Nice atmosphere and waitress was friendly. However, food was not worth the price. Very salty. I have had much better filets for less.

Took my goddaughter and friends there! Restaurant week was in full swing and it was happy hour! Delicious food and good service! Pork chops were perfectly cooked and the pesto linguine was lovely!
It was a little noisy but that was o.k. We could still carry on a conversation.
Would definitely recommend this 2nd floor restaurant!

It was Restaurant Week in Pittsburgh and my husband and I felt Mezzo was a good choice. We were sat immediately, as we made reservations, however, we waited over an hour for our entrees. Our server said that a couple of large tables had put in their order ahead of ours, which we understood. However, three tables that came in after us, got their food before us!!! Or at least three tables that I could see and knew arrived later than we had. It was disappointing to say the least. Won't be going back to try them again. My husband had the branzino crudo but it wasn't cold. He was expecting raw fish to be kept at a cold temperature and it wasn't. The baked ricotta was ok, but the peaches tasted like onions. By the time our entrees arrived, we weren't even hungry since they served bread with our appetizers. It just wasn't the kind of evening we were hoping for. Disappointed all around.

We come here once a year from Philadelphia because it is our favorite spot in Pittsburgh. Excellent food, great wine selection, and knowledgeable and kind staff make this our place. We highly recommend it to anyone we know who is coming to Pittsburgh.

We were pleasantly surprised at Mezzo. The service was outstanding and the dinners were very tasty and flavorful. We decided that this is a restaurant that we will come back to during the next theatre season. Highly recommended!

Good atmosphere and very enjoyable food. Noise level was moderate and service was fairly prompt (we were on a short time frame leaving for a show, but when we asked to speed things up our waitress responded quickly. The "Three for $35" option was good value.

My husband and I came here over the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Although the food was very good, we were disappointed when my husband's entrée arrived raw. He ordered the pork chop and when he cut into the middle he found raw meet. Our waitress quickly brought it back to the kitchen and shared that it was under done and would be re-cooked and brought back. We waited ten minutes or so and his meal was brought back. Both of our meals were very good, but we felt for the price we paid for them we should have been compensated in some way for the raw meat.

Went with two friends for a nice dinner as a gift. Staff was very kind and gracious as our third had been caught in heavy traffic. The food was delicious, and especially the desserts. I certainly reccommend the calamari and the lemon ricotta tart.

Amazing food great ambiance if you can sit by the open railings, fresh and delicious, the arugula salad is the best! I don’t know why but I could eat 100 of them! My filet was incredibly cooked, service was wonderful, we all enjoyed ourselves and had fantastic meals! The location is great for after dinner drinks at any of the upscale bars in the area, this is on our list of regular spots now!

Seats were so close to one another, you could reach out and touch other patrons. And the setup offered very little privacy. The menu says they have salad, but they have 3 in total I think. And one is a bean salad I think, so that doesnt even really count as a real salad. The menu was underwhelming. Calamari was chewy and pretty horrible, I think about how bad that calamari was often... sometimes at night, when i am alone. Crabcake was satisfactory. My GF's arugula salad looked okay but was not terrific.

They do not have air conditioning. We sat upstairs, I had a reservation. We showed up, they sat us in between two other tables and it was upsetting because the table layout offers no privacy. And not inbetween cool patrons, we were stuck between a bunch of losers. It was hot too. I don't understand why a restaurant doesnt have air conditioning. The menu says its an italian place but its really more of like a meat and cheese, deli meat place with some tapas. It would probably be a good place for meat and cheese platter, and a cocktail. But we just wanted a salad and a table we could sit and talk and not be super hot, and they failed on all 3 fronts. Service was fine. He liked men, which is okay, i dont care who you like, he was a fine server, he didnt design the restaurant or decide to market it as Italian place when it is a meat and cheese place or decide to not buy air conditioning but get ceiling fans like its 1878 on the farm. The water comes in a nice clear glass jug, so that was neat!

Mezzo is awesome. Food is fantastic. We loved the Calamari, Chefs Charcuterie Board and the crab cake app. Pizza was not our fav but ok....we have done some pretty heavy duty pizza tours in NYC so finding pizza that meets our standards is tough. Crust and cheese were really really good but the sauce was too sweet for our taste. Bottom line...go to Mezzo for the Charcuterie...don't miss it! We only had apps so can't rate dinner eats. This place is really fun...and the staff is superior. Will go back when in Pittsburgh again!

Staff was very accommodating for dietary requests. Food was fantastic except I ordered a well-done steak and received a medium rare one. Didn't send it back because didn't want to wait for another one, but I'm not sure how it could have been so off the mark.

We had high hopes given the popularity, but the food left much to be desired. Pasta sauce was bland, charcuterie board was nothing spectacular. For better Italian, go to Piccolo Forno or DiAnoia’s up the street.

Wonderful service, Brian was prompt and attentive but not intrusive in any way. We all had the wood-fired pizza which was excellent. We weren’t super hungry otherwise we might have tried one of the charcuterie plates.

This was my first visit. The food was delicious. The service was very friendly. I will say the restaurant was not extremely busy during our visit yet the drink orders did take some time to arrive after ordering and they accidentally brought the wrong drinks. That would not deter me from a return visit, just something to note. Overall an enjoyable trip.

The food was excellent and the drinks were tasty (although I had to have the waitress explain some of the ingredients of both). They didn’t have air conditioning, though, and it was hot and humid outside, so it was a little uncomfortable.

Came here for my wife’s birthday! Good and service was great! I wish they had opened the windows. It was a lovely breezy day to do that. Had the chefs selection board and the grilled calamari to start. I love all of the different types of cured meats and cheeses they provide.
We all split 2 pizzas. Margarita and the pepperoni and sausage. Both were delicious!
And for desert we had each tried all 3 available. All very tasty. We then went up to the rooftop bar for a drink after. Overall great experience yet again!

This has been my favorite downtown restaurant for a long time, but when I went recently it was outstanding! The food is always amazing with its seasonal changing menu, and the environment and staff are always lovely, but they really were outstanding this time. We were running late for a show, and our server Brigit was amazing to help us get there on time. We got our food super quickly and she was incredibly accommodating and attentive to help us. Thank you all so much!

The service was good, but the food was not really my style. I don’t mind spending money on a good meal and I’m always up for trying something and different. However, I thought the dishes were overpriced, overly complicated and the flavors did not mesh well. Then, to make it even better, all 3 of us were sick the next day with stomach issues. I was also extremely disappointed in the atmosphere. The tables were very close together and the room was very noisy making it difficult to talk and to hear one another. The 3rd floor bar was listed as a “rooftop” bar with views of the city, but it was indoors with a tiny balcony overlooking the wall of the building next door. Overall, I felt like we paid for a 5 star experience and received a 2 star one.
