Near the Pointe Hilton at Squaw Peak, this restaurant was voted one of the Top 100 Restaurants in America by Zagat. This place is a paragon of Italian "abbondanza." A menu sampling includes Tortellini Panna Rosa, meat-stuffed pasta with mushrooms, peas, leeks and ham in a creamy tomato sauce with a splash of brandy. A seafood favorite is Mussels and Calamari Fra Diavolo, fresh mussels and calamari, served over spaghetti. Most entrees are priced under USD20.

I heard about this place online & thought I'd give it try for my 22nd bday. My mom, dad, & boyfriend all loved it as did I! We started off with the calmari & stuffed mushrooms. Both were very delicious. The bread & garlic butter they serve is also yummy. My mom ordered the ravioli w/ricotta & spinach, that was amazing! My dad ordered the veal with artichokes, that was my 1st taste of veal & it was pretty good! But he did opt for a lighter sauce & got the lemon/butter sauce, bad choice! The lemon over-powered the entire thing. My boyfriend ordered (I forgot the name, oops!) linguine pasta w/artichokes, capers, & shrimp covered in marinara. Not my taste but he loved it! Finally, I ordered (I forgot the name again, damn!) angel hair pasta, w/spinach & shrimp covered in a white wine sauce. That was so yummy, def. my fav of all our entrees! For dessert we all split a huge canoli, it wasn't bad but I have a feeling we should of went for the creme brulee! Since the waiter knew it was my bday he sent over a slice of cheesecake w/a candle in it. I thought that was sweet! My mom ate that & said it was delicious! I was disappointed that we never got a complementary, flaming shot @ the end of our meal though. When looking the restaurant up online I read many reviews about the "end of the meal shot" & I was looking forward to it. Maybe its something you have to request? But overall it was a great experience & I will def. be going back when I want some awesome Italian!!
The reason that I didn't give the ambience a 5 is because the place looks like it is a dive from the outside, however, once you are in it is very nicely decorated.
The food was some of the best Italian food that I have had, and while I may not be from Chicago, as one of the reviewers claimed, this obviously does not make a person an expert on good food. The gentlemen had the temerity to compare this place with Buca??? What a joke. I have been to Buca di Beppo and it makes the Olive Garden seem like a 5 star restaurant. The marsala sauce that they make seeems to be based on some kind of Aunt Jemima syrup, and the spaghetti is tasteless.
Tutti Santi's food was excellent in all manners. I had the Linguine Del Marinaio and the seafood was plentiful and delicious. My wife chose the Veal Francese, and, even though she is not normally a big mushroom fan, loved this dish and thought that the mushrooms were both tasty and of a good consistency.
If you want some great Italian food, you must try this restaurant...even if you are from New York or Chicago.
Now I am one big fan of Italian food and they said "they were the best", but to me the weren't. Nothing about their food really stood out to me, you it didn't make me yearning for more. I still will give Tutti Santi a good rating because of their quick service and good hospitality.
we go to Tutti's regularly and just love it. the food is very good, nothing sensational but just good italian food, the service is great - they know us - and the ambience is pretty darned good, not as large and NOISY as many restaurants are these days. prices? hey after a couple recent visits to some of our better steak houses in town i'd say tutti's is the bargain of the century!!
Mama's Ravioli is heaven on a plate; melt-in-your-mouth, cheese stuffed puffs; perfectly seasoned creamy tomato sauce. It takes great restraint not to moan will dining. My sister and I will share 3 orders on our next visit.
Please do not leave Tutti before trying the excellent Tiara Misu. I understand the Chocolate Mousse is also noteworthy.
More than excellent food, in a very relaxed atmosphere, for a reasonable price - perfection!
Let me start by saying I'm from Boston. There are restaurants back east where jackets and ties are required; THAT is elegant dining...everything else is casual. A lot of people in AZ do not really understand the distinction, thus issue flawed reviews. Tutti Santi is elegant, but casual dining. The wait staff is personable, polite, and attentive, but, as any good Italian knows, they are NOT up your butt every 5 seconds because real Italians savor their food AND their dining experience and the staff respects this. This is the place to get excellent food, a warm, inviting atmosphere, and all the time you want to enjoy both. If you want common food fast, go to the Olive Garden (not really because that's barely food). However, if you want an actual 'dining experience' that you can savor and enjoy, Tutti Santi is your place.
I treated my cousin, the skeptic, to lunch at my favorite Italian Restraunt in Phoenix. She was grilling the server and told me she would never order spaghetti at a restraunt (my favorite). When her meal arrived she was in heaven and declared her next trip to Phoenix the plane will be landing at noon and Tutti Santi will be our first stop!
My brother is the wine maker for OPUS One and travels the world. We celebrated Valentines in 2005 with my aunt (suffering with cancer), my mom and other family members for a night never to be forgotten!
Coming from NJ, there is some great Italian food. This is the best place that i have found in Arizona. As close to home as you can get! Service is phenomenal. No rushing here, you can take your time and enjoy your food. Great music and wine.
We finally found a restaunt that captures the culture of Italian dining

My wife and I celabrated our 6th Anniversary and being we are Italian and come from the school that no food is as good as your own mothers, we were sceptical.
From the beginning when we walked through the door we felt as they cared about our dining experience. The staff was caring and catured to our needs.
The food was nothing less than explicit. There was not a time my wife and I did not have something in front of us to eat. We were there for over two in-a-half hours. Everything was, I care to say BETTER then Mom use to make(Mom, please forgive me).
I would recommend this restraunt to anyone who cares to experience the culture and culinary experience of Italy.
The very best of the best!!!!
The food is magnificent - real Italian cooking by real Italians. Handmade ravioli so light it melts in the mouth. The fish or chicken in lemon wine sauce is delicious. Though it has an unassuming appearance outside (you can drive right by, if you don't know it's there), once you get inside, visiting Tutti Santi is like being on vacation.
