REVIEWS OF Rusconi's American Kitchen IN Arizona

David

Excellent. Great Service, Great food.

Mark Glowacky

Good service and food.

Henry Borges

Fantastic service, our kind French waiter was very attentive. Wonderful food, the truffle Mac and cheese and goat cheese fondue are heavenly. Mussels were excellent and so was the burger! I highly recommend the chocolate bread pudding.

Gary

We've been an avid patron of this restaurant for over 3 years. We usually come here to celebrate special occasions, and I should say, they keep getting better and better. The food is always fantastic and have never disappointed us even once. Highly highly highly recommend Rusconi's!

SeanCee

I was very pleased on my recent trip to Rusconi’s. The place is modern and comfortable but not over the top. The Server was attentive and friendly and not overly obtrusive. Overall, I think the menu is inventive but also standard enough that any number of picky people could have a pleasing experience here. I started with the Heirloom Beet Salad which is peppered with Amish Blue Cheese and pine nuts. It was very tasty and just what I expected. I also felt that it was well seasoned, though some may think it was a bit salty. I’m certain however, if you are sensitive to salt that the kitchen staff would be happy to accommodate. They had a Lobster special that sounded yummy, but I had my heart set on the Grilled Loin of Lamb; served with Squash Risotto, Carrots, Goat Cheese Crema, and Corn Jus. In the words of Mary Berry: “Scrummy”! I asked them to prepare it as the Chef would. It came with char on the outside and perfect medium rare inside. I can’t tell you how many times I have ordered meat this way at restaurants, only to be disappointed with the result. Not this time! I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat it all, but I scraped my plate clean! I enjoyed the flavor of the Squash Risotto but felt that the texture was a bit off. That may have been because of the squash emulsion but I do prefer my risotto with a little “tooth”. However, it didn’t stop me from finishing every bite! We skipped dessert on this visit, but I can tell you happily, that I will be back with my friends to dine here again.

Michael Taube

This restaurant never disappoints. Food is foodie quality. Save room for the seasonal budino for dessert. It's worth it!

Jon Goetz

Loved it--great service could help us with food and wine choices. Food and drink were all wonderful. Only drawbacks were that it is a bit expensive and we were seated right by another table.

Serena Uible

I went for lunch. Interesting menu. I got the mussels. They were good, but I wouldn't order them again. Some bread, lots of mussels. Woulda been better with fewer mussels and added veggies. Shrug. My fault for ordering the wrong thing. With tax and tip $24 - stupid, expensive mistake. Nothing wrong with the mussels just .... Lunch would have better if better balanced. Service was very good. I might well go back. Their salads looked great. Next time. It is a charming place.

Gordon Hulpieu

Excellent food. Rhonda totally took care of us

Kim Churdar

This was our first visit, great service! The food was amazing! I had the vegetable bread pudding, my husband the short ribs! Great place! We'll be back!

Marcus Kelley

This place is THA BOMB! No joke. I had the best culinary experience if my life here. Duck, brussel sprouts...everything! Usually, when I eat here, not only do I clean my own plate with complete focus, but I sample off others' dishes at my table. I can't recommend this place highly enough. GO HERE!

Marybeth Pallante

Great food great service

Charles McAlpine

This is one of our favorite local restaurants and has been for many years. The food is amazing, the staff (Fritz, Rhonda, Hanna, Craig, Rex...etc) are awesome. Most of the food is organic, natural and locally sourced when available. The atmosphere is upscale but approachable and feels more like an intimate European Bistro than the large over-the-top places that seem to be popping up in the valley. The Salmon, Scallops and Braised ShortRibs are all delicious. The menu changes with the season and some old stand-by are gone.., but always plenty new to try. Of the restaurants in this area this is by far the best food. The chef could be more personable, but considering he does such a good job hiring.., maybe he doesn't have to be! A perfect place to take an out-of-town visitors to give them a taste of the local scene!

Alan Faulkner

One of my favorites. If you like scallops... give theirs a try.

Darion Clah

good food...

