We went to this Resaurant last week with my Aussie friends who relocated in Princeton last year. We all agreed this restaurant underrated. Very delicious and great service...

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 with monkfish. The last of these was mine - the risotto was... 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.

The quality of the food is good and very tasty. The service was excellent. We enjoyed a dinner with my extended family, everyone was happy. It is a little restaurant with good quality well seasoned dishes.

While my husband and I come here with friends throughout the year, this is his favorite place to come to celebrate his birthday. The arugula salad with smoked salmon in a lemon vinaigrette is delicious and so fresh. The veal with sausage and portobella mushrooms in marsala wine sauce is heavenly and cooked to perfection - tender veal and mushrooms... More

Met up with a set of friends over a leisurely lunch, we carried our own bottles of wine (they allow you). In addition to the regular menu, they have a Chef's special of the entrée and the main course. Food was fresh and very authentic, the place though small had something cozy about it. Would recommend a visit, I had... More
