So good!!

I came here for a friend's birthday dinner last night, and it was really good. I had arrived early with a birthday cake which they graciously held in the back for us as a surprise for the birthday girl.

Six girls in a new town looking for some good food. We stopped in and looked at the menu and the prices were extremely reasonable. Our waiter Nick was AMAZING! He knows how to serve his customers and ensure they have a good time. Everyone loved there food! There was no complaints and we have some picky people. Would come... More

We stumbled across this great restaurant, I was concerned I wouldn't find anything gluten free at an Italian restaurant but there were plenty of great options. My daughters both had pasta dishes (all of their pasta is made in house) which they said was some of the best they've had. There was a nice selection of non-American wines. A nice... More

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 the dressing was obviously drizzled from a bottle.... 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
