A word from Pasta Brioni
If you’ve ever eaten at a family-run Italian restaurant back East, you’ll appreciate what Pasta Brioni is all about. From the second you walk in the door to this Scottsdale establishment, the management and wait staff treat you like family – in fact, it seems that there are so many regulars at Pasta Brioni that many of them may be family. Rich wood paneling and a gorgeous wood bar, white linen tables, stained glass lights and Rat Pack music playing all add to this incredibly inviting ambiance.

  • Service wasn't what we were used to

    We have dined there on many occasions, this time the service wasn't as responsive as it has been in the past. Drinks were not brought to the table on a timely basis; we were never asked if we wanted dessert.

    I have been dining at Pasta Brioni for many years and have always had a good meal. Last night, our server was very attentive until I questioned an up-charge on the bill. One of the diners wanted to substitute the vegetables that came with his veal chop to pasta. The server did bring the pasta but charged an additional $4.50 unbeknownst to me until I received the bill. When I addressed this to the manager, he quickly eliminated the charge. We continued to sit and chat for another 30-45 minutes. To my chagrin, the server never came back to our table ... to refill our waters, to inquire if we wanted anything else, etc. I left him less than my customary 20% tip due to his lack of service. Disappointing ending to a nice meal...

    My son and I ate there for my birthday, and the food was wonderful. We started with the dumplings (appetizer). My son had the Sorrentino chicken, and I had Linguini with pesto. For dessert, we had the tiramisu (the reason I wanted to go there for my birthday). The only complaint I have is that the tiramisu was a small serving, and it used to be large (enough for 2). We would eat there more often, but it's too pricey.

    This place came up on Open Table and reminded me of friends back home because of the name, so I told myself I better try it. It was definitely worth the visit and I would love to go again. They had so many specials and menu items that it was hard to choose a dish, but I was very pleased with my selection.

    My wife and I have been regular patrons of this restaurant and usually receive the best attention and the greatest food. However, last night was extremely disappointing. The food was not as ordered, the service left much to be desired. Ourg uest could not understand why we raved about Pasta Brioni after this experience. My wife is not anxious to return anytime soon.

    Mom and daughter share the same birthday and every year we celebrate them both at Pasta Brioni's. They've changed a few things recently (wine list) and done away with the specials board. They still have specials, but they are inside the menu now. Since this is our tradition, we hate to see changes, but the food was still out of this world great.

    Risotto was more like wild rice, not very good at all. Pesto pasta chicken was a little better but still lacked real flavor. This place was recommended by several of our neighbors so maybe we ordered the wrong dish. Hopefully their pasta and red sauce is better but with so many other really good Italian choices in our area it will be a long time before we go back, if ever.

    Always trying new restaurants in the Scottsdale area and this looked like a gem so for Valentine's Day i gave it a try, MISTAKE!! Service was absolutely awful, it was busy but crazy and we were not the only as most tables around us were just as disappointed. When we were walking out we tried to speak with the manager but there was a line of disgruntled patrons. Sad thing is the food was amazing with a bone-in Veal Chop the best i have ever had.

    This is a place that likely increased their seating capacity to take advantage of the Valentines Day crowd but didn't seem up for it. The table settings were incomplete, the service was slow. They served poorly prepared bread (it looked like the rolls didn't rise as they were small and hard). The food was very delicious, but their were too many distractions to make this are really nice "Sweetheart Dinner". I think it would have been a much better experience on a regular night.

    Decided to have dinner with my significant other at Pasta Brioni on Valentines Day. Service was very good, but food was just ok. I ordered Chicken Sorrentino, and my girlfriend ordered Chicken Parmesan. The Chicken Sorrentino was bland, but the Chicken Parmesan was good. I don't know how the rest of the place was setup for Valentines Day, but in the bar area there was little to no Valentines Day ambiance. Some fresh cut flowers on the table, and a real candle would have been nice for a special evening.
