Had the privilege of dining here with Clients, outstanding food! Stuffed Mushroom appetizer and Snapper Entree were the highlights, Caprese Salad also an excellent choice. Will definitely make a reservation at Mesa de Notte on our next visit to Ocala.

This is my first restaurant review in a long time. I am compelled to write about Mesa de Notte. This is a very, very good restaurant...excellent food, pleasing presentation, pleasant environment, effective and attentive staff and ownership. It was a "coming home" experience which is unusual these days in upscale restaurants. We have many fine restaurants in Minneapolis and St.... More

We made a reservation for 5:30 pm on a Saturday night for our anniversary dinner. We were treated well and the food was excellent. By the time we left, the line was out the door! So glad we ate early and had a reservation! We will come back again, next time with friends!

Celebrated a friend's birthday with a scrumptious lunch at Messa de Notte. I enjoyed the Mahi BLT and the other 3 ladies equally enjoyed the lobster salad. All the ingredients were fresh and presented in an appealing manner. The festive atmosphere was perfect for celebrating but still intimate for conversation. Always a winner.

Had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant and it all turned out to be true. Excellent staff who are friendly and actually care about the people they are serving. Very good menu from appetizers to entrees of a true Italian style. The plates are aesthetically presented with sides for the most part on separate plates. Great wine... More

Delicious dinner and good service. I had seafood with black risotto, my husband had lamb shank. I would suggest making reservations. We will definitely be back.

Excellent appetizers, particularly the fried calamari. Entrees were good sized and well seasoned, the pasta was al dente in my linguini and clams (though a tad salty). The risotto was perfectly cooked, bread was warm and plentiful. My only criticism is that the place was a little noisy due to the tiled floor, and was hard to hear conversation clearly.... More

We had never been to this restaurant, but I had heard it mentioned by others, so I thought it would make a good choice for a special evening. We went off the menu an both ordered shrimp parmigiana. We also had the calamari for a appetizer. The shrimp were perfect, very plump and fresh. The calamari was tender and delicious.... More
