With a Travelzoo voucher this is a good place to eat otherwise it could be a bit expensive. The choice is very good and excellently served by very attentive staff from all over the place.The menu is Sardinian which equals Italian more or less. Lovely smoked salmon affair for starters and good fish afterwards - and a tiramisu to die... More

We went before going to the RSC - outstanding and original Italian (Sardinian) food. Excellent attentive friendly service, but not pushy at all. We had time for a three course meal in an hour. Wine list extensive and good at reasonable prices. Starter of bruschetta and Sardinian sausage was mouth watering. Mains - ravioli, lamb ragu, sea food linguine were... More

The staff were very... More

We called in for lunch and opted for the set meal plus a daily special. My set lunch included fried calamari and courgette starter, which was crisp and light with decent tender calamari, followed by pancetta, or slow cooked belly pork, which was good, but the skin wasn't as crisp as it cools have been my wife started with mussels...

Walking past ll Moro catches the naked eye, however the slow sloppy waiting staff are reserved to say the least, Anti Pasto dish was okay but could have been better - perhaps using fresh ingredients would help! Following this we had the risotto, to call it bland is an understatement. Having been one of two tables that didn't eat their... More

Walking around Stratford on a sunny late morning we really fancied an Italian lunch, so we popped into Il Moro just because it looked clean and inviting. It was a good choice as we got a good friendly welcome, smart quick service and an understanding of my (Raw Vegan) requirements. The food was absolutely top class both mine and my... More

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.
