From the gatekeeper to the employees who assisted us with directions
to our waiters -- everyone was upbeat and helpful. We met our grandson
there who was in for the day and we all enjoyed the ambiance, especially
all the beautiful flowers so lovingly cared for. It was a memorable and happy afternoon.

Fine dining all the way
We chose Il Terrazzo because of its location at the Phoenician and expecting a five star experience. The restaurant did not disappoint. The views of Camelback mountain are stunning and we enjoyed relaxing outside on the patio. The food was cooked to perfection and the dessert menu was equally delicious.

We will be back for sure!
We had a great dinner at Il Terrazzo! The food was excellent and the service is how a restaurant should be. The staff is very attentive in all areas from the front desk to the serving staff. We will be back next time we are in Scottsdale!

Do Brunch at Il Terrazzo
We have always loved the Phoenician - the elaborate brunch of the past has been replaced by a less expensive, but just as delicious offering. Diners can choose between a brunch menu or supplement that menu with a breakfast buffet. Champagne and Mimosas are included in the 45 dollar version, which was delicious. Il Terrazzo has been redone with comfortable booths and large windows overlooking a large patio. Very lovely.

Wonderful Easter Brunch
We had a very enjoyable Easter brunch here. We sat outside and it was lovely. The food was very good and we enjoyed the prosecco. The options for kids was good, and we were located right by all the Easter happenings for the kids (pony rides, Easter bunny, jumpy house, etc.)

This Italian restaurant in
This Italian restaurant in the Phoenician resort hotel is very upscale and quite expensive. Andrea was a polite and efficient server. House baby greens salad was delicious. I enjoyed the grilled salmon, but there was a skimpy accompaniment of vegetables. The homemade olive bread is very good with olive oil and parmesan cheese. I selected a perfect full bodied chianti among the wines by the glass. Fortunately, as a Troon Card golfer, I was able to take advantage of the discount on my entree price; otherwise, it would be very impossible to have meal for under $50 per person.

Phenomenal evening! We were visiting Scottsdale from our of town and enjoyed the last evening of our vacation at Il Terrazzo. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent! We really enjoyed sitting outside and overall had a very memorable evening. Next time we are in town we will definitely be back to Il Terrazzo at the Phoenician.

This was my first time at Il Terrazzo and it was a fantastic one. I was in awe of the surroundings. The food was to die for and our server Andrea and her staff of helpers were amazing. I shall return!

Our son graduated from ASU
Our son graduated from ASU and we took the family to IlTerrazzo for brunch after the ceremony. We sat outside and had a very enjoyable time. My husband and I had the eggs benedict. He had potatoes for a side, but fresh fruit was also available. One son had the red velvet waffles and the other had French toast. Everything was delicious including the refreshing mimosas. As an unexpected treat, the waitress brought out a fabulous plate of desserts to celebrate the occasion. We had a very memorable and enjoyable time.

Truely a great dining experiance - not to be missed!!!

The service was amazing! I told the waitress that we were celebrating my parent's anniversary and Father's Day and she brought us dessert wine and a platter of cookies with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. It was one of the best service I've ever seen. Thank you for making our night very special.

We dined for Brunch. Two of us ordered from the menu and the other had the buffet. I really enjoyed the blueberry pancakes. The service was excellent.

summer menus are worth trying
I love the 3 course summer prix fixe menu. It really was a wonderful combination of a great summer salad with a really innovative cinnamon vinaigrette. The main course was a short rib with a wonderful flavor and dessert was light and flavorful. It's really worth the effort to go and enjoy what is probably right in our back yard. Brunch is always a delight.

Food was great and the service was excellent, but we really want to praise a couple of people.
First, the lovely young lady operating the omelet bar was incredible. She had four burners going and then had to run back to get plates. Forgot her name, but she deserves a lot of praise.
Second, another lovely young lady appeared to be the manager and made sure we had a great table and really made my parents feel special for their anniversary.

