Everything was great, food, service, except very noisy.
Made a late lunch reservation for 4. I’ve seen this place at least 10 times while in town, decided to make a reservation for the last lunch seating. The place is LOUD. Like, super duper loud to the point where the father-in-law hearing aids were uncomfortable. The dining room is pretty with closely-placed tables and peaks of the ocean. We had each ordered something different. The good- lasagna with meat sauce. Got two thumbs up for that dish. The ehhh was my pasta with prawns in a spicy sauce. It had zero spice at all. Chicken Alfredo was decent but not great. The dish that was the worst was the salmon raviolis. They tasted fishy and not good. The service was prompt, good and efficient. The bathrooms were pretty and remodeled. All in all, fairly expensive for mediocre food in a loud dining room.
I have been to Mezzaluna many, many times. Everytime I go there, the food is always cooked perfectly and the waitstaff are great. It didn't seem like they had enough wait staff which is pretty much the same at every restaurant you go to.
Consistently very good, polite staff, warm and inviting atmosphere.
Good wholesome food with great service. I would definitely dine there again.
The meal and service were both great. A very pleasant luncheon
Really good food, attentive service, and an all around excellent dinner. Highly recommend!!!
The service was impeccable and the food is amazing.
Lunch. Ample food portions, fresh fish, attentive waiters, nice atmosphere
Excellent, authentic Italian food, especially gnocchi, fish, bread, and tiramisu.
We've been here before, but didn't remember the flawless execution. The tables were reasonably spaced, and that was surely a plus -- COVID19 or not!
Great experience and yummy food!!! This place is definitely recommended.
We are regulars at Mezza Luna. We find it to be a delightful place to
have lunch or dinner. The service is always attentive and personable. The food is consistently well prepared and delicious. The cocktails and wines are excellent. Mezza Luna is stuck with us and our friends as frequent diners.
OWER FAVORITE RESTAURANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful, fresh food!
Amazing food view and service
We had a cheese and meat plate and a caprese salad to start. Cheese plate was a little small but great. Entrees were lasagna ( which my husband lives for), Calabrese pasta, and Linguine w clams in white sauce. All were perfect as was the service. We had regular bread plus garlic bread. Their bread is super! Never disappointed and so happy to be dining in again!
Excellent service and excellent. My husband had the sole and I had the lasagna. What a treat.
Always an outstanding experience for me. Thank you for always giving me my favorite table!
Everything our table ordered, from salads to mains to dessert, was excellent. Highlights for me: the house made sausage and the creme brûlée.
First time for us to go to Mezza Luna to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Quick and kind and warm services for us and love the table arranged for us could see the sea view as well! Amazing pasta (we ordered Ravioli and Lasagna and pizza). My parents couldn’t stop to give thumbs up for the great dining experience! Definitely will come again!
Service and good outstanding. What more can you ask for.
We had dinner last night at Mezza Luna and found the food to be mixed between very good and just okay. The calamari, which the table shared was delicious, and the caesar salad quite good. But all the main courses we had--everything from sand dabs to gnocchi to sausage over polenta--were just okay. Not excellent and not bad. Right down the middle. The sausage and polenta was served in a tomato sauce with peppers and I found it under-seasoned. The gnocchi were tender and the cream sauce was good, but the tomato sauce was nothing special. We had dessert: fragola and creme brûlée. Both were delicious. Would I go again? I'd probably try some other place, but if someone wanted to return there, I'd be okay with that. In some ways it was exceptional and in others, just okay. All that said, the service was excellent, very attentive.
Mezza Luna is a reliably great experience! Especially great for special occasions, but this we went "just because" and had a great meal and time together with our family. I highly recommend it!
Birthday - awesome food, great service. I fly here just for their gnocchi.
Always a fun outing and wonder food. Glad they are back open ao
a regular basis. My husbands favorite is Gnocchi Gorgonzola
Good solid Italian fare. Good service and fair price.
Decided last minute to go out for dinner. I was able to find reservations on open table very easily. Service, food was absolutely amazing.
We hadn’t been to this restaurant for several years and I couldn’t remember why. We enjoyed our food, the service was good, and the staff was friendly. A larger group came in and they were very loud. I remembered why we hadn’t been there for a while when the check came. The food came was good though and we’ll be back.
Outstanding food. We had the homemade fettuccini bolognese and the fettuccini Alfredo which were plate-licking good. Also had salads, raspberry sorbetto, and bignets- all amazing. The best food we’ve had in a long time. Would definitely return.
Calamari steak was excellent
Great food good service nice choices
Intimate place on the ocean with impeccable and attentive service. The food was fresh and delicious.
We had a very tasty meal at Mezza Luna this week, this coming from a pair of very picky afficionados of traditional Italian food. The menu is extensive and posed a challenge in having to choose from so many delightful options. There was no outdoor seating at this time. The views of the water are lacking; instead you face a bunch of parked cars. But the food is what we came for, and Mezza Luna delivered.
I have visited 3 times in the past year. The service is good and the wait staff is very friendly. The homemade sausage is wonderful. I have had it with pasta and on pizzas. It is a very large restaurant with smaller rooms so it is comfortable.
Love Sacraments, Reuben, and the whole crew!
First time dining out for over a year. Mezza Luna was first on our list! Found the menu had changed a little, new wait staff. Missed familiar faces, but service was good. Food is still top notch. Worth traveling from San Leandro to Half Moon Bay!
Everything was perfect. We're thrilled to have ML back.
