Food is exceptional !
. Noise level in the dinning area unbearable.
You cannot sit around the table and hear the person sitting across from you.

Food was excellent. Waiter was nice but rushed us to put our order in. We were ten minutes late but we would've taken that time just to chat it up anyway. Other than that, everything was great. I had the sea bass and my wife had the salmon. Both were awesome, along with out crumb apple pie dessert and chocolate ice cream.

We had an enjoyable meal that started with fried calamari which was more than adequate for two diners. For our main course I had linguini with whitewater clams and my husband had the rigatoni Bolognese. Both were nicely prepared.

Don’t be fooled by all these excellent reviews! The food was mediocre at best. My husband and I both had the Rigatoni Bolognese. Pasta was over cooked and sauce was bland. Waited dumped parmigiana cheese on both our laps. Burrata salad needed salt. Our friends had steak with arugula salad and the bucatini. Both were “meh”. We ordered not one but 2 bottles of wine and the waiter never came over to refill our glasses. They brought my entree over before I had finished my bland app. And when they cleared the table, they didn’t even offer to box the leftovers. More importantly, they didn’t ask if we enjoyed or why we had so much left on our plates. Epic fail from both a service and food perspective.

Amazing food and wonderful waiter! We were in town for a volleyball tournament for our 12 and 8 year olds and we were looking for a quick, healthy dinner. Bistro Mezzaluna was perfect, we were in and out in under an hour and the food was absolutely incredible! Adults and children all loved their meal, will definitely return!!!

very disappointing. Although the food was excellent everything else was sub par. The staff did not seem happy and not accommodating. The service was slow. It took over an hour to receive our entrees after ordering them. The kitchen substituted items without letting us know first because they ran out of things. There are to many other choices in south florida to return to this one.

Christmas Eve dinner with family and close friends was absolutely amazing. Menu and wine list are wonderful. Service magnificent. We sat on the patio so did not experience the "bar scene" inside. The setting was so lovely. Our first experience here, but definitely will not be the last. It is pricey, but worth every penny and then some!
