It was a busy place and we ended up eating in the bar. So first piece of advice is to go early! It was worth it as the food and service was amazing. I'm not usually thrilled with Italian food but this was an exception. We had the calamari which was perfectly cooked and brought quickly to be served with... More

Our favorite restaurant in Sedona. We eat there both evening we were in Sedona on this trip. Our server Amy was wonderful - we have food allergies and she helped with selecting items that could be modified to be dairy free. The restaurant offers gluten free pasta. Over the years we have tried all the 'house specialties' and they are... More

Cucina Rustica is the best restaurant in the Village of Oak Creek, but only because there isn't much competition. Sit at the bar, especially during happy hour, and you'll find the bartenders helpful, attentive and friendly and will promptly serve your dinner in place. Not so for some of the regular servers. We ate there regularly for years and the... More

I have family in Sedona who are devotees of Chef Lisa Dahl's 3 restaurants. We sat at the bar in spite of just missing the (fabulous!) happy hour, and found the bartenders engaging and attentive even though it got very busy. The decor is best appreciated as evening sets in although the patio is charming. We started with the affinato... More

Intake was a little rough, with a management-type gentleman berating a hostess for misbooking some party due in a few weeks hence. The decor was quite nice, and our server was quite affable, and made me a nice virgin prickly pear margarita, but he came off just a little too polished, maybe. The food was pretty good. I had the...

Dinner with friends was so much fun. We shared a cheese appetizer and great wine from Alexander Valley. I had a veal and sea scallops entrée which was delicious. Our waiter was fun and knowledgeable. He was so helpful in quickly going over the menu. This is one of the few restaurants in Sedona that takes reservations. One would be... More

a nice find in West Sedona. I can only comment on the service, which was great and the pasta which was very tasty & home made. A little pricey, but worth it! Nice wine list (I had a lovely super tuscan) all 6 of us including 3 kids had a great meal and everyone enjoyed it. If I find myself... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at Poco Diablo Resort. The restaurant has an outdoor seating area in a front courtyard. As promised, our party of four was quickly seated is this area. A musician, seated in the courtyard, was playing classical guitar when we arrived and continued to play through most of the night. The music was perfect.... More

One of three restaurants in Sedona to take reservations. The fare is classic Italian. Great atmosphere and better waitstaff. They know their wine as well. Outside dining available. Entrees $25 to $35.
