A word from Taggia at FireSky
Reminiscent of the Italian Riviera, the experience here is rustic yet refined, casual yet elegant. Featuring Coastal Italian cuisine, our menu highlights fresh seafood and wood fired oven pizzas. Chef Massimo De Francesca transforms carefully chosen organic, seasonal ingredients into the time-tested, naturally healthy dishes of Italy's Ligurian coastline. Believing that true Mediterranean cuisine is defined by the quality of the ingredients, flavorful dishes like Baccala Fritters with Hearts of Palm & Chipotle Aioli or Veal Tonnato with Tuna Emulsion, Pickled Eggs & Gerkin Pesto confirm this. Nestled within FireSky Resort & Spa, Taggia overlooks the lush oaisis lagoon and waterfalls. You can choose from the relaxed casual experience in the dining room with an intimate booth or the livelier social atmosphere of the outdoor patio, with wood burning fireplace and bubbling fountians.

Diner Reviews
  • "We came across this spot by accident . We loved it so much we went two nights in a row. Great food , service , and atmosphere. We will be back! "

  • "We were early in the evening and service was a little slow at first, but later good enough and very friendly. Food, especially appetizers,was very good. Outside dining on a perfect night was great, with only a little distraction from the near-by pool. As sunset occurred very nice lighting came on in lush trees near-by. Very nice evening over all. Would return."

  • "Super service, wonderful food. We had the scallops and asparagus risotto. Absolutely delicious. The manager was so nice to stroll around the tables and talk with everyone:) The ambience was fantastic."

  • "We went to Taggia because it was at our hotel, but both agreed it was the best meal we had in Scottsdale our entire trip. The fish was beautifully prepared and tasty, and our pasta was homemade - al dente but soft, and the sauce with it was amazing. Our breakfasts there were delicious as well. The Huevos Rancheros was some of the best I've ever had. Their breakfasts are delicious and the portions were plenty, without being huge like some places use to make up for the fact that they're not as good!"

  • "We have eaten here several time and always given it a 5 star, but this time they let us down. Two of us order the Scallops and Risiotto and the scallops were raw in the middle and the Risiotto was runny and no flavor at all. The restaurant did do a good job taking it back and replacing it. The patio is beautiful, but the heaters were on full blast which made it feel like 90 when the outside temperature was 65. This was not our best experience here at all."

  • "We were impressed by the instant ,very pleasant and expert service,the first course was well presented ,the food temperature was appropriate and was enjoyed.The main course was well cooked,well presented and was excellent or very good for six different choices.The Oregon red wine was excellent,as was the choices for the teenage,non-drinkers. We have stayed at the Hotel and eaten at this restaurant over the last decade. We shall return!"

  • "We ate here twice while at FireSky. It was fabulous both times. The kitchen staff did a great job in getting the food out to the table very quickly. The entire staff seems to enjoy their job and the guests that they serve - from the hostess to the waiters/waitresses."

  • "We had just arrived in town after a long drive and still needed to visit a grocery store to stock up for our extended visit. But first, we must have dinner! Open Table to the rescue. We chose Taggia because it was close and the menu was appealing. First, we were surprised to find that it's located within a beautiful resort -very lovely setting. We chose to sit outdoors overlooking the pool and fire features -so relaxing. Our cocktails were perfect and the service couldn't have been better. I had the spaghettini with Italian sausage and eggplant. Excellent - layers of flavors and comfort food all at the same time. Instead of a quick meal, we had a lovely dining experience. We plan to go back to try more things from the menu."

  • "Four of us enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Taggia. Each dish was perfectly prepared. The contrast in tastes was both surprising and delicious. The service was wonderful."

  • "informed and efficient server, lovely setting, excellent food prepared and plated beautifully. A favorite was the crispy lamb belly, similar to the ubiquitous pork belly so popular of late, but with a mild lamby taste and not quite as fatty it was divine. The misto salad was rather ordinary but tasty. The osso bucco falling off the bone tender the and skirt steak, juicy and cooked exactly as requested.."

  • "Terrific food! The salad dressings were perfect: not too vinegary, well-balanced. I loved my seared ahi: It was delicious and beautifully presented! The setting is very nice---comfortable and attractive. Wonderful service too!"

