Description: Mezzaluna Restaurant is located in the historic Princeton Landing building (which was built in 1908). The harbor town of Princeton By The Sea is located 20 miles south of San Francisco. In this scenic area of Half Moon Bay, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, you can experience breathtaking coastal views and marvel at the giants waves of Mavericks surf spot. We provide nothing but the highest quality of meat, fish, produce, pasta and local fresh ingredients. Mezzaluna is continually awarded as Best Restaurant on the Coast and Best Customer Service. In 2012, Mezza Luna was awarded "Favorite Italian Restaurant" and in 2013 awarded "Favorite Overall Restaurant" and "Favorite Italian Restaurant" by the coastside community and the readers of the Half Moon Bay Review. In 2014 Mezza Luna was awarded by Open Table the "Dinners Choice Award". But it doesn't take an award to prove the quality and consistency of the great food, service and wine... You must experience it for yourself.

Great food. I had the pasta primavera and my husband had the tortellini in cream sauce. Delish. Waiter was a bit rude....arrogant and rushed.

Husband had made reservations, but when we got there, host tried to seat us in the noisy bar. Nope. Then, she seated us in the main dining room in a tiny alcove, when there was a window seat already available. AFter asking to be moved, we were. But not a nice start to the evening.

They have been there for years! Get there early on a weekend otherwise you will be waiting a long time. They have a bar inside, but it's cramped. Food is usually consistant. The Noicchi(sp) with pesto is great. If you like goat, they serve it around Easter time and is always good! Nice place if your in the mood and want to have a decent meal with family.

Heard about this place from friends. Sweet little spot. Their home made pasta was old world yummy. Service excellent. An old world classic with a local touch. Smoked salmon delish.

Nice place. Very quick in and out. Friendly staff and reasonably priced. For 2 of us, just a rapidly prepared plate of pasta and a pizza, but well presented with good flavours.
