The Food was supposed to be medium well and came charred to oblivion
and the Brussell sprouts were burnt as well.

Great place for an anniversary! We ordered the grilled octopus, meatballs, bolognaise, chili shrimp pasta and butter cake! All was fantastic. Great ambiance but not over the top fancy. Could not recommend more!

The Octopus appetizer was very nice. Watch the sauce though unless you like spicy.
We had pasta dishes and both were okay. We were expecting a bit more traditional flavors and just didn’t meet our expectations. Over all was a good experience.

Food came out at room temperature. Service was great at first and fell apart as things picked up. Sat at our table for around 15 minutes after finishing our food and asking for it.

Yes, we had the pleasure to have Serena, a Manager be our waitress. Everything from the wonderful Pinot Noir wine, the appetizer, salad and pasta was fantastic! The coursing was superb. EVO is one of my favorites restaurants of all time.

First trip to Evo and while we were seated promptly I had to flag down a hostess after no one approached us for 10 minutes. When our server did appear she apologized profusely since they were experiencing credit card machine issues. From that point on she more then made up for the delay.
We started with the Arancini. Delicious crunchy and creamy. My son ordered the shrimp fettuccine which he loved. I ordered chicken parm. Omg the chicken was great but the homemade pasta was amazing. Tender and flavorful. I’m still thinking about it! We went on a Sunday and it was half price on their wine bottles which our server recommended. The wine list is small and moderate so not a lot of options but a Great deal! Can’t wait to return!

I asked for a private table away from the kitchen and was very disappointed when we were sat directly in front of the kitchen door where all the waiter traffic is.

Also, while service was very nice, the waiter offered to either buy my wife her choice of a drink or dessert for her birthday. After our meal, he offered a “birthday shot” when we didn’t order dessert which we assumed was the drink “on the house” so she ordered a limoncello. Then, when I went to pay the bill, the shot was added to the bill and we ended up paying for the free drink we didn’t want.

All in all, the restaurant has nice ambiance but execution of the details was not great. The sauce on the Bolognese pasta wasn’t authentically made (it was really marinara with some ground meat) and the arancini were mostly cheese balls and didn’t follow classic recipe.

I had made a reservation for 5:30pm and I had three different people tell me all throughout my stay there how I need to be done eating by 7pm. Our dinner was fairly quick and we were out on time but no need to say five times how you only have time till 7 so order quick :( so not appropriate and a very big turn off!!!! I will not be returning and I highly recommend for anyone who is going there to enjoy ambiance that it’s not worth it when they constantly come and interrupt how you have time restriction. It’s sad they could have gotten more drinks and dessert out of us but we left :(

One of the best dining experiences we have had! We had been before I knew that all menu items were amazing. So we started out sharing some appetizers of our choice, the Caprese and Arancini balls were top notch. After that we decided to let our waiter choose the remainder of the meal. We requested chefs choice for our entrées and for dessert. Evo and our FABULOUS waiter did not disappoint. The fennel sausage pasta and the butter cake dessert were some of the best we’ve ever had. We also had some tequila tastings and the bartenders recommendations were on par with our taste for fine sipping tequila! Overall, highly recommend Evo and we will be back as soon as we return to Scottsdale!!

Outside patio left something to be desired as it backed to their parking lot and the main road. There was also a smell… sort of like we were sitting close to a dumpster? But I didn’t see one. Arizona weather was beautiful though, so that’s why we opted for outdoors. Next time, I would likely choose indoor instead as the vibe in there was excellent. Service was great; our server attentive, friendly, and helpful/offered suggestions. Two out of the 3 of us loved our meal. The one was okay, but not favored. Dessert was great (butter cake - worth the wait!). All-in-all, would be back.

Came to town from Los Angeles to celebrate a graduation at GCU. Found this restaurant through open table and made reservations for the family. Service from the entire team was outstanding. All the food we had was delicious including two types of pizzas, 4 types of pastas, salad, wines, and two types of deserts. The portion sizes were great and the restaurant had great vibes. My favorite pizza was the margarita, my favorite pasta was the Bolognese, and favorite desert was the walnut banana bread which was scrumptious. My sister who was the graduate really enjoyed her experience.

While on vacation celebrating our anniversary on our last night we really enjoyed our experience here at EVO. The staff are very friendly & we were early for our reservation and sat at the bar for only a little while. We sat outside & it was a beautiful night. The salmon was very good but a little salty with the blackened seasoning. It came with gnocchi which were very tasty. The sausage fennel with rigatoni was excellent as well as the meatball appetizer. Drinks are moderately priced with a nice list of options. As a gift we had a complimentary dessert, a very nice touch.
