“Pizza - 1. Pasta - 0.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

If you're interested in a nice relaxed venue for a meal during the week this restaurant may suit.

Good Service and better than average pizzas sum up this place.

The atmosphere is relaxed, the restaurant is behind a group of local shops so if you're not aware it's there you may not even know it exists.

The staff are friendly and efficient and make you feel welcome and service is good.

Having been here twice, the first time having pizza and the second trying the pasta I'd recommend sticking to the pizza.

I had good memories of the first time here and having a nice pizza, so was happy to come again and this time sample the pasta.

This turned out to be a bad move on my part unfortunately, as the pesto gnocchi was incredibly salty. My partner's Fettucine Boscaiola had really big chunks of cheap bacon in it which didn't do the appearance of it any favours, but if you don't mind that it might just pass as ok.

So my thoughts overall were it's a nice quiet place to have dinner with a few people, service is good and pizza is good too. Maybe stay away from the pasta though.

Dessert menu is a bit limited with a few flavours of gelato, however it does end a meal nicely!

“Nice Pizza, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

We go to Mezza Via for nice, simple take away pizza. We also like to go there with friends for an easy, relaxing no-fuss meal. The staff are friendly and helpful - it's a great option for an end-of-the-week wind down meal. Reliable, tasty, good value - just what it should be.

“Beautiful little italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We've visited Mezza Via many times in the 2 years we've lived in Ryde. It's a quaint pizzeria hidden away in the Midway shops in Denistone. We've taken all our overseas visitors (friends and family) there to taste beautiful Italian food at reasonable prices.
It has a lovely laid-back atmosphere, and the food is delicious.

We often take our toddler with us - they have high chairs and she's always been treated nicely by the staff.

A few times over the years George - a lovely guy who made us feel really welcome - has served us and made recommendations on what to try.

We've never been disappointed with our meal choices and will keep going! :)
Highly recommended for a relaxing late afternoon/early evening meal with the family.
They also do takeaways.

Great pizzas and pasta. Try the pesto or the michael angelo pizza and you won't be disappointed.
