The food here was very good and our waitress was attentive. The location is superb for after concerts, hockey games, or baseball games.

Lunch visit. Dined on the patio. Server was very friendly, answered our questions and was prompt. Pizza was tasty. Other got paninis, which were huge, and were very happy with their selection. Good location, near Suns and Diamondbacks. Other bars and restaurants close by.

There’s probably a reason this place is easy to get into on a weeknight. Very bland food (salmon and ravioli, and calamari appetizers were all bland). Service was terrible. We couldn’t get the server to come back to refill drinks. Do not recommend.

This is a good Italian restaurant that has reasonable prices and great service. The pizza was worth the trip.
