    Great food even on New Years Eve! And even though the waiter seemed young, he was personable and very good! Too bad I didnt take his name down.

    Second time there. First time great food. This time food was fair for me and poor for the family’s meals unfortunately. Service was ridiculously slow which made us leave instead of having dessert. Waitress was nice but very inexperienced sadly.

    Appetizers were ok, entrees were tasteless. Apparently short staffed. Had to ask more than once for anything. Used platters not cleared from table before next course was served. Won’t be back anytime soon.

    My wife & myself enjoyed a terrific lunch on Saturday, April 02,2022. Dining room was very clean with the food very good. We had several food items which were really good with large portions. Outstanding dining experience. Our server was PEDRO, perhaps the best server I have ever experienced. We will return frequently and will recommend Meza Luna to all. Bob S. Manalapan, N.J.

    This is probably our go-to for dine-in Italian restaurants. The food is very good and the service is too. It's also a BYOB. I recommend it.

    The food was actually very good- old fashioned Italian comfort food. Could eat there any day of the week and get a good meal. The service was choppy. We were waited on by what seemed to be a high school student. No problem with that but she needed lots more training. You could really feel that she didn’t want to be there. Brough dishes just out of the dishwasher ( totally wet) and seemed clueless about putting down a wet glass. Restaurant usually has last minute Saturday night reservations, which isn’t always easy to find.

    Decided to try this place over the many other Italian places in the area ( we have been to a couple) and We were pleasantly surprised by the food. The food portions are generous and the calamari is a must for an app. We will definitely come back.

    Service was terrible - the waiter barely checked on us. Had to ask other servers for silverware, bread, etc. My husbands sandwich was missing cheese and fries - how do you forget fries? Very expensive for such terrible service.

    Mezza Luna has a good menu but the Soprano chicken dish that I ordered was very salty. Instead of ordering pasta on the side, I selected mixed vegetables. Rather than being served on a separate plate, they were included with the main dish which made for a messy presentation. Server removed plates before everyone was finished which shows lack of training on managements part.
