One of the best meals we had on our 2 week trip in California. The service was exceptional. Our son was too big for the kids menu and wanted to order from the main menu and they kindly gave him a half portion of what he wanted and a half salad of his choice. We loved it.

Happened upon this restaurant in Half Moon Bay last night. Amazing food and service for both courses. House made linguini was excellent as were the starters. Our server Dana gave great advice on wine and food choices from the menu. Would definitely recommend this to others.

This is by far one of the best meals we had in the Bay Area. The homemade pastas are to die for. Reminded me of my family's cooking when I was young. Service was very good, and prices were extremely low for quality and service. The white wine was excellent. If you appreciate good Italian food, this is the place.

Right on the Main Street, next to the river, Pasta Moon is a very pleasant, surprisingly large, Italian Restaurant with many gourmet choices, good service, great Caesar salad, and a nice wine list

A nice, upscale Italian on Main Street in Half Moon Bay. Good Italian, nice people. The live piano music was an unexpected plus.

We are staying at the nearby Ritz Carlton and the concierge recommended Pasta Moon for lunch with our kids. It is located on the quaint Main Street of Half Moon Bay and offers delicious authentic Italian food. Our meals came out quickly and were piping hot. It was all delicious. My only suggestion would be to offer smaller size pizzas... More

While located on the main street, this location is next to an area with lots of trees and flowers so the view can be amazing. We sat in the back and had a beautiful view with a nice breeze.

The charm and the service is excellent. The quality of the food was great. There is room for improvement and they really need to get their light fixed and stable. As eating every once in a while the lights would noticeably go dim. Could this be because of hitting the microwave button.

Stopped in here for lunch while exploring Half Moon Bay. Menu is a bit limited but had some good choices for all types of Italian cuisine. Good fresh patas. I had the Parpardelle with Proscuitto which was excellent and my kids had some pizzas. Good service but a bit slow to start. Good place for lunch.

Thank Mr. T
