Owner Chef Pedro Delgado opened this casual but excellent comfort food Italian restaurant late in 2014 after over 25 years in the Italian restaurant business in Southern California. The whole family is involved, with his daughter having the name of the the restaurant and both are named after the mother of his mentor in California. The atmosphere is not the reason to dine here. The food is the reason. The quality is as good or better than any other Italian restaurant in Arizona. The quality combined with fair prices make this a bargain casual restaurant that could justify much higher prices. The family sets a high standard for quality and friendliness. It's a gem of a neighborhood place. The many preparations of fettucine are my favorites.
