La Piccola Cucina
“[Andy] Pappas is a true character, one of those unforgettable personalities who can turn an otherwise ordinary experience into something unexpectedly fun,” said Phoenix New Times writer Michele Laudig in a 2008 review. As La Piccola Cucina's chef, Pappas’s bright personality colors the restaurant, infusing the menu with eclectic influences from French, Greek, and Italian cuisine such as herb-roasted turkey, chicken provençal, and shrimp Santirini. As diners tuck in, Pappas might “pull up a chair and share his life story,” according to Barbara Yost in the Arizona Republic. Pappas's colorful history includes previous careers as an actor, a singer, and a singer who acted like a chef.
Excellent Italian. Very unique, homey, and quaint atmosphere. Authentic cuisine and character that are all too rare in the valley.Kal R., Yelp, 7/18/12
