Sedona isn’t exactly a fancy-pants place. It’s more for new agers and outdoorsy people than those who prefer to put on a suit and tie every day. So when we told a couple different people we were celebrating our marriage up there, they all suggested eating at Cucina Rustica in the Village of Oak Creek, which was apparently the place to go for such things. As evidenced by its name, Cucina Rustica is an Italian place with a fair variety of options at slightly pricey, but mostly reasonable prices considering the place is for tourists.
After much thought, I opted for Lisa’s Luscious Lasagna. This slice of classic Italian came with bolognese sauce, Italian sausage, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. The result was quite a delicious mix of Italian deliciousness. I can’t say I was happy with the broccolini and cauliflower garnishes, but luckily I didn’t have to pick them free from my meaty slice of Italy.
I would definitely recommend Cucina Rustica for anyone looking to up the fancy level on a trip to Sedona. The atmosphere is great, the staff is incredibly friendly and although the food can’t be called exciting, it certainly gets the job done.
