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.

We have dined here the last two Christmas Eves, and even on such a busy night, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The wait staff is professional but very engaging, the food is excellent, the experience is everything a special occasion should be. Highly recommend it!

7 for brunch, and everyone was happy. We had a variety of items from the cannelloni special, to pizza, muscles, salads, homemade pasta and veal cutlets. All were great. We shared 3 deserts, and I have to say the chocolate cream puffs were to die for. Will definitely visit again, and add it to our list of great places to eat when in the Half Moon Bay area.

Mezza Luna is our favorite Italian. The service is excellent and friends. But it is the food that keeps drawing us back. They serve the best lamb chops and are a must try.

This place is the gem of the harbor restaurants at the Princeton Harbor ( Half Moon Bay). It's a fine dining atmosphere n Princeton harbor for less bucks the that over priced casual diner called the Fish Trap. That over priced joint should be called the tourist trap. As tourists wait in line for an hour for expensive, mediocre fish in a cafeteria setting.

Mezza Luna is beautiful, pro wait staff and gourmet cuisine. My wife and I had the seafood salad, crispy fried calamari, ciopinio, seafood fettuccine ( the fettuccine was home made). This is not Just one of the best Italian/seafood restaurants in the little harbor, but one of the best in the Bay Area

Average food and average prices, very casual, good service and ample parking-view of ocean but not directly on the ocean
