We enjoyed a superb dinner at La Mezzaluna, an Italian BYOB, in Princeton. The food was excellent and the service was professional, friendly and attentive. stand out dishes were the pumpkin ravioli, Bronzino and the flaming fruit dessert. And there is a liquor store conveniently located next door, should you need to buy wine!

Service here was friendly, but the food is forgettable. Calamari neither crispy nor tender, but the marinara sauces were tasty. Artichoke cake was blah. Will not be returning.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch after exploring Princeton. The service was outstanding. We started with eggplant Rollatini and Caesar salad. Both of our entrees were superb, veal and a chicken special. Definitely will return!

Went once before and thought it was very good, went back and food did not taste fresh at all. Definitely recommend going for lunch rather than dinner. From what I could tell, menu was the same as are the portions but the price is dramatically cheaper.

Not great food, but good. Great service, would have been awesome if offered full bar. Very small, reservations suggested.

Six of us had reservations here on a Friday night prior to a musical event at the Princeton Chapel. The restaurant was full, but the service was prompt, friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

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
