The best Holbrook has to offer!

My wife and I had dinner here based upon the recommendation of the hotel desk clerk. The Italian Food was surprisingly good. The restaurant sits next to a sports bar, in fact the night we ate there that was how we got into the dining room. The service was very slow the night we were there, they... read more

The desk clerk at the hotel recommended the Mesa. The food was delicious, a variety of inventive dishes, and Italian standards. At least two specials every night. Reasonable prices, great service (thanks Larry). It shares a kitchen with the grill next door, so we had steaks the second night. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It gets busy so go early or... More

This popular Italian restaurant in Holbrook does delicious Italian. We started with artichokes to share which was plenty as a starter and nicely cooked with a lemon sauce complemented with garlic bread. Salads were pretty standard but beautifully fresh and crunchy. The shrimp scampi on linguini was light and delicate whilst the Chicken Jerusalem was tender, served with shrimp, artichokes... More

Good service, reasonable prices, variety of foods. Excellent place to dine in such a small middle of nowhere town like Holbrook. BTW, "tripadvisor" wants to know if this was one of the BEST MEALS you've ever had in a restaurant. I can't even come close listing all the great meals I have had in my life. This is a really...

We walked down the street to pick up take-out after a long day of hiking and driving. Following the recommendation from the hotel, we checked this place out. Stepping in the front door right into the dining area was a little awkward, but we were giving menus to look over and we soon placed our order to go. Since the... More

Food was decent and probably homemade. That said it was on the bland side for us. MORE GARLIC! The parmesan cheese was not grated fresh. The decor was very homey aka grandmas kitchen. For the price would probably not choose to eat here again.

Nice, popular Italian Restaurant. Food was excellent. I had the best veal I've had in years - no gristle. My wife's shrimp scampi was good - lots of garlic and some red pepper (This is New Mexico). Several Italian wines, and others, too. The bread was very good. Service wasn't real fast except by Italian standards. We were in no... More

This place was recommended by the Front Lobby staff at the Best Western. We followed their lead and went on over. The food was good and the servings fair. Prices were not too bad and the service was good in spite of a crowded seating area. Good selection of food for all kind of appetites and tastes. I will not... More
