We had lunch there when visiting the Shakespeare Birthplace nearby. Husband had a custom pizza and I had soup and risotto. We were delighted to find this restaurant nearby. Well-seasoned food, appropriately served.

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.
