Diner Reviews
  • "The kitchen crew behind Virtu does a good job even when the main chef Gio Osso is not around. The problem that our table experienced was lack of experience from our server who at times did not listen to the requests coming our table. The one head scratching component when leaving Virtu was did we receive value for our money? Yes the food quality and flavors are quite good, but the portions were small and the wine selection limited. Call me old fashion, but I expect a bit more for $75 dollars besides a quarter of appetizer, one entree, a quarter of a dessert and two glasses of wine. So, one leaves Virtu with quality of food but not quantity of consumption while saying to oneself...was this value for your money."

  • "The food and drinks were amazing (this was my second visit), but we were seated at an outdoor table - which in July, is something you need to prepare for. The inside of the restaurant was very loud. The hostess did try to call me ahead of time to let me know about the outdoor seating. I would definitely come back, when the weather is cooler."

  • "maybe because it's summer but our party of 4, who have loved Virtu this time were very disappointed and underwhelmed. The delicious pork chop of several months ago is now breaded, flattened, fried served with salad greens..& dry. I must have misread what was on the menu. I want to return to try again, but dont know if other diners will join me. Also, the "steak dish" was minuscule. Desserts were good."

  • "Always have a great meal. Need to try some other appetizers besides the Octopus but it's outstanding. The presentation of the scallops and sides that come with it are perfect balance. Small bistro is charming but very loud with full restaurant and too bad they can't dim lights. Still our number one place in Phoenix/Scottsdale though."

  • "We have been to Virtu 4 or 5 times now and each visit has a new and unique menu which makes this special, and each time the food is flawless both in terms of presentation and taste. Our daughter and son-in-law were visiting from NYC. When we see them we sample great New York restaurants, they consider Virtu as matching some of the best of NYC. Service was attentive, drinks are creative, menu items worth your time and attention. Mark this as one of the best in the Phoenix metro area."

  • "This was our fourth time here. Each time the food is terrific...interesting, creative and delicious. I had the duck last night and I am trying to figure out how soon I can get back for more. We invited some friends, one of whom is not a foodie. Did not realize it until we picked them up. Was worried, but her agreed to be a bit adventurous. We shared the asparagus, calamari, and asparagus, and he had the branzino. He ate all of his, part of his wife's, then asked when he could come back. We dined early since it can get pretty loud later."

  • "Service has greatly improved. Noise level is almost intolerable. No misters outside so not a reasonable summer option. Food was tasty but way over salted"

  • "We had been wanting to go here for a while. It was an amazing meal and certainly worth the wait. We had a variety of appetizers including the burrata and asparagus with duck egg- both wonderful. They had a mussels special that night that was outstanding. We did scallops and pasta carbonara for entrees and all were excellent. We are still dreaming of the sticky toffee cake for dessert. Probably one of the top three desserts I have ever had. Service was outstanding as well. Overall, an amazing meal!!"

  • "A friend of ours recommended the restaurant. Great recommendation. Food was great... Wine list was small but still had a good selection with some reasonable prices. Definitely will be back. My only complaint... I was not aware at the time of our reservation nor until we walked in that I had to request inside seating! Normally sitting out in the patio would not bother me... but now being summer time, the restaurant hold have advised us that our reservation would have us sitting on the patio... The meal would have been even more enjoyable. A misting system would be nice or I will wait to come back in the winter season."

  • "... being seated outside on a hot night in June certainly detracted. Even though we were in the shade and it was early evening (7:15 reservation), it was still over 100 degrees outside. When I made the reservation on Open Table I had no idea we would have to sit outside. By the end of the meal we were rushing to get out of there to get back to air conditioning! That having been said, this really is seriously good food. The "chef's snack" of pork rillette, whipped feta, and various pickled items was one of the best things I've eaten this year."

  • "I know it is not high season but that is no reason not to have an adequate wine stock or certain items not available at a restaurant of this calibre. Nothing was done about it . Also nothing was done concerning my husband' birthday. We were at the Mission and they were more enthusiastic and we have been staying at the Bespoke Inn and Cafe for our third night and eaten at virtu how many times....."

  • "Great waitress. The starters were very good, with some variety. Our main courses were all real good, except the pork chop which was very pedestrian. Overall a very nice spot, we are sure to be back ."

  • "We went to Virtu for our 8th anniversary. We sat outside, under the garden lights. It was very romantic and quiet. The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. We had the nicoise for an appetizer which was incredible. The main dishes were good. But the toffee pudding dessert was amazing. Drinks were great too. We will definitely be back for a date night!"

  • "Love, love this place for food and ambience. Unfortunately, when the inside is full, it can get quite noisy; however, dining outside is wonderful with a cool little patio and the best waitstaff in town! Food is incredible!"

  • "the noise level was high to the point a conversation was difficult. the service was slow and the waiter seemed disinterested. We felt cramped as the tables were too close together. I had the Ahi tuna and it was average while my wife at the pork item on the menu and it looked and tasted like a Shake and Bake receipe. I would not recommend this establishment. "

  • "The food was great and the ambience was fine. We went to the restraint on the recommendation of friends. The entire meal felt rushed like they were just trying to turn the table over quickly. Our whole meal from a bottle of wine through the first courses and then main entree last about 50 minutes. I felt like we were catching a play in NYC. It was a shame that we could not enjoy this restaurant a little longer."

