It is unfortunate when a nice meal is ruined by SCREAMING children...not normal banter and verbalizations, but SCREAMING. Alas, they were locals, so I didn't matter much. The place is attractive and the help staff attentive.The food is good; the salads are mixed greens and very nice. Wine selection is passable, or maybe a little better. This evening, I ordered...

Let me begin by saying that I would NEVER stay in Holbrook AZ again. This is a has been town that is an economic disaster. It is shabby, dirty and looks generally unkempt and unsafe with pan handlers and street people in abundance. Luckily our hotel was closer to the Interstate and not in what is considered the center of... More

Tried this restaurant based solely on a recommendation from the hotel manager.. Small, friendly and inviting place.. Their specialty is Italian, but we were in the mood for steak. The wife and I both ordered a ribeye with a baked potato and salad... A cocktail and a beer.. The food was outstanding and the prices reasonable.. BTW the Italian that... More

Let me start by saying I'm not a big eater, but this was ridiculous. The smallest portion I have ever seen at an Italian restaurant. Usually you get so much pasta there is no way anyone could finish it. This place was the exact opposite, not only was I able to eat ALL of it, I was still hungry after... More

this is an excellent alternative to the bland food offered by the fast food options in town. the food was very good. Both my wife and I had veal. The portions were generous without being crazy big and the prices were very reasonable. None of the mains were more than $20 and that included bread and a salad. the wine... More

The clerk at our motel highly recommended Mesa Italiana. When we first stepped into the restaurant it had the look of a somewhat high end restaurant. A quick look at the menu showed it to be a bit above what I would call mid price. I planned to order ordinary Italian dishes but our server encouraged the special and because... More

Very crowded - likely due to the quality of restaurants in Holbrook. To be honest, I preferred my meal at the Denny's in town. The food was okay Italian fare, but quite pricey. Think we paid as much for our meal as we did for our suite at the hotel I suppose I'd recommend this place given the limited choices... More
