The food tasted great, but the bad or lack of service left a bad taste in my mouth. We had to ask for water, bread, butter, and our check multiple times!

I'm looking for a quiet restaurant in the Princeton area to celebrate my son's graduation from TCNJ. My father uses a hearing aid, but still struggles to hear table conversation, especially in noisy restaurants. Is La Mezzaluna typically a more quiet restaurant?
