Traditional Italian food, however nothing really stood out with regards to the restaurant and the service was not great.

I'm not saying you have to order the Lava Cake for dessert, I'm just saying that when you cut into it, the liquid chocolate actually flows out like hot lava.

The reviews of this place are very mixed, but frankly it was one of the worst Italian experiences I have had; iffy service and poor food. Ordered Antipasti - supposed to be grilled vegetables - what arrived was tinned mushrooms, tinned red peppers, a bruschetta...More

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.
