The restaurant has taken over the whole building (there used to be stores and a bookstore adjacent). Now, that side is a full bar. We had the flash-fried brussel sprouts lightly salted. VERY good! Then we had a caesar salad, olives (too salty) appetizer, and the seared Ahi Tuna linguini. The tuna was a little seared a little too much... More

Pasta Moon is one of those restaurants where you know you are going to get a great meal the instant that you sit down. The staf was very helpful and friendly. The mussels were fabulous

The service, ambiance, and food were all delightful. The pasta here is so flavorful--it has that real "homemade" taste that is rare these days. Please try they flash fried Brussels sprouts...they are divine. The owners mill around and chat with the guests--friendly, not pushy or intrusive. A great meal.

Freshly made pasta. Delicious sauces. Crazy good bread made in their own bakery- served in the Mediterranean style with olive oil and a bit of balsamic in a saucer. Friendly servers. Pricey - but worth it.

Pasta Moon is a Half Moon Bay landmark. We began eating there in the 1990's when we lived in the area. We moved away but still make it a point to stop in when we visit our old hometown. This place is fabulous. We had a terrific dinner there this week. Everything was lovely. My pasta with seared tuna, anchovies,... More

Very good food...can get a bit loud in the dining room. However, as I said my first restaurant loves in HMB!

We had an enjoyable lunch at this charming restaurant. Both the cuisine and service were very good and unhurried. However, we visited during the off season, and understand the whole community is packed during the summer.
