Fabulous as always!!!
Everything was excellent. The chef’s tasting menu was delicious and the added touch of the extra mushroom soup brought to the table by the chef himself, was really great. Highly recommend!
We had a Rack of Lamb Special and Medallions of Beef. Both were simply Outstanding!
Fritz was our server and he was perfect.
Overall a 5/5 !!!
One of my favorite restaurants! Absolutely great food, and great service! Love eating here!
Excellent service and well spaced tables. The meals were beautifully plated and our dinners were so outstanding that there was not a morsel left on our plates.
Great neighborhood spot; always excellent!
Rusconi's is at the top my wife and my list for date nights. Excellent food and service and never disappoints.
A neighborhood favorite. Good variety on the menu. Everything fresh and tasty.
everything, except the volume of the noise was A+. and I think the noise was so high because people are so happy to be out and about!
Amazing food and service! Thank you!🙌🙏
Great Sunday brunch spot on a rainy day with a southwestern inspired menu.
Four of us came to Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. We had a marvelous time! Favorite dishes: the short rib benedict and the chocolate soufflé. Totally original and delicious.
Took my sister in law and niece to lunch from out of town. They loved it, as did I.
Those potatoes under the tenderloin.... oh my goodness! Perfect service. Delicious meals.
First time here. The food was wonderful, service was great. Really enjoyed ourselves. We'll be back.
Our service was exemplary- warm, friendly, and engaging in top of wanting to make sure the kids and adults were all happy with the experience! The food is scrumptious from the brunch menu - not one item we tried was less than stellar. Will definitely be back!!!
You will not find many places better than Rusconi's at this price.
Food was exceptional all 4 entrees ( all different) were top notch..
Very chef driven menu without being crazy or pretentious!
A group of 6 of us met here for a dinner/business meeting. The service was prompt and attentive without being intrusive. Each member of our group ordered a different meal and every plate left our table clean. Wonderful food!
This was my first time eating out since the lockdown in March of 2020 and I had to make it Rusconi's - my favorite restaurant. It did not disappoint! Rex, the server, as always was attentive, friendly and offered good suggestions. The burrata salad is so crisp and fresh. The scallops were melt in your mouth and the shaved vegetable salad on top was great. Half price wine night doesn't hurt. My friend (first time diner who was not disappointed) shared the fabulous bread pudding (of course ala mode). I'm so happy to see that Rusconi's is more than holding their own and could never disappoint!
Always great. Fritz was wonderful.
Another wonderful evening at Rusconi's! The food and drinks were delicious! Tried the add-on scallops with my beef tenderloin medallions! Will have them again and again! The smokey Old-fashion is remarkable!
Austin's service is always top-notch and caring. He does everything he can to make the experience memorable and enjoyable! I will be back as often as I can make the 2-hour drive!
We had another amazing meal and wonderful service from Fritz tonight. The atmosphere of Rusconi’s is warm
Andy inviting. All the staff is wonderful but Fritz is exceptional. He makes you feel comfortable as soon as he comes over. The food is delicious and everything is fresh and served beautifully.
Would recommend Rusconi’s to anyone wanting an enjoyable evening ?catching up with friends and eating delicious food .
This was THE most excellent meal we had ALL week. I can’t wait to come back here.
Another great experience food is creative and delicious with excellent service . My go to place in phoenix
wonderful as always. best place in the valley. try to enjoy once per week.
Excellent all around. Chef Michael is a very creative chef mixing an extremely interesting variety of flavors and textures that all come together for a wonderful meal. Served well by an attentive staff that adds to the enjoyment of the experience
As always, Chef Rusconi and his entire staff were amazing. They’ve always done such a perfect job at making it feel homey, personable and enjoyable. The food is fantastic. We will ALWAYS be returning. You guys are amazing :)
We were just out with friends as we try to make it to Rusconi’s a few times per month to enjoy the excellent good and catch up with Fritz, Rex, and the rest of the staff, plus Michael himself.
Our cheese-stuffed-fig appetizer was simple, unexpected, and exquisite! For all three of us, every single bite thereafter was a bit of an adventure and absolutely delectable.We tried valiantly to save enough room for dessert, and were just barely successful: again, we savored every marvelous morsel. Server Fritz was fun but not intrusive, and the entire staff seemed interested in delivering a stellar experience: it was superb in every way!
Fritz is the best. Ask for him to be your server.
This place is good as hell. Even the carrots are memorable. The carrots.
My only criticism is that there’s only one vegetarian entree but it’s amazing so I didn’t mind one bit after the first bite of that risotto. But seriously, chef— the vegetables you do serve are unforgettable. More of that, please.
And the deserts were good as hell, too.
Rusconi's never disappoints! It's perfect for a special occasion or just dinner with friends.
Always, always a good experience with Rusconi's. The food and the service is impeccable. Great atmosphere. Definitely a must visit.
If you've not tried or have passed on Rusconi's for either dinner or brunch, you are missing out on a REAL hidden gem of a quality restaurant. If you've assumed that from the name Rusconi's that it's Italian, you're dead wrong. American dishes prepared and presented perfectly. Saturday and Sunday brunch is THE BEST DEAL in town with dishes that will have you coming back for more! I reccomend the short rib hash, the kitchen benedict or French toast. If you're lucky you might be there when the bananas foster French toast is being offered. For dinner, the tenderloin medallions over REAL truffle mac and cheese is fantastic. Scallops are a big winner as well as the blackberry glazed salmon. Great wine selection, and the bloody Marys are so good!
Try it. Enjoy it. Go back to it.....
We enjoyed our Saturday Brunch at Rusconi's. The décor and atmosphere is very pleasant. The waiter was very attentive and the food was good. We hope to return and experience their dinner menu sometime soon!
