Friday & Saturday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm
Fabulous food, great atmosphere, Tim is an excellent waiter. We will definitely visit again.
Food and atmosphere were excellent. Service was good, but the wait staff seemed annoyed when we made some special requests. I can’t say they were rude, just not particularly enthusiastic. All in all a good experience, I would return.
I have been here multiple times and have enjoyed every dish I have ordered. You are greeted with a warm welcome when you walk in. The service and food is awesome. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent food, atmosphere and staff.
Great. Service was especially good.
Went with friends on a Saturday night to celebrate our mutual birthdays. We had a reservation and were seated immediately BUT...did not realize we would have an hour to wait from the salad course to actually getting our meal! Kitchen staff are incompetent. My and husband's meal were cold. Avoid all specials and just order the pasta meals. Our waiter was very good and we did not punish him for the kitchen's problems. Also way too expensive for the place and quality of food. I brought my $38 special strip steak home for the dog since the eatable beef was minimal
The food is consistently excellent. Our waiter Tim is always fantastic. The hostess was extremely accomodating in making sure we had him for our waiter. The bartender was great as well. Always a treat!!
The lasagna was excellent. My wife has had it before and is consistently good. I had the lobster fettuccini, which was disappointing. I seriously doubt the lobster was fresh - meaning never frozen. It was tough and chewy and the sauce was mediocre. Not something I will need to order again. The Baby Amarone - by the glass is - is excellent
Connie and her staff always top notch. We always enjoy it.
The food was excellent, friendly service, no rush to turnover the table. We were slow with ordering and our server was great about it. Highly recommend the duck meatballs appetizer!
We booked Mezza Notte to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were seated in a nice booth which gave us some sense privacy from the crowded main dining area. Our server was prompt in taking our drink order and explaining the specials. However, he almost exclusively had eye contact with men as we experienced at our table and observed with his other customers.
We give a mixed review regarding the food. The menu is somewhat limited yet does have a few good options. My beet and burrata salad as well as the rabbit ragu were very good while my husband's beans and greens was more like a soup with the amount of broth overwhelming the few greens, beans and scant amount of sausage. His chicken saltimboca was tasty yet very meager and he could not determine if prosciutto was actually included in his dish.
Although our server checked on our opinion of the entrees, he then totally ignored us and his other table in the next booth as he proceeded to have an extended conversation with the couple at the table directly in front of us. We were distracted by his animated discussion and how long it continued. We would have liked to order a glass of wine with our entree and likely would have had dessert, but we were never approached by the server. I finally waved my hand to obtain his attention. We requested a box for our leftovers and the server seemed annoyed and never asked us if we would like anything else. We guessed he was angry that we had interrupted his conversation. We paid and left. His behavior was totally inappropriate, rude and displayed a lack of training of this server.
With so many good restaurants in the area, there is no reason to go to Mezza Notte and be treated as if you were in a diner setting. Save your money and go elsewhere!
Even though it was only half way through their service they ran out of Filet's; however what we ultimately ordered was good but on the smaller side - The fried calamari as an appetizer not so much. Also it was very noisy. We are kind of neutral but may give it another chance.
Great food great atmosphere great service very good price
We had an excellent first visit to MezzaNotte. I would definitely recommend it. We will be back.
The experience was great and the staff was very good and very professional.
After reading other reviews we were looking forward to dining at Mezz Notte, but it did not meet our expectations. My wife had the linguini with lobster sauce. The lobster was chewy, pasta was cool and must have been sitting for a while, stuck together. Found it to be very noisy.
Mezza Notte continues to live up to expectations for a special occasion meal. The Mezza Notte Salad remains a special favorite!
Excellent food and atmosphere. A very nice place to dine overall. The lobster fettuccine was delicious and the ricotta cake dessert was light and airy. Everyone in our party was pleased with their meal.
We enjoyed the 3 for $30 plus wine pairing. The meal and atmosphere was a pleasant experience. We look forward to more evenings at MezzaNotte.
MezzaNotte has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent and the service is great.
