Had left several messages trying to book an event, with little communication, if any. We then chose for an Associate birthday dinner, which answered what we needed to know...no true event space, or private dining.

The food is good and it's a nice neighborhood place, but it depends on what you choose if you're going to get a good value. Some items are a little pricey for the offering - the scallop special was $40 for what looked like only U12 or maybe even U20 scallops - about 4 in the serving. Delicious, but not a good value. My Chicken & fettuccine in lemon cream was a better value at $18 a nice portion with plenty of chicken. But there is something for everyone and most budgets.

This was our second time to dine at Pubblico and it was just as good as the first time. The entrees are hardy so come hungry. Big enough to share. The sangria was wonderful!

The menu did not indicate that the item my wife ordered was spicy. She cannot handle spicy food. The management was very accommodating and replaced that item without heavy spice

The item that I ordered was also spicy even though the menu did not indicate such. I enjoy spicy food so that was not a problem. However, the pasta gave me the impression that it was cooked earlier and reheated. It was dry.

This is our third visit to Poblico and the first time that we have not be satisfied with our respective meals.

We dine out at least once a week and generally select from our list of 8 favorite restaurants. We do plan on returning to Publico but with caution.

Good food and good service, but as the restaurant fills up, so does the noise level for us old timers. Solution, get there early :)

The quality of the food was an unexpected delight for the price. It was a 5 star meal at a $$ price. The server (Angel) was great and made you feel like you very comfortable with his family friendly service. I would recommend the Meatball appetizer as a must. A meal or two will be a must for the next visit to Scottsdale.

Extremely innovative Italian food, and the pasta was cooked to perfection, al dente of course. Staff was accommodating to my wife to tailor a dish to her liking since she is somewhat picky. Good selection of appetizers and the quantity of food was plentiful - we ended up taking home some of her afredo pasta and my lobster ravioli. And the wine selection was decent and reasonably priced. We took advantage of happy hour, which was $4.00 glasses of wine and apps. Even though we live in Chandler, we will definitely be back. Finally, shout out to Ramone, our server, who took the time to cater to us despite being crowded.

Fantastic experience! Love this place! My mom and I went to celebrate her birthday, it was both of our first time dining there. We had the grilled octopus (my fav!) appetizer, it was delicious and came with a small side of fennel salad. We enjoyed. We got the cioppino split for the entree and it was the best I have had, tons of shell fish, half a lobster and tender pieces of salmon. So good! I felt the prices were very reasonable and the waiter attentive, he brought a few wine samples for me to try. I also like how you had your choice of seating: booth, table or at the bar. Excellent place, I will be back.

Pubblico has good food and service but the noise level is way too high. It would be nice to be able to have a conversation without shouting and getting a sore throat. We would have loved to sit outside but there are no misters or cover on the patio and the temperature was way too hot to be comfortable.

Decided to try this place for my husband’s birthday. Food was good. Service was good. Atmosphere was good. But nothing makes this place a standout among the other Italian restaurants to choose from in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. I left wishing I had gone to the Sicilian Butcher or Tomaso’s instead.

The chiliean Sea Bass was excellent, the grilled octopus was also excellent and their selection of bar drinks as well as wine was very good. I must also admit that the service was excellent and we were seated immediately upon arriving. All in all this is an excellent Italian restaurant, one that we will be frequenting often.

Very nice restaurant. Service and food was top notch. My steak was undercooked at first but they replaced it right away. It was a little loud so if u want a quiet romantic dinner, this is not that place.

Enjoyed a Friday night dinner at Pubblico. The food was high quality and served hot. The restaurant was lively and potentially a bit too noisy for those with sensitive hearing. Pubblico made for a great date night for this couple!

Food was great. Prices were great. Service not so much. We more than finished our meals and the dirty plates and all our empty glasses were left on there table. He came back to check on us well into the meal by that time we had to ask another server for refills on soda and water. He was just an absent waiter. We will come back again but if service is like that again it will be the last time.

Food was delish, nice ambiance and the staff was attentive and friendly. The only issue was the AC was not cool enough inside, and we were sweating the entire time. Despite the food and service being great, it made for a very uncomfortable dining experience.

We went to Pubblico for the first time on Father's Day 2021. Our experience could not have been better! The food was excellent and well priced. The service was above and beyond, and the staff was so friendly. We were a party of 5 and all will be going back time and again. This will soon be a family favorite.
