Booked in late on a Saturday evening with family. Very accommodating. Noticed the manager / owner was turning people away at the door rather than try to take the money and hope the staff can deal with it. Food and service excellent. Very passionate about...More

Visited this restaurant several times and the food has always been excellent. So please visit if this is your type of food. But avoid on very busy nights as they don't have enough staff which is a shame. Will definitely be going back.

Hi, In heels I would say about 10-15 mins - we're at the top end of Stratford just past Shakespeare's house and the hotel is at the bottom end. Maybe you should get a taxi - save your feet & your hair as it's just started... 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.
