We had been to Bisbee in early January, and returned about a month later with friends. We stopped at Contessa's because it has dog friendly outdoor seating, and our friends had brought along their pup. Although it was a bit of a chilly afternoon, we...More

We enjoyed the walk up the hill and the pleasant atmosphere sitting on the patio. Food was good, and service was friendly. The music didn't do much for us, but it was not intrusively loud.

We were quite happy with our lunch at Contessa's. First, the service was perfect. There were plenty of food choices on the menu too. Price was reasonable for the area. The only suggestion I would have is to have hot sauce available at the tables.

Food was very good, service was Ok. One tip, if you order appetizers with the entree order ask them not to bring all at once. We ordered our appetizers and entrees at the same time and everything came out at once. Other than this little...More
