Italian
A popular destination in Half Moon Bay for 30 years, Pasta Moon Restaurant serves contemporary Italian cuisine using the freshest local produce available- in fact, easily the finest dining on the coast; (and not the most expensive!). You'll find a cozy setting for lunch or dinner, surrounded by old arched casement windows which once brought light into the Burlingame Public Library, and you'll be served by an attentive and knowledgeable staff.

    What a wonderful surprise to find such a thoughtful and high quality restaurant while we were visiting a friend in the area. Wine list was well conceived with small producers, mainly California & Italy. All pastas homemade. My gnocchi was superb! The interior was cozy, kind of chez panise style…I would definitely recommend.

    Food was unbelievably good! We stayed at the Ritz, but preferred this place for dinner as the quality was first class.

    Truly excellent Italian food. Staff are knowledgeable, attentive and thoughtful. It wasn’t an exceptionally busy evening as the restaurant has a lot of space. But we were seated it a quiet corner which was what we’d requested. Squisito e speriamo di tornare subito. Grazie tanto!

    The food and service were great. The lasagna was perfect and the salad was so fresh that it tasted like the lettuce was just picked.

    Excellent food and service! We arrived many minutes late to our Mother’s Day brunch, and the understanding hostess showed great character. She was very accommodating, and offered a rock-star window table. Our waiter, Fabio, was courteous and prompt. Also, he humanized the experience with a true sense of humor; a rare quality nowadays. The cioppino and smoked salmon stood out as perfect! Highly recommend a visit.

    Great meal on Mother's Day. All three entrees at our table were wonderful. It has been awhile since I went to Pasta Moon. I love to new (to me) location at 845 Main St. with plenty of parking.

    We were at Pasta Moon yesterday for Mother's day. It was perfect. The food was amazing. We've been regulars for years. The food has always been great, but the kitchen has constantly been upping their game.

    Although the surroundings and food presentation are elegant, the food quality was below expectations, particularly considering the price charged to attend their Mother's Day brunch. The bruschetta was charred. We were told by the waitress, who consulted the cook, that that's the way this toast comes out of the oven, tasting like charcoal. The meat dishes were more fat than meat. The service was good, but overall it was a disappointing experience for our special occasion.

    One of the best dining options in half moon bay. Homemade pastas, fresh seafood, a huge menu with lots of enticing daily specials. There is something for everyone even if you don’t enjoy pasta or seafood there’s a delicious rib eye or roast chicken.

    Pasta Moon is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I hosted my daughter's wedding reception here and never get tired of the food even though I visit every couple of months. A gem on the California coast!
