REALLY Good Italian food. Good find
beautiful restaurant, ambiance terrific. seating prompt and great location, overalll very quiet. Waiter seemed a lttle preoccupied, and slow(10 mintes from Martini order to get to table) no excuse. Caprese salad was good, however no balsamic vinegar(surprise) Lasagna was terrific, not greasy, she had veal saltambucca which was also very good. Wine selection far reaching and representative of most countries. Our water pourer was outstanding , kinda hippyesque, and very informative.
We absolutely loved the service and food. We will definitely be back for sure...such a beautiful place! Thanks!
Arrived early, sat us immediately. Two well mannered wait staff, one in training and both excellent.
Extensive wine list- typical and unique
Italian/Tuscan/Mediterranean blend menu
Prepared and plated ideally
Great atmosphere indoor and out
It was my friends 40th bday , perfect place , quiet , relaxing , great service and food .
Excellent ambiance, outstanding service and superb food!
From the moment you see the restaurant, you realize you are in for an amazing meal. The ambiance and smells upon entering are amazing. The food is outstanding and the staff is caring and helpful. A place you will want to come to ofton.
I've always enjoyed this place they never disappoint food is always excellent the service is top-notch
Local residents, long time patrons of Cucina. Virus obviously affecting operations - very limited menu which is ok but quality of prep and ingredients sinking fast. Appetizer and Two fish dishes - all disappointing. Will not go back in the foreseeable future.
Excellent service, atmosphere, food was amazing and the key lime pie, wow !!! Highly recommend if visiting Sedona or if you live near by
Service was impeccable and yet very friendly. The food was delicious. Even the bread rolls were amazing. I recommend the artichoke appetizer and the lemon cheesecake dessert.
This is an amazing experience. Cucina Rustica is a five star restaurant that we ALWAYS visit when we are in the Sedona area. The food, wine, service, ambiance, are all perfect.
I was disappointed that I couldn't say hello to chef Lisa Dahl!!! I am a respiratory therapist and took care of her brother many years ago, but wanted to say hi!.....and tell her that I finally made it to one of her restaurants!!!!
Thanks- Misti Green
We were on vacation in Sedona and we decided to try Cucina for dinner our second night. We absolutely loved the food and the cool, Italian style patio. The meal was spectacular and after trying a few other places, we went back two more times. It was the best set of meals we had in Sedona and we will be regulars whenever we’re back. I highly recommend the homemade sangria, the lasagna or salmon and lemon cello to top off desert. Great place and reasonable prices for the quality of the experience
Excellent experience all the way around. My husband and I split calamari, Mediterranean plate (humus, olives, bread, mozzarella), and wild caught salmon for the main entre.
The server was very helpful and split the main entre for us so we didn’t have to do it. Food was very tasty and hot!
Will go back for sure.
We ate on the patio. It was very safe with good distancing between tables. Our server David did an excellent job staging the meal. We had the artichoke, gazpacho and chicken parm. The food was excellent. Would recommend to all.
All I can say is WOW from the service to the quality of the food! Rich tasting great service at such an amazing price 5 Stars if I could give more I would!
Incredible experience all around, our server was knowledgeable, polite, and very friendly. Was on a romantic date and it was the perfect atmosphere.
Best Italian food I’ve ate outside of Rome. Great service and the design of restaurant makes it seem so quiet
Terrific restaurant that lived up to its reputation. Tables are hard to book, but once you dine there you understand why. Definitely a great stop while you’re in the Sedona area.
Very good neal and an excellent wine list. I loved the lasagna and my wife enjoyed the chicken pasta. Really love the outdoor seating, although not quite as scenic as some of the chef’s other places we’ve tried. Will definitely god back because Of the great food and nice, Italian style patio
the food was great as always, but the service left more to be desired. the waiter took a long time to take our order and multiple times to get things we have asked for. last time we were there the service was 10 out of 10, but this time sadly it was not as great. the food was fantastic though and we really enjoyed it.
The meal and the service was great. We loved the atmosphere in the restaurant.
Perfect evening enhanced by great service, ambience and delicious food.
It was a perfect experience. Our server (I unfortunately do not remember her name) went above and beyond to give us the best dining experience. We dont drink and she went out of her way to recommend mocktails that werent on the menu so we could have that extra something special. We sat outside and the ambience was magical with the lighting and the unique charm of the restaurant. We ate at night so we couldnt see the landscape, but if you eat during the day the red rocks would be an excellent backdrop. It was an overall exceptional moment and a perfect addition to our stay in Sedona.
Kaitlyn was our server, supported by Matt. They were the absolute best!
Couple of reviews about rude hosts had me worried but we were greeted warmly and and seated promptly. Our server was very genial. Food came promptly and was delicious. Loved the ambience. Would definitely return.
Best meal we have had there in years!
Very nice place with a great patio and views. Food was very good with deep rustic Italian flavors. Portions were moderate which I enjoyed -unlike many Italian places ins the US who los in the food and lack on flavor. Definitely worth a try. I would come back
We had a very pleasant dinner in the outdoor patio. The weather cooperated and we enjoyed the experience with very good food and service.
Excellent! Quiet and romantic. Service was not intrusive. Food was superb. We will be back again.
Excellent service from David, beautiful atmosphere . We certainly will be going back.
Nice ambiance out in the beautiful community of Oak Creek to the east of Sedona. Since Lisa Dahl dominates the culinary scene in Sedona, I’m always hoping for a bit higher quality food. Nothing we ordered really wowed us in any way. Most of it was lacking in flavor. The marinara sauce is very good. Would really love to see some creative bruschettas on the menu, or anything really creative as a starter, salad, or pasta dish. Not bad, just not up to the reputation she carries when we come here to visit.
It was kinda hot inside. Good food but a bit on expensive side
The food was great. Our server had a hard time remembering what she was doing. Multiple times she left to go grab us some but brought other things out to other tables. She would see us and say or right one moment. I understand being busy but it was to many forgetful moments.
Beautiful environment. Delicious food and amazing quality. You get your money’s worth and more. It’s like you’re in Italy.
Food and atmosphere were very nice but what impressed me most was the service. The waiter and floor manager were very attentive and handled a small issue that we had, with grace. I definitely recommend.
Great ambience, fabulous food. Our waitress was great in making it a wonderful evening overall.
This is a lovely restaurant. The service was attentive and the food wonderful. The grilled artichoke appetizer was amazing, a smoky delicacy. The salmon was beautifully cooked and very tender. Great atmosphere also.
