Diner Reviews
  • "Having not been to this restaurant for a few years ,we were very pleasantly surprised. We ate outside which was very enjoyable. It was quiet, and nicely appointed with flowers and such. My salad was very fresh and tasty. My entree had spicy sausage and pasta. It was very tasty and plentiful. I brought about half home. The service was good and prices were reasonable. We plan to go again soon."

  • "I'm italian and would rather stay home and cook rather than eat at most Italian restaurants. Moretti's is an exception. The food is consistently excellent and the service always prompt and courteous. Highly recommend."

  • "Came here for restaurant week. The only thing I did not like was the couscous. It was very bland and tasted a little bit like cardboard."

  • "Sorry to say, my last couple of experiences at Moretti's have been pretty ordinary. They have done a good job of remodeling, but as we sat at a table in the bar, the noise was unrelenting and the table itself was so narrow that three of us were crowded. We each had a small plate, only one of which was small. The servings are generally enormous which can be off-putting. The chicken dish, basically with tomatoes and pasta, was so dry that I hoped to get a side of marinara, but our server never checked on us so I was rescued by my friend's bolognese sauce. There is nothing better than good Italian crusty bread, but Moretti's serves a bland, soft loaf. I would put this restaurant at the lower end of a ranking of Columbus Italian eateries. T"

  • "Took my in-law's from out of town for some Italian and were not disappointed. The food was great and we had a winderful low-kay dinner. Monday night so not crowded, wish it was a nicer day to use the patio. The only downfall is the kitch was out of veal... boo... but i understand things happen. Will just have to try again next time!"

  • "I went the first time for dinner using a Groupon. I was pleased to find they had gluten free pizza and pasta options. The food was very good, but the ambiance was a little close and noisy. The table was pretty large, so I had a hard time hearing the person I was with, along with a good deal of background noise and the people at the table next to us being closer than I would've liked. I would go back if I were in the neighborhood again, but would not go out of my way."

  • "We like to dine at Moretti's because we live in the neighborhood. The last few times the service has been off, starting at the hostess table where we were not greeted and continuing thru meal. On a Friday night you'd think they'd be staffed for a crowd, but with the restaurant only half full, we waited extraordinarily long and then our salads came out without dressing. The server said the kitchen was overwhelmed. The bartender must have been overwhelmed too, because our second round of cocktails were not the same as what we ordered. I will give it another try, but it is moving to the bottom of our list."

  • "Our meal at Moretti's of Arlington was very good. Three of us got pizza's and one got pasta. All the pizza's were very tasty and the pasta was very good also. The service was excellent. Our only complaint was the noise. There were many open tables available but we were seated right next to a family with kids. The kids were very loud. I know kids will be loud but we could have been seated away from them very easy. Overall though it was very good and we will return."

  • "We have been going to the UA Motetti's for years. The improvements in decor/ambiance appreciated - it is not fancy but it is pleasant. The people are friendly but there were 3 mistakes in one meal for our table of 6 - resulted in a 10 minute saving delay for one of our party - always awkward, but everyone shared a little while he waited - easy to do because the portions are generally large. I'd rate it good v. fair but spaghetti and a salad and a glass of wine with a tip is $70 for 2 - it's just the way it is today, but I feel the need to be more critical increases along with the fare. We'll go back - I just hope they keep refining things as they always have"

  • "I made my reservation at Moretti's (through Open Table, of course!) because I had an Amazon coupon for it. I noted on my reservation that we had theater tickets and had to be in and out in 90 minutes. We were seated immediately, service was prompt and friendly, the server knew all about the parameters of the Amazon coupon, and the food was spectacular! My wife and I both had the cheese ravioli, which was so perfect to my palate that I longed for more a few hours later. Our guests both had eggplant Parmesan, and raved about it, as well. And, yes, we were in and out in plenty of time for the theater. A special meal and a wonderful experience."

  • "We ordered the calamari as our appetizer. The breading was bland, wasn't served with marinara or a lemon edge like calamari should be. Bread was kind of hard. I ordered the cheese ravioli and the beef and truffle. I thought the cheese ravioli was way too sweet and the sauce was very bland. The truffle and beef was good, but very very hearty, almost too much. The server did not pre buss our table, and we clearly had a pile of dishes sitting at the side of our table waiting to be taken away. Ordered a cheese cake as a dessert it was good, the bottom crust a little too hard to chew. I am not sure if I would come back again if I'd have to pay the full price of food. Too expensive and not enough flavor too bland for the price."

  • "Our party of 3 dined at Moretti's this even and came away disappointed. Service was iffy, food was not that great. Most of the items on the menu are *heavy* - lots of cream sauce, cheese, etc., that may serve to mask flavorless cooking. All of the chicken seems to be breaded as well. We felt it was several notches below Bravo! (local chain) for example. Will not be back even though this is 5 minutes from our house, which is too bad."

  • "I love Italian food and switching to a gluten-free diet meant that I had a period of mourning over all the lovely things I was renouncing. Moretti's doesn't fully solve that problem, but it goes a fair way. They feature one gluten-free pasta a night that can be substituted into dishes already on the menu. They also offer a gluten-free pizza dough. I opted for the pizza and was not disappointed. The crust was good--maybe not exactly like regular dough, but good enough that if they'd told me this was their specialty crust, I'd have not complained at all. And I loved the toppings--I got the Trevi Fountain. The sweet potato fries we got for an appetizer were perfect."

  • "We had family coming in from out of town and were looking for a place we could count on for good food and selection. We weren't disappointed. We had to wait a while to get seated even with reservations but once we got to our table the experience was great. Our guests ordered the Red Snapper piccata and loved it. My husband ordered the Sausage Ziti and was planning to eat half and take the rest home. He couldn't stop eating it because it was so delicious and finished the ample dish. I am gluten free and was able to order the Chicken Parmisan with Gluten free pasta. I LOVE Maretti's red sauce--just a tad spicy but not hot. Delicious! Everyone enjoyed their meal, the excellent service, and the ambiance. The wine list had some nice wines, too."

  • "We had a reservation that we made 6 days in advance of our night to be at Moretti's. This was our favorite restaurant. Every time we go we try to take people that have not been. This was the case this time. We were put at the back of the restaurant next to a VERY long table that was filled with VERY loud people. Actually we had to yell to one another after they were seated. Be aware that they have changed the seating and now there is a chair/booth arrangement down the middle of the main dining area. It acts as a channel for sound if you are unfortunate enough to sit at one of the tables in the back of the restaurant. The noise used to be tolerable but this arrangement just takes it over the top."

  • "My husband and I visited Morettis with our teenage daughter. Reservation was 8:20 - weren't seated until 9pm. Once seated, the bartender was our server - he was nice and polite, but did not have enough time to be attentive to anyone. He should not have to tend the bar and wait tables. Food was fantastic, and reasonably priced. I had the Shrimp & Sausage alla vodka; hubby had chicken parm; and daughter had the chicken marsala. We also had the appetizer meatball - the meatball was WAY better than Marcella's and all three entrees were wonderful. We will definitely return."

  • "We love to go to Moretti's. Their veal is outstanding and their wait staff is very friendly! Among our favorites are the Italian Wedding Soup, Veal Parmigiana and, my favorite, Veal Francaise. The Veal Francaise used to be a standard menu item, but was removed. However, they still can make it - just ask for it. The lemon cream sauce of the Veal Francaise is pure heaven."
