    Pretty sure our servers name was Sarah and she was wonderful! Filet was delicious but cheese plate appetizer was a little on the boring side and bit overpriced for what we received. Prosciutto was much too thick and old tasting and we had an enormous serving of whipped goat cheese versus the two much smaller servings of two other cheeses. But still one of our favorite places to dine!

    I want to explain, we had a very early reservation, 530pm. There were lots of seats available. Hostess tried to stick us with the first table in front of the front door sun blaring people shuffling around. We asked for one of the many vacant booths she let us sit but told us we had till 630 to finish. Then 2 more people came over and told us our time was limited. It seems the opposite of hospitality. Anyhow the waitress wasn’t very nice either, she kept rushing us to order. Forgot water and asked us if we wanted bread and then forgot. We ordered a pizza appetizer, wedge salad, lasagna, salmon and a ribeye. The food was fantastic. 5stars. Around $200 for 3 people. I really wish the service and the ambiance matched up to the food. Also be aware the cigar smoke from Island Girl was prominent.

    Food is good, service is good. Appetizer ( tuna) presentation basic, sauce : balsamic vinaigre only and basic quality. CALAMARI Appetizer, average. Branzino, good, sauce withe wine, basic ( maybe is better with any sauce) dish completely empty of any garnish except half burn lemon and two ( two) leaves of spinach. Desserts: cream Brule good, mousse chocolate ok. Pizza average ( with a wood oven you just need a real pizza maker). Good selection of wine.

    I’ll start off with the server we had was very nice and did her job well. The food was great. Our issue was with the host. Made a reservation but the only option was for outside. It was nice out so figured it would be ok. After walking through the outdoor dining section to get to the host stand and we realized it would be way too hot bc there wasn’t any circulation. And the area is between the inside and the next store so pretty much it is enclosed. The indoor dining room was empty when we came it so we asked to be seated inside. The host said no because they had reservations and all the tables were taken. Ok no problem we understand and we sat outside. By the time we got our entrees we were all overly hot and sweating that we could barely finish our meals. Had to ask for the check half way through our entrees and rush out since we were so uncomfortable. Only to get up and see the indoor dining room half empty, as it was when we walked in. Not sure why we were stuck outside for a half empty place but it definitely altered our first experience here.

    My friends and I spent a year living in Italy and we all loved this meal. This is the best Italian food in Jax. Far surpasses La Cena. Sit outside. The inside seating is pretty loud and there’s a pretty strong smell of cedar that is a little smokey. The outdoor patio is gorgeous and serene.

    I have eaten at a lot of restaurants in Jacksonville Florida and consider Mezza Luna the best. The servers are some of the friendliest in Jacksonville. Along with there standard menu they have a new special every night. There is always something new to try at Mezza Luna.

    We had reserved bar seats but had requested the dining room if anything opened up. To my surprise, we were seated in the dining room at our requested time. We both had the salmon and it was delicious. The service was almost as good.

    We sat outside which is usually great. I got about 20 plus bug bites and asked to move inside but no availability. The ceiling fans are going the wrong way so hot air was being pushed down. Usually it’s a great experience. Not perfect last night. The food and service were great.

    We went for our anniversary and the restaurant had put us up at the front of the restaurant with windows looking out and had decorated our table. This was unexpected and very nice! Overall, restaurant is great and will be back. I know everyone is struggling with staff and not sure if that was it last night, but almost 2 1/2 hours for dinner for 2 is a little much when we only ordered apps and dinner. We were not having a bottle of wine or lots of drinks either. I think watching the table beside us finish their dinner, another 2 top be seated and their dinner arriving before ours says our took too long. All in all a nice place, just missed on timing.

    Food was amazing. The NY strip was great! The outdoor sitting was beyond hot even with the fans on, but they were kind enough to move us to another table inside with a/c And it was my wife's birthday and they had the nice detail of giving her a slice of cake with a candle courtesy of the house

    Mezza Luna was really knocked my socks off! The Server, I can't remember her name (Reservation 7/12/22 at 6:45pm. Scott) was fantastic. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and handling a very busy packed restaurant extremely well. Impressive! Swordfish special was outstanding. Always impressed when the outside is brown but inside moist and tasty. Grilled cauliflower... Whhaatt?? Outstanding! Go Chef! One of the best meals I've had in many years. I'll be back! Go Mezza Luna!!

    Very disappointed with this visit, starting with the hostess that seemed to have a poor attitude , the only reservation available was the bar section, which was way too loud, we inquired about other seating, but only the hot outdoor was available, we noticed later the other dining section was never full and tables around us in the bar section were marked reserved, but no one sat in them. We ordered the calamari for appetizer , which we have had in the past , this paltry amount given to us was ridiculous. My husband and I had invited out of town guests to the restaurant and were embarrassed by this measly portion. Then the bread came out and the server proceeded to put each roll on our plate, very odd, usually it’s put on the table and guests help themselves, also the bread was mediocre at best. Between the sourpuss at the door, too loud volume, paltry amount of appetizer and weird bread service, I was not impressed with the restaurant.

    A good restaurant has excellent food, an excellent restaurant has outstanding service and our server, Parker, delivered outstanding service. It made our visit very memorable. I had a seared Bronzino and my wife had the grilled flounder; both were great. We will definitely return, because of Parker, and of course the good food and ambience.
