The food was amazing. We both tried something new and was absoljtely wonderful. Service was fantastic. Only real complaint was the attitude we recieved from a seemingly indifferent hostess upon arrival.

Tried out the new seasonal menu and it is delicious. I had the osso buco ravioli and it was everything I hoped for. The new winter burrata cheese is also exceptional. They grill the tomatoes which brings out an extra sweetness and depth of flavor and the cheese is creamy and just blends with the tomatoes perfectly. We finished the night off with a chocolate martini which is just the perfect dessert.

I love this restaurant! We went once or twice before and the delicious food with the chef’s unique twist on Italian recipes was so interesting and delightful. The flavors were memorable! The bananas fosters dessert is worth repeating over and over again!! The ambiance has nice dim lighting, fine servers, and cool artwork displayed. This was the perfect place to return for my birthday dinner and we enjoyed every minute!

We went to Mezzanotte last Saturday night with a couple we have known for years. The food and service were excellent; our waiter was very attentive, but not overly so. The live music...jazz saxophonist...added to the outstanding experience that we had.

Mezzanote is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Up here in the far north (Louetta Road around SH 249) we actually have a lot of pretty good restaurants, but only a few really good ones. Mezzanote is definitely one of the really good ones. The food is authentic Italian, down to the olive sampler available for $7 and the polpette (meatballs) for $9, and the wine list has some excellent Italian options. It's a neighborhood place, so attire ranges from shorts and t-shirts to sport coats. Live music on weekends is a 3-4-person rotation of lone singers with expensive sound systems - sounds hokey but they're all very good and it works.

We've been here a dozen times, usually just a date, sometimes with area friends. The service is amazing, they're like your best friends who know just what you want (we love Lilly, but you can't go wrong with any of them). The timing of the courses is superb - exactly when you're ready, boom, it shows up. Special order, substitutions, half orders - no problem, big smiles, glad you're here.

The food is always perfect seasoned, proportioned, and amazingly consistent. Every time we go we get at least one of our regular favorites and it's always made exactly the same every time, which is great because that means it's made perfectly. Never even had to add salt, and we've been all over the menu, from the pasta to the fish to the meat dishes.

Cy-Fair/Louetta/Lakewood Forest - whatever you want to call this area of town, we're lucky to have Mezzanote.

What a disappointment. My wife's entree had to be sent back twice and they still charged us. The manager/owner's response to our complaint was condescending and unprofessional. If she is the owner she should stay away from customers. If she is the manager she should be accountable for her kitchen when they underperform. Unacceptable

Lunch during the week. Surprised at the few tables filled for such good food at reasonable prices. Enjoyed immensely.....had the fettuccine bolognese and my daughter had the salmon. Only reaction was the size of the salmon (4 oz) which was deemed small. However when reminded of the price, it was totally understandable. Love this place! Had some leftover fettuccine bolognese for dinner Friday. Yummy!

We went for our anniversary and ate from the Houston Restaurant Week’s menu. I had eaten at Mezzanotte the Friday prior with friends and wanted to share the HRW menu with my hubby. Man that purple potato gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce is amazing as was the pork shoulder with polenta. Got these dishes both times I visited. I finished with tiramisu in a to-go box which was wonderful. I plan to go back one more time before the HRW menu ends cuz these dishes are magnificent!!

What a lovely evening! Four ladies enjoying restaurant week at one of our fave places. Mezzanotte has great food, experience and ambience. And their staff doesn’t hesitate to share their menu guidance. Much appreciated! We will be back to enjoy our local favorite. And not have to go into town for a great meal.

Use to frequent this resteraunt when they first opened. After several bad experiences, we stopped going. Noticing that they were mentioned in the paper for resteraunt week, we decided to try again. I expected the resteraunt to have some daily specials, they did not. There were no specials for resteraunt week either. I had the pumpkins pasta. It was pasty and heavy and lacked flavor. The osso buco was quite nice. My husband had the sole which was ok. On the positive side, the service was very good! My personal opinion, this establishment needs to revamp their menu!
