klpic3It all started with my first trip down the coast, which brought me to HWY 92 dotted with local fruit & vegetable stands. My personal love for fresh ingredients grew into a key element of the Pasta Moon concept as I came to know the local farmers and their quality products; all part of the coastal lifestyle I found so inviting here in Half Moon Bay.

Pasta Moon started out as a passionate concept where I could keep myself busy and enjoy the lifestyle of a small coastal town. Originally Pasta Moon was a place for people to dine on cuisine derived of locally grown organic produce, fish, meats and cheese supplied from local ranchers and dairies. Soon however my love for Italian cuisine compelled an ever-growing compulsion to express my creativity in the kitchen and had me composing variations on classic Italian dishes. Half Moon Bay is the perfect spot for this culinary adventure, I couldn’t resist this unique location that offered my ideal in terms of ingredients, and the peaceful pace of such a lovely rural area nestled on the coast, surrounded by a spectacular beach and nature setting.
