This is our “go to” neighborhood gem — love the food, the service, the ambiance .... always consistently great.
It was just absolutely perfect! Darius was knowledgeable, attentive and overall excellent
Really liked our waiter Darius. He knows his menu and wines and he knows how to wait on people. He was excellent. The food was delicious too. The escargot made our night. The Ceasar's salad delightful. The pasta was tasty and perfect. Wine was good too. We will go back for sure.
We enjoyed our second meal there and will be back. Darius was great!
Our first time here but it won't be our last. Service friendly and attentive, enthusiastic. Food was excellent, great salad and the butternut ravioli was amazing. Can't wait to go back and try some other dishes.
Love this place. LocalDines makes the price nice. My daughter thinks it’s fancy!
Wonderful dinner as usual. Martini nice and cold. Food nice and hot
Our waiter was surely seemed overwhelmed but we could tell he was a seasoned waiter. Maybe this was his way but not very comfortable.
Food was very good! Love the meatballs and the veal picatta was fabulous. Disappointed in that I made reservations 2 weeks in advance. We were going there before a concert and the 4 of us were seated by the door by the bar in front of a window. You look out on cars, parking lot, ...I should have asked to be moved. I did not think the service was that great. We love to cook, so when we go out, we are fairly picky about service.
Large portions and good service as usual. The meals were a bit salty especially the pancette cream sauce on pena pasta. Probably would not order that again. Need to have a lighter menu.
We came out for a date night and made reservations. The restaurant was a little over half full and we arrived early. We were seated immediately. The server was great. I'm guessing there were no daily specials as he didn't mention any. Their bread is SO delicious, as is the oil combo to dip it in. We ordered a filet and a plate of crab ravioli. The portions were big, the veggies on the side were cooked well (not raw and not soggy). We had the tiramisu for dessert and it was good, different from other tiramisus we've had before.
The location is good with plenty of parking, the drinks were good the food was fair but was served too much on the luke warm side when a meal should be warmer than it was swerved.
Our waiter was very attentive the noise level was good and overall it was a pleasant evening.
We had 5:30 reservations and were seated promptly. We ordered and waited a long time for food. Stuffed mushrooms had a salty brown sauce on top. Main courses were good, but rushed because we had to leave for another event. When our bread basket was empty, and we asked for more, waiter told us they threw away 78 rolls the night before, and he wanted to know exactly how many rolls our party of 4 wanted. Asked for 2. Brought 1. Ridiculous.
Food is overall Delicious...Definatly one of our favorite places for date night or special occasion
Had very nice lunch. Hope lunch service continues. Best value
When you step in the door, you feel like you have stepped into Italy. The beautiful mural on the wall and the exceptional food aroma lets you know you are home.
We experienced excellent customer service, and the food was beyond measure. I had the lasagna, and it was just like my grandmother used to make. The food was hot and delicious.
My pal had the Ceasar salad and commented more than once the chicken wasn't dry and the salad was fresh and crunchy.
You can feel the love and time it took to prepare the sauce and these meals. I can't say enough good things about it.
Why go to that chain Italian restaurant across the street when you can eat at this gem that is locally owned and enjoy a fantastic authentic meal just like your grandmother made in her kitchen.
Once again, excellent food and outstanding service!
We had an excellent experience at La Toretta. Chaz was our server and he was amazing. The food was authentic, homemade and delicious. We loved the whole feel of the restaurant. As we live in the neighborhood , we will definetly be back. One of our new favorites!!!
Worst attempt at Italian food ever. One would be better off getting a jar of Ragu and some frozen entrees at Safeway than paying to eat here.
Another Delicious Meal at La Torretta. Darius was our server and once again he did not disappoint in giving us his full attention and making us smile with his humor. We started off with calamari fried it was so tender and fried to perfection. We then had a garden salad that was
fresh and delicious. My Brother had the cioppino and he didn't come up for air. My other Brother had the Grouper and it was made with artichokes in a white wine sauce accompanied by vegetables and he had a side of angel hair pasta with olive oil. He ate everything on his plate.
I had the eggplant and pasta and vegetables it was a generous portion and so good. We were so full we couldn't order dessert. The entire restaurant filled up by 7:30 pm so I was so happy to see that LaTorretta was doing so well. It deserves too because it is clearly one of the better Italian restaurants in Scottsdale.
The chicken Genovese was spectacularly good. We had leftovers the next day and great the second time as well. Caesar salad wonderful, sauteed calamare wonderful and the wine list filled with many Italian choices. A great evening.
Very pleased with the service and quality of the food. Our desserts were delicious, too. The owner checked on us twice during our meal. I would return without hesitation.
It was Valentines Day ..... food was great. Service was slow.
like a time warp, surprised at the glowing reviews, there are a lot better choices for italian food at better prices in scottsdale
If you like authentic Italian food, you've got to get yourself to La Torretta. What a gem! Everything about this restaurant was excellent; the food, service and ambiance. You want one more reason? Your experience won't break the bank. I know what you're thinking, "How can a restaurant in North Scottsdale be such a great value?" I'll be honest, I felt the same way. I had reservations (no pun intended) if I would leave with "Buyer's Remorse". I can tell you, there wasn't even a hint of it. No regrets, just full and completely satisfied. Make plans to visit La Torretta soon!
Great food and better wine. We will be back.
Always a Favorite stop when in the Scottsdale area. Great service by our waiter Chaz and great tasty plentiful Italian cuisine at a fair price.
Excellent last minute choice for a dinner of 4 adults. Our waiter Chaz was efficient, friendly and well versed on the menu. My Veal parm was abundant, tender and delicious. The table shared appetizers clams casino and calamari, both were excellent. We had hoped to sit outside, but the area was not ready so we were seated inside. Great authentic, homemade Itialian!
As usual everything was delicious. They make the best calamari I have had here. I would event say better than home which is NYC. Portions are more than adequate and delicious. The tiramisu is outstanding
Very nice atmosphere. Good music that's not too loud, so you can hear your companion. Great place and will be back in a heartbeat.
When my husband and I travel to Scottsdale, we always try to go to La Torretta Ristorante for a great experience. This time was no exception. Louie, our waiter was wonderful and the food was fantastic!! We will definitely be back again!
Wonderful food and service was spot on!
Been here before. Food has always been good. Our server was a little bit "Over-Friendly" but the birthday girl liked it.
Hostess dipped behind room divider for several minutes to finish her phone call upon arrival. Waiter confusion to start; ordered two glasses of Chianti and waiter decided to bring us one and a Sangiovese; asked twice for our salad, never got it; food was bland. Restaurant looks and feels tired. Overall - an odd experience.
Great atmosphere and service is impeccable and food is absolutely delicious. I have never had a bad meal there.
Always a great experience and the staff is always very friendly and helpful.
The food was good and the server attentive. the problem was this was my wife's special birthday and I noted it on the open table but nothing was done. That's OK except the table NEXT TO US got a desert with a candle and the waiter wished her a Happy BDay- apparently it was her BD as well. When leaving, my wife wished her a Happy BDAY!
I didn't say anything as it was awkward.....
They were extremely busy and seemed to be likely shorthanded by one or two wait staff. That said, and despite the fact this resulted in service that could've been a tad more attentive, I'd say they did an outstanding job. They really hustled and the food was great.
