Staff is friendly but the decoration is just terrible: so old fashioned, plastic on the table, awfull. Except the name of Italian dishes, nothing in this place was Italian. I feel sorry for Holbrook: if there is nothing better in town, better avoid staying here. We had spaghetti with tomato sauce: the sauce was way too sweet and the parmesan... More

As was reported by others, ignore the exterior.......We walked in the door and we're surprised at how cute the dining room was. Lovely menu included everything from steak, Italian choices and wonderful pizza. Give it a try. I doubt it will disappoint.

I stopped in here for dinner after a day out at Petrified Forest natl park. It is a smaller establishment but that doesn't take away from the great service and food. I was greeted right away by a pleasant waitress who promptly seated me. I ordered the chicken parmesan and while waiting I was brought out some great garlic bread... More

Way overpriced for mediocre food and slow service. Four people split two pizzas and two apps and it cost $80 in a town where if you blink you'd miss driving through. Waiter was friendly but slooooow.

Once again we entered town (Holbrook, AZ) with low expectations for a good meal and were very pleasantly surprised at the Mesa Retaurante Italiana. The veal was tender and delicious, the wine selection was very good, the dessert was outstanding, the service (Beatrice) was very attentive and well trained and the classical music completed the ambience. The exterior has the... More

It can be hard to find good food in a town this size but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here. We had lasagna, pomodoro capellini and a cheese pizza and everyone was happy with their meal. The sauces are obviously made from scratch. Only the garlic bread disappoints but I don't think you can expect... More

Dinner choices in Holbrook are slim. We opted for Mesa Restaurante Italiana because they were #1 on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Our waiter Larry was very pleasant and attentive. The food was piping hot. We had three entrees and enjoyed them all. They came with a salad which was fine and garlic bread we thought was kind of... More

My kid had the cheese pizza, and frankly it was one of the best cheese pizzas I've tasted. I would have traded in my food for that pizza.

We enjoyed our experience at the Mesa Restaurante Italiana. The service was excellent and the delicious food was well priced. Plus they have a full bar! It was very busy the night we were there, but our waiter kept up with everything. We're glad we went! The next time we visit Holbrook, we will be sure to eat here again!
