“Affordable Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

La Mezzaluna is tucked away in a strip mall, next to an excellent Mexican restaurant. The service is great and the food is excellent. Very affordable for a family dinner.

“Very Good Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

My wife and I had dinner here yesterday evening and it was very good. Typical Italian fare but with some entrees that I was not familiar with. Food was excellent and so was the service. Atmosphere is your typical suburban mall restaurant, nothing fancy. Would definitely come back next time I'm in the area.

“good food, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Went there for lunch. My wife said her eggplant rollatini was the best she had in years. I had a meatball parmesan sub and it was also very good. Might have had another half meatball.

“Disappointing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went to celebrate our anniversary. We have been before and enjoyed it, but it had been awhile. I am hoping that our meal was a fluke, and they haven't gone that far downhill!

The salad was average. The garlic knots were average, at best (not fresh, no garlic or butter).

We ordered the calamari for an appetizer. It was FABULOUS!! Some of the best calamari I have ever had.

My husband ordered the Shrimp Parmesan. He ate it, but didn't think it was wonderful.

I ordered the Shrimp Alfredo. GROSS! They could have poured dirty dish water over the pasta and it would have had more flavor. I added cheese, pepper and salt TRYING to like it. Nothing helped it. The shrimp in the dish were tiny cocktail type shrimp.

Overall, the experience was poor. I would go back and order the calamari, but that would be about it.

“A Culinary Delight!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Don't let the Arron's Rental and Food Lion grocery store next door fool you. This is one of the best restaurants you will find anywhere. A five-star trained chef creates individually prepared Italian delicacies. You can choose from nearly 60 entrees and pasta dishes that range from Rigatoni a la Vodka to Lobster and Crab ravioli. If it's not on the menu and they're not packed you can even have your favorite dish created.

We were there three nights and had a different meal each visit. We even ordered two meals to bring home. Linda was wonderful and took care of our every need.

If Italian is your craving, La Mezz is a must when you are in Charles Town!!!
