“Always good :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Moretti's continue to please and then disappear from sight in SW Fla.- teasing us mercilessly. This is their 3rd version of a local, mostly Italian restaurant but it never fails to please the palate. While the surroundings are somewhat generic, their fish soup remains unequaled and the veal marsala , tender and well sauced, not too heavy or too sweet. The owners are on site and hardworking people who strive to please. Open only 3 weeks, I would expect the experience to only get better as they refine their processes.
Good food, full tummy, and pleasant hosts equals good value. Locals should add this to the "must do" list.

“Hopes dashed......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

1st off, Moretti's is now located at 3100 Del Prado Blvd. in the Cape. It is in the same location as the former favorite Upper Crust pizza and Italian Grill. We were hoping for another great Italian and pizza grill but were disappointed with just about all. I will say that we visited during the very first week it opened so that may be one of the problems, you know, getting the kinks out and may even try it again in a couple of months.....if it survives. The good points are the portions and the staff very friendly, but the sauce was raw tasting with no seasoning what so ever, needing to be simmered longer I suppose and needs some taste other than raw tomatoes and the pasta was overdone. Prices are moderate and appropriate for the area.

“Best Italian Dinner in Cape Coral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Best Italian dish I had in a while. You got to try the lobster ravioli...it was so good that I am going back. Plus selecting them as my #1 Italian food in Cape Coral. We eat out a lot and this one stuck to mee. Pricing is great and vary reasonable. They did not have their credit card set up yet in Dec. 2012 since they had just opened on 3100 Del Prado Blvd. (located in Marlin Center - west side on Del Prado) call 239-542-3030. Just got their credit card machine set up in Jan.2014. Dinner for 2 with appetizer, salad, dinner and half karaf of wine was well under $80 which included the taxes. This Canadian gal is comming back and telling all her friends.

“They're Back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Moretti's is back in a different location, and we're excited it's close to home. They have opened at 3100 Del Prado Blvd South about 3 miles North of the old restaurant on Vincennes and SE 47th Terrace. My husband didn't see the Grouper sandwich on the menu, but no problem the owner said - it was just s good as before. I had a tasty Greek salad, which was gigantic. I would expect all of their food will be the same top quality as before.

“Solid Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Moretti's had good reviews overall, so we decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did. Really solid Italian food. We ordered Proscitto and Melon as a starter. The Chef sent out word that the Melons weren't ripe and suggested the Calamari Frita. Good choice, they were were lightly coated and tender. I had Spagetti Carbonnara, which my favorite Italian Comfort Food. It's a simple dish which is often poorly prepared. This one was perfect. The rest of the table had Veal Picatta, Veal with Green Peppers and Linguini al Grillo. Generous portions and each perfectly prepared, too. We had a friendly, very attentive waitress. A meal that exceeded our expectations.
