  • "Saturday night dinner, loved our calamari and especially parmesan fritters for appetizer; bucatini carbonara and garganelli bolognese were very tasty for entrees, topped off by the bomboloni for dessert. Table upstairs overlooking Greenwich Avenue was perfect, the dining room there is probably the prettiest in the area, it's always fun coming back."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The service was friendly and very attentive. The food was excellent and varied. We had the prosciutto & fontina fritters to start which were light, crispy and flavorful! My date had the butternut squash ravioli which was exceptional! Sweet and a little nutty with the right balance of savory. I had the four cheese faro cooked risotto style. It was creamy and flavorful. Dessert we shared the cheesecake with salted caramel. So delicious and light. the perfect ending."

  • "I have been here three times in two months. Each time I am in Greenwich I drop by for the delicious lunch menu, which includes great cocktails. The tiled ceiling is amazing and by the same artisan who did Grand Central's Oyster Bar."

  • "I have been to Morellos many times in the past and enjoyed it. This past Sunday was a big disappointment. The service was very slow, even to get a cup of coffee took very long. The eggs Benedict we all ordered was basically a hard boiled egg on bread. The steak was not cooked as we ordered it. I noticed the table next to us had the same issues. I mentioned it to the waitress nicely but she could have cared less. Wow what a disappointment. I will give them one more try and hope this isn't a new trend."

  • "We were disappointed overall. The service, food and ambiance did not match the food."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Its very good, quality, dependable, fresh food here. I appreciate and would encourage them to keep up their changing menu. I like that they are sooo different from their counterparts in Manhattan and don't overdo the body parts, innards, bacon, pork, and truffle oil in every dish! That's so yesterday! Service is always excellent, the right mix of friendly and attentive. Plus, love their wine list, and some of their cocktails are really refreshing and perfectly mixed! The front desk/reception is always accomodating when it comes to seating requests/preferences, regardless of whether we've booked on OT or not. Love that!"

  • "Our group of 4 had a nice, comfortable dinner. However I have to agree with reviews I read before going. The staff could be friendlier," an enjoy your meal" or something pleasant would be nice....especially in a restaurant this style!"

  • "My daughter invited my three sisters and a cousin to a wonderful lunch at Morello's last Saturday. The service was excellent and the lunch selections were varied and delicious, especially the Butternut Squash soup and Arugula salad with grilled chicken or shrimp. The surprise of the luncheon was the dish of Boboloni ( donut puffs filled with pastry cream served with dark chocolate sauce) served with a candle on top for my birthday! We had a most enjoyable birthday luncheon that day!"

  • "We have dined at Morello's Bistro several times and it has always been very good. However, this time, while the food was very good, the service, from the greeting at the host station to our waitress was disappointing; slow and unfriendly. We did not feel very welcome."
