Stopped in to try something different

Was curious about this little place for a long time so finally got the chance to pop in for lunch. Ordered the fish and chips and was not disappointed. Generous portions and friendly service. Will definitely go back to try some of their Italian fare for dinner sometime!

I worked their and got rave reviews on my service from the whole two tables I had. They would not pay me for my wages. I inquired several times to be paid. They would not respond. I did all the cleaning of the restaurant and the bathrooms after my shifts and never got paid. Shame on this place!!! They can... More

There were 4 of us. Everyone ordered something different. The review praised the lobster raviolis which the review indicated they were to die for. I almost thought I would. Apparently, the lobster was bad because about 6 hours later, not a pleasant night at all. The other 3 meals were red sauce Italian and everyone really enjoyed their food. The... More

We will to try as many restaurant as possible when we are in the Phoenix area, but even with lower prices it was awful. Bad service and bad food. It did you that clean either. Try Cobbs down the road.... much better.

We've been here twice. Had pizza both times. Definitely the best pizza in town! Will be back next week for the fish fry!

We are there every Wednesday night for the Spaghetti Special and then again on another night for Pizza. Great family style Italian food, wine and background music. We have been going there for 5 years, love the place, the service and the servers, especially Donna. Phil Vitti, author of 'The Passage' Memoir of a Boston undercover cop in the '60s

Don't just drive by this restaurant because the outsides are not beautiful it's inside that counts. I simply love their pizza! The house special, as far as I'm concerned, is fabulous. It's loaded with the very best ingredients and I mean LOADED. You back up that pizza with one of their house wines or a cold picture of beer and... More

After living in the area for 8 years, I was searching Yelp for new places to try, and took my kids here for dinner. The reviews were right! A weird little place with a blue roof, with the name "Scuttlebutts" on the roof, along with the words "Pizza" and "Fish", I had noticed it, but didn't feel drawn to it.... More

Don't let the outside scare you off. This place is amazing. Make sure to try the Lobster and Crab bisque. The Lobster ravioli is also wonderful. You will not be sorry
