Description: Moretti Ristorante Pizzeria first opened its doors in 1997, when Ilario Ventolini set about creating an Italian restaurant specialising in the simple but flavourful foods renowned throughout central Italy. Since then, Moretti's has become a favourite with Sydney's Italian community and lovers of Italian food alike.

A wonderful experience with pizza Italian style. We arrived without a booking on a rainy night and were happy to be given a table despite them being fully booked although we were given a time limit. The staff were attentive without being pushy and did not rush us to finish. The food was delicious. The pizza was cooked in a pizza oven and the emphasis was on the bread which was not overloaded with toppings like commercial pizzas. The desert menu is extensive but we couldn't go past the tiramisu. Overall it is at the top end of what you would pay for a pizzeria but you don't mind this when you get quality.

Ok. Been going to the old moretti for ~15 years, and it was great.

The current rendition is ............in the door, and then ...........out the door, ...........asap. Turnover is the order of the day - not for the patron but for the profit.

Seated in a corridor, negroni aperitif was served with the wine (really), meal about six minutes after we ordered (still contemplating the negroni), an overly busy space, no room between tables, staff polite but inattentive - paid $120 for two mains and one side order and an ordinary experience. The Flathead fish batter was overly oily, side was okay, chips on, bread too soft - too Anglo - will not go again - i suggest you do not reward their haste with your cash!!!

Not a place to enjoy.

The place always seems to be full, so we decided to go there for my sister's birthday. Food is really quite mediocre to be honest, just really big portions. Haven't tried the pizzas, but pastas and starters were both a disappointment, specially for quite expensive prices. Wouldn't go again.

I have been here a few times over the last two years as it's close to where my son lives.
The food is always OK - I think the pizzas are quite good but the other Italian food is not always so good. For example on the last visit I had ravioli which was OK but not really delicious as it can be.
I would say the restaurant would be good by UK standards ( where I live ) but by Sydney standards ( which I always find very high ) it's only average.

First time to this restaurant and we were impressed. The food is really good and I especially loved the pizzas. A good selection of drinks and there is a good ambiance about the place. Well worth a visit.
