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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Alesia was great and the bar was very comfortable for dining. We got there in time for a few happy hour apps which were very tasty. The bread and dipping oil were also fresh and delicious. Instead of ordering from the 3 for $30 we ordered off the regular menu and special menu. The beef was braised perfectly but the salmon special was a little too oily. We will definitely go back and try something different next time.

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.

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!