Jason Gonzalez

The food is amazing here and service is equally as good. The only reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 is because happy hour drinks and food only apply if you sit at the bar. We thought that was lame. Other than that, the overall experience was awesome. We'll definitely be going back. Hopefully with a whole house happy hour in place.

Gibson Johnston

Sarah was fantastic on the phone, she was very friendly and accommodating for such a busy restaurant!

Rebecca DeMarco

Can be considered pricey, but you won't be mad for spending money on food here. Good food with really great flavor! Cocktails are good, too.

Jessica Claudio

Very rarely am I so full, yet still order dessert and almost lick the plate! Rusconi's food blew my mind - incredibly beautiful and even more delicious! The salad was perfect, with ripe mangos, fresh mozzarella, and seasoned chicken. I had a few bites of my sister's short rib, and that was heavenly! The trifle mac & cheese is the best I've ever had, so creamy it tasted light yet flavorful. For dessert, we got the cheesecake and bread pudding. I've never liked bread pudding in my life, but this dark chocolate bread pudding was to die for! I don't even know how to describe it, just eat it and you won't regret it.im sure I'm going to be dreaming about it in the future.

Katie Bridwell

if you love brunch this is the place to be. Great deals on Bloody Marys and Mimosas as well!!Try the shredded pork omelets. Very Tasty!!!

Nancy Pero

Great place for Sunday Brunch!

Kaila Strong

I've been going to Rusconi's since they opened, wow it's almost been two years now I believe. Absolutely love it here! The rustic atmosphere, the selection of high end ingredients, delish dishes, seriously one of my favorite spots. The chefs are amazing, the bartender rocks it and the service is very attentive. Been here for happy hour, after work dinner and lunch as well. Great for a date night, business lunch meeting or a fun brunch with girlfriends. Check out Rusconi's if you're in the Paradise Valley area or really consider the drive, it's worth it!

Mara Rankin

Great restaurant with creative dishes.

Kathy Cecchin

Rosconi's never dissappoints!!

Mark Speno

Celebrated our anniversary dinner there last night. Everything was five stars including our waiter who was charming and knowledgable and the bottle of wine that was perfect. Our reservations were at 5:30 and every table was busy. Still, we never felt crowded or rushed. Every item on the menu is a must-have. Michael Rusconi doesn't miss a trick with this home run signature restaurant.

Ashley Powell

The first time we tried Rusconi's was when our son was home on Christmas Leave from the Army and the second time was after Valentine's Day since we both worked. Our meals were excellent and didn't disappoint. Our server was courteous and had great recommendations from the menu. Their menu has a nice variety and they offer specials as well. They also have a variety of mixed drinks, wine, and beer including local microbreweries.

Brandon Weninger

Simply the best! Food is always amazing and service is outstanding! Any time I’m in the PHX area this is a must!

Lynn Schepp

Fabulous menu, current trends, friendly, clean and wonderful staff. Medium to high priced items.

Jerry N.

Wonderful food! Had the special, which was a rib eye with grilled foie gras that was delicious. Soft shell crab, and goat cheese appetizer was also really good. Service was excellent, our server was funny and attentive. Great time!

BreAnn Paskett

Tasty gin and tonic. Unique appetizers. Scrumptious main dishes.

Josh Anzicek

This is the best restaurant I have been to in Phoenix. The food was amazing (I had the buffalo, but also tried several appetizers and entrees with my family / extended family.) The waiter delivered (by far) the best service of any restaurant we have visited in our multiple trips to the area. Our favorites from our last visit were: The fondue appetizer, the buffalo entree, the “kitchen board”, short ribs, and the kabocha squash and goat cheese bread pudding. All of these dishes were excellent. I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience.

Sharon Lukich

Wonderful surprise to stumble across this hidden gem.

Mo Brown

Fantastic service and wonderful food. Such a cool place.

Jon Norris

Good food. Great dessert

Jon B

Best green chili mac you will ever have. Promise! Good wine, burgers, steak medallions, etc...and then yes...girl scout samoas ice cream!!!

Carrie Holmes

Great food and service

Sandy Stice

WOW....absolutely delicious food. The service and food/wine is outstanding!

