The restaurant looked good, but this is some of the worst food I have eaten in quite some time. We had the risotto and it tasted of nothing. Did they not use white wine or chicken buljong when they made this? The seafood soup was also a tale of woe. Stratford caters for a lot of visitors, so there is... More

We came here after reading Trip Advisor reviews. The food, decor and service are good - but they do not justify the prices. I don't see how a pizza can cost £16, ice cream from a tub can cost £6, or a bottle of Malbec can cost £28. That would cost a couple over £70 for pizza and ice cream... More

We visited here for a birthday meal and we chose it because of the large variety of seafood options. We weren't disappointed, the quality was fantastic especially the seafood starter!! Staff were fabulous and very attentive too. If I visit Stratford again I will definitely come back here.

We visited as a couple for lunch having bought a deal on Travelzoo. This entitled us to three courses from the set menu. The service was attentive and friendly and the wine was good. However the we were disappointed with the food. Although tasty we felt the menu lacked imagination and choice. We had paid £25 for three courses which... More

Went for dinner with our friends who live in town. The service was very attentive, the wine nice and the location of the restaurant very convenient to town centre. I had a pasta with seafood and chilli, which was lacking in seasoning (not very much chilli - or parsley or salt or any sort of seasoning it seemed) and there... More

Family party this weekend. Had a lovely meal in Il Moro. We were greeted by Christine who introduced us to our waitress Alex for the night. She was very attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. Would recommend it to anyone.

We had heard how good Il Moro is - it has just moved to a new location at 44 Guild Street - this is a restaurant that was created several years ago as a Champagne and Oyster bar - sadly that did not work out and after one or two other incarnations the owner of Il Moro has taken it... More

We loved this place. We wanted a lovely, traditional, quiet night out. We got it! The ambience of this traditional Sardinian restaurant was simply lovely. We sat by the window watching the world go by. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The house draught lager was a lovely drink. We had seafood starters and they were perfect. The sliced...

The food was just about ok - my king prawn starter was fine, the other half's carpaccio was far from raw, my asparagus and saffron risotto was bland and the saffron was conspicuous by it's absence - overall disappointing for the price. The 'service' was so bad that it was almost funny. On finishing my glass of wine, the waitress... More

Not wishing to put anyone off going to this lovely restaurant but on the evening that we visited there was clearly a bit of a chill in the air between two of the members of staff. If looks could kill then the pair of them would have been carried out feet first! It began when we walked in with both... More

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.
