Everything about this evening was great! Love the ambience, food, and staff. This place is a gem out in Albany! Would definitely visit again next time we are in town!

Terrific food and service. Perfect for your go-to familiar place or a special occasion. The beet salad and rabbit ragu were outstanding.

Duck meatballs with polenta appetizer was excellent. Ricotta gnocchi was pillowy soft and very flavorful. Lasagna was lackluster, which surprised us because the server raves about it. Overall great experience and good food

It was quite a night for the staff 9/20/19. They had no electric power, but, gas fed flat top, burners, oven
were on but everything else was OFF. Outstanding job for the staff/chef working with candles and cell phone lights. They didn't miss a beat, in the DARK. Quite romantic....

When we arrived, we were told the restaurant hadn’t had power for 2 days. We never received a call or alerted to this prior to arriving. Other than that, everything was great, besides the fact the dinner my wife wanted wasn’t available since the power was out. Food was great, and our waitress was even better.

2nd time there-anniversary.
The tomatoes were picked at 5 hours before we ate. Enough said.
Wine's great; service, too. Their menu changes seemed based on what was freshest. Go with it.

My husband and I ordered the special: loin of veal wrapped in prosciutto served with beans. It was excellent. Our waitress recognized us from previous dining experiences at the restaurant and she was very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Mezza Notte.

The clams and sausage had just the right spicy tomato sauce. The bronzini had a crispy crust and melted in your mouth. The lobster pasta was excellent. Loved it! The service is always exceptional.

Delicious- however the braciole wasn’t nearly stuffed enough. Portions were slightly smaller than what is common, dessert menu was limited.

This meal at Mezza Notte was like all the others, excellent. We have eaten there at least 8 times over the past few years. Anytime we have important visitors we prefer to take them to Mezza Notte. The food is the closest to true Northern Italian food we have ever found in the States. The duck meatballs appetizer is out of this world tasty!

Wonderful find, thanks to Open Table. We were in Albany area for just one night, but OT reviews steered us to this outstanding restaurant (and note that evaluation comes with 290 reservations in my background, around the world). MezzaNotte was everything you could ask for. Outstanding service, lively crowd making it feel like an exciting evening out, and of course marvelous food. The MezzaNotte salad with fresh figs was a highlight. A slight delay for the table was expertly handled, a sign of a remarkably well run establishment. We do not often stay in Albany, but we do pass through, and now will have a definite dining stop when that happens.

I have been here several times and the food, ambiance, and service is wonderful. The server on Saturday was nothing more than delightful and deserves 5 stars. The restaurant should present daily specials on a scroll served with the menu allowing the diners to think about the choices.

We hadn't been to MezzaNotte for awhile, so it was nice to get back to one of our favorite places. Our table was ready when we arrived, and they seated us in a nice booth in the back. They have special homegrown tomatoes for their salad which are wonderful. Everything we had was delicious!
Great to see that nothing had changed.

Our meals were delicious, service was great, menu is reasonably priced and there is something for any appetite!

We are already planning our next visit. I had the lasagna and companion had the rigatoni siciliano. Both were very good, as was the cantaloupe soup and calamari appetizers.

The beet and berry salad was delicious. The halibut was so fresh and light it melted in your mouth. We also enjoyed the fresh lobster fettuccine and the rigatoni and sausage.

Had the lobster special and most of it was good, would have preferred the sausage cut in smaller pieces and a few more potatoes. Service was wonderful and we enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. Although we could occasionally hear a loud vehicle, it was never annoying
