Description: 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.

We saw this place on our way from our hotel into town and it looked nice so we reserved a table that afternoon as it was a Saturday. Would recommend booking a table as it does get busy. The service is exceptional and the atmosphere just right. The food was lovely. I had the lamb and I would definitely recommend... More

We visited Stratford for the weekend. We were staying in the riverside premier inn. This restaurant was a short walk away from our hotel which was perfect. We booked durning the day to ensure we could get a table. We arrived later that Eve and our table wasn't quite ready, we were shown to a separate seating area where the... More

Went along on the spur of the moment, as remembered the place when it was on Greenhill Street but had not eaten there before, and did not rue our decision. Although we were the only customers in at first, it being very late afternoon/early evening, by the time we came to leave it was probably 3/4 full. The 'Anatra al... More

We visited before Christmas and had lovely service, great wine knowledge and overall great night, unfortunately my wife was ill in the night, I would normally blame the alcohol but as she was the dessi driver it had to be the food. She says it was the fish special that made her ill? You know what it is when your... More

There are many options for Italian food in Stratford-Upon-Avon and we have tried many but this was by far the best. The new location is charming and modern but the food hasn't changed. An interesting and tasty menu, including tasty pastas and wine. The night we were there was busy with many Christmas parties happening so service was a bit... More

We went to Il moro yesterday evening and to be honest didn't know what to expect after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, some of which weren't particularly flattering. Our experience was very good, there were four of us in our party, we arrived at the booked time and were shown to our table immediately, the service was... More

At 8.00pm on a Monday I got a phone line that sounded as though it had been routed 3 times around the globe to arrive at an answering machine to a recorded voice that was difficult to comprehend. 3 hours later there is still no call back to my request to arrange a booking. This isn’t difficult. If they cannot... More

A friend and I stumbled across Il Moro and enjoyed a fantastic evening. The service was fun and relaxed and the food very enjoyable. It feels like the family run restaurant that it is and that the owners really care. The downstairs area was full with a couple of large parties which added to the atmosphere and evening. Next time...
