The restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 10 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.

“Very nice ambience and excellent food”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

They said no dress code, but actually best not to wear shorts . They were very accommodating and said there was no dress code. The food was great. We had Osso Bucco, Linguine Vongole , seafood pasta and mahi mahi and all were good. the portion was just right. Service was very good.

“Amazing Italian with a Southwest Flare”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great food. Their olive oil dipping oil is to "live for"! Beware though, it was a little spicy if you don't like spice. We couldn't get enough of it.
Make sure to make a reservation for a patio seat for dinner. It was just so romantic and beautiful!

“Incredible”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Probably some of the best Italian food I've ever had. I had the linguine with vodka sauce and lobster. The linguine was house made and fresh. The pasta was velvety, the sauce creamy and delicious, with a very generous amount of perfectly cooked lobster. The entire setting is lovely. I highly recommend Cucina Rustica if you are in the Sedona area and I'd definitely go there again on another visit to this wonderful area.

“Wonderful food, service and ambience”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint. It has a lovely outdoor patio and a beautiful interior. We were greeted promptly by the friendly host. Our server was very informative and attentive. The appetizer special and both our meals were wonderful. Even better was that it was only a couple of blocks from our hotel, so we walked there. If you are in the area, I would recommend you visit this restaurant.
