Dara Smith

Central Phoenix Location (Front of the House)

Whether it’s opening in the morning or closing it down at night, Dara’s attention to detail is unparalleled. She keeps the condiments full and the gum off the bottoms of the tables (…who does that, by the way?) Of course, that attention to detail goes beyond keeping the joint tidy; when Dara is your server everything is just taken care of. She’s on-point, humble, and always sweet AND she’s Employee of the Month!

Way to go Dara!

Anthony Huerta

Central Phoenix Location (Heart of the House)

Our Employee of the Month for the HOH is Anthony Huerta. Anthony started off as a dishwasher and quickly moved into the kitchen. He has just about mastered every station in the kitchen. He can create the most beautiful salads, sauté a pasta to perfection, roll dough for pizzas, top all pizzas to Spinato’s specs and then pull and cut piping hot pizzas from the oven to serve to our guests. Anthony is very humble, dependable and has one of the most amazing attitudes that is infectious throughout the kitchen and the restaurant. We can’t thank him enough for all his hard work and dedication he has brought to our family.

 Thanks Anthony and Congrats!

Anthony Hill

Scottsdale Location

North Scottsdale wants to give Anthony a big round of applause for a second shot at Employee of the Month for all the hard work he does. We can’t tell if he is man or machine sometimes with how quick he handles the kitchen in only the short six months’ time, enhancing the lives of each family member he works with. Whether we ask for some pizzas or a little help with the dishes, there is always a smile, ear to ear, from him. And when he isn’t tearing it up in the kitchen he is back at home with his newborn son enjoying fatherhood to the fullest.

Thanks for being you Anthony. 

Abby Pack

Ahwatukee Location (Front of the House)

We’re happy to announce Abby Pack as our FOH Employee of the month! Abby has been with us since October of 2016 and has become one of our star hostesses.  Abby is kind to everyone she interacts with and you’ll always find her hard at work. She is a little soft spoken but where she lacks in volume, she makes up for in great work taking charge of the host stand and always great with our guests. When Abby is not at work or school it might be safe to say she will be at target, which she likes to call her “happy place”. It won’t be long before you might see her cashing you out for pickups or serving you table-side.

Thank you for all you do Abby!

Minerva Zentero

Seth Jastrab is January’s Employee of the Month! Seth has only been with the company for a short time but in that time has shown that he’s capable of anything!! He started in the HOH as a prep cook in order to work up to bar tending. He is now one of our top servers. His funny and charismatic personality makes for one of the finest Spinato’s Experience’s that we have to offer. On his days off he loves to take out the motorcycle to relieve some stress or just relax at home and play video games.

Thank you for being amazing Seth!!
