“Great pizza”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Hanny's is in an old clothing store. Established in the '20's Hanny's Clothes sold Hart, Schafner & Marx suits -- the top of the line for those days. That business closed in the '80's. Eventually, the restaurqnt was established. The building looks like it was just about the only old building in that part of downtown to escape the wrecker's ball and become a high-rise something. The entrance is on 1st Street and the side is on Adams. Most of the floor is taken up by a bar (three sides of a rectangle). They sell mixed drinks, beer and wine. I had a Stone Levitation beer. Who could resist a name like that? It had a grapefuity flavor and was excellent.

The pizza is wonderful. The crust is like a giant oval cracker. The sauce is thinly spread but excellent. I had the Americano, which is Italian sasage, mushrooms, onions, and one more thing which I forgot. It was about a foot from end to end but only 6 inches or so wide. With the cracker-like crust, it went down very easily. As I recall, it was $13.50, and the beer was $5.50. Hanny's is about a block from the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. Along with Steve's Green House Grill, also on Adams, it is the closest to the hotel.

“Metro healthy Italian cuisine”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

An enjoyable contemporary atmosphere with a great drink menu. Must try the pomegranate julep. Has a unique refreshing
Taste. I had it with bourbon & loved it!
The pizza is all fresh ingredients with a cracker crust & enough to share. Try the cauliflower Calabria appetizer. Healthy & flavorful! I will go back for the great service too.

“Great find in downtown phoenix”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The restaurant is in an old men's clothing store converted to a modern hip restaurant and bar. They have covered the old elevator shaft with glass so you can stand on it and see the interior of the shaft. The booths lean back for a very relaxing intimate time. The dj is amazing and plays uplifting fun vibe music. Very moder decor and lighting. Tables very close together, but encourages interaction and conversation with interesting people. Drinks and wine are very enjoyable. Food is good. I enjoyed the flatbread pizza bianci, bruchetta with companata and most of all, donuts with chocolate sauce. I went on a Friday nite at about 7pm. Terrific experience. I highly recommend it for a fun time.

“Snotty service, poor value, look elsewhere!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I honestly don't understand how this place stays in business. I have worked and played in downtown Phoenix for 20+ years; this metrosexual martini bar just isn't a fit. Perhaps things change late-night - but it's been basically empty on most day and evening occasions when I pass by. I even gave them a second try ... so "shame on me," I suppose.

Down to business: If your idea of an enjoyable business lunch or pre-/post-event dinner consists of pimply-faced, snotty/pretentious/arrogant servers, overpriced, underflavored, miniature entrees, a crowd of see-and-be-seen poseurs who couldn't find their way to Scottsdale, and Salon-de-City-Morgue ambience, this may be your place - let your inner DB run free.

This place is located within walking distance of four downtown hotels, and obviously caters to the traveler/tourist visitors (who may be accustomed to the customer-service sensibilities of the coasts) who probably won't be back - they CAN'T be relying on repeat business.

I was there ... it made a better department store in its day.
