The food was great, but this was the second time I had a poor serving experience at Mezza. The server was just not attentive, pretty short with words, left all our dinner menus with us after ordering. Just could have made the Mother’s Day dinner more enjoyable with better service. :)

Food was very good, service was excellent. It had been quite a while since we had been to Mezza and while the menu had changed the overall quality was still very good. We especially liked the creamy potato & fennel soup.

We were very disappointed with the menu options. We the calamari, which was tender but a little heavy and greasy. Not seeing anything on the menu that really wowed us,we decided to order a pizza. The pizza dough was excellent, but the pizza overall was certainly one of the best we ever had. We tried to order a bottle of chardonnay but was told they don't sell chardonnay by the bottle. Theservice was actually excellent and very accommodating. Not worth it.

Food was even better than I expected. Ordered the meatball appetizer, filet, cheesecake and affogato for dessert. All very phenomenal. Charming atmosphere, lovely music and ambience. Priced for special occasion, not everyday, very worth it. Lovely outdoor patio. Free valet parking with getting your ticket punched, worth it on a Saturday night. Overall a great special occasion meal and will definitely be back and bringing family when they come to town.

It was not like in other visits, the bread was so colds, our waitress did not offered or suggested anything just wait for the order, we went there last year for my birthday and I asked to go there to celebrate my early Mother’s day, but sadly it was not special at all:(

This was the best dinner I had in Jax! Anna was so sweet, I was seated at a beautiful table decorated for my birthday, given an adorable card. Our cocktails were amazing and our dinner was cooked perfectly!! Thank you so much Anna and the rest of the staff for making our trip so wonderful.

We have eaten here several times with outstanding food and this time everything we ordered was mediocre. Wondering if there was a recent chef change. For the prices and this quality we don’t plan to return which is a bummer because this place has always been great for us.

The food is over priced and underwhelming. The service was great but the cozy atmosphere (even in outside seating) was so loud. We have been going to Mezza Luna since the 90's when it first opened. That lovely little Italian place, with some of the best food at the beach, is gone. It's been replaced with badly prepared, expensive, trendy food that is way too proud of itself. Reality check, you're not worth it. Lifetime customer, since I was sixteen, lost. Never going back.

All servers are masked and all tables are socially distanced. The food is always high quality and there was live music the night we were there. The man was signing very tasteful, classic rock and did a great job. You can tell the restaurant is managed well because all of the servers are always happy and efficient.

Good food and pleasant ambiance. Valet at back entrance is convenient.
Server was very good and friendly without being overbearing.
Traditional Italian menu but not much pizazz in the entrees. Quality of food was fine though.

I tried the Lasagna. Best I've ever had in my 70+ years of dining out. Everyone in my party of eight was satisfied with their food and the service and there's no pressure to hurry. We were there for about 2 hours.

Sat on the patio, the atmosphere and service were fabulous. A little on the pricy side but worth the spend for a special occasion. Parking in Neptune Beach is a pain so the valet parking was nice.

Really nice restaurant, service was great I think our waitress’ name was Sam super sweet girl. But food is way over priced and honestly pretty average. Do you yourself a favor, learn how to cook some Italian and you can make better food than this place.

Easter 2021. Very nice place, fabulous service and courtesy valet parking. Portion sizes were on the smaller side, but enough. Good food. We will go back. We had the filet, scallops, calamari, Caesar salad and bucatini side....
