Big restaurant, turning out food to unsuspecting diners, like on a production line. No care taken in the quality or presentation - just get you in, get your money and get you out.

So my husband and I were split on this: he really liked his stuffed veal and I thought my calamari steak was kind of soggy. We both had to agree that our potatoes were not cooked enough and still hard. The waiter was barely friendly...More

Caesar salad was just average. Angel hair pasta was cooked very well with a tasty tomato sauce. The lamp chops were cooked to perfection. There were 4 pieces which is generous. We had a bruschetta that was the best item of the meal. The spa...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.
