The y have a very friendly and welcoming staff. We enjoy the half-price on wine (by the bottle) Wednesdays. The food is consistently good and the wait staff and manager ensure everyone is happy. Great neighborhood restaurant.

I’ve been here several times with a friend who’s very particular about what he eats. He lives in Brooklyn but doesn’t mind the trip. From several neighborhood choices, this is my favorite.

We live across the street and have been here a few times. The pizza and all the pasta dishes we've had our outstanding, as is the Tiramisu. Last Friday, my husband got the mixed seafood grill, and it was both healthy and delicious. I had the branzino, which could have been a bit more flavorful, especially the vegetables on the side, which were steamed, but bare. Of course, it was a healthy choice! But I'd get the lasagna (so, SO good) or any of the pizzas...the pasta with wild boar sauce is also a winner. They also have great, affordable wines, and make wonderful martinis. All this, coupled with the great service, and it's an A restaurant in the neighborhood!

This place could be so much better but it just isn’t. Their pizza is good but their salads and entrees are flavorless. Brnaxibo woth mixed vegetables should have flavor and it had zero. The service was friendly but not attentive. We waited a long time between water availability which is disappointing. Going out to dinner should be more than functional.

The food at Mezzogiorno is very good, very authentic Italian. The decor and physical appearance leaves something to be desired. We took some people for our of town for dinner and my husband was very embarrassed with the restaurant. The owners should improve the looks to look like less of a coffee shop as the prices are not coffee shop prices. We are very surprised that it is not made to look more like an upscale restaurant. Is it the fact that it is on 108th and Broadway? We need upscale restaurants on the Upper Westside.

Not recommended. The UWS location is convenient, the place is comfortable, the prices okay for a neighborhood dinner, and the service okay, but the food is disappointing. A seafood platter consisted of small, bland shrimp, a watery scallop, and a mysterious strip of grilled chicken (?!), all reminiscent of cafeteria food. A request to replace grilled tomato--an odd side dish in November-with vegetables was handled nicely, but the vegetables, like the seafood, had no taste or appeal. What's needed is someone to compose and execute dishes worthy of the location, and that includes finding good suppliers. Until then, there are better options.

Went to Mezzogiorno again the other day for pizza and was dismayed to find that they'd changed the menu. Our favorite pizza, "Regina," with mozzarella bufala, was gone. So was a great artichoke salad. We were grateful that at the remaining pizzas hadn't changed in quality, but -- why? Why change something good?

I particularly liked the calamari appetizer. It was fresh and zesty. There is am emphasis on combining leafy greens into otherwise normally less textured plates, like fresh frizee with veal and arugula with pasta. Next time I will try a pizza.

Eggplant fritters lacked any notion of eggplant. Pastas were quite good and properly cooked. Service was very attentive and well meaning if a bit inexperienced.

Ambiance in the outter room is lacking. Is in need of a renovation.

Fantastic, as always. Have been coming to Mezzogiorno's since 1999, when it was on Spring Street. My Employer took me there for lunch to welcome me to the firm. My first job after graduating. Had the Lasagna Bolognese and haven't stopped coming back for it since. My favorite/only Lasagna to eat out in all of NYC.

It was the birthday of an old friend and he is very fussy about what he eats. We've eaten here a few times (very tasty pasta dish) but this time I tried something new. It was beautifully presented and delicious. I finished it, something I rarely do when I eat out. I hope they stay around for a long time. Bravissimo!

$17 cocktails? Are they kidding? They trained the waitresses to talk up the special cocktails that are not listed with a price. Very deceptive. Service was very slow and inattentive even though the restaurant was empty when we arrived. We shared a strip steak and caprese salad. Both were very good and plentiful. So one can get a good meal at high prices if willing to put up with the negatives.

I had dinner there with a close friend who lives in the neighborhood. We usually prefer to have lunch at Mezzogiorno because it can be quite noisy in the evening. However, it wasn't very crowded and the host put us at a table in a relatively quiet corner. The food was very good (all three courses) and the service fine. I had a cup of plain old regular coffee (not espresso or cappucino) at the end of the meal and I'd have to say it was the best coffee I've had in a restaurant in a long time.

We decided to have a meal in honor of "the first full moon after the Summer Solstice" and drink some good wine. The very reasonable corkage fees, availability of decanters and good wine glasses makes this place very wine friendly. We brought 2 bottles of Ken Wright Pinot Noir from 2008 and shared appetizers and salads and had main courses and a dessert. All in all an excellent meal and a wonderful experience. The waitress is convivial and attentive as is the entire staff, and, the food is excellently prepared from fresh and pristine ingredients.
