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.

Always a treat to come to Half Moon Bay, and this restaurant has reliably good to very good fare. This time we ate at the bar to watch the World Series Games. Note that they were not blaring but just the screen was on to accommodate Giants fans, which was a sophisticated way to handle baseball fans and people who... More

We booked a table to try the No 1 restaurant in HMB and were not disappointed. We had skirt of beef medium rare (it was), stuffed pork chop and lemon chicken, and all were well cooked and presented. It's a lively, busy restaurant so booking is recommended. Service was not fast, but we'd rather have food cooked well than cooked... More

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

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
