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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.
