We left less than 5 minutes after being told where to sit! We eat out quite often, also we have eaten in several states where we have lived in the last almost 50 years of marriage Over all these years, whether just together or with friends or customers; I can honestly say the only other "Terrible" restaurant we have been...

Not sure why it gets such great reviews. Maybe we just ordered the wrongs things. The chicken marsala was very salty and the sauce thin. The bruschetta was ok. The mediterranean salad was good but small for the price. The worst part was the tiramisu.... Drizzled with Hershey's syrup. So disappointing. We sat inside and it was nice. The outside... More

We were in Scottsdale looking for an Italian meal and decided to try this restaurant. Situated in what appeared to me to be slightly off the beaten track this was a real find. The proprietor is a real character and from "The Bronx." He will guide you through the menu making recommendations as he sees fit. We ordered a couple... More

This is our go to spot for Italain food for lunch and dinner. The lunch has fabulous menu and love the chef specials. How many places do that? Love the pizza and I'm a pizza snob. I like just the cheese pizza. Everything is just right on the money. We had the Italian Beef with gravy and fries. The best... More

While I'm reluctant to let the cat out of the bag and risk having to wait for a table in the future, it wouldn't be fair to hold back on expressing how much my family enjoys this restaurant. The place just has that family-owned Italian atmosphere that we loved so much when we lived in New York. And the food... More

New York's Best Italian Bistro is a hidden Gen in Scottsdale! LOVED IT! (This is Betty writing). We visited there for dinner on July 16, 2016 and were overjoyed with our food. We had the Bruschetta as an appetizer--WONDERFUL! So different from what we expected and so much better! Then Paul had the gnocchi, which he loved, and I had... More

Visiting from NJ. Pizza's and dinner dishes were to perfection! Felt at home. Waitress was very accommodating to our every need & request. Owner welcomed us to AZ, bringing his Bronx recipes which provided the feel and tastes of being back home. LOVED IT!

A little hard to find, but well worth it. I am mostly gluten free, so passing on the fresh baked bread was sooo hard. BUT, the reward was the shrimp risotto. I love a fresh flavorful sauce, everything was perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is casual, but excellent service. Johnny from the Bronx welcomes everyone, and his vast knowledge of food,... More
