A throwback to the '60s in both menu and decor. We visited the Saturday before Mother's Day, no reservations for groups under 6, every table full. Many extended families. The food was "ok". I ordered veal oscar. The veal was lovely but the "oscar" was obviously from a can and tasted tinny. Lots of sauce and presentation was "Mom in... More

We went with another couple that were so excited to have us take the 1 hour drive from Ohio to the this suburban Detroit restaurant they had been to a few times. First warning-Come Hungry! This place is easy to get to off the M39 Southfield Freeway. It is not large and you are not there for the decor. They... More

We went here for a late lunch because this place is small and not easy to get into for dinner. The menu is set and no substitutions. What you see is what you get. I ordered a noodle dish and had to take the salad even though I asked if something else was available. Excellent food and service despite the... More

The food is just yummy, love their minestrone soup with freshly baked bread. Staff are friendly, the ambience is cosy and prices are reasonable.

Old school Detroit Italian in the Lelli's tradition. The welcome and service are friendly and genuine. The Minestrone is excellent, the salad expertly dressed tableside, sauces flavorful, meats, fish and pasta all cooked perfectly. Great value for a meal that hasn't disappointed my family in over 30 years. A rare achievement for any restaurant.

The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. My husband had the whitefish, which was excellent and I had the lobster tail, which was fantastic! Very generous portions and we really enjoyed the table side prep of the salad and dessert. Reasonably priced as well. This is a regular stop for my husband while doing business... More

We have been going to Moro's for 30 years and have probably been there 200 times. We have never had a bad meal there. Terrific menu, excellent service and the world's best salad. We have lived in Asia for the last few years and have travelled the world. Moro's is still in my all time top 5 and my sample... More

We received recommendations to try this Allen Park tradition. Moro's was wonderfully unpretentious despite the formally attired male waiters and white coated bus boys who work feverishly to provided friendly, timely service and fast refills of ice water throughout the meal. A fresh sliced bread loaf sprinkled with sesame seed was served with pats of butter. More came without ever... More

People travel to get to this restaurant. Great food with an old style elegance. Don't be fooled by the waiters in tuxedos - it can be casual or dressy. A little pricey but well worth it.

The gem of Downriver restaurants. Although the waiters wear tuxedos you can feel free to come either casual or dressy. We have been coming to Moro's for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. My wife and I will usually order 2 different entries and do a half & half split... shrimp scampi and white fish, tenderloin and lobster,... More
