We went here on our anniversary.
The service was great.
The waiter recommended a dish with the homemade pasta and the pasta was great.
Had the seafood special and the seafood was great and just the right amount of homemade pasta was served.
Ate outside and the weather was perfect.

Food, atmosphere, service all exceeded expectations! We celebrated Valentine's here. Lighting, guitar players, fancy tower of balloons all added to the romance! The chocolate Lover's dessert was out of this world! Will definitely make this a destination point on our next visit to AZ!

Very elegant, romantic, warm restaurant to have dinner with a partner or friends.
The food was excellent. The service was very slow even though it was a Wednesday evening after a long week end. Our serveuse said that the bartender was overwhelmed (that was the cause of her being slow to serve us). The guitar player was very good and not loud. Unfortunately we were seated within 2 feet from him that combined with a table of six right behind us made our conversation impossible. The tables are very close to each other and being seated in the middle of the room was not the best experience. One of our friends complained of having his chair constantly kicked .
Being a large crowd of tourists, I would recommend it, however, make sure that you are seated along a wall and away from the musician!

We were seated at an outdoor table on a cool night in October, but with the heaters out there we were still quite comfortable. The atmosphere in the outdoor seating area is very nice with two fireplaces and various fire pits lining area. The service was very good and our waiter was very friendly. We both enjoyed our meals, the wine, and desserts. This dinner was one of our favorite memories from our vacation. We would definitely recommend going to this restaurant if you're in the Sedona area.

The margherita was delightful. The service was great, the food was good and the atmosphere was tremendous. I would go back again for sure.
