Food and service were excellent! Probably the very best Ceaser salad I have ever eaten. Only downsides are the very uncomfortable high chairs for the counter-height tables, the noise, the very narrow, crowded spaces between tables and bar, and the lighting, which is not sufficient to be able to read the menu. Lots of folks having to use their phones as flashlights. We will give it another try, maybe for lunch, or an afternoon when it is no so crowded.

Service was amazing! Wasn’t too fond of the food.. clam linguini had sooooo many clam shells in the pasta. Salads were good, tiramisu was meh… not for me again.

Music was too loud and not the right vibe for the setting (low lighting, candles). Food was outstanding but overpriced in my opinion. Service was also not if the same caliber as the food. Felt like a mush mash of different things at once.

Everything about our experience was exceptional. Richard was up to the task of answering all of our questions in our quest to have an amazing food & cocktail experience. I can’t thank him enough! The food was outstanding & our cocktails were spot on! Definitely will be back!

Very good experience will come back. Enjoyed the variety of drinks and food options. Not too much was available for vegetarians in terms of ready made dishes, however the ambiance made up for it. Very warm and quaint, very friendly staff

New Year’s Eve diner with family. We had reservations and we still were told to wait 15 min so we ended up sitting on the patio. The food quality fell short from what we’re use to, our waitress was nice but the attention suffered. Overall it was ok but the overall experience fell short for us.

We had an amazing time here! Zero complaints whatsoever. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere was modern and chill upbeat. Crowd was the ultra chic uptown crowd everyone aspires to be. The food was incredible and came out perfect. Don’t skip getting the mozzarella - I promise you won’t regret it! Thank you for helping us see off 2021 and get ready for 2022!!! Will be back and tell everyone we know about it.

Food was spectacular. Waited over 20 minutes for a server to come to our table and received no apology for the wait. Drinks were very slow. Food was fast. Overall still a good experience.

We enjoyed our experience here — food was tasty — my seafood dish was really good and the arugula salad was excellent. Service was in the weeds when we got there, but we were finally taken care of and our wait was acknowledged. Nice heated patio. Above-average wine-by-the-glass list. Warning: the name of the restaurant is not illuminated, so it’s hard to see at night. Enter where you see Wildflower.

First time @ Pubblico. We had a reservation so no problem getting a table and plenty of parking. Neat little area … we arrived in time for Happy Hour … had the calamari as our appetizer. Nice start to the meal.
The service was excellent and food was quite good … my fish was a little over done… but good flavors and my husband enjoyed the his seafood fettuccine.
There were other dishes in the menu that we both want to try, so we’ll be back and hope to try something different for our next visit.

But this was our first time visiting this restaurant. I brought my daughters and my mom for dinner before The Nutcracker ballet. The food was absolutely amazing! Portions were big enough for everybody to share and leave happy. I'm excited to go back and try other things from the menu

Service was very good but food is lacking flavor and pricing is over the top for a semi-casual Italian/Pizza restaurant.

Fun, contemporary, casual. Food was good, not a big variety. Main courses were very good, bruschetta was pretty sparse on toppings. Very flexible, we were running late and it was easy to change our reservation by 15 minutes. Will go again if we are in the area.

This is my second time to Pubblico. The food is wonderful. My date and I really appreciated our waitress, Sydney, who was very knowledgeable.
She made great wine recommendations, as well as entrees.
We will be going back to visit because of Sydney and the food.

We stopped in on our way to a Suns game. We had a reservation. Got seated right way in between a big party and a party of 2 women. I feel like we may have been forgotten if it wasn't for the watchful hostess. We ordered a cocktail. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli for dinner. Portion size - perfect . Presentation- nice. Taste - Delicious. My husband had shrimp scampi which I think was an appetizer but he had as dinner. He said his food was tasty as well. It was kind of noisy but not too noisy. Overall, good experience. I would return.

The food was great, the waiter was honestly awful, we asked for our food to come out in courses instead got all of the food at once. When we asked them to correct it they stood by with all their staff and talked about our table. We wouldn't recommend this place because of the staff.

Chicken fettuccini was cold at the bottom and the sauce watery. The flourless chocolate cake is misrepresented as it is a molten lava cake shaped like a cupcake.

Our first time dining here and was a little tricky to spot, since the entrance is at the back of building and signage is small. We had a table on the very pleasant patio. The margherita pizza was an excellent starter to share with my husband and a good value at the $10 happy hour pricing. The pasta dishes were also very tasty, although I could have used some crusty bread to soak up the broth in the linguini with clams. Wine list has a good selection of wines by the glass, as well as a pricey reserve list of bottles. Servers were very pleasant and helpful.

Always enjoy Publicco but the timing of the service was off. We had only had our salads for a few minutes when the entrees came to the table. By the time we were finished with our salads the entrees were cold.

This was our second visit to Pubblico. Having had a fantastic experience the first time, this visit topped even that "wow" evening. Everything I've had has been absolutely delicious.The mussels appetizer was fresh and flavorful, its sauce aromatic and complex. I ordered cioppino as my main course and it was above and beyond. No mere stew with a few random bits of seafood floating in a sea of stock, the ingredients towered above the broth and delectable homemade fettuccine, every bite a revelation. Try as I might I could only eat half of my portion, and am enjoying the remainder for dinner tonight. Did I mention that Wednesdays are Wine Night at Pubblico? every wine on the menu is $20 a bottle. The ambience is comfortable, with lighting and music at comfortable levels, and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. For dessert, have the bread pudding! Best I've had anywhere. My gf and I will be making Pubblico our regular Wednesday hang for sure.
