We are staying at the nearby Ritz Carlton and the concierge recommended Pasta Moon for lunch with our kids. It is located on the quaint Main Street of Half Moon Bay and offers delicious authentic Italian food. Our meals came out quickly and were piping hot. It was all delicious. My only suggestion would be to offer smaller size pizzas... More

While located on the main street, this location is next to an area with lots of trees and flowers so the view can be amazing. We sat in the back and had a beautiful view with a nice breeze. (Ask to be seated there!) We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. The host stand is located by the... More

The charm and the service is excellent. The quality of the food was great. There is room for improvement and they really need to get their light fixed and stable. As eating every once in a while the lights would noticeably go dim. Could this be because of hitting the microwave button.

Stopped in here for lunch while exploring Half Moon Bay. Menu is a bit limited but had some good choices for all types of Italian cuisine. Good fresh patas. I had the Parpardelle with Proscuitto which was excellent and my kids had some pizzas. Good service but a bit slow to start. Good place for lunch.

We were a little early for our reservation (highly recommended) and started at the bar. The bartender is charming and good. We proceeded to our table after they transferred our bar tab. Specials were explained. We ordered the house cured olives and a special salad, and bread was served with EVOO and local balsamic vinegar. Hubby had the minted parpadelle... More

We were here as a special treat for my son's birthday and whilst the food was good (particularly the local green bean tempura) and the wine recommendation was excellent we felt rushed, with main courses arriving 5 minutes after we finished starters. We then asked for time before looking at the desert menu and shortly after that were presented with... More

Fresh pasta, seasonal menu, and gourmet flavors. Definitely pricier but worth it for special occasions or date nights. Modern decor, accommodates large parties, and is just all around delicious.

Words I can think of to describe this experience are appetizing, delightful, rich and exquisite ! Situated in the pleasant Half Moon Bay neighborhood, this heavenly place is a must go for Italian food lovers. I was hoping to taste different world cuisines during my trip to CA. On a sunny Saturday afternoon we found this master piece lying low... More
