Lasagna was great - not heavy. Mussels were the best we've had. Wonderful atmosphere. Tiramisu & creme brûlée were superb! We look forward to eating there again on our next visit.

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
