10. Sassi

Resting at the base of Pinnacle Peak in North Scottsdale, Sassi's architecture surrounds diners with the feeling of being in an old villa in Southern Italy. Chef Christopher Nicosia strives to create an unforgettable dining experience in his beautiful restaurant with fresh, local ingredients. Sassi's is also a wine lovers dream, with a staggering list of more than 200 Italian wines. Eating here is an experience in immersion; the deliciously authentic food and surroundings make it difficult to remember that this restaurant is in Arizona rather than classic Italy.
