Great food and service. We enjoyed sitting outside on a warm balmy evening listening to guitarist. Tyler, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful in explaining menu items and specials. Although not in the heart of Sedona, it would be worth the drive from anywhere...More

We really enjoyed this Italian restaurant walking distance from our hotel. The service and food were both great, and we enjoyed our little table with a view of the pretty entry courtyard.

The food was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. They are known for their veal dishes -- and they didn't disappoint. My veal was very good! They also did a great job of accommodating my gluten free restrictions.

they do have gluten free alternatives. I believe they will have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. However there are so many other places that will have that offered too. Perfect time to visit Sedona.

It depends on how busy the restaurant is. It might be too busy on a Saturday night in High Season but only the kitchen can determine that. The number is 928-284-3010
