    We live in Michigan and ALWAYS include a stop at this restaurant when we are in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We first learned about Tutti Santi (by Nina) Scottsdale from a concierge at one of the local upscale hotels at which we were staying several years ago. She said that it her preferred restaurant for great Italian food. My whole family agrees. The pastas are all home made and the atmosphere is very warming. We are greeted like family there. My wife and I recently returned from a two week trip to Italy and actually enjoy the food at Tutti Santi more than we did in Italy.

    One of our favorite and reliable places when we visit Scottsdale. The Nina's ravioli has an airy light pasta wrap and wonderful tomato cream sauce. We enjoy the Veal Francesca followed by spumoni for dessert. The presentation of a glass of Sambucca after dinner was a pleasant surprise.

    I recently took my girlfriend here. We try to go out for a nice dinner every Friday and this past was one of the better dinners we have had. Tutti Santi had amazing service, minus the snooty hostess, but the waiter and staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The waiter was one of the better authentic Italian waiters I have ever had. I asked him what looked good tonight and he said the risotto. He was bang on! It was amazing. My girlfriend had the tomatoes chicken dish with spaghetti and the flavors were great. We followed.it up with a homemade cannoli. Great dining experiance!

    I have enjoyed Nina's restaurants over the years, but frequently, despite usually good food, the service hasn't been up to par. Recently, while dining with another couple, we experienced a new low. Our waiter was not Italian, and there was absolutely no charm to his New York (or New Jersey) attitude. Aggressively in our faces would be accurate description. We were "greeted" brusquely by him and he was obviously irritated that we had any questions at all about menu items. He said that the shrimp would "naturally be from Mexico". Finally after being prodded to actually inquire, he agreed to accommodate the question. A nasty attitude overall, not willing to extend himself to offer the most basic service. Last time at Tutti Santi for us!!

    This is real Italian folks. From the owner, manager, wait staff and kitchen output. The garlic wafts through the restaurant and is especially notable when you enter. No garlic wimps allowed. Started with some sausage stuffed mushrooms that set the scene. The halibut (special) was done to perfection and bathed in a garlic/ butter/ tomato sauce that complimented nicely. We come here every trip to Arizona and will continue.

    I was dining with my adult grand-daughter and the waiter totally abandoned us. His attitude was surly. He treated a table of 3 businessmen with good service and attention and also a couple (husband and wife). I believe he felt his tip would be less from 2 women than from the other diners. I tipped better than the service required but I normally tip 20%. I didn't in this case. I would go back to Tutti Santi but not if this man was our server.

    Tucked in the end of a neighborhood shopping strip, Tutti Santi is a gem. Outstanding food with specials, staff that is attentive and friendly, chefs that can create something off the menu, nice wine selection, and a cozy feel, all at reasonable prices...what more could you want. One of our favorites!

    I'm an insider since I started dining at Tutti Santi and it's predecessors in 1992 up on Bell Road. But why come back all those years? Dependably great food served in the comfort of a neighborhood restaurant, excellent selection of wines, especially Italian which are my favorites, proficient wait staff so the service is always good. When we are celebrating as a family or a group, Tutti Santi is our first choice. When we stray we are almost always disappointed so we keep coming back.

    I had been to the Tutti Santi on 90th and Via Linda and there was a much better atmosphere and I remember the food being better too. I realize they are going for tradtional and that is fine. I think I'm just not the demographic for this restaurant. My eggplant parm was okay but my husband really did not enjoy his pasta with asparagus and salmon at all. The service was good, but we will probably not go back.

    Being Italian and a chef/cook myself, I am rather critical of restaurants that don't offer me something to remember. Tutti Santi always has good food well prepared and occasionally a slight twist. This is my fifth time and each experience has been a good one. The Calamari was perfect!

    Waiter seemed put-out in spite of the less than filled restaurant. The hostess turned us down for a booth with the statement "they're only good for 2", I responded nicely with "really?". At that point I perceived an overload of garlic in three of our meals... Have followed T-S for about 20 years now, always a special occasion, always my choice for special occasions. My last 3 visits have been less than stellar, very disappointing.

    We have been going here for many years . The atmosphere is starting to feel dated and tired . It really needs some updating. They have new menus and although the food was good, I think the prices are creeping up to be considered expensive . For this atmosphere , I don't feel it warrants the price ! Example : two couples . We each had one cocktail, shared two appetizers , each had a main course and shared two desserts.The bill finished at $250. For that price I would rather be at a trendy Scottsdale place with a great vibe and energy , not at a neighborhood Italian bistro. I must say , the stuffed mushrooms are divine !

We all ordered different entrees and all were incredible -- I can't imagine you could go wrong with whatever you selected. We started with the stuffed mushrooms and calamari -- absolutely fantastic!

    I will keep this short--we have been coming to Tutti Santi from the time they opened. We (4 seniors) thought the waitress was wonderful and made the evening. We also thought the prices were too high and will have to cut down on our visits due to the high cost now associated with Tutti Santi. Plan on at least a 2 hour dinner (European style) ours took 2.5 hours. The food was good but not commensurate with the price, in my opinion. If money is no object then you will have a nice meal with good service. My wife was more critical and she has rented the restaurant for special occasions over the years.
