Description: It's Italia opened in 1997 as a San Francisco style trattoria and pizzeria serving gourmet pizzas, house pastas, and creative salads, always with a California Italian flavor, and a wine list of 10-12 varietals. Ten years later, our menu has expanded to include steak and seafood grilled specialties, artful antipasti, and a decadent array of housemade desserts from our pastry chef. Over 120 bottles line up on our wine list from Italy, California, France, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand. As always, we have remained faithful to a local coastal California Italian cuisine, with its cosmopolitan nature, bringing produce and cheeses from local farms, meats and poultry from quality and organic growers, and seafood from a variety of waters. Most importantly, we are a little local community restaurant that serves locals. Lots of locals! Our advertising is mostly word of mouth. Our energy is inviting, positive, and friendly, and when you come in, you are invited to be part of our family.

Perfectly situated in the middle of Main Street, food was excellent. Had a couple of different pasta dishes and they did not disappoint. Would eat here again.

While driving to San Francisco we stopped in Half Moon Bay for lunch and discovered It's Italia. A very charming restaurant in the downtown area. The pizza was amazing.

We had a great lunch.... Good and creative dishes. The service was ok... A little slow.... Too many folks for the number of servers. The atmosphere is great for the beach.... But is on the noisy side. We would try it again.

We had no reservations, but the wait was not too long - especially for a Saturday night.

The restaurant was cozy and nice, though, because it was a full house, it was a little noisy to carry on a conversation.

The food was delicious and the service was exceptional :)

The only down side was that It was pretty pricey :(
