A piece of Italy has arrived in the heart of Scottdale, with Fratelli La Bufala proudly making the Arizona debut of its second US location, now open at The Grove near Hayden Road and McCormick Parkway in Scottsdale. Fratelli La Bufala, hailing from Southern Italy in Campania, learned the art of producing their most delicious DOP Mozzarella di Bufala from their Father and have been in business since 2003, creating a brand, acclaimed and represented, with over 70 restaurant
locations globally. Locations include Naples, Milan, Dubai, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, and London, with their first US location in Miami, Florida. This recently introduced location in Scottsdale, Arizona expands the initial Fratelli La Bufala concept into a first-class Italian Ristorante e Pizzeria, complete with a full dining room, hand-crafted cocktail bar, and patio.
The Fratelli La Bufala menu, based on the authenticity of products and traditional Neapolitan cuisine, has been designed with high-quality ingredients imported daily from Italy, such as water buffalo meat and mozzarella, with a strong accent on the Neapolitan tradition and authentic Neapolitan pizza.
“With Scottsdale being an epicenter for massive culinary growth, it was such a natural choice for us to bring both the traditions and experiences of Naples to our customers locally in Arizona to enjoy and visitors alike, not just a meal,” says Fabio Sodano of Fratelli La Bufala Scottsdale. “Our Values are always with us” and we never forget our origins first and foremost and that we are pizza makers in this world, with the intention of creating the best experiences for our guests and a warm, easy-going atmosphere and delicious food.”
The 4,200 square foot, vibrant restaurant welcomes Campania tradition throughout this inspired new location that seats 160, giving visibility to guests of the signature wood-burning oven where they can watch their pizzas being masterfully prepared. The restaurant’s center also features a mozzarella high table, similar to that of a traditional Italian deli, combined with a unique and beautiful style.
Fratelli La Bufala invites guests to feel at home with delicious main menu favorites including Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, homemade ricotta gnocchi, Grass Fed Angus Beef “Arizona Burger,” Parmigiana in Carrozza, deep fried eggplant parmigiana ball served with tomato sauce, and fresh basil, Cannoli, crispy wafers filled with ricotta cheese and dark chocolate and pistachio and almonds and Croccantino Caprese, couscous deep fried fior di latte mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and EVOO served on a bed of arugula. The perfect appetizer to share is the Il Tagliere, which includes Chef’s selection of imported cold meat and cheese, served with fig jam, olives, giardiniera, and homemade pizza bread cooked in the wood oven.
Guests can enjoy lunch, happy hour, and dinner Monday – Sunday, from 11 am – 9 pm with vegetarian, gluten-free, and kids’ pizza and pasta menu options also available. Happy hour is available at the bar only, Monday – Friday, from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm, and Sunday from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, with delicious house red and white wines, the famous Fratelli La Bufala Espresso Martini and Luna Rossa, plus bites like family-inspired mini pizza calzone, calamari fritti, and mini burgers.
