Wonderful Food and Service!

Looking for something different (and wanting to sit outside) we chose Moscato's. Our server Chris was pleasant and someone you can tell enjoys his job and goes the extra mile. We started off with the baked calamari. Not a huge serving but cooked wonderfully. The Caesar salad was crisp and fresh but... read more

My wife and I have followed Moscatos through all three of its locations. The last one on Central Avenue was mediocre at best. However, the new and larger down the street is superb. We walked in around 5:45 pm on a Wednesday and we're seated right away. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Wine selections by the glass were good... More

Eating at Moscato's was an odd experience to say the least. We went early on a Friday night recently and the restaurant was at best 20% full. The hostess (whom I think is the owner) really had an attitude that night. She proceeded to seat us at a 2 person booth and I asked if we could sit at a... More

We were seated 55 minutes later than our reservation time and upon being seated were informed that the restaurant was out of shrimp, veal, and bread. (yes, BREAD.). Appetizers came out quickly and were tasty. Entrees came out one at a time over the course of 15 minutes, so several of us sat waiting with a plate of food in... More

Been several times, but recently for New Years Eve, so tasty, and my Dad is from Italy. So fresh, made to order, finest quality too. They also will serve Gluten Free pasta for any dish upon request. They just started a new fantastic pastry chef, desert was amazing....don't skip. Service was great, not at all slow for such a busy... More

I've read some disheartening reviews of this restaurant but my experiences have always been truly wonderful. I can't find enough superlatives to describe what I've eaten. The Tuscan style chicken with angel hair pasta is indescribably delicious. The ambience is terrific, the seating quite comfortable and well spaced. It's a lovely restaurant. The servers were always polite and well informed.... More

We went New Years Eve, sat a table for ten minutes and not one server greeted . It wasn't busy and they had plenty of servers.

We watched this place as it was completed over time, hoping for a good Italian restaurant in St. Pete---we got just OK. The décor and design are wonderful. However, the food was just OK. The menu was fine, but the food lacked good Italian flavor. The Bolognese sauce was thin and not very good in flavor. The Italian sausage had... More

Last night my husband and I returned to this restaurant which I have reviewed several times. An abrupt woman walked up to us and said, didn't ask, "Reservation or a walk-in" as she looked at the people walking in behind us. I laughed and said "well, we walked-in and no reservation so I guess we're walk-ins." I was caught off... More
