“High End for Date Night”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

My wife and I have dinning at Gianofranco's for years. If you are ever in the North Scottsdale area, you will want to make dinner reservations here. The restaraunt is charming, quaint, very elegant decor. Their Italian menu is exquisite and the wine list is extensive. The staff are very sophisticated and knowledgable. Say hello to our friend and owner Gian. He loves to make his guest feel at home. You can usually listen to live piano or guitar music in the bar. Very romantic atmosphere. - Ciao

“Don't bother. This is not Italian.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The service was glacial and inattentive. The food was salty and mediocre. Do not come from NYC area and expect anything Italian in this place.

“Meh”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Coming from NY I have to say this was quite unimpressive. There are not a lot of restaurant choices in the area and we wanted Italian. Service was good but the food was nothing special.

“Family Dinner”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Group of 8 with a few children included. We were seated in a great spot - easy to get in and out if needed. The food was fresh, tasty and perfect temperature. The service was polite, timely, professional.

Overall great dining experience. We were tempted to have a second dinner there during our week long stay, but our plans didn't permit.

“Thoroughly enjoyed our meal, especially the pasta”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We booked a table at the last minute even though the restaurant was packed while we were there. We were seated promptly and found the service staff very attentive throughout the meal. There was such a great selection of the nightly specials that we never opened the menu...and we were not disappointed with our choices. Two of us had pasta (veal pappardelle, squash ravioli) which we both loved. The salmon special was very good but a bit pricey. The apps and desserts were also good. We look forward to coming back when we visit Scottsdale!
