If you're looking for some of the best Italian food around, then Mezzaluna is definitely the right place. The family run business offers a warm welcome and vibrant atmosphere which will make for a special night out, every night.
With a decor showcasing low beams and candlelight the atmosphere is very much that of a cosy trattoria, even before you choose what you're actually eating. The extensive menu includes homemade and authentic pizza, pasta, fish, chicken, salads and veal ensuring that even the fussiest eater will go home happy.
Our favourites on the menu included the calamari fritti (deep fried squid) - although there are so many tempting antipasti options that it would be easy to gorge on those and not even make it into the main part of the menu. If you do though there's much to enjoy. We recommend trying a calzone - a special folded pizza which looks a little like a Cornish Pasty in shape but tastes out of this world, especially the Primavera version which is filled with a ricotta cheese sauce, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, mozzarella and parmesan. The house pizza (goats cheese, buffalo mozzarella, bresaola and fresh cherry tomatoes) is a memorable and lovely combination of flavours too - and that's before we've even turned our attention to all the pasta options and the grills of fresh fish, steak, veal and chicken all served with mouthwatering sauces and accompaniments.
Great food in a welcoming atmosphere with attentive and warm service - this is a perfect taste of Italy.
