Stopped here for dinner based on the recommendation of the hotel desk clerk and the ratings on TripAdvisor. What a mistake. The description of the special was a chicken breast with artichoke, mushrooms in a garlic wine sauce over pasta. Sounded yummy so I ordered it. My husband ordered cannolini. The sauce on the cannolini was watery like milk not... More

This little restaurant was just as good as others claimed. The waitress on 9/26 was super. All 4 of us had different entrees and they were all so delicious. Good sauce. Do not be deceived by the smallness; they give you a personal touch. While it was crowded we waited comfortably in the Mesa Sports Bar next door until a... More

We were tired after touring the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert and didn't want to return to the rv to make dinner. What a classy restaurant: linen on the tables, neat and clean establishment. Shared the daily special and had leftovers!! The sauce on the entree was homemade and excellent blending of spices. Service was impeccable!! Save room for... More

We were both hungry for pasta. Great food, great service. Don't be turned away from the exterior. It's yummy!

We were here on a Saturday night so it was very busy and we had to wait a long time. This is probably a local hang out, very rustic with a bar area with pool tables and juke box (they probably allowed dancing) and then the restaurant part. We had a very good italian meal and it was priced reasonably.

I'm not a big fan of Italian food, but we were told that this is the best food in Holbrook, so we gave it a try. The restaurant gets fairly busy, the majority of the of the clientele seems to be couples and groups over 60. The staff was very nice and service was good. We both had streaks, which... More

The food was only fair to good especially with the cost per meal. Also, service was very slow and not very attentive to customer needs. I would probably not go back to this restaurant.

They were recommended by our motel. We shared one of their pizzas which was delicious. The staff was very attentive and friendly. They were very busy, but made sure our ice water was always full. We appreciated that after a long day riding in the desert. A good find in Holbrook.

I'm Italian and love Italian food. This place is not fancy but it's somewhat like an old Italian restaurant playing Sinatra etc. We ordered takeout and split the combination plate of manicotti, lasagna and stuffed shells. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was great. Their sauce is really good. They have also found the secret to making their sauce non... More

I'll start this off by saying that we love stuffed mushrooms. We honestly order them whenever we see them on the menu, but we probably wouldn't order them again from here. They were bland and the texture of the stuffing was lacking. Now, on to dinner. I had the stuffed shells in white sauce... That was by and far the... More
