“Simple food isn’t easy to execute.  It is like performing on a tightrope without a safety net.  Everything shows.”

Tom Colicchio

Our food is made in house, by hand, and from scratch. We source organic and local ingredients at their peak, menus change seasonally.  Eat here or take home~


Looking for take-out?

Our gourmet-to-go freshly-prepared meals are ready-to-heat or ready-to-eat. Call to order.


Looking for a place to dine?

You are welcome to order & dine here, we don’t have waiters, but we do have tables. We have beer, wine, coffee, and espresso drinks featuring Peet’s Coffee & Tea.


Really want wine or beer with your dinner?

We do serve beer & wine…we just got our license!


Our hours:

We open at 3 pm for those late lunches or early dinners…or something sweet with a Peet’s Coffee drink for your afternoon pick-me-up! And if you find yourself hungry after 8 when almost everything in Cambria is closed…no closing early here…we are always open until midnight. Closed on Wednesdays.

The guests at Victoria’s Last Resort have been raving about her food for years!  The private luxury bed & brunch was best known for their dinners…and since Victoria was once a pastry chef, her food is the perfect fit for Mezzo Italiano!

Simple food using the very best local ingredients is the basis for everything we do.  When food is at its peak, the natural flavors shine and the result is extraordinary!


We can talk about how great the food is all day long…you want to read what the guests say, right? Okay, here you go!

Local Farms

The Central Coast has a diverse and robust farming community and we shop directly from our farmers.  We offer vegetarian meals and vegan choices that highlight the local seasonal bounty.

Seasonal Menus

Starting with the very best of the seasonal bounty means selecting food at its peak of freshness. We change menus often and our daily specials are driven by the farmer’s offerings.


Select from our specialty items packaged for you to take home to heat and eat.   Warning: You are going to want to get out the good china.

Open Late-Nightly

Night Owls finally have someplace to dine!  We bake in the evenings, long after most of Cambria has gone to bed.

Gluten free

We have items on our menu that are gluten-free, but we do cook in a kitchen where flour is used so this is not a 100% gluten-free facility.


Mezzo Italiano is ready to cater your private events, wedding, or family dinner.  Let us do the cooking, we won’t tell anyone it wasn’t you.

Hospitality & Hotels

Servicing your daily hotel needs for quality baked goods.  Our wholesale menu is expanding, your guests deserve the very best.

Work with us

Some opportunities are available for the right person.  Our kitchen is a great place to learn about cooking from scratch.  Prep cooks work without chef in executing our seasonal menus.

We work with local farmers to create our seasonal menu of gourmet take-out food. Ready to take home to heat and eat later or we are happy to heat it up if you are dining here.  Of course, we always have freshly-baked goods and excellent Peet’s Coffee!
