He meant “Mezzaluna” of course. That got me thinking about this restaurant’s name, which turns out to be rather clever – and funny (in my mind anyway-more on that later).
Here’s where things got interesting. Wanting to be sure I had Mezzaluna’s complete and correct name, I did a little research. The big metal sign on the overhang simply reads, “Mezzaluna“. If you do a “Mezzaluna Hendersonville” Google search or look at this restaurant’s incorporation information, you’ll get “Mezzaluna Pizza Company“. And not too long ago a sign that reads, “Mezzaluna – Brick Oven (separated by a crescent moon) Tap House“appeared on their front window.

put it on there because I watched them ladle it. It must have been absorbed into the crust and melted cheese. My take on the pizza? Good but not spectacular.
