Great Taste of Italian Food In the Heart of Downtown Glendale. Even though we have lived in AZ for 4 years this was our first time her - but not last! The pastas where excellent.We had the Quattro Formaggi and the Frutti de Mare. We also took home two pizzas for later which were amazingly authentic.

This is a good taste Italian eatery. Food was excellent. The portions were generous, The atmosphere resembled on of those places you went to in college to get good food and to have a few laughs with friends. I you don't mind a little noise ( your group has to talk as loud as other groups) the experience is great.... More

Some of the best Italian food. Staff is always friendly. Be prepared to wait if you don't get here early for dinner. They don't take reservations and they won't seat you if your whole party is not with you. Small restaurant.

We then shared :the Insalata Pizza, the Margheritta pizza, and the Canneloni ( House... More

Friendly, helpful service and the food was divine. We especially liked the chicken pesto lasagna. I would score it higher, but the foccacia was tough and chewy, definitely not what I was expecting.

Chefs special, the stuffed shrimp and Italian Stallion pizza was dynamite. Would highly recommend this place. Gets busy - they do take call ahead seating for tables >6.

Had heard about this spot from an AZ Republic post on FB. We were in the area early on a Saturday evening. Small and inviting place, obviously family run. Pizza supposedly the feature but a lot of patrons eating other dishes. We had two different pizzas and a spaghetti & meatballs. Regina pizza with added sausage was fine, although needed... More

Dulce diavolo is the best pizza topping I have ever had. Sweet. Spicy. Fresh. Just yummy. Everyone loved their food but mine was best! Highly recommended!

We have eaten here several times. The food is always good as well as the service. The Pizza is amazing. Everything I have ever tried is good. We went with our daughters family (which includes 3 children) and everyone left happy and full. Will definitely go back again.