Food was delicious, as always. Was disappointed they were not offering the Panna Cotta for desert (2nd time). Also, my dinner was supposed to come w/ asparagus & there wasn't any, or any accommodation offered when I pointed it out. Otherwise service was excellent. Great restaurant!! Love it there & highly recommend it.
Our experience was fantastic. Super fresh ingredients. Creative dishes. Superb service. Delicious homegrown tomatoes. Wonderful evening.
So glad we took a chance with this restaurant, after seeing this on Open Table, since we were going to be in Troy for freshman move-in. Service was very good, and the meal awesome. I had the rigatoni, cooked perfect; son tried the bison (med/rare) and raved about it! Highly recommend the beets & berries appetizer and the fried calamari was tender and delish!
We WILL be back!
It had been a while since we dined here, so decided to go again with friends. Our last visit was good, but we did not have the same experience this time. Perhaps it was an off-night, but it was disappointing. They do offer a $30 for 3 course meal, which offered several choices that were appealing. One person had the chicken saltimboca - which was very dry. The food was just plated - without any effort to garnish for presentation. The rigatoni siciliana had plenty of sausage but hard to find any eggplant. Overall, the dish was something you could easily make at home. Seemed a bit over priced, since the dishes were not generously sized, and everything was ala carte. The bread, however, was very good and served very warm. The menu overall did not offer enough "Italian" dishes to choose from, so if you are in the mood for sauce and pasta, you should dine elsewhere. There were other choices such as beef short ribs, but we were looking for Italian dishes.
We had a nice quiet table for the two of us. Our waiter was warm and welcoming, and the food was great, especially the steak special. Great desserts. We have vowed to dine here more often.
Great home made pasta!!!! Good and friendly service
One of the best meals, we've had in the Albany area - the steak was perfect!
Have dined here on several occasions and always leave pleased and full!
Lovely place with a French cuisine. Loves the food, portions were big, menu had a lot of tasty and healthy options and the service very-very nice! We had a pleasant experience
My family visited from out of town and I selected this restaurant based upon the reviews. We had a great time! The service and the food were excellent, and everyone was very impressed. We will definitely return.
Great meal in a quiet atmosphere. Service was prompt and attentive.
We have been dining at Mezza Notte for many years, and have never been disappointed. We shared the salad with goat cheese, which was excellent. My husband ordered his favorite at the restaurant, their rabbit dish, and enjoyed it very much. I ordered the tilapia special, which when it arrived, looked very dry, and upon eating it, it was quite dry, outside, and in. To be clear, when I mentioned that to our waiter, he offered to have something else prepared. Not wanting to wait, I accepted the chef’s offer to make a butter sauce, which did improve the dryness somewhat.
The waiter did everything he could to satisfy. However, I would not order that dish again.
Anniversary dinner with my wife...excellent food and service! Would definitely recommend.
Horrible service. Absolutely the worst with no apologies or consciousness. Over 2 hours to get our dinner. Food was average at best. So noisy we had to yell and couldn’t hear anything.
We will never, ever go back.
The food and the service are top notch! I have never had a bad experience here.
Excellent food and service. Monkfish, gnocchi, citrus salad all were excellent. Even the gluten free vegan had a delicious meal. Serene dining room with soft lighting and ambience. Service just right. Highly recommend.
Our first visit. Warm welcome by friendly hostess and great service and conversation from our waiter. The food was excellent. The setting is relatively quiet and good for special occasions. This happened to be a wedding anniversary. The specials rounded out what is a good selection of entree choices. Well come back.
A delicious dinner! My friend found many vegetarian options. Great service!
We were there at 6PM on a Monday evening. The service was very prompt and courteous and the food was quite good. The ambience was pleasant enough considering that the building was just off a major, busy road. The windows in the dining room looked out the back of the building onto a quiet tree lined area, giving the impression of a more secluded setting. Drinks and food were a little pricey but not outrageous. We plan on going back.
My Italian mother in-law said it was the best lasagna that she had ever tasted. If you had ever tasted her cooking, you would understand what high praise that is.
