So the outside of this restaurant is a bit misleading. Very funky from looking from the outside in. Don't let it fool you! Food was very good and service quite hospitable.

This doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's very nice on the inside, and the food is great. This isn't a very large city, and doesn't look like a city that would eat out very often, but the place was almost filled. Don't pass this place up, it is a treasure find.

When my husband said lets eat there I was very skeptical! Outside appearance is deceiving. Inside linens and fresh flowers. A great lunch menu of salad, bread, and entree for only $8.95. Everyone was happy with their choices,. Our server Larry did an excellent job. Great choice, 7 in our group were cheerfully accommodated.

We used recommendations from the hotel and from tripadvisor to decide to have dinner here tonight. We were the first diners of the evening so we got all the attention. I ordered chicken cacciatore and my husband enjoyed the Alfredo with chicken. Both included bread and nice fresh salads. We also ordered a half carafe of chianti. It definitely was... More

Arrived in Holbrook for the Bucket of Blood race the next day. The restaurant is nothing to look at from the outside but was pleasantly surprised when we entered. The server was very pleasant and I ordered the special that evening...pasta with seafood. Wow....I was surprised not only on the size of the portion (HUGE!) but the taste. It was... More

We arrived after 8 and were seated and served promptly. The food was good and our server gave us a suggestion for "local breakfast place"

Don't judge a book by a cover; it may not look like much, but this is a fantastic little Italian restaurant with friendly, courteous service and excellent food. My wife reckons she had the best Alfredo sauce she ever tasted, I can't recommend this place enough!

We stayed in Holbrook one night and this spot was recommended by our hotel. We always like Italian and the food was excellent, but a tad overpriced for the portions we received. Like another reviewer, we found the service to be a bit slow, but we may have just visited on a busy night.

I have eaten here many times on my business trips an diver night stays in Holbrook. Totally out of place in a town like Holbrook, it should be in a large metro area with lots of fine diners. Found out only last night that they offer 5% discounts showing your room key. I have recommended the Mesa for years and... More
