As the name suggests, Pasta Moon's menu includes several dishes built around fresh pasta. Owner Kim can often be found in the kitchen, experimenting with a new sauce or presentation. The entire staff participates in monthly wine tasting, learning how to pair selections from the extensive Italian wine list with each the dishes on the menu. Guests will find the... More

Had reservations for four at 6:45 PM, 7/11/16 for Her Ladyship's birthday. We were promptly seated, waters delivered, menus, drinks delivered quickly, which is a biggie for me. I like to have my cocktail order, while looking over the menu, not with my entree. Bread was delivered, which I personally, was not a big fan of (not much flavor), but... More

Everything about Pasta Moon is perfect. The atmosphere, the wait staff, the interesting cocktails, the different food courses. I had a lace asparagus appetizer that was just sublime. Others in our party also enjoyed their meal. The portions are just right. The combination of spices and sauces is perfect. The desserts are especially fancy and delicious. Perfect for a general...

They have enlarged the restaurant. We have been going there for several years when we go to Half Moon Bay. The food has been consistently good. The service is good. The value for what is served is very good.

We ate dinner at Pasta Moon in HMB and had an excellent to outstanding dinner. We had our sons with us, one of which is gluten-free. While he chose the SF Pizza, the rest of us focused on the pasta. My wife had the Tagliatelli Bolognese which she thoroughly enjoyed and I had the pasta of the day which was... More

Homemade, hearty and really tasty. What else could you ask for Lasagna, especially near the Pacific Ocean.

The restaurant is quite large and we got a table without reservation. The service was friendly from start to finish. The food was excellent. We had homemade pasta (spaghetti putanesca and tagliatelle Bolognese) and grilled salmon. Delicious. The wine list comes on an iPad and holds positions you would not expect here like a Messorio 2004 from Le Macchiole for... More

We did not enjoy this restaurant. We ate there on a Monday night when many of the other restaurants were closed. Our server was very slow. She spent time talking with other guests and other staff. The dressing on the salad was very strong and we did not care for it. We ordered the ravioli and it seemed greasy on... More

We had dinner here one evening in June whilst staying in Half Moon Bay, the service is excellent as are the menu choices. We both had pasta (the lasagne is large!) and desserts, a good night.

Amazing service. Amazing drinks- the lavender lemon drop martini in to die for. And amazing food. The puttanesca and the lasagna were spot on. We loved the entire night, and we walked in one minute before closing on July 3rd! We were treated like royalty and had an amazing dinner. This place is well worth your time!!!!
