Charming red-and-white checked tablecloths, glass lamps, and inexplicably hunky waiters -- welcome to Pasta Brioni. Traditional Italian dishes populate the menu; while there are no moments of culinary genius, what's delivered is solid and tasty. Homemade spaghetti and meatballs, linguini pescatore (clams, mussels, calamari, and shrimp), and heart-healthy cappellini with basil and tomato are favorites. Hefty calzones and generously-sized pizzas are pasta alternatives. Dessert features treats like tiramisu and hazelnut ice cream, both exquisite and worth making room for at the end of your meal. Perfect for a relaxing lunch or dinner.
Best for Restaurants near the Convention Center Because: Pasta Brioni brings the charm and authentic home cooking of East Coast Italian restaurants to the gorgeous North Scottsdale desert.