Steven Becht

I was there with one of my daughters for dinner on 9/4/19. The food was amazing! Probably the best steak I have EVER eaten in a restaurant, and I've eaten at Mastro's and a bunch of the other big name high priced eateries. My daughter had the salmon and said she loved it. We had a couple of appetizers which were also amazing, Rhonda at the bar was so friendly and provided great service, and Chef Michael even stopped by to talk to us...and he was humble, though he didn't need to be. I highly recommend this to anyone for any occasion. It is a 10 out of 10.

Jennifer Gitt

Rusconis is one of my favorite spots in Phoenix! The menu is unique and changes seasonally. Fantastic happy hour with affordable prices. The food is spectacular, the service is consistently good, and the atmosphere is modern and comfortable. Highly recommend the fondu appetizer. Great for a date night or a night out with friends!

Traci B

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Scottsdale. Their food is always fresh and delicious. Their Sunday brunch should not be missed. $5 mimosas and bloody Mary's OR 1/2 price on bottles of wine. Went yesterday and had the Arizona toast which was AMAZING. Hubby had The Kitchen Benedict and loved it as well. The wait staff is also incredible. They also host wine pairing dinners which are a great value. Oh and their happy hour menu is also incredible. Just go here - you won't regret anything you order!

Lindsey Hall

Great food, cute restaurant!

Tim Hoffman

Excellent dining - excellent atmosphere - great service and good prices. We had a quiet lunch in a not overcrowded stylish place and it was good.

Juan Hickman

My friends and I came here this past Saturday night. Though we didn’t get seated until 30 minutes after our reservation, this was still one of the most standout meals in recent memory. From the service, to the food and ambiance. Everything was incredible. Complimentary desserts topped everything off perfectly!! We are from out of town and had been years ago, I recall liking it, but I think it somehow even got better! We will definitely come again next time we are in the area! Thank you Rusconis!

Adam McHale

The food was brilliant and cooked to perfection. My better half is particular about how her steak is cooked and the chef/kitchen nailed it. Our waiter was very personable and attentive. He was also very knowledgeable about their wine collection and made insightful recommendations which made the experience more enjoyable. We will be returning very soon!

Cecil J

Great place! The food is amazing! Had the Cuban and fries, variety of delicious entrees.

LYNNE CHRISTIAN

Dinner for 3. Soups: mushroom (1) and cauliflower (2). Salmon, lamb and beef medallions. All were excellent. Dessert was a shared lemon merangue tart - superb.

Tim Hadsell

The menu is ever changing and the chief is a perfectionist he stand on the opposite side of the counter of the cooks and makes sure each dish is perfect before the servers are allowed to serve it. We saw many dishes go back to the cooks that didn't meet the Chiefs criteria. The food and service could not have been better. Definitely will be back!

Richard Keil

The food here is amazing. If you get there early, have the special. If not, everything is top notch.

Curtis Nelson

Delicious food, excellent service.

Brian Roberts

Great restaurant! Craig, our server was the best! Great suggestions, great personality, amazing service... Had the beef tenderloin, best I have ever had! Would have loved to have the chocolate bread pudding but came to my senses

Barry R.

One of the best in Phoenix.

Judy Lohr-Safcik

The menu is good but pricey

Dennis Hummel

A pleasant contemporary American restaurant.

Vicki Porell

Good service, nice atmosphere and fresh, delicious food. Can't wait to go back for dinner.

Tina Wright

The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful very nice kind people working there. quite a few people there at lunch when I was there. everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Great place. I will return again . July 2017

Todd Wood

Excellent food!

Jordon Stackhouse

We had an amazing dinner at Rusconi’s. The squash soup was delicious and the medallions of beef was wonderful as well. Our waitress, the maitre’d and busboy all truly cared that we had a special dining experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant and plan to go back the next time I’m visiting Phoenix. We tried several different restaurants when we spent a week in Scottsdale, and this was our favorite. Excellent scallops! Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Tia Byrd

Very good. Food is made fresh. Comfy atmosphere

Harvey Klar

A great place with equally great food. Menu has a great selection. Nice place to bring friends. Very popular and busy. Call for reservations.

