We decided on Cucina Rustica for our last dinner in Sedona and were glad we did. It felt like we were in Tuscany, the windows and brick work were great. We had a nice quiet table and enjoyed everything, even though we ate way too much. The olive oil and peblano peppers had quite a kick to it. I think... More

Our favorite restaurant in Sedona (Village of Oak Creek). Romantic atomosphere, great food and service and we love Bill Barns who plays relaxing guitar music while you enjoy your excellent meal. This is the place where we take our out of town guests for a dinner delight. Lisa Dahl is Sedona's best gourmet chef! Lanna & Amadeus Larew

We went here on the advice of our hotel's proprietor, since we had just gotten to town. It was walking distance from the hotel, too, which was good as we had been in the car all day. We were assured that casual clothes (jeans and fleece) would be acceptable. On walking in - on a Monday night this is -... More

Excellent food. Good attentive staff. Atmosphere is charmingly quaint. The wait was about 45 minutes on a Saturday night. Worth a visit. Share a dish.

The food here is fabulous. The appetizer special was a large serving of burrata with roasted red peppers, olives and greens drizzled with balsamic vinegar. We shared an entree as they are very generous portions. The flour less chocolate cake was to die for! Conscientious waitstaff and beautiful decor. Worth the trip.

We enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner (2014) at Cucina Rustica. The restaurant was highly recommended on the TripAdvisor Sedona/Grand Canyon forum, and the recommendation was right on! We enjoyed dinner as a family (2 adults, 3 kids). The restaurant was so nice when we called, rather late, for reservations suggesting their alternate location (Dahl & DiLuca) would be closer to our hotel.... More

Loved this place - service was impeccable - staff very friendly - would definitely recommend. We celebrated here after getting married in Sedona and it was the perfect choice. Would have eaten here every night if the budget (and new husband) had allowed!!

While vacationing in Sedona we chose to have our first Thanksgiving away from our family at Cucina Rustica. We had made reservations a few weeks ahead of time and got the time we wanted. You can choose from the traditional Thanksgiving meal or from a few select menu items. The staff said each year the traditional meal may change due... More

Cucina Rustica is part of a family of restaurants in Sedona that are superbly operated by the same chef/entrepreneur (see Piza Lisa, also excellent). This is a lovely location in the Village of Oak Creek about 10 minutes from Sedona center, full of character both inside and out. Patiently wait for your table cause the food is worth it. Started...
