Mall oasis lures shoppers with thrifty prices and the aroma of garlicky Italian eats.. In Short An alternative to the predictable food court and culinary baubles of the affluent Scottsdale Fashion Square, this eatery has combined the robust flavor of an Italian bistro with the convenience and cost of a walk-up counter. For about $7, enjoy the tagliatelle verde (spinach noodles and grilled chicken with Roma tomatoes) featuring an asiaggo cream sauce loaded with fresh garlic--or the sumptuous chicken Tuscany sandwich with basil cream and roasted red peppers.
nice selection of sandwiches and salads, also good selection of pasta of the day, etc. sometimes the bread is stale and the lettuce is wilted. a little overprice, but then again, so are all of the restaurants in the Esplanade.
