My husband and I had the late afternoon tour at Taliesin West, and found this restaurant on google. It’s in a strip mall only 10 minutes from the famous Frank Lloyd Wright structure. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. I used...More

"Authentic" is one of the most misused words, but Tesoro truly gives you authentic Italian food: all cooked from scratch, which is why it takes long. But you can enjoy some wine from their extensive list while waiting. The place is small, only 12 tables,...More

It is indeed small, quaint and family owned, so very friendly with food that tastes home made. We enjoyed our bruschetta, which was very garlic-y and good. We each had a different veal for our main course and each of us found it to be...More

Tesoro is a must visit in Scottsdale. The chef is an amazing young woman that does most of the cooking herself. Everything was absolute perfection from the bruschetta appetizer to the delicious Tiramisu we shared for dessert. It is an intimate setting perfect for a...More

It seems that Tesoro has changed hands. The last time we tried it the service was horrid, food mediocre and we have no plans to return. A restaurant is only a location, the people that produce the product are what's... More
