La Torretta Ristorante
Visitors to La Torretta Ristorante are immediately confronted with visions of Old World Italy. Classical imagery permeates every inch, from a large mural depicting a lounging woman under the watch of joyful putti, to a stained-glass reproduction of Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam. The patio offers more naturalistic views of the McDowell Mountains, as well as nightly glimpses of the maintenance crew that flips the power-on switch for each sunset. The restaurant's bill of fare also appeals to traditionalists. House specialties include the New Zealand rack of lamb, served with roasted potatoes, tomatoes, and fresh mint jelly, as well as the pollo farcitio formaggio quattro—a boneless chicken breast that's stuffed with prosciutto, mascarpone, fontina, and gruyere and then doused in a marsala-mushroom demi-glaze. Grape sippers can pore over an expansive wine list, searching for the American or Italian bottle that includes the tastiest miniature ship.
