Great food and service. Pretty noisy, hard to carry on a conversation.
We enjoyed a very nice meal. All the food was excellent. Two of us shared the halibut and the lasagna. Both were great. Our server, Gino, was excellent. We will be back again.
Outside dinning was delightful! Server was attentive and not intrusive. Food was outstanding!
Disappointing…the menu here used to be fabulous and included wood-fired pizzas, great salads and always some simple fish dishes. Now it is overly rich and the pizzas are not on the menu. The basil besto gnocchi was way too rich and creamy to have more than a few bites. Salad OK. Best part of dinner was the focaccia at the start of the meal. Salmon only OK - another sauce on that and uninspired potatoes and sautéed chard. I love the atmosphere here but not coming back. :-(
Our server was amazing! Delicious food!
The service was excellent, the food was subpar. Our appetizer: one was burnt and dry and seemed like some thing that was reheated or at the end of it’s life. The second one had a taste that was very inconsistent.
The main course, one was under cooked the other was supposed to hacve mashed potatoes and had a consistency of some thing like a couscous, the steak was way too salty and the dessert was their version of creme brûlée and it just ok and the Key Lime pie describes ‘cookie’ crust, it was thick, hard, salty and tasted burnt. Couldn’t finish it.
This was a very disappointing experience. I’m not sure what happened, but we won’t go back to a restaurant just because of the great service.
If the question is, ‘why did they continue eating it?’, we paid for it. What would they have done?
They did comp a desert for the undercooked food, but get better at making it.
Excellent food. Comfortable & safe outdoor seating. Excellent service.
The food was great here. Pablo's service was amazing. Would definitely recommend.
Always wonderful food, service and ambiance.
Great food options, excellent service and fantastic bloody Mary’s!
Brunch was excellent!
Hohum. Waiter must have Forgotten to order our salads. Nothing outstanding
Great outdoor space
My food was ok, but my date's food was not cooked properly. She had the calamari steak dinner which was cold and soggy, I hate the artichoke ravioli which was hot but on both of ours the artichoke hearts they added were extremely salty, like they took them out of the car and just put them on the dish. Our server was nice but never came back to check on us after getting our food otherwise would have sent hers back.
We were well taken care of by the attentive staff. The brunch was fabulous! Need to do this again and soon!
We did a double date with friends and we all agree the food, ambience, location and staff/ service were all amazing!
Only one entree was not great. My gnocchi tasted burnt. It was supposed to be browned but I think it was over done. The rest of the entrees were good and typically the food is always excellent. I will still go back. I think it was a bad day for that dish.
Great service and wonderful food. Definitely try this restaurant.
6pm reservations on a Tuesday night early fall. Not busy. A few of us wanted iced tea and were told they were out of iced tea ???. A caprese type
salad listed on the menu posted outside the restaurant that was of interest to one of us was not listed on the menu provided. They were able to accommodate and make it. Service was extremely slow given not too many guests. I suspect they like other restaurants are short staffed. We were hoping to sit outside in rheir charming courtyard but were told they were only serving inside tonight...despite lovely weather. There are other Italian restaurants in HMB worth trying.
Food was great - but service poor. We got there on time for our 6pm reservation; took about 10 minutes before our order was taken; 20+ min before appetizer came; didn’t get main course til about 7:40. Waiter was pleasant but didn’t offer any explanation, even after we asked about it.
We had eaten there a couple of months ago for the first time and service was excellent; waiter (and entire staff) very attentive -and food was great. This time, food really good, but service lacking. I appreciate what a difficult time restaurants are going through lately, so I’m willing to give them another chance.
Always a fave.
The food was really excellent and we both felt that the service was good, too. Wait-staff were very attentive.
Very nice outdoor eating. Heaters work well! It was out last dinner before home and it was a good choice to a lovely week.
Service was beyond excellent.
Birthday weekend kickoff
Great time and great food!
Simply outstanding! Authentic Italian cuisine, excellent sourcing of ingredients, wonderful service. We will be back every time we visit Half Moon Bay.
We love It’s Italia! We go every year for the Pumpkin Festival!
Great restaurant, great food!
Sauces are tasty and pasta is crisp.
I had a BD party for my husband here and it was wonderful! The service, ambiance and food were perfect although it did get a bit cold on the patio at the end, but it was 9 pm in mid October. Betsy, the owner, was so accommodating and helpful I was totally pleased with the whole event.
We celebrated our anniversary at Its Italia on a Wednesday evening. We were seated in the courtyard patio in front of a fireplace. The service was excellent and the food was great! We started with a shared cranberry, walnut, feta cheese salad. For entrees I had the Baked Penne Alla Vodka and dear husband had the salmon. We also received a complimentary dessert as it was a special occasion. We would definitely return when in Half Moon Bay again.
Excellent modern Italian food in a lovely venue, with both indoor and outdoor seating.
Overall, a good experience but I didn't particularly like my choice of entree. It lacked proper seasoning. However, I will be returning as most of my choices off the menu have been great. I believe it is one of the better restaurants on Main St., Half Moon Bay.
A lovely warm ambiance on the patio. Busy but didn’t feel crowded. Friendly staff and delicious food. Will definitely return and recommend
The food as always was delicious! We love the decor & setting. Our waiter was excellent.
However, the noise level was horrible! So loud with people having to yell to communicate. We’ve eaten here fir years & never remember it being so loud! Asked to move tables, but they said all tables were reserved. Due to Covid, once seated they don’t want to have to re-sterilize table, so no moving allowed☹️
Server and staff were warm and friendly
The food was outstanding as usual. The cocktails were well prepared and wine I ordered was excellent. It appeared that they may have been a bit short-staffed in the server department, so service was just a touch slow. Our server was very personable and engaging. Also, the noise level was higher than I have experienced. Overall we had a great time and a fantastic meal, and we will be back.
Good was excellent and service was also very good.
The dinner was excellent and the service very helpful. We liked the outdoor tent; it was a cozier experience than some outdoor dining. The prices, while high, were not exorbitant like some other Half Moon Bay restaurants. We will definitely return if we visit again.
On patio so noise level was low. Food and service were excellent. Celebrating a birthday and they brought a sundae with vanilla ice cream, raspberries, whipped cream and mint sprig dusted with powered sugar. Plenty so the three of us could share the dessert.
Must Go place!!!
It was my birthday and they made it really special. Kudo to Gino who was our server and he has been really great, thank you so much for your services and we really enjoyed!!
