Ver disappointing., 8:00 reservation and didn’t get seated until almost 9:00. Very limited communication. We sat and immediately ordered appetizers. 45 minutes later, now 9:45 we still had no appetizers. Observing other tables around us and how they still didn’t have their main courses we decided to leave. When we informed waiter , he didn’t care. Hostess was somewhat sorry. While waiting we spent $150 at the bar on drinks and the women bartender was absolutely miserable. She should find a new job. If she worked in my industry she would be fired for her attitude.

I really like this restaurant. I understand issues. Don’t take the reservation if you can’t handle it. Ruined a nice Friday night.

We live near Boston now, but whenever we get to the Albany area we love to come here.
The food is really good and some of the appetizers can add pasta and have as an
Entree. Just a really good don8ng experience.

Outstanding. Even though it was Mothers’ Day, the service and food were impeccable. My bronzino was incredible-very crispy skin with succulent, perfectly cooked flesh over very creamy whipped potatoes, topped with delicate greens which melted in my mouth. Friends had lobster fettuccini which was delicate, not heavy/rich cream, perfectly cooked monkfish and scallops which were crisp on the outside and buttery inside. Delish wines! Our server, Samira, moved like a gazelle. This place is a cut above all the rest and for a very reasonable price. Still thinking about that bronzino and whipped potatoes.

Our daughter had graduated from St Rose earlier that day. Searching the web for a nice meal in the area that was not part of a chain, we found MezzaNotte. We were not disappointed!

As some others have said, a little pricey but you also get what you pay for. We will be going back in our next visit to Albany! Thanks for a great evening!

My husband and I went to MezzaNotte to celebrate our anniversary. Our server was very friendly and informative. The courses were served well-timed apart, we did not feel rushed at all. Our server checked in with us, to make sure we were happy with each course. The food from appetizer to dessert was all delicious and very well prepared. We would definately go back!

The majority of our meal was excellent. We thought the chef would want to know that the beef in the risotto was a bit tough, and we shared that with the waiter. Also, my salad came without two ingredients, and tomatoes had been substituted. Otherwise, a very nice experience.

The food and service were really fine. When we come again, however, will avoid the cocktail hour as the noise level was high- lots of energetic laughter/conversation from the bar area. Our waiter was great .

After hearing nothing but good things about MezzaNotte we gave it a try for my wife’s birthday. We were seated promptly at a nice table and received excellent service from start to finish. Appetizers and entrees were excellent. I will be back for more of the rabbit ragu. Good wine list with reasonable prices. Great house made tiramisu. Even with a lively Saturday night crowd it never seemed loud. Highly recommended for any occasion.

This was my first visit and I definitely will return. The waiter was soft-spoken and hard to understand but he was attentive. The service was relaxed (don’t go if you are in a hurry). It reminded me of dining in Europe where nothing is rushed, and I liked that. The food was very good, the portions were appropriate-not super-sized. I’ve passed this restaurant countless times and never knew it was there.

1 of our 2 appetizers was wrong. We waited over 45 minutes between courses for our entrees to come out...on a Tuesday. Other people could be seen inquiring about where their orders were. It used to be our go to place but it’s not what it used to be.

Went here for Easter Dinner and found the menu very pricey - paid $150 for 3 people with one cocktail. have bee here before and found it better - Easter had a special limited menu so perhaps that was the reason. In the past we've had a few very good Italian dishes here.

Great simple menu-great food-al dente pasta demonstrates great cooking and ability. However, filling up interior tables before booths is questionable.

Kitchen was a little slow as was service. Food was pretty good. The lobster fettuccine was tasty, lots of lobster but the pasta was a little dry, like it sat under the warmer for a bit. Over all good, I'd go back.

There was something not right on Saturday, feb. 17th. Wait time was extremely long. People at the table next to us were not happy either. My veal chop was very tough and fatty. Hadnt been there in a long time. Probably wont be back any time soon. Sorry about the experience, especially for the price (a little pricey) .

My husband and I took a chance on review's we read on Yelp to try Mezzanotte. We were not fooled! The restaurant is so pretty inside and immaculately clean, the servers were all pressed and professional and with the small open kitchen it never became loud. We ordered butternut squash ravioli and filet mignon for dinner. The menu is ala carte, so be prepared because the prices are a little high, but for the quality of the food it is well worth it!! Most of the desserts are made in house and delicious. I had the lemon panecotta and my husband had the lemon gelato and they were excellent.

You should really make a trip to this great little gem of a restaurant!!

Mezza Notte never disappoints, the boneless short rib is the best I have ever had. Patricia had the shrimp and scallops as usual, delicious.The Tiramisu is very special, made by the owner. The service is second to none, the wait staff know the menu and the wines. You can not do any better in the capital district.

Been to mezza note more than 50 times. It never disappoints. Menu always has some tweaks and changes which are always amazing. Service is the best in the area, and prices are perfectly matched. Dinner for 2 with 2 appetizers 4 cocktails was $120. Worth every penny.

I would never think about ordering duck meatballs but when I saw them coming out of the kitchen I ha$ to order them. GET THEM! They were fantastic. Everything was excellent starting with the complementary olive tapenade and fresh bread. My only criticism was the service was a bit slow, with too long waits between courses. Then again, it was Valentines Day.
