Atmosphere fun and great spot in HMB for dinner. Service was super slow from taking our order to delivering food to the table. We had a party of 8...7 out of 8 received their food at the same time and #8 was out of luck....More

We visited Half Moon Bay this weekend. We ate at Mezza Luna and had lasagna and salmon ravioli. I thought the ravioli was good and my husband thought the lasagna was okay. The server was friendly and efficient. Nice decor. No view

We love going to Mezza Luna for great Italian food in a cozy setting reasonably priced. Tuesday specials are three courses and usually quite good. We love their pasta. Their fish is always fresh. Their waiters (gender specific) are knowledgeable and charming.

Had a family celebration here recently and the experience was wonderful, from the attentive service to the very fresh-tasting food. The antipasto and pasta courses were excellent as you might expect, but so was the lamb, steak and dessert. I wondered if some of the...More

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.
