Juliette Villagomez

Tempe proudly proclaims Ana better known around here as Juliette as our Employee of the Month. Juliette has been with us a little over a year now. You can find her working pretty much every Job in the Front of House from seating tables to helping with Togo orders and even Serving tables now! She never comes to work without a smile!! When Juliette is not at work she enjoys taking acting classes in her free time. If you have the pleasure to run into her please let her know how much we appreciate her as she is a true example of the Spinato’s Experience!!

Thank you, Juliette, for your commitment to excellence!!

Andrew Hampton

North Phoenix Location

Spinato’s Bell rd. selects Andrew Hampton as our employee of the month. Andrew is the epitome of efficiency. He always has a great attitude and is extremely devoted to supporting his fellow family members. He seriously takes team work to a whole ‘nother level. Outside of work he is a fierce martial arts competitor and takes his training very seriously. He brings that enthusiasm to work every day to deliver fantastic pizzas on the cleanest dishes for all our guests.

Thank you, Andrew, for everything you do!


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

Ahwatukee Location (Heart of the House)

Minerva has been part of our family for almost 5 years now.  She is our salad and sandwich prep cook.  She is always on top of her game, holding down her station, on her own, every morning.  Minerva likes perfection and takes pride in her work.  So, if you get one of our salads or sandwiches you’ll know this awesome person has made it all possible.

Thank you, Minerva, for enhancing the lives of our guests.
