Seemed like it was going to be a typical Italian place in a business building but was quite surprised at the elegant setting and the quick and constant attention by the staff. The food was beautifully and creatively presented, like my pumpkin pasta in an actual pumpkin bowl. The salad my client ordered was plentiful and looked delicious, she was... More

Il Moro is really two restaurants, an indoor modern dining room and a lovely outdoor patio with its own waterfall and brook. The same great food and friendly service in both locations. The ambience is always friendly, and constantly changing because of rotating art exhibits. I've only been going there for about 25 years, but the crowd has always been... More

Ambiance is graciously sleek. Huge bar , glass walls, scenic outdoor patio with beautiful water fall. Set amid office buildings towering above, this is a truly romantic hideaway in West LA. Cuisine is Italian with an emphasis on seafood, which is their specialty. They do have delicious sounding chicken, pasta and meat dishes. We had calamari appetizer, huge portion, and... More

the first courses were OK at best. My octopus was fresh and tender, but the dish was essentially without spices and consequently totally bland and uninteresting. My wife's salad was similar - good ingredients, but the final mixture was missing the herbs and spices it needed to have interest. My branzino was OK albeit rather small, but the versions at...

When our friend told us to look for Il Moro on the ground floor of a high rise on Olympic Blvd., I thought the worst. I expected a cafe with evening service or worse. It turned out to be a great restaurant. The decor modern and very tastefully done. The service was great. Despite it being Saturday night, we didn't... More

I work two blocks from this hidden gem off Olympic Blvd just west of Sawtelle. It is a frequent lunch spot for my office. We have NEVER had a bad meal here. The menu is excellent. One of my favorites is the Branzino with capers & olives with a side of garlic sautéed spinach. Really first-rate! The daily specials are... More

We went to Il Moro once more. We had a great experience but I saw a negative review and wondered how that might happen. Let me tell you that nothing has changed from the perspective of someone who has been to Georges Blanc and Aimo and Nadia to name some of the European stars. It is a pity that tripadvisor... More

Food is okay but definitely not worth what they charge $$$$. Lunch for 3 of us included 3 salads and two ice teas. Cost $96.00. Wait staff was fair and the location is not very great. Plenty of great Italian restaurants in Los Angeles so don't waste you time there..
