Situated in the heart of Stratford upon Avon, less than 70 yards from Shakespeare’s birthplace and 5 minutes from the Royal Shakespeare Theatres, Il Moro is a family run Italian / Sardinian restaurant combining traditional ideals with a fresh and contemporary approach.
Sardinian chef/owner Massimiliano Melis 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 pastas, breads and desserts are hand-made on the premises, making Il Moro a little bit more than the average Italian restaurant. At Il Moro we are passionate about fine foods and wine and dedicated to providing the best possible service. We believe that there should be no compromise when it comes to delivering this to all of our customers – be they locals, tourists, old friends or new acquaintances.
Recently relocated to larger premises on Henley Street, we are proud to offer a range of dining options to our guests. The ground floor offers elegant dining alongside a spacious bar area where guests can either enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or simply pop in for a coffee or a glass of Prosecco. The first floor houses further dining and also the kitchen where guests are welcome to watch our team at work in the Chef’s Dining Room. Ideal for corporate dining and groups of up to 28, this area is available for private hire. On the second floor, away from the hustle and bustle of the traffic sits a private roof terrace with casual seating for up to 40 guests. A veritable sun trap, guests can either sit in the shade or bask in the heat enjoying stunning views across the roof tops of Stratford. The roof terrace has a fully fitted bar and is also available for private hire.
