We really enjoyed this restaurant. The prosciutto with melon was outstanding and we had a special beet salad that was special! My wife had a flattened pork chop with mozzarella and prosciutto with a brown sauce- excellent. I had veal piccata also very good. Sauce with penne as a side was great. Tiramisu excellent. Decor a little dark but that's... More

Located in an upscale area. Food and service very good. A bit pricey, however, both food and alcohol. We all enjoyed our dishes.

Try Happy Hour with Michael and you'll be hooked! He knows his menu inside and out, is an excellent mixologist , and is very entertaining! Food is great - a little pricey after Happy Hour- but nice variety of fresh veggies, seafood and entrees.

I met a friend there for dinner on Valentine's Day. The food was very average. The portions were small. I ordered the chicken martini which was good. She had the fish which was good. The bread was stale. They poured a good glass of wine though. But it took an hour and a half to deliver our dinner. And we... More

A great place to spend an evening with friends, bring an appetite and a thirst for fine wine because this place has a lot of both.

A nice place. We went on a Saturday night and it was full. We are glad we had reservations. We had a seafood salad (much like a ceviche), rucola salad, tuna carpaccio, veal luca, fettuccine and penne pasta. We enjoyed each dish. The server was well informed about the entire menu and made some good suggestions. We had a very... More

This was my first revisit to this restaurant in 5 years. The last one was not memorable as the service was poor and food just ok,the reason for no t returning. This visit was different in that the food was very good,but about 20% higher than some comparable Italian competitors. The service was spotty-in that I asked for more bread[which... More

We have been coming here for years. We spend the holidays with the kids and grandkids in Scottsdale and have a place nearby in Troon. Dinner at Gianfranco has become a ritual and this is my fourth review on the restaurant..We were a bit worried this year as we had heard there were new owners and some of the TA... More

We had a long standing reservation at 7:30 pm on New Year's Eve. We arrived right on time and were told "your table isn't ready." We have been going to Gianfranco's for years and always had fabulous service and were treated with respect. NOT TONIGHT. It seems the change of ownership could care less about customer service and reservations. We... More

Hello Jerry, I'm very sorry you had this experience at our restaurant. The management team, including Darcy the owner, were not informed of the situation when it occurred. We take pride in taking care of every customer that walks through our doors, and this shouldn't of happened to you or anyone else. We are looking into the matter and will... More
