Authentic Italian dining in South Scottsdale
Fellow Osteria is one of the best restaurants in Scottsdale for authentic Italian cuisine in a contemporary setting. The spacious wood and metal interior and comfortable open patio create an elegant and hip atmosphere.
Start with one of their sixteen unique cocktails. My husband typically looks for an interesting bourbon cocktail and found The Enabler. It includes grilled lemon, maple syrup, hibiscus bitters and sea salt. From their nice selection of Italian wines, I chose the 2016 super Tuscan called Casa del Capo. We arrived in time for their happy hour drink specials, which they offer until 6pm.
Fellow offers a few salads, pizzas and main dishes but it is difficult to pass up the pasta dishes. Their house-made pasta dishes cover the typical Italian choices but with their own appealing tweaks. My spinach and ricotta ravioli were swimming in a brown butter, Parmesan and sage sauce. The sauce was so tasty I stole some of my husband's bread to mop up more. He ordered the squid ink spaghetti, served with shrimp in an arrabiata sauce. Besides the fun we had saying squid ink spaghetti over and over, he was very happy with his choice.
