As usual, the service and food were terrific. We started with the cauliflower soup which had a lovely smokey flavor. We especially like that it was not a cream-based soup. I had the sea scallops, which are served with a purée of cauliflower and carrot combo. My husband ordered the mussels. The portion was large, but more importantly, prepared in a tasty broth. I uncharacteristically ordered the Kitchen Gin and Tonic, rather than a glass of wine. The G&T had a balanced flavor highlighted by wedges of lime, pink grapefruit and orange zest.

I took a friend here to celebrate her birthday. Service was excellent. My friend had the duck and I had the chicken. Both were fantastic! This is a great little neighborhood gem!

A fine late night meal. Staff made no issue over us staying well past official closing time.

Garlic appetiser was inspired.
Mussels entree had very plump juicy mussels and a great sauce.
Salmon entree was as good as it gets.

A true neighbourhood treasure.

My husband and I love Rusconi's and go there often to sit at the bar or the outside patio. The food, service and ambiance are wonderful but it is TOO NOISY! We were there Saturday night with four friends and it was almost impossible to have a conversation. It was so disappointing because we wanted our friends to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants. It's nice that it's so popular but does this have to be the "new normal" for restaurants?

Yeah it’s in a strip mall, but after you experience the fantastic service and enjoy the out of site great food and drinks and homemade ice cream. You’ll forget all about the location. We can’t wait to get back in there.

Great food and wait staff awesome! Although located in strip mall once you’re inside the vibe is good! Only complaint was we had reservation and think we were overlooked so had to wait. Not a big deal but it was already a little late in the evening for some of our party. But waiter offered complimentary appetizer. Highly recommend

Probably my favorite restaurant in Scottsdale. We have had brunch, lunch, and dinners there. When friends visit it’s the first place that comes to mind. Their menu rotated a bit with plenty of specials. We have never had anything that we did not like. The portions are perfect.

Favorites: salmon and beef tenderloin medallions, short rib Benedict for brunch.

As usual you n a weekend it was packed during prime dinner hours but we were seated within minutes of our reservation time with our favorite server, Fritz.

Our friends had the steak special, we had the beef medallions done perfectly. A trio of testy ice creams and a wonderful pie with coffee Club sed out a wonderful casual evening without feeling rushed.

A great evening...thank you.

Great food! I had the sirloin with asparagus and sweet potatoes. Great dish...great sauces...right amount of portions. Wife had the chicken and thought it was good. Son had the lamb chops and loved them. Apps we had the drunken goat cheese and octopus. The octopus was good, but the goat cheese dip reminded me of onion dip I put out at any party. Not anything extraordinary, but it didn’t suck. Service was on point. We’ll definitely go back again.

Rusconi's NEVER disappoints.... each dish is perfectly cooked and beautiful. We tried the buffalo for the first time, and it was outstanding! (But a 6:45 reservation was still too late for the halibut! Boo hoo!) And-- if you can leave without ordering at least one order of the chocolate bread pudding for the table to share, you are a stronger person than I am!

What a delightful way to spend New Years Eve. The food on a Special fixed menu was outstanding. A huge shout out to Rex our waiter who was knowledgeable, warm and careful to meet our needs but not hover over us.
