Description: Mezzaluna Restaurant is located in the historic Princeton Landing building (which was built in 1908). The harbor town of Princeton By The Sea is located 20 miles south of San Francisco. In this scenic area of Half Moon Bay, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, you can experience breathtaking coastal views and marvel at the giants waves of Mavericks surf spot. We provide nothing but the highest quality of meat, fish, produce, pasta and local fresh ingredients. Mezzaluna is continually awarded as Best Restaurant on the Coast and Best Customer Service. In 2012, Mezza Luna was awarded "Favorite Italian Restaurant" and in 2013 awarded "Favorite Overall Restaurant" and "Favorite Italian Restaurant" by the coastside community and the readers of the Half Moon Bay Review. In 2014 Mezza Luna was awarded by Open Table the "Dinners Choice Award". But it doesn't take an award to prove the quality and consistency of the great food, service and wine... You must experience it for yourself.

Located in Princeton by the Sea just up from Half Moon Bay, Mezza Luna is a real jewel. The location is great and the food was fabulous. We began with an appetizer of thinly sliced proscuitto wrapped around slices of canteloupe. The salty proscuitto paired nicely with the sweet melon. A real taste treat. I had the lasagna bolognese and... More

A good selection of Italian pasta, meat, fish, salad, dessert, and wine. All our favorites and well prepared, making Mezza Luna one of our favorite restaurants in Half Moon Bay for fine dining. The restaurant's décor is lovely. There are some views of the harbor from some tables. Portions are individually sized, so if you'd like to sample one than... More

We had a very pleasant dinner here while staying at the Ritz-Carlton. We both had fish, I had the swordfish and my wife had halibut. I'm not a big fan of lemon causes but the menu did warn me. At any rate, the fish in both cases was perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. Next time I'll try one... More

My husband and I went to Mezza Luna in the Princeton area of Half Moon Bay today. The food was superb! So fresh and tasty and the service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable for what appeared to be a pricey restaurant when we walked in. My new favorite place when I'm in the area, yes and I will return!

The Tomato Caprese Salad was as classic as you can get, with nice greens, and not just thick tomato layers, but mozzarella as well, and some olives to boot. The ham and mushroom tortellini delivered as well, with not a huge or too small portion, and good flavor throughout. What perplexes me to no end is the constant Italian restaurant... More

Our yacht club makes an annual trip to Half Moon Bay over Labor Day weekend. Because all of the members are coming by boat, the number of reservations fluctuates wildly as the weather forecasts are released. Mezza Luna not only has great food and service, but they are very understanding with my regular calls to either increase or decrease the... More

Every meal we have had at Mezza Luna Restaurant in Half Moon Bay has been excellent, and we have made it through almost the complete menu! We often go on Tuesdays when the have their weekly special.
