General Info
We began as Ristorante DiLullo when we opened our doors in May of 1979, under the guidance of renowned cookbook author Marcella Hazan. It was an opening like no other in Philadelphia. Joe DiLullo had envisioned a grand New York style Italian restaurant in Fox Chase, his hometown in northeast Philadelphia. People came from everywhere to experience the delicious Northern Italian fare and the crisp clean Milan look. Now called Moonstruck, this timeless restaurant continues to delight all its loyal customers with temptingly exquisite cuisine from Chef Donna Ewanciw and her talented staff. Hosts Toto Schiavone and Claire DiLullo invite you to experience Moonstruck and also to help you plan your upcoming special occasion.

Recently, we had a reservation for four people at 5:30 to celebrate a birthday that one of the others was hosting. The dinner was inedible for three of us. The 4th dinner appeared to be OK. The birthday girl ordered chicken tenders. When she tried to cut the chicken with the steak knife that had been provided before the meal appeared, the chicken was too tough to even be serrated by the steak knife. But the big thing I want to report is the Dinner Special of mahi mahi that two of us ordered. The mahi mahi looked mushy on the plate when it arrived. When I attempted to bring a fork full of the fish to my mouth, the fish odor was so disgusting and overwhelming. Nevertheless, I tried to eat it. But could not even force myself to swallow the foul smelling and fishy tasting mahi mahi.. I then proceeded to play with the food in my plate and not eat a morsel of it. Dinner for me then became bread and dessert. The other lady who ordered the mahi mahi asked for more putenesco sauce and drowned the fish with this which enabled her to force the fish down. I didn't say anything because the other lady attempted to eat the fish. I did not want to make a scene and embarrass our gracious hostess. The following day I asked the other diner who had the mahi mahi dinner if she enjoyed the fish. She said that it was foul and spent the whole next day sick from the fish. Fresh cooked fish does not look mushy nor smell and taste fishy.Fishy smell comes from bad/spoiled fish. I was lucky that I had not forced myself to eat it and also get sick.

The food is always first class and if you really want a treat ask for Altin to serve you-he is great. The manager Keith is very friendly and assists with everything. I love this place

Rude to Customers

My fiancee' and I booked this establishment for our rehearsal dinner because we knew the food was good and we were on a budget. When both myself and my mother called to get a price per head, we were quoted $28.50 per head. That was in our budget and we booked it. We were called by the owner, Toto, and he told us he would make it a very nice evening and he would take care of us. Unfortunately, we did not know what ""take care of us"" meant in his vocabulary. When we received our bill for that evening, it came to $2,234.00 We were in disbelief...why was the evening so expensive. When my fiancee called the next day to find out why the bill was so high, we were told by Toto that he decided to charge us $40.00 per head and $1,000.00 of the bill was for the bar tab alone!!! Not only did ever discuss with us if we wanted wine poured, he took it upon himself to serve wine, and pick expensive bottles of wine at that. We were shocked. My fiancee asked to please do they right thing and he called my fiancee a scumbag.

A hidden gem!

This restaurant is a gem in a neighborhood where one would not expect it to exist. We have been eating there for many many years and have never been disappointed. The food is northern Italian and quite sophisticated but not pretentious. The service is excellent. Toto, the owner is an old world gentleman.

Best Restaurant You Haven't Been To

Great value, supreme service and excellent cuisine. I went on a Saturday night and was amazed by the plethora of tastes and personality of my server! Will definitely be returning soon.
