Return visit for my birthday. Wonderful appetizers-the Iacopi bean salad was superb. Great regular and gluten free homemade breads. Regular and gluten free pastas were wonderful. Also enjoyed some of the best gluten free pizza we have tasted. Desserts were so delicious, can't wait to return. Our waiter and busboy were awesome!

Having unsuccessfully tried a walk-in visit the night before, we booked whilst there and returned the following night and well worth it, it was too. A good selection of recognisable dishes and more, the choice was more than adequate. They were well presented by friendly and informative staff and tasted delicious. Add the buzzing atmosphere of a full restaurant and... More

What a gem! This restaurant is fabulous. Home-made everything, including gluten-free pasta and pizza. The service was amazing. Coming from the Ritz-Carlton we felt that we got real value for money :-).

Pasta Moon was the first Coastside restaurant recognized by the Zagat Guide, many moons ago, and is still one of the finest. Not for tourists who want a fast fish-and-chips fry-up, a big basket of bread with beer, or a bulging hamburger. This is very fine Italian food created with love and discriminating taste, served with consideration and care. Talk... More

Very nice restaurant, clean, nice atmosphere, very helpful staff. Food was really nice, and they are more than willing to adjust menu for your diet needs. There homemade pasta is superb.

Loved everything about it, even though I only ate two dishes. Both had sensational scallops. I don't know where they got them but I have never eaten any so big, plump and perfectly cooked! If I lived in CA I'd go back there every week. Waiter suggested a wine that he let me taste, the taste was just so so... More

Pasta Moon is one of my favorite placing to dine on the coast. I believe the best places to dine or not just because they have wonderful food but it's the total experience, here it starts with the management/owner that care for her customers, along with friendly staff, warm atmosphere and then just enjoyable wonderfully made dishes. All the pasta... More
