Had a party of 20 for lunch today. From the first phone calls and email communications, we were feeling confident that we picked a great place. Everyone was so responsive and helpful and accommodating. When we arrived the tables were set beautifully, with all of the red wine we dropped off earlier on display across the tables and our white... More

Somebody in our group of 6 was craving Italian and we ended up parking on this street. We decide to try this since it was close and seemed nice, turned out to be a great choice. We had the rice balls and calamari as an appetizer and they were just OK. Main dishes were excellent though and everybody enjoyed them.... More

It has changed hands, but the specials are always just that. Fresh and interesting salads and Italian favourites, great pastas and yummy chops. I always leave satisfied

My friend and I (two old ladies visiting the university art museum) stumbled upon this place on Sunday at lunchtime. We loved everything about it. Portion sizes were perfect for us. (I had a wonderful linguini with smoked salmon and vegetables: friend had a salad.. The bread was exceptional.

Went with party of 4. Waiters, service ok but not trully welcoming. Interior mediocre, non waw factor, eg cheap diner style. Food average & overpriced. Had risotto with fish (catch of day). Risotto was cooked nicely but under seasoned and lacking smoothness (lacking butter or olive oil) fish overcooked, eg dry. Starters, calamari nicely done, excellent tomato sauce. Grilled black...

This was my second time at Mezzaluna's restaurant and again it was great! As an Italian in the US, always looking forward real italian food, this place had surprised me since first. If you want to eat here, make a reservation because it's always full. The only two things to say are the people who works here are nice, organized... More

This cool little restaurant would be easy to miss on busy Witherspoon Street, but by all means give it a try. It's a BYOB (liquor store next door in case you forgot) and the decor is modern minimalist, which I like. The service is expert and friendly (thank you, Emily!) and the food is delicious. The portions are not diner... More

We live in Princeton but hadn't been to Mezzaluna for too long so decided to go to celebrate our anniversary - and so glad we did. It's BYOB which we did - for visitors, there is a liquor store next door and others not too far away. We started with wonderful salads - the greens seemingly just picked - crisp... More

We had an early dinner (6:30) on a Sunday night. We eat in a lot of Princeton and Philadelphia restaurants and in our opinion this is one of the best and most underrated. The server was warm and charming. We had the organic salad, a special eggplant appetizer, gnocchi in pesto sauce with sundried tomatoes and sausage, and the hazelnut... More

I had always passed this little place but a few diners were outside who just ate hear and said it was great. Decided to try and was very pleased. Staff was very friendly and service was also very good. Salad and our pasta entrees were exceptional. Will definitely go back.
