The menu ranges from gourmet wood-fired pizza to nightly specials featuring fresh fish and seasonal game.

Wherever you eat, choose an accompanying wine from Mezza extensive list or try a cocktail from the full bar. Reservations are accepted and all dishes are available to go.

We recently ate a dinner here as a group. The menu was limited but everything was very good. I had a pasta and shrimp specialty that was wonderful as a great salad. However the brownie and ice cream dessert was wonderful. The location was also great in a very walkable district by the beach. Again everything was great.

We live in the neighborhood and frequent the many restaurants in the area. We've eaten here 4 times and each time it's gotten worse. The first time was very good and last time was subpar. We don't mind spending $25- $39 for an entree buy we expect outstanding food and service. The food is just ok, portions are small and... More

We went for a family dinner at Mezza. Our waitress was pretty cold and minimal. At some point my wine got knocked over and she didn't even offer to help clean it up. My scallops over pureed sweet potatoes were delicious, as was the pizza. My boyfriend and his Mom got the pasta with seafood and were not impressed. It... More

It's an interesting restaraunt with an artist an meats twist. Recommendation is to order those items. Thinking it was Italian, I ordered pizza. Tomatoes were under ripe, goat chees a bit over powering and fresh mozzarella not identifiable. Lacked flavor, though wonderful crust. Took off the toppings, at the crust, it was that good. Colleagues got ragu special and chicken... More

Business dinner for 9 on a Wednesday evening. Place was busy hosting both locals and out-of-towners. Excellent wine menu and appetizers were delicious! The wood fired prosciutto wrapped pears were the best! Cesar salad was perfect with crisp lettuce and just the right amount of dressing. For the main course, I had the house made pappardelle which was excellent. A... More

This is clearly the nicest resturant in Atlantic Beach. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. Prices were good, especially given the high quality of the food. Wine selections were very good. I will back for sure.
