Everything went well except ordered two glasses of pinot grigio at the bar about 6:20 PM and were charged $8.50 instead of the happy hour price of $6. I thought that bartender did proper pricing until I came home and confirmed on website that happy hour price was $6 for pinot grigio. The bartender was extremely busy due to large birthday party at bar and was doing very well considering that. Sorry that we did not mention pricing!
Otherwise, service and food was excellent as always. We enjoyed Fort Lauderdale Dine Out menu!

This is my first time there. It's a beautiful restaurant with great music. (Piano player in the bar.) Lighting is great and very romantic. Our server was amazing even while dealing with a large horrible party at the same time. It was our date night and we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food. We usually don't have that experience even while trying some highly rated restaurants. We had the tuna special appetizer and it was fantastic. I had the seafood fra diavolo and my girlfriend had the tuna special with rissoto and they were equally as delicious. To end it all, we split key lime pie which was huge and we both agreed the best either of us had ever had. Only complaint here is that we were seated near a huge party and they simply didn't belong in a place like this. Definitely try it out and I for sure will be back.

Celebrated my birthday here with a group of friends. The place was very nice and enjoy my first time dining here. Our waiter was attentive to the group and the food was amazing. I got the barrel cut Filet mignon and it was delicious! I plan to go back here again. Very good food

My son in law and I got the Rigatoni Bolognese, which was great, my husband got the pork chop special and he really liked it. My daughter being gluten sensitive got the barrel cut filet mignon 10 oz cooked medium, and she said it was ok/good. For the restaurant itself it reminded me of an old mafia movie, very dark inside, paintings of Italy, we even had a waiter with an Italian accent. The desserts were good not great. My husband and I shared the chocolate souffle, while my daughter and her husband shared the "Bistro's Crumb Apple Pie" under the name it says "enough to share". Yes this was a giant sized apple cake pie, it stood 2" in height and 3" wide with large thick slices of apple. It is enough to be shared by 4 people. There were no gluten free nor dairy free options for the meals that I why I only gave it 4 stars and not 5.

Our first experience with Bistro Mezzaluna was in 2019. One of the reasons we looked forward to returning to Fort Lauderdale was the chance to dine there again. What a great meal and evening. You feel welcome from the time you reach the door. Wait staff is very attentive. Drinks are well made and generous. Always lots of off-menu specials. Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection, presented beautifully and ultimately very tasty. Live music in the bar was an added bonus after dinner. After chatting with folks in the bar it became obvious that that Bistro Mezzaluna is a favorite of locals.

It was good. Meatballs were average, burrata and beet salad was good, pasta bolognese was very good as was the short rib special. The lobster and shrimp Fra Diavolo had no heat whatsoever and the lobster was a little chewy. Overall pretty good
