DeFalco's Italian Deli & Eatery – Scottsdale, AZ
When I’m traveling there are so many different places I want to try. And as much as I consult online reviews, nothing truly beats going to a place where the locals rave about the food. DeFalco’s is certainly one of those places. They have been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for their homemade Italian sausage and Centurion calzone and have won many awards and accolades over the years. The food they serve is based on recipes that go back over 100 years and has been passed down from generation to generation. Food doesn’t get more authentic than that.
During my visit, I opted for the Caprese Salad because I wanted something light for lunch. However, their extensive menu includes everything from hot and cold sandwiches, pizza, pastas and, of course, calzones.
The Caprese salad was amazing! I was blown away by its simplicity and deliciousness. It is all about using the best ingredients when it comes to making something anything, especially a salad, something to remember. The homemade mozzarella cheese was the freshest I have ever had. It was soft and creamy, but still had a good bite. The tomatoes added another layer of freshness along with the basil. Since they stock nothing but the best ingredients in their grocery store, the oil and vinegar was top notch and provided a perfect balance of acidity.
Definitely make your way to DeFalco's if you find yourself in and around the Scottsdale area. It's super easy to get to as it's right off Scottsdale Road and you won't be disappointed by anything your order.
