Mazzarri, who helped Napoli qualify for the UEFA Champions League in the last two campaigns, was handed the Nerazzurri reins back in May following the sacking on Andrea Stramaccioni.
So far, he has enjoyed a perfect start to life at the Giuseppe Meazza after leading Inter to wins in their opening two games of the new Serie A season, and Moratti is confident he will prove to be the right man for the job in due course.
"We took Mazzarri as our new coach because he's a rock, our certainty," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "He's a strong personality and has everybody's backing.
"We could have taken someone else as well, who would perhaps have been a braver choice or more entertaining, but we wanted a coach who's modest, not afraid to learn new things and listens to other people.
"The coach has to listen to the players and other people around him. He should be able to transmit his ideas to the squad.
"What we liked about Mazzarri is that he works hard and has plenty of experience. He gave me the idea that he can be Inter's new point of reference."
Moratti also revealed that re-signing Samuel Eto'o was never on the agenda, but admits he would have loved to bring Kaka to the club, although the Brazilian ended up returning to their arch-rivals AC Milan.
"We never really talked much about potentially bringing back Eto'o," he added. "We did what we had to do this summer.
"My dream? I would have liked to sign Kaka in the closing hours of the [transfer] window."
The Nerazzuri did manage to sign a number of players over the summer, including Ishak Belfodil, Hugo Campagnaro, Marco Andreolli and Mauro Icardi.
