Luis our server was a professional. Outstanding service and food. Highly recommend to all those who enjoy Italian in an intimate setting hosted by those who enjoy their profession and for whom they work for.

This can be hit or miss. Saturday night and staff rushed and while the restaurant was not full, just busy, felt rushed to eat and leave. How does an Italian restaurant not have Italian bread? Dinner rolls from Walmart or Costco don’t cut it. Their automatic tip addition for just two people when using their birthday/anniversary certificate is totally worthless with all their conditions for use.

The food was so delicious and the server was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. He had answers to questions we had about different items and the food was just top-notch. Only complaint was they were seemingly understaffed for the no. of people/reservations they had on a Thurs. evening and everything took a bit too long to come out.

What a pleasant surprise. I travel for business and eat at restaurants across the country, and I’m a total Italian restaurant “foodie” and couldnt of been more pleased with La Torretta. Its hard to find the total restaurant package of a place where from top to bottom. Everyone on staff cares about your experience and your meal. From the owner, the host, the bartender, and our awesome waiter Chaz, they nailed it. The prices were spot on, the food choices were plentiful, the cocktails and wine Selection ample, we ordered the specials and they were amazing. Totally recommend La Torretta. New go to spot while in Scottsdale.

My husband and I ate dinner here & the waiter we had was outstanding, not only did he take wonderful care of us & was very friendly & we enjoyed visiting with him, excellent at his job. The food was delicious, the homemade rolls & dipping oil was wonderful. I enjoyed the chicken dish I had it was very tasty. My husband had seafood linguini which he also said was good. We will look forward to eating here again next time we come in town. Thanks for a great meal

Our first of many visits, I’m sure! We love discovering spots we’ve not been to and La Torretta was a delightful find - we’re somewhat new to the area but we can understand why La Torretta has been around as long as it has. Our server Darius added to the great dining experience - he has a fun personality and was also very helpful & knowledgeable re the variety of menu items. We look forward to dining there more often.

A coming from a heavily Italian area, the first test I give a place is meatballs. These were tender, spicy and great texture. Wife had oso bucco. Outstanding. My halibut was wonderful. Wait staff was great. A real go to again place.

Except for a reasonable ambiance the overall restaurant value is poor. The food was tasteless, small portion sizes for the price charged. The complimentary bread was very ordinary flavorless white bread. Nothing stands out in the restaurant
The food is pricey, lacks flavor and doesn't taste good and disappointing. The service however is good.
Thanks

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Torretta, again! This is our favorite restaurant and Darius and staff truly make every outing a delightful one. Our guests (from Chicago) said that they loved it, too and wish there was a sister place there.
We usually go with some neighbors and look forward to doing so in the near future.
Always a treat.
