The only restaurant with real food that doesn't try to be something that it isn't. Like every other 'fancy' restaurant in Princeton. And it's BYOB!
We went for a meal on a Saturday night and had a wonderful time. Our food was delivered very promptly by the wonderful wait staff and we could not have been more pleased. For starters, our fancy crabcake was out of this world! My very generous veal, sausage and mushroom dish was flat-out fabulous as was my wife's pork. For dessert we had first-rate tiramisu and very good coffee. The owner hovered around making sure everything was perfect and made us feel very comfortable and right at home. His warm, inviting presence created a very friendly atmosphere. All I can say is by all means try La Mezzaluna yourself and you'll see what I mean. But make sure to make a reservation as this restaurant draws lots of very loyal customers. Enjoy!
Would not suggest trying on a holiday. We were rushed through a 3 course meal in 45 mins with not even an offer of coffee. The eggplant was the star of the meal although it was too big and too much cheese for an appetizer portion. The flounder was tender but drowned in a tasteless sauce. Dessert was good but not remarkable. This was our second try here. We’ve heard raves from others and decided to give it a second try after a less-than memorable first dining experience. We won’t be back. Too many other better restaurants in the area.
Outstanding meal and very good service. The owner is delightful.
Great food, with pretty presentation. Nice, attentive staff and good service. Like many restaurants nowadays, it seems that they think noisy is a plus. I disagree. At certain tables the lights were too bright.
Always awesome food and great service. Their calamari is the best.
Staff and owner are great. All food every time is great. 6 years going there and never an issue
Food was delicious and service was excellent. In addition to the BYOB option, they also have a small, limited wine list that includes half bottles. This was a great option for us as we left our wine in the car!
Very good service. Extremely accommodating for our large group. Food was a bit disappointing. Pork Osso Bucco was not very favorable and tasted a bit stale. My wife's fish was too "fishy". No one raved about their dishes but no major complaints either.
The food was amazing. My sister and I met for lunch on a Sunday and would recommend to anyone who enjoys authentic Italian cuisine. There wasn't a lot of people in when we arrived around noon. However we could easily hear the conversations from other tables. I imagine when the restaurant is full it could be quite noisy. The quality of the food and service was impeccable. We will definitely return!
