I typically go to Mezzanotte a couple times a month; I sit at the (friendly) bar and typically order the sausage and clams with capellini. It is usually paired with an Old Fashioned and it is always delicious. Last Friday dining companion suggested Mezzanotte for one of our dinner excursions. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and shown to... More

Wonderful atmosphere. We really enjoyed our meal. My New York strip was prepared perfectly. Service was great, our server Anastacia was excellent. We look forward to our next visit.

We went this past Saturday night, my husbands birthday. We hadn't been there in years and remember it being top notch ,so thought of a revisit. Unfortunately being the Saturday before Valentines they were booked solid, so the table we were seated at felt like one added into a not usually used space. Near the kitchen door only separated by...

I was in town for a meeting with a very good customer. We scheduled dinner Mezza Notte. They were kind enough to make a special addition to their offerings to make it a very special evening for our dinner. I cant say enough about how exceptional Mezza Notte is. From the atmosphere, to the food, to the service - Mezza... More

The special menu had few surprises so I went with a ciopetto which had half way decent sea food but not enough of it .... Companion ordered an overpriced riggatoni meal... More

Have always wanted to give this a go as I've heard people rave about it. So glad hubby and I decided this past Friday to stop in for dinner arriving a little after 6. Although we did not have reservations we were able to find a table for two but I highly recommend that you make reservations as the restaurant... More

This is a terrific dinning venue. Nice wine & beer list ( hubby would prefer draft beer). Excellent menu, prompt but not annoying service. Small but varied menu with interesting specials. Owner is " hands on". Scallop dishes are " to die for". We consider this our neighborhood restaurant. Give it a try.

I arrived at the Albany airport, coming home from a long week away. While I waited for my husband to pick me up, I loaded the Open Table app to see if we could do the impossible -- find a reservation on a Saturday night in Albany. I was pleased to see that MezzaNotte had an opening at a convenient... More
