10 of us went to enjoy a meal the Saturday after Thanksgiving before seeing a movie. Food was delicious as always, and service was terrific. It is a little pricey but it is worth it.
The hotel I was staying in recommended this place and I’m certainly glad they did! My server was pleasant and knowledgeable, and very attentive. She recommended the Branzino which was absolutely stellar! I had the pleasure of meeting the Chef, Sergio, who served the fish for us at the table which was quite the show. It’s unfortunate I don’t come into Wilmington more as this restaurant left me wanting for more. Anyone staying in Wilmington I highly suggest checking this place out, it is a true gem.
Great food, great drinks. Never disappointed!
I had high hopes but was terribly disappointed. We arrived for our reservation on time and were seated within a few minutes. After waiting more than 15 minutes we asked if anyone was serving our table. We eventually did have a server take our drink, appetizer and entree orders at the same time. We also told the server that we were seeing a show so time had become an issue, the reply should have been that they would ensure our meals were prioritized, bu instead it was that it depended on how quick the kitchen was.
A full 45 minutes after our reservation time we received our appetizers. When our entrees arrived we had to ask for the check since we would have to eat quickly and leave.
The food was uneven with some dishes being very good while others were lacking.
Unfortunately we won’t be back. For a show night and a full restaurant they were terribly understaffed.
Went on a Saturday pre Theater. Very busy but our server did a great job.
We always have a good meal at Cafe Mezzanotte. The food and service is good and the drinks are excellent.
We were a party of eight and most were happy with their meal. The room was quiet and we were able to converse easily. Service was prompt and the server was very pleasant. The location was excellent and convenient to the theater.
The lunch menu has many choices that are reasonably priced. Portions could have been a bit larger, but the food was very good. The amaretto almond dessert cake was delicious and I would order it again.
We went to the restaurant for the first time on a Thursday night for our anniversary. We have lived in Wilmington for 25 yrs and have never been there. I am so upset that I was not informed about how great this place is! We will definitely be back. Great service, great drinks, excellent food. Loved every minute of it!!
The atmosphere was charming, the waitstaff was very attentive, the food was excellently prepared and attractively presented. An awesome experience
It is a real find. The food was delicious, “high class” Italian cuisine. The chef even came to our table and talked with us for a bit. We came to celebrate a birthday, but we won’t wait for another special occasion. We’ll definitely be back.
Disappointing. Went for outdoor dining on a late summer night. Seating was fine. That’s about it.
Appetizers were slow coming out. Calamari was bland. Five salads showed up, but we only ordered four. Fifth guest waited for another five minutes for their app. All salads and apps tasted like supermarket salads. Dressings seemed out of a jar.
Entrées were next. Ugh. Again showed up at vastly different times. One pasta dish seemed microwaved because some fettuccine was hot but some was iced cold. Certainly not made fresh to order. The tomato sauce was the horrendous. Right out of a can. No seasoning. No texture. No flavor. My Fra Diavalo was a disgrace which I didn’t eat. The shrimp on it were fine, but the pasta and sauce shamefully - pasta not cooked well and no spice. NO SPICE IN A FRA DIAVALO. none!!!
Told the waitress about our disappointment when she eventually came back to our table but she that’s a shame and that was it. No manager ever stopped by. We paid and left.
No way I would recommend or go back.
Always a great meal. My favorite restaurant in Wilmington!
Our group of six thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Our entrees included the filet mignonette, veal chop, as well as a couple of the pastas. Those who had dessert were delighted.
This was such a great find! The food and the drinks were superb. This is the first place I’ve been to that even makes its own gluten free pasta. I will definitely be going back.
A most pleasant experience.
A perfect venue for a relaxed pre-theatre dinner. Food was outstanding including the special pasta dish and veal. An elegant alternative to the traditional Italian joints on Trolley Square.
Every time our family goes to Cafe Mezzanotte we are impressed by the food and the service - it is not crowded when we go because I think we may be earlier than their normal crowd, but I almost hesitate to post this review because it more people knew about it I would never get a table!
very limited menu but if you want some good food before a show, it would be a good choice.
Food was just ok. My husband struggled to find the lobster in his lobster ravioli. My swordfish was overdone (but the veggies were good). And my mom had the pasta with sausage and mushrooms, which was mediocre. Spectacularly bad service, though. Funny that we had two waitresses fighting over who would wait on our table, and we had to ask to get a water glass refilled... Our waitress did not even know how to use the corkscrew to open the wine. Too many service gaffes to mention. Cafe Mezza—Not!
Food was outstanding. Service was horrible. Waitress didn’t know that Pellegrino was bottled water, appetizer dishes were not cleared for over 30 minutes, ciopinno entree did not have scallops as stated, had to ask for bread even tho dipping oil was on table, 50 minutes waiting for entree, no water was refilled, and waitress asked if we wanted coffee or dessert while presenting our bill. Shame because food was fresh & presentation was perfect.
Entrées are excellent. Always an enjoyable experience. Sergio is the best!
Love coming here. I have never had a meal that was not delicious. Reminds me of my time living in Italy.
The food and service were decent, but not the best I have had.
Food was outstanding and beautifully presented. The homemade mozzarella app was delicious. Definitely would go there again !
We had wine, the smoked salmon bruschetta, carpaccio and a mushroom pasta dish. The pasta came with sausage, but they accommodated us by leaving out the meat and using a few extra mushrooms instead. All of our food was very good. My only complaint was that the pasta dish is described as having a "light" cream sauce, but I found it to be rather rich. I would definitely return here the next time I'm in town.
Excellent food and service!
Great location in downtown Wilmington, happened to be restaurant week, had a great meal with great service.
Enjoyed our first visit here. Will definitely return. Service was great and the food was delicious.
A beautiful venue for classic Italian bistro cooking. The chef is brilliant, the service is fantastic and the mixologist at the bar is outstanding. Go soon!
Keep in mind that we arrived after an afternoon at the theater and it wasn't very crowded. It was around 5pm. But everything was great.
Saw limited menu on table... told to get show patrons out to Playhouse this was necessary. Ironically, service was very slow as it took almost an hour for our dinner to arrive. Good that we had a 5:30 dinner reservation for a 7:30 show! I have been to Mezzanotte on show nights before when serving full menu, and there was no problem getting to the theater on time... go figure?
As always my meal at Cafe Mezzanottte was great. I have never been disappointed.
Service was great. Friendly staff. Loved the drinks and bartender. Nice to meet the Chef! Only somewhat disappointed with the limited menu, understand the reason.
Food was great. Very nice ambiance. They might have been short staffed. Service took a long time.
Food and drinks were really good... service was very slow.
We chose to eat in the bar so that we could done quicker and told our server we had a show to catch. We still waited 45 minutes for 2 simple entrees. The lobster raviolis were excellent, but the sauce was not hot.
Wonderful experience! First time having dinner there and fully enjoyed our time. Everything from the food to the service was amazing. The most authentic Italian you can get in Wilmington.
Excellent gluten free options, but wish gluten free pasta could be spaghetti and not just t was delicious, but too many restaurants use penne for gluten free options.
Service was prompt, helpful, & friendly. Owner & chef Sergio Pellegrino greeted us at our table. A nice personal touch!
