Arrived on Monday and it was very quiet after the busy weekend. Had a great table and enjoyed our dinner. Salad was made with very fresh greens and dressing was just right. My wife had the veal picatta and I had the fresh Halibut. Both...More

This restaurant has an intimate and comfortable fine dining feel, never loud, with excellent service and very fresh homemade food. Pizza, pasta and gnocchi are all excellent, don't skip out on dessert because tiramisu and cannoli are incredible!

The headline says it all! A white tablecloth well above average setting yet casual and very inviting. The service staff was very attentive and kept everything timely!

The salmon Dolores and the shrimp a la Roberto are my favorite entrees. Start with a fine glass of wine, and finish your meal with creme brulee or beignets, or both, and a cup of coffee. Great food, excellent wines, and excellent service. This is...More

Reservation notwithstanding, I was placed at a table with no view of the water. So I'm reviewing this as if it were an Italian restaurant with a view of a parking lot, since that's what I got. It was lousy. The food was soldierly, expensive,...More

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.
