We have been here several times and have always had Angel as our server. He does a great job and we will always ask for him in the future. Everything was excellent but the $20 bottle of wine on Wednesday is such a great deal. Thank you!

I was in town to visit friends and I was complaining about all of the really bad meals and experiences I was having over the 2 days that I had been in town. I’m places like DC Steakhouse, The Distillery, the Keg steakhouse. These are places that do a steady business yet I had a substandard experience at each of the previous mentioned establishments.

Well thank goodness for Pubblico. This was by far the best food and dining experience I had in a long time. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have been spoiled by world class dining experiences. So for this place to be among the best that I’ve had is saying something. I ordered the lobster ravioli. One of the best meals I’ve tasted in a long time.

The server was on point and towards the end of my meal, a manager came by just to make sure everything was up to par with what we wanted.

For a franchise restaurant I was blown away. I’ve already recommended this place to numerous people while chatting in the airport and on my flight back to San Francisco.

Pubblico, thanks for turning my horrible dining experiences during my most recent visit to Phoenix into a great experience at your place. I will definitely be back.

So loud and the tables were so close to one another. The waiter made the specials sound gross. Chopped salmon in different kinds of pasta. Odd place. We left without ordering.

The food was good and the service was attentive and engaging. We did not care for the location of our table which was the along East wall where we could hear every one else's conversation. The proximity made me an unwilling eaves dropper.

Next time I will ask for a booth.

Second visit. Was very good the first time-this visit was just ok. Really couldn’t understand our server due to mask but he wasn’t very enthusiastic about his job 🤔
Food was out fast and quality was again, just ok.

It was our first time here and we will back. The service was perfect. And the food - delicious! We were able to be seated in the patio and it was a great atmosphere. I had the Cioppino and my husband had the Sea Bass, our daughters had chicken Parmesan. All were delicious. And the creme brûlée for dessert was a great way to end a delicious dinner.

We were first timers on Mothers Day. Pubblico was busy, noisy, and ultimately fantastic! The food (especially the Salmon) was excellent, our waiter was one of the best, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

This place is a hidden gem! I say that because their sign is in yellow on a beige building, kind of hard to see from the parking lot. They are a couple doors down from Ruth's Chris.
Anyway, their food is amazing! So delicious, great variety, beautiful restaurant, excellent service. We will be going back!! Highly recommend!

Very nice dinner. Hostess was super helpful. I had booked on open table, knowing that the patio was full but noting that we'd like outside if possible. We arrived a little early, and she was able to seat us outside in 5 minutes! Straight ahead italian food ... both my wife and had Chicken Parm with a side of pasta (her's gluten free). Very tasty, simple food cooked perfectly. Would go back again!

Innovative cocktail program. Wines by glass program could use a couple more mass market appeal varietals. Food quality, flavor and presentation generally good while value is enhanced by happy hour appetizer program available to early diners. Service was good but a little stretched. Benchmark standard is to never have a drink go empty. All in enjoyed the experience and will be back.

This was our first time here and I can say I had the best time. My food was so delicious. I’m a huge calamari person and it was the best calamari I’ve had in awhile. The drinks and entrees were also very good, and we had the most accommodating server!

I was a nice place and had a nice wine list. All the food was good. Only miss for me was the short rib rav came with a filet. That was overkill. No one wants meat ravioli with more meat. Also the ravioli needed some cheese inside. Great to see some fun interesting Italian white wines which you don't see often and the were outstanding. Service was great.

Food is always stellar here and we always have more than one entree we want to order! Love working my way through the menu! All of their wines are perfect for the food. Only negative is the parking lot view from their patio though they do a great job to make the patio festive.
