Pasta Moon is a very good and fun restaurant to eat at. The lemon meringue parfait dessert is my favorite dessert there. The service and food are both excellent.

Haven't been to Pasta Moon in over 20 years but it is still as good as it was back then just bigger. Pizzas are light and tasty and pasta is innovative.

This is, according to Tripadvisor, the best restaurant in Half Moon Bay. Well, we are very curious to see how bad the rest must be, because eating here was a disappointment. The dishes were moderate, despite the high prices and the interior is cheap. There...More
