Marcellino Verzino

Marcellino Ristorante, Scottsdale, AZ

Nestled in Old Town Scottsdale, Marcellino Ristorante brings Arizonans a taste of regional Italian cooking by way of chef and Campania native Marcellino Verzino. For his long overdue return to the Beard House (his last dinner was in 1998!), Verzino will take guests on an edible tour of his childhood region, sharing both family and original recipes.
