We traveled the 15 mins from Sedona to Oak Creek for a great meal. Nice atmosphere but the highlight was the taste. Dipping oil was too spicy and the waiter took my mule away before I was done (!) so we adjusted the tip. Great scallops and eggplant parmesan. This is a PRICY restaurant but very good.

We came to Sedona to look at property and stayed for the night. It was dark and rainy we didn't think we would find much. Boy we're we wrong! This place is a gem! The ambiance is amazing and the food was perfection! I had the chicken Parmesan which was great because it is not breaded. My mother had the... More

Our small group of four diners came to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The host refused to sit us at an acceptable table, offering the excuse that all the other tables were "reserved." We were sat at the very edge of the dining room, near the kitchen and near an outside door so we were entertained during the course... More

I was really excited to come here based on all of the positive reviews, and I really wanted to like the place but we just did not have a good experience here. Were seated in a tight corner, even though I'd made a special request over the telephone to be placed in a certain area, and the host was really... More

We recently ate at the Cucina Rustica. The quality of the meal, the service, the atmosphere, and the value were all great.This highly romantic setting was only matched by the meal itself. Both our meals were of the highest quality. Tyler, our waiter, was tremendous as was the jazz guitarist who was playing that evening. The restaurant is a little... More

this place was recommended by several people in coming to Sedona. Call ahead for a reservation because its popular! We had incredible osso buco and linguini del mar with top notch margaritas (I know. not authentically Italian, but they have so many different kinds and they're all great!) it had a cool lively vibe, great service and atmosphere. Definitely a... More

Excellent Caesar salad, nice and fairly reasonable wine selection. Comfortable and cosy with experienced and knowledgeable server. The eggplant with a toasty, smoky tomato sauce was a standout.

This resturant was close to where we stayed. Beautiful resturant inside and out. Lots of lights inside and out at Christmas time. We enjoyed our food and would go back to this place for another special meal.

I have dined several times at two of their other restaurants, Dahl and Diluca, and Mariposa, but not their more casual place, Pisa Lisa, I think it's called. Cucina Rustica is frequently mentioned as a sponsor of the National Public Radio station in Flagstaff, so I decided to have dinner here returning from a day in Phoenix. I was not... More
