“Fun concept, but food is bland.”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We decided to try this place with friends since the restaurant was in the Entertainment Book and the reviews seemed positive. The coupon entitled us to a percentage off the bill.

For four people, their menu "recommends" 20-items for $64. Otherwise, each small tapas dish is $3.50.

When we gave them the coupon from the Entertainment Book, they did not honour the discount on the $64 price quoted on their menu, but charged us the full price of $3.50 for each dish (totaling $70) and deducted the coupon off of that amount instead. It's not a huge difference, but it was the principal of the thing, and we stated to the waitresses that the promotion is misleading.

Regardless, some of the food we had was pretty good, but most of the dishes looked better than they tasted. Many did not have much taste at all and were quite bland.

Although we had a fun evening, with all the great restaurants in this city, we will not be going back to Mezzetta, coupon or not.

“Great, very reasonably priced food”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

This restaurant serves Middle Eastern appetizers sized mezzes (tapas). They recommend ordering 10 dishes for two people, priced at $32.00. They have a large selection of salads, dips, vegetarian, and meat dishes to choose from. We especially enjoyed the Sultan’s Stew, the Green Beans, the creamed cauliflower, and the chicken and lamb shish kebobs. The desserts, Baklava and apricots in cream, as well as the Turkish coffee were quite good. The service was pleasant. We were quite happy that they spaced the arrival of the different dishes so we were able to enjoy 2 or 3 dishes at a time.

“A great evening!”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Delicious, inexpensive Middle-Eastern tapas. The restaurant has a cozy, unpretentious feel. When we arrived, the place was packed (Saturday night, 8 PM). If you have a large party, make a reservation. The service was very welcoming and friendly. The price point is perfect. Our party of six ordered the chef selection - our table was flooded with around 30 delicious dishes. Only 40 pp incl. drinks, dessert tax and tip. Wine list could use a little work but that wouldn't stop me from becoming a regular. Love this spot!

“Good food, good selection, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

We've been there 3 times and enjoyed it. There is a great selection of dishes in Tapas form, all very tasty. The string beans are superb and so are the Lamb brochettes and the Moussaka. Service is very good and the atmosphere cozy. Some nights have entertainment too. Dinner for 3 came to about $60 with beer, absolutely worth it.
