The house made pasta was a hit! I had the pasta trio and could not decide which was better, the Gorgonzola gnocchi, the walnut tortellini, or the cheese stuffed ravioli. We started with the bruschetta which was also delicious. The olives on the side were a nice touch. We finished with a complimentary Sambucca con mosca which was a nice surprise.

A friend introduced us to
A friend introduced us to Tutti Santi several years ago, and we always choose it for special occasions. We are retired and live nearby in Sun City. We are confident that the food will be good and the service is always excellent, so entertaining friends and/or family from the Midwest makes it a good choice for us. Local friends know the reputation of the restaurant as well and happily accept invitations from us to go there.

Perhaps the best Italian dining experience we have had in the valley. Tutti Santi by Nina in Glendale will become one of our regular places to eat!

The food was very good on average. My wife's pasta vesuviania was very rich and my chicken parmesan was average. The salad was a little below par for us. In an Italian restaurant we expected a nice Caesar salad The bread was delicious. We like your house wine. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. We probably eat there once a year. We realize how tough the competition is. The two people we were dining with had no complaints.

Wonderful Sunday Dinner
Took the "mothers" out for Mother's Day dinner. Great service - - seated immediately, bread/water put on the table, servers were great (pouring the wine, removing used plates, replacing utensils, etc.) Food was good.

Happy repeat customer
I have eaten at this restaurant a few times and I have never been disappointed, nor my guests... Dishes are very flavorful and generous and the menu offers great variety. Service is well timed, not intrusive and very accommodating. Very nice ambience, elegant without being pretentious.

Unique, Delicious Italian Cuisine
Tutti Santi is a rare gem. The Italian cuisine is unique & delicious. Tutti Santi offers a grilled Calamari salad. The flavors of the very tender, grilled Calamari, on top of arugula, covered in lemon juice + extra virgin olive oil, were brilliant! We enjoyed some of the best Pasta I've ever tasted in the AZ area. I had an exquisite Pasta a la Vongole with generous numbers of fresh clams. My guests enjoyed a tasty Papparadelle e Gamberti with grilled shrimp, asparagus, & cherry tomato in an olive oil/garlic sauce combined with a tomato sauce & parmasagne, along with a Tortellini stuffed with Sausage in a Gorgonzola/Cream/Parmasagne sauce. The desserts were impressive too! Complex flavors from fresh, simple, well executed ingredients!

The service was great. Servers, Hostess, and Busboys were very nice. They gave us a complimentary cheesecake for our anniversary, and they gave us a Thank You card with a complimentary Ravioli appetizer for our next visit. I loved the Ravioli! Also, they refilled our water glasses a lot.

Spectacular on weekday evening
All employees treated us like we were important to them. They took their time with us, were glad to have us there, and they were very proud to be working at this resturant. Our dining party of 3 enjoyed the tasty food, the staff treated us superbly, and we each want to eat their again. AND WE WILL.

We will certainly eat there again.

Hard to find, but worth it!
We just recently relocated to Phoenix from Chicago and were in search of a really good Italian restaurant in the area. I was encouraged by the "family owned" aspect of the restaurant and that it was relatively close to where we live (usually you have to drive to Scottsdale for the good food...) We made reservations but it wasn't busy at all. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive, the dining room was comfortable and romantic. The wine was good. The menu provided us with a lot of great options to choose from. I had a chicken dish in a creme sauce which was absolutely out of this world! My husband had something with red sauce which he said was to "red" and sweet, but it was fine. We will definitely go back - there's more to try.

My husband and I have eaten at Tutti Santi many times since we moved to the west side. it is close to our home and always very good. The favors in the food really stand out . It's always a unique dinning experience.

Best in Neighborhood
We choose Tutti Santi for all special occasions. A little too pricey for everyday (for us). However, the food is worth every penny!

No conversation possible
We visited Tutti Santi for the first time for our anniversary. The restaurant is very attractive and we had high hopes for the evening. The service and the food were both superb but the acoustics are so terrible that it was impossible to carry on a conversation. Even when ordering we could not hear the waitress and she could not hear us without leaning very close to our faces. There was music playing but the noise of the surrounding conversations was so loud that you could not even hear it. It frankly, ruined our dinner experience, regardless of how good the food and the service were, and they were very good.
We will not be returning until they do something about the noise level, unfortuately.

I'm from Chicago, and have lived in Arizona for 7 years now and this atmosphere and food brings me back. GREAT restaurant!!

first time, good time
This was our first time and it was our 28 th wedding anniversary so I was hoping it was as good as it looked on the web. It was. We were dining early so it was slow which makes it hard to say if the service would have suffered with more diners but it was very good. The food was very well presented but not overdone and, most importantly, very good. The staff was attentive without being overbearing and our server was very knowledgeable of the menu.
The surprise was the bill. four drinks, an appetizer, two entries, and dessert was only 90 dollars. Seemed like a bargain to me.
I would highly recommend this place and will be dining there again.

Tutti Santi is a gem!
My husband and I are new to the Arrowhead area and a short time ago we noticed the sign for Tutti Santi. Being somewhat of Italian restaurant enthusiasts, we did some online research about the restaurant and were quite excited to try it. Last Friday we got the opportunity and were very pleased with the results. Ambience was very inviting, bar was spacious, happy hour deals (which we decided to go in a bit early and check out) were great, bartender was attentive. After the bar, we sat down at a table, service was impeccable, friendly, non-intrusive, and informative when we had questions about the menu. We absolutely will be back to explore the menu more. More people need to check this place out!!

For this visit, we were a group of 8. The food was outstanding as was the service. Highly recommend!

Tucked into a corner mall, this warm, comfortable restaurant was a welcome change from the noisy, crowded Phoenix restaurants we have experienced. The ability to make reservations is a plus, thus avoiding the choice between dinner at 4:30 or a one hour+ wait. The entrees are freshly prepared to order and reflect the tastes of the "smart casual" dress code diners. The sauces on the pasta dishes were distinctive and well balanced. My uncle was very happy to find escargot on the menu and enjoyed sharing the dish with us.

A recent special family occasion called for a special dinner of great food and quiet ambience where some important things could be discussed in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. Tutti Santi by Nina fit the bill perfectly. The food was awesomely good, the service attentive but not hovering, and the evening was a huge success. I have reviewed this restaurant before, and never have anything but a top notch dining experience to comment on. One of my all time favorite places to eat.

There was nothing we can think of that would have improved this experience. Everything was first class.

Great place for a special occasion!
I made our dinner reservations through Open Table wherein, I let the restaurant know that we were celebrating my son's 20th birthday. The hostess promptly seated us in the location that I requested in my reservation. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the dinner specials and the cocktail menu. The entire staff was very accommodating. We had a wonderful meal which concluded with a complimentary slice of cheesecake for the birthday boy and Sambuca aperitifs for me and my husband. We'll definitely be back!
