A popular destination in Half Moon Bay for 30 years, Pasta Moon Restaurant serves contemporary Italian cuisine using the freshest local produce available- in fact, easily the finest dining on the coast; (and not the most expensive!). You'll find a cozy setting for lunch or dinner, surrounded by old arched casement windows which once brought light into the Burlingame Public Library, and you'll be served by an attentive and knowledgeable staff.

As usual the food was outstanding. Enjoyed the grilled scallop salad and to-die-for lasagne.
Be sure to try the Meyer lemon dessert confection--heavenly!

Everything was great as always! However, I didn’t particularly care for the linguine special with fennel and crab. My husband tried it and loved it so he ended up sharing his lasagna.

Notice there's a number of new staff - probably need a little more training and/or be more attentive. Otherwise, foods good.

Restaurant was a bit under staffed but waiter worked very hard and managed to be pretty responsive. Portion sizes small given the prices. Food quality was good but not great, Wish had more CA wine selection and wine by the glass pours was smaller than standard (perhaps 5 ounces),

We have been going to Pasta Moon for over 10 years and now our young children are asking for it regularly. Their special menu items are nice and worthwhile. Although their Fritto Misto have been shrinking in size and protein items over time (now we barely get a few calamari and mostly onion slices or fennel). Shared between the 5 of us (3 are young children), I never even tasted any of the calamaris - and they used to have small shrimps which now is not in the dish at all.

Otherwise, the children loved their butter pasta (pasta is home made) - and asked for a 2nd helping. Our dishes were good also (risotto and crab linguine).

We were in HMB for 5 days and Pasta Moon and Dad’s Luncheonette were definitely our favorites.

3 hosts at the door all trying to help you but it’s chaos. One of them is a rude, grumpy man double checking everything two young women is doing and talking over.

Service is by an overly energetic waiter. Asks questions, but doesn’t listen to answers. You end up with drinks you did not order and get charged for them. Your order of a salad and two pastas get verified three times, well because he wasn’t listening. Wonder what he was scribbling to that pad.

Food? Mediocre ravioli soaking in melted butter. Huge lasagna compensating for dull taste.

Loud. Tables are so close to each other you can hear conversation from both tables. Good luck having a relaxed chat with your company.
