We really enjoyed our recent visit to Morso for NYE 2020. Entertainer Paul Loren's versatility across all 50's-60's genres is a joy. The staff managed the overflow "mature" crowd well. The cuisine didn't suffer from the faster pace. Puff pastries were great, as always. We...More

Usually, I do extensive reviews covering all the details of a restaurant. However, this will be the exception. Morso is ridiculously expensive for equally disappointing food. Foods were greasy, and bits of pasta uncooked and hard as they were in the box (not fresh at...More

We were fortunate to find Morso our 1st evening in the area. Even with no reservations, we were welcomed as "regulars", given a lovely table for 2. I would describe the ambiance as "classic New York" (in a positive sense); great menu and daily selections;...More

Food was very good. Not a huge menu - but most Italian basics covered. Great specials. Friendly service. Wine list very limited and on cheap side. Good choice if in this neighborhood!
