Description: 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.

“An enjoyable and relaxed meal”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

A very welcoming and comfortable restaurant. Our party of four was seated by the window and we received excellent service. I chose the pork loin which was very tasty and filling. Would happily eat here again if in the area.

“Nice Restaurant In Half Moon Bay”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

My husband and I were in Half Moon Bay over Memorial Day weekend this year. We were given a list of restaurants by the hotel and decided to give Mezza Luna a try. We enjoyed our meal so much the first evening that we returned a second evening. The lasagna was amazing. The noodles were so thin but there were so many layers. It was a such a unique blend. We went toward the beginning of the dinner hour and had virtually no wait at all, The desserts in the case looked amazing but unfortunately we did not save room for them! If you are looking for a nice Italian meal that is more traditional than some of the other restaurants in the area, make sure you check out Mezza Luna.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

I was by myself for lunch & they sat me in a corner away from everyone else & they were not very busy. I was not expecting much but the salmon & pasta I ordered was delicious.

“Flexible for romance or family”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

There are multiple dining area's, one better for an extended romantic dinner and another for fidgeting kids and blue jeans. Overall, a wonderful place. Pretty plates with reasonable portions. Get pasta n of potato's (we got potato's cold), and the canoli was 't crunchy/fresh as I'd have liked it. I'll go back...

“Nice, but better at my house”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Nice Italian restaurant, nice atmosphere, but nothing extra special except for the view. We shared a tomato and mozarello salad and each ha spaghetti Bolognese and a glass of wine. $80 by the time we got out the door which was somewhat overpriced. My wife has much better Bolognese sauce, but the restaurant was nice and the view of the harbor is excellent. Some fresh ground parmigano cheese would have been a nice touch instead of spooning out powdered parmigano.
