A real surprise. I was not expecting this level of cuisine when we decided to try it. The pasta was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Their special was baby back ribs which we thought we would have as we have been eating allot of fish lately. They were amazing and the vegetables that came with it were also delicious. Congratulations... More

This restaurant was recommended and I'm very glad to recommend it too. Lovely service with excellent food for reasonable price. Felt like in Italy when closed eyes while eating my shrimp pizza. I'm comparing this to food in Naples / amalfi coast and some home Italian cooking done by Mama in house. Excellent thin crust with minimum toppings so I... More

We met a couple friends from Silicone Valley and went to the restaurant after a hike along the coast. The whole experience was great - nice atmosphere, good food, good service, maybe a tad bit noisy.

The butternut squash is just wonderful. Clean resturant and friendly staff. We tried four different dishes all of them we would try again. A great find in Half Moon bay.

We stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant driving up Highway 1 to San Francisco. I did a Google search for restaurants serving lunch in Half Moon Bay and Pasta Moon was at the top of the list, so we decided to give it a try. What's really special about this restaurant is that all the pasta is homemade. We... More

My husband and I live two hours south of Half Moon Bay and we did a one night getaway on Saturday to Sunday for my birthday. I made my restaurant selection based on the innkeeper's suggestion from the inn where we booked a room, and I made the dinner reservation on Open Table online. I put a note in that... More

We arrived at a busy time but had reservations. The hostess was having to clean tables as well as seat people. There was a lady walking around checking on everything. I think it was her first week or something. She told us the managers were all out of town and they were busier than they thought they would be. We... More

Stayed at Ritz in Half Moon Bay, but eating at this restaurant was one of the highlights of my trip. I had the eggplant parmesan, it was the best I've ever had.

LOVED everything about Past Moon! Nice decor, friendly staff, great service, and best of all ...YUMMY food! I ordered the pea salad and corn soup, and my husband ordered eggplant parmasean. Everything tasted very fresh. A bit pricey, portions were on the small side, but it was delicious. They have gluten-free pasta and pizza. We will definitely be back.

This is our first time at this restaurant. We felt that it was expensive for what you get. Had the pizza and a salad. Not a fan.. Would not go back.
