About Pasta Brioni

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.

first time visit, I have eaten Pasta Brioni at catered parties. While overall most was good, the chicken gorgonzola was a bit ordinary. Our server was either stoned or just not very smart or both. Really slow on drinks, water refill never happened, had to place our entire order twice, the second time he decided to write it down. Disappointing due to service. He did not know the menu too well either. Food or drinks.

Wonderful food. The entree was one of the specials for the night - Chicken Picasso. It was a thin slice of chicken covered with a slice of eggplant , roasted red pepper , asparagus and top with mozzarella cheese. It was great. The other entree was Veal With mushrooms and Marsala Sauce. That also was great and is a classic We always make it a must when we are in the area.

Everything in the new dining room was perfect! It is so, so nice to have a restaurant dining room that doesn't have TVs booming, a rowdy bar in the dining room, and all glass walls. It is private, great for a business luncheon or dinner, lunch or dinner with a friend, and even for romantic dining. I'm just hoping that when the lounge indoor/outdoor area open for business, the noise won't carry over into the new dining room!

The food was very good!
The waiter we had was so unconcerned about us...we had to wave our arms at him to get his attention. This really put a damper on our evening. It was a Monday night, but really!

Not having been to Pasta Brioni in quite a few years, I was very disappointed in this visit. The restaurant and food were NOT as good as on previous visits, however the prices were just as high if not higher! Probably won't go again.

Someone told us Pasta Brioni was good again. We had to try it. I had my old standby, chicken martini. Not even close. A bit mushy, maybe to much flour, I don’t know but it just did not taste the same nor was it good. Oh well, we tried. Think I’ll go back to Franco’s

We chose Pasta Brioni to celebrate our 41st Wedding Anniversary. We decided to come early since it was not close to our home. Early arrival means the place was quiet and the waitstaff were ready, willing and able to start. Evan, our waiter was sociable and very attentive to our needs. That was a plus because we didn't have to be concerned about the waiter's ability.
Since it was also Restaurant Week, we had a variety of entrees from which to choose as well an appetizer and dessert. We were never rushed and were able to enjoy the delicious meal served. We actually brought our desserts home to savor for another time.
The evening was quite enjoyable and worthy of a celebration.
We will be back and have planned to bring a few others with us.

We went for AZ Restaurant Week. There was a wide variety of items to choose from for the entrees, something for everyone, from chicken to veal to pasta to seafood. The caprese salad was delicious and the kalamata olives and sun-dried tomatoes were a nice addition. Portions were large. I was able to enjoy the rest of my salad for a lunch. Both the cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake were delectable. Definitely a place to experience. Attentive wait staff.

The staff was great. Attentive and polite. The food was okay but not worth the 135.00 tab with 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and wine. The sauce for the spaghetti tasted like a store bought and then was doctored. The noodles were over done. The calamari appetizer was terrific, the warm rolls were outstanding and my dinner salad was cold/fresh and great. Overall disappointed in the pasta sauce and over cooked noodles. I may try their deli next door.

This is a neighborhood gem. The food is tasty and the service is great. Plenty of variety on the menu so you can keep coming back. I had the veal shiitake which was wonderful. It is an interesting upgrade on veal marsala. Good cocktails, good wine and good food.

So enjoyed finding a restaurant where you can enjoy conversation as well as good food. This restaurant has a good variety of choices, and quite large portions. Easy to share dishes here.
Servers pleasant, atmosphere pleasant, and we had a very pleasant Saturday night out. Will
return, but will keep it a secret in order to keep the lines from forming!

So, I haven't dined here for many years after moving across town...but when a friend finished up a paleo diet and wished for spaghetti and meatballs to celebrate its end, I knew Brioni was where we had to go. This place never disappoints; why have I been away so long?!? Generous portions of one authentic, delicious dish after another were devoured by our table. The service is (and has always been) impeccable. I'll be back soon to enjoy PB again.

Had heard so much about this place and it was just okay. Average. We had Linguini Pescatore and Chicken piccata. The cannolis were awful, coffee was served cold. The crowd is definitely the older than 70 group likely due to the neighborhood and strip mall it sits in.

always like pasta brioni. my spaghetti & meatballs had too much sauce and the other party ordered shrimp with pasta..problem was all the tails were left on the shrimp so made it very difficult to eat.
even the rolls were too hard..a disappointing meal.
