Mezza Luna Restaurant

Mezza Luna Restaurant

Mezzaluna was a Mediterranean Southern Italian restaurant that opened in 2000 in a newly-renovated Patterson block. The restaurant was a second location of a restaurant from Broad Ripple, and the Muncie location opened early in the revival of Downtown, alongside Vera Mae’s and White River Landing.

Mezzaluna used local organic produce, like tomatoes from the Ring Family Farm, or locally roasted coffee from Alliance Church, as well as local meat from Aubrey’s natural meats in Elwood. The most popular dish was the “chip,” which was a chipotle gorgonzola sauce over bowtie pasta, and they offered “wine down Wednesdays,” which were a hit.  Mezzaluna was also one of Andy’s favorite all-time restaurants, the tiramisu dessert being especially missed.

While the restaurant faced some turbulence with their liquor license, they recovered to glowing reviews. Mezzaluna closed in 2006. The Muncie location is the current site of Sea Salt & Cinnamon. The Broad Ripple location also closed.
