We were on vacation in Scottsdale and did not know the area. We happen to look up this restaurant on the internet at the hotel.. The hostess met us at the door. She was very friendly and a lot of fun to talk to. The waitress was very bubbly and very knowledgable about wines and the food. The food was excellant. If I would have had room for desert I would have had some of the cake she said was excellent. The place was nicely decorated with murals on the walls that looked like you were in Italy. Well it turns out that the waitress is the owner of the restaurant along with her husband. From talking with them we found out they were from New York. They asked us how we found out about their restaurant and we told them on the internet and they had a good review. The review was true. Great atmosphere, good food and resonable prices. You will love this place and we are going back the next time we go to Scottsdale, AZ
This was the best place I have ever been for Italian food. My b/f took me there for our anniversity and it was exceptional. The staff was great and had excellent choices for the menu. We got the dinner for 2 where you can pick like 5 items each. It seems like a lot of food but it's really not. I would recommend the 4 cheese ravioli and the lobster ravioli that my bf had and he said it was the best he's ever had. Also for dessert, we did the berry terimisu which was the best I have ever had. What was even better was the money for the dessert went to support Make A Wish Foundation which I think is a great idea. I highly recommend this place and I would go back again.
A group of five of us stopped in on Friday after work. It is an AWESOME happy hour! The Rosa Sangria is to die for, and all of the other drinks looked great, as well. The food is really what made this place special. Very reasonable prices (especially for Scottsdale) and a good amount of food. I recommend the Blackened Shrimp, the Artichoke Dip, and the Eggplant Fries (my favorite). The deserts are fabulous (there was a caramel/pumpkin cheesecake desert that was to die for, the lava cake was amazing, too!).
