Scottsdale Welcomes The Italiano This Summer

The Maggiore Group is slated to open its sixth concept this summer in Scottsdale: The Italiano. The Italiano, lead by Chef Joey Maggiore, will boast casual elegance and authentic Italian dishes.

With Valley favorites like Hash Kitchen, The Sicilian Butcher and The Mexicano on its roster, The Maggiore Group is well-known for its one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. The Italiano promises to transport guests to the very heart of culinary tradition in Italy with its flavors of “old-school red sauce Italian cuisine”–with a Chef Maggiore touch, of course. The new Scottsdale restaurant continues The Maggiore Group’s tradition of interactive tableside experiences. Options will include an antipasto cart where guests can curate their own plate with dozens of different ingredients, as well as a Limoncello cocktail cart and a Zabaione dessert cart.

“This is going to be our best concept yet! We’re drawing inspiration from every corner of Italy to blend age-old traditions with innovative approaches,” says Chef Maggiore, chef and co-founder of The Maggiore Group and Chef Joey Concepts, in a press release. “We can’t wait for you to experience our family’s heritage in a new and familiar way.” 

The new 7,543-sq.-ft. restaurant will greet its guests with a charming entry, with limestone and olive trees throughout, as well as a beautiful patio. The Italiano will elevate the dining experience with the addition of a private dining room with an immersive art installation that pays homage to Chef Maggiore’s late father’s iconic restaurant, Tomaso’s. Additional design elements include a stunning sky-painted ceiling.
