“Italian Deliciousness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Tommy V's is a wonderful break from Southwest and Mexican fare in downtown Scottsdale. The risotto was sheer perfection sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts and infused with wild mushrooms-we all shared a half order as an appetizer. My entree, the eggplant torta with butternut squash ravioli was like eating eggplant parmesan on steroids--creamy and wonderful. The linguini with clam sauce was a bit of a disappointment--much too fishy. We would go back in a minute.

“Really a nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Our friends took us here for dinner before a show at The Scottsdale Center for the Performing arts. The restaurant is large and clean looking with a hip edge. I have to start by saying the service staff were fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the food, attentive and interesting to talk too. The food was delicious. Husband had the Charcuterie Platter and it was divine. I had the Caesar Salad, nicely dressed, and the Short ribs with stuffed Gnocchi. It was really nice, not too heavy. Will absolutely be returning.

“Very good, but not excellent.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was surprisingly quiet at Tommy V's on a recent Saturday evening (Less than 1/2 full when we departed at 8:30). Sat outside which was very comfortable with the cool flame style patio heater. Service was outstanding but the food was mixed. Two of the meals (chicken marsala and pasta trio) were just OK. High quality but kind of bland. The two other meals (cioppino and salmon) were excellent. Overall, a nice, reasonably priced restaurant with excellent service.

“Outstanding and we visited on two occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Hotel in Old Scottsdale and this restaurant is just over the road in the old part of town. On the first occasion at the beginning of our stay in Scottsdale we were very warmly greeted by the owner who is absolutely charming. The weather was good and we were taken to a table outside. That evening and indeed on a subsequent visit there was a bass and piano jazz duo playing who were superb. The whole atmosphere was really good as was the food and service. It is a modern building from outside and that is continued on the inside. It has a very buzzy atmosphere and clearly people like to sit at the bar as well as sitting in the restaurant itself. The wine list is extensive with European, Old World and New World wines and if you take your time, you can find some very satisfactorily priced little gems.
We returned at the end of our holiday to Scottsdale and we had been so impressed by our first visit that we decided to revisit. We were not disappointed. We were impressed by the fact that almost 2 weeks later the owner had remembered us even from a telephone call to see if there was space available at the restaurant and on our arrival. All in all, it was very impressive. Again, there was a double bass and piano duo to entertain called the Crawford Brothers Jazz (Charles and Jake Crawford) who were superb and helped to make the evening so very enjoyable. On this occasion we sat inside . We shared the carpaccio tenderloin which was extremely good and then had the Filet Mignon and Fettuccine Bolognese both of which were superb. The service was very friendly, prompt but not overbearing.
If you are staying at the Hilton Garden Hotel or the Marriot Hotel nearby do not miss this restaurant. We would strongly recommend it.

“Still Great!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

We are back and pleased that our favorite eating spot in Scottsdale has not lost it's edge. Our first stop after our four day trek from Michigan was Tommy V's---and it was as great as we remembered. Some menu changes in the five months that we were gone have added to the culinary diversity. The majority of the servers who were there when we left in May are still on staff and continue to offer first class service and the new faces are at the high level of quality of the veteran serving crew.

The wine inventory continues to be very impressive. The ambience and feel continues to resemble restaurants in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Fransisco and other "Big City" eateries! A real treasure for Scottsdale.

Great food, great ambience, great wine and great service--which we highly recommend!!!
