Tonight I was invited to join friends at Moretti's. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with very traditional Italian cuisine from another era...nothing wrong with that! I ordered veal marsala. The portions here are generous - the way it used to be. My veal was bathed in a rich sauce along with mushrooms accompanied by spaghetti in a luscious, velvety... More

I hate to submit bad reviews...and I've put this one off because I feel bad especially since this is a local restaurant and has always been known as one of "the" restaurants to go to for an outstanding meal and/or special occasions. Weeeelllll....not so much...The restaurant itself is very dim and cold (out dated comes to mind). I ordered the... More

We ordered pizza for the kids ahead of time since it takes longer than an ordinary meal, or so we thought. The pizza was ready soon after our arrival. We ordered our meals, spaghetti with meat sauce, and some salads. The kids were done with their salads and pizza and still no spaghetti. The server was doing her best but... More

We're lifelong Elmira residents and have eaten here sporadically over the past 50 years. It used to be one of our very favorites. Lately, not so much. Positives: The two options we chose for dessert were tasty Negatives: There's being frugal, and then there's downright cheap. - The tables are so crowded that you can barely squeeze in between yours...

I've dined here many times over more than three decades of working in Elmira and, while the filet (for which they're known) is pretty darned good (if you like your steak swimming in melted butter), the service is downright terrible, surly even. Don't bother making a reservation, if one of the restaurant owner's cronies walks in, you'll get shoved to... More

Nice family owned Elmira eatery! Great choices on the Italian / American menu. Great staff! Others rave about the filet here but I have to RAVE about the pork chops - they are the most delicious pieces of meat I have EVER had! Plan to either share with someone or take half home for lunch the next day - they... More

Food is alright, service is slow and not over friendly. Prices are high for average food and below average service. Used to come here often but now I think I've made my last trip there.

When we travel to Elmira to visit family we normally go to Moretti's for their fantastic Filet Mignon. It is by far the best EVER! The restaurant definitely needs updating but the food is just awesome.

Although under an Italian name, the food only barely resembles read Italian cuisine. Their spaghetti sauce is very strange.
