Marcellino Ristorante

7114 E. Stetson Drive Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Central Scottsdale | 480-990-9500

Location Description:

Classy, upscale Italian spot where you'll find some of the best house-made pastas in town. Everything from gnocchi in tomato sauce and saffron linguini with clams to red and white strozzaprete (priest-stranglers) and black fettuccine with lobster. Fish and meat entrees are more expensive, but if you stick to the pasta, you won't be disappointed, and it won't wreck your checking account. For dessert, get the panna cotta, which is exceptionally thick and rich. And as a digestif, request the house-made limoncello, a liqueur that'll leave your stomach smiling.