  • "Had a lovely meal at Taggia on Saturday night. Do not miss the pizza's! Crispy airy crust is perfect. The date, bacon, goat cheese pizza is fantastic! Smokey and a touch of sweetness - yum! Three of us split it as a appetizer followed by a pasta course. All the pasta was homemade and all were delicious. Don't miss Taggia for a fun night out."

  • "I was staying at the hotel so we decided to eat dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. The food was fair, however, I recommend the many other options in Scottsdale that are worth the drive."

  • "Very nice place, but only seemed to have one waitress so service was a little slow."

  • "Taggia was great all around. Food, service and atmosphere. Fresh food made to order with excellent menu options. Had an enjoyable dinner outside as well as an after dinner drink inside by the fireplace. The FireSky Resort where the restaurant is located was also amazing! The front desk even gave us a ride back to our hotel! Imagine that in the Northeast! Would highly recommend to all! Will be back there next year!"

  • "We had a very lovely and special Christmas dinner. Everything was superb. We particularly appreciated the chef's willingness to offer the dinner menu when we had made reservations a tad too early and the ability to make a couple of substitutes to the accompaniments. We particularly liked the fact that this fine restaurant is in a resort that is dog-friendly, too, in public areas (lobby, patio)! We definitely will look into staying at the Resort beyond just returning again for a meal when we come over for a visit."

  • "We began with an appetizer of Formaggi. This cheese plate includes 4 different cheeses. Our favorite was the robiola - sweet, soft, & creamy. My wife's entre as garganelli pasta (similar to penne) with scampi in a poblano béchamel sauce. Quite good...the scampi were a little skimpy ;~), but delicious. I chose the ossobuco in a red wine demi glaze. The shank was fall-of-the-bone tender - just as it should be. Delicious lemon polenta. The wine list is good, covering most of the globe. I especially enjoyed the Malbec from Argentina. Portions were good, but not overwhelming. We opted to take our dessert home. The tiramisu was outstanding, even the next day."

  • "Great to find a charming restaurant with really good food and a wecoming staff that was open on Christmas and serving their normal menu. Coming from New York, we prefer to eat later and many of the restaurants we tried in Scottsdale discouraged us from an 8 pm reservation. Tagging was full at 8 pm, the staff was welcoming and the menu was great. We really enjoyed the restaurant and will definitely be back on our next visit to Scottsdale."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "They had a price fixe option and that's what I selected along with 2 others in the party while one did a la cart. The selections were good but wish there was a little more variety . We enjoyed a bottle of prosecco with our meal. I would like to come back to try from the menu. Love the location FireSky"

  • "I went here for a family dinner on the day of my graduation from ASU. The entire experience at this restaurant was phenomenal, to quickly and efficiently reserving a table online to the amazing specials on the menu. 5 stars all around, would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect formal Italian dining experience."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "I have eaten at Taggia twice the ambience is amazing! The food is good, not fantastic, the menu is limited and the food preparation is on a moderate level. I visit Italy often and love Italian food, so I was hoping to find Taggia's food authentic. My opinion is that they really need to change their dishes and have a bit more variety. I don't like it when restaurants try to be too gourmet and they just can't live up to it. It's better to get back to basics, if they can't deliver really amazing original food."

  • "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."

  • "Enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Taggia. The turkey and stuffing were excellent. We plan to go back for another dinner."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Would not recommend , went for thanksgiving dinner . Service was poor and uncaring from the hostess all the way to the manager who was serving some meals, since our own waiter was rather inattentive. They brought my husband a fork to eat his crime brûlée, my pumpkin tart had something green in it , looked like a shred of lettuce, and the rest of the dinner was extremely mediocre and served with complete indifference. There was zero ambiance, in fact with the clatter of the kitchen we felt like we were eating in a canteen. Hugely disappointing - would never return."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The special was a seafood risotto and it smelled fishy. The waiter did not tell us about another special and we overheard it at another table. The staff was quick to get us to order and slow to visit us after we were served. This was the second time we have been there that we had to flag down a staff member to get our waiter. The wine service was also slow . You had to ask for bread and it was slow to arrive as well. The caesar salad was real good. I do not like to complain but we will not be going back there again."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The burrata appetizer was excellent but the main course did not measure up. While the three scallops were cooked just right, the risotto lacked flavor and seemed dense and starchy. Likewise the orecchiette was undercooked (think gnocchi chewy), and a bit cheesy. All the ingredients seemed fresh. I would try again, because it is a beautiful resort setting, but disappointed this first time."

  • "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!"

  • "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"
