    One should never, ever, have to wait for the wine to cool down before drinking it. My red was served at something like 85 degrees. This borders on criminal negligence. That said, the food and service were first-rate. But I'll just have iced tea next time. Or maybe water.

    Zoran and his wife run the place and provide outstanding food and excellent friendly service. Make sure you order the orichetti seafood pasta as either an appetizer or the main course. the food is excellent and the wine selection is once . Everything is reasonably priced.

    This restaurant is a 1 of a kind, it has an upscale feel, but not too formal. It has 5 star food, but reasonable prices. The absolute perfect ambience for our special occasion dinner. Would recommend to anyone trying to find that perfect restaurant that has casual class with superior service, great menu, including some organic, vegetarian, and gluten free choices, also the best hearty, nicely portioned appetizers, salads, pasta, seafood, meat dishes, variety of fabulous specials, tantalizing desserts. 1st class in my book, best restaurant in town. You just can't go wrong. I ordered the rib eye steak special unaware that it would be the best steak I've ever had. Between all of us, we ordered a little of everything. We were absolutely WOWed!!

    We went to celebrate our anniversary and Tommy V's was a perfect venue for it. Excellent food, friendly staff, great wine and some live music. Normally I am not a huge live music fan because it's hard to talk, but it wasn't too loud and they played some great Sinatra which is always good. Price was very reasonable for a good meal like that in Scottsdale and we would definitely go back. My fave was the Carpaccio appetizer (amazing!).

    Ambience is very nice, upscale but not snooty or fake. Wine list is way extensive and reasonably priced - I sell wine for a living and know what I'm talking about. Food was perfect from start to finish. Zin braised short ribs may be the most tender and flavorful meat I've ever had. My wife thought her ravioli-something-or-other was fabulous. Place was nearly empty so our waiter kind of hovered over us the whole time, very chatty young fellow. A little much but he was so sincere we didn't mind. Food prices seemed very reasonable, especially given the locale. Would go again in a heartbeat next time we get to Scottsdale.

    Wide choice of not so small salads and entrees with $5 glass of wine made Tommy V's a treat. Outstanding wait staff made sure the leftover Pacific snapper would go home with a special sauce that made the reheated fish remain moist and flavorful.

    We chose this restaurant for our outing because of it's diversified menu & central location. It surpassed our expectations, especially as we arrived while the happy hour menu was still available, so we dined quite well at a great price. Our server, Tyler, was excellent - friendly, knowledgable, attentive without hovering. They seated us in a separate area, so our table of five could converse easily, hearing each other and not disturbing other diners. Bistro Tender & Panzanella Salad, Butternut Squash Ravioli - big hits. Limoncello Sorbet was outstanding. Bruschetta Caprese and Lemon Almond Torte with Flaky Butter Crust were disappointingly average. The restaurant has a slick, urban atmosphere without being too sterile. Definitely go back

    I took a date and we were very impressed, the service was great, food very good, ambiance good, and price reasonable. But there were a couple of things that took away slightly from what could be better. The interior has sold surfaces and so a large table with only moderate noise reverberates inside. The table are not that good for a couple to have a date, the way they are oriented means you are a long way from her/him. I would still go back but have a better understanding of what to expect

    We went to Tommy V's for the first time and almost everything was great. They have a reasonably priced wine list, a great chef's board appetizer, and a really tasty pasta trio. Unfortunately they overcooked my steak (medium well as opposed to medium rare) but they took it off the bill. However, the sauteed spinach and pasta that came with my meal was excellent. We will be returning.

    I've lived in the neighborhood for eight months now, and finally had a chance to check out Tommy V's! It was a very nice first time experience. My Pear & Organic Mixed Green Salad, was delicious. I rarely eat pasta, but was in the mood for their homemade Organic Spaghetti & Meatballs, which did not disappoint. Liked the spaghetti sauce too, as the sauce really made the spaghetti "pop" so-to-speak. I will be back again to try something new. The entire staff provided terrific customer service from the moment I walked in the door, to the moment that I walked out. Keep up the good work! Good customer service is appreciated.

    Was seeking gluten-free Italian food and discovered this restaurant via online searching. It was fantastic on every level. The owner personally called me in advance of the meal to ensure that the menu had a variety of gluten free offerings. Tommy V's didn't disappoint. They claim their spaghetti is "better than your mom used to make" and they were right on. It was DELICOUS and you'd never know the noodles were gluten free. I intend to take friends and family here in the future. The service as also exceptional.

    Tommy V's food is outstanding. I have gotten to know the owner and he makes us a fantastic pasta dish we eat as an appetizer that is not on the menu. It is Orrichetti pasta with crab, shrimp and scallops. I have had the sea bass and rhe chicken parmigiana ; all of which are outstanding. To top it all of they have a nice wine selection and everything is very reasonably priced. One of my favorite restaurants!

    We planned this night for restaurant week and ate from this menu. My friend’s pasta dishes were both served cold. They did a good job of actually giving her new food vs. re-heating but it was still disconcerting. WE also had Moscow mules and those were really good I had the halibut and it was a little bit dry. Other than that the food was good. It is a neighborhood restaurant so I would head there for another meal

    Tommy V's serves up hand made italian food like other great restaurants in Phoenix. The wine selections and cocktail menu rivaled many restaurants that we've been to. The desserts provided a nice end to our meal and weren't oversized so we didn't feel guilty after finishing dessert. The best part of our experience at Tommy V's was the service. We've been waited on many times, but great service comes when your server continues to show up every 3 to 4 minutes to make sure water was in our cups, clean plates and silverware provided, and no dirty plates left on the table. The best part was our waiter smiled the whole time and he waited on 7 people in our group and made us feel at home. We'll be back for the food and service!!

    Four of us had dinner on Sunday night and each of us were very pleased with the evening. We were seated promptly and greeted immediately by our server (nice young man, sorry I don't have his name). This was our first visit to the restaurant and we were impressed with the regular menu and the Restaurant Week menu. Each of us chose from the RW menu, but added the Chef's board appetizer- very large and tasty selection of cheese and meats. Our dinners were delicious- the short ribs literally melted in the mouth. All servings were generous in size and delicious. We will be back!

    Occasion: Mother's Day dinner Service: seated by the restaurant owner's wife, then she stayed and visited with us for a few minutes, and checked on us about halfway through the meal. Waiter was attentive but not obtrusive Food: upscale Italian, not overly complex, properly prepared, nice presentation, fresh ingredients, portion sizes good (not too big, not too small), tasty food. The wine list was solid and the wine prices were very reasonable--similar to what you would pay in a wine or grocery store without the 2-3 X typical restaurant markup. Overall: we will definitely go back!

    This was our first time but not last at Tommy V's. The service at our outside table was excellent, with our waiter dealing directly with our 3yr-old grandson. He knew how to make him happy......and therefor us! The food was also very good. The special 3 pasta dish is excellent except for a bit too much heavy sauce. An easy-going, very good dinner experience.
