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.

Why doesn't this every meal begin with fantastic crusty bread, along with olive oil and balsamic vinegar? Combine that with sparkling water with lime- and the a remarkable fresh linguini topped with crab, finely diced carrots, celery and a touch of fennel, add some freshly grated Parmesan and you have as close to heaven as possible in Half Moon Bay,...

I personally enjoy the pizza & salad with a good glass of wine but all the food is really good. Lunch and dinner both. Great atmosphere. No wonder it is so popular!

I was working in the Bay Area and planned to meet a friend I hadn't seen in 28 years. Half Moon Bay sounded like a lovely community by the sea so I looked on Trip Advisor. It's #1 for good reason. We had salads and pizza to share with nice wines. All good. But, what I really appreciated was the... More

The menu on this evening was for a 5-course meal and optional wine pairing. All 5 courses were excellent. My main course was steak and my wife's was salmon. Bread was served with the meals along with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip. The servers and other supporting staff were very attentive to our every request. Since we didn't order... More

Great lasagna! And great salads. Love the lemon vinaigrette dressing. Nice for a lunch or even a date night. Very nice setting and friendly staff.

maybe we caught them on an off day, but our experience was mediocre, and to top it off it was not family friendly at all, which is fine i understand some restaurants cater to different clientele, just mentioning it for those traveling through with children who are unaware. nothing was bad, but for the price nothing was spectacular either.

Visited Pasta Moon this past Saturday after reading several reviews about restaurants in Half Moon Bay. I was really amazed with the atmosphere as I walked into the restaurant. It was very dimly lit and had a romantic feel. The service was very excellent and everyone was very friendly. About the food, loved the lasagna and Meyer Lemon Parfait. I... More
