We had a lovely meal Valentines weekend. We were not there on the actual Valentines day but there was a set menu for Valentines weekend. We were unaware of this which was fine but I wish we had known prior. Our meal ended up being excellent and our server was great. We were just looking for different options that they had on the regular menu. We were also upstairs which didn't have quite as much charm is downstairs. But all in all it was a nice meal.

Always very good food. We had a limited menu available to us as it as the weekend following Valentines Day, however the Chilean Sea Bass was available which was excellent.

We felt the calamari was too much on the sweet side for us, but many would enjoy it more.

There are only a few lower cost wines, but we were aware of that when we went and chose one that we considered a mid-price that was excellent.

Great place for a special meal.

Made a 9pm reservation on Valentine’s Day. We arrived 10 minutes early and went to the bar. Around 9:25pm we checked the status of our table and we were told “you’ll be seated next” and the hostess apologized saying the kitchen was backed up.
4 other couples who may or may not have had reservations were then seated. We did not get a table until 9:45pm. We should have just ate at the bar as the staff there were excellent.

I made a last minute reservation for Valentine's Day. The owner was very accommodating and we were able to get a high top in the bar area. Very friendly and attentive server (shoutout to A.J.) The food was INCREDIBLE 🤤 We couldn't stop raving about it!! It will be a dining experience I will never forget. Thanks Mezzanotte ❤

Everything was as we expected and as we experienced in previous visits. The service was prompt and cordial. The food was very good and hot when delivered to the table. The noise level was minimal since we had a reservation for 5:30PM

Great job by everyone.

All four of us were very happy with our double-date at MezzaNotte. The appetizers, especially the salad, was ample and delicious. Two of us chose the halibut--moist and tasty. Even splurged and got cognacs after our meal just to hang out a bit longer.

The service is always excellent. The seafood pasta special was fresh. I always enjoy the Branzino with the crispy skin and roasted potatoes.

Food was fantastic as was the service. It's been a while since we have been there and we are looking forward to dining more often now that they have expanded their bar area - the place looks great!

MezzaNotte is my favorite Albany Restaurant. The menu is creative, including items like Duck Meatballs and a Caviar and Scallop entree, both of which were delicious. Every course of the meal was A+ and the incredible service from our waiter heightened our dining experience. I will return soon.

We enjoyed a family birthday dinner at MezzaNotte, the food and service was outstanding! Our waitress went out of her way to help us navigate the menu, and, she even went to consult with the chef when our son wanted to bring home a leftover bone for his dog. Found out it might splinter, so he nixed that idea! It was our first time dining there and everyone is already thinking about going back as soon as possible!

Lovely from beginning to end, (bread and tapenade, to appetizer, to main courses (fish of the day, pasta), to desserts). Everything was perfectly prepared, and with the creativity that gives a dish a special touch without trying too hard to be “creative”. Wine by the glass was well selected for good values. Not inexpensive, but the quality fully justified the price ranges. Layout and quiet were also suited for a special romantic supper (but would be great for any other too). As first-time guests we were not so sure when we saw the location right on the highway. But once we stepped in, everything felt right.

MezzaNote is always excellent. Interestingly prepared entrees and other dishes, great specials, good wine list, and terrific service--definitely several notches above average.

Another wonderful New Year's Eve meal! Our server was charming and knowledgeable, attentive but not intrusive. Our meals were excellent as always. I have meal restrictions that limit my choices, but I always find something unique and delicious, even on a limited Holiday menu. We will definitely be back again!

The Christmas Eve menu was extremely condensed. To make things worse the restaurant had run out of some of the entrees. Extremely overpriced for what we received.

Since it is a bit of a ride for us we don't visit Mezze Notte often enough. Our dinner was excellent, all we could have asked for. Staff was friendly and helpful. The half portion section of menu is an enlightened idea. It allowed us to try various foods that would not be practical with full portions. Everything was cooked to perfection. The only exception the Linguine with clams could have been warmer and a little more sauce.

The smoked salmon was a tasty appetizer and the perfect amount for 2 to share. The branzini was so delicious it melted in your mouth. The rabbit ragu with papardelle is a favorite. The service is always excellent. Bread is freshly baked and hard to resist.

Love their new addition to the bar area and tables to have a cocktail before dinner. Outstanding meals, appetizers, wine and cocktails with one of the most pleasant servers in the area-Jessica you rock! Not your average Italian restaurant with red sauce on everything, this establishment keeps the menu fresh with new items and nightly specials keeping the customers wanting more after each visit. Cudos to the owners and staff for keeping this place one of our top favorites:)
