Welcome to It’s Italia! We are nestled in the heart of Half Moon Bay, in the beautiful Half Moon Bay Inn. We recently remodeled to bring back the original feel of this historic building to our restaurant, featuring archways, frescoes, original large wood pillars and ceiling beams, country cement countertops, wrought iron chandeliers and authentic accent pieces. Our old world decor was influenced by many visits to Italy, especially to Umbria, often called the "green heart of Italy," where vineyards and olive farms dot the hilly landscape.
Since 1997 locals and visitors alike have come to love the warm, Italian atmosphere of our neighborhood restaurant. We began as a Pizzeria but have expanded our menu to encompass a full range of Cal-Italian cuisine prepared using the bounty of the Coastside’s many local farms, wineries and fisheries. Influences from various other cultures including South American, Asian and Portuguese swim in and out of the net of our menu. Our extensive wine menu includes offerings from many regions of Italy as well as France, Australia, New Zealand and California.
We are surrounded by hills to the east and the ocean to the west. A beautiful, natural setting where you can enjoy all the pleasures of nature, the charm of a beautiful, historic small town and a visit to It’s Italia to round out a delightful visit!
