Love this place. Half price wine bottles on Sunday and Monday. Had the filet medallions. One was over cooked. They had a replacement very quickly. Fritz the waiter is the best.

This was our second year having Valentines Dinner at Rusconi’s. The food is always consistent and well prepared. Our server Fritz was very pleasant and accommodating. This place is a winner. Can’t wait to try the Sunday Brunch. Only issue we had was that they didn’t have any bread available for the table even after we asked.

We were there with friends who also like the restaurant. However, there were some items that we were not pleased with.....didn't want to say anything in front of our guests. The medium filet was overcooked and the risotto was not done well enough in our opinion. We also miss having bread at the table. When entrees with sauces are served, it is wonderful to be a able to enjoy the sauce i.e. muscles and the gravies. Fritz was our server and we all enjoyed him VERY much.

Fantastic time at Rusconi's prior to a concert at M.I.M.
Started with Happy Hour appetizers and wine - could have made our whole meal on these great selections. Mussels and Warm Olives were great.
Dinner was fantastic - Short Rib and Duck for entrees - both fantastic!!

Very good overall. The portions (esp. the beef medallions) of the main courses are not big. But food was tasty and service was great!

My brother and his wife were visiting from out of town and thought this would be a good choice that, while very popular, is still somewhat unknown even among locals who’ve lived in Phoenix for 25 years!

The burgers are always a good choice, and come with a generous portion of fries cooked perfectly. My brother had the salmon which was superb, and even the Brussel Sprouts were great!. We topped it off with an ice cream/sorbet trio which was divine.

The service here is consistently about perfect, and Management here is EXCELLENT. If a problem should ever arise, they understand how to resolve and take take care of the customers as few establishments do throughout the country. I highly recommend this great, locally owned and independent restaurant.

Our party of 3 went for Sunday Brunch. Each of us found the eggs amazing, both scrambled and omelette style. For “dessert” we shared the bananas Foster pancakes, which were unbelievably sumptuous! Our waiter was accommodating and had a great sense of humor!

A friend introduced me to the restaurant about a year ago and I have gone several times since. I've never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is excellent, it's a comfortable restaurant, the prices are good. I highly recommend this restaurant if you have never been there.

Excellent food, great service! My favorite is the charcuterie plate for happy hour. It's a small meal for two or a great appetizer split four ways.
Good choices for wines and liqueurs, would love to have them add an amaro to their list.

Loving us some Ruscon's! We really enjoy their menu, their staff and the delicious food and cocktails.

We were taken care of extra special well by Hannah, who greeted us a "VIPs" by name when we sat down at our table. Turns out Rusconi's actually knows and acknowledges when you are a returning customer. I have to say, this was a welcome departure from most other places where we have gone to multiple times. Good for them.

We highly recommend Rusconi's for a terrific meal out. Don't be fooled by the exterior of being in a strip shopping center. This place is fine/fun dining all the way.

We have loved Rusconis since they opened. It's a great neighborhood place to meet friends. One of my favorite items has been the grilled chicken salad. Alas, it has not been up to par the last two times I have ordered it. Not a favorite anymore, but lots of other things to order.
