Situated in the heart of Stratford upon Avon, 70 yards from Shakespeare's birthplace and 5 minutes from the Theatres, Il Moro is a family run Italian restaurant with a twist. Chef/owner Massimiliano Melis, from the south of Sardinia believes in serving traditional, simple, home-made Italian cuisine but also enjoys the challenge of infusing flavours from his homeland into his dishes. All of our pasta, bread and desserts are hand-made in house, making Il Moro a little bit more than the average Italian restaurant.Within stylish and elegant surroundings, guests can enjoy a glass of prosecco at the bar before dining or weather permitting, a light bite on the roof terrace which affords stunning views across the rooftops of Stratford. Stepping into Il Moro is like stepping into another world - one that is steeped with tradition and has a real authentic feel but is at the same time contemporary and fresh in its approach to food and service.

Lovely meal had tonight, beautifully presented, the swordfish main course was possibly one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten. The restaurant is modern, clean and staff are very helpful and friendly. On a warm summers night they have a lovely roof terrace with plenty of seating which would be lovely to eat out on.

We came for lunch on a Travelzoo voucher, which the restaurant needed; I forgot it! No matter, I was told, and the manager did his utmost to make it right for us, finally taking a photograph from my phone (I emailed the real one through). Onto the food: the combination of flavours and the presentation made the meal a delight... More

Lunch for 4 on a travelzoo voucher - treated like kings! Wonderful service (some staff in training) - Food was delicious and lovely new venue they have. Well worth a visit for a special occasion - would like them to offer some mid-week deals so we can come back more often!! (Hint hint!) - Great place and would definitely recommend.

Il Moro's service was impeccable!!! Our waiter, Nicolas, was so attentive, but not to the point of being annoying. The food was excellent! My girlfriend ordered a chicken liver starter, thinking it was pate (doesn't like liver, unless it's pate) and she loved it!!! We both ordered from the Sardinian menu and were both well impressed!!!! The gnochetti is amazing!!!!... More

We decided to give Il Moro a second chance after a disappointing experience last year but sadly there has been no improvement, it's possibly a bit worse! Firstly, it was a busy Saturday night and they squeeze far too many people in - they don't seem to care about customer comfort, just bums on seats, and had clearly added a... More

Dear John, Thank you for your review dated 2nd April 2015. I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at Il Moro. Judging by your comments, your visit to our restaurant must have been more than 5 months ago as you refer to a 'foreign' girl' - we have had no female waitresses with us since November... More

This was our first visit to Il Moro at the new premises. Very modern and tasteful decor in a bright setting. Table settings sparkling and chairs surprisingly comfy. We chose different pasta starters one with Mediterranean shellfish, tomato & chilli sauce and the other with prawns, courgettes, chilli & garlic. They were both very tasty, the latter a little over... More
