Went to this restaurant while visiting Scottsdale and had excellent service and a fabulous meal. Each of us in our party had three courses. Started off with the Caesar salad, and this isn’t just any Caesar. It was light and very flavorful. And they mashed the anchovies so you didn’t even notice them in your salad other than the nice flavor they brought to the salad. The green tortellini with strawberries and pistachio was light and flavorful. No need to share this dish! We also tried the 25 layer lasagna. Believe it or not, it was not that filling. Our main dishes were fabulous as well. And when we got to dessert I couldn’t resist the selections. I highly recommend this restaurant for people who enjoy food!

We went to this restaurant for happy hour as a friend recommended it, and we are glad she did. The food and service by Brittany were great. We had the squid in its ink appetizer and the steak, which was very tasty and soft....wow!!! Fantastic!!!

Highly recommend

Who thought they could improve on years of traditional Italian food?

Clean, beautiful ingredients mixed with a few special touches, a chef that has a great pallet makes this place really special. The flavors were amazing.

Probably the best meal I’ve ever had in a restaurant!

Lindsay and Canenn made a great team serving our table. Thank you both for your excellent service.

Cheers! Hope to see you soon. Thank you. Huck

This is a beautiful restaurant. Indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly greeting and excellent service. Beyond that, the food is mediocre. Almost every other Italian restaurant in the area has better food at much better prices. The only thing on the menu I would recommend is the meatballs. The wine list is extensive, but the least expensive red wine on the menu is $50.

If you want to dine in a great setting, get great service and don't care about the food, this is the place for you. Just another celebrity chef boosting prices based on notoriety and serving very mediocre food.

Very disappointing $200 dinner for two.

First time to this restaurant and we will be back. The menu is part steak-house, Italian and modern European so no matter your preferred meat, fish or pasta you'll find it. We started out sharing the table-side made Caesar salad and the Affettati Misti, which has sliced meats, olives, cheeses and breads. The Affeati Misti is large enough to be shared by 4 people.

The lasagna noodles are made daily and are really thin, so you can get 25 layers in a reasonable portion size. The bolognese sauce was amazing. Everyone at the table loved the lasagna and the portion was large enough that I needed some help to finish it.

The wine list is extensive and the cocktails were innovative and really good. Loved the atmosphere and the spacing between the tables. It kept the noise level down and the sense of space and privacy was really nice.
