  • "My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday. The food and drinks are fabulous and our server was very good. We will definitely be back! "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The food was excellent, but it was a little pricey for a family italian restaurant. Additionally, they did not have a great wine menu and they were "out" of the only one in the category I wanted. Disappointing for my night out...but the food was good."

  • "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."

  • "We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. They were unfortunately out of the arancini but our replacement choices were delicious (bruschetta & steamed mussels). The entrees that we had were fabulous (homemade ravioli & veal Moretti specifically). Our server was not very warm throughout our time there but the manager who stopped by to check on us was friendly. I would still return because the food was fabulous - maybe the front of house was just having an off-night. They also brought out a desert for the birthday, which was a nice touch."

  • "This place was great! The food was delicous and the service was excellent. The only reason why i didnt give it 5 stars was because we had a reservation and still had to wait about 15 minutes. Not only that but about 6 other groups came in with a reservation as well and had to wait 15-20 minutes too, i felt like they were unprepared for their reservations"

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant. We had 7 in our party that included 2 children and 1 teenager. They had a good menu for Kids, our teenager loved his dinner and he is a fussy eater. The waitress was very good with the children. It is a good little restaurant in Upper Arlington."

  • "Who would have thought you could find such a great little Italian restaurant in a strip mall! The restaurant itself is so cozy and inviting and the food was amazing! My Mom and I both started with Caesar salads which were so flavorful. I had the gnocchi and my Mom had the sausage lasagna for our main courses. Everything was perfectly cooked. Also, we had one of the friendliest waiters that I've had in a really long time. His name was Jack and he was so nice and engaging. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a waiter. You could tell he really took pride in his job."

  • "Great food, as always. There must have been a school dance because the place was packed with teenagers in dress up clothes, so the service was a wee bit slower than usual, but we love the place and will definitely go back."

Our waiter was courteous, helpful, and attentive. The service was timely but not rushed even on New Year's Eve! Great wine selection, and food was prepared as requested and was very good."

  • "Moretti's Arlington is one of the best Italian restaurants that you'll find. The owner prepares all the sauces, pastas and breads himself on a daily basis, and the quality shows in every dish they offer. The bar selection is great and they rotate several different craft beers through the taps. The Wine List is second to none and shows a great deal of knowledge and imagination. You'll be able to find just the right wine to go with the great meal you're about to experience. Service? The wait staff is fantastic; professional and happy to be there. Also, DO NOT miss the Cheesecakes! Melt in you mouth creamy goodness made fresh on site by Jami. Lastly, if we're too busy for a meal out, we'll do carry out. Always ready hot and when we get there."

Since then we have been back for birthdays, date- nights, etc. We love the intimacy of this place, and although it's about 25 minutes out of our way, we always make it a point to visit it regularly."

  • "I had a crab cake and the fettuccine alfredo small plate. The crab cake tasted very good but it could have been a bit firmer. The noodles were excellent and I even had leftovers, so the small plates are not really that small. The noodles were unlike any I have ever have before (and I live on pasta). They are thicker than most fettuccine noodles and have taste! You can tell they are homemade."

  • "We decided to give this Moretti's location a try because we love the Moretti's on Sawmill. The food at the Arlington location is completely different than Sawmill Sawmill has the best salad I've ever eaten and Arlington's was just lettuce without enough dressing. The chicken Moretti on Sawmill is the best thing I've ever eaten and I always have enough to take home for the next meal. The Arlington location didn't even have enough pasta to satisfy my craving during dinner, let alone for leftovers. Long story short, go to Sawmill!"
