Ate outside. Had the whole patio to ourselves. Nice view of the mountain. Street noise though. The grilled octopus app was delicious but portion was not worth the $15 Branzino and scallop dish were absolutely delicious. Very friendly and helpful server.

The food was of low quality and no taste. This place was recommended by two people in Phoenix but it was probably the worst italian food we have had in years.

Fun atmosphere, great service, and wonderful food. We had a reservation for outside, which is not covered and was sunny when we arrived. The staff was very helpful in finding us an indoor table while we started with drinks at the bar. Would definitely recommend and return again!

Really enjoyed the outdoor patio at EVO - especially as the sun went down. The waitress forgot about us briefly when we were the only ones outside, but she was really nice about it, and was great otherwise. The meatball appetizer was delicious, and we enjoyed our pasta dishes!

The food was perfect. It was some of the best Italian we have ever eaten. The meatballs were delicious. The lasagna was better than we have tasted in any other restaurant.
The noise level inside was the problem. By the end of our dinner we had to resort into yelling across our table for two. It was busy and there was a large party nearby but the noise definitely distracted from our enjoyment.

There was a mix up with hostess seating us outdoors but no server assigned to us so we waited a long time fr service and had to go in to ask. Food was good but a bit overpriced. Location was not where we expected being classified at Old Town Scottsdale, it was off the beaten path.

Have been to EVO for happy hour a few times and always enjoyed it. Decided to take out of town guest for dinner. 2 of us had the restaurant week menu which was delish. The other 2 ordered of the menu which they also enjoyed very much. John our waiter was attentive with out being overbearing. Just the right balance of letting us enjoy each other company and making sure you needs were being met. It's a great place would definitely recommend it.

First time visit. Sat at the bar with my business partner. This was AZ Restaurant Week. Borchetta was excellent - pate to die for. (not sure I spelled it right.) I ordered salmon which came on a mashed potato mix - delicious. Best was the lemon panna cotta. Wow!!! We will definitely go back.

EVO is one of our favorite restaurants. The meatball appetizer is a must! The squid ink pasta with seafood is always delicious, and the chili shrimp on linguine is excellent but sometimes a little too spicy. The chocolate torte dessert is outstanding! Highly recommend it!

Loved Evo! Superb food! Our server was terrible, he didnt explained the menu when asked. All he would say was its alright. I would see the other servers get to their tables and explain the menu. When i asked about the entree i order he said it ok.

I was hopeful about the bad reviews surrounding service but they were right. One of the entrees was salty and we told our server who said, I’ll tell the chef. No apologies, no manager, no can I bring you another dish, no bill adjustment. The other entree was exceptional but the service left a bad taste in my mouth. We are crossing it off of our Old Town Scottsdale list.

First time at EVO and we will be back. Pleasant, sophisticated environment, great location, AND, not too noisy! Happy hour menu lasted until 7:00 and enjoyed a good glass of Sauvignon Blanc for $5! Salads were a highlight. The Caesar salad was delicious and the beet salad, with candied pistachios, was pronounced the best ever! Spouse and I shared Eggplant Ragu Pasta and Fungi Pizza. Pasta was a little disappointing. Knowing that it was made in-house, we had high expectations, and it was not as flavorful a dish as we hoped. The pizza was outstanding and we will order it again.

Especially helpful to have convenient, available parking.

We enjoyed the food here very much. It is very loud so if that bothers you this is not the place for you. Maybe if you go early it would be better. I just don’t understand why they try and make these restaurants so loud. A little noise dampening on the ceiling would go along way.
