The food was delicious and our server friendly and personable! I highly recommend it.
Sometimes I just need a good meal in a great place. When i am in this kind of moods, I always go to Cafe Mezzanotte . Best Italian Restaurant....Ciao
What a wonderful evening my family was treated to tonight by the staff of Cafe Mezzanotte. We were greeted cordial upon entering. The clean, friendly atmosphere was apparent from the beginning. The starters were quite tasty and obviously fresh. All six dinners we ordered came out together and were all hot and delicious. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. We will definitely return again and again. Thank you for a wonderful evening.!!!
Great food. Lovely surroundings. Wonderful service. Our favorite stop in Wilmington.
A very classy restaurant. A treat to dine there!!
Best filet I've ever had. Loved the atmosphere. Felt very clean and safe to dine-in even during Coronavirus.
Everything was delicious. Would recommend it to my friends.
Excellent food, service and drinks.
Excellent service, food prepared perfectly and good wine selection. I would highly recommend.
I had an amazing meal during my work trip. The service was outstanding. Pasta Carbonara was simply delicious, I have had a lot of pasta in my lifetime and cook at home a lot. Therefore I just have a great appreciation for all the amazing flavors and quality in one dish. Hat goes off to Chef! Would definitely recommend if you want good Italian food!
The pepperadell with mushrooms and sausage was delicious. The rigatoni looked good. I would like to try more pasta dishes. The dry-aged steak was not up to snuff and I would not recommend it. Thanks.
It was my wife’s 40th birthday and she chose to go to her favorite restaurant. I was excited to see an open table special that said 2 courses and a drink for $30. When we arrived, the server explained that it was an extended weekend Valentine’s Day menu. The special would not apply and worse yet her favorite dish was not available. She enjoyed her meal and the bread was phenomenal but my rib eye was about 1/3 fat and both of our drinks weren’t anything to write home about. She usually raves about the blue cheese stuffed olives but she walked away very disappointed. I also missed out on an opportunity to earn 1,000 bonus points through open table due to choosing the 2 courses and 1 drink special but instead I just earned a disappointing night.
Our first time at Cafe Mezzanotte for a Valentine's Day dinner. Outstanding meal including great pre-dinner drinks. We had the Chilean Sea Bass which was large and cooked perfectly and an equally outstanding Fettuccine Bolognese -- both of which where some of the best we have had anywhere. The service was also excellent as was the atmosphere. We will make this one of our favorite Wilmington, DE restaurants to go.
We went on an early Friday evening and there were very few diners. Service was excellent, environment was nice. I wish the $16 scallop appetizer which consisted of 4 medium size scallops either had a lower price or had been wrapped in bacon. They tasted good but not great. The rigatoni and shrimp entree (5 shrimp) tasted excellent, the rigatoni al dente. The beef filet medallions were ordered medium well (I know, how could we?) and they were prepared exactly that way—-they were dry as a result. The desserts were modest in size but so were their prices. Overall would go back, we had a good experience.
Week days service is great, but on
Weekends, it needs help.
Enjoyed the Saturady night special which was excellent. The wine was reasonably priced. Also, no rush or pressure to leave!
Server Dawn was exceptional. We enjoyed the experience and food was very good also
Cafe Mezzanote has been a favorite of ours for years! It’s well worth the trip into Wilmington for a great meal, and this was no exception, especially since it’s perfectly located to enjoy a great meal before a show at the Playhouse in the DuPont Building!
My wife started with a bowl of pasta e fagioli which was delicious. Her Lobster Ravioli was just what you would expect - great lobster in a tasty ravioli! My tortellini crab was extra delicious with nice size little balls of crab in the tortellini! I can’t forget to add that the bread was fresh, hot and light! Perfect for sopping up some of the extra cream sauce on my plate!
For dessert I had the chocolate soufflé which I loved. Very close to a molten lava cake and perfect for chocolate lovers like me!
I would be remiss without mentioning the excellent service throughout the evening by our server, Colleen!
Nice restaurant in downtown Wilmington that we had forgotten about and decided to try again on Saturday night. I would have rated it higher, as the food and setting was great, and many of us took advantage of he special, which was a good value. My problem was with the service. Our server was very nice and attentive (when she appeared), but they seemed to be understaffed and we had to wIt a long time to complete drink orders, place food orders, get water refills, etc.
This is my first time visiting and it was fantastic. I couldn't have asked for a better server, better food, or better ambiance. Everything was great!
A perfect NYE! Food was delicious!
Italian Christmas Eve
Christmas with a friend
My wife and I were in the mood for Italian and wanted to try somewhere new. We made reservations and arrived 15 minutes early as our commute from NJ was better than expected. We were seated right away, so far so good. I ordered the tortellini soup which took 25 minutes. There was a couple seated next to us 20-25 minutes after us and not only did they receive their appetizer before us but their entree as well. They paid for their meal and were gone while we were still eating our entree. The food was tasty but not worth the long wait. The chef/owner did come out and greet a few tables which I thought was odd, why not greet all your patrons. I truly believe our long wait was due to the server as all of her tables seemed to be moving slow. If you want over priced average tasting food and slow service then this is the establishment to visit. Would not go back if it was free!
10 of us went to enjoy a meal the Saturday after Thanksgiving before seeing a movie. Food was delicious as always, and service was terrific. It is a little pricey but it is worth it.
The hotel I was staying in recommended this place and I’m certainly glad they did! My server was pleasant and knowledgeable, and very attentive. She recommended the Branzino which was absolutely stellar! I had the pleasure of meeting the Chef, Sergio, who served the fish for us at the table which was quite the show. It’s unfortunate I don’t come into Wilmington more as this restaurant left me wanting for more. Anyone staying in Wilmington I highly suggest checking this place out, it is a true gem.
Great food, great drinks. Never disappointed!
I had high hopes but was terribly disappointed. We arrived for our reservation on time and were seated within a few minutes. After waiting more than 15 minutes we asked if anyone was serving our table. We eventually did have a server take our drink, appetizer and entree orders at the same time. We also told the server that we were seeing a show so time had become an issue, the reply should have been that they would ensure our meals were prioritized, bu instead it was that it depended on how quick the kitchen was.
A full 45 minutes after our reservation time we received our appetizers. When our entrees arrived we had to ask for the check since we would have to eat quickly and leave.
The food was uneven with some dishes being very good while others were lacking.
Unfortunately we won’t be back. For a show night and a full restaurant they were terribly understaffed.
Went on a Saturday pre Theater. Very busy but our server did a great job.
We always have a good meal at Cafe Mezzanotte. The food and service is good and the drinks are excellent.
We were a party of eight and most were happy with their meal. The room was quiet and we were able to converse easily. Service was prompt and the server was very pleasant. The location was excellent and convenient to the theater.
The lunch menu has many choices that are reasonably priced. Portions could have been a bit larger, but the food was very good. The amaretto almond dessert cake was delicious and I would order it again.
We went to the restaurant for the first time on a Thursday night for our anniversary. We have lived in Wilmington for 25 yrs and have never been there. I am so upset that I was not informed about how great this place is! We will definitely be back. Great service, great drinks, excellent food. Loved every minute of it!!
The atmosphere was charming, the waitstaff was very attentive, the food was excellently prepared and attractively presented. An awesome experience
