We really enjoyed our dining
We really enjoyed our dining experience. Sarah, our waitress, was great. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and explained everything with lots of " colorful" detail, almost like we could taste the dishes before they were presented.
The seafood risotto was to die for and the orata was very refreshing. We topped our evening off with your mouthwatering tiramisu that was presented with style.
We will be sure to return!

The chef stole the show
Our favorite wines were easy to find on the wine list including some wines I’ve wanted to try. The appetizers were disguised in a secret language that we didn’t have the decoder ring for, but our server knew what each thing meant. The Burrata was very sweet, alarmingly so, but since we had a light Riesling, we were OK. The Baccala fritters were the most amazing treat, do not pass these up. The Spaghettini was pure perfection, the sautéed cherry tomatoes burst with flavor making this dish a winner. The Halibut was slightly over cooked and dry but the sauce and fregole made me forget all about that. The best Tiramisu ever: perfectly sized serving encrusted in a ganache chocolate and served with hot chocolate tableside.

From the moment we arrived
From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the door, everything was exceptional. The server was friendly and knowledgable, the wine list very impressive, the food outstanding and the outdoor patio was a very nice setting. The chef even came out to welcome us. We will be returning for sure.

best pork chops ever
Really great food and service! Everything about Taggia at FireSky was totally fantastic.
The sea bass and chicken plates were both very good, but the best entree was the pork chop –– tender and moist, served over braised kale, and creamy sweet potato puree.
Our waiter was very prompt and attentive, and the rest of the staff as well.
After dinner, we ordered taramisu and bread pudding for desserts, the best we have had anywhere.
We are eager to go return very soon.

The staff was very attentive and the food was wonderful. The chef prepared the best dishes and were served with beautiful presentation. Sometimes the jazz upbeat music was a bit too much especially at breakfast time. The lobby bar was very near and sometimes a bit too noisy for the diners but mostly it was a very nice spot.

We came to the resort that we stayed at on our wedding night, and it is still just as beautiful as it was 8 years ago. Eventhough there were children playing in the pool 50 feet away, it was still very quiet and romantic. The food and service was excellent, and made for an overall enjoyable evening.

We were very happy with our choice of using the hotel restaurant! Because of our large party the checks did take awhile. Lots of confusion at bill time. Servers were wonderful! Chef came out and visited us! Overall great experience!

Locals should love it
Good quality food, knowledgeable server, good value. Great location in downtown Scottsdale; a varied menu; many of the pasta entrees are offered as appetizer portions.

Relaxed, quiet atmosphere.
Relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Reasonably priced, but limited menu choices. The Greens salad (beets, smoked goat cheese, porcini) one of the best I've tasted. I'd order the Orecchiette pasta again.

Classy privet one on one feel
Went here on a nice date with my gorgeous girlfriend. Ordered the best of everything. The waiter we had REALLY knows wines. And the chief came by our table during our meal to make sure we loved our steaks. We did and it's a nice touch he came by. Then he came by as we got into our very decadent desert, and again we were very happy with the deserts.

special occasion...not fantastic
Dinner was good; shared one of their specials. the Employees were extremely accommodating. Restaurant is at a hotel and sits adjacent to the bar (not sure if there was a quiet table at all). There was lots of bar noise which was a little distracting through dinner. If we had dinner later in the meaning, maybe that would not have been the case.

Out of Towner Delight
We stayed at the Firesky Resort and Spa for a ladies bachelorette/wedding shower weekend and came from out of town. Booked at Taggia because it was close and had good reviews. Originally reserved for 11, changed it to 9 and then upon check in changed to 8 - they had no problem. The restaurant was ready for us with a private room and curtain where we were able to have a wonderful time(and loud). Our waiter Kyle did a fantastic job with recommendations for our group with appetizers, dinner, drinks and wine. We were a handful (seriously), but he never failed to provide us with excellent service and a smile. The food presentation was wonderful, the flavor outstanding and the timing perfect, even the Chef came out and thanked us. WOW!!

Our second time here. The
Our second time here. The food wasn't as good as the first time, but maybe it's how we ordered. Bolognese spaghetti was very good. Our waitress Sara was outstanding! They honored our request for a special table and brought the anniversary couple a lovely dessert.

While they have a nice outside dining area, my wife and I chose to eat inside and had a nice booth. The food was very good and creatively prepared, and the attention of the service staff and maître d' was way more than you (we!) usually experience, even at nice restaurants, without being hovering. They couldn't do enough for us to see we were taken care of. We shared a first course of braised lamb belly, which was outstanding. I had sand dabs and my wife had sea scallops with lemon and asparagus risotto, all of which were excellent. We shared the dessert of tiramisu with chocolate sauce that was a perfect finish. The only down side was the inside area entrance was close to a bar out in the lobby, where noise from there spilled into the room

Had dinner here on a Sunday night while on a golf vacation in Scottsdale. Took advantage of the Kimpton November prixe fixe promo, and all 3 courses were great, very fresh and well prepared, if not all entirely Italian (ahi tuna appetizer, butternut squash soup, scallops with asparagus risotto, grilled swordfish, tiramisu and bread pudding). The seafood was perfectly cooked, not overdone in the least. Our waitress was very friendly and chatted with us for a while, since the restaurant wasn't too busy. Overall it was a fantastic dining experience.

Dining at Taggia
Enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Taggia. The turkey and stuffing were excellent. We plan to go back for another dinner.

Four of us had dinner at Taggia's for the second time and loved our experience more the second time. We sat on the outside Patio overlooking a beautiful pool surrounded by quite a light show. The food was awesome, the wine and drinks also awesome. Our server Lauren knows the menu inside and out and that makes our experience Great! We would advise anyone who wants a romantic dinner with their special somebody to come here ask for Lauren and Enjoy!

The food was excellent. What makes it an experience to me is the level of service your receive. The hostess went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible table. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The manager and the chef both came over to make sure everything was perfect. To me, that is what the experience is all about. I appreciate all the effort as it left us leaving with a smile and good feelings about our evening.
