There was at least one additional bright spot on an otherwise average evening - the wait staff were accommodating, friendly, and attentive. The owner/chef was present and could not have been more gracious, and that makes us happy.  It's all about small business in Scottsdale, and that's why it's unfortunate when we have spotlight a less than desirable experience, but that's what we do.

 

Bon Appetit my fellow foodies!  Corrado's Cucina Italiana - It's not so hot. . .
