We visited the area recently with family and had the chance to visit the Pasta Moon restaurant. It popped up on our gluten-free app as one of the few options in the area so off we went. I'm so glad we did! The restaurant is nicely appointed and our table was near the front window with excellent spacing between guests. Our server was outstanding as was all supporting staff. Efficient, responsive, and friendly, we found the environment accommodating for any number of dining experiences including child-friendly, casual/business, and even a bit romantic. Really nice environment.
Now, for the important stuff. The food. Two of our party of four are gluten-free; the other two weren't. We ordered a mixture of appetizers, pasta, and "regular" fare, as well as the all-important dessert. We didn't sample the wines, although my husband partook of a nice port as dessert.
Appetizers were outstanding. My husband tried the olives (he was in heaven) and the rest of us had the soup of the day which was lovely. Absolutely delicious parmesan and FRESH vegetables that still had some bite. They were able to accommodate the soup as both gluten- and gluten-free friendly so everyone was satisfied. The two gluten types LOVED the breads - especially the focaccia - the latter so much that it went home.
The gluten free pasta was excellent. The sauce was nicely balanced and not overdone. Portion was perfect. The gluten pasta looked amazing and my husband (who typically hates pasta so the order was a surprise) finished it off. That says it all. My uncle ordered the lemon chicken which looked delicious and he was quite satisfied. I'd definitely order that in the future. Finally, we had butterscotch pudding for dessert. Heaven.
Overall, this was a really nice dining option and I'd return in a heartbeat. My uncle has lived in the bay area for almost 40 years and frequents restaurants a good deal. He'd never been to the Pasta Moon but said he'd be returning soon with his "lady friend." He was so happy we'd visited since he now had a "new find."
I'd highly recommend the Pasta Moon to both the gluten and gluten-free types out there. Good food, excellent service, and we thought the prices weren't unreasonable.
