We were greeted and seated promptly. There was one waitress covering the guests at this time. I am not someone who gets angry about short staffing. This is an unfortunate time in the world so I am incredibly understanding. It took a long time for us to get our cocktails, however the ones we did get were very tasty. It is unclear whether she was the only server all night or maybe they made cuts a little too early. It was clear she had a lot going on.
They serve bruschetta with their bread which was piping hot and so delicious! Nice touch with the bruschetta. The appetizers came out quickly we had the Arancini and mussels. They were delicious but weren’t served quite as hot as I would like them but the flavors were all there. They were not cold I would’ve sent them back if they were cold but may have been sitting for a bit and cooled down.
Entrees I got lobster ravioli and my mom got gnocchi. Again both delicious but not quite as hot. These actually took quite a bit after we were finished with appetizers. The lobster filling was plentiful and definitely had enough lobster to cheese ratio. The sauce was a little too sweet but overall a very good dish. The gnocchi were awesome too.
We had requested a dessert menu that never came unfortunately. we were hoping to have some dessert with our coffee but ended up cutting our loses as the waitress seemed very busy and we were just about finished with the coffees anyway.
Overall I think if another server was on maybe they should wait to make cuts a little later on the weekends for the people who like to dine a little later, and if there was never another server it would be nice if a manager or something was helping the server out to ensure everyone had what they needed. I still tipped well and would never blame her, it was not her fault! She was super nice and always checked on us when she could!
Will try again
Excellent food, fantastic staff and service. Every time it's delicious. I leave already planning my next visit.
Restaurant was nearly empty - believe only 3 other tables. Nonetheless it took forever to get our initial cocktail order - in fact appetizers arrived before drinks. Italian specialty restaurant but the Pasta e Fagioli soup was mushy - awful.
The food was delicious - above and beyond other Italian restaurants in the area.
I love authentic real fresh food. Cafe Mezzanotte brings home the flavor of Italy and the enjoyment of a truly great surrounding. When Sergio Pellagrino cooks it is with love. I am extremely picky when it comes to fine dining. The food here is heart warming, festive, fresh and Oh so delicious. If your looking to impress clients or personal friends etc, come here you wont be disappointed. As a seasoned traveled veteran I can tase Italy in his food. This place is a Gold Mine.
We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at Cafe Mezzanotte! The food and service were great!
Everything was just perfect. Our server, Dawn, was attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding as well.
Always a great meal, service and a wonderful place to conduct a business meeting.
Everything was great, service outstanding looking forward to come back!!
I’ve never had a bad meal at Mezzanote. I had lunch with a business associate and we both enjoyed our meal. The lunch options are very reasonably priced and served hot. Highly recommended.
Loved it. The food was superb. We look forward to coming back many times.
It was wonderful
First time dining here Celebrated my daughter’s birthday. Everything was excellent. Food was great and service was better. Francesca was a very attentive server and kept checking in to see if we were okay. My salmon with crabmeat is the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!
Food was absolutely delicious and service was wonderful!
Excellent food. Very safe for covid.
Food was amazing - pastas are handmade in house and recipes follow true Italian cuisine as opposed to Americanized Italian! :) Booked a second reservation as we left!
The service A+ Dawn was excellent!
The food was amazing!!
Phenomenal experience, thank you!
We will return next visit to Wilmington!
Fabulous find! Wonderful food with large servings. Pleasantly pleased with atmosphere and location of restaurant. Went in to check it out for a rehearsal dinner, and ended up making a reservation for dinner. Delicious!
Nice place, good food and service. Will eat here again.
Great restaurant for a date or a quiet elegant place to dine. Food was superb and staff was exceptional. I highly recommend.
Superior experience. Exceptional food and service.
Our server was attentive and helpful with recommendations. The food was excellent.
This a great spot. Very authentic and delicious Italian cuisine. Sergio is an exceptional chef. Carbonara is the best I've had outside of Italy!
Wonderful place to stop for a quick lunch in Wilmington!
Had the crab stuffed salmon and it was very good. Served with asparagus and sliced up potato. Caesar salad was ok. I prefer a spicier Caesar dressing, but ingredients seemed fresh.
Exquisite meal! Perfectly prepared by the chef-so glad to have returned! The dining room and decor was inviting. The service by Dawn was attentive. Wonderful experience!
We had a celebratory dinner with family and ordered several appetizers including the burrata, the beef carpaccio, steamed clams, and the calamari, all were very good. For dinner the rigatoni with spicy marinara sauce was delicious and more spicy than your average dish. My cousin ordered the T-bone steak and that was excellent. Drinks were very good too, especially the habanero spiced corona which was different and interesting. The sangria was made well too, very good. And last but not least the service was great. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Thank you!
Limited menu but everything great. Dawn the server was terrific. Love the restaurant great for a quiet meal with great food.
Our server, Francesca was great, it was the first time dining there and she was very informative about the food and was a pleasure to talk to. We will definitely be back, the food was exceptional and the atmosphere made a relaxing dining experience.
This is a great spot. Always delicious and excellent!
Great service and nice outdoor seating area. Would consider coming here again in the future. Would like to see more seafood options on the menu such as Branzino, Pulpo and squid in ink.
My first visit! Very good food and service. I took advantage of the Wilmington Restaurant Week specials. I am glad this restaurant was an option. I will visit again in the future.
Service was nice and friendly, food was good, great value for restaurant week.
Amazing, I really enjoyed my experience and would love to come back.
Birthday dinner. Staff was excellent. Recommend for any type of dinning.
Phenomenal food and ambiance! The staff was very welcome and each course was delicious. I had the caprese salad, ravioli, and cannoli.
Excellent restaurant with great seating options both inside and out on the patio. We sat on the patio and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Many lunch specials to chose from and very accommodating staff and chef willing to change the meal to meet customer preferences. I had the Bronzino which was prepared to perfection with a crispy skin and soft and tasty flavor inside. Garnishments were roasted potatoes and spinach. My guest had the soup and chicken panini combination. We’ll go there again.
Cannot believe I have never been here before. It was simply amazing. The pasta is homemade, and wow, what a difference. We each had a different pasta, based pm what our server suggested.
I was truly blown away, this is a hidden gem.
Food was excellent. We had fish and it was wonderful. Service was exceptional. We shared a Caesar salad which was really nice and enjoyed hot, fresh bread with a complement of bruschetta.
Would return to this lovely restaurant. Our indication that it was good! We’re fussy and have high expectations.
