Articles & Reviews: Best of the ABC7 Bay Area A-List
2012 "Best Italian Food in the Bay Area"
The owners of Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay have opened this excellent neighborhood Italian restaurant, with pasta specialist Chanan Kamen (from Quince in San Francisco) turning out wonderful dishes like paparadelle and scialatielli with seasonal ingredients. The Tagliatelle Bolognese was named one of the "Top Ten Dishes of 2010" by the San Jose Mercury News. Pizzas are big enough to serve two, and starters and entrees also worth a look. Warm inviting atmosphere and great service.
