My friend and I needed a quiet restaurant for an extended conversation over dinner- the first night of my annual visit. Our first choice of restaurant across the street had a live musician playing and was crowded, so we left. La Mezzaluna was what we...More

Requested a table with a view and was very pleased with a table by the window. For appetizers we ordered the calamari and pumpkin ravioli. I'm not a fan of calamari, but it was the BEST I've had (lightly breaded). Good appetizer portion to share....More

Our party of five had a nice range of their specialties downtown near the Library. It's a big menu. The initial offering of bread with oil and sundried tomato was wonderful. Two of us had delicious crab and corn chowder. We would be pleased to...More

I dropped in for lunch on a whim and wasn't very impressed. The menu looked interesting so I was tempted. I ordered the seasonal risotto but when it arrived it was a little dull and oily rather than being fresh and tasty. Additionally this restaurant...More

Three of us went for dinner on the spur of the moment on a weeknight. Being midweek in summer, the place was not busy. It is most agreeable with its neat decor and very friendly caring staff. The number of specials was amazing. I shared...More

Consistently excellent food coupled with friendly & attentive service make it easy for us to return to La Mezzaluna again and again. The menu, including daily specials, covers a wide range of dishes. BYOB. Liquor store next door in case you forget. Recently we enjoyed...More

Since I wasn't very hungry, I only had a Caesar salad which was okay. I tasted my companion's calamari which not only looked unappetizing, but tasted like rubber bands! Undercooked, under seasoned with some kind of brown sauce drizzled over it. It wasn't even hot!...More
