Cucina Rustica Dahl & Di Luca (7000 Hwy. 179 Ste. 126 A, 928/284-3010, $13–28) is a crowd-pleaser. The salads, soups, and meat dishes are delicious, but it’s the fresh, homemade pasta that has made the restaurant a hit with Sedona  diners. Try the linguine Bolognese, tortellini with portobello mushrooms and white truffle cream sauce, or the gnocchi with slipper lobster meat and a creamy tomato vodka sauce. Eat at the bar or have a seat in the romantic dining room, which features a twinkling, starry sky.
