Hasn't Disappointed...

We've come together and brought friends. We've always been served and fed well! Prices are fair for the well prepared, generously portioned authentic and fresh Italian food. We are glad to have this restaurant in our local community.

This is a really wonderful place to experience truly spectacular Italian food. The staff and servers are just first rate, so very explanatory, and very efficient. Some of the best Italian fare we've ever had.

La Mezzaluna is one of the best restaurants I've been within the three state area. The food is amazing and the service outstanding. It is located a few steps away from Princeton University and Palmer Square. Their menu is not big but has plenty of delicacies. Besides this, they offer three or four specials for dinner every day. They do... More

We found this place by accident before visiting the Princeton Art Museum. A happy find - the service, food and atmosphere were all excellent. We went for lunch, I had the caprice sandwich with salad, which was very good. My companion had the shrimp and scallop luncheon, which he also enjoyed. Our server was welcoming and knowledge about the menu... More

This is an hidden gem in Princeton. We have been to this restaurant several times and every experience has been excellent. The food is great and the service is even better. We have always gone early in the evening when the restaurant is sparsely filled. The salads are large, fresh and flavorful. They have no liquor license but Public is... More

Have gone here a good number of times over the years. Recently we went there and had a fish dish which was so good we decided to go back the next week and order the same thing and it was like we were in another restaurant, completely different quality. We have noticed this a number of times. So we will... More
