Had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant and it all turned out to be true. Excellent staff who are friendly and actually care about the people they are serving. Very good menu from appetizers to entrees of a true Italian style. The plates are aesthetically presented with sides for the most part on separate plates. Great wine... More

Delicious dinner and good service. I had seafood with black risotto, my husband had lamb shank. I would suggest making reservations. We will definitely be back.

Excellent appetizers, particularly the fried calamari. Entrees were good sized and well seasoned, the pasta was al dente in my linguini and clams (though a tad salty). The risotto was perfectly cooked, bread was warm and plentiful. My only criticism is that the place was a little noisy due to the tiled floor, and was hard to hear conversation clearly.... More

We had never been to this restaurant, but I had heard it mentioned by others, so I thought it would make a good choice for a special evening. We went off the menu an both ordered shrimp parmigiana. We also had the calamari for a appetizer. The shrimp were perfect, very plump and fresh. The calamari was tender and delicious.... More

We were about 30 minutes early for our reservation, but seated immediately. The service was excellent....very attentive. The food was wonderful, beginning with the Portabella Leek Soup....divine! The rolls were yummy, too...garlicky and served hot. Veal dish was pounded thin, and the side of angel hair with garlic and oil was soooo good. We would have loved to have tried... More

Five star restaurants are few in Marion County but some, such as Mesa de Notte, should be able to climb to that lofty shelf. We've eaten there several times over the years and it is certainly good enough to revisit once or twice a year. The food itself is very good but minor shortfalls persist. The main one is the...

We had a very good meal here after golf. The soup and bread were very tasty as was the salad. The entrée was also excellent and probably a little too much, but loved it. The coffee was also very good. But the highlight of the evening was the owner's visit to our table and the lively conversation on his heritage.... More
