Tasty Italian meal. Special 3 course meal for £19 was very good value and tasty. Had poached egg and mushroom bruschetta, followed by seafood insalata, then truffles for desert. Highly recommended!

We visit Stratford regularly but eating out is generally not a highlight of our stay. We'd not noticed Il Moro before: though less than 2 minutes' walk from Shakespeare's birthplace it is not visible from where the cameras are clicking madly and therefore to most tourists might as well not exist. We had made a reservation but the restaurant was... More

This is an extremely welcoming restaurant with friendly staff who do everything to make your visit enjoyable. The food is first class made with great care and full of delicate flavours. Nobody rushes you and the pace of the meal was very gentle and was rounded off by complementary liquors. A pleasant, memorable evening

Stumbled across this place for lunch for family of three plus two friends. It was absolutely super. Enjoyed tasty Italian (some Sardinian) cuisine - a good selection of fish and meat dishes alongside usual varieties of pasta - and found the restaurant spacious. We dined on the roof terrace nicely shaded from the sun and then sprawled off on the... More

This place is very modernist in style, with clean granite topped tables. Service was very quick with a smile, and informative regarding the specials ... we were immediately informed that they only had two ducks remaining ... none of this ordering and then being told sorry, its finished. The menu selection is excellent. For a starter I had the seared... More

Some of the best staff and attentive service in Stratford-upon-Avon our starters were superb the main course of pasta was a little disappointing the sauces lacked a little flavour and were a little Bland considering the prices

Il Moro was on the way into town, walking from the waterside Premier Inn. Called in because it looked nice. Delighted we did, fantastic choices on the menu and good value pre theatre set menu. I had fig, honey and Parma ham salad to start which was absolutely gorgeous, followed by asparagus and saffron risotto. (Not on set menu). Real... More

We went for supper on an overnight stay in Stratford. Busy popular place, which is always a good sign in a town you don't know well. Stratford is touristy and it was good to find a restaurant that wasn't. Good food. Good service.

We had driven past here and always thought it looked an interesting place to visit. We were warmly welcomed by friendly staff on our arrival. There is attractive contemporary decor and plenty of seating including a roof terrace. Unfortunately there was only one other table occupied on a Saturday lunchtime, so it lacked atmosphere. The location of this restaurant although... 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.
