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.

Pasta Moon is our favorite restaurant in the Bay Area. The cuisine, wine, and service are superb. And the friendly, relaxed atmosphere always makes us feel welcome. Thank you!

Good not great. They changed the pork chop. Felt steamed not grilled. They are consistently a good spot but we're off tonight. Still a good spot for a date.

okay - for dinner - noticing either the waiter or table attendant should have cleaned the table of bread crumbs, etc when they clear the main plates. We subsequently had dessert too and the waiter simply placed the serving over the crumbs. Prior dinners the waiter did wipe the table clean before placing utensils. In addition, one of the salads we had and the Lemon Parfait is shrinking in size. If anything, there should be some consistency/standard - call it a standard of quality - maybe the chef was having an off day. Otherwise, I'll still come by.

We went to Pasta Moon for lunch during the week. The place was quiet and getting a table was not an issue. Not sure how it is for dinner or weekends. Great food and service. We started with the fritto misto followed by seared scallops and sea bass (Corvina). All very well prepared and presented. Their home made bread was also awesome! We skipped dessert because we were too full but the options were very appealing. Great find!

We had a lovely date night at our favorite Coastside restaurant. As always, the food was exceptional (we both opted for daily specials), capped with the always toothsome Meyer lemon parfait.

My wife and I had our date night here. Kim (the owner), is a genius. We love coming here when we are on the coast. The food is fresh and amazing, every time we go. My wife had the stuffed pork chop and I had the pappardelle. We shared the asparagus appetizer. All delicious!

We are visiting from Laguna Beach to celebrate our 3 year anniversary and after reading the reviews at Pasta Moon, we decided to try it for ourselves! WOW! This place in incredible! We are such foodies- always trying to find the best places and this is definitely one of them! The restaurant looks redone, hip, yet still very sophisticated. The hostess greeted us and was so sweet! Our server, Luis, did an outstanding job! He made great recommendations and was very attentive and had a great personality. The food was out of this world! We had their house made sausage pizza, Caesar salad, half lasagna & the pappardelle pasta (my fav)! We cannot wait to come back and eat here again. We will make sure to tell everyone we know to come here!

Fantastic!
There are simply no weaknesses on the menu.
Every dish I've had (now between 15 and 20) was delicious.
It takes some time to get there from SF or the East Bay,
but it is well worth it.

We had a wonderful evening. Our server, Vicky, was very helpful in finding a gluten free and dairy free option that was amazing! She also recommended a vegan chocolate ice cream for dessert, which was the best non-dairy ice cream I have ever tasted. It is made on site and is super creamy, especially considering there is no actual milk in it! I would highly recommend Pasta Moon

Absolutely no vegan pasta options. Thought I ordered vegetarian turns out I accidentally ate bacon. Everything overpriced. They make you pay for birthday mini desert. My boyfriend didn’t like the ravioli at all it had to return it. It was like coated in sugar tasted like candy. We ended up eating one bite then returning our dishes. Bought drinks and that was it.

Lunch. We always come to pasta moon when we travel to Northern California. Never disappointed. Homemade pasta is delicious. We each got a different dish. I had the special with lemon cream sauce and crab ate it to the last bite. Service is friendly and attentive. We have been eating here for over 20 years.

I have been a long time fan of Pasta Moon, having frequented the restaurant since it opened. This is the first time I have been disappointed in both the service and the food. I ordered the linguine with crab in a lemon creme sauce. The pasta was barely warm, over cooked and stuck together as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp. The crab was ice cold; it was clear it had been taken out of the refrigerator and immediately added on top of the pasta. There was no lemon flavor to the sauce, it tasted only of creme. I was unimpressed with the salad, it was not dressed evenly. Regarding the service, we waited more than 15 minutes in between each course.

I hope this was a one time event and not an indication of the future.

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.
