This place puzzles me. Whenever we go, there's always 6-10 of us, we always have a reservation, and it always feels like they are understaffed. The wine list is noteworthy. The drinks are very well made but very slow to appear. (This is better than the other way around, but still...) The food is always superb. Superb, I say! Consistently.... More

We popped into Pasta Moon on a lark for dinner to avoid Pumpkin Festival traffic. What a pleasant surprise. Food was tasty and service fast. Very creative menu.

Pasta Moon has been around, I've been told, for several decades, but it seems like they are the new kid on the block and are trying to impress everyone. The food is excellent, with good beer and wines by the glass selections. The hostess is sharp enough to seat couples away from the fun banter at the bar to a... More

Pablo the waiter was wonderful and gave good menu advice. The lasagna is definitely world class. It was sunny and full of friendly people for lunch on a Friday afternoon.

Great place that was highly recommended by locals... Nice atmosphere and the staff was great... Late afternoon dinner after flying in that morning... We sat at the bar and enjoyed brick oven pizza with a few cocktails! We will be back!

Very good food, very (kid-)friendly staff, conveniently located in downtown HMB. Only 4 stars because interior is not so nice - red fake leather seats, irritating layout and semi-nice bathrooms. This could be better!

We really enjoyed our experience at Pasta Moon. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and fresh. They cut their veggies that morning for their daily use. The restaurant is clean and beautiful. We're definitely going back!

I discovered this place by chance last year when staying in Half Moon Bay for one night. I loved it so much then that this year when I visited Half Moon Bay again I made it a point to come to Pasta Moon. The restaurant's food, service and ambiance are great. Pastas are wonderful and you can order half portions... More

This place was recommended by 2 local ladies I met in the nail salon. So happy we followed their advice. I loved the decor . Hubby found a new favorite beer and loved his sausage and pasta dish. I had the Roasted Chicken salad which was fabulous. Great wait staff.

Thank Daryl B
