Love the Virtu brunch. Each item on the menu is unique and delicious. My favorite is the French Toast but everyone always loves what they order.

While the ambiance and service was great, the food was sub par. A few of the dishes we ordered were too salty, and the gnocchi chicken/sauce tasted like spoiled vinegar. The cocktails were delicious, though.

Valentine's day. The food was too hit or miss, some plates really good, some boring, some not good at all. Mixed drinks were really good.

We really like Virtù but LOVED it for Valentine’s Day. I’d give 5 stars except the dessert didn’t wow me and our wine pairing arrived after we’d eaten the first course.

One of the finest restaurants in the Valley. The Polpo is without a doubt the best in the Valley. No one prepares it like Gio.

The menu changes from time to time but there is not one item on the menu that you should shy away from. Each item is properly prepared and presented and tastes wonderful.

Their wine offerings have something for every taste and budget and the wait staff is knowledgeable, courteous and friendly.

Everything about this place is great! The asparagus small plate has to be the best asparagus I've ever had. The outdoor patio is just beautiful. The service was excellent. Our waitress accidentally ordered the wrong entree for me and she quickly rectified the situation and brought me out the correct meal and did not charge me for it. It is a little pricey so be prepared for that but in my opinion it's worth it.

I had very high expectations for Virtù and it delivered beautifully! Our server, Ivan, was the perfect ambassador for the is charming restaurant. All his recommendations were spot on. Ivan was the perfect mix of being highly attentive but never overbearing. We enjoyed the Volpo and Asparagi for course one. Both dishes were good but the Voplo is probably one of the best preparations of Octopus I’ve ever tasted. For entreè, my husband and I shared a bowl of broccolini spaghetti and seared duck breast with cippolini onions and mandarin. Exquisite! The portions of food are just right - especially when all those flavors are so satisfying. Cocktails are also very good. The Ice Queen is particularly beautiful. Our dessert of Saffron Panna Cotta and the Salted Caramel pot de creme (I’m not even sure what it was but was generously given to us by Ivan) was the perfect ending to this brilliant meal. Thank you, Ivan for your impeccable service. And congratulations to Chef Gio Rossi, your restaurant is certainly worth all the accolades it receives and more.

We were two women with reservations...they tried to sit us in the middle of the room in front of the door..we felt like second class clients. Loved the burrata!!! Octopus was extremely salty from other times.
Thank you and we'll look forward to returning . Sharon Powell

The food here was quite good; and the waiter was excellent. We weren't overly happy, however, with the person who greeted and seated us (he wasn't friendly at all; in fact, hardly spoke to us if at all) and were not crazy with our table, which was located immediately next to the door--it was a cold evening and drafty as waiters went in and out to the patio. Nevertheless, the food and drink was very good and the waiter was helpful and friendly.

Brought my cousins from out of state for dinner. Even tho there was a large party in the special dining room, our server and other servers were friendly and helpful. Our server ( we had to clarify with him that he wasn’t 12- lol) was terrific. He explained the menu and entrees with enthusiasm and made us want to order everything! Our meal was delicious , the atmosphere was warm and cozy. It was just a lovely experience. We dined for the first time in October and we’re anxious to return. After this last experience we will be back again soon

This was one of the best restaurants that any of the 4 of us have ever enjoyed. In another part of the world it would definitely be deserving of Michelin stars. We had Burrata chees imported from Italy and definitely the best I have ever had. We split both of the pasta dishes among the 4 of us. Both were outstanding and the Tomahawk steak that we split between the 4 of us, may have been the best piece of steak this carnivore has ever consumed. The deserts were also out standing.
The service matched the quality of the food This is a MUST for anyone who wants an outstanding dining experience in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area

We love this restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious with thoughtful, elegant presentation and a very strong balance of flavor. Most chefs under season their food and this chef is genius and talented in his use of seasoning and spice. The asparagus with duck egg and fois gras vinaigrette is one of our very favorites. The scallops were outstanding as was the wagyu. Proportion size is spot on with interesting, well executed combinations. The arugula, persimmon, pomegranate aril salad with brown butter was one of the most delicious salads I have had in a very long time. Well done and exceptionally good. Whenever we know we are going to Scottsdale, Virtu is our very first dinner reservation. The ambiance just gets better and better, a nice vibe and intelligent, well educated staff.

Our entree’s were all amazing and of course the sticky toffee cake was exceptional. I will keep coming to this place as often as I can!!

I heard about Virtu on the Food Network,"The best thing I ever ate", the chef recommended the octopus and I took the opportunity to visit the restarant when I was in town for a wedding. Yes the octopus was amazing. My husband loved the duck entre and the chocolate desert was amazing too. The best food that we found in Scottsdale, hands down!
