The pasta is great there, and most would expect that, but I woukd suggest trying their Osso Buco of their Filet Mignon. Simply amazing.

I’ve been to Mesa de Notte twice and both times were such great experiences. My wife and I went to dinner there tonight, and everything (wine, apps, entrees, and dessert) was fantastic. And the service (Joshua) was superb. This will definitely be our new place to celebrate our anniversary and special occasions. Would seriously recomm ... read more

Food was delicious, staff was polite and efficient. I felt it was loud, somewhat difficult to have conversation. That was my disappointment.

Fa venire l’acquolina in bocca I walked in for takeout on a *word of mouth* recommendation and let me tell you... I'm impressed. The music is perfect, volume is perfect, atmosphere is inviting and cheerful! The place is exceptionally clean and I couldn't think of a better place for authentic Italian. 10/10 food 100% ... read more

We were in Ocala looking at homes for our relocation. Realtor suggested this place for dinner. Pulled in the parking lot and first impression was some concern that it might be a Pizza place that also served some food. When we walked in it was immediately apparent that it was a nice, welcoming restaurant and already...the food smelled ... read more

Food and presentation is excellent.
Andrea Carr via google.com - Jan 23, 2021
It was pretty good. Meat sauce was pretty bland. The wait for Spaghetti and meatballs was ridiculous. Atmosphere was very dark, lights and walls. It was an experience I suppose. I guess I expected more for the Star rating and the prices. On to the next ... read more

Wonderful meal! We look forward to returning!
We are Italian food fans and eat it a lot. This was our first time eating here and we look forward to going back. It was not an inexpensive meal, but it really was worth it. We spent $70 for two entrees, two side salads...and two desserts. We did not buy any alcohol. My husband's entree was chicken and sausage over pasta in a le ... read more

Visiting Crystal River and drive an hour and fifteen minutes to grab takeout from this Italian spot in Ocala. The drive and smell of food on the way back was worth the wait. The braised short rib with risotto with the red wine sauce was fantastic, and the carrot cake is a must have.

Vincent Virga via google.com - Jan 7, 2021
My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time recently. The food was incredible. The flavor of the sauces on each of our plates was beyond delicious. In addition, the prices very very reasonable. This will definitely be a place we come back to.

I had dinner with my wife last week, the experience was very good, the seafood was cooked to perfection!! (the best I ever had in any restaurant). Equally amazing was the attentiveness of our waiter James, he really is a professional!! We highly recommend this place.

The food and service was a 10+. The only negative i can say was there was a couple in the table right behind us that fought the whole time. It was very ugly and very upsetting.

Food, service, prices, and atmosphere were really nice. We ordered Cappellinni de Notte (the Pancetta was SOOO flavorful and delightfully fatty), Gnocchi Bolognese, and a sampler. The courtesy rolls with pesto vinaigrette was a great appetizer.

My husband and I have dined here many times in the past and been very happy.

It's in an odd place business is a tad slow sometimes but overall you can't look at foot traffick as the base of a restaurant. This place plays lovely authentic music and it just sets the mood.

Well, after a long trip home to Florida... we arrived at our hotel and chose Mesa de Notte for dinner. Our waiter Jorge so friendly and professional. We each ordered a Caesar salad, we shared an Antipasto & Spaghetti and Meatballs. Jorge recommended the Stags Leap Petite Sirah... so smart. Amazing dinner. Recommend this restaurant.
