Went here for the second time this week for my birthday and it was equally as great as our first visit. Our server was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is authentic and quaint which is a nice break from the mediocre corporate restaurants that abound in Scottsdale. Our meals were imaginative and prepared beautifully. My duck breast was amazing with a nice smoky flavor and done to perfection. My date had the large bone pork chop which was equally impressive. All in all I would say this may have been my favorite place to dine in Scottsdale so far.

Everything about Virtu is fantastic. The staff were friendly and knowledgable, the food was excellent, and the bill was actually less than I had expected it to be. All around great place, highly recommended.

The vibe was great and the space was beautiful. The food was very good. The wait staff was arrogant and not as friendly or service minded as I would expect from a high-end establishment. For an example, they asked that we not stand at the bar and that we sit on the patio and someone would come and get us a drink there. Ok, but even knowing we went and sat there, no one came to ask for our drink order during the 10 minuted we waited. And when asking questions about the food/wine, I am pretty sure the server rolled his eyes at us! Although I do love interesting foods and drinks, I didn't love their approach of alterations being "politely declined". Overall, food was good but I wouldn't go back.

Great food, good presentation. The portions were a little on a small size, and the by the glass wines a bit too expensive.

Each time I eat here I walk away thinking this might be the best restaurant in town, This last meal convinced me that might is a must. They have what is definitely the best octopus I have ever had. The only downside is that we find some new thing each time we go but it doesn't stay on the menu. The great thing is that there is something else that is just as good but different.

The service and food were both excellent. I loved the ambiance outside, but the tables are too close together. You can hear each table’s conversations and they can hear yours. Overall, I highly recommend.

Great find! The grilled octopus was absolutely delicious as was the rigatoni. Nice wine and beverage selection. One of our favorite things: the Amaro flight to end the meal - super delicious!

The food is exceptional.. We has two starters - the Octopus and the Burrata on sweet Brioche.. were excellent and really could have just had 2 orders of that as the main. We had 3 different mains.. Duck, Pork Chop and Rigatoni... really great.. We are in Arizona about every 6 weeks and will make this one of our regular stops.

We were visiting from Seattle and had made dinner reservations based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. We arrived and were promptly seated outside at a cozy table with a padded bench and garden lights. The staff were friendly and our waiter was very knowledgable. The food was fantastic. We decided to order quite a few things to share. For starters we had a unique cocktail of strawberry/rhubarb and prosecco foam. We had a few! My favorite foos items were the octopus appetizer and the hand made pastas prepared to perfection. We also had some scrumptious seasonal salads, halibut cheeks and a 2 person bone in rib eye. For desert we ordered some kind of chocolate bomb and it was amazing. This is a perfect date night or special ocasion place. The prices are on the higher end, but worth it. When in Scottsdale I will definitely return.

This was our third time back and each time we are blown away by the amazing food. The menu has been different every time and each time we order an appetizer, two pastas, split an entree, and then try a dessert. I highly recommend this for any special evening and the prices are extremely reasonable for the level of service, food, and atmosphere.

My guest, with whom we have dined many times, said he felt that this was the best restaurant he had ever been to in Arizona, and we have been to many good ones. The Polpo was outstanding, as usual, as was the burrata presentation. Both pasta specials, including one with goat, were fresh and filled with amazing spices and tastes. We will be going back very soon.

We were truley blessed when they changed are reservations from a dnner to a spanish wine pairing
Dinner. The charcuterie include a bone in Jamon Iberico ham. That alone was worth the price of admission. The dinner was truly exceptional. The wine pairing was spot on. See photos.

I’m a Scottsdale resident since ‘97. I love the world class food from so many talented chefs, all within 15 minutes of my house. (Think 10 miles as traffic is not LA/NY/SanFran/Seattle/DC/Atlanta/San Diego).
We were so impressed with this we Asked manager lead time needed for reservations for 8 over Christmas.