  • "Rave comments from friends about excellent food at Virtu, but Restaurant Week's menu choices very disappointing. First course Octopus not measure up--tough and little flavor (later learned the outstanding Octopus offering was not on Restaurant Week choices). Plus, spaghetti appetizer was tasteless. Main courses better, but sea bass fillets were cut to thin. Neither dessert choices were memorable. Outstanding options needed on RW menu to draw back new customers. Wine choice good price, and server was outstanding! A "saving Grace" for the evening. Lastly, tables small and crowded, creating noisy setting. We were right by door servers used for patio, so hot air and disruptions were constant. "

  • "The brunch meal was great - memorable. The Classic Crepe and BBLT sandwich were delicious; the seasonings enhanced the dishes but didn't overwhelm the ingredients. I'm eager to return and explore more of the menu. "

  • "We had a wonderful dinner with great service. The portions were huge! Desert was simple and small but good as well. Our server was so sweet. They were out of the digestif I wanted so he brought me another one on the house! The strawberry vodka drink sounded interesting, and although I don't usually drink vodka I though I would try it. It lacked in complexity but was fruity and sweet.... Good for someone who doesn't enjoy the taste of booze (not me haha). All in all a great meal with wonderful ambiance and top-notch service. :)"

  • "A wonderful dinner on a beautiful evening on a garden patio. Service was slow and spotty but the food was delicious and they were larger portions than expected. The highlights were the Ice Queen cocktail and the fresh lemon (americanized) zabaglione with berries for dessert. (no Marsala wine and it was not warm). I must reiterate that the Ice Queen is the best specialty cocktail I've ever had. It's what a cosmopolitan would taste like if it was made by angels who don't like sweet drinks. Love the champagne foam on top and the black pepper, rhubarb, strawberry and balsamic touch give it an unexpected zing. Of course it has vodka too! I'll swing by just for that....soon."

  • "I love everything about Virtú. The Bespoke Inn is so adorable and quaint, while offering a luxury experience. Virtú just caries that through to the Nth degree. The food was creative, fresh, and flavorful. The craft cocktails were equally inventive, with top-notch ingredients. Yet, the atmosphere is truly relaxed and inviting. Phenomenal gem, tucked away off the beaten path."

  • "We had a great time dining here--the cocktails are creative and well prepared; the food options, particularly since it was restaurant week, were much more diverse than I thought they would be; server was charming and good humored. I particularly liked the bourbon based cocktails (their version of the sazerac was excellent) and the asparagus salad. I would go back! "

  • "Pork chop tasted like some kind of cleaning product was spilled on it. I should not have had to pay. Also, my 9 year old boy could only eat a small bowl of spaghetini but was charged for a full three courses, just like myself and his mom. There were no kid friendly menu choices. "

  • "but SO GLAD we did. the noise level was HIGH! it's a very compact place with hard surfaces, so noise is not absorbed. we were a little unnerved with the noise, had already ordered a drink......and decided to hang in. the FOOD was luscious! we were happy we stayed. this was a monday night so i wouldn't try to go on a weekend supposing that the space would be more filled, hence, more noise? there were very few tables occupied that night, too. soooo...we'll see next time! and there will be a next time."

  • "I had the pleasure of dining at Virtù for Sunday brunch, and then for Restaurant Week dinner Monday night. Both meals blew me away! Their brunch menu is exciting and reasonably priced (I spent 25$ for a meal, pastry, coffee, and tip). I had the frittata di pasta which was heaven on Earth. Eggs with angel hair pasta inside? Umm yes please! It also had roasted peppers, a yummy spicy sausage, and a generous dollop of ricotta cheese on top. For Restaurant Week I went with a friend and we shared all of our courses. My absolute favorite was the burrata with peaches and prosciutto. It was out of this world! So balanced with the crispy toast and peppery arugula. Every ingredient was fresh and flawless. Chef Osso really knows what he's doing. "

  • "After reading and hearing so many positive reviews about this place I was excited to try it. Perhaps my palette is unsophisticated, or perhaps the reviewers have no idea what they are talking about or perhaps our table of 5 diners got the dregs of the kitchen - but the food was mediocre at best. Not one of us left with a wish to return for another meal. The signature dish - grilled octopus, was dry, lacked significant flavor and did not deserve the praise that has been heaped on it. Our entrees did not please anyone. I will not return to Virtu, nor would I recommend it to anyone looking for a remarkable dining experience. If you want to spend a lot of money on mediocre food, passed off as gourmet - dine here. Not me."

  • "Virtu could have been a wonderful experience. The food was quite good, but the service was horrendous. It was not the fault of the people who work there - just not enough of them. Obviously the owner is trying to cut costs, but in the process completely ruined what would have been a nice evening. We tipped the waiter extremely well because we felt so sorry for him. He was repsonsible for 15+ tables with no help bussing the tables. Perhaps the owner saved money, but he lost what would have been a return customer. We will not be back. "