Josh Levine

I bring all my friends and clients here when I want to impress them. The foodies in my group are blown away, and the people that just want relax and enjoy 5 star service are beyond pleased. I've been here at least every month for 2 years and can't say I have never been just as pleased as the last time. You will love it !

Dianna Barnhisel

Amazing and unique dinner menu. Great wine. Wonderful service. Great place for a special evening out!

Tova Horenstein

Always a favorite.

C. Loren

Excellent people, food and atmosphere!!! Will absolutely be back. Thank you !!!

John Bustrum

Great experience and amazing food and service... Give it a try

Sandra Price

Kind of noisy, tables a bit close to each other, but the food is great. Did not feel like the waiter paid much attention to my wine preferences, and brought his own instead. It was okay but would have preferred something that met the criteria I gave him.

Mia Holden, MS, LAMFT

Absolutely amazing! The space is so unassuming from the outside and warm and welcoming on the inside. The staff is on top of every need; even at one point appearing with an item literally 2seconds after a table make stated the need for it to the rest of us at the table. We had the 3 different dishes and they were all fantastic. The duck was cooked perfectly, tender and not at all gamey. The pork medallions melt in your mouth and the truffle Mac n Cheese is Rated #1 for a reason....SO YUMMY!! The ribeye with froie gras is a combination that will make you order it again and again. I can not recommend Rusconi’s any more than 5 stars here but if I could it would be a no brainer.

Always very good.Just a little noisy

Vicki Gordon

A friend and I went here for brunch today. We were not familiar with the restaurant because we live in another part of valley, but based on online reviews we decided to try it. It was topnotch all the way. We each started with a Mimosa, a real steal at five dollars each during brunch. My friend then ordered the Short rib hash. It came with two eggs on top, and she also ordered a side of brioche. She ate every bit and declared it fabulous. I ordered the green chili pork served on toasted brioche with a red pepper hollandaise. To die for. And for this southern girl the side of creamy grits was like icing on the cake. Fritz, our terrific waiter, said the secret of the extra creaminess of the grits was attributable to the addition of marscapone cheese. Yummm! This restaurant is a 30 minute drive from my house, and I can’t wait to go back!

Stanley Rosenblatt

Great service, menu versatility ,and reservations on time

Stanley Zukowfsky

The chocolate bread pudding is very good. The short ribs are excellent! Service was very nice.

Richard Kauff

Excellent service and cuisine.

Krissy Meyer

Super friendly and helpful wait staff. Our meal was incredible. Beef Short Ribs in roasted pepper grits for me. Wife had swordfish steal over wilted spinach. Also tasted a sample of a truffle mac and cheese side dish.Great atmosphere. If you like mediocre food in a noisy place don't come to Rusconi's...It has instantly become one of our very favorites.

Exceptional food, excellent service, love going there for a meal with friends.

John Corey

It’s always nice when one of your favorite restaurants, that is just consistently outstanding, adds a little twist and makes things even better. While dining at Rusconi’s the other night and sitting close to the kitchen and being waited on by one of their best, Brian, Chef recognized us as frequent visitors and sent over a trio of desserts. By the way I had their duck breast special and it was off the chart good. The desserts were small servings of peach ice cream, a root beer float chilled dessert, and a tangerine basil sorbet. The last was even better than the previous two with flavors of basil infused through the sorbet and not just a garnish on top. All were spectacular. Not that we needed any reason to come back but truly proves again why this is a local favorite!

Sam Mossey

When the first time and sat at the bar. Had ordered the "new old fashion". It was great, went back for dinner the following few nights later, ordered the same drink and it was different? Had the truffle Mac and cheese, app which was good and the scallops we're also good. Not a bad place, but so far a little inconsistent on the drinks, I'll go back, next time, it will be bar side though.

Alice Daniels

We made a dinner reservation for Rusconi's. Walking in, we were greeted pleasantly by the staffthe bartender was excellent! He was friendly, knowledgeable and did an exceptional job of taking care of the regulars as well as the first timers like us.

