Station 66 Italian Bistro was, by far, the best dining experience of our trip through northern Arizona. I loved everything about this place. Service was top notch,the interior is spacious and cool, there’s an outdoor patio with music, and most importantly the food and drinks were great.
Wine and beer flights are available for $15 each. All wines served are locally produced by the Grand Canyon Winery and all beer served is from Historic Brewing Company. The beer was unique. I enjoyed the darker ones like the Joy Rye’d pale ale, coffee porter, and Piehole Porter. My least favorites were the more sour brews such as the Prickley Puss and Blood Sweat and Cheers sour ale. But, as a group, it made for a unique flight.
On the menu, there were eight types of bruschetta. Out of the four we tried the jalapeño jam and goat cheese showed best with it’s balance of sweet and spicy flavors. The one with roasted peppers, goat cheese and balsamic was also a hit.
Pizzas are a Neapolitan style pie with a soft, chewy crust. The Sinatra pizza ($19) was the way to go. Tomato sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms and onions, along with pepperoni that we added, was a savory collection of flavors that hit the spot.
We ended the meal with yet another pizza — the Sweetie pie ($9). Topped with nutella, mascarpone, cocoa and strawberries to make a sweet and satisfying dish. The meal was so full of carbs, it only made sense to end it that way, too.
A kid’s menu is available for those traveling with family.
With a focus on using local ingredients, not to mention local wines and beer, Station 66 was the kind of unique, inspired spot we were looking for. It’s the kind of place that would fit right in at any number of larger cities. And, here in Williams it’s a must visit dining destination.
