Modern Italian at Fat Ox

Named after Italy’s famed buo grasso cattle and the Piedmont festival where the champion Fat Ox is chosen, Chef Matt Carter’s newest offering is a blend of sleek urban design and cattle country rustic. At Fat Ox on Scottsdale Road near Lincoln, he serves up a modern take on regional Italian classics, with over a dozen pastas made fresh in house daily.


The modern interior is a blend of luxurious leather, rich wood paneling and cool marble. We sampled such outstanding offerings as rigatoni lamb verde, linguine with clams, polenta, Hokkaido scallops, ox-brined jidoro chicken and grilled rib eye with peppers and onions. Top it off with Frangelico tiramisu and meyer lemon tart and you’ve got the perfect meal. Bravo!

You’ll find Fat Ox at 6316 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Give them a ring at 480.307.6900.
