We went on the recommendation in the EZ route 66 guide who calls the place exceptional. Either the author has never been to Italy, doesn't know anything about food or is friends with the proprietors. The restaurant is overpriced and by no means Italian. The most basic Italian things like bruscetta or pasta were messed up, the bruscetta (which is... More

This is an excellent place for italian menu. It does not have a great appeal from outside. But, as you enter the dining area you get a good feeling. The place was packed when we visited. The pizza and chicken entree was great. The service is absolutely outstanding. Don't forget to ask for discount!

We were staying at the Quality Inn, just up the road, and when I asked the gal there at the front desk where SHE would go out to eat at, she quickly and heartily recommended this place.

No kids menu. Said we could order half orders of pasta which ended up only being $3 off. Kids pasta was $10! Per kid. Pizza was good. Make kids get pizza to have decently priced dinner.

Food was great from Lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs to chicken Parmesan. Not large portions but delicious. We had a large group and the place was full. Server was not very attentive which knocked down a star to me. I know a previous review asked about gluten free, which I didn't see. But they do have vegetarian options.

Italian restaurant, food was homemade and delicious! Would highly recommend it, we were staying at the Lexington Inn and it was recommended by their staff! I wish it was located near our home, it would be my favorite restaurant, try it you will not be disappointed.

There aren't a ton of options in Holbrook and we went based on a recommendation of our hotel staff. The service was slow but pleasant. Food was just mediocre. Pretty pricey for a meal we didn't really enjoy.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Colorado. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel so we gave it a try. We were NOT disappointed. The service was excellent, the food is fabulous. The waitress was friendly and we had a great and enjoyable meal. When in the area - and want Italian - this is the place.

Holbrook, Az is a tiny town that has all the usual fast food places, Denny's, and Pizza Hut. Mesa Restaurant Itatiana is a Diamond in this town, amazing food and service cannot say enough after a long road trip not to have road food!
