I have been in this restaurant many times; however, my most recent visit was disappointing. They where out of the first two items I ordered and my wife's first choice was also not available. The salad was excellent, but the shrimp appetizer wasn't very good. My wife enjoyed her second choice but my entree....well I took it home to eat... More

I went here for dinner with another couple. They have an enormous bar with lots of tvs and comfy seated tables. Very friendly and helpful staff, lively clientele. Everyone seems to feel at home here. The food is similar: good Italian eats from mama's kitchen. It wasn't extremely refined - not the kind of food that is decorated with flowers... More

Fabulous! The linguini with fresh clams is out of this world! The service is remarkable as well. We love Va Bene!

There are 2,450 restaurants in Phoenix and hundreds more in neighboring towns, so it might be a challenge trying them all. The one that is nearly at the top of the 2,450 restaurants is Va Bene Italian Restaurant Martini & Wine Bar just west of I-10, off Chandler Boulevard. This is an exceptional restaurant. This past year they joined Open... More

From Randy's attention at the bar to Sergio's service in the dining room, Va Bene will not disappoint. Make this your Ahwatukee Date Night Place!

My first time here. My son and his wife highly recommended and rightfully so, great Italian food. I had the linguini with clams vongole and it was absolutely amazing. My son and wife had other shrimp pasta dishes and also loved their meals. I will definitely be back on my next trip visiting my son and family which is often.

My wife and I spent our 11th anniversary here recently. Our food and service were both top notch. My wife had the rigatoni bolognese and I had the ribeye, which was the special for the night. The balsamic reduction on the steak was delicious. We shared the tiramisu taste like it was frozen and not made fresh, but it was... More

Va Bene is the best date night in Ahwatukee. From Randy's perfect bar service with an excellent Happy Hour, to the delicious dinner with Sergio or Boris helping to make it perfect, you will love date night, old Italian style. This bar and restaurant experience never disappoints. My husband loves the veal and I love the clams and basa fillet.... More

Great Italian venue with expansive menu and wine list. Seems very upscale with an excellent ambiance. The liguini and clams dish is to die for. The service is very professional and knowledgeable. Great place for 2 or a group. No need to leave Ahwatukee for a great Italian restaurant.

Va Bene is our favorite place for just the two of us. The Italian fare and wine bar are very comfortable and often not noisy as we find in other places. I recommend the clams and or Mussels. Accompanied with an abundance of artisan bread, it makes a great dinner with drinks. The Martinis are large. Bon appetite!
