The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The decor is beautiful. I would definitely go back.
We're a fan of all the other Lisa Dahl restaurants so thought we'd finally give Cucina Rustica a try and we were not disappointed. The food, ambiance, and service were all perfect. I just don't think you can go wrong with anything you order there. We were craving Italian food and went to another very highly rated Sedona Italian restaurant and were so disappointed. I won't name it since we only went there once and it could have been a fluke and the service was great. As an Italian-American I wanted something a bit more authentic and really loved the menu at Cucina.
The food, service and wait time was excellent would recommend!
My husband and I were sat at the smallest table known to man, surrounded by a million conversations on our one year anniversary. They ran out of what I wanted, so I ordered a side of the Pomodoro ($10), the guy says would you like the alfredo linguine, I was like sure that sounds great (ends up being $16 with no warning), I bet most people dining here don't care about money, but we work hard for ours so I was a bit bummed. Also, we forgot the meal comes with bread, so we ordered the house focaccia, he didn't mention that it will come with other bread because we definitely didn't need both. The food was subpar. We come here for all the special occasions in our life, and nothing was necessarily "wrong", but definitely not worth the amount of money we spent. Also, the people next to us requested to sit outside, and the host looked at them and said "I don't really deal with that" and then sat them inside....Uhm okay then who does? They were much nicer than I would hav been.
Was my wife's birthday we totally enjoyed the restaurant. Food , service and ambiance was more than we ever dream it could be. Thank You all !!!
The food was very good but the hostess service and the bar server were a bit rude. The bartender seemed inconvienced. If it wasn't for that or the hostess I would have given the restaurant a much higher review.
Great food and great service
It was a beautiful place but the lighting was too low.
We had a great time at Cucina Rustica, food was great and the service was outstanding, definitively will comeback.
It was great
Brooke was an excellent server. Great personality and not fake! She was great!
One of the best restaurants in the Sedona area. The service was outstanding. Food was delicious.
Beautiful restaurant & patio. Food is absolutely amazing!
We got the mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto, was expecting the mozzarella to be actual mozzarella but it was melted shredded cheese.
I ordered the bolognese pasta and it was soggy and the sauce barely had any flavor.
The other person ordered the lasagna and tasted like it was frozen, and not to mention that the grated “parmesan cheese” is also not even fresh its like kraft or something.
Overall, The restaurant is over priced and the food is too commercial.
As always Cucina Rustica is a great restaurant for those special occasions. The food and the service is one of the best I have been too.
Only disappointment was not getting a table on the front patio. Such a cool place. We had a great meal and experience regardless. Filet was to die for. Vodka sauce seafood past was amazing. Highly recommend!!
Cucina Rustica was highly recommended by our innkeeper and many others. So we thought we would give it a try for our anniversary celebration.
We were not disappointed!
We were seated immediately upon our arrival and our table was decked out with rose petals. We were greeted quickly by our server and had what we needed when we wanted it, which was fantastic as it was obvious that she was very busy serving the entire room. Her attention to us and others was perfect.
We shared the grilled artichoke and brutus (caesar) salad, both were delicious. My husband had the filet and I tried the seafood in vodka sauce again both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. We splurged on dessert because of the occasion and had the chocolate and new raspberry white chocolate cheesecake. Highly recommend both.
For our first trip to Sedona, this was the best dining experience we had. So glad we were able to enjoy Cucina Rustica! Will definitely return.
Absolutely excellent. This was our fourth time celebrating a yearly birthday. We look forward going again next year as we live in California.
Nothing bad to say!! Perfect service. Waitress knew everything about everything on the menu as well as the wines!
We love this place..... never disappoints.....great memories
The ambiance was perfect as was the food and wait staff. Would go here anytime!
This is a nice restaurant with good food and great service! I would recommend for date night or night out with the whole family.
Beautiful, romantic evening with great sercice!!!!
Everything was great! Probably best steak I ever had!! 7oz Filet with a mushroom coating or glaze!
Wife ordered a Peachy Keen Martini and she absolutely LOVED! Still talking about it!!
Best Cheesecake on EVER!!
We were on our Honeymoon from out of town and could not have been happier with meal!
When making reservation make sure you request to sit outside! We did not know and were inside. Not horrible it was just a beautiful Sept. night to be outside!!
very sensitive to social distancing. excellent service. awesome food.
Ambiance was very romantic for an after sunset dinner. Patio faces east so sunset was not viewable.
Service was slow and server was not particularly friendly.
Food was very good but not exceptional
Fabulous, as always. Outside Dining at Cucina is the best
Every time we are in Sedona, ergo this outstanding place. Charming atmosphere, great food and impecable service. A true gem.
The food and service at Cucina Rustica are always top-notch. Our party of 2 had a lovely evening dining on the patio. Our server, Gio, was on point and we appreciated his feedback and knowledge about the food and beverage menus. We had a very pleasant experience and highly recommend this restaurant.
A very enjoyable evening with outstanding service by everyone. Kaitlyn was our server & we will certainly ask for her again. All support staff was excellent & very polite & professional. The food was wonderful. My wife, Betty, & I we’re celebrating our 47th anniversary so the evening was extra special. We are already planning Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years! Thanks to all.

Great place. Wines a little pricy. Service excellent.
I was hoping for romantic patio seating to celebrate my husbands birthday. They put us at a table in the center of the patio where we had constant traffic of the service staff going by us on both sides, and our table was so dark we couldn't see the menus. We couldn't really have a conversation because we would have to talk over those around us, and that makes it hard to have a private conversation. Other than that, it was great, but really should consider not having the tables in the center of the patio, and instead keep to the lighted outskirts.
The wife and I celebrate our anniversary each year and have never been dissapointed. We will continue to do so as long as possible. This was celebrating our 61st wedding anniversary. Food and service was perfect
Cucina Rustica is our favorite restaurant in the valley, and is one of the main reasons we stay out in Oak Creek when we come (every other
year). Highly recommended!
Beautiful setting to have Dinner outside
Cute place. The food was good but not as good as we were anticipating.
Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Our experience at the restaurant was outstanding and we will be back!!
The ambiance was wonderful from the moment we got there we knew it would be a wonderful experience. Started with a drink and appetizer at the bar with Dillon great service and fabulous drinks. We sat outside food excellent ambiance superb!
Lisa Dahl you never disappoint!!! We will be back!
Our favorite place to eat. We live in Phoenix but its worth the drive.
The back patio was very nice and comfortable during these times. Food and service were excellent!
