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.

As ever the food and service at this new venue was of a high quality. Strudel was very refreshing. What was a shame was the waiters rather terse announcement at the end of the meal that the loyalty scheme Il Moro had operated for some time had been terminated without notice to card holders - not good form as regards...

After reading the reviews I was somewhat apprehensive about dining here. I considered suggesting somewhere else but the girls had already booked the table so I went along with it. We were warmly greeted and taken to our table, started with lovely drinks and an explanation of the specials menu. Throughout our meal several members of staff and the owners... More

I was really looking forward to a Valentines meal at Il Moro. My Husband had requested a corner table as he has trouble with his hearing so we need to be able to communicate, however, when we arrived the place was packed and blatantly extra tables had been put out and all quite close together. We were shown to a... More

We had a couple of meals at their previous, tiny, restaurant, and were thrilled to see they had moved to a splendid new and larger location. Massimiliano's Sardinian cuisine is magnificent, and the family's welcome is outstanding. Try the Sardinian wine too! Actually we are off there again today for lunch before a matinée at the RSC ...

This is only my second visit since Il Moro moved premises, I was worried that being a bigger property, with more seating and inevitably more staff, the food would not be of the same quality and the staff not as attentive. I'm glad to be proven wrong. Service was good, the food great. We will return.

Concerned after reading the very mixed reviews but enjoyed a good dinner here. Food is above the usual Italian resto standards with some interesting twists from the Sardinian influence/chef. Impressed with my seared Tuna and some different wines on the list which the owner(/) will talk through with customers. There is a buzz about the place and we will return.

We went to Il Moro with friends on an evening in January. The menu and food was average but the service was outstanding, all the staff were very friendly and efficient. Unfortunately it was very cold in the restaurant, our coats had been hung up but we got them back before we had puddings. Great ambience with lots of laughter... More
