My favorite Italian Restaurant in Half Moon Bay, California

We love Pasta Moon! It is our favorite local restaurant. The pasta is homemade and is the best fresh pasta I have ever eaten. The lasagna is amazing, you can't go wrong ordering it. For lunch the diver scallop salad is amazing. Seared scallops on a bed of arugula with mango and avocado fanned... read more

Pasta Moon has excellent service, interesting menu options updated nightly, friendly,casual ambiance. We had the smoked linguini w/ scallops, and one of the prawn dishes. Fish cooked perfectly, veggies colorful and nicely plated. We both thought the pastas were a little oily.

Sad that I waited so long that my Colorado brain can't recall the specifics of our soup to nuts experience here. Bottom line, make a reservation and go. Seriously. We travel a lot and consequently eat out a fair amount, this was a great experience. The restaurant is handsome, our waiter was great, quite the professional. The foods were all... More

Drove over to Half Moon Bay after a couple of days working in the valley. Parked and walked the length of the Main Street and saw many interesting restaurants. This one seemed more comfortable and inviting for some reason. Sat at the bar and ordered. Bartender was very knowledgeable about the good and drinks. My seafood pasta dish was done... More

We were here on a busy Friday night. It's best to make reservations which can be done in advance via email, but be sure to save your confirmation. The staff had confused many of the reservations with not enough seating as requested. The food is good...we had the pizza which can be ordered only in small or medium size for... More

Hands down best restaurant in Half Moon Bay - perhaps San Mateo county. Service and food are so consistently amazing with great selection and a full bar to boot! This is NEVER a disappointment and never a wrong choice. Worth the splurge.

Make reservations...or you may miss out on truly outstanding Italian food! The thin crust pizza reminded me of pizza I ate in Verona!! It was divine and I had leftovers too! The rest of the group all had various pasta dishes or the eggplant parmigiana...each was great! The tiramisu was incredible and large enough to share! Service was friendly and... More

Myself, brother and parents visited 3 times whilst staying in Half Moon Bay for only 4 nights. Each time the food was consistently excellent and cooked to perfection. Each time we visited, we were welcomed by friendly and cheery staff who know the menu well and could make excellent recommendations! The specials looked and sounded amazing on all three visits....
