    As expected, the food was amazing and our server James P really rounded out the entire experience. We were sat in a comfy booth in the lounge, the decor was sophisticated and everyone that worked there was welcoming & friendly. HIGHLY recommend the Versace on the Floor cocktail - very inventive and tasty! While we loved everything we ordered, the food stand outs were the Tagliatelle Wagyu Bolognese & Salted Caramel Budino. We were only visiting for the weekend but plan to return if/when we’re in Scottsdale again!

    Beautiful restaurant with great good and great service. Our party of six enjoyed a variety of appetizers, salads and entrees and all of them were excellent. The beef cheeks appetizer and burratta salad were great. The duck breast and black cod are both highly recommended and the Neiman Farm New York Strip melted in your mouth and was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The service was great and we plan on coming back often!

    We had an excellent meal at the Americano. The service was excellent. Our waiter (August) was friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. Only complaint is that the prices are on the high side, so this is more of a special occasion type restaurant... hard to go there on a regular basis. Cocktails were extra expensive. It was a nice place to go for our Wedding Anniversary. We definitely would recommend.

    The appetizers (Caviar Fries as well as the Octopus) were fantastic!!!! I've never had Caviar before so I was skeptical but, Oh yeah, I will order that again. I had the Tagliatelle with Waygu Bolognese and my wife had the Duck Entree.. Both were simply amazing. We paired it with a Super Tuscan Red which was worth every penny. Dessert.... Lets just say... If you want a traditional dessert, go with the gelato. The menu items for dessert are not what most would call a desert. They were more of a savory, item that would be better as a starter... They were weird and we could not finish them. The service was absolutely spot on! Friendly, accommodating and enjoyable. We will return because we want to try the other menu items. We will just have dessert somewhere else.

    We arrived early to take advantage of happy hour. We had a few specialty drinks and the tenderloin skewers with chimichurri We enjoyed them but the real action was dinner. I enjoyed the polenta with mushrooms and the Muscovy Duck. The duck was spectacular, perfectly cooked and seasoned. My only suggestion would be a bit more foie gras as the accompaniment but when I return I will order more It brought me back to Culinary school where they rendered the fat and then perfectly cooked it. My wife had the beet salad with the Bolognese. She thoroughly enjoyed it and would order it again. We finished with cappuccino and the chocolate trio. Interesting but a little confused by the dish. The service was excellent and we will for sure be back.

    Food was good, but fairly standard for other similarly priced Italian restaurants. The waitstaff were friendly but constantly visited the table to move glasses, plates, and silverware to the "proper" location, which was highly disruptive when it occurred every few minutes.

    The food was amazing. Our server was poor. When you pay 5 star prices for food, you expect 5 star service. Our server didn't ask everyone at the table for drink orders, we had to ask about specials, when ordering we found out some items weren't available, etc. Specials and things that aren't available should be presented up front. We had to ask for dessert menus, not all the dessert came out at once, so that was awkward as 3 people ate dessert while one waited so it didn't melt, etc. and dessert took 30 mins to come out. If I wasn't at a high end restaurant none of this would be an issue, but this is a high end, fine dining establishment started by a high caliber chef.

    Dinner at The Americano is an event. First the restaurant is beautiful inside. All the seating is comfy. The service is impeccable. The food is outrageously good. I am partial to the pasta dishes. Nice wine list and the desserts are unbelievably creative and delicious. It’s definitely one of our fav spots.

    I have had two great experiences for dinner. But on the 19th of November it was not even close to being up to the standards that the Americano has. Our waiter was horrible and my favorite dish the Pasta Pomo arrived luke warm. It was very sticky had was lacking the flavors that it usually had. I was so disappointed because it is my favorite Italian in Scottsdale. I am not sure what the problem was but I am not sure we would go back. And that makes me sad. But on a positive note my husband had the black cod and he said it was amazing. I hope it was just a bad night but until then I will wait to go back.

    Americano was outstanding in every way. Innovative and exceptional dishes. Scott Conant’s signature Pasta Pomodoro is a must eat. The presentation was innovative and inventive. Outstanding service from the car valets to the general manager stopping by our table twice made us feel very special. Our server provided a truly custom experience for us in every way. She was incredible. Because we were celebrating a birthday and anniversary they brought us two custom deserts on the house! We do not drink alcohol and the bartender made two unbelievable custom mocktails that you’d swear had alcohol in them! Tasty. The restaurant is beautiful, as well. We sat in an intimate booth on the terrace but even though the night was cold there were plenty of heating lights and lamps so it was very comfy and cozy. We’ve eating at Chef Conant’s restaurants elsewhere and this one is a gem. We cannot wait to go back. Worth every single penny on this fabulous meal!

    I can’t put into words what an amazing dining experience I had at this restaurant. I had been dying to try out The Americano since I heard about it opening. I’ve been to Scott Conant’s other Phoenix area restaurant, Mora Italian, so I already knew the food was going to be top-notch. The ambience of the restaurant is simply breathtaking, the service was superb (Andre was our server and he took great care of us), and all of the food was prepared beautifully and tasted delicious. They had a wonderful variety of dishes as well. This dinner was with four of my girlfriends to celebrate my 50th birthday. Scott Conant himself even came out to meet us and was gracious enough to take pictures with us as well. That was an added bonus on an already incredible evening. I highly recommend The Americano.

The food is spectacular - a place a true foodie will enjoy. Beverages to accompany are plentiful, unique and a wine list to perfectly accommodate your meal. We have enjoyed this restaurant for a few years and always look forward to dining at The Americano.

    We have been several times with outstanding service. This experience was horrible. The place was half full but it took 2 1/2 hours for three orders of pasta. It took nearly an hour to get our salad. If we had not had such good experiences in the past we would not return

I was extremely disappointed that they did not recognize my husband’s birthday even though I clearly specified on the reservation that his birthday was our occasion to celebrate there, and I even called to make sure the staff made a note of it.

    Believe the high reviews, I can confirm them. We had a lovely evening enjoying the company of the wonderful wait staff. They brought delicious food and beverages that paired perfectly together in a timely manner. We were seated in a gorgeous and modern yet cozy restaurant and treated like VIP’s the entire time. We are persons, and not at all important…but you’d wouldn’t know it by all the attention we received on a Friday night. The wedge, the meatball, the duck, and the lobster pasta were perfect. I am fussy and I wouldn’t change a thing. Adam offered an excellent wine pairing and McKenna took the best care of us. We will be back as soon as we can!
