Great Spaghetti Restaurant-SE Valley?

Hello. I just moved here and am searching for a good italian spaghetti. (For those of you from Everett, WA, I'm craving Gianni's.) Not interested in big corporate chains. Want a Mom & Pop place that has the best. Will drive to get if I have to! I'm in Gilbert. THANK YOU!

  1. Sounds like RigaTonys on Warner in Tempe might be what you are looking for.

    1. Check out Alessias Ristorante in Mesa- Higley and Brown. Family-owned, great food, amazing homemade sauces and pastas.

        Great. I'll give it a try. Thank your for your recommendation!

        1. I remember Gianni's. Used to go there a lot when I lived up in Everett. Welcome to the East Valley. Go Cougs.

          I would try Gilbert Pizza. Nice family joint.
          VinciTorios is pretty good too. They make the pasta in house.
          I also like La Calabria.

          Stay away from Rigatonys. Not very good Italian food.

            Thanks, StuCazzo. We tried Rigatonys and we weren't real impressed with their pasta dishes but their salad was really good. I would go back for that. Thankfully, I'll be going back to Seattle soon and I will eat Gianni's EVERY night! Go Cougs!
