Mouth watering homemade pastas! The food was wonderful from the apps to the dessert. There was a great wine selection as well. Service was wonderful and they made us feel as though we were the only customers in the restaurant! Would highly recommend and would definitely return!

After a nice appetizer, the pasta and pizza and dessert were all just okay and service was not particularly attentive. We won't be back.

The place is run down, looks and feel like a diner. Menus are dirty and tired. Pizzas are sub-par. Bar is awful, they couldn't even serve vodka tonic, attempted twice and undrinkable... Will never be back, can't believe it is rated as high. We invited friends to join us, it was embarrassing !

Outdoor covered seating with lights and terrific dinner music. If you like extra thin crust pizza like you get in Italy, come here. Really nice server with great energy and very helpful with the menu.

Made a reservation and was told they only had seats in the attached gelato parlor. Forced to sit near the entrance at small tables with constant foot traffic. This table was not in the restaurant and should have been noted as such. There are better places for Italian food and I don’t think I ever need to go back. Gelato in North Scottsdale at Hayden and Pinnacle is significantly better as well.

They would not accept my reservation When I turned up even though it was confirmed, the hostess was fairly rude about it and ignored request to go on the waiting list . I have eaten at the sister restaurant and food was good there albeit a little expensive for pizza.

Best pizza in Scottsdale. My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon so every anniversary or birthday we go to this amazing Italian restaurant. The pizza and pasta taste like Italy.

We enjoyed our visit--the food was excellent. We were caught off guard in that we received no warning before the kitchen closed, and it seemed we were expected to leave right at 10, as chairs were stacked and folded around us at 10 on the dot. We would have expected someone, our server or the host, to tell us, "The kitchen is closing in a 15 minutes, if you would like to order anything else." Instead, our last few minutes at the restaurant were unpleasant.

My husband thinks Polo pizza is the best in Phoenix. If I had any concern, it was with the front desk (hostess station). They do not seem on top of things and they were not very welcoming.

Pizzas were good. They sat us on a corner 2 table person for 2 people even though tables were open. It was so hard to have a good dinner. My pizza was barely warm. Appetizers were horrific.
We have been here many times when we are in town. The Gelato place next door is outstanding.

Waitress rarely came by table, had to flag her down anytime we needed something. Waited 40 minutes for our appetizer after being told it’d be out in 5 minutes about 10 minutes into our wait. Food came out as the appetizer was being delivered. Wanted a second glass of wine but never could get waitress to come over. Planned to order celebratory dessert but instead the check was brought with no mention of dessert. It was like everyone was too scared to talk to us because the service was garbage and rather than apologize and explain what happened it was easier to ignore us.

We were seated on the patio, that was great! Adequate heat, space and ambiance. Ordered drinks and appetizers. Drinks arrived, then, after a while the appetizers... not so appetizing. Ordered dinner, after a exceptionally long wait it arrived. Three pastas were cool, dry and unappetizing. The gluten free pizza was reported to be inedible... We won't be back!

Popular italian restaurant with a limited menu based on pasta and pizza, some appetizers and excellent gelato. Both the pizza and pasta were very good. The service was a bit overwhelmed but delivered. A so so wine list with significant mark up

We made reservations for Dec31st.
2 out of the 4 entrees were disappointing and one was especially underwhelming
Server could not have care less and was rushing us out.
I suspect we won’t return.

if the food was outstanding...we would be willing to accept the noise level and lack of ambiance...but it is not. possibly the weakest italian food in scottsdale. the pasta & fagioli soup was flavorless. the caesars salad was about what i'd expect at denny's. the pizza was so soggy that when you picked it up it hung like a wet rag. i'll give an A to their promotion department for keeping the place so busy in spite of the lousy food!
