Went after a movie Sunday for lunch. All was great as always!!
Was just ok - nothing outstanding . Pompous waiter - prices were average. In a strip mall - overrated at best.
Everything was very good except we had to wait 25 minutes despite having made a reservation.
Service and food were excellent. Wine selection was modestly priced and the selection we made was great.
Had a birthday dinner, wife bought. Invited some friends from Gainey Ranch who had not heard of. We all agreed, food was terrific. I had Lamb 2 ways and the others had their pecial, monkfish. Will definitely put on our remember to go back to list.
This was my second visit to this restaurant. Friday night and very busy and noisy. The service was extraordinary. Wish I’d tried the Monk fish special as I rarely see that anywhere. Girlfriend had the medallions and raved about it. I had the lamb. The menu said portions from the leg as well as chops, but the portions from the leg were tiny and drowning in a sauce that took the natural lamb flavor away. But will be back for other items on the menu.
Risconi’s is my new favorite restaurant!! Excellent menu and the food is superb!!
Not only was the food delicious, the service was outstanding! Our waiter was great! Definitely going back.
Rusconi’s has wonderful food and great service! We love our server as he is quite the comedian!! And he makes sure all is well with everything. The only downside is how noisy it can get when it is crowded...we couldn’t even carry on a conversation. But all in all, one of our favorite places for lunch!!
Always consistent food quality coupled with the best wait staff in the valley makes this our spot for a can't miss evening. Waiters remember our preferences in wine and food, and are always spot on in recommendations.
The meal was wonderful.
The green chili Mac n Cheese never disappoints! My families meals were fantastic but I felt my muscles were too mushy for my taste.
I ordered a starter of short ribs. I received 1 tablespoon of what tasted like instant mashed potatoes and 1/3 of a boneless rib. Truly one bite. For the outrageous price of $12.00. I was embarrassed for the restaurant. The squash soup was delicious. The menu was very pricey. Very noisy.
Great food fun waiter
Love this place. Food and service outstanding. On a restricted diet and they easily met my needs.
We found Rusconi's through Check Please, Arizona and it has become our favorite go-to restaurant. The food is consistently high quality and unique. The servers are friendly and engaging. We've gone with friends more than once and selected different entrees that we each taste. Then it's easier to decide our favorites. The tenderloin medallions are my mine. Their chocolate bread pudding is delicious.
We had heard about Rusconi's as one of Phoenix's better restaurants so we took the opportunity of a visit by our surgeon son from San Diego to explore it to see whether it should join our unfortunately rather short list of recommended restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale. We shared a charcuterie plate as starters, which was pleasant enough but not outstanding, lacking taste favorites such as Italian prosciutto or Spanish jamon, but with a couple of tasty cheese portions and some interesting dried beef. For our main courses my wife had beef short ribs while my son and I had scallops. The short ribs my wife enjoyed while being a little surprised that it consists of a rather large piece of meat in a tasty sauce on a bed of grits. I will only give my take on the scallops. They were quite delicious, sweet and perfectly cooked, but the accompanying roasted sprouts and mashed sweet potatoes were, for me, too strongly tasting and did not complement the scallops at all well. I found myself trying not to let them overwhelm the scallops. If the sprouts had not been roasted to a crisp it might have been better.
The pleasure of going to a good restaurants is to experience the skilled judgment of a chef with a refined palate. This time I did not have that experience. On this occasion the restaurant did not qualify to join my list.
This is a favorite. The food and atmosphere is just right. It's a "go to" choice for us. Excellent menu, top notch service, and a comfortable business casual atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Excellent service and recommendations by our server.
I took five friends to Rusconi's and everyone LOVED their food and service! The salmon was cooked perfectly to order (medium rare) for one individual and medium well for another individual. The scallops where the best scallops in the valley! We ordered the Mac-n-cheese appetizer and a side of brussel sprouts and both were delicious! The salads and soup were also very tasty! The service was exceptional. Our waiter was personable, responsive, and he could not have been better, a true professional. A total of five new customers and ALL will return to Rusconi's! I would highly recommend this restaurant for the excellent menu, service and delicious cuisine.
Food is always so unique and delicious here. Services was good but a bit slow at the end of the meal (but at least we were full and happy) they were very busy, friendly staff, all dishes were top notch, we'll be back soon!
I took some out of town visitors for dinner; they loved everything about the restaurant. Wine by the bottle was on sale but we wouldn't have known this without our server telling us; we took advantage of that. The food was delicious and the server was knowledgeable and helpful. I go there often and was glad that it was impressive to out oft owners too.
As always, the service was friendly and professional. The short ribs and scallops were excellent.
The dessert lovers enjoyed the dark chocolate bread pudding. What was good but not outstanding was the chicken salad. The ambiance was warm and inviting. Bottom line: a great place to dine.
Wonderful food. Waiter was great and support staff was attentive and pleasant. Noise level was too loud for our liking but the food is so good that we'll go back again on an off-night.
Favorite restaurant hands down. Bringing some guests for second visit - another "rookie". Shared the yummy, generous kitchen board. One person had the chicken, two had the special monk fish and I had the salmon. There was not a crumb on any of the plates! Service is always excellent. Half price good wines on Sunday a bonus!
We had a reservation and were seated right Away, but close to the entrance and the bar, so it was noisy. Service was attentive and knowledgeable and food came out promptly. Nice presentation of dishes and food was interesting without being overwrought. We would go back again but ask for a table away from the noise.
Great food, comfortable setting with wonderful service
This was our first time to dine at Rusconi's and we were quite impressed. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is a very nice venue. The menu is not huge, but they have a good variety of items. Every entree that everyone in our party ordered was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The desserts were creative and flavorful. We received excellent service. There was nothing to complain about. This place lives us to its ratings and we will definitely be eating there again.
We made a reservation based on reviews from Tripadvisor. We expected more. The seating was casual and the menu items and prices were not. The food was good, but not what I expected.
Monk fish was to die for.
The food was amazing. Wonderful selection and flavors. Beautiful presentation. Great service.
All 6 of our dinners in Phoenix were great, but Rusconi’s was the best.
This is a hidden gem. Food was excellent. We look forward to returning.
Rusconi's is a friendly neighborhood restaurant with great food.
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.
Love the food and service. One of our favorite restaurants.
I have high praise for our experience. The food was delicious and the service was personal and prompt.
We LOVE Rusconi's!!!!! The combination of fabulous food and exceptionl, delightful wait staff AND in the neighborhood, makes it a favorite.
We really enjoyed our meal and evening. Delicious. We live in north Scottsdale so the drive was worth it. Love this place.
