There are many Italian restaurants in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area but this is one of the best. Moderate prices for delicious homemade dishes. A popular place but they do take reservations. They are open for lunch M-F only. Dinner is available every day but Sunday.

My husband and I were in the area for 16 days and found this restaurant to be great. We took the advise of other trip advisor members and found a seat in the bar. The menu is different than the regular menu but you may order from both. The food was delicious and came out hot. You can't go wrong... More

The best selection of Veal dishes I experienced in resent time. Located in a strip center in the downtown area of Scottsdale. Very busy restaurant many locals as regulars. They have been in the same location for 25 years. Lots of parking, great atmosphere and good service. Uncle Sal's is what you expect an authentic Italian restaurant to feel like.

We ate her on New years Eve and truly enjoyed the vast Italian menu. The food was fantastic and service was very good! We tried several dishes and all were fantastic! We returned another evening and enjoyed the large selection of bar food.

At 4 in the afternoon the bar was full so we were seated in the dining room which has it's own menu. We had hoped to be seated in the bar which has a less pricey menu. Food and service was excellent but we thought the price was high for the food we ordered.

On a visit to Scottsdale, my son and I were encouraged to dine at Uncle Sal's. Though we didn't have a reservation, the affable hostess said there'd be just a 15 minute wait, and she was right. Our salads were prosaic, chopped romaine with one cherry tomato and shredded mozzarella. The warm garlic bread was excellent. The entrees were wonderful.... More
