Put this place on your to-do list....Or shall we say to-eat...

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... read 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

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

If you are looking for some really great Italian food this is the place to come. The servers are friendly and can answer any questions you may have about the menu. The food is awesome and I have never had anything I didn't like. Be sure to order the tiramisu for dessert, it is the absolute best I have ever... More

When I first went to MezzaNotte 4 years ago I was in love at first sight. Everything from the atmosphere to the food was out of this world. I went home thinking about the Lobster pasta and when I could go back again. The calamari melted in your mouth, the wine was wonderful. I couldn't wait to bring family and... More
