"Our servers was attentive, but the food was not entirely hot. I ordered the chicken stack dish, with mashed potatoes and veggies. The chicken and sauce were both hot and delicious, but the mashed potatoes were not hot. I expect my food to be hot when it arrives, and warm until I finish eating. A dining partner did not care for her cocktail, and ordered something different, but the waitress did not address anything about why she was not drinking it, and just left it sit on the table. Another dining partner (the designated driver) was drinking coffee, which was not hot. Finally our server did microwave it, to heat it up. I feel our server should have addressed these issues--at least not charge for the coffee would have been a professional gesture."

Classic Italian dishes with a contemporary flair have made Trattoria No.10 a Chicago favorite since 1989. Specialties on the daily menu include unique, homemade ravioli, rustic pastas, freshly prepared risotto, fresh fish selections and grilled filet of beef. The subdued elegance of the interior, with arched walkways, murals and original art provides an intimate atmosphere that is perfect for business lunches, pre-theater dining, romantic dinners or private parties.

Dining under the shady trees on Olive and Ivy’s massive patio feels more like Southern France than southern Scottsdale. If you are looking for pomp and circumstance of quiet elegance, try the signature private-dining venue, the Stamp Room. If it’s night-life, we have you covered twice with the outdoor lounge and bar. You’ll enter your own little Mediterranean world the first moment you set foot in Olive & Ivy.<br /><br />For some, the day simply doesn’t start unless it starts at The Marketplace at Olive & Ivy. Scents of fresh-baked muffins, croissants, and dark rich espresso lure passersby in from the quiet sidewalk. They read the paper. They sip squeezed orange juice. They toast the morning. Help yourself start every day the right way at the Marketplace.

"We sat at the chef's kitchen table because it was available. At first, we thought it would be fun, but soon realized that it was a very noisy place to try to have a conversation. I would rather sit in the dining room in the future. This was a Saturday night, so keep in mind that it was very busy.
Our server, Nate, was very attentive, and helpful with food choices.
The food was wonderful, as always."
