I love their baked lasagna! Try to get in here at least every couple months - when I have time. It is one of the best restaurants in the area. They have a wonderful wait staff and they make you feel right at home.

The staff were phenomenal, very friendly and attentive. However the food was subpar. It tasted like stuff someone with average cooking skills could make at home. I wouldn't go back but they seemed to do alot of business, so maybe my boyfriend and I just ordered the wrong things.

We have ate here a few times and it is always good. We typically get pasta of some sort but several people around us get Mexican. They also have pizza. The menu is strange but still relatively small. Probably 6-8 pasta dishes and maybe 10 Mexican dishes. So even though they are opposite cuisines they do them well. They also... More

I understand that the point is Mexican and Italian food but they need to focus on one or the other because both types are suffering because of this "fusion" approach.This place was so bad I almost left. Had I not been accompanied by a friend, I would have.

I enjoy going to Mexi-Itali Inn. The food is good, reasonably priced, and a nice atmosphere. We always get good service. The staff is friendly and come by often to check on us. I highly recommend this place.

Have been eating there for years. Always consistent. Love their food but not the chicken fajitas. Otherwise, great place to eat.

This restaurant has been around for a long time, and the folks of the area enjoy this place so much that it is almost MANDATORY to visit Mex-Itali at least once a month. The food is ample in portions and always served hot. The preparation is in the STYLE of Mexican and Italian – sort of accommodating to family palates;... More
