We were celebrating a family birthday. Overall an enjoyable evening and meal. The service was excellent. Food was good. The portion sizes were small. For the price of each entre which didn't include a salad, we found Mezzanotte to be a little overpriced. Larger portion size or include a salad or other side would be helpful.

This was our first time to dine here. The service was optimal and the cuisine delicious. Portions were a bit large, but perfect for lunch the next day. Parking was ample. Will dine here again.

Excellent tapas! The house wines are very nice! Try the lobster ravioli! As usual, very good service by the staff, a wonderful place to dine! We always enjoy Mezzannote!

Mezzanotte is always a good choice in NW Houston. Gerry and Adriana run a top quality operation with very good food. There were a couple of slip-ups in the service this occasion but generally good. Waiters should not try to impress people by trying to remember everything without writing it down. The atmosphere is nice but not fancy. Gerry and Adriana are always very quick to recognize their customers and greet them.

My daughter and I dined here on a Friday evening. We ordered the pumpkin ravioli as an appetizer. It was very good, but sadly there were only 4 tiny pasta pillows on the plate. The lemoncello cake was also good. However, the salad greens were limp and was overdressed. The salmon entree was dry and the accompanying vegetables were mushy. There was live entertainment that evening, which was not too terrible or loud, but did make it difficult for quiet conversation. I had been anxious to try this restaurant due to great reviews, but will probably not return. I did not find this restaurant to be a good value. It was pricy, but subpar. I will give the service 5 stars, for an outstanding waitstaff.

The Starter did not attend the expectations (jumbo gamberoni were qty 5 small shrimps and polpette of meat that should have been beef, pork & chicken were chicken only, saved by the good tomato sauce topping them up).
First dish pasta “strozzapreti ai funghi” good, even if little too creamy and expensive.
Main course “Ossobuco on Milan rise (yellow zafferan rise)” was certainly a good culinary experience remembering me the tastes of my home town (Pavia) near Milan, Italy.

We do not visit Mezzanotte frequently enough; a situation that we intend to resolve this year. In the past, we have reserved it for special occasions and relish each opportunity to visit. Our visit this past week was not exception; we celebrated my wife's 39th birthday, again. As is always the case, it was an extremely enjoyable experience from every aspect. Lily, our waitperson, was engaging, extremely attentive, and provided amazing service. The food was delicious from appetizer through the main course and dessert. I continue to believe that the best steak I have ever eaten comes from this neighborhood gem of an Italian restaurant. We love the place, the people who work there, and the owners who pour so much of themselves into the quality, the ambiance, and the family feel when you walk in the door.

Our entrees were delicious, but my caesar salad was soggy from having so much dressing on it and the
bread which used to be soft so as to dip in in the oil and herbs was hard as a rock almost not chewable.
We have been dining there for years and have never had hard toasted bread before.

This is my favorite Italian restaurant! I enjoy getting to show it off to my friends when they come into town.
Everyone Was very impressed by the pumpkin ravioli and all of the other wonderful tapas we had chosen.
It was a very affordable way to sample many different menu items and share them with great friends.

Valentines dinner was wonderful. They were also very accommodating to our special diets. Waiters and wait staff were very attentive as always. Each course was delicious. I had the steak with a mushroom rub which is to die for! We dine here often and it never disappoints us.

An excellent dining experience in the Cypress area! We were there for $5 Tapas night and the couple appetizers we had from the $5 list were excellent - try the fried calamari (not over-breaded with a tangy sauce) and the caprese app. For dinner, my wife always gets the Sole Piccata which never fails to please; I recommend either the Veal Chop or the Bistecca Fiorentina - both very well prepared with your choice of a pasta or veggie on the side; For dessert, the table side Banana's Foster can not be beat! And if you enjoy wine, an excellent, affordable wine list is available featuring some great Italian wines not to be found at other restaurants (I love Italian wine!) Come to Cypress and enjoy!

We have been going to this "Gem" for over 8yrs. The food is always good. Wait staff is attentive, but
can get busy as any place. We like that the owners occasionally will come around and ask how everything is---which shows that they care about the customer. Whether sitting at a table or at the bar, the service is good!
