Excellent food and professional service. Wonderful pasta and great wine list. The antipasti is huge. I would come here regularly if I lived locally.

Live in Sandy Springs but drove to Smyrna to try this neighborhood spot. Great food. Had the bruschetta and chicken piccata and then a little tiramisu for dessert. All good. Nice vibe. Friendly people. Definitely a popular spot. Wish they were located in Sandy Springs.

But the last time we ate here, a bug flew out of my mussels when the warming lid was removed. Sad to say, I couldn’t eat it at all.

I like the food here. As an ex New Yorker, this is as close to a New York style southern Italian restaurant as you can find in the area. Having said that I will never eat here again. Without any notice or warning on the...menu or website, when I received the bill a surcharge of about 3.8% was added to the bill for "non cash payment." I have never seen or had this happen in any restaurant, and frankly it is outrageous. I do not want to have to bring $200 cash to pay for a restaurant bill. No thanks, never again, and to any reading this review, "buyer beware."More

I went to the first restaurant the night before and met the owner Antonio. Great guy and very attentive to the business. He recommended the duck ragu with paccheri. I went tonight to try their other restaurant and it did not disappoint. Antonio's wife was...sweet but I must say MIca the server was tremendous and very sweet. Excellent serviceMore

Mezza Luna – beware: dead fly on food and bad service I’ll start by saying 2 things: a) rude waitress and did not want to repeat the special of the day while being inconsiderate to my baby and b) found a half dead fly in...the pasta dish. I used to love this place and celebrated bdays twice but after the bad treatment and fly on our food this past Saturday I will not ever go back. IF you want to read the whole story see below. On this past Saturday July 31st we went to Mezza Luna to celebrate my parents 56th anniversary and brought our 16 month old baby with us. The night started ok when they were accommodating about joining 2 tables for us but it got bad when the waitress told me she was not going to repeat the specials as I was attending my baby that was sitting on the stroller and wanted more bread. I will mention that when we sat down first she rushed into stating the and got annoyed when she started to describe the 2nd dish and I had asked her to slow down so I could translate into Spanish to my parents but then she said she could do it in Spanish, so when we switched back to English for my husband and I to listen to her, that’s when she became rude and said she will not repeat it again. I thought that was very rude and lack of consideration for someone that is dealing with a baby. She did not even say are u ready to listen to the specials and was not patient at all, she seemed to be in a rush the whole night and there was no reason for that since the restaurant was more than ½ empty. When I went to the bar area to talk to ask for a manager I was told by a heavy size and tall man that he was the owner and that waitress was the co-owner and the waitress/co-owner said that she had already told me the menu twice and was getting our bread and that if we wanted to leave to go ahead and leave, not any apologies. I said we will not leave and to just forget it and deal with it, although I wish I had but did not want to look for another place to eat at 9PM with a baby at that time. After we resettled in our table, I asked her for more bread for us since my baby loved the bread and she said that no, that our food was already on the way and that they will charge us additional since she had already brought 2 baskets of bread. I was shocked about that when the baskets of bread were very small and my baby already had finished ½ of it on her own. These was also not th bread that they used to put in the table some time back, it was a much smaller portion. Then the worst part of the night came, when my mom was eating her pasta with funghi sauce and sees a bug in the food. It was a fly that was moving up and down the plate very slowly and we just covered it with a napkin and asked the waitress to come and see it. Her respond was I am sorry there are flies that come and I do not have control of that. While there was a fly surrounding our table I told her this is not a fly that just landed on our food, my mom got is from underneath the food and you can see it was almost dead and we covered it with a napkin and I had shown that to the waiter that came to pick it up. I was so shocked about this co-owner/waitress lack of accountability and response to the fly incident, it was to her like no bi deal and she offered to exchange it but at that point we did not want a new dish anymore and were grossed out and concerned about the sanitation in the kitchen and if she would just transfer the food with fly to a new plate and pretend it was new. I was unable to eat my food neither because I got so grossed out and she only offer to take off the food with the fly from the bill. A very dissappointing experience at Mezza Luna, which now I call Mosca Luna (mosca = fly in spanish). Will never go back. Sharing this experience so you are aware of this and make your own judgement if you decide to go there. I will be calling the Health Department to report this incident. I also noted a very low turnout on Saturday. While we are still living in Covid times, the low turnout surprised me. Other places we tried in the area were fully booked, and I wonder if others have been having bad experiences at Mezza Luna lately as I had it this past Saturday. As mentioned, used to love it but no more. Did the owners change? What happened: did service and cleaning went down the drain?More

Second time eating here, the first time we had a waiter that was ok to good, but did have to ask for items and refills that should be normally done. Also, not very engaging. This time same waiter, and same behavior. Also, we made a...reservation and when we arrived , the hostess told us that they moved our reservation by a half hour. Said they called , but actually never did or got the wrong number. The food is ok, service is ok, but not worth going back again.More

We've been going to Mezza Luna for several years now. It has become our go to place for special occasions or just because we want the best Italian food in the city. I was in the restaurant business for over 20 years and I know...it well. They make it look easy, but it's not. The service is friendly, yet professional. The food is fresh and delicious. There are times when after eating the meal the next day from leftovers, I want to go back and pay again. It's that good. Stefano's daily specials are always something I look forward to and I'm never disappointed. Fita took especially good care of us with an exquisite presentation of flowers and dessert.More

Let me start by saying the place that we went to was on spring road it was Mezza Luna pasta and seafood, but for some reason coming up as Mezza Luna Trattoria here...? Anyhow, the free bread appetizer was really good. My wife got the...pasta special with shrimp and I got the Chicken Saltimbocca . Both really fresh and flavorful, as good as Italian food as we’ve had here in the states and reminded us of our trip to Italy. The only reason I get four stars instead of five is because of the value her dish was $28 in mine was 20, tiramisu dessert was another nine. So it was a little bit on the pricey side but the flavor was definitely fantastic. Will be back again, and I recommend you give it a try.More

What a great family run Italian restaurant! A real jewel to have here in Smyrna. Don’t let the term “family” turn you away from thinking well prepared, imaginative dishes served with flair! While kids are welcome, the food is not basic family food at all....Dishes are of a very high quality presented elegantly and tastefully. I was immediately reminded about my years working in Italy and the wonderful meals I enjoyed there. I think MezzaLuna is right up there with food I loved so much. We enjoyed butternut ravioli with sage butter sauce and a “family recipe” lasagna featuring eggs. Both were excellent choices and very much enjoyed. We didn’t partake of appetizers this visit but did enjoy dessert. My wife loved her cannoli and my Nutella tiramisu was delicious! Making things a bit more special was the chef personally waiting on our table and representing his food, helping with selections and in general being visible in the dining room. We will certainly make this a regular dining experience and be sure to take guests in future. This is a real gem of a restaurant and one to be supported by frequent visits!More

We routinely visit this location. Don't let the exterior of the building deter you from visiting this restaurant. Once you enter the doors, you are immediately met by the smells of Italy, the sounds of crooners from generations past (there is usually a live performer),...and great service. Prices are very reasonable given the level of care and authenticity. They have the best bruschetta that I've ever had, the sea bass is excellent, and the wine selections is limited, but well priced and quality. I highly recommend visiting, and I also recommend getting a reservation, even for a weeknight. They are routinely packed.More

Penso che dobbiamo giudicare un ristorante come questo dagli American Standard e non necessariamente dagli standard italiani dagli Standard Americani piuttosto buoni.
