Upon entering the restaurant, host was snobby. Food was average. Halibut just ok, shrimp del grotto only had 4 shrimp, more pasta! They don’t take Discover card, & made you feel bad about it. If you’re a Yankee fan, they might treat you better!

The service is OFFENSIVE, the owner needs to shower and stop chain smoking in front of guests. The food is disgusting. SAVE YOUR MONEY! This place needs "The Profit" and a serious makeover.

Amazing food and service. I ordered the halibut. Cooked perfectly... The wine sauce with capers added an intense flavor. It came with minestrone soup which was a great starter....home made. The waiter was amazing, making an enjoyable experience . So if you visit Scottsdale Old...More
