Italian
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.

One of the best Italian meals we have had in years. Our waiter Mike gave us excellent service. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

From the moment we walked on the door, we felt like we were at an Italian family’s home. The employees we are warm and inviting. The service was print and attentive (but not too much). The food was delicious — homemade pasta. It was busy, yet were able to have a conversation without being too loud, so conversations were easy. Definitely will return to this neighborhood gem that has been there for 30 years!

Would not recommend the four cheese pasta it was so gross. The food could’ve been a little better. The server was amazing and the hostess accommodated us right away. The food runner was very rude didn’t even explain what we were eating.

We luckily found an opening at 5:45 for three on Valentines Day, outside seating. Everything about the dinner experience was perfect. Service by Mighty Mike was top-notch. Great recommendations, friendly and accommodating; didn’t rush us, and his timing was spot-on. I’ll definitely go back for everything, from the Old Fashioned, caprese salad, lasagna, rigatoni, asparagus, Chianti, and especially the Osso Bucco. Tiramisu to finish was so creamy and delicious. Great family atmosphere.

Great place. Food was delicious. Service was amazing. We were in an out within the hour on Valentine’s Day. The only thing is we weren’t sure what the theme of the place was but that didn’t bother us. We will definitely be back.

The food and service was wonderful. They sat us in the bar, and that has little ambiance. The carpeting in the restaurant is shabby and threadbare, and really should be replaced if possible. But overall we had a nice time and as stated the food and service were excellent! Best cannoli I have had in many years.

We had a great pre-Valentines Day meal. My veal shitake dish was very good. The veal was lean and tender with a nice white wine sauce.

Several years ago, Pasta Brioni was one of our favorite local restaurants. Having moved a short distance further away, it somehow got lost on our radar screen. This past weekend, we revsited and were delighted to discover it has become even better than it's own high standard. The ambiance has gone a bit upscale, the service was excellent, we could actually carry on a conversation and be heard by our dinner companions, and the Chicken Martini was an absolute must. And all this was reasonably priced. Mike, the owner, has put together a wonderful dining venue that should not be missed.

In a way it was typical Italian, but better! Many of their dishes have extra ingredients to make it tasty and more interesting than typical Italian - but you can still get the typical dishes also. They also say they make their own pasta daily and it was very tasty.
It's a little difficult to find as it's basically in the parking lot of the Sprouts Grocery store, but you can't see it from the street. It's a nice quiet atmosphere where you can actually hear what your table-mates are saying!

We were a party of 6. All of our food came out hot & at the same time. The couple who was splitting 2 dishes were impressed by the sizes of their 1/2 portions. Everyone enjoyed their food, but I loved mine. It was maybe the best eggplant Parmesan I have had.
It’s too bad that their isn’t more room in the restaurant as it is a bit crowded. Luckily none of the other patrons were too noisy.

The food and service were amazing! Seriously some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had. We had a party of eight and everyone loved their selections. We also tried every dessert and they were all homemade and outstanding. Highly recommend!

The food was very good. Came fast and delicious--homemade pasta! The salad was good and the bread/rolls that are free are amazing! However, the service was horrible. The waitress only came to take the order and took 15 minutes from when she brought the check to come get it and 10 more minutes to bring it back. Do not expect it to be kind/friendly wait staff as the waitress was extremely rude. Other staff members also would gather near the kitchen are and complain about people eating (which was unprofessional).

We food this place through Google and had no idea what we were getting into. Our party of 5 arrived early for our reservation so we went to the bar for a drink 1st. We were greeted by the bartender, Michael, he got us a quick round of drinks and we told him that we were going to have dinner and we were just a little early for our reservation he offered to sit us early. For dinner, the have the tables in the bar and also tables in a fancier side. Michael told us that if we stayed on the bar side he would be our server. We already had a great repor going with him so we are on the bar side. We ended up ordering fried ravioli and some other appetizers and then 5 different entries between us. All of the appetizers and each of the entries was incredible, only 2 things beat the quality of the food, the 1st was the HUGE portion sizes and the 2nd was great service that we got from Michael.
This is now a place that we will go to every time I am in town and the people that were with us have stated this will be their place to go all special occasions, ei anniversaries birthdays etc.

We've been going to Pasta Brioni for more than 25 years! We love the atmosphere, the service from our waiter was outstanding and the food was very good. The only reason I didn't give it a (5) star rating was because my husband didn't "love" his. I thought the meat balls (my favorite thing) were a little dry, but I would still recommend it and we will absolutely be back. Could have been just an off night!
