So, we haven't been to this location a long time ago and most recently, we've been to the location at High Street in North Scottsdale. We know that they make really good thin crust pizza with good flavor and their bruschetta is also pretty good...More

We had dinner at La Bocca U.P. The food was alright, just that they over did the balsamic vinegar on the plates. How can you be an Italian restaurant and not have Italian wines on your list.

I had Chicken Lemone, the pasta was chewy at best and the chicken I believe was boiled. Cesar salad was disapointing at best with no cheese added and lettuce was weird. Main reason we went there was for tiramisu. They did not have any that...More
