After stopping to spend the night in Holbrook on the way to Palm Springs, the motel we were staying at recommended 3 restaurants. I checked them out on Trip Advisor and decided to go to Mesa based upon your rating. What a pleasant surprise. The place isn't much to look at from the outside, but once inside, we found it... More

This restaurant is walking distance to several hotels. I read many reviews and most were great ratings. I had manicotti and it's just like mom makes. Sauce is perfect as well as the garlic bread. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is comfortable and staff is great.

Tried the Mesa Restaurant upon recommendation of a friend. Arrived on Thursday evening it is a small dining area but comfortable. I always order chicken parmigiana in an Italian restaurant they usually can't mess it up. My meal was over cooked and possibly frozen chicken patty. Other members like the food they ordered but the drinks came out a little... More

We had a wonderful meal. It reminded me of the Italian restaurants of many years ago. All that was missing was the candles in basket covered Chianti bottles. Good service from Bernice and good, hearty, Italian food. What more could one ask for.

This is a small-town, family-run restaurant, with Frank Sinatra and opera, plastic tablecloths, and a classic southern Italian menu. It brought us back decades to the neighborhood places in NY's Little Italy and City Island. Could the food be better? Sure -- but given the context, it was great. Excellent salad, surprisingly good wine selection, and pasta sauces that were... More

First, it seems all of northern Arizona has no Italian heritage and no authentic Italian restaurants. Mesa is a good example. I had plain old spaghetti and meatballs. Three bites of the spaghetti and one bite of meatball ended the meal and sent me to fast food row. The spaghetti was way over cooked. Soft and mushy. "Al Dente" is... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to try this Italian restaurant for dinner which is a rarity in this area. We were really hoping it would live up to the hype but unfortunately it failed miserably! I had the chicken alfredo and was hard pressed to find the chicken. The sauce had little or no taste and the pasta needed... More

The service was very friendly & the food was excellent! The place was very busy with locals at 1:30 on a Wednesday - always a good sign. Lunch plates were perfect portions. I had manicotti & my husband had alfredo. Alfredo was deliciously creamy, and manicotti was yummy ricotta tomatoey goodness. Next time through we will return :)

Traveling on 40 and decided to stop for lunch based on the reviews I read. It was an excellent decision. I had the seafood special and my husband had the spaghetti with meat sauce. We both cleaned our plates. It was a cloudy, cool day and lunch was hot and fresh, with a salad and bread. Yum!! Would definitely recommend... More
