Reservation made to celebrate a birthday. Pleasantly greeted and the door and promptly sat. Found a card signed by the whole staff, which was really nice. Server was friendly and engaging through the whole meal, showing up at the right time to check in. Food was awesome and the birthday brownie was a tasty wrap to the experience.

Amazing atmosphere! We had just gotten married and we were treated like royalty. The food was delicious. A one-man band was playing in the bar area where we sat and created a very nice, relaxing ambience! We will definitely be back!

Food and service were exceptional! Great wine selection complimented the outstanding meal. I enjoyed the Thai sweet pea soup and balsamic pear & walnut burrata salad. My companion thoroughly enjoyed the flounder special. The entire experience was elevated by the live music of Taylor Roberts in the lounge. What a treat to be able to request music from such a talented (and humorous) musician.
We will be back!

This is our local spot which offers 3 separate options. One is casual bar, pizza and often live music, next is an upscale dining room and then a covered lanai outdoor. The same menu is available in each plus pizza.
Servers are efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Great wine selection and full Bar.
Menu has lots of variety with daily specials and great seafood.

We LOVE Mezza Luna. We have dining here for over 17years and they never disappoint. The food is so delicious, they have a fantastic wine list and the service is spot on. We love how you can eat in a more casual setting in the bar area or in dining room if you need a more formal one.

They told us we could not sit at particular table due to alternating tables for social distancing (great idea). Within 30 min they seated a family right next to us. In a room of 14 tables we were the only 2 groups in the room. When I politely addressed this they ended up moving us and not the group that had just arrived! Not smart!

Service was excellent . The remodel of the patio was outstanding. The flounder special was excellent. The lamb pop appetizer was very good. Was expecting more of a tender lamb kebab but it was a lamb chop but very good. The only complaint I had was the white unappealing roll that is served. You should probably skip it if u can’t do something more tasty and it interesting. My husband had the Greek pizza which was ok. The crust was white and bland but crispy. The wedding cake was nice but way too heavy on the frosting and the brownie was yummy.
We will definitely go back.

I love the food and the remake of the restaurant. The dining room has been transformed to an elegant collection of spaces and the patio is covered and perfect year round. The food is the real reason to come! Our table loved everything we had and the curry squash soup was divine!

This was our first time at Mezza Luna (we are new to Jacksonville, moved from Chicago). The restaurant is beautiful! Cozy, great areas for private dining, warm, and the live music was spectacular. On Monday they have 1/2 off bottles of wine, which was very nice. I made the reservation in OpenTable and only clicked on birthday when asked about the occasion. On arrival, the table had birthday party confetti and a card signed by the staff. I thought that was a great personal touch.
Food: Meatball over polenta were great. My favorite dish actually. We also ordered a traditional pizza which was just ok. Seems we found better options for pizza in Jax already. Then we ordered pappardelle with Bolognese sauce. That was very nice. For my taste the pasta needed 1-2 more minutes of cooking as was not only "al dente" but felt a little dry and not cooked in some of the noodles.
They brought us a brownie dessert with ice-cream with a candle. A nice touch but the brownie was burnt. Not overcooked, but black-crunchie burnt. We didn't complain as we did not truly ordered this. Our server was super kind and attentive. I'll go back and try other dishes (not the pizza). It was a very nice birthday celebration!

The outdoor patio is amazing. Has the feel of an outdoor Italian cafe space. And perfect for the covid-conscious. Papardelle is the go-to meal, with a bottle of Barberesco. Can't be beat. Almost makes one feel like they're in Northern Italy for the evening!

We went to Mezza Luna to celebrate my daughter's 28th birthday. It was a wonderful experience ! We had the cheese tray as an appetizer and it was delicious. All the food ( I had pasta as did both my children ) was out of this world. My husband ordered the scallops. He let me taste one and it was equally as wonderful. I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back !

Excellent birthday dinner! We sat on the patio which was perfect setting. Gentle breezes, soft music and romantic ambience. The food and service were outstanding! We had filet mignon, Brussels sprouts, fish cake, bleu cheese mac n cheese and corn bisque and could not have been happier with our choices! Very flavorful and delicious, we will be back!

Mezza has always been a solid choice, but these days it is FIRE! I had a very simple shrimp scampi over spaghetini. The local Mayport shrimp were fresh and cooked perfectly, the pasta is all made in house now (!!) and had a great chew, so fresh. The new exec chef is firing on all cylinders. My husband's greek pizza was divine. A glass of French sancerre could not have been a better pairing. The owner and the general manager both greeted us at our table and the back patio renovation is open and breezy. Very modern yet comfortable and warm. It was busy. Def make a reservation. Soon.

As usual Mezza Luna was excellent. Glad they are back to 100% capacity! There are 3 distinct seating options here. The bar area (bar and tables), the main restaurant area and the outdoor room. All 3 are very attractive and comfortable although also very different. During the week there is great live music in the bar area.

Food has always been outstanding during every visit. Specials are tough to pass up but I’m trying to sample everything on the normal menu at least once also. However it doesn’t matter what you order. Just know it will be delicious!

The brownie with ice cream dessert I had in this visit was very good. Fresh whipped cream on it would have made it OUTSTANDING!
