Description: Dahl & Di Luca Ristorante Italiano is fine dining with award winning Italian specialties. Lisa's has many signature dishes including vegetarian. You won't want to miss the more traditional dishes like Veal Piccata sauteed in a sublime lemon caper sauce and an Eggplant Parmigiana that has turned non-eggplant lovers into this being their favorite dish. We honor a "Farm to Table" practice. Although we pride ourselves in using Organic products we are also devoted to the health and safety of our patrons. This is why we only use Local Organic Growers. We think you'll agree - the flavors are vibrant and delicious.

“Phenomenal Ambiance & Savory Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Our group of four pushed back reservations from 5:30pm to 6:15pm and then to 8:15pm and are truly glad we did as this was a top-tier Italian restaurant. Even though we arrived 10+ minutes early, we were seated almost immediately.

The wait staff was cordial and prompt on all aspects of service from the ordering of drinks, salads the main course as well as dessert. The warm, fresh bread that was also placed at the table along with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar added to the experience.

What makes the restaurant even more unique is that it is not in a large building, but rather in a smaller, quaint environment that makes this more of a cozy dinner setting. The lighting was also remarkable as it did not overwhelm the room making the dinner even more memorable. Lastly, the music did not overwhelm the room or conversation as the ownership and management understand that the music is intended to complement the environment, not dominate it.

Dahl & Diluca is definitely on our list to go back to when we are in Sedona agian. Special thanks to the management team, entire wait staff and ownership on a special dining experience.

“Excellent Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We went twice in a few days to this restaurant as we believed it was one of the best and most romantic in Sedona. The food is very good and met with owner who writes very well known recipe books in the US. The atmosphere is very cosy, the service is good and prices correct. As in every Italian restaurant, the menu was orientated toward Pasta, polenta, veal in all its possible way of cooking. The desserts were excellent. Everything perfect.

“Get the Lasagna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We share our meals when eating out in order to try more dishes. My husband had Lisa's Lasagna and it was so good! Even though my lemon chicken was very tender, flavorful, and good, I was sorry I missed out on a full course of the Lasagna. Any one in our group of about 20 who had it just raved!
Service was excellent. They took care of needs before you needed them. They were very attentive.
As a large group, we had two tables next to each other, within the general seating. They did not appear to have a private room.
For dessert we had tiramisu and small cannoli. Both were very good.
Appetizer of bruschetta and calamari. The Calamari was also excellent, perfectly cooked, not chewy or tough.

“great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I chose to go to this restaurant because they allow dogs on their patio.

We went in November (when it is a bit chilly outside) and they turned on the heaters on the patio for us. The heaters were so warm that we didn't even need our jackets. beautiful outdoor patio area!

The food was fantastic. For an appetizer we had the ravoli with mushroom sauce and we all loved it. For dinner we ordered chicken parmesean, 2 veal dishes, and the vegetarian lasagna. There was not a spot left on any of our plates!

The service was great. Food came with good timing between ordering, appetizer, and dinner. Just wish we had room for dessert!

“Good basic Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Everything here is good basic Italian food. Nice tomato sauce with a couple of hand made pastas. My Vesak piccata was tasty and very tender, bread was good and the wine was cold. Service was fast and efficient with a smile. Prices are a little high but not stupid. Atmosphere is weak.
