- Scottsdale Dining at Tomaso's When in Rome -

North Scottsdale has a new dining option that comes with a long history in the Valley. Tomaso's, the Camelback institution for high-end Italian dining that has been in operation since 1977, now has a sister restaurant further north.

Located on Scottsdale Road, just north of Pinnacle Peak, Tomaso's When in Rome opened over the summer. The space itself is open and is decorated with scenes of Rome and columns throughout. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

We started with an order of the Frittura di Calamari (Fried Calamari), which was excellent and we really enjoyed the flavorful accompanying red sauce.

For entrees, we opted for pasta and fish. The first pasta was a Linguine con Vongole, which was a generous serving of linguine with steamed clams in the shell. The other pasta was a traditional Fettucini alls Carbonara. It was another generous serving and was delicious.

The final entrée we ordered was Salmon with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce. The pan seared salmon paired beautifully with the lemony sauce. It was served with vegetables and a tasty potato cake.

The wine list was varied and had lots of excellent options at all price points.

There were plenty more items on the menu that we wanted to try and plan to do so over our next few visits.

And, if you are looking for something lighter, Tomaso's When in Rome offers an All Day Happy Hour at the bar. In addition to $7 per glass wine specials and discounted cocktails and beers, there is also a great bar menu offering things like Bruschetta, a few types of pasta, meatballs and more.
