Been to both. I would say Phoenician a tad more kid friendly. Can't really go wrong in either one.

Extremely impressed with LaBella, everything was super fresh and delicious. I got the Spinach Mozzarella Salad and the Brushetta, I've tasted the Pizza and Garlic knots everything was phenomenal 10/10. Hard to find a Pizza Shop like this in the Tri State.

If you have kids, we went to a place called Western Destinations... about 30 minutes north of Scottsdale... horseback riding, and full-on western experience
