Discover for yourself why VIA UNO was just voted Half Moon Bay's favorite new restaurant by the locals and got a favorable nod in the October issue of Sunset Magazine. Enjoy big city taste in small town casual coastal ambiance including a modern-rustic dining room, dog-friendly outdoor patio, private wine room, and full bar. Our authentic 6,000 pound wood-fired pizza oven specially hand-made in Naples for VIA UNO creates light-as-air pizza crusts and our menu features Calabrian specialties you're unlikely to sample anywhere else unless you take a trip to Italy. Our produce is hand-selected from Half Moon Bay's local farms and our Old World-heavy wine list features varietals imported from Calabria. VIA UNO - where authentic Calabrian tradition gets a fresh new locally-sourced interpretation!

"FOOD: More like Italy than San Mateo. Good ingredients, some variety; skilled preparation.
SERVICE: Wait staff friendly and on the ball, owner and management working to see that all is well. When crowded, dishes can come a bit slow.
AMBIENCE: A step and a half above a pizza joint: cloth napkins, decent silverware and stemware, on bare laminate butcher block design tables. Loud in main dining room. Some enjoy the heated covered patio. Views are limited. Right off Highway 1. There is an air of FUN in spite of the average visuals.
VALUE: The management has priced this tactically. It is not a bargain, but it is worth going.
If they decide to raise the prices of food or wine at all, we will stop coming. It's that simple.
