It was my birthday party and decided to order a takeaway rather than cook for 13 people so we decided on Mezzaluna. I was dubious because we had a big order, 13 pastas & pizzas with garlic pizzas at 8pm on a Saturday night. I thought maybe the standard wouldn't be the best as the restaurant would be really busy!... More

We tried Mezzaluna on a recommendation of their amazing Happy Hour deal of £5 for a selection of dishes from their main menu. We both ordered pasta dishes my carbonara was just ok if not a little lacklustre and a tad watery... other half ordered tortellini which arrived dangerously bubbling hot but once cooled he thought was rather nice. We... More

Despite our taking over the entire restaurant and having to cope with 45 diners at one go, the staff literally did come up to the plate (LoL): superb service from the friendly staff - very good, reasonably priced food and a great atmosphere all made it a night to remember.

A great wee place close to the train station. The happy hour deal did a selection of mains for £5 and was great value. We had pizza and pasta and both were great. There is also some seating outside if the weather is nice- a nice way to start of the evening with a leisurely drink from the bar. Staff... More

Visited whilst being in Carlisle for a couple of hours before catching a train down south. Service was quick and efficient, and the lunch time "Happy Hour" is incredible value for money. Good portion size and very high quality flavours. We had the penne and the risotto, both very good indeed. On a nice day the tables outside would be... More

Was recommended here by family & friends. It's a great wee place, not too many tables so I'd definitely recommend booking ahead especially if you're thinking of an evening booking. They have an amazing happy hour which includes a wide selection of mains for only £5 between 1200 - 1900. The starters were good but given the size of the... More

Went with a large group (16) and they still managed to take our orders and serve us in a reasonable amount of time. All were pleased with their dinners.

The food and service were very good. Plenty of choice, and very reasonable. You have to book as it is always busy.

I visited La Mezzaluna on a Sunday night during happy hour, there was a nice selection on the menu and the food was top class and excellent value. I ended the night with dessert, which again I couldn't fault. Overall an exceptional meal for under a tenner, and the staff were very pleasant.
