Our food was of great quality...the only thing lacking was some seasoning...such as in the veal milanese...great veal chop pounded down, but is was missing herbs and seasoning in the bread crumbs.....i would also suggest a balsamic type of dressing rather than a lemony one on the salad .
We did enjoy our evening at Bice and glad that they finally opened in the north valley.

Bice, Scottsdale did not disappoint. The menu is varied, though not for the plain eater among you. Didn't sample the wine list this time. The decor is beautiful cosmopolitan. Our waiter Micheali was most attentive, professional & offered suggestions. Both he and the kitchen were accomodating even though I requested dietary adjustments to my dish. He even acknowledged our anniversary. My tepid coffee was delivered by a novice, but this was otherwise a most enjoyable Italian evening out.

Bice is a great find hidden
Bice is a great find hidden away in an office complex. The service, food & ambiance are exellent. It is a nice addition to the north Scottsdale area.

The entrees we ordered were
The entrees we ordered were a bit too rich [two pastas]; next time we'll order fish and salad. The restaurant's design and materials are quite wonderful.

Bice comes to Arizona
When living in Milan we were huge fans of Bice. We were impressed how well the experience in Scottsdale emulated our past experience. The menu and the food were true Italian. The flavors and presentation were very typical. We enjoyed a great meal and wine. Service was good but more typical of the USA. Restaurant was more open and so a bit noisier than ideal but they were the sounds of folks having a really good time.

Bice Scottsdale is still settling
Bice Scottsdale is still settling into its new self, but holds promise in a neighborhood that has been missing a first-class restaurant for several years. The space has been beautifully re-designed and appointed. The staff is pleasant but seems a bit uncertain at this point. The food and drinks are outstanding --five stars! The room is just a bit too "energetic"; noisy would be a more approrpiate descriptor.

Open Table Diner
We've dined at Bice on two occasions and both proved to be exceptional. I recommend you allow the waiter / waitress to assist in the wine and food selection. Many great Italian wines and the evening specials have always been a treat. On our last visit the owner took time to talk with us and share his experience in opening the restaurant, as well as its origins in Milan. Our server was exceptional as well. She was attentive, but gave us our space and time appropriately. Expect many more great dining experiences in the future at Bice.

The food was good, but we had a couple hickups with the service....simple stuff like water, more dipping sauce (which was wonderful)

The food was truly amazing. Great service. Easily one of the top Italian restaurants in the metro area. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful dining experience
All around high marks for Bice. Had a spectacular dinner there with friends. Food and service were both fantastic. Wonderful wine list. Worth every penny. Only criticism... a little noisy as the evening progressed.

Excellent Italian Food
The food is truly amazing - but not cheap! Be prepared to spend some serious dollars - - the servers are all Italian, which is cute, but they are stretched thin - so waiting is not unusual - - But the food overcomes all else!

Good food...missing small touches
Drinks were refreshing..had the waiter surprise me with a drink from the bar and it was delicious. Food was good. Did the Tartare Sampler, Scallops, Pasta as a main dish, and a side of pasta to accompany the scallops. The side pasta was bigger than my main entree but both were good. As the restaurant got busier the waiter was less attentive to us and we sat quite a while before he brought our check. I was hoping he was working on a bday dessert of some sort as I had mentioned it was a bday celebration when I made the reservations. But no go...not even a mention. We checked out the lounge upstairs where music was supposed to be playing, but we must have been too early. Left feeling OK about the evening but underwhelmed.

Bice is a great asset to the neighb
Excellent food and great upstairs bar. The outdoor patio on the roof has fire pits and is cigar friendly and allows enough space for non smokers to breathe clean air. The wine list is very good with a good by the glass selection, and the cheese bar is a terrific place to hang out for a light meal or after hours snack.

We had a fantastic meal, even asking for a few special requests which were granted with a smile. From the 4 dinners we ordered, everyone loved theirs! Would certainly go back again!

Took clients to Bice
Leonardo made the experience so enjoyable-as though we were in Milan!
The food was EXCELLENT in terms of both presentation and palate. I heartily
recommend Bice (to the affluent)!

Best new restaurant
Very surprised how beautiful and sleek the decor was. Beautiful lighting and a warm fireplace, white linen tablecloths. WE took our daughter there for her 28th birthday,she loved it.
The food was exceptional. Everything was done with care and just the way we ordered it. Presentation was wonderful.
The servers were wonderful and very responsive.
After dinner we had desert, also great. Then he surprised us with an Italian treat, that to was complimentary.
It was all about the little things, the attention to details and the the warm comfortable environment . We will be back and tell all our friends.

Just Like Italy
We had just returned from Italy when we first visited Bice, My wife remarked that the cuisine was just like the better restaurants we had enjoyed in Florence, Rome, Milan and Siena. Bice is an Italian chain so the menu includes signature dishes from menus of its other restaurants from around the world. Interesting! We had salmon and tuna that were prepared in a unique and quite delicious manner. The first courses we selected were also outstanding. The server surprised us by recommending a less expensive wine than we had first chosen..."If you like that, you will love this!" and it was much less expensive, complementing the Summer menu perfectly. We have scheduled our next visit to Bice after we return from a vacation trip.

Great New Restaurant
Bice is a must return to restaurant. Food was excellent with a great presentation and cooked to perfection.

We will be back to try the upstairs bar and patio when it gets a little cooler. Menu was one of those where everything sounds great so you cannot make up your mind. Carpaccio was excellent as was the Ahi Tartare. I had the Branzino while my husband had a squid ink pasta with sea food. Yummy !!
9/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
No where near the stiff, upscale, pricey and swishy place we'd heard about. Quite the contrary. Really enjoyed the venue, food, service and relaxed, yet prominent, atmosphere. Manzino fish was a real killer! The Zenato Pinot Grigio was light, reasonbly priced and a great compliment to the food. A very pleasant surprise...

Tucked away but worth finding
Located on the NW corner of Pima and Pinnacle Peak in an office park. We dropped in before a local concert, allowing enough time to enjoy conversation and dinner among friends. Head up the stairs to the indoor/outdoor hideaway, with fire pit, bar, high top tables, comfy lounge seating and views. The service was superbly accommodating and friendly. Every morsel of food was tasty and done perfectly. As a teaser to the main menu, try the bites as tapas. The main restaurant at ground level is cavernous yet cozy with a bar, intimate seating, alcoves for groups, fireplace, tablecloths and welcoming, layered lighting. Be prepared to spend a few bucks to enjoy all that Bice (pronounced Bee-chay) offers; you will discover its value.

Great Ambience! Waiters very attentive! Food was tasty and displayed lovely!

True Undiscovered Gem
Bice is just what the Pinnacle and Pima area needs. It is a beautiful/trendy place with fantastic food and great service. The wait staff could not be more friendly. And the prices are great for the area. We dined there last night and were surprised that more people have not picked up on this GEM of a restaurant. It is a nice change from Nicks, Pane e Vino and others in the area. We recommend you give it a try.

Pleasant surprize nearby.
Beautiful location for a beautiful restuarant. This area sat unoccupied for too long and we proudly welcome them to our neighborhood.

Still working out the kinks
Visited twice over a week - dinner one night and happy hour another night. The food is excellent (tried lasagna, butternut squash gnocchi, couple of salads, and pizza). Reasonable wine list. As other reviewers commented, dinner service could be painfully slow. One negative is the cooking grease smell that permeates the dining area (and clings on to your clothing). Al fresco dining in the upstairs patio is a nice option if the patio is open for business.
