In our one-week vacation, we went twice for dinner and another time for happy hour. Love everything about this place.

We had a great experience on our night out at Pubblico. The appetizers, salads, and entrees were prepared perfectly and served at a proper pace. It was a Wednesday night so there was also a special deal on any bottle of wine and it paired extremely well with our meal. Staff was attentive to all of our needs and the owner introduced himself to us and made sure everything was to our liking. Thank you Danny, we will be back!

Fish, pasta, desert and wine. All were excellent as was the service. Price was right. Place was a little loud however. We'd recommend for sure!

Had a pleasant experience at Pubblico in central Phoenix, so decided to give the scottsdale location a try. Absolutely no atmosphere and very mediocre food. Will not be going back

We were attending a conference at a nearby hotel/resort and wanted something different that the property had to offer. Chose this place! Wow. Our server Angel made recommendations and happy hour cocktails. I had the linguine with clams, and my wife had shrimp scampi. We enjoyed the meal and service immensely "el fresco" and here is where it gets interesting. We couldn't contact an Uber or Lyft back to our hotel for nearly 45 minutes (it's Scottsdale). Angel authorized one of the hostesses to take us back to the hotel. Fortunately, I kept trying Uber and finally got one. The mere offer to help two out-of-town people says a lot about the customer and human side of a business. Next time in the area, it will be a definite date for us. Thank you all at Pubblico Italian Eatery!

Always exceptional. Even during the pandemic and slower turnover, the food and service were excellent. We had cioppino (amazing.. and mega leftovers), sea bass, lobster ravioli, salads, calamari, shrimp... all delicious. In previous visits, we’ve also ordered the chicken dishes (always tender) and pizza. Our server last night, Angel, was great. Recommended perfect wine, was funny, and accommodating. The owner, Danny, is very attentive and maintains high standards. Highly recommend.

The food was very good. It started out well, but the waiter got very busy and we ended up sitting a long time out on the patio with dirty dishes stacked up and waiting for water, which we had asked for multiple times. Once the owner was made aware, he took care of it, so we will definitely be back.

What a nice surprise! We chose this restaurant as it was a new restaurant to Restaurant Week. And the menu looked great. Boy were we surprised by how good. Everyone picked something different...appetizers were tomato bruschetta, spicy salami and fig bruschetta, meatballs, etc. We are still arguing over whose was best. The entrees were wonderful. I had the chicken parmesan. The guys had the lobster ravioli...everyone agreed that they were some of the best we had had. Pasta was house made.....and boy can you taste the different. We will definitely be back!!

We had so much fun at Pubblico’s wonderful happy hour! The food was delish (and so affordable), the wine and cocktails were great ...but the superstar service was what really made it special! We all had a blast and have been telling our friends to go and give it a try. Having opened just before covid hit they hadn’t quite gotten a stronghold on their clientele, nows the time!

First time at Pubblico and overall everything was great. Mussels appetizer was great. My wife had the Lobster Ravioli that was very good.. the pasta was fresh and sauce had an excellent flavor. I had the Cioppino which comes with a 1lb lobster tail plus shrimp, scallops, & calamari. Jose was friendly and provided great service.

The staff was amazing, especially Alyssa who was a bit like a friend and less like a bartender. The food was good but odd that it was better after I re-heated the dish when I got home. I got the lobster ravioli, and it was a bit lukewarm when I started eating it at the restaurant. Also, the ravioli was giant but really, very chewy. I would more than likely go back to Publicco for the service, wine, and style alone but I might try another dish.

I love Pubblico! This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant and love sitting on the patio. Great ambience. I make sure to bring all of my friends and out of town visitors here. The owner Danny makes an effort to stop by every customer’s table and to know your name. Angel is the best server and his personalized service makes you feel like you’re his only customer. This is a must place for Happy Hour and dinner in Scottsdale!

The food was mediocre. We had 3 different dishes. Lobster raviolis which were not hot, a steak, which was ordered rare and served well done and chicken parmigiana that was completely over cooked. Hate to say it, but Olive Garden serves better food. No bread offered with the meal, no draft beers and no ambiance.
