It's Italia opened in 1997 as a San Francisco style trattoria and pizzeria serving gourmet pizzas, house pastas, and creative salads, always with a California Italian flavor, and a wine list of 10-12 varietals.
Ten years later, our menu has expanded to include steak and seafood grilled specialties, artful antipasti, and a decadent array of housemade desserts from our pastry chef. Over 120 bottles line up on our wine list from Italy, California, France, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand.
As always, we have remained faithful to a local coastal California Italian cuisine, with its cosmopolitan nature, bringing produce and cheeses from local farms, meats and poultry from quality and organic growers, and seafood from a variety of waters.

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.

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!

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.
