A favorite place of my families with some tips for you

I have been going here for years every once in awhile and I've noticed something that might help you out. Durning the week sometimes I noticed the food quality is not as good as it is on the weekends. Must be the crew in the kitchen.

I have to say that we always have a good experience at Mezzanotte. The service is good,the servers friendly, & the atmosphere is nice. The prices are moderate for North Jersey, and we really have enjoyed all the food we have tried here.

We used to eat here a couple of times a year. In the past the food was good and the service was friendly. The past couple of years it has gone downhill. Regulars get much better and friendlier service. We have noticed this on numerous occasions. Staff is not as friendly and the quality of the food has gone down.... More

We always enjoy the food here. Among our favorites are the spaghetti and meatballs, the fried calamari, the stuffed artichokes, and the tiramisu . We have found the service to be excellent. Both the friendly owner and the wait staff welcome us back with a smile whenever we are there. It is our go- to Italian BYOB!

My husband and I love Mezza Note - there are many menu choices plus an array of appetizer and entrée choices at all meals. I love the ambience and fantastic attention by management - it feels as if I'm important and respected as a continuing patron. I love all the meals I've had, including the fish entrées, pasta entrees and... More

We've been to Mezza Notte a number of times and while the food quality is quite good, service can be an issue. For example, at our most recent visit, 2 people had the wrong orders and it took over 45 min to bring the food out and this has happened on previous visits. Granted it was late on a Saturday...

I visited this small comfortable BYOB restaurant for lunch with friends and I was pleasantly surprised. The building is a white cement block building on a corner, in front of a strip mall with good parking. Lunch is a fixed price menu for $10.95. It includes soup, salad, a choice of several pastas, veal, chicken, and fish entrees, along with... More

Went for a Birthday celebration on a week night and it was empty except for two other couples but service was slow. I ordered fish and my husband raviolis. It was just ok. My son ordered fettuccine Alfredo and it was horrible. Basically it was noodles with butter. Can't say I would go back.

This is a great local restaurant where the food is always consistent and the service is great; you will always be treated like family. The menu is extensive with a variety of pasta, seafood, and other dishes; there's also daily specials. So bring a bottle of wine with you (or two) and go enjoy the delicious food.
