Locally Sourced Foods, Arizona’s Finest Ingredients.
Many cities are known for their local foods like Philly cheesesteaks, New York cheesecake, beignets in Nawlins or coffee in Seattle. We’re a local gem amongst Tempe restaurants, found right on Tempe’s famous Mill Ave. Foodies from all over the Valley of the Sun flock to Tempe for our outstanding and award-winning menu featuring local food and local produce with a distinctly Mediterranean twist!
We incorporate locally sourced foods into our famous menu offerings whenever possible. It’s good for the community and our patrons love it too. Join us to taste the local freshness!
Queen Creek Olives
One of our most popular plates is a generous portion of warm Queen Creek Olives and artisan toast. A delightful accompaniment to a glass of wine or house-made sangria — these local lovelies are grown at the base of the San Tan Mountains in nearby Queen Creek. Arizona’s dry, warm climate is ideal for olive farming and the Queen Creek Olives add a distinctly Mediterranean note to any diner’s dinner.
Since 1955 Phoenicians have been enjoying Schreiner’s Fine Sausage and this hometown hit punctuates our pizzas like nobody’s business! Made from traditional family recipes Schreiners Sausage uses only the finest ingredients; all meat is hand-boned, ground and stuffed in natural casings for that unparalleled authentic flavor. Our savory Sicily pizza features Schreiners “Sicilian” sausage, sundried tomatoes, parmesan & goat cheese, shallots, XVO and tasty herbs.
Villa Dolce Gelato & Sorbet
Our decadent desserts feature Villa Dolce Gelato, a family owned & operated artisan gelato company making batches using authentic Italian gelato equipment and fresh, Italian flavorings of the highest quality. You’ll taste the difference in every succulent spoonful whether it’s a plump dollop plopped on top of your favorite made-to-order cookie or brownie (served up in a hot cast-iron skillet), or simply a fantastic flight of flavors ranging from banana dolce to coffee chocolate chip to dark chocolate, fresh mint chip vanilla bean or raspberry sorbet.
We source from local farms across the Arizona countryside whenever possible. A few examples of herbs and produce include Paradise Valley’s very own Abby Lee Farms and their outstanding heirloom tomatoes, as well as McClendon’s Select incomparable basil, straight from Peoria, AZ. You’ll know you’re eating fresh with every bite and can taste the difference that sourcng local produce makes. Your tongue will tell you you’re in the right place and your palate will thank you to boot!
We’re a top pick among Tempe restaurants for foodies and our patrons love the freshness and flavor that local food brings to the table. For more tasty tidbits peruse our menu or stop n today!
