Everyone was welcoming and friendly, with big smiles behind their masks. We had our dog, so we sat at one of the outside sidewalk tables. Others were sitting outside as well, as is common in pandemic times. They thoughtfully had blankets as well as patio heaters to keep guests warm, and each table had a spray bottle of hand sanitizer. The food was amazing: salad greens perfectly dressed, interesting flavor combinations, tender and well seasoned pulpo, delicious mozzarella, al dente homemade pastas. We had a couple pasta specials with local cod and chanterelles, plus the scallop pasta and the short rib ravioli. A tiramisu special was a great shared dessert. The cocktails were nice, and our server helped us pick a wine that worked with all our meals (quite the trick). And can we talk amaros? The selection was wonderful. Overall it was a wonderful experience!
We were fortunate to find a reservation that fit our needs. We arrived earlier than expected, but the hostess was still able to see us right away.
We were impressed with the variety of dishes on the menu. The service was top-notch and the food was excellent! We wished we had room to try the house-made gelato, but we were too full!
We definitely plan to visit again when we are in the area!
A special restaurant that concentrates on perfect and delicious pasta dishes. Amazing wine and amaro list. Charming staff.
Dinner was fantastic. Food and service both were wonderful, However, I Would absolutely ask for a different table. It was a bit noisy and hard to hear conversation at times. Will absolutely be back!
This was the best Italian food I’ve had for a long time. It was very busy and the restaurant is struggling with staff shortages as a lot of places currently are. However, the waitress was very aware of that and despite being rushed off her feet gave us an incredible experience. This place is a gem and will definitely be back next time visiting.
Loved the gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce. Disappointed in the pumpkin ravioli. Otherwise, a lovely evening.
Excellent gnocchi and appetizer wine was perfect service was superb.
Thanks for a lovely evening
We celebrated my dads birthday here for dinner and it did not disappoint! Wonderful dishes, friendly service and atmosphere, and great cocktails! Will recommend and dine again.
One of our favorite Pacific Grove restaurants. Always a pleasure. This trip the lamb tongue terrine special was a real treat. The speck salad was smokier than we like. The bone marrow clam chowder was as good as ever. For pasta mains we had a saffron, chanterelles, black cod special which was delicate and lovely. And a duck bolognese that was tasty, but didn't really deliver on the duck. Maybe a duck meatball would help? Do those exist? Good bottle of 2014 Borgogno 'Barbera d'Alba' Barolo DOC for a reasonable price. Another happy dinner!
Can’t eat dairy and they were very accommodating to my request. Food was good.
The service was impeccable and the food delicious!
The food was very good and so was the service.
Great place! This is the first time there and I did enjoy it, I'll come back for sure!
Great food, yummy cocktails and the service was very good. Will definetly be back!
The food is awesome have had something different every time! The crafted cocktails are amazing. This place is a real gem!
The food, service, and atmosphere were great. Even the guy who brought water and bread had a fun, warm, yet unobtrusive personality. Our server, Amanda, was charming, even behind a mask. The owner stopped by after dinner before we left to chat and cork our wine for the drive home. Great wine list, diverse in source and price. My only negative was that on the menu they don't have any "special" desserts; just gelato and sorbetto, and afogato and stout ice cream float. (I'm sure they are very good, just not my definition of "special".) Our server said they did have tiramisu, which we would have tried, but it was my birthday so we had cake at home. Another time...we will be back!
Although your restaurant was very busy on a Saturday night, we got superb service from the bartender, and our young Asian helper. In combination with the wait staff, we felt very supported. Waitress was very good, but obviously stretched thin w/ customers. We marveled at the food, and the after dinner drink, amaro, was fantastic. Thank you for a memorable experience!
Perfectly done meals - properly spiced and well presented. Fine selection of wines and house specialty bar drinks.
Excellent service and attention to detail.
This place was a little slice of heaven. We sat inside, by a big picture window, and got to enjoy the food and ambiance this restaurant provides. We shared an appetizer, pasta dish, and dessert. We were stuffed! And it was so good! I hope to come back here the next time I'm nearby. Yummy!
Our second time there in as many weeks. Took friends with us this time and still just as fantastic as the first. Great cocktails and wine list. Food it on point. Already planning our next evening out.
We had a very nice dinner.
Even though we were outside we were very comfortable.
The service was very good. The food was excellent. Even though we were the last people to leave they did not make us feel rushed.
Excellent food and service- well worth the visit!
Disappointing service which hurt the evaluation of the quality of the food.
If you are contemplating whether or not to dine at Mezzaluna Pasteria & Mozzarella Bar...there's no question at all: GO! We rated every aspect of our experience last night - from the atmosphere to the food (quality, quantity, deliciousness) - excellent because it was - yet again! Chef Peters masters Italian cuisine (among his many culinary talents) and you cannot go wrong, in any way, dining at this wonderful restaurant. Thank you Chef! Thank you, Amy!
Always excellent. Great restaurant with great people!
As always, the food was fantastic and they were so accommodating to my 2 year old daughter. I just wish we lived closer so we could come more often!
Great menu choices, cocktails and wine list! I would put it on your list!
Found it on the app, the reviews were great and now I know why. Amazing food, awesome neighborhood spot, great service. Go. Now.
Our server Teresa made a great wine recommendation, as well as food. Timely and great service! Looking forward to our next visit.
Pasta was lovely, service great, insane cocktail menu and nice wine selection.
Absolutely incredible. Some of the best Italian food I have ever eaten in my life. Everyone at my business dinner agreed. Outstanding food and the cocktails were exceptional too. Easy five stars.
Wow! So glad we found this place. Walking through the door we were warmly greeted, and the attentive service matched the welcome. Terrific wine list, by the glass or bottle. We didn't do any mozzarella, so can't comment. But if the mozzarella is half as good as their pasta, then it's GREAT. Very fresh ingredients with all pastas made on site. Compares with, and in some cases much better, than dinners I've enjoyed in Italy. Place is small, so make a reservation.
Amazing! Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive, food was super flavorful and the drinks were fantastic. A+ experience
The pasta was amazing and the service was pleasant, efficient and gave great guidance
Food and service were exceptional
A bit noisy and frenetic but tolerable
Food was delicious. Service was outstanding. EVERYONE at this restaurant takes pride in their job and works together to make it a well oiled machine. We will be back again soon. Simply fabulous all around.
My wife and I are “regulars”— great food, priced very fairly. Service (Amber) super. Homemade pasta and creative sauces. Want wine? They are priced below Safeway! Last night was a “10”-
This restaurant is a find in Pacific Grove! A friend from Italy and I decided to try it and it did not disappoint. The selection is limited but the food was very good and in some cases excellent, the service is friendly and good and I was able to bring my dog who stayed with us in our outdoor seating. This is another PG gem!
Restaurant has a nice ambiance for being located on a busy road. Tight but not too compact. Food was good but I think I was expecting to be blown away due to reviews/recommendations. I thought the service was good but not amazing. Would definitely go back to try again!
