I first heard about Santisi Brothers when our neighbor told us it was not just the Best Sports Bar around but the food was not typical bar food. So my husband and I gave it a try and all I can say is we were not disappointed, in fact it has become one of our favorite restaurants. We gave Santisi Brothers a try on a weeknight with our daughter. We arrived and found a table in front of a wall unit that had more TV's on it then I have ever seen before. After we sat down a "Santisi Girl" greeted us. I explained to her this was our first time in and she went over the menu with us and recommended some of her favorite dishes.
We ordered a few large beers and a root beer float for our daughter. When the drinks arrived all I can say is that FROZEN MUGS arrived FROZEN. Ice crystals were floating on top of the beer. Those beers had to be the coldest beers I have ever been served in a restaurant/bar ever.
For dinner my husband ordered the Baby Back Ribs with the Giovanni Sauce, which I was told the sauce was designed by one of the Santisi Brothers. My daughter ordered the Chicken Tenders because they were made fresh to order. I ordered a 14" Extra Thin Crust Pepperoni and Sausage pizza with 12 hot wings.
The food arrived and the presentation and smell was amazing. My thin crust pizza was thin and crisp and the sausage is actually real sausage that has been cut long ways instead of that crumbled sausage. My wings were hot and perfectly sauced. Not just hot, but very nice flavor. The ribs my husband got were incredible; the sauce is a blend of spicy and sweet, which we have never experienced before. You could tell that the chicken tenders were made from scratch, they were tender and the portion was large.
If you're a sports fan or you just like really good food, Santisi Brothers should be on your short list. I would consider myself a fan of Santisi Brothers now and you should be one too. Check them out, I promise you'll be happy you did.
Good ambiance, best service with good quality food – My job is a stressful one, so when I'm tired with work I look forward to SANTISI BROTHERS.
It is the best sports place, they have over 100 TVs. Atmosphere is great and staff is very friendly. It is always clean and if a spill does occur, the staff takes care of it immediately.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for fun.
Thats alot of friggin TV's!! – Pick your seat wisely (just kidding) you can see the games from anywhere!
The Best Sports Bar ever!!! – This is, hands down, the best place to watch your team in the valley. They have over 100 TV's to watch your favorite team in action.
5 stars for food, servers and atmosphere. Always a great place to be.
Great Atmosphere! – This is a great / fun atmosphere. Good food and reasonable prices! Would recommend to anyone looking for fun!
Not just Best of Sports..this is the BEST OF ARIZONA. – For over 14 years – almost 10 of which, I’ve attended, Santisi Brothers has BY FAR been the leader in so many categories, I couldn’t possibly state each. So I will:
BEST OVERALL NY-ITALIAN FOOD…eh just make that best food, period (And some people think this is just a bar…bah!): BEST PIZZA – both thin and thick Sicilian style. BEST WINGS to go with them. BEST LASAGNA – that’s my personal favorite on the menu. Heck, I’ve been coming for nearly 10 years and have tried practically everything on the menu – EVERYTHING is PERFECT. Let me tell you, and this should give you a hint about their standard for quality: in this past decade, nothing has changed in taste. It has been prepared for us piping hot and wonderful back when the Dbacks won the World Series as it is now. I truly believe if you have that good of a product, DO NOT change it.
BEST SERVERS: These gals are GREAT. I could be gone 2½ months and they will still remember me and my order…down to how I like my wings. But, beyond their “waitressing” they are extremely friendly, funny and have just the right bit of attitude to make sure you enjoy your visit. Did I mention, they’re absolutely BEAUTIFUL? You don’t have to go to Hooter’s which is a fake look at fake women…come to Santisi’s for the real deal. Besides, Hooter’s is great if you’re 14. When you’re ready to grow up, come to Santisi’s.
BEST SPORTS PLACE: Oh, yeah, I forgot, they have over 100 TVs, even ones on their generous patio outside. And these were NOT found at a pawn shop. Hell no. It would take me three to six months to afford one. HD, wide screens, and those awesome servers I mentioned will (WITHIN reason) change them for you when you want to watch a different sports program or play the NTN games. This should give you an idea why you should watch sports at Santisi Brothers: there’s a line at what, 8AM, Sunday to get in just to watch football. And when I (stupidly) wander in around noon looking to find a seat, I’m in no luck. The fans here are in droves and know where to be with likeminded sports enthusiasts.
Did I leave anything else out? Well, here’s a rundown of the whole picture:
Service: 5/5 - VERY friendly and funny.
Food Taste: 5/5 - Best in (NY) Italian I've had. Best is their Lasagna.
Food Quality: 5/5
Cleanliness: 5/5 - Very kept up, always clean, and if a spill does occur, the staff immediately takes care of it.
Friendly Staff: 5/5 - I've developed friends with some of the girls, and guys, outside of Santisi's
Fast Busing: 5/5 - Extremely - they're always there when you need them.
Smoking Area: Outside, very large patio, and even some of the patio is segregated for non-smokers, if you prefer to bake in the AZ heat. (It's covered, though, with both heaters and mist’ers.)
Would I Return?: 5/5 Absolutely, I've been going for over 9 years, after all.
Would I Recommend?: Yes
And to who?: Anyone from age 5-97
Additional Information: You've gotta see it for yourself. Especially if you like sports. I don’t particularly, except for channel FUEL and D-Backs. I go for all the other reasons. The Girls, The Poker and the NTN.
The ABSOLUTE BEST Sports Bar... – My job is a stressful one, so when i'm done with work I look forward to SANTISI BROTHERS. I've been a fan of SANTISI BROTHERS for the past 8 years and let me tell you why. As I walk in the front door, the bartender notices me and before I can even say hello she is placing my favorite drink down in front of me. Her name is Debbie and she is the ABSOLUTE BEST bartender I have ever been served by or have seen in action. Debbie has complete control of her bar. She just floats around taking care of everyone, with a smile.
Debbie then puts a menu in front of me and now its time for me to make a decision. Let me tell you, its not an easy one, the food is amazing and mostly everything on this menu is made from scratch. My favorite is the Baby Back Ribs with Giovanni Sauce and sauteed Veggies. These are to die for. Then on Wednesdays I always order the Crab Leg Special which is 1 1/2 pounds of Crab Legs for ONLY $15.95!!
Did I mention SANTISI BROTHERS has over 115 TV's for your SPORTS needs. Yes that's not a typo, SANTISI BROTHERS actually has over 115 TV's. I look forward to watching the Coyotes and Suns this season, but I look forward to the SERVICE AND FOOD even more.
Do yourself a favor, get over to SANTISI BROTHERS and see for yourself...
AWESOME PEOPLE!!!! – This place is that best place ever! This Friday will be the best great guinness toast ever in the valley! Everyone should come!!!
#1 Sports Bar – You're really missing out if you've never been here before. THE absolute BEST chicken tenders. You'll also never find a better pizza. Like sports? You name your team and they'll find the game. Big screen t.v.'s everywhere. I rate this the best sports bar in the North-West valley. Worth the drive.
