We sat at the bar seating end enjoyed the funky vibe, good background music, and being able to watch/enjoy all the creativity of the restaurant—from the delicious cocktails to all thoughtful and flavorful small plates and spoons. Highly recommend…and will be telling friends who visit the area that it is a must. Wish we were local so we could enjoy this treasure more!

*Please note, we offer both a 3-5 course prix fixe choice starting at $95 per person and an ala carte menu. If choosing the prix fixe menu, the whole table must participate.

Chef Gio Osso’s intimate gathering spot is tucked inside Old Town Scottsdale’s Bespoke Inn, where his menu features contemporary cuisine inspired by his Mediterranean roots and global influences. Simply dubbed "honest craft," Chef Gio's menu changes weekly, and is comprised of reliable and satisfying mainstays like homemade pastas, hearty meat dishes and superb seafood. Join us for dinner on evenings from Tuesday to Saturday inside our intimate dining room or enjoy a delightful Arizona evening on our beautifully lit patio.

We’re so happy to have found this little hidden gem of a restaurant. My husband has all sorts of food allergies, so for him to be able to dine freely is a big deal! Not to mention the food is delicious, a flavor explosion! The atmosphere is like a little European cafe with lovely dining music in the background. The waiter was great as well, very knowledgeable and personable. We will definitely be back!

Love! Love! Love this place! The wine, the food and the service all fantastic. The hummus was great, the watermelon salad top notch. Home made pastas are quite delish. One of my favorite restaurants in Scottsdale. Never had a bad experience here.

Waitress was terrible. Took her 10 minutes when we first got there to ask for our drink order. Was going to get our own drinks at the bar. Too a long time in between rounds to come back to service our table. Wasn’t too personable either.

unique and innovative dishes served in a modern setting with a European vibe. Recently added cocktails to their extensive wine list. Main entrees, though not large, are very artistically prepared and plated. Many small plates from which to choose, and several lovely desserts with which to end your meal. There is nothing else in Scottsdale like Zingara.

Food as always was very good. A bit understaffed last night as the bar keep really had to hustle, which she did with a great attitude! Always a quality experience.

We attended the 2XO Dinner in the lounge. The event was excellent although it started a little late. The host was very informative, the food was outstanding and we went the next to two different liquor stores to purchase The Blend and The Kiawah! Great additions to our bourbon collection. Service was outstanding. We really enjoy Bourbon & Bones in Old Town and Peoria!
