Greeted by friendly host upon arrival. Service for drinks was very quick. Appetizer and main courses were served piping hot and were amazing! Our waiter was very friendly and our glasses never went empty. Will definitely be returning soon!

Food and service was great but we ate under the tent outdoors and they did not have any heaters. We were frozen by end of meal and food got cold. they were un prepared for weather.

One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Can’t say enough about this restaurant. Great service, friendly staff, good music, tremendously good food! Our meal was scrumptious! We will be going back! Highly recommend for anyone wanting a delicious meal with full value, good service and relaxing atmosphere.

The appetizers and ambiance were lovely. My entree was supposed to be risotto, but... it was just rice. There was no creaminess. It’s like they washed the rice after cooking it. The scallops in the entree were supposed to be pan-seared... there was no sear. They were most likely poached. My date really enjoyed his risotto though. It was a different risotto dish and more properly resembled risotto.

This is now our favorite Italian Restaurant when we visit the Annapolis, VA area. The decor is beautiful and cozy and it is quiet enough to actually have a conversation with your dining companion. Their food is locally sourced and is very fresh. Their menu changes seasonally and it had a wide variety of dishes to choose from. Absolutely everything we ordered was delicious. The Scallop Risotto was the best I have ever had and my husband loved the Charred octopus appetizer. My daughters loved the oysters Rockefeller and fried green tomatoes appetizers. Our waiter Jesse made our overall dining experience perfect. He is superb at what he does and he made us feel very welcome. We ate at other restaurants while visiting Annapolis, VA but our dining experience here topped them all. We will most definitely dine here again when we return for our next visit.

23rd anniversary and we were treated very well, the service was excellent. We were treated to a free dessert after our meal, although it was free I have a complaint my wife ordered the Crème brûlée and I am sorry to say but tastes like someone poured butane over it and then tried to light it. The fuel left us with a taste we could not forget. Other than that we had a wonderful time and I ordered the Cannolis and they were awesome.

Always a pleasure. Mark provides excellent service, as does Josè as restaurant manager. Delicious food, served outside on a beautiful day, next to the vegetable garden ~ feels like sitting at an outdoor café in the Old Country. Serene setting. Lovely.

As always, a wonderful experience ~ calamari were crisp & crusty, Ora king salmon was melt-in-your-mouth ~ like custard! ~ in an original presentation. Mark was a superb waiter, summer salad drowned a bit in too much dressing but still tasty... good to meet with dear friends in such a lovely outdoor venue ~ away from the noise & bustle of Ritchie Hwy. Thank you for taking such careful precautions ~ so happy to support a company who does good for & in the community.

Another great experience for my teenager's b-day dinner. Delicious apps, cocktails, and tremendous entrées. The complimentary dessert for the birthday girl was another nice, and appreciated, touch. Cafe Mezzanote is my favorite Italian spot.

As usual, a delightful and special experience...so lovely to be outside, table well distanced from others, waitstaff efficient and friendly. Josè is exceptional as restaurant manager, & personally brought out my fried green tomato appetizer: delicious! The Ora King Salmon on my salad was like creamy custard: melt in your mouth! So fortunate to have Café Mezz less than 10 minutes from home.

Veal Scalopini marsala was excellent. other in the party ordered the pasta and red sauce.
pasta was mushy and the sauce was like a very thick paste, and too much of it. would not order the pasta again, or maybe with a different sauce.

Arrived there at 6:45pm per our reservation. We were seated immediately. Restaurant wasn’t crowded but not empty either.

The service was great and the food was really good and worth the money we paid for it.
