This Italian restaurant is funky insofar as it decorated with frescoes, including a large recumbent naked woman being tended by flying cherubs playing bugles, puffy clouds on the ceiling, and a stained glass wall divider featuring Zeus. The bar has running lights and crackly glass. But when you put all of this randomness together, including the friendly bar tender who... More

This is an interesting intersection in Scottsdale - two of the corners have chain Italian restaurants, and a third has La Torretta. Do yourself a favor and skip the chains. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and personable. Food was more old world Italian, and our server was quick to let us know any dish could be modified any way we pleased.... More

Chas, our server, was friendly, informative, and efficient. He brought out freshly baked bread with a special homemade dipping oil infused with sun dried tomatoes, capers, herbs, and other delightful flavors mingled and whisked together; utterly delicious! We chose 2 entrees and the chicken breast stuffed with cheeses and herbs was totally yum! The fettucini with broccoli had 2 sizes... More

The restaurant has a dated feel. Our server was strange and not professional. The food was not bad but certainly nothing special. It was a Saturday night and less than half of the tables were filled. There are far better Italian restaurants in Scottsdale. We would not go back.

My wife and I both enjoyed large and tasty veal parmigiana entrees paired with a bottle of Valpollicella. Service was good and amiable. The wine list featured a good variety, but there was a shortage of lower-priced offerings and special values. There is a giant mural of a naked Venus that might not be to everyone's liking, but it didn't... More

La Torretta had excellent food all around. The service was great as well since we were the only large party in the restaurant. It is a little dark inside but the staff and taste more than make up for it. The Osso Buco was beyond excellent and is highly recommended. Not a single person in our group of 8 had... More

If you prefer to dine at a local establishment with excellent service, quality cuisine, and the personal touch of the Proprietor's input - look no further. Top it off with a good wine selection. Best of all, it's within walking distance of several area hotels. Enjoy!!!

Another member of our party and I split the shrimp and pasta special which had artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and capers and was truly terrific and delicious. I'm really glad that we split it because it was huge as one portion =- another member of the party had it also. The other member of our party had chicken with lemon... More

Our last night in Scottsdale and we felt like Italian. What a great choice! Moderate upscale, but comfortable to go there in shorts and sandals. Friendly greeting at the door and great attention throughout the meal. Our table of 4 tried a few different dishes. Two of us had the lasagna, and I've got to say, the best lasagna I've... More
