The Maggiore Group is launching its newest concept, The Italian Daughter Cucina + Cocktails, spearheaded by esteemed restaurateur, Melissa Maggiore. The newly opened restaurant and piano bar concept has replaced Tomaso’s Italian Kitchen in North Scottsdale and remains as a dedication to the legacy of her father, the late Tomaso Maggiore.

“The Italian Daughter is a restaurant concept that I believe my father would have been really excited to see,” founder Melissa Maggiore says. “I want people to experience the joys of our authentic Italian cuisine in an atmosphere full of music and energy. We are bringing Italian flare to Scottsdale along with the fun of live music and great food.”


The Italian Daughter features live piano music by local musicians nightly—expect familiar songs by Billy Joel and Frank Sinatra, the classics, and top hits throughout the decades for dine-in entertainment. The new age meets classic Italian decor in the restaurant’s quaint and cozy atmosphere.


In continuation of The Maggiore Group’s dedication to bringing Italy’s world-renowned cuisine to Arizona, The Italian Daughter will spotlight some of the best dishes of the family’s home country. The restaurant’s menu is made from scratch and offers more variety in The Maggiore Group’s already-expansive selection of Italian entrees, elevated Italian cuisine featuring handcrafted pastas, craft charcuterie boards, Neapolitan pizzas, and desserts from the group’s other Italian concepts—Tomaso’s, The Sicilian Butcher and The Sicilian Baker. The cocktail menu features Italian-inspired craft cocktails, gelato martinis as well as a curated selection of wines and beers. Takeout options are available, including to-go family meal packs, a-la-carte menu items and delivery. COVID-19 safety measures are in place as well.


The restaurant is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 3 to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 3 to 11 p.m. Starting April 24, they will serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
