Enjoyed dinner with a friend. We shared a warm braised duck salad, and it was plated beautifully on two separate plates for us. Service was just right - very courteous, skillful, and helpful, but not overbearing. Friend had Osso Buco; I had the Chilean Sea...More

Visited Mezzaluna on 5/5/2018. I wish I would spend the time on this review sharing the wonderful food that we experienced. Unfortunately the rudest waiter I have ever experienced overshadowed the quality of the food. His continual asking us for our orders while menus remained...More

My office had our holiday lunch here. The food was amazing. Being half italian, I'm over critical of italian restaurants but La Mezzaluna exceeded my expectations. The pumpkin ravioli were full of flavor. The daily special risotta was light yet filling, and oh so good....More

My wife and I stopped in for a 3:30 lunch. We were able to get the window seat which is like sitting next to an aquarium looking out on Witherspoon. My wife ordered the Black Sea bass special and I had the walnut crusted lamb...More

My friend and I needed a quiet restaurant for an extended conversation over dinner- the first night of my annual visit. Our first choice of restaurant across the street had a live musician playing and was crowded, so we left. La Mezzaluna was what we...More
