I want to go back again. The food was fantastic, bursting with flavor. The lasagna is made with homemade noodles. Plenty of food on our plates. The deserts are to die for. They take pride in the way they treat their customers.

The food was excellent! Mid-week, evening dinner visit right after the holidays was busier than expected. The food in our larger party did not come out at the same time, so once the second batch of pizzas arrived, the first plates of lasagna, pasta, and pizza had been finished. But it was worth the wait. (However, it stung a little... More

We were seated promptly and served bread and water almost immediately. Their wine list was extensive and the drinks at the bar well made. We had the pan seared beef tender, lasagna, and chicken parmigiana and all were good. The patio is a nice place to spend a beautiful fall evening.

I am going to be fair & nice. The food is pretty good, but the slow service finally wears you down after a number of visits before calling it. Our last visit tonight we just got up and left with a half empty place and numerous waitresses just walking by without a word. This is a pattern for Fountain Hills,... More

The restaurant is cozy and is perfect for the days when you don't want to put up with the crowd down the road in Scottsdale or Phoenix. It's a family place and the husband and wife team are always working. Get the lasagna and save room for th homemade desserts. Marie makes them by hand daily.

Just landed from out of town. First restaurant visited. Great service, food and atmospheres. Pizza is great - as well as risotto. I had the special which was a ricotta gnocchi with a beef ragu. Simply the best gnocchi I ever had.

Grest Italian restaurant on the main drag in Fountain Hills, Sahuaro Blvd. Easy parking and lots if choices for Italian dishes. I go there for meatballs and spaghetti. My wife likes all their salad dishes. They have a nice outdoor dining area when the weather is nice.

The pizza was great and the food and wine menu was fairly priced. The most expensive steak on the menu was $28 but the rest of the menu was moderately priced. Nice decor and bar area including a patio. Late night entertainment outside. The only negatives were the noise level inside was very high and the dishes were not garnished... More

First night in Phoenix and we tried out this amazing Italian place. Family run. Food was fantastic. We had the wood fired pizza. We will hopefully make it back on this trip.

I travelled to AZ from NY & specifically asked my friend to take me there since I had seen this restaurant on the food network. They had a special on the board, and when we ordered it, the waitress told us they were out of it. Then my friend ordered lasagna. Also out. What Italian restaurant runs out of lasagna?... More

Ginacapp, while it's wonderful hearing we were included on your travel itinerary, I'm sorry to hear that you weren't impressed. Especially since we truly value quality and authenticity throughout our space with our traditional family recipes. It seems like you might've simply caught us during a busy time for which I'm truly sorry. Hopefully, we'll get another chance to share... More
