When we attend a performance at the Mesa Performing Arts Center, we like to dine in Mesa before the show.

Owners are great people and so accommodating. I have celiac and they have a gluten free menu. My husband had mahi mahi over mango rice and loved it. I had SW Cobb salad. It was also great

Went just before closing time. Great selection on wine and beer. Staff visited with us as if we were long time customers. Right next door to the Mezona Hotel.

Our first selection, an hour wait, found Il Vinaio. Had a linguine dish. Excellent! A glass of Chardonnay to start followed by a glass of Cabernet franc. No dessert. Too full. Nice clean establishment, fairly quiet, local greens and bread. I liked and you may too.
