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

Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Food and service was outstanding. Not a bad word for Il Moro...fantastic. Great shared starter. Past and linguine for the main. All of the highest standard. Well worth a visit.

We ate here on a Friday evening. Although it was half empty, we were told it was fully booked and they only had the high table seats - which we decided to take - once we popped to the toilet we discovered the 1st floor which was completely empty, and they had a roof top terrace. e ordered a sharing...

Everything was delicious. I had probably the best "orata" (sea bream) ever. Food has the authentic taste of Sardinia. I will go back for sure because there are still many dishes that I would like to try.

There really was nothing wrong with this restaurant - the staff were efficient and friendly, the surroundings were pleasant, the food was generally tasty but it just didn't do it for me. I felt I was in a cafe after hours - just didn't have a restaurant ambience, and although the food was well presented, the portion sizes for the... More

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!

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.
