    Another outstanding meal. This has become one of our favorites in the Valley. For restaurant week there were subtle variations on some of the standard fare. We brought our oldest daughter and her partner from Pennsylvania, and they both declared it was one of the best restaurant experiences they have had

    I tried Rusconi’s during restaurant week and will definitely go back soon. Our server was friendly and helpful with decision making. I liked the ambiance; especially the quiet atmosphere which made conversation with my friends easy. The scallops were cooked to perfection. I saved room for desert, so took two scallops home and they were still quite tasty the next night. Rusconi’s will be added to my favorite neighborhood spot list.

    The food was phenomenal and the service was exceptional! It was the best way to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. She started with the burrata salad and I with the crab gazpacho and both were amazing! We both had the tenderloin medallions on top of the truffle mac & cheese. The steak was incredibly tender and flavorful, and the mac & cheese was perfectly made with just the right amount of truffle essence You won’t regret coming here. I only regret not getting the name of our server who took great care of us and made my daughter feel special on her birthday.

    We visited during restaurant week and half price wine night. We ordered the short ribs and pork tenderloin. Both were amazing and just so tender. We did upgrade one dessert to the Chocolate bread pudding. Totally worth it!! We hope to eat here more frequently!

    Another wonderful evening with friends and exceptional food, was seated in an area I had requested. Our waiter Austin E outstanding, excellent service, obviously likes his job and is so attentive, never had to ask or remind him for anything. My friends were from Detroit and they absolutely loved their dinners, exceptional cocktails. All in all, a very memorable evening, thanks to everyone at Rusconi's.

    We were first introduced to Rusconi's a year ago during restaurant week. We loved our food, our server, and the restaurant itself. Bonus - on Sunday's the wines are 1/2 price. We look forward to our visits with great anticipation. The short ribs are outstanding.

    I began with a Pear Martini it was exquizite just as though I had bitten into a ripe sweet dripping pear. I had the restaurant week menu featuring the beef short rib. It was served upon a bed of grilled crispy peas. The dish was amazing!

    My boyfriend loves this restaurant and it was my first time dining. Every one of the staff was extremely nice and greeted us cordially. Our server Rex was knowledgeable and gave us attention when needed but also gave us plenty of time to ourselves. The food was the best I have enjoyed since coming to Phoenix from Chicago so my standards are high. The Meyer’s limoncello martini was delicious. We even had a chance to compliment Chef Michael at the end of our meal. All in all a wonderful experience we definitely will be back.

    The food is always amazing at Rusconi’s. 99% of the time the service is great as well. This particular visit our waiter didn’t seem to love his job. But, we will definitely be back for the beignets, tenderloin medallions, truffle Mac and cheese, short rib, etc.

    As usual the food was excellent - we had dinner with friends we hadn’t seen in. A while so we ordered slow and talked for 2 and a half hours and we were never rushed nor did the server make us feel like she had to turn the table. We ordered a generous amount of food and drinks so we did not take advantage- a wonderful evening
