Old dump, super overpriced, incompetent and careless staff Close..........please. Do all your old customers a favor and let them remember the old times and the place as it once was......not what it has become.

Had our rehearsal dinner here and the food was terrible and everyone made comments! We haven't been back in the 4 years since our wedding. We were so unhappy with our food and the taste. Go to Lib's!

I've been going to morettis since I was 25 years old, I am now 67. The last time I went there before the 14th of November 2013, was maybe 5 years ago. Me and my wife had walked in to the restaurant, and was seated. One thing we noticed was everything looked the same as it did 40 years ago.... More

Always a home run here. Veal Parm & steak the best. Family run business. Hospitality here makes you feel right at home.

The food and service were quite good but that's where the plusses end! The decor is vintage 1950...drapes probably pre-date that. Chair was ripped with stuffing falling out. This old girl could use a good fluff and buff and then she could again raise her head proudly!

Another reviewer said nothing has changed in 40 years. Very true. The decor is dark and worn out. Two chairs at our table had ripped vinyl seats. Our waitress was very friendly and competent. We asked for their signature dish and she replied, "Steaks," but we had come for Italian food and ordered lasagna. Mistake. The food would have been... More

I love Moretti's food -- best steak around, although the prices have gone quite sky high. We went for an intimate wedding reception and they had forgotten to prepare the private room. Once seated our waitress was wonderful and attentive. Beyond that, the furniture, chairs, rugs, overall restaurant really is quite run down and dirty. The steak was still fabulous... More

I had read some reviews of Moretti's stating that it hasn't changed in forty years. I would say that is a plus. The area in which it is located is not great, but the food is very good and the service very friendly. I had a simple meal of spaghetti and sausage and the sauce was fabulous and the pasta... More

When we want a filet, we always go to Moretti's - great steaks made to order, priced a little high but worth it!

It's been awhile since I've been there, but Moretti's used to be one of the best eateries in the Twin Tiers. While they still serve a top-notch filet, their landmark Italian food had gone downhill. I'm wondering if it's under new ownership? Back in the early to mid-1990s, this was flat out the best Italian restaurant in Elmira, N.Y. They... More
