About Us

If you want a real piece of old-school Italy, you come to this place. The paninis and insalatas are an excellent lunch option but the entrees will bring you back to Italy. The grocery store is an Italian cook’s dream: good olive oil, pasta, salumi, and all kinds of hard-to-find imported goods, not to mention an assortment of homemade cheeses, breads, pastries and desserts.

Our Story

Andreoli Italian Grocer, the authentic Italian restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona offering homemade, fresh, and organically created food prepared daily by master chef Giovanni Scorzo. Chef Scorzo, a Calabrian whose love for cooking began at his mother’s side as a young child.

He later trained at Instituto Alberghio di Stati and worked in Florence, Italy before meeting his wife and moving to the United States. Linda and Giovanni have created a true Italian eating experience; the antiques and shelves lined with Italian imports invite you to stay and enjoy.

With dishes directly from the recipe books of his childhood, lovingly prepared fresh daily, the Scorzo’s welcome you to their restaurant where great food is a way of life and truly a family affair. From the delicious handcrafted bread, homemade salami and cheeses, to the tiramisu and espresso-everything is authentically Italian, and lip-smacking delicioso.


“Andreoli is the kind of restaurant that makes Italians a little less homesick. This authentic Italian market not only sells imported goods — they make their own takes on international classics in-house.”

“This is the kind of restaurant that should be in every neighborhood. It was an amazing family atmosphere, guests would come in and hug the staff and chat before ordering. The restaurant was busy, but never seemed busy. In the end the food was the star of the show. Everything we had was a better version than we’ve had anywhere else. If I lived closer to this place I would eat here at least once a week if not more. I really can’t say enough. Thank you for one of the best meals I’ve had in Arizona.”

“The epitome of classics, these plates rarely veer far from traditional preparations with the likes of rigatoni with homemade sausage and peas, potato gnocchi with pesto and penne in a veal red sauce. The food is as cozy as the crowded dining room.”
