My Wife and I stopped in this evening for dinner and found good and bad things about many aspects of our visit. We were seated promptly, but at a cramped table right up against the kitchen wall, despite there being only one other party in the room, and only one more party seated during our entire stay. Our server was... More

Everything was exceptional, especially the foods that you don't fix at home....the duck meatballs were scrumptious and the rabbit ravioli and the lobster papparadelle were amazing! Service was great, we couldn't have asked for better!

I was invited to a good friend's surprise birthday party at Mezzanotte this past weekend. Our friend's spouse had rented the private room upstairs, which offerred the group space to enjoy the party. Service was very attentive, with coctails and apps including the broccoli rabe, calamari, bruschetta, and lobster pappardelle - all very good and the latter outstanding! There were... More

We had wonderful meals in a lovely, upscale white tablecloth atmosphere. The bread was served with a dip of olive oil & balsamic vinegar as well as an olive tapenade. Our server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu & specials. Some options were things you wouldn't ordinarily find on most menus. A few of the entrees are availble in a... More

We returned to this restaurant for a belated Valentine's night out. Not usually fond of going out on this "holiday" but we had experienced a wonderful dinner here several years ago for this same event. We had requested a booth which is a must in this very busy restaurant if you wish to hold a conversation with your dining companion... More

Had a Saturday night dinner at Mezza Note with some friends after a long absence. I had forgotten, but it is extremely crowded and noisy, and this makes the rest almost impossible to enjoy. It is one large room, with tables close together, and it did not help that we were seated next to a large party with loud voices... More

Went here for New Year's eve dinner as our favorite and usual restaurant was already booked. We now have a new (almost) favorite restaurant and definitely will return. Only disappointment was a limited menu that night, but understandable for one of the busiest nights of the year for restaurants. Service was pleasant and efficient, food was excellent as was the...

Busy but quiet restaurant. A large part of the menu would be challenging for a somewhat picky eater like me but I'd go back for the "Crazy" Lasagna. (And the bread is amazing!)

This is #1 in the Capital District in my experience. Many others are flashes in the pan or just plain stuffy and overpriced. Mezzanotte is a gem. Party of six had six different entrees, along with appetizers and well paired wine selections. Ultra tender and tasty Filet, perfectly cooked duck breast, artfully prepared Chilean seabass, fresh tasty pan seared scallops... More
