Join us at Rusconi's American Kitchen for our special Easter menu from 10:00am to 3:00pm
Sunday, April 1, 2018
We go to Rusconi's a lot. It is a very popular place and always full.
This time when booking I made a separate phone call and made a point about having two men in our company who have hearing problems. Asked them to put us in a place where the sound level is not so loud. They seated us in a spot which was a middle of most noisiest areas in the room. As I mentioned before we go to this restaurant and know the seating pretty well. This couldn't have been worse.
Food is always good as is service.
They just should listen to people's wishes. Young ladies at the door don't seem to understand the hearing problems but they should listen when being asked for a particular table.
Always enjoy Rusconi's but on this chilly, windy night they had the doors to the patio open (heaters for patio diners) but no heaters for indoor diners. Made for a quick dinner.
As always, the food was delicious!! Service and attention to detail excellent. Our waiter ,Holden, superb.
Rusconi's is a neighborhood gem of a classy restaurant which consistently serves great food at reasonable prices with an attentive wait staff.
Family from out of town
Excellent food and great service!
We loved our waiter, Fritz! He made the whole experience very fun and festive. He was attentive without being bothersome.
one of the best dollar for dollar restaurant experience in N. Scottsdale.
Across the board Rusconi's is a solid choice for any occasion. They are
professional and not just going to school like many competitors.
Food was delicious, a little on the expensive side. Salad was quite small but good.
One of our favorite places to eat. There are a lot of restaurants in the valley but none checks all the boxes as well as Rusconi’s. I highly recommend for any occasion or no occasion at all. Simply delicious!
Service usually great.....this time slow and below average
This is our second visit and we had a wonderful time. Food was great and the service fun and attentive. We will be back again and again.
The waiter didn’t tell my husband the plate was burning hot, so he got a blister from touching it. The coffee cup had lipstick on it, and a huge crack, so it leaked everywhere. The food was good.
I enjoyed dining at Rusconi’s, however, with a 8 o’clock reservation, we did not get seated until after 8:30. We dine out a lot and we have found that when a restaurant, fails to honor our reservation, they offer a complimentary dessert or appetizer. We enjoyed the ambiance, our waiter was great, but this caliber dining spot, should offer some compensation, when they fail to honor a reservation and you’re seated 40 minutes late.
We’ve lived in Scottsdale for almost 20 years and this was our first time! We were celebrating a lot on our table! Great experience and we’ll be back for sure!
The dishes at this restaurant are wonderful. Very creative and they hit the spot. It is a very comfortable place. Can get a bit noisy up front near the bar, so if that is a problem ask for the back of the place. One nice touch was that the chef and owner came by our table to introduce himself.
An overall special experience with great menu,wonderful wine selections,quick service and super waitress.
The food, smells, service and design are five star. Ran into the owner and he was outstanding.
Great! Half priced bottle of wine night was fantastic!
The food at Rusconi's is exceptional. And, the service outstanding. We have been twice and both times we were very happy.
Great as usual!
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.
