“More than pizza”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The pizzas are creative and excellent for lunch or dinner, but also are the entrees, including Italian and fish, plus short rib, lamb sirloin, and other bistro type dishes, all well prepared. Decent wine list and not too expensive. A popular place for good reason.

“We Really Wanted to Like This Restaurant”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

I had dinner here last night. I really, really wanted to like the restaurant, but a number of things conspired against it. We were seated promptly, even without a reservation and were quickly given menus and drinks ..... but it took more than 30 minutes to get our entrees (we didn't order a starter), this despite both of us ordering the specials, which you would think would be readily available. Our waiter was very apologetic and brought me another glass of wine on the house .... but the fact is the restaurant is very, very understaffed. When the food did arrive, the grouper was very good, the lamb was average. Another problem is the restaurant has bad acoustics and is very, very noisy. This is only exacerbated by howling children, who were in the restaurant last night. These problems are only likely to get worse as the Cape Cod season gets into full swing. We won't be returning here.

“Loved it as Ardeo's”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Ardeo's was one of our favorite restaurants in past summers - great food and pizza and a very congenial staff. We were surprised last fall by the change to Morelli's but had dinner there a couple of times. It seems to be as popular as ever with the locals and the food was good. Not as many choices as before, but the roasted chicken entre is great - I had it both times. It is a friendly and low key place to go for a nice quiet dinner while on vacation.

Family friendly atmosphere with outstanding food and service. We've been there several times and have never had to wait long for a table. I can't wait to go back !

“Holiday Parties”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

I booked our company party at Morelli's after having numerous visit throught this season. The appetizers will be some my favorites PBR Mussells, Antipasto Kabobs, and of course Baked Oysters Florentine and Spinach Dip and the staff ask for the Raw Bar. We will have a few different pasta entrees, Rigtoni DiStrutto, Eggplant Rollantini, and Morelli's Traditional Parmigiana. I am getting hungry just thinking about this buffet. Salad and Desserts still be deciding. Guess we must go back and have dinner again to decide.
