A word from Casa Mia
Casa Mia is the authentic Italian Cuisine experience. Our family moved to the U.S. in 1993 from Sorrento, Italy (a province of Naples). We came straight to Scottsdale so none of our palates were altered from the flavors they were familiar with. Casa Mia means "my home", and just like at home our food is made to meet our standards of taste. All of our ingredients are of the finest quality, from home made pastas, organic produce, and now organic grass fed beef. Our wine list features only Italian wines, and is always a work in progress as we are always searching for new surprising flavors!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The menu is authentic and ingredients very fresh. Selections are different and delicious. Lots of choices for vegetarian and for diners who make healthy meal choices. The staff are friendly and personable. "

  • "Food was cold, Second time we have been there and been somewhat disappointed."

  • "We think this is our favorite Italian restaurant outside of Italy. We were pleasantly surprised to find it in Scottsdale. We have been about 10 times and each time we feel that we have confirmed our conviction. When we take friends we generally tell them to listen carefully to the specials as one can't go wrong with one of these. But we also have dishes we really like on the standard menu. Last night several thought the gnocchi I ordered off the standard menu was the best of the table, but other thought the lobster pasta special or the seafood risotto special was the best. We enjoyed sharing the tastes. We find the service attentive, atmosphere good, and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food."

  • "We are still talking about how good our meals were and have said that we will have to go to Casa Mia more often. We live in Fountain Hills and it's an easy drive. Very definitely will go again soon."

  • "Although we very much enjoyed our dinner the other night, we found it quite inattentive that a staff member (not a waitperson) attempted to take away our wine bottle when it was still 1/3 full. Inexcusable."

  • "We have been to his restaurant at least a dozen times over the years. The food and service have never disappointed. We have brought different sets of friends with us, and in every case, it has become of of their favorites as well."

  • "Delicious food. Will return. Only hesitation is that is in a location far from our home, wish it were closer."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This is your typical community restaurant where you feel like you are coming home to eat. We eat here fairly often and the owners who run the kitchen and wait on the tables recognize us and treat us well. This does not have the hype of a "Big Name" place but if we want "down home" cooked Italian food served in a cozy, comfortable intimate setting this is the place. You can also call ahead and set up for groups (this is necessary because it is not a big place) and everyone finds food they like It is a bit more expensive than other places of its type,,, however,,, we always go away happy."

  • "Sorry, but our first and only experience was just mediocre. Service was slow and the food was very bland. The Fruitti de Mare was mosty spaghetti and overcooked calamari. There was little sauce and a fair amount of rubbery calamari. The 3 mussels were tasty. Dry, dry. The hostess was lovely, but we just won't be returning."

  • "We eat here on a regular basis. Since this was a special occasion, we called in advance and requested a special dish which the chef gladly made as the special that evening. They're moving about 500 ft south of their current location in about a month to a larger space which is good news as it gets crowded even during the week. Family run, always fresh food, Italian wine you can't find anywhere else. Simply love this place."

  • "We have been coming here for a few months and have had good service and great food each time. The place is small, so be sure and make a reservation, especially for Friday and Saturday nights. It can get a bit noisy, but we've always been able to carry on a conversation. You might also notice that the "regulars" will get lots of attention with servers and owners stopping to say hello. A nice touch, but can service for other tables to slow a bit until all the greetings are done. Still, I'm sure it's nice if you are one of the regulars! I recommend this restaurant for the food, the service, and the comfortable room."

  • "I love the food at this upscale Italian restaurant. The menu has interesting offerings, but it is the daily specials that always attrack me. While I like the friendly AMD warm atmosphere, the service was just a bit too leisurely for my taste. I am sure it had to do with the single waiter for the entire room, though he was assisted by a busser who also delivered plates. When we received his attention, the waiter was warm and helpful. I would definitely return and send others."

  • "We love Casa Mia because we dined with them when the family had a place in Positano, Italy. Great family and great food."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed all the food (bread, veal, risotto) with the following exceptions: 1- caesar salad made without romaine lettuce, but with predominantly white iceberg lettuce, and low garlic and cheese flavors 2- calamari done in a marinara like sauce was chewy 3- mashed potatoes and green bean as veggies in Italian restaurant? Served hot. Happy staff. Great pepper mill. Strip mall location, but great interior. ciao!"

