“Best Italian in Scottsdale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Found this place through trip advisor and then open table and it was amazing!!! Hard critics because my family is from Chicago and this was a terrific authentic meal.

Mussels and clams in a white sauce and the rolled eggplant are amazing. The linguini with clams, gnocchi, and salmon were fantastic!

Look forward to coming here again.

“Excellent Food, So So Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Situated in a strip mall not far from Kierland, this restaurant came highly recommended as the place where local Italians eat. We were seated in a smaller room, not the main dining room, and service began when a large party of 14-15 were seated next to us. We caught the waiter's attention and quickly placed our orders before the kitchen was busy with the larger group. This strategy paid off, as our wine, starters and mains were served without delay but with appropriate service speed. We did note that orders for the larger group were taken wuickly and drinks and starters served quickly as well, so the service and kitchen works well.

Portions aren't large, but very well prepared and authentic. Our waiter was professional and we enjoyed the free sambuca that capped the meal. The main dining room seemed busy with families and groups or 4-6. The decor is dark and very old-school Italian and we felt it could use an update, but perhaps this is part of Tutti Santi's charm. We enjoyed our dinners very much and overall recommend the restaurant, but wouldn't rush back with so many other fine dining choices in Scottsdale.

“What a surprisingly authentic Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We are from New York and were skeptical about eating Italian in the Phoenix area, boy were we surprised. The food is prepared in a very authentic fashion just as it would be in Italy! The homemade pasta melted in your mouth. The fried calamari were tender very light not greasy and delicious. There were four in our party and everyone raved about the food. I had the bel Francese. It was pounded thin ms very tender the SUVs complemented the dish without over powering it. The side of gnocchi were like butter simply melting on your tongue. They were better than the homemade gnochhi I make and their marinara sauce is also as good as our homemade. The food was so good we we back for dinner tonight!

“Excellent Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

This restaurant was so good we ate there twice on a four night vacation! Each dish was beautifully prepared. Very friendly staff, wonderful menu choices (not your typical Italian/American boring choices) and extensive but affordable wine list.

“Delicious Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We are always on the hunt for good Italian food. While dining with a friend in the area, we decided to give Tutti Santi a try. I was super pleasantly surprised. And don't let the strip mall location stop you. Upon entering, a very nice gentleman greeted me and immediately took me to my table where my friends were waiting. Our waiter was a delight. Promptly bringing us water and taking our drink orders. Bread was brought to the table quickly too. The meal started with a house salad which was very good. I ordered the chicken parm and it was wonderful. My friends ordered the eggplant parm and spaghetti with meat sauce. Both mentioned that their meals were wonderful. The restaurant itself was a series of cozy small rooms. Lots of pictures on the wall of past diners, including many celebrities. At the end of our meal, the waiter told us not to rush and to enjoy our after dinner drinks and our conversation (it was three women and we had a lot to talk about). If you are looking for a good Italian meal, with good service and reasonable prices this is the place. Just loved it.
