BEST MEAL AND RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO!!!! If you don't enjoy your experience I'll buy your dinner.

I have been to hundreds of establishments, and this is hands down the best overall restaurant I have ever been too.. Accommodating, outstanding service, and impeccable Sicilian food. This review will sound like its coming from an owner but I am not way affiliated with MezzaNotte; it was just that... read more

We decided to have our anniversary dinner at a new (for us) restaurant so we ventured out in the pouring rain to experience a truly upscale establishment. Our waiter Brian was very knowledgeable & attentive. Even though the specials described sounded interesting, we decided to order off the reg. menu. For appetizers we chose to share the delectable Brussels Sprouts... More

We visited for the first time and will definitely return. Our meal was perfect from beginning to end, with an extensive menu and wine list, perfectly prepared dishes, and friendly service. We were a bit early, before the dinner rush, so our service was prompt. Attractive décor and a view of the open kitchen; nice bar area. The bar gets... More

I'll start by saying I will definitely be back. The food and service, 5 stars. I found the decor pleasant enough but it wasn't memorable hence the 4 stars overall. (really should be 4.9) As I read the Menu and Specials, while trying not to drool all over them, my mind quickly forgot about the pleasant but average dining room... More

Used to eat there often but the prices got to high and the drinks were really expensive. For average food you would spend over $100.00 minus tip. Not the best

I've enjoyed dining here on more than one occasion for special events and the God I'm in the mood for some great cuisine. While I didn't have time to dine in, I was pleasantly surprised to find out I could take out. The lasagna was superb and was seasoned to perfection. Highly recommended!

We started with the Calamari Diavolo which was delicious. My wife enjoyed the Vegetarian Gemelli, heavenly to artichoke lovers. Our waitress's suggestion to add 3 jumbo shrimp elevated an already perfect dish. I enjoyed the Rigatoni Siciliana which was perfectly prepared with the just the right amount of heat. Chef Michael stopped by our table, which we enjoyed and appreciated.... More

If you are looking for a restaurant that is sure to satisfy your palate whether in search of classic fare or a more eclectic approach to casual fine dining then Mezzanotte should be on your list. Having eaten in fine dining establishments in many cities this area restaurant is a gem. It has the fare without the higher end prices.... More

Came up this little treasure by accident on a Friday night and was presently surprised at the unique offerings at this small specialty ristorante. I started with a plate of pigs ears, yes, you read correctly. I used to eat these pickled at my Italian aunt's house as a child. The chef prepared them in crispy strips with baby jalapeno... More

My husband and I went to Mezza Notte after reading on the website that appetizers at the bar were half off from 4:30 to 6:30. We got there just after 6:00pm and the sign in the bar said the half price apps were 4 to 6pm. When we said the website said 6:30, the bar tender just said that they... More

We recently changed the prices on six of our menu items to reflect the increase in our costs. This is only the third time in eight years we have done so. These price changes were only $1 or $2 each. Unfortunately, our webpage did not get updated until three days later. Also, a couple of menus at the bar did... More
