Name of dish: Meatball Sliders

S&V’s signature meatball sliders are a happy hour staple. This delicious starter is baked to perfection in marinara sauce and then topped with fresh mozzarella on a brioche bread bun. It is a simple work of art when paired alongside an ice-cold Scottsdale Blonde, whose light acid makes the marinara dance. S&V also recommends trying the Scottsdale Blonde with its salmon salad if you are looking for something a little lighter.
“S&V Urban Italian in Scottsdale opened its doors in 2011 and since has cornered the market for exceptional urban Italian cuisine, thanks to its old family recipes and casual, laid-back vibe. From its diverse wine selection and wood-fired brick oven pizzas to seasonal dishes changed biweekly, S&V offers something for everyone’s palate. Our authentic dishes have a modern twist and pair perfectly with our offerings of local beers and signature wines. We love supporting local whenever possible, and our favorite beer right now is the Scottsdale Blonde from Huss Brewing Company.
