    There were 3 couples at dinner. Started with Antipasto for 2, two orders of Escargot, and an order of Calamari. They through a soup in for free. (although I think it was a mistake from another table) The martini's were excellent, then a couple bottles of the house Chianti. (which by the way was also excellent) The entree's rocked. Two of us had the special Ciappino. Sooo Good. The rest were off the menu and also excellent. (fresh pasta is the best). Tiramisu, cheesecake, and a really good Cannoli with fresh coffee and a couple cognacs. All in all a great dining experience.

    I couldn't have asked for better service. I wasn't happy with the first table and they moved us to a great private spot. They fawned over me as it was my birthday but everyone in my party left saying that they would take other friends there because the service was really that great. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

    It's always delicious food. Servers are the greatest; Funny, friendly, attentive. I do not believe I have ever had anything but good food here! I know it's a zillion degrees outside but try the homemade soups. They are the best in town! Also, the ravioli, my favorite, is wonderful.

    We had a very attentive server. Our Italian friends from Prescott chose to return to Tutti Santi because of the delicious food that had experienced before. This was a Sunday evening and we were among the first to be seated for dinner. As clients increased the service was very less attentive. I think there were 2 servers to cover the entire dining room. Toward the end of our dinner, our guests (middle 80's in age) were getting agitated because we couldn't get a server to bring our check so we could get the folks on the road. I guess for older folks the noise level is aggrevating for conversation. My hearing aids were more of a nusence than a help for conversation.

    I have been waiting for some time to try the food at Tutti Santi. Based on their website I had high expectations particularly since the owner Nina came from Italy. I was disappointed. The appetizers were good although the caprese salad was average at best. Even the garlic bread was a disapointment! I ordered veal parmigiana and it was average at best. My wife ordered chicken franciais and she didn''t eat the chicken because it was tough. The pasta I ordered was the only exception as I had fetuccini alfredo and it was delicious. Needless to say we will not be going back there!

    We had been going to Tutti Santi's in Dobson Ranch for years. They closed we have been to the on on 16th Street 3 times. The first ok, second time disappointing, 3rd WONT GO BACK. Food was mediocre.. We had the Veal Oscar and my husband did not even realize that it was crab on the veal, he thought it was bread crumbs. Definitely canned crab, tasteless and finely ground up .Service was atrocious, Waiter was rude and sarcastic. Forgot to bring our desert and when he split the check he put both appetizers on one bill.

    I would give the food here 6 stars if possible. Nina, the owner, makes the pasta by hand every morning. Her love for the food shows. She personally greeted us and spent time chatting. This is delicious, old-world cooking that has been refined through the generations and is becoming harder to find. Very special! Don't miss Tutti Santi for the highest quality traditional Italian cuisine possible!

    My husband and I were treating a Mexican Mom and her little boy, from Guaymas. Little Luis had just been told by the Shriner's doctors that the 8-year treatment he had been through was finally at an end. He can now walk with no apparatus and he even plays baseball! When we asked how he wanted to celebrate, he said "Spaghetti!." So we chose Tutti Santi. When the waiters heard about our celebration, one of them came over to our table and sang a song to Luis, in Spanish. It was fabulous. The food and wine were great -- and the spaghetti was perfect.

    We had been to another Tutti Santi in Scottsdale several years ago and although good didn't remember it as exceptional. Well, on Thursday we were here with another couple and all four of us are now raving about it. The food was exceptional as was the service. It wasn't real busy and the waiter was very engaging. My wife had the red snapper and loved it. I had a chicken with mushroom sauce dish that was great in flavor and presentation. The other two had the house chicken dish and raved about it. We will definitely go back when we are next in town.

    Of course it was quite busy being Valentine's Day, but the food was awesome as always. Our waiter was very friendly and extremely attentive, even though there was a lot going on that night. The bus boy was also on top of things, making sure our bread was plentiful and our water glasses were full. We always enjoy our dinners at Tutti's!

    The prices are steep for what you get; $17.95 for spaghetti is a little expensive. There are other Italian restaurants that have food that's just as good, but for a lot less. This is Phoenix, not San Francisco, Rome, or San Diego.

    I love this place. This is actually a good size restaurant tucked into a corner of a strip mall. Once you walk in, the place opens up. If you get nothing else, you have to get the mussels in white wine & garlic. We wanted to lick the bowl, that sauce was incredible. We each had a special for that evening and both were unforgettable. From the warm garlic bread brought to each table, to the fresh filled cannoli for dessert, each course was better than the other. Competent, friendly service. It doesn't get any better.

    We went for wife's 66th birthday. Nice ambiance, real Italians. A wonderful well priced Chianti. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was great with the classic garlic bread & simple but perfect salad. I ordered a special spinach, mushroom & crab stuffed Pork Loin. It was presented like a scaloppine , lightly breaded & with a light tomato garlic sauce. , Melting the combination of lush flavors in your mouth & served with tender crisp fresh veggies & a small side of penne with marinara. My birthday girl had a pasta with veggies in garlic and olive oil that she just raved about, but we both do see garlic as a food group. Really, fresh garlic, top notch sun dried tomato, fresh mushrooms . Then the complimentary anise liquor and a wonderful tiramasu.

    Walking into the restaraumt,I was hit with cigarette smoke from the employees hanging outside of the front door. I was ready to leave but decided with my guest to try a glass of wine. The restaurant smelled old abs dirty. The bar seats 5 people and we waited while the bartender watched a football game. The atmosphere was dark and dirty. We finally got our drinks and things began to look up. We ended up being seated and were served fresh bread. Our appetizers and dinner were absolutely delicious! I'd invite friends to eat here but I'm just too afraid of what might be lurking in the kitchen or bathroom. I stayed but won't return. Too bad. The food made us stay but the smell and filth are what this review ended up being about.

    Three generations of our family enjoyed our Christmas Eve dinner from the ravioli appetizers to the spumoni for dessert. The gnocchi were as light as clouds and the salad was a perfect mix of greens and the dressing not at all bitter as some serve their balsamic. The waiter was personable and always attentive. Overall a great experience for a Christmas Eve away from home.

    Maybe it was the Holiday, although it did not seem busier than normal, but the service left a lot to be desired. Plates were brought to the table in a very haphazard way with delays. One order was missed. Normally a great place for a special occasion. We'll see if this was an aberration next time.
