M ora Italian will welcome you from the moment you walk through its glass doors into its loud, 180-seat, high-ceilinged space. Phoenix may have its Italian restaurants, and 2017 may have given us our first Lou Malnati's and brought Tomaso's to Scottsdale, but none of them match Mora for its culinary creativity, energetic service, and the warmth of its space. This restaurant is the brainchild of James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef Scott Conant, and since its central Phoenix location opened in February, there hasn't been much doubt: This is Phoenix's best restaurant of the year.
