Steakhouse
Helmed by Chef Scott Conant, The Americano is an Italian-inspired steakhouse that is modern in approach and Italian in spirit. With an elevated, yet approachable menu it serves every taste, from fine steaks, such as prime and American Wagyu beef, to freshly made pasta, organic salads, Italian antipasti and Mediterranean seafoods including Italian crudi. The Americano blends a European style of highly personalized, tableside service with contemporary Italian-inspired dining to create an unmistakable, convivial experience within the heart of North Scottsdale. Conant’s culinary vision shares the spotlight with an inventive cocktail program that is playful and intricately devised. The Americano also features a thoughtfully curated selection of 200 distinct wines from iconic, established and emerging Italian and American labels, including Conant’s private label, SC Wines. Hip and humble, the restaurant offers a sophisticated, warm atmosphere adorned with striking custom art and sculptures.

my wife and I ate here a few nights ago for her birthday. I forgot the name of our server, but she was tall and fun and very professional. Great vibes and made our experience that much more enjoyable. The drinks had just the right amount of alcohol, which I appreciate very much because I hate going to a nice place and their drinks taste like juice, but are hella expensive... The food was delicious and everything was worth the price!!

The Americano is a lovely restaurant with wonderful ambiance for a special occasion. The staff is attentive and efficient. The food is good, but in my opinion should be better for the price. For example the bream is a nice piece of fish and perfectly prepared, but the flavor is just not memorable. There are a lot of options for fine dining in Scottsdale. The menu offers variety but some of the entrees are not that appealing. In my opinion bread should be offered at the table. The desserts were beautifully prepared, but again the flavors were not outstanding. Overall I would recommend The Americano, but it isn't one of my favorites.

Food was good, overpriced spaghetti and 4 half slices of bread (usually complimentary)was $5. On the other hand our waiter Taylor was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable about the food and is a big asset to this restaurant!

Nice restaurant and great vibe. The food was good, the only bad thing was that I ordered my ribeye well done and my wife ordered her filet medium well. When we received our food our steaks were cooked opposite of what we asked for.

Service was ok, but after being seated on patio, no one came for over 10 mins. So although i am flexible they had to overcome a poor start. We were one of only three couples on patio, but believe the wait staff are spread thin.

Food was awsome , portions to value seemed more like i was in New York. 4 oz of pasta for $21-$29 was awsome flavors but felt was overpriced since this was mire of an appetizer.

Drinks are definitely sky high on pricing. One of the highest i have seen in Phoenix.

In summary, loved the ambiance and food, but based on overall pricing, this is maybe a on e a month or a quarter visit. Glad i am not a big drinker since at this place its easy to get a drink bill as much as your food bill.

The restaurant is very pretty but the food and wines are very overpriced. My husband had the duck which he thought was just average and I had the pasta pomodoro and meatballs appetizer. Pasta was delicious but the meatballs were just ok, the texture seemed off to me.
The Bella house salad was excellent and I would recommend the cocktail Versace on the Floor. We may try this place again but aren’t in any rush.

If I could give more stars, especially towards service & food, I would . There are so many choices in restaurants in scottsdale. And to walk into somewhere, where you are greeted so warmly and professionally and to then be treated like royalty at your table.! It's heaven ! I also appreciate seeing the manager walking around, clearing tables at times, and checking on everything making sure everyone is happy and well taken care of ! Thank you to all the amazing people who work there !!

service started slow with a10+ minute wait for our glasses of wine. Then the waitress was rude. After we ordered our main course she came back 15 minutes later to inform the halibut was gone. We asked to review the u to reorder and that took 10 minutes. When the arrived it was cold! Great flavor but who likes a cold piece of fish or steak!
They did offer a discount but the evening sucked!!!!!
