Wait staff was attentive and charming. Food was excellent but wine was expensive and so were the entrees. Very crowded and outside was heated and lighting was beautiful

The food is good, and reflects the decor. It's a bit over the top, as though the decorator went beserk at a yard sale in old Italy. The menu descriptions just exceed the food by a bit. The food is really quite good, but somehow...More

We decided to visit Cucina Rustica because it was walking distance from our hotel and we knew more than likely we would enjoy some drinks. The ambience of the restaurant was perfect for our first dinner together as husband and wife. We got there early,...More

My husband and I had dinner here a couple of days ago. The dining room was very busy but luckily they had an open table on the patio. It was a slightly chilly night but between the fireplace and heaters, the space was plenty warm....More

they do have gluten free alternatives. I believe they will have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. However there are so many other places that will have that offered too. Perfect time to visit Sedona.

It depends on how busy the restaurant is. It might be too busy on a Saturday night in High Season but only the kitchen can determine that. The number is 928-284-3010

Old World decor with hand-crafted antique doors and ornate iron gates from around the world, draw you in then transport you back in time. The restaurant wraps its arms around you and settles you into a dining experience that many foodies seek out, but rarely find. The restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 12 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. Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday 4:00-6:00 PM.
