Not a real pizza lover; however, this is the pizza place that changed me. The meat lovers pizza is beyond excellent. The secret is their sauce.... Unbelievable....

We have been going to Spinato's for a while now after being recommended by some friends. The food is great. I really enjoyed the cheese raviolis with meet sauce. We both had the stuffed mushrooms and were very happy with our choice. Everything we have had so far has tasted fresh and delicious. The service at the bar has always... More

The best Italian ever! Service is spectacular. Love the pizza. We tried meatball pizza tonight. Awesome. We also tried the spaghetti calzone. Yummy. Caesar salad is my favorite.

Stumbled on Spinato's 2 years ago while on vacation and it's become one of my favorite restaurants in the valley. Both the calzones and pizza had great flavor and you receive large portions for the cost. Dining room is fairly small so you may have to wait for a table but it's worth it.

The pizza was AMAZING. They make their own sauce and you can tell the difference. The salads are also quite good, although a bit pricey for a salad in the Phoenix area. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

We first ate at Spinato's 4 years ago during one of our first trips to Spring Training and couldn't wait to go back. This particular Spinato's is great because it's a short drive from Scottsdale Stadium-a perfect post-game meal. We stuck with the house specials- their signature pizza is a margherita with fresh spinach. It has just the right amount... More

The owners must have followed the Cubs to Tempe for Spring Training. Sure hope they stay all year. This is a great restaurant. Excellent food, well prepared, and worth the wait. The seating area is limited. Come early, reserve a table, and you can go across the street to the Mall if you can't stand actually interacting with people. Leave... More

Took the recommendation of relatives from here, and while it was perfectly acceptable, it was little better than average, The sauce on the pizza was too sweet for my taste, and that dragged down the experience for me,

It's just too much money for a slice or full pie. It's a very cool place and I'm sure they have high overhead but it's high dollar pie. Good stuff though. I go to slices now but I will say the pizza is tasty at spinatos.

However, since I'm keying in the review, I give it an average due to their secret recipe sweet sauce. If you like the tomato sauce doctored with their secret sweetness added, you'll probably rate it high, like my wife did. She loved it, I did not... Too sweet. Our waitress was very good and answered all my questions about optional... More
