Food very good but staff a bit disorganised

Just down the road from the Travelodge where we were staying. Very busy so we had to wait in the sports bar next door for 15 minutes but this was ok as we had an aperitif. Then shown to a good corner table and studied the menu. Good atmosphere that a good Italian family restaurant always seems to... read more

Went here on recommendations from Trip Advisor and our hotel and so glad we did. Larry has this restaurant working like clockwork. We did make reservations prior to arrival. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was wonderful. Others had the seafood pasta special, which was very good, trio combination, also good. My husband had the veal Marsala. This dish is... More

From the outside we thought it was a honkytonk bar and grill. We were in the mood for one of those. Then we went inside and found the ambiance that of a fine restaurant. The food was superb and the service excellent. The folks who live in Holbrook have a gem in the Mesa Restaurante Italian.

Of all of our meals this was the biggest mismatch from Trip Advisor ratings vs actual food. The food was good, but nothing special. We would try someplace else next time.

Surprisingly great Italian in Holbrook. It's not a pretentious restaurant, but it's solid, affordable and good! They even have a good wine list.

My husband and I dined here this evening with limited expectations. No offense to Holbrook but it isn't exactly a dining destination. Nonetheless, we had a great meal, starting with calamari as an appetizer. My husband had veal piccata and I had linguine with white clam sauce. Both were excellent, although my husband said his dish could have been a... More

While the outside of this restaurant might not entice you, once inside you knew why it is popular and rated high reviews. It was almost full when we arrived and remained that way until we left. I told our very professional waiter, Larry, that I felt like I had walked into one of the classic neighborhood Italian restaurants that used... More

I would rate this place 5 stars in a 3-4 star restaurant category. It's quaint, the service was perfect, the menu typical for a Mom & Pop Italian restaurant & the food, very good. A little slice of Italy in the middle of the dessert. We started with tomato bread, which tasted exactly like my grandmother used to make. Our... More

Good service but too expensive for the quality of food. It is well located so you can walk from your hotel. We got eggplant and the cause was not that good.

Good Italian food, but nothing special. A bit expensive, even. Credit cards didn't work because some problems with power supply, but they directed us to ATM across the road.
