In my experience BYOB restaurants always seem to have a fun happy buzz which emanates across the room - almost makes you feel like you're at a party where everyone is having a great time - that is the atmosphere I'm describing here - and no ridiculous cork fee either! The food was fantastically flavorful - I had a wild... More

Good idea to make a reservation at least a few days in advance. We went on a Saturday night, late dinner for two and we still had a short wait. BYOB and the food is awesome! I had a special, salmon stuffed with shrimp on a bad of asparagus with a rich mustard sauce. They also offer gluten free pasta!... More

Stopped in for dinner in August on a Friday night, assumed we need a reservation, walked in and the place was empty. Not sure why, the food was great. Waitress seemed a little ill prepared, maybe her first night? We brought a bottle of wine, and started with a ceaser salad and mixed green salad, the mixed green was excellent!... More

Fruit flambé made right at your table! Excellent cappuccino! Every dish looked beautiful & tasted amazing! Tiramisu is phenomenal! Wine selection is very nice. Staff is very friendly & professional. Fine dining experience that is affordable.

Decent BYOB in Princeton, average prices and service, but very loud when crowded. Menu is good, with nightly specials, but service could be improved and any sound dampening material on the walls or ceiling would vastly improve this restaurant.

We now have added lunch at Mezza Luna to one of our favorite Princeton dining experiences. The staff continue to be always pleasant and knowledgeable, and, after two lunches, knew us. Their lunch appetizer specials - especially the eggplant, prosciutto, creamy pesto sauce - are particularly good. We pick up a bottle of wine next door, have a lovely lunch,... More

My family treated me to a tasty birthday meal here, a friendly and comfortable Italian restaurant which uncorks wine at no charge and offers Italian background music. I had the butternut squash ravioli appetizer and chicken Marsala. I enjoyed both, but the chicken swam in a bit too much cream. My companions had the veal dish as well as salads.... More

La Mezzaluna has good Italian food including freshmade pasta. No liquor license, but a pricy liquor store with a good selection next door. We came on Saturday night of Princeton Reunions weekend. There were 3 10-person birthday celebrations during our dinner. It was very noisy!

I walked in La Mezzaluna, a small quaint and cozy Restaurant in downtown Princeton NJ, I had a wonderful waiter. I ask a few questions about Fish Entree's, Little did I know, that he would bring the Owner/Chef out. He treated me very well and was very delighted on serving me a Peruvian specialty fish entrée that was absolutely award... More
