A group of us stay at the Holiday Inn, Charles Town when racing at Summit Point and we like to vary our eating during the 3-4 days we're in town. The front desk at the Holiday Inn recommended Mezzaluna to us a few years ago when we were looking for something different.
With a number of paisans in the mix, we were a little skeptical about going for Italian in W.VA but we quickly got over that at this place.
Service people are very friendly and accommodating. The kitchen is able and capable of making requested changes in food without any drama or added charges.
The biggest problem we've had in the past is just finding the darn place! We know it's in a small mall area, so parking is not an issue, but it's so low key you can drive right by it several times before you see it. Look for CAFE up on wall above the location, right next to the Food Lion and you'll be fine.
We've enjoyed the salad, garlic rolls and all the pasta entrees we've tried and with 4-6 of us here at anytime, we've done a lot of taste testing.
The food is fresh, well made and the prices are quite reasonable. Yes, the ambiance is not that of great dining...for that you might want to try Dish in downtown Charles Town, but be prepared to pay about triple for your meal there.
Mezzaluna is the real deal...terrific food, nice sized portions and reasonably priced. It's become one of our favorite places to eat in when we are here and all the people we've sent there have come back to us with rave reviews. You'll like it.
