My wife and I try to visit Sedona every couple of years. We were able to extend a recent trip to recharge for a few days in Sedona. Our go to hotel is the Hilton Report at Bell Rock. I do need to write a review of our last visit. But this review is about Cucina Rustica. We have eaten here on every visit and have never been disappointed. This year with outstanding weather we were able to eat out on the patio. Don't miss out on the patio dining experience if possible, but inside also has a wonderful atmosphere. Excellent selection of wines (she's a white wine girl - I'm a red) so the buy the glass wine list is always important. You will not be disappointed in that department. The large variety of items and specials is a testimony to the Chef and Management. The casual pace of the meal service always adds to our enjoyment of this "You need to check it out" restaurant just a little bit out of town. Enjoy.

My wife and I had a great experience, thanks to our waiter, Scot. We have several food allergies and he took the time to maneuver us through the menu. I had a pesto pasta that was very good and my wife had salmon. The tiramisu was the best I've had in a long time.

Great ambiance and even some soft live music to add some romance to the night.

The meals were not the usual - steaks, fish,etc. All very good. Service was relaxed but excellent. Prices were reasonable.

We spent our last night in Sedona at Cucina Rustica. Since we had been to its sister restaurant Mariposa's in the beginning of our trip, we knew we were in for another great meal. The food was excellent and the outdoor seating was very nice. It was a great end to our anniversary trip.
