Description: 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.

You know when you are on holiday and venture off the main tourist route and find a gem of a restaurant and wish you had found it sooner? Well, Il Moro is this gem of a restaurant off the main tourist route in Stratford. This is the third time my wife and I have eaten here and, on all occasions, it has been fabulous. The restaurant itself is cosy and inviting and the welcome is warm and friendly. The food is superb; Italian, or more specifically, Sardinian, dishes are simply presented but excellently cooked and the flavours are intense. Service is also very good. We are looking forward to our next visit.

There is lots of great food, particularly British cuisine, in Stratford-Upon-Avon. But my husband and I were in the mood for Italian and this fit the bill perfectly. We stopped in, without a reservation, just after 5:30 on Saturday. They noted that they were booked up later, but happy to seat us right away. They have a very reasonably priced pre-theatre menu (13.95 for 2 courses, 16.95 for 3 course). The wine was delicious and the appetiser of involtini di melanzanie was unique and tasty. We especially enjoyed the tiramisu. We would love to see some more chicken options, but were satisfied with the choices. The place was very clean and the decorations were a bit eclectic. A fun change from other options in town. We would certainly come again. The pizza looked great. The staff was efficient and friendly.

Lovely restaurant with great friendly service. The food was brought out in style and the Chef, home grown from Italy is very proud of his food and welcomes you with a wonderful smile and delicious Italian cuisine!

We were there while on a short break in Stratford. The service and atmosphere are fantastic, and the menu is fresh and creative. I found my pasta dish a tad too heavy but it was well prepared and generously portioned.
The meal was a bit on the expensive side wren tut compare it to other places nearby but still worth a visit if you like modern Italian food.

Dined here on New Years Eve. We had left it late to book & couldn't get into our usual favourite. Have visited Stratford many times and didn't know this place existed as it slightly off the main streets. What a pleasant surprise. Lovely ambiance, pleasant efficient but unobtrusive staff, and the food was divine. Had a lovely evening and will definitely return.
