Looking for a truly authentic Italian restaurant (Scottsdale, AZ)

I live part of the year in Italy and am looking for a truly Italian restaurant in Scottsdale. I'm hoping to find a restaurant owned and managed by a real Italian who has not americanized his cuisine. I tried Sassi and it was terrible beyond description. Gianfranco is Italian and while the food is good, he has americanized it too much. I would say the same for Alberto in Cave Creek. The closest I have found is Trattoria Veneto that thankfully has remained faithful to the real tradition of Italian cooking. Do any of you Italians living in the Scottsdale-Phoenix area have other suggestions.
