Description: In the lovely village of Oak Creek, Sedona you'll find a gem...The doorway to the imagination awaits you here. Old World decor with hand-crafted antique doors and ornate iron gates from around the world, draw you in then transport you back in time. The restaurant wraps its arms around you and settles you into a dining experience that many foodies seek out, but rarely find. The restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 8 consecutive years. You will see Chef Lisa Dahl almost every evening visiting with guests, signing her award-winning cookbook, and in the kitchen paying close attention to every detail to ensure you'll have the most enjoyable dining experience.

“Great food and wonderful atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

A great dining experience. From beginning to end, we felt like we were in a fine dining establishment. The manager came by during the meal to see how we were doing. My wife and I shared a desert at the end and it was a perfect finish to a wonderful meal.

“An Italian Haven in Sedona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Lisa Dahl is an inspired cook. Hand made pasta is always tasty. The combination of unique ingredients makes for interesting, creative and delicious dishes. There is often a guitarist playing softly while diners are still able to have intimate discussions. As a local resident, I always go to my most important celebrations to this restaurant and never been disappointed.

“Good food, slightly overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Ambience and service were excellent - food was good, but not great. Would have liked more seafood choices or choices with less sauce and/or green chilies on everything.
