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.

Visited il moro again last night for the first time in a while, although not sure why it has taken so long to return. The place itself is smashing, full of ambience and charm, elegant but not over dressed. The food is just first class and the fixed price 3course is the epitome of value for money... read more

Having read mixed reviews went along with my sister and had the best lunch we've had in ages. Really impressed by the quality and taste of the food and choice. The staff were attentive, polite and professional. Will definitely return and wholeheartedly recommend.

my first visit to this place and it certainly won't be the last. The welcome, the ambience, the food and drink was excellent. We plonked ourselves near the entrance and whilst we we offered a table upstairs, we were more than suited. The staff were very attentive BUT not overly so and the bill wasn't silly either.

Have driven past this restaurant numerous times and decided to give it a try. I am so glad we did .....excellent meal, delicious flavours and good portion size. Wine and beer served chilled and excellent quality. Friendly and welcoming service. The Owners deserve to do well as made us very welcome and we will definitely return.

We love Italian food and this restaurant promised Sardinian cuisine which we thought would be a twist on Italian food but sadly it was just another Italian restaurant. It was a warm night and we hoped to eat on the terrace upstairs but this option was not even offered to us and we were placed downstairs in the middle of... More

So, a quick look at the most popular Italian restaurants in Stratford will show the dominance of the chains yet again. As the previous reviewer highlighted, most are to be avoided at all costs. That's not to say that all Italian independents are glorious either, far from it actually. It is extremely difficult to come across a decent one outside... More

We ate dinner here mid-week. The last time we visited Il Moro it was nestled away elsewhere in Stratford but its inauspicious location and almost quirky experience belied wonderful Italian cuisine. So were keen to see how its elevation to a much larger and premium location had affected its charm and importantly the food. The new location is considerably larger... More

We visited for lunch and enjoyed some amazing dishes. We were made very welcome and the dishes were expertly described to help us make our choices. I do love a crisp white linen napkin! After lunch we enjoyed a dessert and coffee on the roof terrace which was a real treat. Will we return? You bet we will!

it is a typical italian restaurant, with italian speaking service (of course they speak english to) but the food was a mix between typical italien and english, tomato mozzarella, with pesto and ham? pizza with prosciutto crudo means pizza with salami, don't now why this. but overall good.

I've driven passed this place many time as I go through Stratford and thought this place looked nice. My Wife commented that it has been quite a while since she has been to an Italian restaurant and it's a shame there is not one local to us. I remembered this place and decided we should go there and give it... More
