Only open for dinner but you will enjoy the feast. It's worth going often because they change the menu with many seasonal variations plus terrific specials.

My girlfriend and I went on a spur of the moment dinner outing and MezzaNotte was a great choice! I had the rabbit ragu and it was wonderful. We shared the stracciatella gelato for dessert and wanted more. Thanks for a great experience!

We were at Mezzanote with a group and the food was average. The flavors were good but the veal was tough, salmon overcooked as well as the filet. The calamari was very tender but not crispy- flavored very well but oily. The service was excellent.
