A faux-Tuscan villa interior, complete with a bar in a grotto, makes this the most romantic restaurant in Sedona, and the excellent Italian food makes it that much more unforgettable. Be sure to start with calamari, which is some of the best I’ve ever had. Pasta dominates here, and portions are big. I like the gnocchi with mushrooms and truffle cream sauce; veal dishes are also excellent, and there are plenty of good seafood, chicken, and vegetarian dishes. The eggplant Parmesan and portobello alla griglia are real standouts. Keep in mind that in high season (spring), this place gets packed with tourists and service can, at times, be brusque.
