Worked our way thru the local church carnival to reach the setting for some of the most beautiful sunsets in the Nuevo area, the Mezzogiorno restaurant. Greeted by one of the owners and Lucy our competent waitress we were escorted to a nice table looking out over the Bandares Bay toward Punta Mita just as the sun set. This restaurant... More

Really good Italian, but my shrimp wasn't fresh. My friends really enjoyed their meals and the service plus view made it a great evening!

Bucerias has a LOT of restaurants and Mezzogiorno is one of them at the top of the list! Tucked away on a backstreet on the beach is where you'll find this gem. There are different areas of seating to choose from. We were right on the beach last time and it was beautiful. You could see Venus and Mars clear... More

My husband and I celebrated our last evening in Bucerias at Mezzagiorno, and we had a lovely time. Food and service were top notch. We will be back.

Mezzogiorno B, Manager at Mezzogiorno, responded to this review

I can't really understand why people go on vacation, instead of spending more time on the beach, they d'rather sit in front of their Ipads and blast their "anonymous" opinions away... I also can't get it why, why, why... people don't make their complains at time of dinning, face to face, so situations such as this can fix immediately with... More

We had two nice dinners here. One romantic with just 2 of us before the Christmas rush. And then again later with 5 of us as a family on New Year's Day for dinner. The first dinner was grilled fish of the day and pasta with seafood. Both were very good. Service was also quite good but not very personal.... More

A friend treated us to a beautiful sunset dinner. Bread and vinegar/oil to begin was excellent. (Had to ask waitress 3 times for more vinegar/oil as they gave very little). Everyone enjoyed main course, my pasta was wonderful (always is!). Suggestion: guests should not have to ask for water (4 times)

Thank Robert D
Mezzogiorno B, Manager at Mezzogiorno, responded to this review

You are right about the water, guests should not have to ask for it, it should be refilled as it goes empty. However, the olive oil and balsamic is not on a refill basis... it is complementary...and if the guest wants some more...yes, please do ask for it. More

My favourite place in Bucerias will not be visited again. Too bad really it has the best beach ambience on the whole strip in my opinion. It was a busy night but it seems to have lost its personal service that i am used to. Waitress said very little, drinks were very weak, maybe because they dont ask if you... More

As you said it yourself, we were very busy, The waitress has many customers to attend and perhaps didn't have enough time to chit chat with you as much you would have liked her to. Remember, there are lots of tables in need of attention asides from yours. If it were your favorite restaurant, you should have understand that better... More

This place is incredible! This was our second visit to the Bucerias area, and we booked the first part of our trip at a hotel near this restaurant on purpose. It's that good. You can't go wrong here. They have an excellent wine list, and the food is amazing. Great food. Good wine. Excellent view. Top-notch Service. We are looking... More
