“Very good food and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were very impressed with Tommy V's. Since everyone in my party ordered almost the same things, I can't give a fair review of the menu as a whole. I had the manila clams and linguini, and it was just what I hoped for. The menu promised flavors of garlic, lemon, and wine, and that's what I got. Pasta cooked al dente. Only defect: Not nearly enough clams. Pear salad was very good, and so was the butternut squash soup. I thought the service was excellent. The waiter was there whenever he was needed. He recommended a good glass of wine, and contrary to what often happens, he recommended an inexpensive glass that was exactly what I was looking for, and did not push something more expensive. In any case, the mini-carafe of wine was enough for almost two classes, so the wine was a true bargain.

We ate outdoors, which is what many people chose to do on a warm evening. One defect is that there is not nearly enough light. Just a little ambient light would have helped, or bigger candles. The indoor space looked very attractive. We were comped one dessert, and it was very tasty. I would recommend saving room for dessert, as all of the choices were tempting.

The location is smack in the middle of Old Town, and parking is a problem: even though they have their own lot, it fills up early. But most of the hotels are within a mile, if you wanted to walk.

I went to Tommy V's and there was a wine dinner going on. What luck!

It was delicious, fun and above expectations.

Thanks for the great experience!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

We ate here based on distance from our hotel and tripadvisor reviews. We were wearing jeans and casual shoes after a long day at spring training and felt very comfortable. Service was great, and food was great. I had the pasta trio which was recommended by the waiter, and was outstanding, and my husband had the capellini which he enjoyed very much. We would eat here again.

“Casual and modern Italian approach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Tommy V's is well-located in Old Scottsdale and provides a welcome relief to the kitschy Western roadhouse fare that is prevalent in the area. Service is efficient and friendly and the menu features a good selection of Italian-based selections with an updated approach. It has a relaxed, fun vibe as well.

“Girls Night Out for 50th Bday Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We planned a girls dinner for our friend's 50th bday. The owner could not have been kinder. We planned a three course meal with three different entree choices. They provided a beautiful cheese platter outside for us to start. We used a room that you can block off from the rest of restaurant for our dinner. Very nice and private. The salad Pear Baby Greens was so good and quite large for a starter salad. All of the three dinner choices were delicious - pan seared salmon, chicken marsala or
Eggplant Torta & Butternut Squash Ravioli. We bought a cake with us and they cut and placed on each persons plate decorating with a red sauce as if they had made the dessert for us. The service was perfect. They were extremely attentive and made sure our wine glasses were always full. Good thing we had a desigated driver! If you are in Scottsdale I highly recommend Tommy V's. We will be back!
