Arrivederci Trattoria (4221 E. Chandler Blvd., [480] 759-9292). Highly recommended Italian specialties include the cannelloni de carne (beef and veal stuffed pasta tubes with melted cheese and tomato cream sauce), chocomisu and cannoli. Oh, and don't be surprised if the staff greets you with a double-cheek kiss. Additional location in Scottsdale. $

Hillside Spot (4740 E. Warner Road, [480] 705-7768). Welcome addition to the Ahwatukee area when it opened in 2009 and locals have been packing in ever since. Recipes feature locally grown produce, and attention is on the basics, which are done right. Breakfast items are served until 4 p.m. daily and include the "El Gallo" Torta, a scrambled egg sandwich with chorizo, tomato and avocado. $

The Melting Pot (3626 E. Ray Road [480] 704-9206. Do you fondue? You should - fondue is fun again. The Melting Pot's subdued lighting and booth seating make for a cozy-as-you-desire, unhurried dining experience. And as for the menu, patrons can delight in dipping everything from fruit to cheese to meat. Additional location in north Scottsdale. $$

Nello's (4710 E. Warner Road, [480] 893-8930). If deep-dish Chicago-style pizza is what you crave, Nello's pizzerias are where to go. The salads are scrumptious as well, especially if they're topped with the thick house dressing. Additional locations in Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale. $-$

Ra Sushi Bar Restaurant (4921 E. Ray Road, [480] 940-1111). From spicy tuna rolls to lobster shrimp rolls, Ra offers dozens of sushi selections. Also worth a try are the apple teriyaki salmon and the ginger cilantro ahi tuna - along with a sake bomber or two, of course. Additional locations in Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe. $
