Good sized portions, delicious flavours, beautiful decor.
Hate the TVs.
Music level was too high for me.
Waiting staff were attentive and pleasant.
The upside area is covered over and really attractive.
One of my favourite places to eat in Penrith and best in the Emu area.

This restaurant introduced me to some very delicious food. This food was absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive eager to share their food knowledge and suggestions on how to prepare and eat their food. The staff were also very accommodating to the specific dietary needs of one of my guests.
It was the best Lebanese food I have tried. The baba ganouj dip and pickled vegetables (often too salty and previously not enjoyed) were the nicest so much so that they made me like these foods again. Itza Mezza Bar & Grill is so good it is my new favourite eating place. Other cafes and restaurants could learn a lesson about customer service from this restaurant. Thank you for a truly memorable eating experience one I am not likely to or wish to forget.

I told the staff 'this was the best lebanese food that we've had in the area'

I cannot fault this place. My partner and I stumbled across it when we were trying to find somewhere for a much needed impromptu date night during covid. They had availability and great reviews so it was a no brainer.

The staff were welcoming and attentive, food & drinks came out quickly and at high quality (even the tomatoes on the bruschetta were fresh and not soggy like other places!) and the ambiance in the outdoor dining where we sat was on point. There was more people dining inside rather than outside so it was very quiet but I can imagine it would still be a really lovely experience when busy.

We came back for the second time again just 2 nights ago and brought my in laws with us, they loved it just as much as we do. They liked another lebanese place in the area but I think we've converted them :) thanks again Itza!

Great food, great drinks, service was a tad slow when we were seated.
Food order was to close from starters to mains and didn’t get a chance to finish our starters.
Over good though

Food was good and staff very friendly. Bit of a delay in serving my meal but they apologised profusely and gave me the meal for free. Would return again if in the area and would recommend.

We were very surprised when we entered the venue, from outside it looks a little small, however once you walk in the door its large and beautifully decorated.
Dining outside I felt like I was in an overseas destination.
Staff were super nice and food was amazing, highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Place looked inviting but it was a little cold inside. The Lebanese bread was a little stale and maybe needed to be grilled a little. It would have been good if the shared main came out after the shared entree.
Flavours were fantastic and the service was good. A rainy evening so the restaurant was pretty quiet for a Saturday night. Something on the menu for everyone.

We stepped outside our comfort zone and tried itza mezza from our Freinds recommendation. The food was so fresh & amazing I didn’t want to stop eating. Great portion sizes even the kids meals are decent sizes. We all had so much food & walked out very full. Value for money & great staff & friendly atmosphere & definitely recommend this for a night out with a large group or just date night.

Had a lot of options on the menu and was very tasty and good quality food. I had really good table service as well. The only thing I could say that could better the restaurant is the service at the bar. I asked that I was ready for the cake To be brought out and she looked at me like she didn’t want to help or wasn’t happy. As it was busy and probably a stressful night i understand but it was just not professional or welcoming.

Great food. Service can be improved significantly . Asked at least 4 times for bread and finally had to get it myself. Desert did not arrive for ages as order did not print in kitchen. It was great when finally arrived.

The food was excellent and the staff were friendly. The set menu on Valentine’s Day was great value for money.

Our only criticisms are that we didn’t know there was a set menu as it wasn’t published on the website, and the staff weren’t coming around to tables regularly to take drink orders.

Above all, we will be back soon because the food was incredibly good and we enjoyed our experience very much.
