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.

The staff is friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is lovely- a very welcoming environment. The dinner rolls were stale, which was a huge disappointment as we are bread lovers. But the pasta is exceptionally good- paper thin, fresh, delicious. The breaded chicken dish was soggy but flavorful. Dessert- possibly the best flourless chocolate cake that exists on planet Earth! So- a mostly terrific meal but some room for improvement.

We have always had a great experience and the food is always very good, but my daughter ordered the penne with chicken and the chicken was very rubbery and she did not enjoy it at all. I also tasted it and was displeased. The rest of our food however was delicious

We love Pasta Brioni. We try to go there once a week. It's one of our favorite restaurants in all of Scottsdale, and there are a lot of great restaurants. Especially for Italian food. Always great fresh food, delicious sauces and wonderful wait staff.

I took my 8 yr old granddaughter here for a special "grown up" birthday dinner. She did great and the staff was very attentive once they found a seat for us. They even brought out a beautiful slice of birthday cake with candle, complimentary. This was our first time here...I found Pasta Brioni online, while looking for a nearby Italian restaurant after spending the day at the Aquarium with her and it was a very pleasant surprise. I will definitely come back for a grown up date!

Food was average at best and service was worse. There prices don't justify the quality, probably would get better at Olive garden for a lot less. Waiter ignored us to another table that might have had more money to spend. Never came back to the table after placing the order. I think a manager came over after I waited 15 minutes for a glass of wine. The wine was no charge but would rather have good service than free stuff

There is not a more delicious Italian restaurant in our experience. Consistently a family owned and operated restaurant since its inception, the current owner started as a busboy in the original place. The menu choices, preparation and presentation are creative and so appetizing. You feel welcome as you walk in the door. Highly recommend!

Three people. Ordered salads, to be followed by soups. Soups arrived very shortly after salads. We returned them as being far too early. Different waiter brought them back promptly. Returned them again.
Had to corner a bus boy for bread after waiter did not bring bread.
Food good but kitchen was out of kilter as it was too busy.

I’m a snowbird that has enjoyed Brioni’s for years. Service is fantastic and food is even better. I make no recommendations from the menu except to keep coming back till you’ve tried one of everything. I have another reservation tonight, Which will be my third this month. I can’t get enough of Pasta Brioni.

Calamari was soggy, spaghetti used way too think of noodle...like udon. Fried foods were ok, chicken Parmesan was average to ok but again, the spag on the side was a disappointment.

It’s moderately ok....not a jewel.

First, a restaurant that takes your reservation & then tells you when you get there you have to wait 20 mins.has an issue. No host created a frenzied situation for servers that we're trying to seat patrons. Hady husband not gone back to inquire when we saw empty tables & still weren't seated, we may have just been forgotten.
Not the cleanest establishment. Food was decent, nothing special. Roasted red pepper appetizer was the highlight if the food. Wait staff was very good and dealing with the craziness as best they could.
