We chose outdoor seating under heaters for less lively (quieter) experience. Grat place to meet after work. Lobster ravioli and service really great!

Delicious! We has the salmon salad for lunch.
The only drawback to this place is that it is tucked in the back of a shopping center, so is not right on 7th street which made it a little tricky to find at first.

Pubblico is a beautiful and contemporary place to eat. It was quiet the night we were there so good for talking. The meatball appetizer was amazing, light and fluffy meatball, perfectly cooked polenta. We both got homemade pasta, ravioli and linguine. I highly recommend these dishes. We had the apple and fig bread pudding for dessert...yum!

We went there for a birthday dinner. Two pasta dishes were well received by our friends. I ordered Beef Risotto which resulted in a portion of beef, filet mignon, sitting atop the risotto. I expected the beef to be sliced into bite sized portions and incorporated into the beef. However, both the beef and risotto were done very well. They were out of tiramisu so I opted for the flourless chocolate cake which was excellent. But, the coffee ordered with it was very thin in appearance (served tin a clear glass cup) and, when cream was added, revealed itself to be extremely weak and unsatisfying as coffee. Overall, the food was above average and worth the visit.

We had a great time at this comfortably casual restaurant. The staff was friendly and engaging and the food was once again great. The only negative was they ran out of the wine we had selected for dinner so we had to change wines mid meal.

Service was slow. The kitchen was extremely slow, wait staff only slightly faster. No reason for it as the restaurant was 25% full. No excuse for it—the last time we were there the kitchen was equally as slow. Food was good

Not easy to find! The sign to parking should be further east on Bethany Home! But it was worth looking for. I and my guest both LOVE, but are picky about Italian food. This restaurant passed! The pasta dishes were fresh and delicious.

Jose, our waiter, was excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the ingredients in each entree, and
his recommendations were wonderful. Three of us had the Seafood Fettucini which was outstanding. The Cauliflower Steak was moist and tender. The Fig appetizers were scruptious. The avocado salads were tasty and the Creme Brulee was perfection.

My niece was in town for a conference and wanted Italian good. She's also vegan and Pubblico has a great selection of vegan offerings. I had chicken Marsala-outstanding! My girlfriend had the seafood risotto which was delicious. My niece had the clam linguine and loved it. Great wine and dessert. Already have another reservation. Just. Go.

Had a really nice dinner with 3 friends. The drinks were all tasty and homemade pasta with fresh seafood was delicious. We also had the crème Brule and tiramisu for dessert and both were excellent. Nice service and the manager went to every table to ensure all was well. Looking forward to going back.

I ate here for lunch a couple of times and love their chicken chopped salad. Decided to try it for dinner with friends and was not disappointed! It was a birthday, and several people stopped by our table to wish our friend a happy birthday. Everyone was very friendly and upbeat. We shared the calamari, caprese, lobster ravioli and the butternut squash gnocchi. Everything was superb. Craft cocktail was delicious and we enjoyed the wine selection. Dinner with drinks for three people at $100 seems very reasonable to me. Can't wait to eat on their patio once the weather cools. Also, no one has discovered this place for lunch...both times there were only a couple of tables with patrons. Go try it!

The food was average; nothing special, but the noise level was objectionably loud that prevented any reasonable conversation. I would only recommend this restaurant for times when it's not crowded due to the level of noise. We had several different dishes, pizza, linguine with clams, rigatoni with sausage, gnocchi, and baked chicken with mashed potatoes. None was outstanding, but all were edible. The staff was nice enough to comp one meal and two desserts for our discomfort and less than satisfying food choices. Thank you for that; otherwise choose another Italian restaurant. We're sorry that the evening didn't work out for us.

It was our first time there and it was fabulous! I had the chicken parmesan and my husband had the linguine with clam sauce. Both of them were very good. The house made pasta is out of this world! Our server was excellent and we met the owner and he was very interested in what we thought about everything. We will definitely go back!

Confusion reigned. Ordered a seafood risotto dish with little white wine sauce. They didn't honor the order. The waitress apologized. I ate it anyway. Most of the clams had no meat while there were two shrimp and mostly calamari soaked in sauce. I mentioned this to the host when leaving and he said the chef didn't operate like that. We won't be back and cannot recommend.

Went for the first time last weekend and was really impressed! A wonderful and diverse menu with great food. I had one of my favorites, spaghetti and it was amazing! Sometimes the simple things are a really good way to judge a place. My date had the seafood linguini and loved it. A great bottle of wine with cocktails before dinner along with dessert. We're going back this weekend. My new favorite place!

The four of us are very particular about our Italian food. One of us use to live Italy. We found the food to be very good. Better than most Italian restaurants in Phoenix. We also found the service to be very good. Our only problem was the noise level. Bad acoustics. When we go back we will sit outside.
