Vincent Guerithault, chef/owner of Vincent on Camelback, is considered by many to be Phoenix"s culinary prize. For almost 30 years, Vincent has been combining his expertise in classic French cooking with Southwestern ingredients to create a unique blend of flavors that has become his signature. His style is constantly evolving. Critics note that his food is always "intriguing and inspiring." Patrons say it's sumptuous. Vincent was the first chef ever to receive a Citation of Excellence from the International Food & Wine Society. He has enjoyed countless commendations, including the James Beard award as "America's Best Chef: Southwest" and the prestigious Chevalier de L'Ordre du Merite Agricole on behalf of the Republic of France. In 2003 Vincent's on Camelback was placed 24th on the World's Top 50 Restaurants by British based Restaurant Magazine. Zagat has ranked his restaurant "most popular" and "best in area." We look forward to welcoming you to Vincent's!

"Vincent's continues to be a wonderful place for a quiet romantic dinner. I've been coming to Vincent's for a number of years and I'm always rewarded in doing so. The only negative I can say is that over the years Vincent's has done very little to update or brighten up the atmosphere of the restaurant which is badly needed to compliment the wonderful dishes they prepare nightly."

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 authentic Italian cuisine are proudly showcased by the man who creates the most innovative dishes this side of heaven. Let Chef Marcellino mesmerize your palate any night of the week with hand-crafted, naturally flavored pastas [saffron, squid ink, cacio e pepe, etc.]; heaps of crustaceans; wild game; reduction sauces; seasonal truffles and more. Seeking simplicity? Scialatielli alle Vongole. Comfort food? Gnocchi so light and sumptuous they'll make you sigh. Decadence? Porcini-infused Fettuccine, sautéed with generous amounts of lobster, shitake mushrooms and a white truffle drizzle. Vegetarian: Fettucine Contadina with a dollop of ricotta. Vegan and no-gluten options available; please allow extra preparation time or provide advance notice if possible. Celebrate your next occasion with us, and share the delicious, old-World elegance of a Marcellino experience with 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.
