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.

Brilliant!!!!

Il Moro's service was impeccable!!! Our waiter, Nicolas, was so attentive, but not to the point of being annoying. The food was excellent!

Me and my partner visited here tonight for an evening meal and it was absolutely lovely. The manager Massimo made us feel very welcome. All the staff knew everything about the menu and answered every question we had in depth (a lot). Our waitor was called Nicolas and was so pleasant and helpful. We ordered veg along with our mains...

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

Walk the extra few yards beyond Shakespeare's birthplace and turn right to find this Sardinian / Italian restaurant. This was our first visit. Food is great with some interesting specials. I had squid ink rissotto (superb) and Jan had sea bream(delicious). Staff were attentive and efficient. Good menu & great food.Worth finding.

I recently visited this restaurant on Wednesday 4th March. The menu was very selective, but the quality was satisfactory. I was extremely disappointed with the level of service as the waiter staff were consistently at the table. Had they given us time to enjoy the meal without too many interruptions then the meal would have been more enjoyable.

This was our first trip to Il Moro and we were looking forward to it says we have heard good things and we love Italian food. Sadly, it was just a bit disappointing, choice was limited and consisted one of a laminated menu with a couple of specials. My lamb was pretty small and overcooked, tiramisu dessert was strangely lacking... More
