Amid the bright, contemporary decor and open-air seating of Grazie’s two locations, the restaurant’s chefs roll out fresh, flavorful pizza dough and compile classic Italian specialties. Their menu of pastas and gourmet pizzas—which are crowned with toppings such as prosciutto, capers, and ricotta—complement the tannins of an expansive, all-Italian wine list. The pizzeria doubles as an off-sale wine shop, with each bottle curated by wise wine experts who tirelessly sniff out rare imports with the enthusiasm of grape-fixated bloodhounds. When Grazie's hospitable staffers aren't serving lunch or dinner, students from regularly scheduled Italian-language classes flood the restaurant space with the delicate syllables of useful phrases such as “What’s your name?” and "Are you going to finish that lasagna?"

Before there was Vito's Pizza and Italian Ristorante, there was Vito Carrieri, rocking gently on a boat to the United States from his home in Ripacandida, Italy. After casting anchor in Chicago—where he feasted on the city's pizza, helped get it elected mayor, and met his wife JoAnne—he packed his bags and family recipes, moved west with JoAnne and his kids, and opened Vito's Pizza and Italian Ristorante in 1986. Eschewing the Windy City’s deep-dish roots, the eatery's specialty taps into Chicago's less heralded thin-crust traditions, with dough dusted with imported Italian flour and topped with cheeses from Italy and Wisconsin. Those family recipes from Vito's bags are also put to good use, with Northern and Southern Italian specialties made with house-crafted marinara sauce and italian sausage.

The Gelato Spot’s frozen-dairy hotshots merge ingredients imported from Torino, Italy, and churn a bevy of creamy gelati and sorbets daily. The gelateria’s small tongue-chilling batches have earned the shop the title of Best Frozen-Yogurt/Ice Cream Spot in AZ Central's 2011 readers’ poll, which praises the eatery’s extravagant displays and cheerful staff. Though The Gelato Spot specializes in traditional Italian flavors, such as stracciatella and amarena, they also craft American renditions such as Snickers, new york cheesecake, and salted caramel. As diners shovel in glacial delights on The Gelato Spot's heated and misted patio, they can also cruise the web with complimentary WiFi.

Donili Pizza Kitchen backs up a repertoire of hand-tossed and globally themed pizzas with rustic Italian fare crafted with organic produce from the Scottsdale farmers' market. Wraparound booths and tables draped in red support buffalo wings in four different sauces, calzones, and classic pasta dishes. The menu divides pizza offerings into two sections—traditional rounds are slathered with one of a dozen sauces, from wasabi to basil oil, and piled with a selection of more than 25 toppings. The international pizza, like the U.N.'s recreational boxing league, features two global representatives each day, such as the China pizza with an orange glaze sauce beneath chicken or beef, stir-fried vegetables, and rice. An international collection of wines as well as draft and bottled beers wet patrons' whistles so they may better call party fouls.

Accomplished poker player Kevin O'Donnell dreamed up K O'Donnell's American Bar & Grill, where he invites guests to enjoy a congenial atmosphere complete with 32 HD televisions. A multi-fireplace patio boasts cigar- and dog-friendliness, like a mailman-scented humidor. Classic foods such as sliders, burgers, and pizzas meet up with a list of draughts, bottled beer, and wines. At different times during the month, there are events such as ladies’ night, Mutt Madness—when the patio is dog friendly—and poker nights. And at the end of the night, patrons can make use of a complimentary shuttle bus.