Franceen Fidone

Made reservations and reviewed menu on line, 59 pics of food offered.after seated and ordered drinks was given menus for specials for 69.00 per person.menu limited to 5 entrées. Great if ur a fish eater or like scallops. Didn't care for anything on special and no other options to order from.after telling waiter didn't want to order and would like to finish our drinks we would be leaving,very quickly hostess approach our table and said your not dinning with us that we would like you to move to bar so others may take ur table regardless of ur reservation. With in seconds we drank our drinks and felt so humiliated and will never return. It's all about the $ and not the experience or customer satisfaction BAD EXPERIENCE

Jimmy Ulfers

Great family dinner last Saturday night. Excellent service from Rex, food delicious.

Susan Scholler

Love the neighborhood feel of Rusconi's. The food is always delicious and well prepared. We went with the ever popular beef medallions with truffle mac and cheese, and scallops over pea risotto. Service is consistently good and cocktails are on point. But it's the warm chocolate bread pudding that keeps us coming back. And sometimes just for that bread pudding!

John Stinson

Visiting from Minnesota and spotted this gem while hunting a good american chic place for a date night. Not disappointed, although not a wine drinker they have a great selection as well as awesome cocktails. The food, however was a show stopper. Great pairing for unique foods sets it apart from anywhere I've been. Anytime I return to the Phoenix area I will make sure to stop.

Kim c

Sat down right away but no waiter for almost 10 mins. Food was very average. Both entrees really needed more seasoning. Waiter never came back to check on us so that we could ask for salt and pepper. He promised my ice tea glass would be filled when dinner came but that didn't happen until he was picking up our plates. Second and last time. $70 later

Stephanie C

I was surprised at the size of the restaurant from how small it looks from the exterior. The service at the bar was great. Great specialty cocktails and the Mac and cheese were two of my favorite parts.

Steve Kiely

First class wine list, innovative menu, outstanding service in an unassuming strip mall.

Adam Scott

Have been many times. The service has been superior every time. The food consistently grand with all of the creative, careful touches respecting the ingredients you wish you could imitate.

John Cason

Had been a few months since we had been to Rusconi's (as it is a fair hike from our home) but decided to do the mother's day brunch. NOW we remember why it was worth the drive. The smoked salmon was fabulous, my spouse's steak was perfect and my lamb shank was exquisite! The staff is fantastic and Mr. Rusconi is meticulous in the kitchen. We will definitely be making this a regular part of our dining experience in the future. Well done, guys and gals!

Alejandro Pena

Great menu selection and service, a favorite when the in laws come to visit. Relaxed atmosphere with high end feel.

Angel Lugo

The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was excellent. I didn’t give it 5 stars because the chicken was a little overdone and the steak that was supposed to be medium, was medium well. It was delicious despite that.

Elizabeth Montanez

From the service (Chris), to the food, to the attentiveness of all the staff upon entering and exiting and to the final phone call the day after thanking us for our patronage, I couldn't be more impressed...the kitchen staff is surprisingly young, but well trained. We had two perfectly cooked filets and delicious side dishes-the beet salad was so delicate and the crab and shrimp special starter was fabulous and don't get me started on the bit of Heaven called the dark chocolate bread pudding...scrumptious

Guido Stein

The bananas foster pancake is amazing

Lisa Mead

Rusconi's is always great. Dinners are perfect and the atmosphere is inviting. Happy Hour is fantastic with a great wine list.

Dale Bohannon

Really liked this place!

NGN N

Wow! With the countless mediocre restaurants in greater Scottsdale, I was so impressed with the truly tasty, fresh, delicious ingredients that were artistically composed together on my plate. Best meal I've had in a very long time. Server was very kind, knowledgeable & right there every moment I needed anything.

Amy Ward

Amazing! Came here with my girlfriend to meet her Aunt for dinner. She said it was good, but that was an understatement. From the appetizers to the dessert, every bite left my mouth watering for more. They had a special pork belly appetizer over grits. The pork belly was so tender and flavorful and the grits were the perfect texture! For my main, I had the beef medallion over truffle mac and cheese. Words can't describe. Medallion was cooked to order, seasoned just right and the truffle mac and cheese was cheesy and not over powered with truffle. If you need a place, this is it!

