This was the most abysmal no taste no real quality Italian meal I've had. There was a wedding taking up the bar and maybe this is part of the reason, but no excuse. The ratings make me question who writes them, or is sub standard...More

On a recent trip to Half Mood Bay, we were amazed at the variety of Italian fare in the area. Mezza Luna was a hit with us due to the housemate pasta and the wood-fired oven pizza. The 4 star rating here is for the...More

I have never been disappointed here. (Annoyed once, due to a table of very loud drunks, but that was no fault of the restaurant.) Their Salmon Ravioli is always good with a caprese salad and don't miss the deserts! (My favorite a fragola desert item...More

Fantastic restaurant! The fried calamari are delicious and better priced than other restaurants in the area with larger portions. The fish is extremely fresh! They have a fish selection for two on the menu that is outstanding. The ambience is superb - white linen tablecloths....More

Our friends who live in El Grananda recommended Mezz Luna to us. That is all I needed for verification. Great food.

We've been going to Mezza Luna for years. It's our family favorite. Food is consistently good. It's our go-to for dinner or celebrations.

Mezzaluna Restaurant is located in the historic Princeton Landing building (which was built in 1908). The harbor town of Princeton By The Sea is located 20 miles south of San Francisco. In this scenic area of Half Moon Bay, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, you can experience breathtaking coastal views and marvel at the giants waves of Mavericks surf spot. We provide nothing but the highest quality of meat, fish, produce, pasta and local fresh ingredients. Mezzaluna is continually awarded as Best Restaurant on the Coast and Best Customer Service. In 2012, Mezza Luna was awarded "Favorite Italian Restaurant" and in 2013 awarded "Favorite Overall Restaurant" and "Favorite Italian Restaurant" by the coastside community and the readers of the Half Moon Bay Review. In 2014 Mezza Luna was awarded by Open Table the "Dinners Choice Award". But it doesn't take an award to prove the quality and consistency of the great food, service and wine... You must experience it for yourself.
