On arrival without a booking for our mid-week visit to Mezza, we were given the choice of seating in the bar with live music, in the more up-market dining room, or on the patio. We chose the dining room, but the three spaces all looked good and would all probably be excellent, depending on our mood. Service was prompt, friendly,... More

Service still outstanding, but new owners changed menu and kitchen staff. Food is now simply average and they took many dishes that made Mezza Luna "special" off the menu. Pizza appetizers still good. Mezza Luna is off of our list.

We were fortunate to dine at this lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. After listening to some cool jazz on a hot night just by Mezza, we shared a delicious penne pasta with smoked salmon, ahi tuna, and a bottle of Seghesio zinfandel! Excellent dining with value. Although the restaurant was busy, we never felt rushed. Thank you, Carlos, for... More

I will definitely go back to this place. They have a wonderful attitude and their food is very good. They have a lot of good options from nice Italian dishes to homemade brick oven pizza.

I must admit that I dine at Mezza quite frequently; however, I never tire of the menu, which is always supplemented with a variety of specials, both appetizers and entrees. The atmosphere and décor and wonderful, with diners having a choice of being seated in the "formal" dining room, the outdoor, covered patio or the "bar" area (actual bar seating... More

On my last night visiting my sister in Jax, we were wanting a nice dinner to top-off my trip. We decided to give Mezza a try since she had been wanting to go for a while. The host that took our reservations over the phone was very nice and accommodating, and upon arrival we were promptly seated outside on the... More

Incredible food -- varied, fresh, local seafood! Good music entertainment several nights each week, valet parking much of the week, terrific service!. For families with young children, pizza-making early in the evening -- so cute. Can't wait to go back!

First time here with my father in law who lives nearby. We had 4 adults in our party and a reservation for 8 on a Saturday night. We arrived right on time glad to see valet because parking could be an issue due to the location. Our table was ready and we were seated almost immediately. The wine list was... More

Mezza is about five blocks from my house and it's always a treat to go there. It's where the neighborhood goes for wine and good food. They also have an awesome martini menu. I've never had a bad meal there, and usually order one of the fish specials. The service is always great. There's a nice courtyard where you can... More
