Mu husband and I visited Sedona during the busy 4th of July weekend. Since Chicago is known for its wonderful Italian cuisine, we seldom try it out of town. We are so happy our Concierge recommended we visit Dahl and DiLuca. The setting is well done and comfortable. The location was convenient, even though we were at Enchantment ,just outside Sedona. The service was great both times, with both Violet and Steve. They helped us to select our dishes and wine. We even had Violet pick between two entrees which can be difficult.
The food from start to finish was AMAZING!!! The bruschetta and Caprese were wonderfully done with great flavor on ciabatta bread. Most salads can be ordered in two sizes and the Rustic and Caesar were exceptional. Our pasta with sausage (Pavarotti was in the name) was one of the best pasta dishes we have ever had, with both the pasta and sausage house made. The lamb chops were beautifully grilled and flavored. The portions were comfortable and I never eat everything on my plate but did that night!!
The selections were so perfect we retuned two days later for the same menu!!! The wine list was nicely selected with lots of good choices in many price ranges. The only thing we were sad about is that we were too full for the desserts on both visits. We saw them selected by others and they looked great, but after everything else, we couldn't eat another bite.
To top off our fantastic evening, the owner, Lisa Dahl, stopped by our table to check on our meal. That effort is not made nearly as much as it used to be in restaurants. She was very gracious and obviously passionate about her food and overall business. Our check was very reasonable even with a decent bottle of wine and a port.
We can't wait for our next visit to Sedona! Please open something in Chicago!!
