I only review the creme de la creme of restaurants. This one is the cream at the top. My husband and I have been frequenting this place almost weekly, so I feel well qualified to review. We have always had superb food, and service, although the service might not be fast enough if you are in a hurry. Cooked to order takes time, and a well done pizza takes more time. The proprietor makes everyone feel special, and he knows you as soon as you enter the establishment. The waitstaff and bus boys are friendly and very efficient! The Italian plate offerings, including the pizza, are exceptional. I really recommend this restaurant to fellow Scottsdalians and to visitors as well. The mussels served during Happy Hour are the best I have ever had including mussels served in Italy and France! Consistently delicious!
