Quartiere opens in former Riazzi’s space in Tempe

Quartiere112717That didn’t take long. It was little more than 100 days ago that neighborhood favorite Riazzi’s Italian Garden announced it was closing after a 72-year run.

Last week, Quartiere had its soft opening in the revamped 5,000-square-foot building on Mill Avenue, halfway between Broadway and Southern, in Tempe.

The new owner is Erick Geryol, who already has three successful East Valley restaurants – Boulders on Broadway and Spokes on Southern in Tempe and Boulders on Southern in Mesa.

Unlike those cycling-and-climbing-themed establishments, however, Quartiere will remain true to its Riazzi’s heritage. In fact, Quartiere means ‘‘neighborhood’’ in Italian.

The reworked menu features salads ($7.99-$9.99), sandwiches ($9.99-$11.49), pasta ($11.99-$18.99), pizzas ($12.99-$15.99), and entrees ($15.99-$17.99).

Hours are 11 a.m.-midnight weekdays and 10 a.m.-midnight Saturday and Sunday.
