    Great, uncomplicated food. Very creative and Kristin the server was attentive! Scallops and short ribs are a must. As are the salads.

    We always enjoy Rusconi's for their creative approach to food standards like Salmon and Short Ribs. Always cooked perfectly with the right textures and flavor. My only complaint this time is the Short Rib was too salty for my palate. But then again I saw others in my party who also ordered the Short Ribs add salt. So I wondered if I was being too harsh. Therefore I softened my food rating from 3 start to 4 starts.

    We love this restaurant and go every November for our friends get together:) the only issue we had was all our food essentially came out at once and there was a mix up at the bar and it took a while for my friends cocktail to arrive. Other than that the food was fantastic!

    Terrific place have been many times and never, never disappointed. From the fixed menu (we've eaten it all) to the nightly specials you can't go wrong. It can be summed up in 2 words, "They care", about the menu items and prepare them like they do. It's a little gem for the most part in a failing shopping center. They have stuck it out because they are a high quality operation with a sterling reputation and regardless of surroundings they continue to prosper.

    Rusconis is my favorite restaurant in the entire Phoenix area. The food is delicious and the presentation is done perfectly while each dish is still warm and fresh. It is also not overpriced.

    It took over an hour to receive our food after ordering. We had two dishes and a soup and salad. We have been here many times and were surprised by the slow service.

    Rusconi's American KitchenResponded on November 14, 2022Hi Rick, I'm sorry for the slow service last night. Staffing has been very difficult in our kitchen with a sous Chef and 2 line cooks calling out sick last night. We also just started a new menu which contributed to our struggles. We look forward to seeing you the next time you come in. The service was not slow, my kitchen just got behind due to our staffing issues. I'm glad that you still thought our food was 5 stars.

    Rusconi's is on our agenda every time we come to Scottsdale. On a scale of 1 to 10, the food is an 11. EVERY dish has a tiny but impactful twist of flavor that sends it over the top. Michael can turn an otherwise American classic into something fresh and new. Our first question when we book our trip is "what nights are we going to eat at Rusconi's?"

    We are huge fans and have been loyal to this restaurant. We had 4 people in our party. 3/4 had salads that had way way too much salad dressing on it. I had the medallions of beef with the Mac and cheese. Tasted good but was lukewarm. The cauliflower soup is bland and a disappointment. When we told the waiter, he apologized and that was it. We love this restaurant and will go back but I think it was an off night

    First where we were seated, there was a bar right in the middle which could not be avoided when sitting at our table as the tables are so close together . We were along the back wall. Second the salad , did not have enough salad- about 3 mouthful. Last the pork osso buco needed to taste like pork osso buco. It was not flavorful at all. Service was good though.
