Tonight we met our friend Doug MacKenzie for dinner at Italian Restaurant. This is the newest addition from James Beard Award Winner, Chris
Bianco, who has Pizzeria Bianco downtown Phoenix. We heard about Chris’ Pizzeria one evening in New Jersey and then again my many others from all different locations. Naturally, we tried and enjoyed. If tonight was an example, this new restaurant will maintain the same high standards he for which he is famous.
When Chris came in he came over to say, “hello.” The wheat they use for doughs and pastas are from Arizona wheat. Fresh ingredients are a must and you can taste them. Bianco has great backup in the kitchen and his mother, Francesca, comes in about three days of week.
This is not a fancy restaurant. It features clean lines in a comfortable setting. The prices are reasonable from wines to dessert and located in the Town and Country Shopping Center.
The three of us enjoyed our meals and we would recommend it without question. Opening time is 5 p.m. and we were there by 5:30. When leaving at 6:45, it was getting crowded.
