My friend and I dined at the Moretti’s in Lake in the Hills on Saturday 10/26. We arrived to find the parking lot full and were concerned that we would have along wait. The hostess told us our wait would be 10-15 minutes and she was “right on” as we were seated within 15 minutes of our arrival. The atmosphere of the bar and restaurant was upbeat and energetic. Our server was efficient and attentive. After reviewing the large menu and specials menu, we decided on the Chicken Vesuvio and one of the nightly specials. The Chicken Vesuvio was good and but the Special Seafood Linguini dish was FANTASTIC! It was topped with lobster, muscles, calamari and shrimp. It had great flavor and wad quite spicy. It was a bit pricey at $16.99 but worth it for the unique flavor. Unfortunately only warm bread and butter are included with the entrees, a side salads would have been $2.50 each. We would return to Moretti’s for the large menu and the great atmosphere.

Moretti's is a pleasant restaurant, whose service and food seems to improve every time we go there. Years ago it replaced my favorite restaurant (Govern'rs) on the site and seems to have finally established its own niche. Portions are commiserate with costs; and our favorites are the Broasted Chicken and Italian Entree Trio. Hamburgers and pizza vary in consistency-at times they are delicious, the next time, too salty or lacking flavor. Moretti's offers wonderful deals on Wednesdays and Sundays and its a great place to take your family. We also like dining outside on their umbrella tabled deck. (The pond the deck overlooks seems to be in the process of being cleaned up). One suggestion: have more mature staff greet and seat you...The bar can be noisy., especially on sports games nights but being seated in the restaurant overcomes that.

Moretti's has great food-great burgers, great pasta, great pizza, and my favorite dish ever-parmesan encrusted chicken with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. What they don't have is great service. Ate in the bar once-server was beyond rude. Usually eat in the dining room-wait too long for the first drink and even longer for the second. Here's a clue-keep the drinks flowing and your tip will increase incrementally. It's not rocket science-be attentive to your customers, get the bread out, get the drinks out, and get the food out in a timely manner. One of my favorite restaurants in the area because I really do love their food but I am so sick of crappy service.

Our bad service started at the hostess stand when we walked in. With three of us standing there, and my arm on the stand the hostess returned and proceeded to ask those behind us "how many in your party". Those behind us were a little shocked, but followed her. She never acknowledged us initially until I spoke up.
The food server wasn't any better, no personality, not helpful, and not knowledgeable about the menu.
Food was good. Too bad, there are a lot of places to chose from and this one isn't one of them.
