Great Specials!

The staff was very nice. The menu was not too large, the cocktails were very good, the food was served perfectly!! Keep it that way.

Awesome meal and great customer service. We enjoyed our meal here and definitely would return again. The Italian food here is really good and this is probably one of the better restaurant in this area. The ambiance of the restaurant is also very nice.

Had Easter lunch here. This is one of my favorite restaurants that is worth the drive to Half Moon Bay. Have never been disappointed in anything I have tried. The pasta is fabulous! Yesterday I had the pork cheeks which were melt in your mouth. Love their Italian 7 cocktail. Had one of the best baby kale salads here. There... More

I had "Spaghetti Puttanesca" and my husband ordered "Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak", they both so delicious, but the homemade pasta and fresh seafood were to die for...Love it. My husband wanted to go back for it since he missed it the first time, but we had only one more day and wanted to try the Peruvian food on HWY 1,... More

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
