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.

“Lunch bunch”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

There was 5 of us. We started out with a sausage and mushroom pizza. It was tasty. 3 of us had Calamari Piccata. It was wonderful. 1 had pasta with vodka cream sauce, she loved it. 1 had Gorgonzola gnocchi, outstanding. We really didn't have room for dessert but they brought us ice cream because it was Nancy's birthday. The service was very good. We would all go back again.

“best steak”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Not so attractive inside. The salad station is open for the customer to see and it was an eyesore. For those prices I expect the decor to match.
Food and service was fine. If I go there again I'll make sure to be seated somewhere other than close to the kitchen.

“Good Foccacia Bread”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We enjoyed our dinner and the salads were awesome there. The bread they serve was good, loved the foccacia bread, but needs to be softer, less tough. Prices are ok.. It's Half Moon Bay and everyone demands prices that seem more than anywhere else, but we don't do it very often so didn't worry about it this time. Wil go back...easy walking from many hotels locally.

“Great food; great service; beautiful location”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We ate there two nights in a row, once to see if we wanted to have our wedding dinner there and once to host our guests after the wedding. I enjoyed what I had the first night so much that I ordered it again on night # 2. Not one clunker among the ten of us. Bravo!

We got right in. Good selection. Basic Italian food and good portions. Ambience is so-so but functional. A good choice for dinner.
