Rusconi’s is one of our favorite restaurants. The food was delicious, service was wonderful. Attention to detail was spot on.
Our waiter , who we had once before, Holden, was superb. His personality and charm along with his love of what he does, made for an enjoyable dinner. We brought friends who had not been there before and they left as fans. Holden had remembered what wine we ordered from the last time we were in. I found that very impressive!
Great dinner and a wonderful night!

As great as the food was, the service was equally good. We have eaten here many times and always have great service and great food. I try not to recommend it too much because I want to be sure I'm able to get in!

Always a great meal at Rusconis. Quality ingredients are definitely used and always something unique (but not far fetched) on the menu. The wait staff is also top notch.

Food was delicious as always. One of our favorite restaurants when we’re in town. Decided to try something new from my usual - the sweet potato bisque and the scallops and went with Chef Michael’s special creations - a beet soup that was phenomenal and a delicious duck breast on top of a vegetable hash. The duck breast was cooked to perfection. Cocktails excellent and sorbet sampler for dessert. Service was good but is usually great! Server was not as personable and friendly as we’re used to at Rusconi’s but he warmed up nicely as the meal progressed. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Outstanding experience. Kris was a professional attentive server. Both of us had the outstanding scallop dish which was served to perfection. Flavors and textures were amazing. Chocolate bread pudding ala mode was out of this world. A real home run.

My husband and I have introduced many friends to this restaurant - it never disappoints. My favorite is the tenderloin medallions with green Chile mac'n cheese. Excellent! Their specials are always outstanding - tonight we had an appetizer of crab cakes with sweet Arizona shrimp - so yummy!

I love Rusconi’s. It’s always good. Food and service were great for Easter Brunch. Only complaint: mimosas, bloody Mary’s, etc were not the usual Sunday price, but instead were full price. On top of a $58 brunch, the drink cost was a bit steep.

This is my favorite restaurant in Phoenix. The service was excellent without being intrusive and the food was exquisite. I recommend the roasted chicken with risotto and carrots. The risotto is seasoned with wonderful herbs and green chile and the best I've ever had. The chicken was perfectly prepared in terms of flavor and texture. Thank you, Rusconi's!

We have been going to Rusconi's for a year or so. We have never had a bad meal there. Mr. Rusconi is a marvelous chef and his management is marvelous. We have gone to several of the wine tasting venue's and have never been disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant experience to anyone. The only issue for us is that it is 45 minutes plus from our house and we still make the trip. Marvelous!

I reserved a table for 5. When we arrived we were taken to a rectangular table set for 6. The hostess simply took away one place setting leaving one person to sit with an empty place in front of them. I had to insist that she take the extra chair away so we could spread the places out and ensure everyone was included. Really not a great start to what ended up to be a great evening.

This was our second time to dine at Rusconi's and we were just as pleased with the food and service as we were on our first visit. The short ribs, the chicken, and the bread pudding for dessert are already special favorites. My only complaint with this visit was that there was a lot of smoke coming from the kitchen which is open to the dining area. This may have been because a filet was the special that evening but it caused the experience to be less enjoyable than it was the first time we went. We love the food though and we will certainly be back for another meal.
