Outstanding in every respect. This restaurant offers a wonderful farm-to-Table experience at very reasonable prices. The service was impeccable, and the wine list was very carefully chosen. Lots of nice art on the walls. If you want an authentic, locally owned restaurant, this is the place to visit and then return. I know we will. More

We really enjoy this restaurant - HOWEVER, that being said, please put the garlic shrimp pinenut appetizer BACK on the menu. THey used to make it as a pizza and it was on the menu, they now removed their pizza oven and took it off the menu. If you ask the waitress, the kitchen can make a similar appetizer (we order this as our meal) using the tortilla like they use on their cheese crisp. THey then put the cheese, garlic, shrimp and pinenuts on top and cook it. ITS DELICIOUS! If enough people ask for it they will put it on their menu again, and rename it since its not on pizza dough anymore, but like we say, using the tortilla instead. More

I enjoyed dinner with several clients at Alto's during a conference. The service was impeccable with special attention to detail for special requests. Drinks prepared by the bartender were perfect and the Gondolino Creme Brulee desserts were fabulous, complete with a cookie gondola coated on the bottom in chocolate with a chocolate oar. Highly recommend this venue if you're trying to impress your clients. Mine were delighted. Each attendee received a free gondolo ride after dinner! More

My husband and I came here for the Fathers Day Brunch (first time at this restaurant), and WOW! There was a beautiful variety of food, all amazingly delicious-from eggs to seafood to prime rib and everything that goes with those items. The ambience was elegant and relaxing with a guitarist playing up front. His choice of music was perfect for the occasion. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. The manager was always close by assuring everything was great for the patrons. We enjoyed our experience and the food so much, we are going to make Sonatas brunch a monthly thing. More

American | Central Scottsdale, Scottsdale

Our daughter was graduating from GCU with her Master's degree and we all came out to participate in the day of celebration. We wanted to have a fun family dinner after the ceremony so I looked up the choices in the area and liked the reviews on Canyon 49-and liked the fact that it was not only local was connected with the school to give us that "flavor". I was able to easily move our reservation up when we found out we were done earlier than expected. Our waiter was so attentive and such a pleasure to have at our table. The food was delicious-we had appetizers, main course, and even shared 3 desserts-everything was so good! The ambiance was casual but fun. It was starting to fill up when we left but the noise wasn't ever overwhelming. We found out there was a discount because she graduated-what a sweet bonus! And our meals came to less than what we anticipated! We would highly recommend this place if you are in the area! More
