Amazing decor, bread, beet salad and dessert sampler. Service really great, too. Outdoor patio romantic. Husband's seafood pasta dish on special that night was good - not great. The homemade linguini was mushy. We will be back.

The interior of Cucina Rustica is beautiful. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. However, the food was just ok--nothing great. Being a foodie, it was disappointing, as the best part of the meal were the rolls and olive oil. We were really surprised...More

We made reservations earlier in the month and it was a good thing. We found out they were very popular. The food and drinks were delicious. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice . They went all out for Valentine's day.

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.
