I loved this restaurant. I had the pasta with seafood and the sauce was light and perfect. My son and daughter had a great meal as well. My husband thought his saffron seafood was bland, but the rest of us were happy with our choices.

Surprised to find the restaurant packed on a Monday evening, the bar was also humming. I had pasta and brochette, my friend was a regular with his wife and he ordered the calamari and it looked scrumptious, next time my pick.

food is tossed in the microwave when you order. Acceptable, not great. Dogs are welcome on the patio. This is a big plus.

The food was good. The veal was very tender. The service was good -- not great. But something was missing -- there wasn't no soul to the food. It just seemed like everyone was going through the motions, including, sadly, the folks in the kitchen....More

In the summer of 1993, Mezza Luna Restaurant was opened by friends who shared the love of Italian food. Born and raised in Italy, their mission was to bring traditional food to the table, using only the freshest ingredients they could find. Celebrating twenty-five years on the coast, Mezza Luna continues to maintain consistency using only the best quality of meat, fish, produce, pizza and pasta. Multiple award winner of “Best Italian Restaurant” and “Best Overall Restaurant” by the Reader’s Choice Awards. The restaurant is located in the historic Princeton Landing Building (circa 1908), nestled in the scenic harbor town of Princeton by the Sea (20 miles south of San Francisco on scenic Highway 1). We offer a full bar, giant oversized fireplace and customized banquet menus for small and large gatherings and special events.
