We stopped by for dinner. We were seated next to a large group as a couple and therefore our service suffered in my opinion. From the beginning my wine order was incorrect. I had the Bolognese pasta dish and it was average at best and...More

The food was excellent, as was the service. Restaurant was much bigger than it appeared to be from the outside, and we had no trouble getting a table with a very nice view. Only issue I had was a little trouble finding parking...but this place...More

Most people dress casual there. I Googled it, and lunch is served 11:30 - 2:30; dinner is from 5:00 - 9:30.

Mezzaluna Restaurant is located in the historic Princeton Landing building (which was built in 1908). The harbor town of Princeton By The Sea is located 20 miles south of San Francisco. In this scenic area of Half Moon Bay, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, you can experience breathtaking coastal views and marvel at the giants waves of Mavericks surf spot. We provide nothing but the highest quality of meat, fish, produce, pasta and local fresh ingredients. Mezzaluna is continually awarded as Best Restaurant on the Coast and Best Customer Service. In 2012, Mezza Luna was awarded "Favorite Italian Restaurant" and in 2013 awarded "Favorite Overall Restaurant" and "Favorite Italian Restaurant" by the coastside community and the readers of the Half Moon Bay Review. In 2014 Mezza Luna was awarded by Open Table the "Dinners Choice Award". But it doesn't take an award to prove the quality and consistency of the great food, service and wine... You must experience it for yourself.
