When your hostess is your waitress and your cashier you're not in for good service. Saw the reviews and had a groupon which explains why we drove 40 miles to dine here. Leisurely dining is one thing but when the only other server asks if...More

I will be back, for a small place it was really great. The pasta melted in my mouth, the seafood was fresh, and the breads were amazing.

It is indeed small, quaint and family owned, so very friendly with food that tastes home made. We enjoyed our bruschetta, which was very garlic-y and good. We each had a different veal for our main course and each of us found it to be...More

Tesoro is a must visit in Scottsdale. The chef is an amazing young woman that does most of the cooking herself. Everything was absolute perfection from the bruschetta appetizer to the delicious Tiramisu we shared for dessert. It is an intimate setting perfect for a...More

This is a small family owned and operated Italian restaurant. The food and service were very good. There were lots of locals and there was a large family group celebrating a birthday. WE would definitely go back.

Chanced upon this place after a recent arrival to Scottsdale. This restaurant is located in a nondescript strip mall, not exactly inviting. But if you persevere, you'll be rewarded. This a teeny restaurant, only 12 tables. We went on a Sat night, with a reservation....More

We are seasonal visitors to Scottsdale. Happened upon the place when it was owned by the family several years ago. Hated to see them sell because we thought no one could keep up their good food. But we were wrong. Still as good as it...More

Went here on a date and it was awesome! You wouldn't think such a nice place would be in a strip mall. The food was awesome and you could tell everything was fresh. The desserts were amazing. Can't wait to go back! Very quaint little...More

It seems that Tesoro has changed hands. The last time we tried it the service was horrid, food mediocre and we have no plans to return. A restaurant is only a location, the people that produce the product are what's... More
