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.

This restaurant shows how you can get authentic Italian food with a Sardinian influence in the middle of England. The restaurant has recently moved into these new premises and you can park just down the street in a multi level car park. The wine list features wines from Sardinia as well as other regions. Similarly, the food menu has Sardinian... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time and was so very pleasantly surprised. We were met by very friendly staff and their knowledge of the wine list and menu was first rate, something that lacks in very many restaurants nowadays. The food was very fresh, hot and delicious. I can recommend the calves livers as a starter. We will... More

We found this restaurant by accident when visiting Stratford, and we were attracted by the clean, bright interior and the selection of meals on the menu. We were visiting at lunchtime and the lunch was delicious. The staff were great too (friendly and helpful). We would definitely visit again.

This was our third visit to Il Moro and we were a little cautious when our friends suggested it because we did not have a very good experience last time when they did not have our booking and then the food wasn't great. Guess what, the same thing happened again. They had our booking this time but completely refused to... More

Dear Mike H, Thank you for your review. First of all may I say what a relief it is to hear that you will never be coming to our restaurant again. Never before in my life have I been spoken to with such venom and condescension by a person who clearly relishes making other people feel uncomfortable. First of all,... More

My family of three ate here yesterday evening. My husband had a seafood pizza and my daughter opted for a Margherita pizza which they both enjoyed. I had the pan fried sea bream with olive, caper and lemon. This was very disappointing. The olives overwhelmed any flavour of the fish or any other ingredients and were piled all over the... More

Having read good reviews about this restaurant we decided to give it a try on a recent short visit to Stratford. The lunch menu was available up until 7pm after which it appeared to be the same menu but £5 more. We ate at 5.30 on Friday 29th May. The food was tasty and well presented but we found the... More

We celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary in Stratford and were fortunate to choose this restaurant for our evening meal. From start to finish everything was perfect. We shared a starter, followed by Duck with figs in red wine, and finished with the heavenly chocolate dessert. The food was superb and whetted our appetite for our Italian holiday in the middle...
