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

Typical New York Style Italian restaurant. Friendly service with huge portions. My husband had a huge salad with spaghetti bolonese and it was very good. We also had the breaded ravioli as an appetizer and that was disappointing. I had the linguine and clams which was also disappointing. Not much clam flavor and it was a little dry. All in... More

Food was good. Staff was very friendly and unhurried. They were there to make our experience pleasurable. We noticed many people that the staff was familiar with, so thought maybe it was a favorite with locals also

We love Italian food and this restaurant certainly delivered. It was nice and quiet, small and intimate. The food was really good and the portions were huge. The bread and olive oil mixture were wonderful. Service was very tasty. House wines were a bit pricey.

Had the veal shank special and it was spectacular !!! We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The calamari appetizer is always perfect!

Very good meal here at La Toretta. Went on a Friday evening at around 7 and the restaurant was only about half full. Our server Chaz was very engaging, friendly and helpful. I ordered one of the night's specials, a Sea Bass with an artichoke caper sauce served with 2 crab raviolis and hubs got the lasagna. My fish was... More

Excellent food in a busy corner of Scottsdale. Appropriate for lunch, though only open on Thursday and Friday for lunch, and great for dinner. The clam linguini is excellent.
