Parma Italian Roots - Scottsdale
With Coastal California style melding with fine Italian cuisine, Parma’s results are elegant, inventive and, at times, downright indulgent. Expect a menu that packs undeniable appeal for those looking for classic Italian standbys as well as those seeking something new.
New restaurant we found, delicious focaccia bread with the best truffle butter! Really enjoyed the arancinis (if you like a little spicy sauce) and the chicken parm was delicious! One of our favorite new spots!
Just OK. Just OK. Just OK. Just OK. Just OK. Just
Took a long no time for waiter t come me to table and they were suppose to give me the rest of my dinner to take home and it was thrown out.
Very nice evening meal! The food was very tasty and well presented, the service was perfect and the prices appropriate.
great restaurant, amazing food. Loved it. You can smell the fresh cooked meals as you walk in the restaurant.
We had a 7:45 PM reservation and arrived on time. Table was not ready but went to outside bar and sat there for ten minutes while bartenders paid us no attention so we moved outside to wait on our table. We were seated about 20 minutes past our reservation outside as we wished. Another fifteen minutes passed until our waiter came to table. However, a larger table seated after us was attended too immediately. With this said, the food was good and like the patio. Not sure if we will give another try.
The food is so fantastic that you forget that you are in a city devoid of culture. Parma is a special place that I hope keeps its sizzle.
The food was fantastic but the restaurant was cramped and loud.
We were the only guest in the restaurant at 5pm with a 4yr old and 1yr old. My wife order chicken parmigiana. The chicken was raw when my wife cut into the chicken. Manager came over and apologized. After 15 minutes later server brought out another dish. Not sure for chicken parm at $27 was worth it. Wife loss appetite after taking her first bite of raw chicken. No compensation or even an offer for a dessert or for the meal. Too many other Italian restaurants in the valley to go back to this one.
Great service, good wine and food. Everyone really enjoyed it.
Great service, nice atmosphere, wonderful food! Highly recommend.
Excellent food, excellent service and fantastic dessert ! We will certainly be back!
Took customers to Parma and they loved it! Food and service were phenomenal.
I can’t believe the word isn’t out about their brunch yet. Bottomless mimosas and avocado Toast. Literally can’t beat it
Sat at the Bar
Bartenders are WORLDLY us CLASS
Great Wine by the glass
Recommend Pizza Pasta and squash blossoms
Was excited to try a new place for the family. Began ordering the focaccia bread and prosciutto bruschetta. Appetizers came and we got the focaccia bread and burrata bruschetta instead of the prosciutto. We chose not to say anything and both were delicious which is why I’m giving two stars. I ordered the butternut squash angolotti, my husband and one son both ordered the pappardelle and my other son the rigatoni. While the flavor of my dish was good, the pasta was cool to Luke warm; the pappardelle was stuck together in clumps and chewy and the rigatoni was so overcooked it was mushy. We would have said something but didn’t see our waiter again until it was too late. Very disappointed.
Love the food, the service and the ambiance.
The Ceasar Salad I shared with my dinner companion was one of the best I’ve experienced in a great while. Crisp Gem lettuce with a house made dressing was exquisite. It was unfortunate that the rest of the meal was lackluster. The spicey sopresatta pizza would have been better if not for the drizzle of honey. I tried very hard to embrace this taste combination but in the end it just seemed contrived. My partner wasn’t impressed with the pasta Bolognese. The presentation was lackluster and the taste was bland. On the positive, our server, Jake, was delightful and couldn’t have been more pleasant. He’s a delightful young man and an asset to the restaurant.
Food was especially good. Short Ribs is my favorite meal there. Server was a little green when coming to serving wine by the bottle.
Food and wine were wonderful! Service was a bit slow, but we did sit outside so it may be because of that. The servers were very nice.
Great food, service was above average. My issue is their hours. It was a Thursday night and we were still enjoying our wine after our meal at 8:45 and the cleaning staff was cleaning around us. Very annoying. Wont come back in the evening based on this . Very odd.
This used to be my go to place for great food and wine; havent been in a while as everything like everything else has gone down; you're pizza used to be amazing, what has happened?? I was truly disappointed! The happy hour wine choices and 1/2 price wine bottles were always top notch, that too has fallen off. I see why its been so long since I ate here, truly a disappointment!!
We liked the remodel from the old cold beer and cheeseburgers. The food was good service could be Better but a good dinner experience regardless.
Great service Great food!
The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday evening. I was glad that I made reservations. Of course, we started with the focaccia bread, which is outstanding. Then, the antipasti salad which is large enough for two. The Butternut Squash ravioli was excellent. 50% off a bottle of wine during happy hour was a great deal as well.
Dec 2. Birthday dinner. Loved the food and the service
Delicious mushroom toast. And I mean DELICIOUS!! Arrived hoping to have squash blossoms; waiter sold us on how great they were then came back and told us they had none to sell. Wonderful presentation of a Caeser salad! Waiter didn’t read the table well. Seemed inexperienced. Restaurant was NOT busy and often isn’t. Afraid they will close before enough people find them. Food very good. Service only ok.
A bit off tonight but still good.
Great food! Great service! Love the atmosphere
Great waiter Hunter. We were disappointed that the were out of several menu choices at 730 on a Friday evening.
They tried to accommodate us as best possible.
Overall a very nice restaurant with a very attentive wait staff!
Service was great. The food came out in less than 5 minutes. Meatballs, pizza, bolognese pasta. Meatballs were good. Pizza crust was over charred but not bad. Bolognese noodles were a big clump and stuck together. The sauce was good however. I would recommend not rushing to get food out and not paying attention to the quality you are serving. No excuse for the noodles... that dish would probably have been really good.
As always, a delicious meal. They do everything the right way. It can get a little hectic since it’s a popular place. We had the wrong appetizers dropped on our table, which happens almost every time. It’s almost like a game now! Not a big deal though. Still a great experience. The bread appetizer is so incredible that even my gluten-free friend had some!
In early November we dined on a quiet patio in this strip mall restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly. Portions are very generous. Family friendly. Reasonably priced. We will return.
Good food, service and value. The short rib pasta is great.
The staff is very accommodating and the food is very good. The grilled octopus app was excellent... tender and flavorful. The bruschetta was flavorful but the toast was too soft.... almost mushy.
The pasta with clam sauce was flavorful and the pasta with pesto and burrata was also very good. Pesto is a strong flavor, and I would’ve liked a bit less as the pasta was almost drowning in it along with the oil from the pesto.
All in all... a nice dining experience and we would go back.
We had a truly scrumptious dinner! The food was amazing. Service could have been a little more attentive, especially because it was a slow night. We will definitely be back - didn’t even know this little gem existed!
Loved the restaurant. The ricotta stuffed squash flower was delicious. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the pesto cappenella was amazing as was the bread.
Delicious, fresh tasting dinner menu items. We chose many small plate items from their great, shareable selections including the arancini, Nonna’s meatballs, wood oven carrots and antipasto chopped salad. All were fantastic, especially their bread! This was plenty for 2 people but I would definitely return to try additional menu items.
Recommended with reservations. Checked on the happy hour menu online and found when we arrived that the bottles of wine that were supposed to be 1/2 off weren't even the same ones and the choices at the restaurant were considerably more expensive. Ordered a signature cocktail for happy hour and what I got was a margarita. (My fault, I should have sent it back.)
The food was very good and the service was good as well.
