    The head waiter seemed a little stand offish at first but ended up being very helpful and friendly. The food was amazing. I’d eat the penne chicken everyday if I could.

    We were super impressed with Mezzo & will definitely be back! My pasta was delicious and the girls loved theirs too. It was great to be able to BYO our own wine as well :) 10/10, friendly service too - the waiter even gave us some free aperol spritzes the bar made by accident which was a very welcome treat!

    Mezzo is just around the corner from the Princess Theatre, & was the perfect spot for our pre-theatre catch up & dinner. The mushroom gnocchi , lamb ragu, & penne chicken were the favorite pasta dishes & we all enjoyed the sharing platters. We also appreciated our cheerful waiters & waitress great service. Thanks team Mezzo!

    Food was excellent! Real home style cooking, pity there were only a handful of patrons but maybe Tuesdays are a slow night. Will definitely be back

    We booked pre theatre & first patrons seated. Took manager 15mins to come anywhere near us so we could order a drink. He answered a question about “Happy Hour” very rudely. Restaurant had run out of Cider, Light Beer, Soy Milk. When I requested a coffee, Manager quickly walked away without asking other 4 patrons I was with if they would also like coffees. 3 cubes of chicken in Chicken Penne but the food was nice. Only one waiter on so glad restaurant was quiet or we would never have been served

    Hi, we enjoyed a lovely meal at lunch time today. However after our plates and glasses were cleared we were not asked if we wanted another drink, or a coffee and no dessert menu offered.

    Was unable to supply three drink items from the drinks menu because they had sold out at a private function the day before. No Corona, Cabernet Savignon or Cabernet Merlot.

    It was a quiet Sunday early evening, we went for pre theatre 3 course dinner. The service was fantastic, we were seated in a quiet corner. The entree was yummy, we had the egg plant and the lightly battered calamari. My main course, barramundi was great. Hubby pasta was good and his dessert was yum. I had what seems like the biggest the panna cotta, but was assured it’s the presentation that made it looked big. I couldn’t finish it, but then I already had 2 courses beforehand. The serving size is very generous, the quality and the service, makes Mezzo good value. I chose this restaurant because it was close to Princess Theatre where we watched both parts of Harry Potter, and also because of its good reviews. Mezzo lives up to expectations and I will definitely eat there again.

    This place is always great value and the service is first rate. Only downside was that it was a very warm day and the restaurant was pretty hot !

    I have been to Mezzo twice (each time for early an early dinner before a show) and the food, service and atmosphere have been excellent each time. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the mushroom gnocci is delicious. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Melbourne.

About the restaurant

Mezzo Madness!

Surrounded by Melbourne’s culinary heavyweights at the top end of town, Mezzo holds its own serving traditional Italian food with modern flair. An elegant marble bar divides the space, with casual bar seating overlooking tree-lined Little Bourke Street (the perfect spot for an after-work drink) while behind the bar, the spacious and comfortable dining room beckons. The approachable menu includes Neapolitan-style pizzas and simple yet classic meals such as house made gnocchi and prosciutto-wrapped rolled chicken breast. Mezzo is not only a restaurant and bar but also a great function venue, with the capacity to house 130 cocktail-style or 100 for a sit-down wedding, corporate event, birthday or any other excuse for a party. Flexible menu options are available for groups of all sizes. Mezzo’s trained Italian kitchen brigade and experienced floor staff add the extra edge when it comes to understanding where the food is coming from before it makes it to your table.

Best dish: slow cooked lamb shoulder.
