I enjoy the ambiance and the food. I hope the consistency will remain.
My partner and I went to half moon bay for the night to get away from the city. We booked this reservation after looking at the menu on opentable. The place was adorable, parking was a breeze, and the food/service was phenomenal! We over did it, but that’s what you do when you go out to eat. The food and drinks were equally delicious. We started with a small pizza and roasted cauliflower & shishito pepper piccata (both new to their menu and AMAZING!!!!) we loved their pizza too. He had the filet mignon and I had their shrimp linguine. We loved our entrees. For dessert we had their tiramisu and the key lime pie. I loved their tiramisu. Also, their lavender lemon drop was to die far!!!! I had two of them because they were so delicious. Like I said previously, we over did it. But we don’t eat out often and this place was perfect to spend the extra money and extra carb intake!
They are open all afternoon thru dinner, this works well after local theatre matinee. Friends from out of town don't have to wait until later opening time as with most dinner restaurants in town. Food is good, bit pricey but then portions are generous. Good range of options such as pastas, meat and fish entrees, pizza, salads, apps. I would recommend, always a good meal. Service was also very good.
Really an outstanding evening. The special was perfect. Service was kind and attentive. Not to noisy. Just a great place!
It took an hour to get our drink order. 30 min after we ordered food, our waiter informed me they were out of it and I’d need to order something else. My husbands pizza was not good and had way too much topping. Would not recommend
Unfortunately we did not have a good experience at this restaurant. Service was slow and unresponsive. Management did little to address the slow service. We will not be returning.
Great meal and excellent and sociable server. Enjoyable evening.
Great service and excellent food!
Interesting mix of traditional Italian along with some innovative options. Great service, wonderful rustic decor.
Great food. Great Service. Beautiful ambiance. What more
can I say...
Pies are the best I have ever had! Apple...OMG!
Loved the patio! We sat by a tabletop fireplace and were the only ones on the patio. The music was James Taylor and the weather was perfect. Pizza was delicious as was the bacon wedge. We have visited this restaurant many times before, but this was by far our best experience to date.
Had a great time sitting on the patio with our pup. It was early so the patio was pretty empty and our server was fantastic. Great food recommendations, we truly enjoyed our dinner and would highly recommend!
Overall food quality and taste was very good. We ordered several appetizers, a pasta dish and the Wild Boar Osso Buco for dinner, and the Chocolate Submission for dessert (worth the wait). We found the caprese a bit lackluster and the coffee lukewarm, other than that, it was a very good experience. Our server Victor was excellent along with other staff.
Food was excellent, but service was slow. It took forever for food to come out, even easy things like scones. Drinks were very slow, too. It was Easter, and they said they were slammed, but when I walked in from the patio to the restroom, the inside was barely half full. Something was amiss.
From the bread to the drinks and the entrees (Spaghetti and meatballs and Chicken Marsala) to the dessert -- everything was FANTASTIC! Looking forward to coming back again and again.
My parents were in from out of town so we went here for a 515pm dinner. The staff was very professional and quick to problem solve. The food was delicious as always, we had a fantastic time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful service and absolutely delicious Saturday brunch. Everything we had was super tasty.
My brother and sister-in-law were visiting from the East Coast and wanted to treat us to dinner. We arrived at the appointed time, were seated immediately, (the restaurant was full) the food was great, the service was great.. It was a great experience!
It had been awhile since I had been down to HMB. I had remembered what a great meal I had about 2 years ago at It's Italia and once again they didn't let me down. Congrats team for keeping up your standards.
Delightful lunch again. My salad, the Pumpkin Festival Salad (as a meal) is a surefire winner. And the affogato for dessert was WONDERFUL. Sitting in the window by Main Street is a perfect spot to watch the town roll by and have a lovely lunch.
We got a last minute reservation, and the restaurant was very busy and horribly noisy. To our surprise, we were escorted outside, where it was quiet and multiple heaters made the temperature very comfortable. The food was fantastic, excellent mushroom pasta and great antipasta of roasted brussel sprouts with pears and a beet salad. We would go again, but only if outdoor seating was available.
Terrific service, wonderful outside heated dining area, and the food was absolutely mouthwatering!
Excellent but my coffee was luke warm when originally served and refills were only slightly warmer. Other than that; perfect. We lingered comfortabley without bother.
Our server Solé was excellent. Food was outstanding...presentation excellent...great menu options. Enjoyed an excellent dinner. Recommend the Octopus appetizer, the Wedge Salad with Daddy’s maple bacon and the Cherry Pie! Mmmm. Had the Fish Special...recommended.
Wonderful atmosphere. Wonderful food. Wonderful experience.
Great atmosphere. Live entertainment.
The weekend brunch menu was average and I expected a greater variety of menu items. We have eaten lunch during the week and had excellent menu items with good options to pick from. Two of the brunch items should have been served with garlic bread or focascia bread to enhance the menu selection. The steak and eggs were excellent and the steak was tender and cooked to perfection. The poached egg plates were very good with polenta. The wine selection prices I thought were a little high even for a glass but you are in Half Mon Bay on a weekend. We enjoy this restaurant, especially during the week. Good parking around the corner and easy to get to.
Excellent dinner and service!
Just went out with the family for a “made up” special occasion. Got a great table chose from many tempting and creative options. Would recommend for anyone.
No gluten free options after advertising gluten free options. Out of various drinks and food options. Seems like poor planning? Staff was very nice
Great food! Everything was tasty and the octopus appetizer was awesome! Staff did a great job in trying to accommodate us since we had a small dog. It was cold and windy, but we were warmed up nicely with the outdoor heaters.
Lovely food and warm service!
Had an absolutely wonderful 4 course price fix meal for Valentine’s Day! Special care went into each dish from the appetizer, salad, main course and dessert to make it delicious, romantic and memorable! They also featured a special Valentine’s Day Drink with a rose petal as a decorative addition and a cranberry ice cube in each glass.
I chose fresh heirloom tomato buratta for my appetizer, the beet salad, 16 oz. bone in rib eye with sautéed onions an mushrooms (yum!) and to finish it off, I had the strawberries with zabagione! So good! My husband chose the Salume and cheese appetizer, filet mignon, and chocolate mouse. Oh so good!
Great prompt service throughout the evening.
It’s Italia, you really outdid yourselves! Thanks!!
This is one my most favorite restaurants and I just love it. However the valentine menu wasn’t so successful. The beet salad was an unseasoned random collection of items, my lamb was tough and almost inedible and the desserts were just not up to normal standards. Took a couple bites and pushed them away. Sad ending. Of course I will return and still love the food but this was surprising.
Nice place: good atmosphere, good service, tasty food. Great place to have a meal after admiring the ocean. Definitely worth a drive to Half Moon Bay.
We were seated quickly and then quickly forgot! A number of people who had arrived after we did were then waited on before us UMMM. Overall food was ok the rest was less than remarkable. Spend your money elsewhere!
One of the best restaurants on the coast! Love it!
oven roasted prawns
field mushrooms with arugula
all a must!
The wait staff was terrific and the food was, as always, outstanding. More than we could finish.
The restaurant was a bit loud but we were sitting in the very center to accommodate our larger party.
