We were a party of 6 and everyone raved about their meal! The ONLY thing that didn't hit a homerun was the calamari; it was chewy and lacked any real flavor. The desserts and soups are a little pricey ($15 each) but it's tough to...really complain about the price when both were awesome! Service was professional and impeccible.More

Hostess was decidedly humorless. Amy,the server, on the other hand, was a gem: friendly, attentive, thoughtful, and efficient . She was the very best aspect of the experience. A number of reviewers mentioned that bread. Oh, that delicious bread! Caprese salad was artistically presented and...delicious. Dinner was over-cooked chicken Parmesan with undercooked pasta served with precious little sauce. The lasagna was O.K.. But just O.K.. Next time there might be just an order of bread and a couple beverages- if Amy will agree to be the server.More

This place was a hit and came in clutch as I looked for good Italian food for my wife's birthday dinner. The bread was tasty. My wife got the Lasagna and I got the Salmon and the food came quick and fresh. Also, the Calamari...was good as well. My server was Robin and she was a Jewel. Lastly, the ambiance and atmosphere were perfect.More

Buyer beware!! Be sure to check you bill! Received the bill only to find EVERYTHING was more than stated on the menu. In small print at the bottom of the menu was a statement that prices were subject to change. When asked to talk to...the manager, I was told about the small print and that new menus would be out in a couple of days. No offer to adjust or appease. This is an expensive restaurant and I have no problem paying the advertised price, but to receive the bill and all items were more than stated on the menu, is not right. This is not a good business practice. Most people would just pay the bill and not even look at the prices. You would think they could cover the price increase until the new menus were out. This is about the principal of not truly notifying your patrons of the adjustments to the menu. I have spent a significant amount of money over the years, including my son's wedding rehearsal dinner at this restaurant, but I won't be back..More

This is my go to place when I want to impress a date with my culinary sophistication. The Ora King salmon is the best salmon I have ever had. Combine that with a bottle of Rombauer chardonnay, and you have a superb gourmet meal at...a price that is untouchable anywhere else.More

Came here for a birthday dinner. We were greeted and some of the staff were really kind to my party. When you walk inside it’s absolutely lovely compared to the outside. Everyone adored the food and everything was fresh and the tastes were beyond what...the restaurant promises to give you. I got the pappardelle mignon and would be happy to order it again and again and again because that was one of the best tasting dishes I’ve ever had. Definitely come here for authentic tasting Italian food.More

My first visit here, with a friend who also likes good restaurants. Gracious, knowledgeable staff, beautiful photography from Greece and Italy, white tablecloths, relaxing older music. Menu is so versatile... you could get a pasta bowl with one vegetable and choice of sauce for $10,...up to $28 dinners with duck, crab, etc. The pasta bowls are a great choice. $7 for pasta and sauce, $3 for vegetable and $6 for protein. Each category has so many choices. I had capellini with pesto/white wine with shrimp and artichokes, $16 and exquisite. My friend had capellini with meat sauce, meatballs and artichokes, and I took my husband home linguini with arrabiata, Italian sausage and bell pepper, and he just loved it. Delicious bread served with olive oil/herbs. We had strawberry sorbet for dessert... they have lots of choices, $5 - $8. It was so fresh and vibrant tasting. We will definitely return. This place is special!More

Meeting 2 friends from grade school for a nice, casual lunch. NOTHING went right about our lunch. Our table was missing silverware/napkins and 2 of our bread plates had food stuck on them. Waited 15 minutes for menus and finally asked someone. Water arrived 15...minutes later with the waiter but he never asked if we wanted cocktails, soda, etc. Waited 20 minutes for him to return to take our orders. Informed him that one of us had to leave shortly and to rush our order. He assured us that the kitchen was quick: food came in 30 minutes. Soup arrived with the entree. He forgot the fries substitution so we ordered them again. Never got them. Waited another 30 minutes for the waiter to return. Got our check and he disappeared again. They were not busy; only 2 other tables. We were polite and cordial the ENTIRE time and displayed no attitude. Finally, I stood up as a signal that we were ready to leave and to take our credit card. 10 more minutes. Asked for to-go boxes: he boxed in the kitchen and then mixed the boxes up so that I took home my friend's leftovers and vice versa. The food was okay; nothing special but the 3 of us agreed: we have never had worse service in our entire lives. More than 2 hours. Cannot recommend in any way.More

It's been a few years since I've been to this restaurant. As our 10th anniversary approached, I recalled the rich colors and warm ambience of the Cafe Mezzanotti of years gone by. We made the reservation and drove through the remnants of Hurricane Ian to...dine there for our special occasion. The staff was wonderful. The ambiance not so much. The warm, richly colored interior of the restaurant has been replaced with neutral beige tones and hanging plants. The booth-like table we were seated at had sauce spattered walls and a glass candle holder grubby with dried food and splashed sauces. The food though was lovely, except for the chunk of plastic imprinted with the word "BREAK" on it that was in my seafood dish which I found in my mouth. Thank goodness I didn't swallow it. Our server was gracious and apologetic when this was made known to her. No fault of hers! The only explanation given was that the kitchen was "trying to figure out how that happened". The dish was removed from the bill, although we did not ask for that. We tipped our server based on what the bill would have been with the dish included of course. She was wonderful. All in all I disappointed to find this place is not the place I remembered so fondly.More

This is an attractive, formal, high-end Italian restaurant. We recently met friends here for dinner and had a great meal. The bread was delicious. My scallop risotto was fantastic but I was surprised that the scallops were cut up in the risotto instead of whole....It did not affect the flavor. They have an extensive wine list. Tables have table clothes. Service was excellent.More

Six of us had dinner on the patio, and it was an enjoyable experience. I give this restaurant a 4 star rather than 5 for two reasons: one waitress was really trying too hard to sell us drinks when we just wanted to stick to...water. Also, I asked for another dressing for my salad, but it was served with barely no dressing at all. Otherwise, food was tasty and we loved the bread they served at the beginning of the meal.More

I cannot count the number of times I passed Cafe Mezzanotte on Rt.2 in Severna Park and never stopped to try out the restaurant. My wife convinced me to give it a go for dinner and we were very happy with our experience. We had...reservations and were immediately seated, our server was nice and knowledge about the specials and the menu. The menu is a great mix of Italian dishes. The bread and dipping sauce are excellent and a nice way to start the meal. We had the Veal Osso Buco (Very Good!), the Chicken Picatta and the Chicken Marsala. Everyone was happy with the meal and left the restaurant more than satisfied.More
