Zuppa Di Pesce
Desserts are homemade and
Italian like no other!
There is no doubt that Alto Cucina is the embodiment of owner and Executive Chef Pat Rodgers. His educational and professional skills have combined to create the experience that is Alto Cucina!
A graduate of the prestigious Scottsdale Culinary Institute, Chef Pat creates Italian food like no other with a hearty mix of traditional dishes and exotic flavors! He describes his imaginative combinations as Italian Fusion – integrating various cooking styles and ingredients from different regions and cultures to produce innovative tastes.
The menu reflects Chef’s whimsical habit of attaching familiar local Italian (or sometimes not) surnames to many items. The Steak Bucceri entrée, for instance, consists of a 10-ounce flat iron sirloin, sausage, sweet peppers, onions, San Marzano tomatoes & asiago served with red clam linguini. Favorite appetizers include: Tonno Carpaccio, cracked black pepper ahi tuna with ponzu vinaigrette, wasabi cream & asparagus; and Gamberoni LaGuardia, pepido & polenta crusted prawns, watercress with smoked chile peach marmalade.
“You have to like what you’re doing, and I do,” said Rodgers. “But I have an excellent and dedicated staff as well.” This is certainly apparent in the splendid creations, quality ingredients and efficient service.
