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.
We had the worst waitress with absolutely no personality or congeniality. Food was mediocre and overpriced.
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.
Excellent food and good ambience, prices are a little expensive but worth it, in front of the sea , a good experience!
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!
Charming host. Excellent chef. Convenient location UWS!
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.
Despite the fact that the first wine we chose was unavailable, and the pizza oven was not on for the night, still had an enjoyable dinner. Food was delicious, perfect portions.
Great service, good food and wine. My grandson loved to see how pizza is made. Friendly and accomodating staff. Wil come back.
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.
Truly a neighborhood gem. Very pleasant atmosphere (marble top tables). Smallish menu, but pretty high quality. Decent wine list. Friendly service.
Food was very good and service was excellent! Nice place in the neighborhood.
excellent authentic northern italian food in a not particularly inviting or cozy setting.
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.
It's a pleasant place, but extremely noisy, so we will not return for dinner.
Best Italian for miles in any direction. And we're talking Manhattan!
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?
We loved this restaurant when it was done south. When they moved up to the present locale we followed. However, poor poor service and it is in the middle of nowhere for travelers. Sorry to say.
Awesome, authentic Italian food. Wonderful service, made a friend's birthday really special.
Always great food, service and drinks