  • "My wife and I tried Casa Mia for our anniversary dinner. The inside of the restaurant is nicely laid out and the decor is very colorful and charming. The menu is diverse with an excellent variety of flavors and textures. We started with the Burrata which was centered around an excellent Buffalo mozzarella. My wife had the Insalata Mista and I the Insalata Cesare. Both salads were very fresh and perfectly dressed. My wife then had the Spaghetti Alla Checca and I had a special of Pappardelle with a light lobster cream sauce. Though both were made with very simple ingredients, the preparation was brilliant, and the flavors were simply amazing. We finished with a molten chocolate tart with a raspberry coulis - the perfect end."

  • "We took our friends who were visiting, this was our first visit, it was so wonderful. Great food, great service. We will definitely visit often."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent as always, however, we were forced to wait for 30 minutes for our reservation. Even with Open Table, the restaurant clearly booked more reservations that they had any chance of handling. The hostess asked if we wanted to sit and eat at the bar. We declined. Not what we envisioned with an Open Table reservation. The food and service however, once we were seated, was excellent."

  • "We enjoyed our evening with great food and service. The pace of the meal was just as we had hoped and we felt very welcome in this family run business. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Italian fare."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was good however I felt that more than one server was needed. I felt sorry for the server he was there on his own with no help. The place was crowded which was good but we had to wait awhile for our food and wine. I think they need to really get their act together on service or they will end up losing customers rather than gaining them, I used to come to this restaurant once a week but it was nice to come back after not being there for a few years. I personally won't be coming back though have found better Italian restaurants. Wish them all the best and success in their move to a larger location."

  • "Third time we've eaten here. Food and experience gets better each time. Love the fact we had mother and daughter serve us. Attention to detail is impressive. Lasagna special was rich and tasty. One of our group (of 8) had kitchen "surprise" her with their choice and was most pleased with the pasta dish presented to her."

  • "We had another great evening at Casa Mia. I had the Sea Bass with Artichokes and my partner had the Pasta special with Turkey white sauce. They were both specials and fabulous. Had the Calamari for an appetizer…it was a little tough…overcooked. Had the Tiramisu for dessert and it was the best I have had in a long time. I took the recommendation for wine and it was lovely. We will go back again and again."

  • "My husband and I lived in Italy for a few years and thought we'd never find a restaurant to equal those found there. We're delighted to have been wrong! Casa Mia is a true Italian gem! It has a relaxed, cozy atmosphere, and the food is wonderful, especially their tomato soup! Be sure to order the pappardelle with lobster if available! It was unbelievably good!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Casa Mia genuinely brings you into an Italian dining experience nestled into a sleepy strip mall in a residential section of Scottsdale. Worth a visit for locals and visitors alike. The sweet potato soup special was creamy and tasty, and the frutta del mar was top notch. To me the disappointment was the Caesar salad, in a cereal bowl with mediocre dressing. Molten lava dessert worth the calories. Our server made exceptional efforts to meet dietary needs and was attentive and personable. We had early dining time on busy Valentine weekend, but the restaurant filled quickly. Make a reservation."

  • "My wife and I shared Valentine's Day at Casa Mia and enjoyed a fabulous special evening. Their food has never disappointed us. And their staff does wonders at making our evening feel special. We went there to make the Holiday special and enjoyed a tasty and wonderful evening. We started with the Calamari in Umido. Wonderfully prepared and delicious! The spaghetti Al Frutti De Mari was perfection. And my wife's dish, the Risotto of the day was "excellent!" We'll be back often!"

  • "Tucked into the side of a mountain in eastern Scottsdale is a gem of an Italian restaurant. The family atmosphere leads you to believe that you are dining at their home and the meal was prepared only for you and your wife. The flavors were outstanding, the presentation was artistic, supported by the fact that the dishes were themselves a piece of art. They were colorful and enhanced the meal. The wine suggested by the son perfectly complemented the fish dish, which itself was light, flavorful and unique with capers and homemade pasta. Desert was homemade bread pudding with raisons, which considering it was made with Italian bread was light and fluffy. There is no doubt that we will return."

  • "My poor husband has been to Casa Mia several times, but without pasta due to his gluten intolerance. This time - they had gluten free pasta and it was fabulous. We shared a pasta and moved into the lamb special and the chicken with mushrooms and proscuitto. It was a fabulous dinner. Even the mixed greens were delicious. We loved it."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Interesting menu with a mix of traditional and more pure Italian recipes. Location in a strip mall as is typical in the Valley, unfortunately all the other businesses have closed - Casa Mia will relocate down the street sometime in 2014. Greeted by the owner, waited on by the son, believe the father is the chef. Nice experience, bar seemed lively without being annoying. Food was good, appreciated being able to have a side of pasta instead of potatoes. Well-structured wine list."
