Plate of lasagna from restaurant near Cactus Forty-2 in Phoenix, Arizona



Did you know that lasagna is one of the world's oldest pastas?

It's believed that the dish originated in Bologna, Italy, with a traditional recipe featuring the noodles and layers of sauce.

If you would like to enjoy some lasagna, the best restaurants near our Phoenix apartments include:


A father and son duo opened Red Devil. The restaurant's name came easy as it was already on the sign when they bought the building. Through hard work (and a few arguments), the eatery has thrived in the Valley of the Sun since 1960. Guests enjoy the homey atmosphere and fast, attentive service. For dinner, try the stuffed lasagna. It features three layers of noodles, seasoned ground beef, sausage, four cheeses, and marinara sauce.


The True Food Kitchen operates by the philosophy that food should make you feel better. The chefs only use fresh ingredients, and the kale is grown organically at San Miguel Farms. The menu includes both vegan and vegetarian options and was carefully designed to meet everyone's needs. True Food offers a casual setting and makes a fun place to meet friends. Enjoy the lasagna bolognese with the daily market soup.


Since 2014, Adela's has offered a dining experience to remember. It is the site of many first dates and special celebrations. The warm setting features dim lighting, exposed brick, and tables covered with white cloth. In the kitchen, the chefs use fresh ingredients to create flavorful dishes. The beef lasagna ranks as a customer favorite with bolognese sauce and ricotta and mozzarella cheeses. Don't miss the tiramisu for dessert.
