The greens were exc quality and very yummy. My poor husband had steak tips with risotto. Risotto was amazing however he was served 4 tiny steak... More

We arrived and were seated outside. the wait staff was most attentive and our server seemed to love giving advice and suggestions. We ordered drinks ....I had a sea breeze with grey goose served...

This Ristorante is a favorite of ours. We had reservations (you should on a weekend). It is not a large dinning venue, but decor is warm and inviting. Nice bar area with a varied wine selection (sorry no draft beer). Dine in the main room, at the bar, or in a small outdoor area. The menu is not large, but... More

VERY SLOW service even when not busy. Food very average and not at all worth the price. Wait staff disappears so it is very hard to get things you may need after your meal arrives. Staff does not seem to value customers. There are other choices in the area so I would recommend skipping this one.

We usually stick close to home but decided to give it a try. We tried the restaurant a few years back and never returned. We were very pleased that we did. The waiter was great and had suggestions for us that were perfect. The portions were not too large, just enough. The short rib was amazing and the clam sauce... More

My wife, my daughter and I went to Mezzanotte a few days ago to celebrate a family event. Service was friendly and quick, the menu imaginative and the wine list broad and reasonably priced. Although there is no children's menu, they graciously put together a delightful girl-sized plate of spaghetti bolognese for my daughter. My only complaint is that the... More

To celebrate our daughter's college graduation, six of us had a delightful waiter, Val? and a delicious dinner with appetizers and entree dishes which were fish and seafood ( mussels, octopus, salmon, red snapper), rabbit and chicken based. Everyone loved the food, however I think the chicken dishes were the weakest of the entrees at our table - although that... More

We were upstate visiting and went to MezzaNotte because of Trip advisor reviews. It is a very nicely decorated quaint restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. It is slightly expensive but worth it as the food is very well prepared. Great for special occasions.

My wife and I have been coming here for a few years now. Sometimes special occasions with the whole family and other times just enjoying a small plate or apps with a glass of wine at the bar after a busy work day. Food is always wonderful and the staff very attentive.

What a find is MezzaNotte with it's female executive chef Rachel. The atmosphere is wonderful with this warm buzz of happy people eating exquisite food! There is no detail too small for them. I reserved a table through OpenTable and noted that I wanted a place where my friend and I could talk. They put us in a booth that... More
