First visit in new premises and food was very good. Starter of calamari was a small portion but main course, shellfish "stew" was excellent. Chianti Classico was smooth and just right for choice of food. Service was attentive without being obtrusive and restaurant busy for a Monday night. Well worth a visit when in Stratford and well recommended.

We had visited Il Moro once before in their smaller premises in Greenhill Street and were less than impressed but when they moved we thought we would give them another try and we are glad we did. We were greeted by a very friendly welcome and were seated downstairs where there was a not a table to be had and... More

Went 12th September with a group of friends, 7 in total. The place was very busy and had a great atmosphere. We were seated upstairs with a view of the kitchen. Service was excellent and the head chef was very visible and happy to talk to the diners, which is part of the experience. Everyone was very happy with their... More

Really enjoyed the overall experience in Il Moro. The food was excellent and the general ambience and service was also very good. Sounds unadventurous but the pizza was beautiful, the crusts really crisp but still light and the toppings very authentic (we've just come back from Italy and we were craving Italian food!). My wife had a risotto which was... More

It was apparent from the service we received we became invisible after getting our table whiich was not well positioned despite having been reserved in advance. The acoustics in the restaurant are dreadful. It can be difficult to converse.The tables are too close together and I was constantly jostled by waiters trying to get through the gap between seats.

I went here for the first time in its opening week, expecting great things as this was already an established business making a move up in the world. To be honest I wasn't disappointed at all, it has to be said that for the price, the portions could have been larger. However the quality of food and service was superb... More

We had a 3 course meal for two, we both ordered the squid starter, which was excellent except for the amount on the plate, 5 smallish rings of squid for £8 is just not value for money. Our main courses were excellent, my only comment would be to suggest that a plate for the used mussel shells is provided try... More

Having heard mainly good reports when at their original address, we decided to try Il Moro at their larger new venue. We were seated in the noisy upstairs room at a table squeezed into a corner so tightly that I could hardly get to my chair. Our table was within a few inches of the next table. The menu was... More

I loved the restaurant when it was situated on Greenhill street and it is now at a new larger venue. If you love fresh Italian food, this is the place for you.

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.
