BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"The food at Brio's has great taste, but very little meat is provided in most dishes for a premium price........$21.00 for a bowl of pasta with very little shrimp and lobster, maybe 1/2 cup of cut up fish was included in the pasta and the lasagna is meatless! Would recommend to a friend who wasn't worried about cost or that most all dishes have very little meat included."

The secrets of Italy’s food are proudly showcased by the man who creates the most innovative cuisine this side of heaven. Chef Marcellino Verzino's herb infused pastas, reduction sauces, heaps of crustaceans, wild game, truffles and more are available Mon-Sun for dinner. His porcini infused Fettuccine sautéed with fresh lobster chunks, shitake mushrooms, and truffle oil or his seven bone veal rack finished with a creamed spicy whiskey reduction sauce are two of his winning creations.<br />Think of us for your next celebration! There is no end to the elegance and magic Marcellino Ristorante can bring to you and your family & friends!

Located in the heart of Ahwatukee, Arrivederci Trattoria features Nouvelle Italian Cuisine and a wide array of wines from around the world. Enjoy a quiet dinner in the casual yet elegant dining room or treat yourself to Happy Hour in the modern yet cozy bar/lounge. The menu consists of healthy appetizers, traditional pasta dishes, classic chicken, veal, and seafood entrees, and a selection of mouthwatering desserts. You'll fall in love with the warm focaccia bread made fresh every day in our brick oven and you will keep coming back for the homemade mozzarella and the Chef's special Chocolate Tiramisu. Top off your evening with live music as you relax on the lounge couches with a glass of wine.
