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.

In Stratford U Avon for a short break and walked past this restaurant as it was very close to our hotel. It looked quite nice so checked Tripadvisor and the quality of reviews persuaded us to book. Glad we did as we've just had a very enjoyable meal, reasonably priced, and with pleasant hosts and service. Nice to see a place live up to its reviews, and happy to add my own recommendation.

We had a fabulous meal, great atmosphere. We were visiting the area and checked out the website and reviews, what a great place, our visit was mid week, place was very busy. Food was first class. When we are next in the area, will definitely return.

Had our second fab meal in Il Moro on Friday night while visiting the Mop Fair, we have been regular visitors to SUA for about 12 years but only found this little gem last year. Once again a lovely evening, greeted by a lovely lady then served by Alfredo who was so helpful. We were at first a little intimidated by the menu being in Italian but Alfredo went through it all in lots of entertaining detail and we had a fantastic. Eal and a wonderful night. Would well recommend this restaurant.

A lovely evening in a family run restaurant. Excellent food and friendly staff. The scallops and fresh sea bream simply and beautifully cooked. Pinot Grigio nice too. Looking forward to the new brunch opening in November. Oh and gorgeous waiter.....

We chose this restaurant as it looked really pretty and the menu attracted us after recently being in Sorrento. I had a delightful Fregola e Asparagi with rocket and fresh peas in it it was so fresh and light, a plentyful portion too, my husbands risotto he said was excellent as well he said. Not a cheap evening, but very enjoyable and delightful decor and serving staff.
