Pasta Moon is an institution. It's where locals go for a special occasion. They've recently expanded, so it's easier to get reservations.

For four months, in France yet, I dreamed about Pasta Moon's lasagna. My memories were validated. Also Sonya Jason playing sax elevated the evening to superb.

This was a good choice that we made spontaneously while visiting Half Moon Bay. We'd go back to try other dishes. : )

We eat here each trip and it's clearly the best in HMB in our opinion. Service is friendly. Lasagna was better than ever.

We had a great meal at Pasta Moon. My son loved his thing crust Margherita pizza, crispy and tasty. We enjoyed sharing a Caesar Salad, a perfect risotto with crab, scallops, and marscapone, and an ahi tuna angel hair pasta. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and the atmosphere romantic and relaxing with a pianist at the grand piano. My... More

The service at Pasta Moon is really hard to beat -especially after a long day of travel and meetings. They definitely are thoughtful about the menu and use of fresh ingredients, resulting in tasty dishes.

Welcome at Pasta Moon. We didn’t expect such nice dishes in a pasta restaurant. A surprisingly good beet coponata as a starter and such good tagliatelle with perfectly roasted scallops as entree. Great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Pasta Moon. Our biggest problem was narrowing down our choices because everything sounded wonderful. The four of us shared a pizza for an appetizer and it was delicious with homemade sausage, prosciutto and fontina with paper thin crispy crust. We all tried a different entrée and agreed they were great. The only problem with... More
