We were visiting Sedona for the first time and spent two nights at Las Posadas. Cucina Rustica was across the street and based on tripadvisor reviews we decided to give it a try. We loved it so much we made a reservation and went back the next evening. The food is amazing, the wine list extensive, and the service outstanding. We particularly enjoyed our waiter, Don, the first evening - he was engaging and provided excellent recommendations off the menu.

Waiter seated us, then another waiter came up to him, pointed at us, and said "those people should not be sitting there because they do not have a reservation". How rude!!!! It looks like a nice place and not sure how the food is because at that point we got up and left. Will never be going back there because there are many other restaurant choices in the area.

The food was spectacular, service excellent and we really enjoyed the singer/guitar player they had there the night we visited. SO glad Carol from Red Agave recommended this place!! We were a family of 4 and the kids (teens) enjoyed it as much as we did.

We visited this restaurant yesterday for my birthday. The location is about 6 miles from down town Sedona, but it's a nice drive.
The atmosphere was amazing! We set outside by one of the fireplaces. It was so romantic! The true fill of Italy!
The food was the best! We had surf and turf (special that evening). Everything on the plate was prepared to perfection!
Loved the place! Will come back again!

Our party of 4 ate at this restaurant last week. The food was excellent, although a bit pricey for the serving size. All sides were ala carte. Wonderful atmosphere.
