We were a group of 8, and all had great food. I had mussels for a appetizer, and steak as main course. Both were beautiful, nice presentation, and tasty. The others had a variety of pasta and fish dishes and all looked and tasted great. And super service too! Great cosy place! I would go back ...

We had a reservation which I would recommend. The best meal I had on my trip to California! We had great service as well. Had the soup and tagliatelle pasta. Very good!

My husband ordered a shrimp pizza and I chose mussels and a salad from the appetizer menu. We asked for everything to come at once and shared it. Every bite was delicious, and the servings were surprisingly large, we had plenty of food. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, a little fancy but not at all pretentious. The only wrinkle... More

The service was excellent, the food was innovative and fresh, but nothing could top the delight of eating elevated butterscotch pudding. It was so amazing we ordered a second!

We eat here every few months and the food and service are always top notch. You may well need a reservation on the weekend.

Best New England clam chowder anywhere I've ever eaten in the USA. Creamy and rich without being thick. Special complementary flavors from herbs make it addictive. I also recommend the butternut squash ravioli: I order it and I'm not vegetarian! Their lasagna is outstanding. Much thought and care go into their salads. Each mouthful tells you they have carefully considered... More

We arrived early to our dinner reservation and we were led to a small, noisy, and crowded room for our dinner. When we ordered my husband told the waiter that it was my birthday. He said nothing, not even "Happy Birthday." We had the clam chowder, Caesar Salad, bread, and then for dinner my husband liked his steak, potatoes, and... More

My daughter and I had dinner here while visiting Half Moon Bay and were glad we did. We shared the tempura green beans with aoli, something we've never seen in an Italian restaurant before. I had the linguini with ahi tuna. It was good, and I love spicy food, but this dish had a bit too much red pepper and... More

We had a lovely meal on the last night of a three night stay in Half Moon Bay. Food was very good and the service (hostess and waitress) were terrific. Nice ambience and a very friendly vibe. Pasta dishes were excellent.

We love going to Pasta Moon and have never had a disappointing meal there. The current menu features my favorite pasta--smoked linguine with grilled scallops and cherry tomatoes. It is a special experience. They put the uncooked homemade pasta in the smoker then prepare it with perfect tender scallops and ripe little tomatoes. It is not to be missed. We... More
