Italian Shared Menu Just $25 for Adults; $9 for Children 12 and Under

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 30, 2009) – The Phoenician is adding style – family-style, that is – to its AAA Four Diamond authentic Italian restaurant, Il Terrazzo, providing guests and visitors with a dinner experience full of taste and value.

Complementing the restaurant’s existing and diverse menu of Italian favorites, the new family-style menu serves 2-10 persons.  The shared bill of fare includes four appetizers – minestrone, buffalo mozzarella, antipasti and salad – followed by pasta.  For the main course, two entrées are chosen from a selection of hanger steak, salmon, chicken and grilled vegetable Parmigiana.  Complimentary soft drinks are also included.  Available seven days a week, family-style dining at Il Terrazzo is just $25 for adults and $9 for children 12 years old and younger.  For reservations, please call (480) 423-2530.  Complimentary valet parking is also available.

“In today’s challenging climate, consumers are looking for the best value without sacrificing quality and service,” said Mark Vinciguerra, managing director of The Phoenician.  “With its additional, new family-style menu, Il Terrazzo delivers on both fronts, providing resort guests and local residents with an exceptional dining experience characteristic of The Phoenician’s Five Diamond standards, yet at a more dynamic price point.”

Located at the base of Camelback Mountain, the 250-acre Phoenician offers two exquisite experiences – a 583-room AAA Five Diamond resort hotel and an exclusive Five Diamond boutique hotel, The Canyon Suites — at one magnificent destination.  The property features elegant, residential-style accommodations, distinctive and tantalizing cuisine across a variety of restaurants, 27 holes of championship golf, 11 tennis courts, The Centre for Well-Being spa complex, an activity program for all ages and interests, numerous boutique shops and a $25 million art collection.  In addition to these offerings, the stylish 60-room Canyon Suites provides more intimate surroundings and enhanced services, creating an atmosphere of uncompromising comfort.  Both The Phoenician and The Canyon Suites are owned and operated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., as part of The Luxury Collection.
