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

Friend & I shared the duck meatballs in a mushroom brandy sauce and the freshest tasting calamari. ( you must try these two when you go). Enjoyed an appetizer portion of the lobster pappardelle and the rabit ragu pasta ,and then moved on to the tiramisu with a double espresso and a perfect cappuccino .Service was knowledgable and friendly.

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

I recently visited MezzaNotte for dinner with my husband. We love the duck meatball appetizer. The short ribs are the best I've ever had. Their Gnocchi is fabulous. I would recommend making reservations. Overall, I enjoy this restaurant very much!

This was a Saturday evening dinner with 3 other couples. We had reservations, and they took us right in, even though we staggered our arrival times. Italian, how can you go wrong with that? We had Caesar salads to start, very good...if don't like anchovies ask them not to put one on the top! My hubby had the Bass special... More

We have been here a number of times and have always had a very good meal. The service is professional and pleasant. On our most recent visit, the restaurant was extremely busy; the waiters had a little bit of a problem keeping up. Other than that, we had a lovely meal. I do want to mention that it is a... More

Great food in a great athmosphere. Cannot beat 1/2 price pasta dishes on Mondays. Try the rabbit ragu. Try the linguini and clams. You won't be disappointed; especially at 1/2 the normal cost.
