This was probably one of the best Italian restaurants we've ever eaten at. The service, food and wine were exceptional. I had a fish soup which was a "special" on the menu. My wife had lobster and scallops in a vodka sauce. We paired this with a Spanish Tempranillo wine. Just marvelous!

It is easy to access plenty of parking. The food is excellent. You have a bit of entertainment with a person playing guitar in the background

The veal saltimboca was very tasty and tiny. Yes we are tourist, but have some respect. Very high prices also.

This is a poor review of what is, by most accounts, a good restaurant. We ate there last week while on vacation. My wife is gluten-free and that made it particularly attractive. She had intended to order some gluten-free pasta -- a real treat for folks with celiac -- but when she asked the waiter to confirm the restaurant used... More

Lisa Dahl, a chef, restauranteur and cookbook author seems to have the magic touch! Her food is fresh, expertly prepared, her staff professional and attentive. We’ve enjoyed Dahl and DeLuca several times but this was the first trip to Cucina Rustica. However, it won’t be the last! My mouth still salivates as I remember the affinto appetizer. Unique, delicious. Although... More

What a fantastic place, it was great eating at the bar! as a local gentleman put it...the best seat in the house! Lovely atmosphere, fantastic food, Peroni on tap and in bottles. A great selection of wines too! Fantastic staff and service. We can't wait to go back tonight, it was that good!

We had a great week in scenic Sedona. Terrific food in several restaurants and this was no exception. We rushed back from a day trip with no dining reservation. We couldn't remember the restaurant name but wanted to eat at this highly rated location. How lucky to arrive and get one of the last two-tops in their charming outdoor area...with... More

Busy restaurant. Indoor and outdoor seating. The bread served with jalapeño olive oil was tasty. Ordered the exotica salad which would have been good had the greens not been limp. The veal Justino was tender and nicely sauced.

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
