Mare Blu Ristorante, the new restaurant located at the Reef

FYI: Here is a review from Gretchen of the new restaurant where the Reef used to be. This is great because it is so close to Cholla and open 7 days a week. We will be sure to dine there soon…

Good morning, Nancy! I thought you might want to share this, since we Chollans are enthusiastic diners…

Last night Dawn & Winston Matthews and I had the PLEASURE of dining at Mare Blu Ristorante, the new restaurant located at the Reef. Ohmygoodness, it was delicious! The menu is Italian and continental, and the chef Luca Appendino, from Italy via the restaurant Tutti Santi in Scottsdale, really knows what he is doing. Each of us had a different entree, and all were wonderful, then we shared a tiramisu for dessert; it was divine!

Mare Blu is open for dinner 7 days weekly starting at 5. They have a wine list, plus a full bar, and prices are very reasonable. Owner Julio Valenzuela has the staff and the capacity to accomodate large groups…would be a great place for the Cholla crowd to dine as a group. They are new, and can use our support…I really want to see them succeed, plus it’s really nice to have a good option to Mexican food and flounder without driving to town.

Oh, I nearly forgot…Mare Blu also serves a breakfast buffet for $9 from 7 a.m. to noon on Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon. I have not tried that yet, but if it’s half as good as dinner, it will be the best breakfast buffet in town.

Thanks for spreading the word!
