Top notch service. Excellent pacing: Cocktail, salad, appetizer, entree all arrived when they should.
Val is fantastic.

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

Although I have dined multiple times at Mezza Notte this visit was disappointing. It took almost an hour to be served our entrees, which was excessive as the restaurant wasn't that busy.
Also, the food was tasty and I asked for a "substitution" of spinach instead of eggplant in the Rigatoni but there were both the spinach and the eggplant. I specifically asked for no eggplant as I have a food sensitivity to it.
I'm hoping it was just an "off night" for the restaurant.
Because of its' past history we will try it again.

We have been to MezzaNotte several times in the last year and have never been disappointed in any way. Every dish has been thoughtfully designed and carefully prepared, the table service has been superb, and typically the ambiance is tranquil enough to enjoy the meal. Note: We had an early dinner reservation this time, at 17:30, and our experience was disrupted by a shrieking child at a nearby table. In future we hope to avoid this type of scene by dining later in the evening.

I have been frequenting MN for several years on my many visits to Albany area for business. Consistently wonderful food and presentation, service. Only suggestion might be to broaden the menu a bit, but what they offer and produce is excellent.

Mezza Note is an awesome restaurant. The food and service was excellent. The restaurant was noisy but the staff quickly asked its loud patrons to quiet down as it was disturbing other guests. I was appreciative of the gesture on behalf of the staff. I would definitely go there again.
