    Really enjoyed out dinner at Tutti Santi. They had, by far, the best gnocci's I've ever had. They also had some interesting sauces, including a walnut based sauce, which I compare to a brown butter sauce with some delicate flavors of walnut. The service and ambience were excellent. But most of all I will remember the gnocci.

    My friends and I love this restaurant, however, twice I have made reservations in plenty of advance notice that I have requested a booth in the bar area. On two fairly recent occasions we have arrived only to find that they have given all the booths to others and the hostess wasn't especially friendly in telling us that it wasn't possible for us to have a booth - one was Valentine's evening and the other was a regular evening. I feel that when I have made reservations in advance and made a request, they have acknowledge that request, it should be fulfilled.

    Eating here is a guaranteed great meal. Nice sized portions, reasonable pricing and terrific staff make for a wonderful evening. Guiseppe took time to chat with us for a minute even though he was very busy. Truly a spot not to miss when you are in town. I visit Phoenix 8-10 times per year and always try to get to Tutti Santi.

    We have been in 3 Tutti Santi restaurants on our visits to Phoenix and this one is by far the best for service and food. We were impressed that everyone including the bus boys asked how our experience was. We are particularly fussy about the preparation of fish. Too often it is dry. Not at this restaurant, it was prepared to perfection.

    Turtti Santi is one of our all time favorite Italian restaurants. All the menu items including fish and veal dishes are strong, However, the pasta dishes are sensational. My biggest dilemma when I go is which pasta dish to order. This time I went with the Ravioli alla Nina - great choice. These are probably the best raviolis I have ever had including restaurants in Italy. The gnocchi, lasagna, and rigatoni are as good. All meals are closed by a complimentary shot of Sambuca. Saluti.

    After Reading and hearing of all the good reviews for this restaurant we made a reservation for New Year's Eve. We were very disappointed with the food. The atmosphere was good (kind of a homey feel to it) but the food was nothing special at all. Magiano's or Spinato's would have been better. Most of the pasta dishes were dry with no flavor at all. Sad, because we had great anticipation and higher expectations. Save the $50 per person......

    We have been coming to Tutti Santi for years as it is a very short distance from our home. Nina makes the word's best "bolognese" and her other choices are great as well. We enjoy the $2.00 off appetizers for "Happy Hour" (the escargot is particularly yummy) and the service is always impeccable (Luisa is a gem). A little pricey for a "casual" night out, but well worth it on the taste buds. Our only complaint is that the wines are super expensive, wish that they had a reasonably priced "house red".

    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.
