Had lunch there this week and was very disappointed. The soap was lukewarm and the pasta was mushy. My wife had a salad with steak. Steak was cook perfect. The rest was a joke. Canned oranges and old strawberries. The dressing was poor in texture and flavor. The lettuce was not mixed greens but just romaine lettuce I had the... More

We both ordered a glass of house wine and commented on how nice and cold it was. For appetizer we ordered grandfathers pizza well... More

I went to dinner here this Saturday, June 28th and it was such a great experience. My family and I came in a little bit late, close to 9 and it was very busy. They also had some music going on downstairs. I had the veal picata with house-made fettucini it was so delicious I wanted to lick my plate.... More

Went to Bella Cucina with 8 friends looking for some dinner to round out our day in St. Pete. We all ordered and it took the better part of an hour to receive our dinner meals. When we inquired about the delay, a person who appeared to be a manager, although he didn't identify himself as one (he could have... More

I wanted to treat my daughter to a nice place to have lunch downtown. I told her about Moscatos new location so we stopped. I loved the Tuscan décor, very spacious with high ceilings, exposed brick and bright cheery tablecloth's. I ordered the special of the day Mai-Mai wrap with smoked gouda and spinach, it came with a small salad... More

Had an enjoyable, energetic server (Ashley). She explained the dishes and offered interesting suggestions. All members of our party of 6 had very good meals at a very fair price. Love down town St. Pete dining!

Once again here I am again being critical. Born and raised in St Louis where we have 1000s of excellant resturant's. I visited Moscatos in St Pete. Excellant food rating high on my list. We still have only a handful of excellant St Pete resturants. I hope before I die I can count at least 5. At present I am... More

I live in Tampa now and I have been hearing so much about this place. A friend invited me to go there this past Friday and I am so happy that I made the trip over the bridge. We ate dinner in this beautifully decorated restaurant and enjoyed some of the best Italian food I have had in a long... More

I have tried every Italian restaurant in Saint Pete and Moscatos is definitely the best one of them all! I loved their old space and love their new space even more. We went this past Friday and the place was jammed packed. Even with the place being so busy we were treated very well by the staff. Our server was... More
