The choice of second courses was rather limited - steak and scallops and eggplant. The pasta sauces were also limited to meat and shellfish. Overall a good meal but would have preferred more choices.

Wonderful food, attentive service, and charming atmosphere make Pasta Moon a must when dining in Half Moon Bay. truth be told, I could have dined there again on our second night, but my husband insisted we try something else new. But rest assured, we WILL be back!

We stopped by here for lunch one Saturday afternoon while wandering around Half Moon Bay. We started with a pizza as an appetizer. They are thin sliced and about dinner plate sized so it worked well before the entrees. My friend had a pasta with a spicy sausage, and I had the lasagna (small size). Both were delicious and just...

This is a little gem in down town Half Moon Bay. The pasta is freshly made daily and the pizza is definitely best in this area. It may be a bit pricy but the food and services are always good.

It was crowded but they seated us almost immediately in the bar area table. The bartender had great suggestions for dinner and dessert was fantastic.

Ate here at recommendation of some locals. Right in the old town business district. It was excellent from service to serving sizes. Little pricey but ingredients were excellent! I love the salads which were especially fresh and tasty. Arugula with orange was fabulous, large and light. I ordered swordfish pasta dish and I shouldn't have. Waitress tried to steer me... More

Went here with family. I actually enjoyed the wine list being all Italian focused. Salad with citrus was great. Lasagne was top notch, one of the best I have had. Pizza was pretty over cooked. Desserts were marginal. Service was on top of things and very attentive. I would try it again.

Used trip advisor to find this place after a trip to the beach. Wonderful food and service. Pleasant wine selection. The waiter was one of the best I've had...knowledgeable, charming, attentive (but not too much). The pasta was delicious... Highly recommend. We felt well cared for the minute we walked in.
