We had a delicious dinner at La Torretta. Our favorite dinners are the wonderful Caesar salad, delicious pasta with sausage, spinach and ricotta stuffed in a large pasta shell, the Hawaiian sunfish and cheese cake for dessert! Perfect service as well.

Only one complaint, otherwise this restaurant has terrific food, a wonderful vibe, and excellent staff. Small annoyances: Martinis were not cold enough and please don't try to make a chocolate martini with lack of knowledge of what they are. It was disappointing following a wonderful experience. Chocolate martinis should be fabulous. Suggest the bartender try one from a pro, they take some finesse.

Manuel was very attentive, informative and personable. The food was the best we’d had within 5 days in Sedona, despite going to other recommended restaurants. Regardless of the occasion, special or not, I highly recommend this restaurant for the food, the environment and their staff.

About the restaurant
Take a culinary trip to Naples, Italy at Fat Olives. This contemporary trattoria is famous for its authentic, Neapolitan-style pies baked in a wood-fired oven using traditional techniques. Voted Best of Flag, the menu at Fat Olives also features pasta dishes, a special kid menu and gluten-free fare so no one is left out.

Fat Olives is the perfect destination for the pizza gourmand. The culinary team prides itself on using tomatoes imported from San Marzano for authentic results. Ask for the daily special or order the Belgio Dolce for delicious fusion of imported salami, brussel sprouts, house-made Calabrian chili oil and local honey. Complement it with a house made tiramisu or a bottle of wine. The bar offers a wide range of vintages, served by the bottle or glass. Fat Olives is open Mondays through Sundays with daily happy hour from 2:00-5:00.

Downtown Phoenix
About the restaurant
Tratto is headed by Chris Bianco who is a James Beard award-winning chef. Reservations are highly recommended as the seating fills fast. Parties over six are required to have reservations. Walk-ins are always available at the bar top on a first come first served basis. The menu is small but well thought out and balanced. Try the Farinata, which is a thin savory chickpea crepe. Fill up on a pan seared double-cut pork chop or the grilled two wash ranch piccolo chicken. Tratto has a small wine list heavily focused on Italian reds and whites that will perfectly compliment the cuisine. Cocktails and draft beers are also available.

The experience my friends and I had at Tratto was nothing short of absolutely incredible. Our reservation was the last of the night right before closing but they never once made us feel rushed. The service was amazing, the staff and the food was phenomenal. The pastries were divine and the pastry chef herself was so kind. I cannot wait to go back and dine in again.

About the restaurant
If you’ve ever eaten at a family-run Italian restaurant back East, you’ll appreciate what Pasta Brioni is all about. From the second you walk in the door to this Scottsdale establishment, the management and wait staff treat you like family – in fact, it seems that there are so many regulars at Pasta Brioni that many of them may be family. Rich wood paneling and a gorgeous wood bar, white linen tables, stained glass lights and Rat Pack music playing all add to this incredibly inviting ambiance.

Always great food. Bar area is fun and spunky. Great service, Martinis could be a little larger but oh well. Everything else was great. We will be back.
