Great Italian restaurant had the pasta with meat sauce and pork chop. Both were very flavorful. They use fresh ingredients which you can taste in the flavor of their food.

This was our first visit so we weren't sure of what to expect. What we found exceeded our expectations. First, a lovely place with a welcoming front porch, and inside, quiet and small, with soft background music, not one of the usual roudy island places....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 has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 10 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 4:30-6PM.
