Comments & Reviews
Food & Life Magazine Aug/Sept Candy Lesher- "If your looking for a delightful, family run bistro, look no further then Cafe' Forte'. These N.Y. natives dish up gracious service along with fabulous fare. Horseradish crusted salmon was sooo good as was the pecan encrusted chicken. The desserts are prepared on premises, the best apple pie I've had in years."
Scottsdale Life Dec. Restaurant Review- Ellen Jeffords- "Cafe Forte has a definite European feel...I really like Cafe Forte's balance between upscale and everyday eatery."
To Foders Arizona, From Denis & Anette Poole United Kingdom, June - "When preparing the next edition of Foders- please include a little gem of a cafe in the heart of downtown Scottsdale. The daily soup specials are excellent, as is the salmon platter & the tuna melt. The food is wonderful and the ambience makes this place very special. The next time were in Scottsdale, Cafe' Forte' is where we'll be heading first."
Arizona Foothills- "Visit this inviting eatery located on Scottsdale's gallery row. The lunch menu offers fresh homemade soups and incredible entree salads and sandwiches. The dinner menu offers some new twists on traditional favorites, such as caramelize cafe' meatloaf or pecan encrusted chicken. Save room for the homemade desserts."
