Had dinner. I had fetuccini alfredo, husband had mixed seafood with angel hair pasta (name of dish escapes me). They offer several dishes with half portions, perfect for me. Service was great, coffee tasty!

No complaints here at all. The place was comfortable, the staff was very pleasant and helpful, the food was very good, and the prices were reasonable. I'd go back.

Have eaten here many, many times and it's always consistently good. Start off with a cocktail or glass of vino, doodle on the brown paper table cloth with crayons (comes with cloth napkins!) while you wait for your meal which won't take long. Service is good with a friendly wait staff. You can purchase their Italian dressing and their sun... More

The bread was great. Salad was terrible. Vegetable soup was good and hearty. The pasta was horrible which was bolognese. The strangest sauce with really bad flavor. The server had recommended it so we thought great. We shared it and didn't finish it. If I had to return I would try the pizza maybe it would be better because the... More

Meal was good but not a wow. Restaurant was cold, needed to wear a scarf. We are visiting from NJ and decided to try an Italian meal.

It really doesn't take much to be a good place to just have a breather after a hot day out or on a cold, rainy day. Friendly, efficient staff, quick orders out on the table, good food to nurse the tummy and a comfortable place to chat and be able to listen to conversations across the table. The brown paper...

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

Mazzotti's on the Plaza features an exquisite menu, with exciting daily specials. In addition to beer and wine, we offer a full service bar. Seating at the bar in Arcata provides a comfortable place to wait for friends or a table. The atmosphere is warm and inviting; as always the food is outstanding. Everything on the menu is available for take-out. For information or reservations for parties of 6 or more, please call ahead. We look forward to seeing you!
