Went to dinner last night at this restaurant as our last dinner in the Sedona area. We were able to sit outside on the front patio. There was a guy singing and playing his guitar (he could actually sing). The stars filled the sky above us as we ate. The service was amazing... She made great recommendations and was very... More

This was our second time and after a long trip up the 17 and what a way to unwind and start enjoying our weekend. Very nice patio, chill guitarist, great fresh food and ingredients with generous portions. The variety and amt of seafood in our Ciopino was impressive. Everything we have ordered had been prepared to perfection with great presentation:).... More

We went with another couple and all enjoyed the experience. Our three veal meals were outstanding with the only slightly negative vote being on the eggplant parmesan as only just fine. The outdoor dining area is one of the best we've experienced--the near perfect Sedona weather helps of course. The service was prompt, friendly and courteous. I highly recommend.

The experience and food here was so wonderful, I had dinner two out of three nights during my recent stay in Sedona. I was staying at the Hilton, so Cucina Rustica is conveniently a stone's throw away. My server also informed me that the hotel will transport you to and from there via golf cart - perfect for those who... More

The food was very good but pricey. We had to wait over an hour even though we had made a reservation. It would have been understandable if the wait was only 10 mins but over an hour was not acceptable. Again, food was good overall very pricey. Service slow and not friendly.

Lovely outside dining area with live acoustic guitar music. Had a delicious antipasto appetizer, chicken parm and linguini with lobster sauce. Everything was well-prepared and service was friendly and unhurried. Best meal during our stay in Sedona.

Loved the atmosphere, loved the food. Excellent wine selection, service was great. We had the lasagna and chicken parmasian, the chicken parmasian was the better of the 2 fantastic meals. Glad we also had dessert, so yummy! I could go again tonight! Great place for an anniversary, romantic yet still casual. Beautiful restuarant inside vas out.

The excruciating evening began by the maître d acting like a complete snob. Since we did not have reservations, he made us wait a substantial amount of time even though the restaurant was half empty before making an effort to lead us to a table located in the back of an isolated room. I requested to be seated in the... More

This my be my first 5 Star review. I had the Veal Justino and my wife ordered the Linguine Angelica. Both dishes had one problem-there was not enough. Oh we had a plate full but they were so good. Couple that with a great entertainer service you hope for but seldom get and you have a great experience.

Owner by the same chef/owner as Dahl & Di Luca’s, one may be concerned that to dine at one is to dine at another. This is not the case. Cucina Rustica has a unique look and feel and the food seems to combine elements of Italy with the SW, and does it extremely well. Portions are generous, so feel free... More
