Upscale Italian Dining
This is not your mainstream, strip mall Italian restaurant. As proof, this restaurant serves Carpaccio Di Bue, a coveted Italian dish that includes thin slices of raw filet mignon with tomato basil, capers, olive oil and parmigiano. It’s a dish that’s hard to get right, so savor it at Tutti Santi.
Carpaccio is just one of the dishes offered on the antipasti freddi (cold appetizers) menu. Keep it simple with Prosciutto Crudo di Parma, thinly sliced prosciutto served with shaved parmigiano reggiano, or a classic shrimp cocktail. Antipasti caldi (hot appetizers) include two kinds of calamari (in a sauce or fried), and Insalata di Mare, a warm seafood salad with marinated mussels, calamari, shrimp and diced potatoes in olive oil and lemon juice.
The main course menu offers all kinds of meats and pastas: veal medallions pan seared in a Port wine served with oven baked scalloped potatoes and seasonal vegetables; mussels and calamari sautéed in spicy tomato sauce served on a bed of spaghetti; and pasta with bolognese meat sauce and parmigiano.
What Italian meal would be complete without wine? Tutti Santi has you covered. The wine list is extensive.
It’s hard to say this restaurant offers “the classics” when those classics are often defined by mainstream, Americanized restaurants. This is the real deal: authentic, fresh Italian food.
Happy hour is Monday through Thursday between 4:30 and 6 p.m. Come on out and experience Italian hospitality at Tutti Santi in Scottsdale.
