An "autentico ristorante italiano," and perfect for that evening out. That Italian Place on 40th offers that " Sunday dinner at home" seven nights a week, a trait that earned it the title of "Best Place to Have Dinner" for 2008 in Ahwatukee Foothills.
Owner Larry Hughes and "Chef Mary Ann" have brought a little bit of Brooklyn to Ahwatukee with their takes on traditional Italian favorites.
