We were in HMB for a golf outing with friends and this restaurant was recommended. Yummy…. Dinner was a great ending to a great day of golf and spectacular weather. We all enjoyed the boston clam chowder, with fresh, plump clams. We had the (delicious) stuffed pork chop with peaches and grilled brussels sprouts over mashed potatoes, the (wonderful) taglietelle... More

Great ambience and very cool space. Had the butternut squash salad - absolutely delicious, very fresh. Big chunks of yummy butternut. Had the salmon special, v'good, served with dungeness crab. Dessert - do NOT MISS the cheesecake, it's heavenly. service was great. Highly recommend. Good wine list and cocktails too.

We heard about it from people and were intrigued by being #1 restaurant on TA in HMB and finally managed to go for dinner. Well - we left with pretty mixed feeling, the décor and atmosphere is quite nice, the waiter couldn't be more Italian even if he tried (he couldn't try - he was, in fact, Italian) but the... More

We booked their back room and really enjoyed the private space to hang out with a bunch of noisy kids at a large family get together without worries. The pasta and seafood were flawless as always... The room would work for 20 - 25 people with a long table plus a separate kids table if you so desire...

The pasta here is the best I have ever had. It was so wonderful. I would love to eat here again. They make their own pasta fresh and use fresh local ingredients. I had the pappardelle pasta with a light tomato and cream sauce. It was amazing. My husband had the lasagne which was also amazing.

A surprisingly outstanding dinner -- surprising in that we didn't know what to expect (apart from the TA community's reviews), and the interior and décor suggest more of a trendy, chichi, of-the-moment place where food plays second fiddle to vibe. Not so -- the food simply knocked our socks off. We went with shared entrees and appetizers, and two specials... More

It was our first and last time at Pasta Moon, a place we had had on our list since we moved to the area over a year ago. Maybe it was just the night or the table or the server (though the food was decidedly underwhelming) but it is rare for me to not like a meal and this one... More

Wow, we stumbled in here on the recommendation of a cashier in the cheese store, who recommended the lasagna. Mamma mia! Fantastico!! Light, tender pasta, homemade, and one portion definitely big enough for 2 people. Be sure to meander thru this place, going back to the restroom - the views along the way are fabulous: meat cutting, pasta and bread... More

Stopped here after a wonderful day in the area. Did not have a reservation, but they easily accommodated our family of four. Very friendly staff and good cocktails. Appitezers were fresh and delicious. All dishes were fabulous with healthy portions. My wife and daughter split the chicken dinner and were very satisfied. My other daughter had the small potion lasagne... More
