Known for Neapolitan-style pizzas at Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana, Stefano Fabbri’s early 2020 opening marks a stark departure. The Americano is a high-end steakhouse that exists somewhere between America and Italy and isn’t quite a steakhouse. There’s a whole lot of beef on the menu, much from Niman Ranch, but the feeling and food travel in newer directions. Wagyu meatballs rest in silky, buttery tomato sauce. Fried chicken sandwiches gain lightness from pickled fennel. An improvisational summer pesto clings to garganelli. Pastas are solid, non-traditional, and made in house. Even sides like mac-and-cheese have twists and elevations (the mac gets a cacio e pepe treatment). If you’re into scene, thoughtful food, and a different kind of steakhouse, this opulent north Scottsdale restaurant is for you.
