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

Small world the hostest told me she knew,my cousin, then the owner came over and was sharing with us that she once work in my family's restaurant and come to find I've known her brother from his autobody shop 30 years ago. Having a couple drinks and snack we were not overly hungry... 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

Bread-hot on the outside, frozen on the in. Filet-Asked for MEDIUM...served very rare. Asparagus-Rock hard. Strange specials, none of which were appetizing. Smoked trout on bruschetta? Really? Very undercooked calamari. We went last year and had a great meal for the family. Wonderful chicken dinner (airline), which they no longer have. Anyway, this time was a let down and we... More

Mezzanotte serves up modern Italian dinners that are memorable. I last dined here with my husband and parents in October 2014. My mom and I started with the spicy Sicilian martini, an orange infused cocktail lightly spiced with peppadew sauce. It is an absolutely brilliant drink that I had been fondly recalling for 6 months since I dined there. We... More

Sometimes you discover a great new restaurant and have a fantastic meal. Everything is perfect from service, soup to nuts. Well Mezza Notte was it. We tried it a second time and were beyond blown away yet again at the quality of the service and the food. This is our favorite place by far in the Capital District. The short... More

My wife and I eat here fairly regularly. The sausage and clams appetizer is just great. I get it every time, can't miss. Last night I had Chilean Sea Bass. Perfectly prepared and seasoned. Crisp on the outside, flaky moist fish in the middle. It came on top of mashed. Very, very good. My wife always gets lobster pappardelle. Consistently... More
