I have not been to that restaurant and have no opinion about it.

But..... Would you order Southern Fried Chicken at an Indian Restaurant that specializes in curry dishes from India?

Generally speaking... for restaurants... especially theme/specialty restaurants, I have a rule; I stick with a restaurant's dishes that are part of primary theme/specialty!

I assume that theme/specialty restaurants that offer, off-theme dishes, do it to attempt to appease, the one person in the party, that does not like their main style of food! Their goal is to not be passed over when a small or large group is choosing a restaurant.

For example; if we go to an Italian Restaurant... I do not go there to order American/British type food! More times than not... it has lead to either a mediocre or poor experience.

Meza Luna sucks! Besides, why would anyone go to an Italian restaurant and order Prime Rib?

You know after the last BS posts about Mezza Luna I went there with my wife to see what was up, this was not our first visit there. We were seated, the place was packed. The waitress comes and takes our drink order and after a short while comes back says sorry for the wait here's an extra drink for your wait. Ordered our meal Veal Cutlet Parm. didn't even need the knife to cut it. Meal was delicious as it was the other times we went there. All I can say we haven't had that problem.

I remember years ago Ponderosa started serving lobster tail to add to your meal. That didn't last. LOL

Hi newguy: Dis closure I have never been to Mezzaluna, in fact I don't even know where it is. However, I one of my favorites is a nice steak with a side dish of pasta and a glass of wine. So I could order a steak or prime

The nonsequitur here is that because it advertises itself as an Italian restaurant well then that's the menu o focus on. Heck the owners may not even be of Italian heritage. finally a restaurant that puts itself out as upper class ought to be able to turn out a good prime rib. Even I can do that

We've been to Mezza Luna many times. Never had a problem. We always choose Italian dinners since it's an Italian restaurant. Last night, for example, I had the Penne Bolognese and Linda ordered a Shrimp Parmagiana. Both were excellent. In fact, we've never had a bad meal at Mezza Luna. My wife says their sauce is the best she's had, and I agree.

When I am appointed King of North America, I will decree that the incorrect use of the word "sucks" is eliminated. Low, offensive and another example of the acceptance of the 'dumbing down of America' by those who should know better.

Boy Howdy. Over two thousand posts, harping on a meal.

And bringing out folks who must have got up with a headache.
