The food is quite good but it's far too loud to talk without shouting. The prices are too high, especially for a loud, cramped space. Great iced tea, wonderful pizza & salads.

The host is not friendly or welcoming. The experience is probably better if you are part of the "club" that gets preferential seating and treatment. Good food that's not worth it because of the cold service.

Best italian food in town. The service is great and even though the line is long, its worth the wait! Best iced tea i've had in my life and although the place is a bit cramped, it's what makes Mezzaluna so special. I recommend this to every single one of you.

If you don't care about squeezing in to get a table and being crowded the food is consistently good and the service very good as well. The buffalo mozzerella appetizer is great as are the pastas and the specials always fresh and excellent. Best to sit at the car with a glass of wine and get and app or a pizza...not a great place to bring kids either but I find myself there quite often especially during lunch.

They have delicious Lasagna that is worth trying. I will definitely eat there again.

mezzaluna if my absolute favorite restaurant in nyc. i eat here about 4 times a week. all the food is fresh and the staff is super friendly. yes, it is true that it is small and often feels cramped, but this is just the best place. as for the food... first off, the iced tea is a must. best iced tea in the city. the pollanca salad is my favorite salad, although the tropicale is pretty good too. the calamari appetizer is also delicious. the pasta is also great. i would recommend the black linguini with shrimp, it is a little spicy sometimes and is spectacular. the penne alla vizanzio is also great and so is the linguini with clams. the thin crust pizza is also superb. make sure to ask for the spicy olive oil to use with the pizza. it is a great touch.

A friend and I had lunch at Mezzaluna -- a small, intimate restaurant that has been around for several years now. The food is quite wonderful, but the place is noisy and the wait staff has an attitude (at least our waiter did). I had the grilled calamari as my entrée - tender and tasty, served with baby arugula and shaved fennels. Very nice. My friend had lasagna bolongnese. She loved it. We shared a panna cotta, presented with freshly prepared blueberry sauce. Not too sweet and smoothly textured. But the real winner here is the espresso -- full-bodied, intense, not bitter and with a thick crema. Incidentally, the olive oil they bring to dunk the bread in is not good. The prices are reasonable for Upper East Side.
