The special menu had few surprises so I went with a ciopetto which had half way decent sea food but not enough of it .... Companion ordered an overpriced riggatoni meal... More

Have always wanted to give this a go as I've heard people rave about it. So glad hubby and I decided this past Friday to stop in for dinner arriving a little after 6. Although we did not have reservations we were able to find a table for two but I highly recommend that you make reservations as the restaurant... More

This is a terrific dinning venue. Nice wine & beer list ( hubby would prefer draft beer). Excellent menu, prompt but not annoying service. Small but varied menu with interesting specials. Owner is " hands on". Scallop dishes are " to die for". We consider this our neighborhood restaurant. Give it a try.

I arrived at the Albany airport, coming home from a long week away. While I waited for my husband to pick me up, I loaded the Open Table app to see if we could do the impossible -- find a reservation on a Saturday night in Albany. I was pleased to see that MezzaNotte had an opening at a convenient... More

The greens were exc quality and very yummy. My poor husband had steak tips with risotto. Risotto was amazing however he was served 4 tiny steak... More

A lovely late summer evening in the Capital District ...... My husband and I decided to dine at MezzaNotte because they have a lovely outdoor patio..... We arrived and were seated outside. the wait staff was most attentive and our server seemed to love giving advice and suggestions. We ordered drinks ....I had a sea breeze with grey goose served...

This Ristorante is a favorite of ours. We had reservations (you should on a weekend). It is not a large dinning venue, but decor is warm and inviting. Nice bar area with a varied wine selection (sorry no draft beer). Dine in the main room, at the bar, or in a small outdoor area. The menu is not large, but... More

VERY SLOW service even when not busy. Food very average and not at all worth the price. Wait staff disappears so it is very hard to get things you may need after your meal arrives. Staff does not seem to value customers. There are other choices in the area so I would recommend skipping this one.

We usually stick close to home but decided to give it a try. We tried the restaurant a few years back and never returned. We were very pleased that we did. The waiter was great and had suggestions for us that were perfect. The portions were not too large, just enough. The short rib was amazing and the clam sauce... More
