Patio Monaco

One of the best parts about life in Arizona is the ability to bring the outside in, and vice versa. That's why many of our showcase dining spaces are covered patio areas, and Patio Monaco is no exception. Available for private parties of 25-50 guests and available for open seating during non-reserved times, this is a great venue for celebrating a 25th anniversary, an engagement announcement, or just hosting a dinner party for a special group of friends.
