“A Good Restaurant In An Average Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

During our recent visit to Rome and being Marriott Gold Members we decided to try out the Moscati Ristorante & Wine Bar inside the Marriott Central park Hotel. While staying at the Marriott surprised us with all of its issues, this restaurant is fortunately not one of them.

Ambiance - Moscati is located inside the Marriott Hotel, directly to the left of the front revolving doors as you enter. The atmosphere is European chic with beautiful subdued lighting and a romantic setting. Tables are well appointed and nicely spaced throughout and surrounding the bar. There is also dining al fresco on a nice patio. The restaurant can accommodate couples to a large family or group of friends.

Service - Service in any Marriott Hotel comes with an expectation of top tier service and the staff at Moscati won't let you down. Servers were helpful and attentive. Food was ordered and served without mistakes in all of the meals we had here.

Food - The diverse menu features mostly Italian dishes with pasta specialties. Several dishes we ordered: pasta with clams, pasta with mussels, pasta carbonera, salads, vegetable soup were all properly prepared, had nice presentations and were tasty. In the morning the restaurant serves a buffet breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausages, an assortment of sliced meats, cereals, fruits, pastries and juices, along with various teas and coffees for $14 Euro.
Some hotel stays include the buffet breakfast.

Costs and Value - The menu prices at Moscati are from a bit above average to expensive depending upon what is ordered. Expect to pay more for food than elsewhere because it is a Marriott property. However, we found that the cost to value ratio was appropriate.

Summary - Moscati's food preparation and taste is very good. Service very good. Cost above average to slightly expensive. A romantic atmosphere at night. A good place for a drink and to spend a late evening out. Bon apetite! Ciao.

“Good food without the tourist traps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

The atmosphere in this hotel restaurant is very clean and pleasant, with good views over the city of Rome, including St Peters. Service is attentive but not overly intrusive and the menu extends beyond the range of usual tourist expectations although there is a good range of Roman Specialties Food is fresh and well prepared. Prices are what you would expect in a hotel, but they are not all that different from the tourist trap trattorias whose food and cleanliness are not necessarily so good.

“Food Satisfying”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Pasta for Aglio Olio was a little too al dente for my taste. Portions were just enough. No complaints about the presentation.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

I had dinner as well as breakfast buffet in this restaurant during my recent stay at the hotel. Service was hit and miss overall. In spite of carefully explaining my choice of main course and after a wait of almost an hour ( something very unusual for Italian restaurants), I was utterly disappointed to see them bring something totally different. When I pointed out that it was not what I ordered, she realised her mistake and told me she could get the one I ordered but I was literally in no mood to wait another hour.
Breakfast was buffet style with limited hot options for anyone who is a vegetarian or non pork eater
