Quality Italian Food
Just an excellent restaurant from top to bottom. We were able to order half portions of the dinners for the kids which worked out well. Still not cheap, but not many things that are high in quality are. Would definitely recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious and the menu was more varied and appealing than we expected. We would definitely return.

Would recommend for foodies. Great menu (especially veal and pasta), but not inexpensive. Wonderful appetizer list. Nice wine list, but a bit pricey. Large number of nightly specials. Service was terrific (not rushed), and atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. We will be back.

Always good and reliable
Gianfranco's dishes are always good, and service is great. A "go to" restaurant for a great traditional Italian dinner.

Dined here this week with a friend who had never been, the food, service and ambience were all exceptional. I have eaten here numerous times and never been disappointed.

A north Scottsdale Gen
Amazing food, service - James, our waiter, was knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and delightful. The bartender was so great to make a particular mixed drink to specific request. Could not have asked for anything better. A new favorite & regular establishment for us!

Best meatballs in town!
Gianfranco was a rare find in this area. The meal was fresh and nicely prepared. A bit pricy for a pasta entree.

Top Italian Restaurant
We enjoyed a scrumptious meal in the bar area at a secluded high top setting. The service was absolutely impeccable and the food was spot on. Truly an enjoyable evening!! I requested something not on the menu and it was prepared without a question and perfectly.

Best Italian in town
Love Franco's food. We try to eat here regularly and have never had a meal that was not exquisite. Specials are great as is the entire menu. Worth a trip to North Scottsdale.

Enjoyable dinning experience again!
One of the absolute best in Scottsdale without question! I dine here 4-5 times a month and stop by for a casual cocktail from time to time.

Terrific! At Italian restaurants,
Terrific! At Italian restaurants, the two of us like to split a salad, split a pasta, split an entrée, and split a dessert. They allowed us to split everything at no charge. We had the arugula salad, very good. For pasta, we had an appetizer size of the special ravioli and an appetizer size of the gnocchi and both were fantastic. Our entrée was veal smothered in mushrooms in a brown sauce, also fantastic. We will go back more often.

Franco comes to the table to make sure everything is good and prepared to your liking. Great service!

Elegant, staff is excellent, food really good. If Gianfranco has his meatballs as a special - try them. They rival Tarbells, and may just win that battle.
