i had not heard of this place and friends did.. a gem of tempe and Italian food in this area despite its looks from the outside.. fantastic food!
dinner was fantastic...all four of us were extremely happy with the food, service was get. Overall this place is a great local restaurant
the food is Old school Italian as well which is actually just fine with me as there is nothing better to me than an heaping portion of spaghetti and meatballs to bring back old family memories. Service was friendly and food came out fairly fast.
SUPER DELICIOUS! feels authentic. Get the gnocchi!
overall they do a really good job at getting you more water, food & checking on you. No complaints
This is truly authentic, delicious Italian Fare that makes me feel comforted like I'm home again! The meal began with good, warm bread and butter; then a salad with blue cheese (NOT Ranch)! I had spinach lasagna that tasted as if Grandma had been tending the sauce in the kitchen all day.
Service was great, prices are good; atmosphere is that of an established,
"gently used" family owned restaurant, not formula chain like usual. Can't wait to have leftovers!!
I am inlooove with the chicken valestano!!! it's seriously good (either that or i'm just a chicken lover). Service is good
Easily one of the top 3 Italian restaurants in the Phx area. Chicken parm was fantastic, so was the cheese ravioli and stuffed eggplant!
This is our favorite restaurant of many years, with a quaintness and coziness that are hard to find on this side of the Atlantic. We eat in the bar, where there's dim lighting and old-fashioned, roomy booths. Strains of Frank Sinatra waft through the room. It's a place to soak up atmosphere and people-watch, as much as anything. Often there are large family groups celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special occasions, and watching the desserts delivered is especially entertaining. On a quieter evening, just your own conversation becomes more special in this ultra-relaxing setting. Dinner begins with melt-in-your-mouth bread with butter. The basket will be refilled as many times as you like. It's hard to choose from the menu when you know how good everything is, but my favorite is the scampi, while my husband favors the scallops. The seasoning is delicious and unique. We've tried several appetizers, including the caprizzi, zucchini, and shrimp cocktail, and enjoyed them all. Desserts are equally good, and they add new ones here and there. Service is friendly and helpful and you're never rushed as you enjoy the experience and watch the sunset through the big window in the bar. There's also a TV featuring the most timely sports events, for those who are interested. At Christmas, the whole bar area and the adjoining restaurant are lit with colored lights, and in the bar they're reflected off the window to make it even more festive. Our Riazzi's Christmas dinner is an important part of the holidays. This is a family-run restaurant, small and intimate, not a "chic" or "upscale" joint for people seeking to impress or be impressed. It's a Left Bank kind of place, not fancy but full of character and tradition, and if that's what you love best, you'll enjoy Riazzi's.
Really nice place to have any type of reunion !!! Best food ever =) !!!
