Excellent food .... Great BYOB!!!We had a fabulous time! the chef even came out to check to see how folks were enjoying their food!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience, even with kids!I never take my kids to a restaurant - they are little monkeys - but we had to, for Mother's Day with my MIL. The service was WONDERFUL - attentive, accommodating, and they did not frown at my little monkeys. They have nice private booths where I was able to keep the monkeys hidden for the most part. The caprisi salad was terrific, and the mozzarella sticks were definitely a step up from the usual fare. The halibut was not so good, with some stuffed crab meat on top - seemed maybe like it was frozen together as a prepared meal - blech. They de-shelled my MIL's lobster meal at her request, and she and the rest of my family really enjoyed their dishes. This was a great experience overall and we will be back. I would highly recommend it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a terrific restaurantWe have been back and back to this little restaurant because our daughter is a student at Princeton. We love it because the food is consistently wonderful and the wait staff is so nice and attentive. It is a totally delightful experience all around and we even love that they happily open and pour wine that you bring in or that you buy at the wine shop next door. We will always make it a part of our trips to Princeton.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceVery friendly and professional service. We all had pasta for lunch: it was good but "italian size servings" which for the price was a little disappointing. Otherwise it was well done. The creme brulée was excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining at La MezzalunaI would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends. The pasta entres we had were excellent, great flavor and not too large of portions. We also had the cream of broccoli soup which was also excellent. The restaurant was very comfortable, we sat in a booth. The servers were very attentive.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Food & ExperienceWe were a party of 6 that mostly came 45+ minutes late & the owner said it was no problem whatsoever, we will still take excellent care of you, etc, etc. The experience went well beyond that & the food, service & presentation were 5 star. Thank you to the chef/owner & entire waitstaff at Mezzaluna. You are exactly why I eat out.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was absolutely divine!!Food was absolutely divine!! The staff was very polite and accomodating.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNever been there but I'd go backI met a friend there for a mid-afternoon lunch. Our waiter was really very nice and took good care of us. We were there for a couple of hours catching up and they never rushed us out of there. The food was good. I had a salad and seafood risotto and both were tasty. I would go there again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA must!Every time we dine at La Mezzaluna the food and service is outstanding. Great location and great ambiance!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Food - BYOBThis is a very nice find There is no question the food is VERY good. The environment is casual (booths on one side and tables on the other side) of a long room. Service is very attentive but not to the point of being intrusive. Really enjoyed our lunch. $15-$16 pasta entree's with seafood, yet there were sandwiches for $10. It's BYOB. Would we come back, indeed we will! You probably would walk past this restaurant a few times without noticing it, maybe you already have, as it is simply an orange awning on what appears to be a glass storefront. Open the door and treat yourself to a great meal with your favorite wine you bring in with you and outstanding service, no matter how busy it is at the time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice meal for a romanticA very nice meal for a romantic evening. The fruit flambe was outstanding!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCozy Neighborhood GemOur first time at this charming byob in Princeton on Witherspoon St. Cozy tables, attentive service - and great food! We started with the calamari - drizzle of balsamic glaze over - nice touch - salad of crisp duck was good - but duck not as crispy as I would like - we had two risottos from the menu - both delicious and the rack of lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Dessert was a fruit flambe served table side - nice presentation - over delicious gelato - perhaps from the Bent Spoon?
Another plus - they take reservations and a liquor store is next door -
We will be back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI requested a window tableI requested a window table and arrived 15 minutes late due to traffic -- they were incredibly accommodating and did not rush us at all -- I would definitely return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem in PrincetonJust terrrific. From great food to attention dealt by the chef/owner himself. Went there for pre-theater but could have spent the evening. I had the wild boar paperdelle, recommended personally by the chef. Outstanding. Slalds, superb. Desert, so good it was evil. Don't miss it. Only drawv=back is the lively noise, if that bothers you. But I could hear who I needed to hear and the rest became more of a part of the energetic ambiance. If there are just two of you, ask for the corner table in the front of the main dining room.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with large portions.Great food with large portions. Very good service. It is a little cramped and noisy so would not recommend for a dinner date or intimate conversations.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've come to La MezzalunaWe've come to La Mezzaluna for 4 or 5 work events. It's BYOB, so is easily reimbursable with our work dinner policy. Time after time, we've been blown away by the food and great service. This last time we went was a little busier than normal, but even with a lack of a second waiter the great staff still wow-ed us again!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been there three timesHave been there three times over past few years. First time was a very good experience. Second time - after they added, I believe, a row of tables in the middle of the restaurant - was not as enjoyable because it was noisy and hectic. This time we went on a Sunday evening and it was not at all crowded, so we were able to relax and enjoy the food. One of us had seafood risotto which, although not a huge portion, had plenty of fish in it and was very good. The other member of our party had one of the specials that evening, a pork chop dish, which was excellent. Our server was quite helpful.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
