I've never felt the need to write a review on these sites but we decided to have dinner here on the recommendation of a coworker and this restaurant has become our new favorite spot. While we waited for the other couple we decided to have a drink at the bar and the bartender was extremely pleasant and she made a... More

We were celebrating my sister in laws birthday and made reservations two weeks in advance. We arrived 15 minutes early to sit at the bar and have a cocktail. After being somewhat ignored and having to ask for a glass of water with a bourbon twice we enjoyed our drinks. The place was very busy and our table was not... More

Hands down the best in Albany. Ask for Val or Tim as a server. They are great. The sea bass is to die for!! Great selections and great wine list. Lemoncello parfait is a must! Great atmosphere, white table cloth with great ambiance !! Love this place!!

Went here with another couple to celebrate a birthday. Let me start with the waitress, SHE was great!!! But right off the bat, she had to inform us that they were out of many menu options from a very small menu, so it didn't leave many options to choose from. I selected the gnocchi and my friends selected the escargot.... More

Our second vist to this fine place couldn't have been better. It started with the Fried Calamari which was exquisite. We travelled to Cape Finisterre Spain in July and had some amazing calamari but now we have a place to get the same quality only a little closer to home. Can't wait to return.....

We've lived in town for years, but this was our first experience at MezzaNotte. The wait staff takes this snub personally, and will try their best to make sure you never dine anywhere else. First impressions: the dining room interior is dim to moderately lit, so cozy, but menu-readable. Seating is split between bench/table seating on the exterior of the... More

We typically come to Mezza Notte for special occasions. We have always enjoyed everything we have ordered. This last visit was no exception. We ordered a special appetizer that was a bruschetta with home made lamb sausage. It was phenomenal. The Mezza Notte salad is a favorite and is made with mixed greens, figs, hazel nuts, apples and fried goat... More

My husband & I are fortunate to live close by. We visit MezzaNotte at least 3 to 4 times a month for dinner or drinks. Always superb quality food and fun atmosphere! Owner & bartenders recognize us and thank us for our business. Waitstaff is professional and well-trained. Food is FABULOUS!!!

Interesting menu! Coming in from California, we were looking for some delicious Italian cuisine in a lovely environment with great service and MezzaNotte fit the bill! I agree that this restaurant is a "sleeper" and really recommend it for "foodies." The brussel sprout dish was so unique, as was the ravioli, which was artfully presented. I would recommend sharing some... More
