    It’s fine for before a performance Downtown. The food was decent, nothing super special, but tasty enough. Waitress was sweet. The tables and chairs were super wobbly, awkward, uncomfortable etc. just sort cheap furnishings.

    I was part of a group of three couples who ate an early dinner (5:30) prior to going to see a performance at Heinz Hall. We were seated near the street windows. Very attractive ambiance and surroundings. We had a very attentive server. I had a delicious cocktail, and my date had wine. My date and I split a nice chopped salad which was plenty for two. She ordered the rigatoni - we both loved it. I ordered the duck on a bed of polenta - it was not hot, and the polenta was way too salty and runny. I regretted by choice and would have much preferred the rigatoni. The tip was automatically added to the bill.

    Mezzo was extremely average this time. First time back in a few years and much more underwhelming than I remember. Everything (food, service, etc) was fine, nothing outstanding yet nothing terrible. It was just OK. Apps: small charcuterie (basically just meats and cheese, no jams, fruits, nuts, accompaniments), fried zucchini (great texture, salty), and stuffed meatballs (mozz in middle wasn’t even melty) Entree: bolognese (I believe it was supposed to be a flat noodle yet it came out with rigatoni, sauce had a strange sweet/warm spice flavor) Dessert: apple cider donut cake (very dense, not super flavorful, meh)

    Gorgeous spot with great staff. Convenient location. Only complaint was the charcuterie board, we were underwhelmed for the price. All other food and drinks were excellent and priced appropriately. Will definitely be back!

    Their slicer was broken so they would not make a charcuterie board. Apparently they don't have knives?? The food was ok but I would not recommend this place. Eat downstairs or upstairs skip Mezzo.

    Fun place but somewhat over priced for the food. Pumpkin spaghetti was $24 and adding bread was additional $6. It’s normal for eating down town. Unique space, attentive wait staff. Will dine there again if we need to eat in town.

    We had a fantastic time. Everything we had to eat and drink was great. The fried zucchini and bread basket were really good. It was my birthday so I got a free dessert. The peanut butter cake was amazing. Our server, Nicholas was awesome!! I will definitely be back.

    From host to server, I was treated very well on a busy Saturday night. Food was fine. Wine good. Salad good, but while olives were a nice addition to the arugula and grated pecorino, not sure the fingerling potatoes worked. Pear and prosciutto pizza had good crust but not enough pear, and cheese and meat didn't seem best ingredients. And for $20, I would have expected better. Dessert was most flavorful, but apple cider cake was really a glorified muffin. But everything showed potential, and I certainly would be open to a repeat visit.

    The Caesar Salad was drenched in dressing! The pulled beef pasta was flavorful but stringy, my rigatoni Bolognese was not very flavorful and the veggies were crunchy, not how a meat sauce should be made! Over all the waitress Kayla was the best part of the night!

    Very nice evening at Mezzo, I had only ever been to Emporio and I now will have a difficult time choosing between the two! The pizza was outstanding! The atmosphere was warm and comfortable, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our waiter could have been a little friendlier and more attentive to our table, they almost seemed annoyed when we asked questions about the menu, but our overall first experience was great.

    What an incredible place to have dinner!!! This came as a recommendation to me and I owe him a debt of gratitude. This was for a business dinner of 5 people. Four of us were visiting from other states. I wanted to showcase Pittsburgh as a very nice city. Wow did I make the right choice

    Menu looked good. Pepperoni pizza way too hot/person who ordered it could not eat it. Pasta with meat sauce had very strong nutmeg taste (some sort of departure from a traditional recipe). Others enjoyed their food. Many wines and beers not available. Waitress was busy and sometimes needed reminding of our requests. Great ambiance. Good for large groups. May go back but choose different foods.

    “Meh” dining experience. Our server was friendly, but the food left a lot to be desired. Scallops were over seasoned and overcooked, and meatball was still extremely pink around the cheese. Location is good, and it was open air since the weather was nice.

    Just be prepared for a lot of the dishes to be overly spicy and filled with pepper. Mixed green salad with peaches was very flavorful and tasty. But had a lot of pepper. Bread was very fresh. Had flavorful butter and oil. Linguine dish was super spicy!!Had to return it. Was not asked if I wanted another meal or anything else at all. We’re not asked if we needed more water, or more drinks. I just wouldn’t return here. And it was the first time going.

    So disappointed... my $25 rigatoni w/ vodka sauce was undercooked, somehow over-spiced and underseasoned, with a sad shell of half a buffalo mozzarella ball on it. To be clear undercooked means under cooked not al dente.
