Mezzogiorno is owned and operated by the Ansuini brothers, Lorenzo and Nicola.   After taking over the reigns from their father, Vittorio, back in 2004, the brothers decided in 2015 to move the restaurant from its home of 28 years in SoHo and relocate to the Upper West Side.  Although the neighborhood has changed, the commitment to providing highest quality Italian fare made from the freshest ingredients remains the same as it was back in 1987 when Mezzogiorno first opened.
