husband always has the steak and I usually go for the salmon. Both are always delicious. Somewhat expensive but what can you expect in a tourist town.

Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Music was live and the right amount of volume. Ambiance was dark, warm and cozy. The kale salad was by far the best kale salad we have had. We got the chicken parm and wish it was breaded...More

Pasta angelica was very good. Veal saltimbucco was not. I probably spelled those wrong :-) Featured appetizer was tasty but not worth the $16 price tag. 2 meals, appetizer, and 2 non-alcoholic drinks, $90 with tip. I won't hurry to go back.

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
