A cousin has lived in the in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa areas for decades. When I told him I liked Ossobucco he said we're going to Christos. You could tell it was an older, well-established Italian restaurant with the traditional white table cloths and well-dressed waitstaff. Our server was attentive and professional. He took our drink order, came back for our appetizer order, then bread, soup, salad, entrees. All the meal courses arrived in a timely manner.
I was glad to see the house redwine list included a chianti (nothing worse than going to a supposedly authentic Italian restaurant and not find any chianti available by the glass). They serve bread, soup and salad with their entrees. Besides the house special Ossobucco, we ordered the chicken Genovese and Chilean sea bass. All of us really enjoy our selections. Their linguine was perfectly cooked, tender yet al dente.
