Quite pricey but good food

Went here for my son's birthday celebration, so we were prepared to pay slightly higher prices than we would normally for Italian food. The menu was interesting and food generally tasty. Between us we had wild boar pappardelle, pork ossobucco with risotto, chicken al tartufo and saffron risotto... read more

"Your reservation has been canceled" The about sums up my experience with this restaurant. I had confirmed a reservation a week ago for 11 people for Saturday @ 2PM. On Friday I called to increase the reservation to 14 people for which they agreed and said it would not be an issue. On Saturday, at 12PM (two hours before the... More

Our party of 6 went to La Mezzaluna for a family dinner on a cold weekend. We had made reservations but had to wait for a bit to get a table. The staff plied us with a nice wine to ease the pain and offered to chill our BYOB white wine in their fridge. After we got our table we... More

Please keep in mind this is the first establishment ever to receive a negative review from me - I always look for the positive. Despicable! Plain and simple! I was being taken out for my birthday. We showed up on time, actually early. There were 4 of us, we had reservations. A walking party of "regulars" came about 10 minutes... More

I has not heard of La Mezzaluna , so when I was Invited to for a recent business dinner, I was intrigued. I was hoping to find a “regular” spot close to home that I could rely on when friends came to town and I needed a dinner venue in a pinch. The restaurant is located on Witherspoon and is... More

My husband, friend (and her husband) celebrated New Year's Eve dinner here. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice. The waiter was friendly and entertaining and we had no issues during the course of our meal. The restaurant is BYOB so that helped lower costs. The crab cake in pesto cream sauce was a great special addition... More

Mezzaluna is a pretty good restaurant but not a place for gourmet dining. The appetizers are very good and ample, main courses vary. The wine list is reasonable. Service varies, can be slow. The owner is trying hard and has found a niche in the Princeton market. Quality seems to be improving.

Today was my second day in Princeton, New Jersey. I needed a little break from the city. I came across a small cute looking restaurant and thought that this would be a place for a nice early dinner. First of all, our waiter was very accommodating and very helpful. This brought me and my family a good vibe about this... More

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague and it was great. The food was super fresh and delicious and service was European (they certainly don't rush you). It's a BYOB.
