We live locally and visited as we had been given a Travel Zoo voucher as a gift. Nice service and great food despite it being very quiet on a rainy lunchtime. Just two points - the Christmas music playing well into January was a bit off putting. Secondly, once we had paid and headed for the coats we were ignored... More

A short break in Stratford, and a great opportunity to try out Italian regional cuisine. The food was amazing, the staff attentive, the wine list interesting, and we had a table by the window so we could watch the world go by while savouring some of the best Italian food we've had in the UK. Highly recommend it, can't wait... More

Superb meal with friends Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. We all chose off the set menu priced at £24.95 for 3 courses. With a choice of six starters I chose the calamari with a dip, this was delicious and a good size portion. My main meal was salmon which again was beautifully cooked and presented. To finish off I...

We actually came to buy a gift voucher for someone's Christmas present, and decided to combine it with lunch. We ate from the fixed price lunch which offered many choices at a reasonable price. Full menu is also available. The food was excellent including the pork belly as per picture. The décor and ambience are high quality and the service... More

With a Travelzoo voucher this is a good place to eat otherwise it could be a bit expensive. The choice is very good and excellently served by very attentive staff from all over the place.The menu is Sardinian which equals Italian more or less. Lovely smoked salmon affair for starters and good fish afterwards - and a tiramisu to die... More

We went before going to the RSC - outstanding and original Italian (Sardinian) food. Excellent attentive friendly service, but not pushy at all. We had time for a three course meal in an hour. Wine list extensive and good at reasonable prices. Starter of bruschetta and Sardinian sausage was mouth watering. Mains - ravioli, lamb ragu, sea food linguine were... More

We called in for lunch and opted for the set meal plus a daily special. My set lunch included fried calamari and courgette starter, which was crisp and light with decent tender calamari, followed by pancetta, or slow cooked belly pork, which was good, but the skin wasn't as crisp as it cools have been my wife started with mussels...

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.
