Moonstruck has it all - elegance, delicious food, excellent service. It is quiet enough for even the hearing impaired to talk comfortably with their table mates. Delightful.

This place is outstanding. It was recommended by a family member who once worked nearby. I was amazed. It is out of the way, in a neighborhood on the fringe of Philadelphia. The food superb, the atmosphere is old world, and it feels like you are being entertained in an Italian family home. I have been there 7 times, and I live 50 miles away.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. I had the cod. The spinach was gritty, which ruins the meal. I will try again to see if it improves.

Have dined here quite often and have always felt like family. Koe, our waiter, was outstanding.
We celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary here and could not think of a more pleasant place
to be.

We were sent a $20 coupon (off of the value of an entree) for my mother's birthday so decided to take advantage of it. Everything was delicious and we always like the atmosphere. She didn't want anything for dessert but it was nice they brought out a plate with a lit candle and 2 biscotti when they served her coffee, which was very much appreciated by all of us. A very nice evening!

Moonstruck is a favorite for a great night out. The owner Toto is creative with the food and the appetizers & entrees are uniformly excellent and delicious. The service is attentive and the ambience wonderfully relaxed and not too noisy. The wine pours are generous and I always leave feeling I get great value and a wonderful experience for my money.

Great food, wine and service per usual. I made the reservation, without saying it was a special occasion. As soon as we checked in, I was wished a Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary. Obviously, they have connected names/contact information from Open Table with their data base of frequent customers. What a nice way to be greeted on arrival.

We were celebrating a birthday. It was very nice because the Msitre D made sure he asked the name because they sang Happy Birthday and included the name. Our server was attentive. The busboy filled the water glasses whenever they were getting low. The owner Tito made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The food was Delicious and hot when it came from the kitchen. The desserts were delicious too. I definitely recommend Moonstruck. 😃

Always consistent and always good food. Great interior, quiet during the weekdays. By far the best gnocchi in town, truly amazing. Every day they offer three course fixed fare for $35. This is a great value and more people need to know about it. Far better than any place you can eat for the money.

We have been here many times before, dating back to when it was DiLullo’s and never disappointed. This time I made a reservation for dinner, indicating the occasion as birthday (my wife’s 70th). The experience was disappointing. The food was excellent as always. But when we arrived we waited a full 10 minutes before being acknowledged and then led to our table. Then we waited another 10-12 minutes before our server arrived. The server was wonderful, polite and very helpful. But then in the end there was no acknowledgement of a birthday. In past visits, if we did not chose to order dessert, someone would arrive with a sliver of cake and a candle for a birthday wish-not this time.

Enjoyed the atmosphere, and service. Dining companions enjoyed food but my "special" that evening was disappointing, very bland. Always feel special when dining here and usually food is tasty. Will go back because enjoy the ambience and generally enjoy the entree selections

Moonstruck is truly a neighborhood gem. You might not guess from the street side that the restaurant offers delicious food in an upscale but comfortable setting, reminiscent of a classy restaurant in Europe.
Service was friendly and competent. Any special requests were handled easily. My husband and I had an excellent experience recently on a Friday night.
Moonstruck was perhaps my mother's favorite restaurant when she lived in the area. We returned to Philadelphia last weekend for the sad occasion of her funeral. Moonstruck provided the lunch for over 20 people after the service- all ages and backgrounds- as part of their event service. Everything was wonderful and skillfully done. Thank you!

We went for our anniversary and like the quiet candlelight ambience. I always order liver and onions and my husband had the tenderloin. He said it was very good and done perfectly.
I like to get there early and have a drink at the bar, very cool!!

Waitress was a bit annoying. She kept rushing us to order, and kept calling me darling. Other than that, dinner was delicious .
