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.

Three of us visited after wanting to visit for some time. The food was overpriced and tepid. The tables are far too small for 3 people, the service was adequate but certainly not wonderful. It took some time to order and even longer to get the bill. Due to circumstances we unfortunately did not complain on the evening, we realise... More

2nd visit and just as great as lat time. We Really enjoyed all aspects of dinner, from the prosecco on the roof terrace to the fab food, the whole experience was excellent. Service was attentive but not overly intrusive. Taste of the food was awesome although of course you expect to pay for quality. Can't wait to visit again

Just had a lovely set menu lunch here. Generous proportions. Beautifully cooked food. I have walked passed this place so many times and not gone in, but I will certainly visit it again!

Visited Il Moro today and had a fantastic meal. Each course was excellent, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit. Great opportunity to try Italian / Sardinian food which isn't just the usual pasta and tomato sauce, lasagne etc.

Exceptional Service in a pleasing restaurant with a good ambience . Food was good but some dishes were not top flight. Great Sardinian wine! Beef Carpaccio to start was indeed excellent . Mains of Seafood Pasta perfectly acceptable . The Mushroom & Truffle Risotto lacked much truffle flavour and was rather watery . Cheeseboard was tiny! That said nothing was... More

Starters of pasta and walnut, and chicken livers...delicious and flavoursome. Main courses were the duck and the sea bream...both cooked to perfection. Sardinian wines were new to us, and very good. Service was friendly and all in all we had a lovely evening out.
