Everything was wonderful, from the time we checked in at the desk and were wished, "Happy Anniversary" until we walked out the door again. The bread and spicy oil dip tasted great. Veggie soup topped with grated, fresh parmisan and cracked pepper. Barcelona seafood linguini was very good with best mussels ever! The chicken topped with spinach and cheese was tasty, too. Tiramisu was perfect. Add to that an excellent guitar entertainer..(specialized in.Van Morrison and Eric Clapton} made for an excellent dining experience....The service was great, too!

Service was friendly and wonderful! Food was fresh and nothing to complain about but for the price point nothing to brag about either. Overall was a good experience but can't say I'd be rushing back here next time we're in town.

We tried Cucina Rustica for dinner. Service was excellent and the seasoning of the meals was spot on. Unfortunately we both had linguine which is made fresh every day. It was so over cooked it was like eating wall paper paste. Hopefully will be better another time as this time was less than average.

We stop there every trip to Sedona. They serve the best in Italian dining.
Many menu choices. The pasta is home made. Seafood dishes are great.
Salads and deserts are superior. The owner is Chef. Servers are excellent and helpful. Reservations are accepted. You can dine inside or outside.
They had a guitar player on Friday evening.
A must try when in Sedona.

From the appetizer to the salad to the entree....if you can make it to desert you be an ecstatic person. This place is "to live for"! It's the only place I've found one of my favorites - carpaccio. It's always perfect! Service is fabulous as well. Delightful experience!
