Why we do what we do
And what the heck is curious country Italian?
Growing up in New York, my dad would cross the city for the 'right' tomato for a recipe. That was only if it wasn't already growing in his garden. He knew which church was selling home made goodies on which weekend like sausages, who was selling the best meats and cheese, and what day to shop for it.
Some things you can never replace but we try hard to make the kind of food dad would have driven here for. Our soup stock is made right here. We add the veggies when you order it. No soup pot warming and overcooking everything. The bread you're gonna be dipping in that soup is a mini grilled cheese, on homemade bread.
That's just a hint of what we do here. When we say curious it's to remind you that not all Italian food is red sauce and mozzarella. Sometimes it's just quality ingredients prepared simply.
How did we end up in Sedona?
The wish...Upon two stars...
The Christmas Eve of 2013 we drove to Sedona and had dinner at a local favorite restaurant. It was the first Christmas that none of our children lived at home so we decided at the last minute to escape from Phoenix for dinner and then drive back home. After dinner, on our way out of town, we each spotted our own shooting star and made silent wishes.
Three weeks later we were asked on Friday night, by our son and his best friend, if we would consider moving to Sedona to open a restaurant? They had heard about an empty spot and we all looked at it on Sunday, just two days later.
Do you believe in love at first sight? The next day we gave notice at our jobs and started packing. Three weeks later we were here. It took four months to gut and restore everything and make it cozy. We shopped at garage sales, thrift stores, Habitat for Humanity stores and restaurants that were closing up.
If you look closely you will notice two small stars in our logo. Now you know why they are there. We had both wished for this that day, but we never told each other about what we wished for until we were already here.
A peek at our Hideaway House
take a peek
We don't follow a book of rules, we made a place for you to be comfortable and well fed. We like home cooked food so thats what we serve. Not all Italian food requires pasta or red sauce. Sometimes the special is just what Mom and Pop want for dinner, and thats always a good thing!. Its your friends house, that's what happens!

Old Guy In Charge
Somebody had to be in charge. Be sure to ask if the OGIC is in the house. He usually is. Mama isn't there as much as Papa, she is either making desserts or posting photos. Sometimes you'll find her wandering around, chatting with guests.
Be sure to check out our story, where we came from and how we ended up here in beautiful Sedona.
We're Always Listening
Our goal is your experienc
We have traveled a bit. We know that sometimes you just want some home made food. Like food you could get at your Italian friends house. We take pride in making all your favorites right here.
Mamma makes the desserts, Chef makes the soup stock, the bread is baked in the mornings. Italian food isn't always red sauce and cheese. Sometimes its quality ingredients, simply prepared. Manga Pisano!
It takes a minute to find us,
But we promise, it's worth the work.
Just like our reviews say, don't let the outside fool you. We are a two level establishment! So many guests leave never knowing we have another level! Our lower balcony has equally spectacular views and a cozy tree house feel, away from any trace of the hustle outside the Hideaway House.
Three patios and two inside dining rooms. Full bar and quiet TV's for those big games.
Our music is acoustic, our vibe is relaxed. That great hiking outfit is welcome at our House.
