My favorite is a traditional, small family owned place at Osborn and Hayden Roads called "Uncle Sal's" www.unclesalsaz.com. There is also a local favorite with absolutely no curb appeal called La Locanda at Gold Dust and Scottsdale Roads. Also, Arrivederci at Scottsdale and Thunderbird www.azitaly.com/scottsdale_Home_Page.html. These are small and fairly casual, but the food is amazing, great service and every one is unique.

If you could narrow it down to a more specific area, we might be able to give you some better recommendations!

well, I posted on the Scottsdale forum, I guess I did not feel I needed to be any more specific than that. Should I have included the township, county, etc?

I think what life is my vacation meant was where are you staying in Scottsdale? That way we can try to suggest places that are more convenient to you.

Yes thank you, aztchr. I was merely trying to be helpful, as there are many great Italian restaurants in Scottsdale, and Scottsdale encompasses quite a large area. For instance, it could take you 40-50 minutes to get from the Four Seasons Troon, in North Scottsdale, to Old Town Scottsdale. I was trying to provide more neighborhood-specific recommendations, but obviously you're not interested in helping us to better help you.

I recently vacationed in Scottsdale/Phoenix and I found a great place in Phoenix. Here is the review that I posted. If you go, request the home made pasta.

We saw Guiseppe's on a Food Network show, Diner's Drive In's and Dives. It is a little place in a strip mall. The show featured the bolognese sauce and home made pasta. Until the show came out, they were only making the pasta on the weekends. They have it everyday now. Both the bolognese and the pasta were delicious. My husband had the eggplant parm. He loved it. When he tasted my dish, he decided we had to go back again. A few days later, we were back, he got the bolognese and I got the lasagna. It was great too. Sadly we do not live in the area and we will miss the food
