We met friends here and had a wonderful dinner. They serve Italian fare but add a twist to some of the dishes. Our group had pizza to fish to pasta. All was excellent. The service was great. Definitely and nice place to have our dinner!

Don’t go here too often as it is always so busy and without a reservation, too long of a wait. But always good food, especially pizza!

We discovered this gem of a restaurant looking for something close to our hotel in Fountain Hills. It was fabulous. We ate dinner at the bar and ordered a wood fired pizza and the paperdelle. They were both outstanding. It was a great evening and...they had entertainment on the patio which added to the ambiance. The desserts are made daily at the restaurant and they were out of the coconut cake by the time we ordered. We’re going back soon to give it a try. It looked wonderful!More

There were 2 couples in our party. We placed our order for 2 entrée’s and a pizza. Rather than bringing our entrée’s out together, they were delivered one at a time with 10 minutes in between. After receiving the first 2 entrée’s (we hadn’t received...our pizza yet) we inquired as to why the entrée’s were coming out at different times. Our waitress became very defensive and said it was because the “runners” delivered to the wrong table (so we had received someone else’s food?). She also stated that she didn’t have any control over the runners and that she was doing the best she could. Having not received our pizza yet, we asked how long it would be. Her response was, “do you still want us to make it? It only takes a couple seconds.” We said, “Yes”. The pizza arrived promptly. The crust was burnt and the toppings were ice cold. When bringing this to her attention she continued to act defensively, taking the pizza back to the kitchen. She returned with a menu and asked that we pick something else, but we declined to do so. We asked to see a manager and were told that he was too busy to come to our table. She returned with the bill and a message from the owner “I hope you’re not sour”. They tried to fix things by bringing dessert in a to-go box. It wasn’t until we insisted on seeing a manager before paying our bill that the owner came to our table. He really didn’t want to hear our story and never offered to take anything off our bill. He said “do me a favor and don’t come back”! I’ve had many dining experiences and never been treated so poorly! Believe me, we won’t be back!More

This restaurant came highly recommended to us while we were in town for a race so we thought we would check it out. We arrived and my husband asked how long and the hostess (who I assume is the owner also) snapped its going to...be really long. Um, ok, how long . She said 20 min. That was fine with us so we waited. We were seated on the patio, which was really nice and ordered our food. This is where is all went down hill. The sun went down and for some reason they opened the flaps on the patio (even though it was chilly) A bird flew in and freaked out and pooped all over the place. On my husband, our food, the table next to us. It was gross (but its ok, these things happen). But, the way it was handled was horrid. The waitress NEVER came over to ask if we wanted new food. The bus boy brought my husband a box and asked if we wanted to just cut off the part where the bird pooped on?!?!? NO! No, we don't want to do that! FINALLY the server appeared and was like we remade your food. We asked for it to just be boxed up as we had been there so long. The waitress did offer us a dessert. We asked for the tiramisu and was told they were out. (the table who sat 20 min after us had demanded they reserve 2 tiramisus). You'd think that they would just give us it bc our whole meal was ruined by bird poop. It was also wildiy odd the manager/owner never came over. I wouldn't give this place another chance. There are too many good places in the area that want to provide excellent customer service and appreciate their guests. This place is not one of them.More

Great surprise for us. It's fun to sit at the bar and watch the pizzas being made. We are going back for the pizzas. We were there for Happy Hour and found the dinner menu to be very good too. Friendly service, casual setting and...atmosphere. We love Italian food and this met our expectations..More

Waited at front desk for 15 mins before anyone even spoke to us. Had a reservation but they had no table, so we waited. Food was mediocre at best. Bruschetta was not fresh, pasta was undercooked and desert wasn’t very good either. Loud and service...was terrible. Will not go back.More

Visited Fountain Hills from NY and my hosts took us here. Had a reservation on a Sat. Night and place was packed as was the line for walk-ins. Took us 45 min to get seated and I think many of the walk-ins got seated before...us. Apparently this place was on Restaurant Impossible. The food was ok. By the time we sat down most of the specials had sold out. Got linguini and clam sauce and it was a little sandy which was unfortunate. The desserts were really good. Had live band that night in the covered patio. They were great as they weren’t too loud over our dinner conversation.More

TA does not allow posting of links. However, if you type in Google Sapori d'Italia the very first reply will be their site. Good luck :)
