Great ambiance, excellent food and service. Brought the family and had outstanding meals. Just be sure to book a reservation. It's very popular and when we were there it was packed!

“Excellent Italian Food in Beautiful Surroundings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Excellent experience! And the great thing about Sedona - you can go dressed in nice jeans to any restaurant in town, even one that looks as elegant as this. Everything we had was great, but I thought the Melanzzane (sp?) one of our party had was a real standout. We had a buffalo mozzarella appetizer that was great as well. I would high recommend this restaurant - it is just lovely.

“Every morsel put upon the table is delectable.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We live near this restaurant and visit on special occasions. While slightly pricey, this is a dining experience not to be missed. Starting off with the crusty artisan bread complemented with dipping oil made with garlic and serrano chilies, everything placed on our table is always wonderful. Great ambience.

“Dahl and DiLuca, the sister restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dahl and DiLuca was wonderful. The food was truly some of the best Italian food we have had and the atmosphere was warm. Since Cucina Rustica is owned by the same people, I would recommend it as well without even eating there. We will definitely try it on our next trip to Sedona!
