A chique getaway at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Excellent food and attentive service. Unfortunately, the “outdoor” seating is way too warm in the summer without proper fans and misters.

Spinato’s Pizza is a must-visit for anyone who loves great pizza. Their thin-crust is crispy perfection, and the toppings are always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is cozy, and the menu has something for everyone, from classic Margherita to creative combos. Shoutout to our server, Dani, who was not only super friendly but also made sure our drinks were never empty—seriously, I think she has a sixth sense for that! Spinato's combines top-notch food with a laid-back vibe, making it the perfect spot for any pizza lover.

If you have not tried The Mick, you must! Food is so good! Their focaccia is THE best you will ever have! I have a dairy allergy, so the Chef/Owner prepared sea bass for me special and it was delicious! Their shrimp tartine is my husband's favorite!

About the restaurant
Every ingredient that goes into our menu must be of the highest quality. Our prime-grade beef is part of what makes us the steakhouse Scottsdale residents and visitors are talking about. We offer several different sizes of cuts, and our chef has crafted numerous toppings to enhance your experience. Our side dishes perfectly complement our entree selection, and many guests often rave about our Alaskan king crab mac and cheese and our corn créme bruleé. We also serve a selection of fresh seafood from our raw bar, such as freshly shucked oysters, Maine lobster tail and iced Alaskan king crab. All of our steaks are served a la carte, letting each guest personalize their plate. Our full bar offers an extensive wine selection.

A well trained coordinated staff...a real team effort! Food was well prepared and artistically presented. Management was present and attentive. The only suggestion I have is that when a staff member called the following day to check on our level of satisfaction, she was NOT the right person for the responsibility...her voice and manner reflected an attitude of her job being a boring task and left one with a feeling that the outreach was not at all genuine. I'm sure that was not management's intention so I would recommend that she be monitored during that function and corrective action taken. Enjoyed the experience and look forward to returning.
