“Exceptional Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We found this "diamond in the rough" in a small plaza on Scottsdale Road and go there each time we visit Scottsdale. It is small and quaint with trattoria-style decor. The owner is usually there to interact with guests, although he was not when we visited last time and we've had two separate waiters, both were attentive and helpful. There is a wide mix of entree selections and our meals have always been served hot, tasty and plentiful (great leftovers). Desserts are fabulous and made fresh daily - awesome tiramisu and cannoli.

“Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Coming through the door was transformational - like wandering into an old world trattoria complete with a warm greeting from the proprietor. The Cesar salad had a genuine anchovy on it. The wine was a substitute for the one we ordered and it was terrific. Everything was homey and well seasoned. I ordered the special Osso buco - lamb shank with risotto and an amazing sauce. Broccoli was cooked to perfection. I don't know who does the cooking here - but they know their stuff. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the wonderful authentic ambiance and the incredible service and hospitality. This is a very small restaurant. You may wish to call for reservations.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This little restaurant is perfect. My criteria is that the food be good, must have green vegetables and offer specials, so the menu changes. Parmigiano fits all these. Hubby had the special of lamb shanks. It was tender (as our waiter said it would be) and moist. I had the sole, which was the same. Both dishes came with perfectly cooked GREEN vegetables, broccoli, zucchini, even asparagus! We polished off a bottle of very nice Italian Sangiovese... no, that is not why I think this restaurant is great...point being, they have nice wines. We were also treated to a small grass of delicious Amaretto after the meal. All in all... perfect!

“Great little Italian bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Much better than the location would have lead us to believe. We live in the local area and like to try new places. We are glad we gave this place a try. Despite being in a "strip mall" location next door to a Subway restaurant, we had a nice authentic Italian dinner. Having spent considerable time in both Naples and Rome, this came as a nice treat!!
