Second time visiting Pasta Moon. I will always return when in area. Special of the day to die for -- smoked linguine with scallops and fresh cherry tomatoes in a delicious light sauce. Salad = arugula w/ peaches and carmelized hazelnuts. Fabulous wine menu. Waiter had perfect recommendation for the meal. I'd give it 10 stars if possible!

What a nice break from CA1. Stopped in for a quick bite to eat on a Thursday night without reservations. Owner greeted us at the door & seated us. The Rosemary bread & olive oil provided were delicious! I had 2 specials, an arugula peach salad w/ a (white wine?) balsamic dressing. Salad was amazing!! Then a smokey pasta/scallop dish.... More

I was speaking to a friend who raved about Pasta Moon. He said he and his wife visited this restaurant every time they traveled through half moon bay. We had to, of course, try it out. We love great restaurants and go out of our way for that "yum" first reaction from the first bite. My wife had the seared... More

Terrific experience. Excellent cuisine, excellent service. The home made pastas and everything we chose was first class. A nice spot in scenic Half Moon Bay. If you are in the area try to go.

It has been 4 years since our last time at Pasta Moon and our only regret is that we've not found a way back there sooner than we did. The entire ambiance is First Rate from the warm greeting when we arrived, to the way we were seated and then treated by our waitress and her assistants. The lasagna is... More

Pasta Moon is quite an experience. Very good but a little pricy. You pay for the quality of food as well as the ambiance. All in all it was very good.

Atmosphere is comfortable, service a little slow (holiday weekend), but the food blew us away. We had the spinach pizza (they have a much better name for it) and the butternut squash ravioli. Surprisingly delicious. We shared the butterscotch pudding for dessert - best ever. The people sitting next to us had the Meyer lemon parfait. I would order it... More

My family and I visited here three times on our recent visit to the area. The food was always excellent and the menu offered options that satisfied all of our different, and in some cases difficult tastes! The staff were friendly and efficient. It thoroughly deserves its high rating.

Pasta Moon has excellent service, interesting menu options updated nightly, friendly,casual ambiance. We had the smoked linguini w/ scallops, and one of the prawn dishes. Fish cooked perfectly, veggies colorful and nicely plated. We both thought the pastas were a little oily.
