“Yummy food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

My husband and I ate a nice dinner here, despite having trouble finding the restaurant. While we were promptly seated, the service was slow. A family runs the place - Mom cooks, Dad and son wait tables. We had come in earlier in the day to make a reservation, even though only one other table was taken when we arrived at 7:30. The owners do not speak much English and were not the warm and fuzzy types, but the food was delicious and the portions were large. The Carbonara was delicious - try it!

“Local cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Mezzaluna, tucked away near Piazza Raineri, has a warm atmosphere. The cuisine is local and service is friendly. Prices are reasonable and it's family friendly. They have about the best Spaghetti Carboara I've ever eaten!

“A local favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is where the locals get their carbonara fix. All the pastas and salads are first rate, but the carbonara is exceptional. I also love the ambience of a converted cantina. Great place run by great people.

“Great carbonara in a terrific atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We ate here early in May as we headed south to Puglia. On our return trip north we looked forward to our stay in Orvieto so we could visit Mezza Luna again for the pasta. I'm sure the restaurant is loaded with tourists during the summer, but in the 'off season' it appears to be 'locals only'.

“Yup, the carbonara is everything people say it is”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Yeah, the carbonara was worth overlooking everything else on the menu for. Seriously, I don't know what it is that they do with it but it was that good. We went for lunch so that we could avoid the crowds talked about in these reviews.
