Mezza Luna Restaurant
Great dining experience! Friendly, attentive staff and our meals were fabulous-pasta cooked just right, with just the right amount of seafood and excellent sauce. We’ll be back!
I celebrated my birthday there in March, and this past Saturday we invited our friends to dine with us. we all enjoyed our food.
I would definitely recommend this place. Thank you!
We celebrated Mother’s Day a few days after the holiday at our favorite restaurant. We enjoyed a wine from the Umbria region of Italy. Our appetizer was calamari cooked to perfection. We enjoyed our entrees, clam linguini in white sauce and the meat ravioli in tomato sauce special. Both dishes were exquisite! The chocolate volcano dessert was delicious with melted chocolate inside, and completed a wonderful meal. Our server was attentive and friendly. It was a perfect evening!
Wonderful local restaurant near the harbor with homemade pastas, delicious calamari and friendly staff.
Awesome meal, and great service. We were very pleased
Absolutely fantastic food and good service for such a busy day! Love love love this restaurant
Had pizza and linguine with seafood; both very good.
The pizza dough was light and soft, well cooked, not too heavy with topping.
Pasta was a good portion, with plenty of seafood.
To finish a light ritamisu and good coffee.
We had Mother’s Day brunch there in the big room. It was a bit dark. Not full. We had asked a waiter to help take a picture of our family. He said wait... literally we waited for 2 mins. It didn’t sound like a long time but when you have a large group... it was. The food was fine. The handmade pasta was cooked a bit soft... or maybe it was the way it was made. The ravioli was good. The fried calamari was good. Overall it was an ok experience. Something was off with the atmosphere...
Wonderful service, great Italian food can't wait to visit again.
It was delicious...we went back even though we were only in the area for a week.
Views were amazing but service was not. The host made us feel like he was ready to tell us to take off if we didn't have a reservation. Our server seemed like she didn't feel like being there. She didn't offer us a children's menu for our 5 year old. We had to ask if they had one (and I knew they did from OpenTable) and she said yes they did, we had to specifically ask if she could bring it. It was really weird. And finally, another server giving us bread threw down the plates loudly. Again, very weird.
We were presentable and polite the whole time so I don't understand why we got these 2 rude servers. The food was good. Crab cakes good. But the service ruined our experience. It's too bad for the price of the food. The table next door had an awesome server who sounded super nice and personable to his table. Wish we had him!
We have been going to Mezza Luna for years and after this time we will not be back for awhile.
The food was ok. The lava cake tasted like they took it out of the freezer and over baked it.
We had to ask for our water glasses to be filled two times before they filled them.
my 2 friend's & I were celebrating their birthdays. the dinner was excellent and the service superb. we were able to visit and have our meal in comfort.
Always consistently delicious ......!
The owner is so gracious and the staff on point!
Great meal . I enjoyed the zuppa del pescatore and my wife had luigini bui with prawn calamari and scallops. Both of enjoyed the fresh fish.
Cocktails were wonderful. Great staff. However, the food was mediocre. Seafood in the the pasta dish tasted too fold and fishy. The other pasta dish (the special that nigh) was eh...
Fantastic as always.
Very enjoyable meal. Food was perfect, calamari was wonderful. Great time
Excellence and superb service!!! Food is exquisite!!! Going there for years now. Always delicious!!!
We love Mezza Luna. The staff are friendly and the service is beyond comparison. It almost feels like being home when we eat there. The food is the best! We love the genovese and the NY steak is amazing. You cannot go wrong with whatever your food choice is at Mezza Luna.
Great service and great food! Hope to visit again soon.
The steak was good not the best, but then again it's not a steak house. My wife loved her chicken fettuccine. Service was excellent, glass of tea was always full and server had great recommendations for dinner.
Slow service, server forgot the soup (carrot soup, which wasn’t flavorful). I didn’t care for my entree though the rest of my group did.
Good food 🥘 good wine 🍷 good atmosphere ! A definite go to when staying in Pillar Point !
We come to Mezza Luna for our special occasions. The food is great as well as the service.
Waiters and Waitresses were wonderful. Always helpful and many many smiles. The food is always fresh and the specials are great. Love coming to this restaurant when ever we are driving up the coast. A must stop for great italian food.
One of our favorite local go to places. Consistently very good.
Daughter’s birthday! It was super!
What a fantastic experience. My mom and I ventured here on a Friday night. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was friendly and attentive. I love the atmosphere and decoration of this comforting yet classy establishment. We brought in our own wine: corkage is reasonable. To start, we shared the grilled vegetable appetizer. What a simple yet elegant dish. A bruschetta crostini accompanied, tender grilled zucchini, and roasted red peppers and beets. There was also fresh tomatoes, a delicate piece of cheese (which alas I could not enjoy) and a savory assortment of olives. We paired our sensational starter with fresh, warm bread.
For dinner, we both ordered: Linguine della Baia
linguine sautéed with clams, calamari, scallops, shrimp in a light tomato and white wine sauce
Oh my gosh! An ocean of deliciousness! The sea creatures were savory, and perfectly cooked! The sauce, I could have drank with a spoon. The noodles were perfectly aldente! I savored every single bite.
I will be thinking about this meal for a long time.
We had an absolutely wonderful time celebrating our friend’s 87th birthday. Everyone on your staff was very accommodating and wonderful. Mezza Luna is always our Go To celebratory restaurant!
We had a fantastic date night at Mezza Luna! We started the evening with one of our favorite wines from the Abruzzo area, and began our dining adventure with minestrone, the zuppa del giorno, and the Calabrese pizza. Both starters were excellent with just the right amount of spice to make both very flavorful. We chose pastas for our entrees, Linguini alla Toto', one with red sauce and one with white sauce. We enjoyed different versions of the same dish, both with succulent clams. The perfect finish to our special meal was the delectable mango sorbet. Once again, Mezza Luna, you have shined and shared your culinary talents with us! Thank you!
We always have such a wonderful experience at Mezzaluna. The service is excellent, attentive but not overbearing. the food is prepared well with healthy but not overwhelming portions. Great Italian food in a comfortable environment!
We came here to celebrate a birthday, and we wanted to sit near a window to get a good view of the ocean, which we got. The waiters are not pushy making us rush to get in a order. The Ambiance was nice but it got noisier as the day reach close to brunch time. The food was good. What we did not like was when cars started parking right outside the window and our view was blocked. Other than that we had a fun time.
Wonderful, warm, welcoming, upbeat atmosphere, great for family celebrations, consistently beautifully prepared food.
Noisy though, so ask for best place to be seated, if you have a group w/ several guests who are hard-of-hearing.
Great pizza and lasagna. Caesar salad was ok. Service. Was excellent. Will go again
Always love Mezzanine Luna!
Restaurant needs update. Food quality and presentation is really not good. It’s like dining out in the 50s. Geriatric scene. Only positive point is table wine is cheap and excellent.
Great dinner veal was excellent wrapped inside with ham and cheese plus a Devine wine sauce and our green beans were outstanding. Chocolate dessert was yummy. Highly recommend.
A wonderful dining experience. The owner was not there this time so the service was a bit off.
As all HMB area residents and other Bay Area residents also know, Mezza Luna is one fine superb top notch restaurant. Just damn good. Don't expect a Michelin star...they don't need one; moreover, that's not why people continually and repeatedly go there. They dine there for the food, service, casual yet lovely atmosphere. And if you want the best value, go for their Tuesday specials. But the main thing is to go...just go; you will be glad you did!!