Good food, but...
Sat outside on a warm summer night. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. My husband & I thought that the food was good but I don't think we'll go back. Found it to be a bit pretentious. Thought the wine list was ridiculously expensive. If you are staying at tThe Phoenician, I suppose this is a good option. Otherwise, not so much.

special occasion dinner
Great food, great service! Everyone we encountered made my mother and I feel welcome. We were very well taken care of.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was outstanding and friendly. We visited it twice on our stay and both times were very enjoyable. Nice, reasonably priced prix-fixed menu in addition to the main menu.

Once more Top Notch
We took new friends to El Terrazo for their first time. We had been there maybe a half dozen times before.
The place was nearly vacant. Maybe six people total. First time on that. Snow Birds are gone. Great food. Prices are okay too considering where we were/are. jeb
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Il Terrazzo has been a favorite of ours for many years, and it only took our recent anniversary celebration to remind us of why: from the accommodating and friendly staff to the truly wonderful food to the romantic setting, Il Terrazzo has it all! Even if The Phoenician weren't reason enough to visit Scottsdale, Il Terrazzo would be.
Thanks for a wonderful evening!

Gem in the Desert
My family was celebrating a birthday event and this place was amazing! I cannot determine whether it was the location, view, service, or food that was best because they were all OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!! Recommend this place for special occasions or even a romantic evening out. This would also be a great go-to place for showing out of towners the beauty of AZ.

Went during restaurant week - amazing experience at a reasonable price. Sit on the patio at

Most romantic place in Phoenix
While this is not a place for gourmet dining, the food is adequate, the service is efficient and friendly and the setting is spectacular. The three course price fixe menu is a bargain, the wine selection is good. After dinner, I also recommend the bar on the terrace upstairs in another spectacular setting. This makes for an outstanding romantic evening out and we will certainly be back soon.

Wonderful Outdoor Dining
I enjoy coming here for it's food, decor and waitstaff. Can't wait to return in the future and the weather is getting much better for outdoor dining. My husband had the burger and it was huge! He enjoyed it. I had the Phoenician Club and it was very good. We noticed a wedding group nearby. They were a bit loud, but even then it wasn't too bad. Noticeably quieter once they left. :) The scenery is nice, but not a knockout as it overlooks the pool area (somewhat). More of a foliage view.

Best Breakfast in Scottsdale
Benedict is perfect, hollandaise is some of the best I have had, and the Huevos Rancheros, on the bed of pork, makes a perfect side dish. The hostess staff are delightful, waiters perfectly attentive but not obtrusive, and the outside dining and vista is terrific. Also, great for outside for a late dinner with the warm heat lamps...don't miss the short rib...get it seared a bit crisp!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Often times we try new restaurants and after dining we look at each other and say we don't need to go back. We met friends here for dinner after cocktails at the Thirsty Camel, and were greeted by an enthusiastic server who explained the menu in great detail. Most of our party ordered different pasta dishes while I ordered from the $29 prix fixe menu which included a salad, entree and desert. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and we all agreed we'd go back. Next time, we'll dress a bit warmer and sit outside.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the summer menu. Salad, main course and dessert with exquisite wine pairings. Generous portions at reasonable price

Stellar Sunday brunch
My wife and I enjoyed the 3 course Sunday brunch. Santa Margharita prosecco was poured frequently and Starbucks was served. The smoked salmon with beets had great flavor. My wife's seared ahi was ultra fresh. I had the steak frites, and the meat was tasty, juicy, and perfectly cooked. The frites were seasoned with parsley, garlic, and grated cheese. My wife enjoyed her chicken panini. The final course is a tower of small desserts; standouts were the deconstructed tiramisu and the lemon mousse.

The special t-day menu was really good! best turkey I've had in a long time. Other menu choices excellent! service was friendly and special. Love that they call you by your name based on your reservation. nice touch!

The food and service were excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant. The server was very knowledgable about the menu. We had a delightful evening.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Sunday non-holiday brunch is not as elaborate or expensive as it used to be. There was quite enough food and several choices to make. The service was superb and although there were not many dessert choices, the staff brought us a couple of things from the bakery that were not on the buffet. We were able to sit for a couple of hours and talk over brunch, which was great!
