We have been going to Moretti's on our upstate trips since 1979 Over the years we have found the food & service to be consistantly good. Living in NYC, we appreciate being able to get good Italian food in a rural area. Up until 3 yearts ago, we had never tried their steaks,
which we found to be quite good. The atmosphere is not fancy, but comfortable.

This is my MOST favorite plan to dine on special occasions! When making your reservation for you and that someone special, request the Rose Room. VERY romantic, the filet is to DIE for, and the smooth vocal jazz in the background make for a most relaxing and enjoyable dinner.
The quality AND quantity will make you want to return!!

As restaurants in small towns go, it's probably ok. Maybe above average but everything's relative.

As better quality restaurants go, this one doesn't make it.

The food is bland and the staff is not willing to even hear special requests let alone accomodate them.

The people running the place must be tired of it because they don't go out of their way to make your dinner anything but something to eat. In fact, some on the staff are downright surly.

There's nothing illegal about that but when you are paying above average prices you really expect an above average experience.

If you are used to quality dining in places like New York and Boston, you will be very let down here.

If you generally eat at Bob's Diner every Friday, this may be a step up.

My Family and I were recomended to Moretti's by the Elmira Holiday Inn. We were told that Moretti's had the best steaks, so being steak lovers we thought we'd give it a try. We ordered one of each steak on the menu a Filet, Ribeye, New York Strip, and Pork Chops. Absolutely the most wonderful steaks and chops we ever had - Prepared to perfection-melt in your mouth. We will definately be visiting Moretti's next time we visit Elmira. I Wonder how one could have eaten one of these fabulous steaks and not be pleased.

My father and I have visited Elmira for many years to see the Wings of Eagles Airshow. A highlight of our trip has always been a dinner out at Moretti's.

Same thing every year: Filet mignon, salad with the famous house Rocquefort dressing, side order of pasta, and a cocktail to start off with, and a bottle of Chianti with dinner.

My steak was ordered medium - rare - rare, and it was perfect, even with the little pink flag stuck in it!

The best steakhouse anywhere. First rate!
A great place with exceptionally understated service.
We hope to come down to the area this summer!
