Very good food, wine and service although a bit pricey

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... read 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.

My husband,mother in law,and another couple came for dinner. My mother in law had the rabbit and she said it was delicious.

Christmas Eve, lovely setting. We were immediately told the menu is limited, no special requests, no substitutions, etc. Ok, I get that...but to press so hard first thing, it's like well are you sure you want to be open? That being said, errors were made in our orders and some in our party had to eat long after others. My... More

First time at Mezzanotte and we're going back as soon as our baby sitter is available again. Mussel appetizer was awesome. Filet and Ahi special were both fantastic. The Ahi's wasabi cream and ponzu sauce was excellent. If apps and dinner weren't enough, the Limoncello parfait dessert was enough to make me return. I have only had this once before,... More

Warm atmosphere and very attentive wait staff. The menu was a nice change from your regular chicken parm and ziti. I had the rabbit which the breast was slightly dry but the leg was quite heavenly. The risotto was excellent. My only compliant is that the portion size might be a tad small. I wasn't starving but I could have... More

We ate here for my wife's birthday with 5 other people. The service was outstanding. It's a small, warm and welcoming restaurant. The food was excellent and came out quickly. Their appetizers are great too. If you like calamari try it here. Portion sizes are good as well. Their veal is a must have. Some of the best in town.

My wife and I have made Mezzanotte a regular stop, especially when I'm too tired to cook and want a weekday break. Last week I tried the risotto for the first time and it was spot on. This past Tuesday we stopped after hitting the polls for election day. Had the Crazy Lasagna. It was great. We enjoy the 1/2... More
