Me and my colleagues had dinner at Mazzotti's Ristorante Italiano on Friday night, the night the Plaza had the Christmas Tree lighting. Three of us ordered full orders of lasagne and one had the fresh cod. Service was snappy, friendly and attentive. The lasagne dish is really made to serve a small family so come hungry! The ragu is homemade... More

Good pasta and pizza, and the big menu means everyone at the table can find something satisfying. Waitstaff was super friendly and attentive. We would definitely come back!

Maybe there is better- but if there is, I haven't tried it. Best southern italian in Arcata, for the price. Do try.

Friends dropped in from out of town and decided to go out! Our first choice was closed so we went here instead to check it out. I had a seafood pasta that was amazing. Friends had salads. Not overcooked and light on the species. Portions were grat and it was not too loud as so many places are. Will definitely... More

I am very picky when it comes to Italian food but this restaurant satisfied me. The homemade raviolis were tasteful and i loved the tomato sauce. This meal also came with a veggie soup and bread. The prices are $14 and up.

Lovely Italian Restaurant with view of the Plaza in Arcata. So many HIPPIES AROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lots' of homeless people as well, I felt like I was visiting downtown LA. Anyway: I ordered the Cannaloni with Ricotta cheese, spinach topped with small amount of red sauce with the crepe crispy at the ends. Not at all the way Italians would serve it.... More

I had always gone to Mazzoti's in Eureka for their great calzone. This time I had a late lunch and opted for the oysters. WOW

Everything in Arcata is hippie, except this restaurant, which is an average nice Italian one. Portions are good, taste is very good, so pays for every penny.

If I were reviewing based on a food alone, I'd give it 5 stars. Really good Italian food at a very reasonable rate. But the service was awful. It took forever for us to order. Once we did order, eventually we got out appetizers. But I had to inquire about the drinks. Eventually the drinks came. Our dinner came in... More
