Another of Lisa Dahls restaurants, it is high end and very good. Had desserts and espressos last night at the bar. Crème Brulee is creamy and comes with berries and was WOW! Service was excellent and they have live piano music most nights.More

We loved this restaurant! We were able to sit outside on the patio with the sparkling lights next to the fire place. We had a wonderful evening and were able to eat delicious italian. The wine was outstanding and we had great service.

We like to have dinner at Cucina Rustica while staying in the Village. The food and service are always very good. The patio is nice, although the view is not that wonderful. Having dinner here makes for a great evening.

We had a great dinner out on the patio. We highly recommend the veal. It was tender, and cooked to perfection. The eggplant was also delicious. The staff was very professional and the over all experience was worth the trip across town.More

It depends on how busy the restaurant is. It might be too busy on a Saturday night in High Season but only the kitchen can determine that. The number is 928-284-3010
