get pricey but is worth it. Wine selection is also excellent.
