The food was good. Some things were great. But the service was rough. It didn’t appear to be a short-staffed issue, it seemed to be more of a training issue. Wrong orders, missed drink orders, continuously having to remind the waitress of things. Just a little tightening up, or possibly this waitress isn’t cut out to serve a larger party.

Our first time and we're already talking about our next visit. Outstanding food and service. Highly recommend the foccia. Ever since Davanti left the valley I have been searching for one that was similar. Finally found it. We drizzled it with honey. So good!! Amazing! I had the Cod for my entree. Perfectly cooked. Loved the sunchokes. Hubby had the steak. Beautiful 2 inch strip steak topped with chimichurri. Super tasty but they didn't cook it correctly. Twice. But still super tasty. For sides we had the carrots and brussels. I could go back just for those! Luckily we had an awesome server, Sara, to walk us through. Ended our perfect meal with some limoncello. Can't wait till next time!

Great food and service. We were made to feel special as we were celebrating a birthday. Servers were attentive and did a fine job of explaining the menu. The bar was slow due to 1 bartender for entire restaurant however cocktails were very good

Mora has the best combination of things - cool bar for a great pre dinner cocktail, awesome friendly service, and the pasta is UNREAL especially the pomodoro - as good as any I’ve had in Italy. I look forward to coming here whenever I’m in PHX

First visit. We opted for the all-table menu so our party of 3 could try as much as possible, and it is the way to go on a first visit: 3 appetizers, 3 pastas, a grilled branzino main, and desert, everything to share. Would focus on pasta on return trip. Would have preferred something Italian (tiramisu) rather than the ice cream, but had overall a terrific meal. Good advice on food and a nice bottle of wine. Not cheap but a pretty good value. Highly recommended!

Been to Scott Conant’s restaurants both here and in NY and have never been disappointed, loved the ambiance of the restaurant, service was spot on, knowing it was our wedding anniversary they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne along with dessert. The servers recommendation for dishes was spot on , will be soon to try other dishes on the menu

Pre-dinner drinks were a little heavy-handed. Octopus appetizer was not very flavorful and was chewy - we had light-years better at Hearth '61. Pasta was good, but pricey and not better than other area restaurants to be deserving of the price. Brussell sprouts could have used a few more minutes cook time, so they weren't hard in the inner half. Just left us wondering why the rating was high. We weren't impressed enough to return again. Good, when we expected great. Sorry - we really wanted to love it.

Husband and daughter liked their dishes - pomodoro and bolognese, I got the black campanelle- it was cooked nice and tasted good, but only lukewarm. A $29 dish of pasta and seafood should be hot when served, IMO. Nice place, but you can probably get just as good Italian for $15ish a plate at another restaurant.

If you're looking for outstanding food combined with exceptional service (Ashley), try Mora on 7th Street. The menu is first rate, with recipes by Chef Scott Conat (Food Channel) and locale Scottsdale resident. The food is perfection. We had dinner there last night prior to a concert. Ashley, was our server, and although she was "In Training" it was evident she had been around the restaurant service business for sometime. She elevated our experience with just the right balance of ensuring all our needs were attended to without being overburdening. Thanks Scott and Staff of Mora on 7th for the great start to a special evening!! 5Stars

Terrific atmosphere. We had early reservations and were the the only diners. But unfortunately, we were seated at a tiny table with a wood chair, hard as a rock. As other parties of two were seated, they received larger tables with the comfortable seating. Very strange.

We have enjoyed Mora our first two visits. So we were excited to take some out-of-town guests to experience the most incredible polenta and fettucine in the world. Our server started off attentive. I took he/she to one side and asked that everything go on my bill. Smiled and nodded. Our plates of starters arrived. The food is never HOT at Mora, but this time it was hardly lukewarm. The polenta creamosa would probably be fabulous if it was a popsicle, it's that good. It was the first time we had the Focaccia de Recco. Bland enough our guest requested red pepper flakes. Hint: We didn't order it this time, but the Baby Lettuces and Goat Cheese Salad--THAT has flavor. Our next courses arrived. Still barely warm. Again, the Fettucine---how do they make it the BEST Fettucine you've ever had, even cold? The Porchetta---I really enjoyed the orange and fennel flavors, though they could have been more prominent, but the dish was so salty, my partner and I literally down an entire bottle of water in one gulp. We didn't finish the dish. I did ask for the remains to be boxed, because it was more than half the dish. Our guests had the Tagliatelle, and she complained it was "way too fishy". But they loved the Branzino--so good! By this time the attention from our server was practically nil, but in her defense, it was super busy at this point. The server brought separate bills, which made me unhappy. There had to be laughing wrangling to force them to let us pay for the entire table, and it's just distasteful that our guests saw the total. And she never brought me my salty Porchetta doggy bag.

And yes, FOH was attentive---in fact, he stopped to inquire how are food was at every course--even before we had taken a bite! And no, we didn't complain or send back food because we had guests and it didn't seem appropriate.

The young man in charge of valet parking is a ROCK STAR! They have a true gem in him.

We probably won't return for a while.
