We had heard about this place from others and finally tried it for ourselves. We were warmly greeted by the manager (owner?) who told us that they didn't have kid menus but could make anything we liked for the kids (we asked for a cheese pizza for them to share, and they obliged.) Service was prompt and attentive. Bread was... More

I ordered the sale with chicken on it. The salad leaves must have been sitting in the salad dressing for quite some time before being served to me. It was terrible. The service was good and they wanted to push more wine etc but who would want to after a disappointing meal!

I am gluten and dairy intolerant so I had to come up with something creative, even tho they offer gluten free choices. I was tired of chicken and pork! So I had them throw together some of their homemade Sicilian Sausage, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, porcini mushrooms, asparagus, garlic, basil and white balsamic vinaigrette in a fry pan. On... More

With all the great reviews I was expecting something wonderful. I had lemon chicken. I tasted no citrus, it just a bland piece of meat served with mushy squash that tasted charred. I took a taste of my husbands lasagna and had to agree with him that it was quite dry. As for atmosphere, it was loud and very open.... More

I visited Pasta Moon for dinner. Ordered fried asparagus and sea bass as as main course. Starter was good and tasty.?The sea bass was over cooked and tasted funny. Too much lemon and squashed tomato ruined the fish. Couldn't tell whether it was fresh, there was no taste other than lemon. Quality provided did not justify the $60 bill. Just... More

Pasta Moon was recommended by a shopkeeper and what a recommendation! The specials of the day are almost as numerous as the regular items on the menu. A splendid bar and delightful staff.

This is my fave restaurant in HMB! Service always friendly--menu so inviting that it's always difficult to make a choice. But I've never made a bad one! Love the expanded restaurant. It's quieter (at least for lunch!) A fun and yummy experience!

I've been in Italy recently and I must say this place offers authentic Italian food! Everything is absolutely delicious from appetizers to dessert. Of course all accompanied with great Italian wines. Staff is very friendly and help you find the right choice. Reservations are recommended. Also good cocktail list. If you're in the city don't hesitate.

Excellent pasta and fish, but the tables are so close together that you are inundated with other conversations. Worse if you are seated near families with young children. Should be a 5 rating, but it was just too chaotic for an enjoyable dinner.
