Morrettes was featured on the Travel Channel show "Food Paradise", so of course we had to try it out. The Capital Region has a ton of different places that deserve national recognition for their food. Morrettes, however, is not one of them.
I ordered a standard cheesesteak because that is what they are known for. Josie also got a steak sandwich, but hers was smaller and had gravy instead of cheese. Their menu had fries with cheese and bacon on them, so that was also a must have.
None of the food was all that exciting. The rolls on the cheesesteak were hard, almost stale. The steak itself had absolutely no seasoning, which wouldn't have been as much of a problem if either the cheese or the gravy had any real flavor. Bacon on the fries was overcooked, and they also suffered from the tasteless cheese.
Service was friendly, our waitress offered suggestions, and gave us everything we needed, but we couldn't get past the food that we had such high hopes for.