Matthew Ault

We've been here on numerous occasions and are always pleased. It's our "go to" for date night. I recommend the Roasted Chicken and the Boratta Salad, if it's available. But you can't go wrong with a single thing on the menu.

Tina B

Awesome brunch with outstanding staff!

Brad Shaffer

I would rate the restaurant higher if I could. We've been coming here for at least 3 years now for anniversaries and birthdays. The food is fantastic, we've never had a bad meal here. I've had most of the items on the menu with the tenderloin medallions being my favorite. We have also done tasting menus which have been fantastic as well. If you like good food with a fairly laid-back atmosphere you have to try this restaurant.

A Berdt

I reserved a table for 4 as we and or friends were going out to celebrate wedding anniversaries. Had never eaten there before and went there because of the reviews. The great reviews were right on. The food and service was great. We will return!

Barbara Joy

The food is always wonderful. The wait staff is attentive and enhances the experience.

sue123 vegas

The food was delicious. Service was great. They did run out of the special at 8 pm on a Saturday night which was poor planning. My companion was a bit unhappy about that. But the alternative suggested was the steak medallions and we added scallops. Delicious and memorable. We will definitely be going back for that dish.

Peggy Saldana

Elegant ambiance. Best tasting food in Phoenix. Wonderful wait staff.

Kevin Delvalle

I had the scallops. They were amazing. Better than any other restuarant I have dined at. Kind of pricey but worth it. Will be returning soon. If you are not on a budget I would very highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed, however, I would also recommend you get reservations as this place fills up on most days, not just the weekends. The food is always excellent!! From the short ribs to the burger every flavor is well thought out!! This is a must visit!!!

Jill Meyer

Rhonda Rocks!

Karie Hicks

This was our first visit and we already have another visit planned! Great service from everyone, the flavor of my lunch was amazing - the short rib sandwich, and ended with a great dark chocolate bread pudding that was so light and full of flavor. Looking forward to going back!

Jeff Wolkove

This was our first time at this restaurant. We came for the New Years Eve special 3 course meal. I had lobster bisque - the best I've had. The rack of lamb was done perfectly and melted in my mouth. Our waiter was friendly and although it was busy, he was very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will certainly be back.

Dewayne Carel

One of those hidden places that you hope no one else finds out about. Daughter found it on Yelp and thought that we give it a go. Wow this place is now in our top five places to go to.

Steven Lasater

I only tried this place last night 11/7 with my son. The seating was a little awkward but we got a good table. The food took longer than I thought it should until I tasted my plate which was exquisite the tornados of filet and my son had the chicken both were very tasty and hot all in all a great dinner. We will be back.

Howard Gerber

Great food, great service

Myron Klevens

Always very good.Just a little noisy

Vicki Gordon

A friend and I went here for brunch today. We were not familiar with the restaurant because we live in another part of valley, but based on online reviews we decided to try it. It was topnotch all the way. We each started with a Mimosa, a real steal at five dollars each during brunch. My friend then ordered the Short rib hash. It came with two eggs on top, and she also ordered a side of brioche. She ate every bit and declared it fabulous. I ordered the green chili pork served on toasted brioche with a red pepper hollandaise. To die for. And for this southern girl the side of creamy grits was like icing on the cake. Fritz, our terrific waiter, said the secret of the extra creaminess of the grits was attributable to the addition of marscapone cheese. Yummm! This restaurant is a 30 minute drive from my house, and I can’t wait to go back!

Stanley Rosenblatt

Great service, menu versatility ,and reservations on time

Stanley Zukowfsky

The chocolate bread pudding is very good. The short ribs are excellent! Service was very nice.

Homemade ice cream sampler was amazing and there truffle mac & cheese was perfect (just the right amount of truffle and not too rich or greasy) we will be back soon!

Danielle Ruffolo

I’ve been coming here with my parents for the past couple years, and I’ve never been to a restaurant that every single time delivers the most exceptional food and best service around. Our waiter fritz is exceptional and always makes our day, he remembers our names and has a wonderful personality. The chefs are amazing at what they do, and I always recommend this place to my friends. I highly suggest coming here, you won’t regret it.

Lisa Brunton

Great ambiance. Casual. Wonderful food! The white truffle Mac and cheese is amazing!! The service was top notch! I definitely plan to go back!

