If you’ve ever eaten at a family-run Italian restaurant back East, you’ll appreciate what Pasta Brioni is all about. From the second you walk in the door to this Scottsdale establishment, the management and wait staff treat you like family – in fact, it seems that there are so many regulars at Pasta Brioni that many of them may be family. Rich wood paneling and a gorgeous wood bar, white linen tables, stained glass lights and Rat Pack music playing all add to this incredibly inviting ambiance.

Good food - slow service to start - left stuff on the table after appetizers we did not need - could return when in that area.

Always solid. Good service and good food. Also can’t beat the happy hour food specials if you sit at the bar. We brought our toddler with us and had a nice meal on the patio.

Met a friend after work. This is a special place where I went with my husband who died in April. Still feels like the friendly neighborhood spot with great food and service. So happy to share this spot with friends so I can continue to visit.

Our meals were very good. We each had a parmesan (chicken, eggplant and veal). Large portions with pasta and a tasty marinara.

I erred and made the reservation for Fri instead of the busiest Saturday they have had in some time...and they still went out of their way to accommodate us. This owner operated restaurant is outstanding...such nice and helpful employees and absolutely wonderful cuisine! We both had their signature Chicken Martini this time and it was its usual delicious self. Our salads were just the right touch--just the right size for a filling Italian dinner. We do love this place and will be back!

Amazing local long standing joint. Authentic menu with well balanced modern twists. Arguably the best Italian in Scottsdale.

As a Chicagoan who has enjoyed great food in neighborhood Italian restaurants of my hometown, it was very nice to find a place in Scottsdale that had the ambiance, service, and food quality of the places I've come to enjoy. We sat in the indoor booths nearest the bar because they had that old-school feel to them.

The bartenders and wait staff were wonderful; it was like we were old friends.

I started with the Zuppa di Mussels, which were outstanding, on both nights, and enjoyed the Linguine Pescatore on the first evening and the Osso Buco on the second. And it was great to end the evening with an espresso and canoli - and a grappa! Really enjoyed myself there and highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for some real Italian food while they're in Scottsdale.

Dined for the first time with friends on August 20th. The food and selection was great but the food itself was terrific. Portions were large and tasted great the second time at home. We'll be back

I love this place. I took my friends for my going away dinner and we had a good time. They experienced it for the first time and everyone vowed to go back. Our waiter was amazing and attentive. Even a little comical. Our food was as expected... delicious! I love this place n I am glad I celebrated my farewell from AZ here!

We went there for a birthday dinner. The food was good although a little overpriced. The service was impeccable. The ambience was okay on the bar side but the main dining room was better. Overall it was a good experience.
