It's clear that Cucina Rustica takes care to prepare delicious and satisfying food; our meal was delicious! I also loved the eclectic ambiance, romantic lighting, and tasteful touches make all of the rooms feel unique. I would definitely return to this restaurant if I'm in the area again!

Our bed and breakfast hosts suggested we try Café Rustica, and we are SO glad we did. One enters through an arbor of miniature lights. Once inside, I felt as if I were at a restaurant in Italy. The medium/large room in which we ate featured high ceilings and perfectly chosen artwork. The atmosphere was friendly and not-at-all stuffy. The... More

We had dinner here and the menu is everything you want in an Italian restaurant. We had not made reservations so opted to sit in the bar area instead of a 45 min wait. The bar was actually quieter than the noise coming from the dining room. Food was great and dessert was so yummy!!!! We had lavender and lemon... More

The atmosphere is lovely, The classic type guitar music was not obtrusive to good conversation. Appetizers were tasty and generous, then it went down hill. The special of the day was rack of lamb with roasted potatoes and asparagus, the most expensive thing available that night. The lamb was tough, bones were not cleaned making it hard to cut. The...

Too many vacation destination restaurants have a 'one and done' attitude in their approach to tourists. That is NOT the case at Cucina Rustica. Will always include this restaurant in our Sedona visits. Excellent food, service, and atmosphere!

I wanted something other than Mexican food one night, so we stopped at Cucina Rustica on our trip back from the Grand Canyon on a Friday night around 7pm. With no reservation (and really not dressed for such a lovely restaurant), the staff was friendly and accommodating, allowing us to sit at a high top by the bathrooms in the... More

Our party is from CT and RI and we know good Italian food. The Cucina menu matches up to some of our best back-home places. We loved the pasta and Bolognese sauce, but the menu offers much more than traditional red-sauce Italian. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed his/her order.

This popular and noisy restaurant has very nice staff and pretty good food too. Make a reservation if you can, and don't expect to have a conversation.
