– Volanti Restaurant and Lounge at the Scottsdale Airport –
If you have not been to the Scottsdale Airport area lately, you are missing out on some great dining. Volanti is a charming gastropub located on the second floor of the Scottsdale Airport’s Aviation Business Center and it overlooks the Scottsdale Airport’s runway.
The menu is full of comfort food as well as lighter fare. There are soups and salads, sandwiches, lots of burger options and a few Tex Mex choices. For dinner, there are more entree options as well.
We went for lunch last week. It was a beautiful day and we got a table that had incredible views of the runway and the Mc Dowell Mountains. Since the summer is upon us, there were not a ton of planes parked on the runway, but we did get to watch a few take off.
Typically, we try to eat on the healthy side of things, but the Queso Fundido was calling our names. 😀 When the tray of melted and toasted cheese came out, we eagerly dug in. The tortillas it came with were super fresh and needless to say, it disappeared quickly.
We also split the Roasted Bird panini. It is a roasted turkey and provolone sandwich with arugula and avocado. It also comes with cranberry mayonnaise, but we opted to skip it this time. This is a fantastic sandwich. It is huge, so we were happy we were splitting it. Plus, the fries it came with were tasty – perfectly cooked and seasoned. (This photo is not doing the sandwich justice. If you want to see more photos of Volanti’s offerings, you can visit their website and scroll down.)
If you are looking for event space, look no further. There is up to 4,000 square feet available to host your party or business function.
On a final note, our server, Kayla, was fantastic! She was super friendly and made some great recommendations.