Frank Walker

Wonderful food and service, defiantly will visit again.

Eric Winkler

What a surprise! Expected an other mediocre restaurant like I have eaten before in the greater Scottsdale area. But no, this is probably the best I‘ve eaten for quite some time! I went there with a friend of mine, celebrating her birthday. As I arrived a few minutes before her, I informed our waiter Fritz accordingly. Fritz was the best waiter I have seen in years. So dedicated, full of humor but still very professional. The card is not as big as some other restaurants offering american cuisine, but it had from everything something. Goose cheese fondue, fish, mussels, lamb, duck, beef or just vegetarian. As swiss we had to try the fondue as a starter. My friend ordered a vegetable plate that was not even so on the card, but with all the fresh veggies they offered as side dishes on all the different menues it was easy to create a pure menue with veggies only. I went for the tenderloin medaillons with mac n cheese. To our surprise the manager brought as an amuse bouche as first time visitors what we very esteemed. The fondue was unique, we expected it a little more fluid but it had a great taste. The bread was european style (not white). Her veggie plate had plenty on it and she described it as very healthy. And my tenderloin medaillons were exactly how I like it. The cheese macaroni had not that yellow/orange stuff that smells like cardboard but a fresh light cheese. Fritz knew also his wines and made some great recommendations. I knew my friend does not go for desserts other than an espresso after the dinner, but according my hint Fritz brought her a small crème brûlée with a candle and two spoons. You have to know, that this kind of sweet is getting served almost in every restaurant especially in the french part of switzerland. It was the best crème brûlée for ages! The invoice was a little more than $90.- which I felt was very reasonable for what we got. And I was more than happy to add a 22% tip. Rusconi‘s is now my new favorite when I have guests coming from the old continent, and I hope Fritz will be our server again. He alone is worth the money spent.

Brenda Rauschenberger

Heidi V

Best food I've ever had. Usually crowded for obvious reasons, so make a reservation. The mac and cheese is so good that it is beyond the realm of good. Each bite you are reminded how delicious it is and your brain cant comprehend its delitiousness between bites.

Gabby Walton

Great atmosphere, small portions but great taste!

Michelle Skinner

Amazing! Food was great. Will definitely be back.

Louis Glass

Delicious food (among the best in north Phoenix), well balanced flavors and excellent service, by knowledgeable wait staff. We like going early, as it can become quite noisy especially with the weekday happy hour crowd.

Paula Trush

Delicious brunch options and a good value.

Kathy Skaggs

Loved it the first time the green chili macaroni and cheese wasn't as creamy and the chicken was not as tasty either maybe because we had lunch first time and probably fresher for lunch than dinner but overall this is our favorite restaurant. Service was excellent.

Andy Banks

Get the chef's special every time. They are always awesome!

Heidi Share

Rucsoni's is nothing short of amazing. Beautifully simplistic atmosphere, exceptional service and exquisite food. Rusconis is home to a scratch kitchen that is apparent with every bite. A simple menu provides an array of choices from pasta, beef medallions and the most succulent scallops I've seen. Service here is as exceptional as the food. Our server Hannah is the best; attentive and knowledgeable. Hannah explains menu options as well as specials with the utmost fluidity. I highly recommend Rusconis, it is a beautiful experience

Brock Oxford

Pricy but great food.

S Lee

Excellant Food and Service . Food is always excellant and cooked to perfection. Fresh ingredients everything made to order. All deserts and nice cream made at restaurant. Order Chef Nicks carrots delectable! Service is alway amazing especially with servers Rex and Fritz. Sunday and Monday 1/2 price bottle of wine! It has been my favorite place for four years! Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Kathy Miller

First time here and I was VERY impressed. I had the salmon lunch entry that came with brussel sprouts. Not a fan of that vegetable. The waiter was happy to substitute green beans. It was a great plate. I also had dessert, lemon meringue pie and it was perfect. So a great lunch. (I skipped dinner.)

susan pintel

I The food is marvelous and the wait staff friendly. You really should try the chocolate bread pudding for desert. Wonderful, just wonderful
