We were treated like family from the moment we walked in! We sat at the bar to have dinner. The Shishito peppers were too salty. They had them remade. The remade peppers were also too salty. We sent those back as well. They tried them and agreed. We liked our server so much we told him (Colby) to just order for us. All of the food he brought out was impeccable! 5 stars!! More

a quaint little homey place that is bright and cheerful. My party of 4 enjoyed all of the dishes we selected and all said that we would return. There is quite a selection of items which include homemade pastas, sauces and entrée items. The portions were just adequate and I would have liked if they were a bit bigger. Everything was cooked to perfection -- pasta al dente and everything flavorful. We shall definitely return. More

What a great find! We have been wanting to find a good place to have lunch or dinner. We are in Gilbert but frequent Scottsdale for good food. A friend was in from out of town and she enjoy many of the same cuisine as we do. The food is delicious and the portion size is perfect for sharing a couple of different things. Our waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. Our only complaint was the music was just a bit too loud for easy conversation. We will be coming back. More
