Restaurant of the Week: The Sicilian Butcher

If you’re familiar with celebrity chef Joey Maggiore, then you know that he’s a master at cultivating decadent, enviable dishes. But beyond his cooking capabilities, he’s also a restaurateur alongside his wife, Cristina, and entrepreneur, Flora Tersigni. Together the team has erected some of Arizona’s most sought-after dining experiences—most notably, The Sicilian Butcher.

The hip eatery is centered on a build-your-own meal experience, famous for craft meatballs, made-from-scratch pasta and Sicilian-style charcuterie boards—which are five-feet-long and feature panelli fritters, arancini, cazzilli and artisanal meats and cheeses, among other items. 

Beyond their extensive wine catalog and savory dishes, the franchise is also right next door to their sister restaurant, The Sicilian Baker—which offers a cannoli bar, pastry counter and cafe.

The restaurant is beloved by foodies and architecture connoisseurs alike for its delicious menu offerings and sleek design. The interior alone features hanging chandelier light fixtures comprised of wine bottles, along with textured black walls and vibrant red booths. The ambience maintains a perfect balance of sophistication and old school, Italian charm.

The success of The Sicilian Butcher has allowed the franchise to expand, and now boasts two locations—one at Chandler Viridian Primegate within Chandler Fashion Center, and the other in Phoenix. The West Valley can also anticipate the franchise’s presence to extend to the their corner of the Valley, with a Peoria location set to open in the future.
