Il Moro Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is attractive and the service was excellent. We arrived early, before the crowd, and completed our meal as the restaurant got more crowded. At all times, the noise level was relatively low; we could hear ourselves talk, a plus.
The food was so-so. We split a thin crust pizza and, though thin crust is supposed to be crisp, this thin crust was soggy, as other reviewers have complained. We would not order it again.
We also had a tortellini soup. It was ok, but nothing to write home about.
In all, though the restaurant is situated conveniently to where we live, we would not be inclined to return. The food was ordinary, at best; the pizza was inferior.
I made a reservation at il Moro for Valentine's Day to take my aunt and uncle out, this was a restaurant that they told me that they have enjoyed in the past. I should have realized something was amiss when we arrived at 6pm and the restaurant was almost empty. But it was last minute so we were seated in the dining room. Our server seemed not to have a clue, any question he was asked he had to go ask a manager.
I understood coming in that it was going to be a price fixed menu, but $85.00 for three courses and no beverages is a bit much (I am used to NY prices so I do have a point of reference) When my aunt asked for the fish choice to be prepared without sauce the waiter (after checking with the manager) told us that would not be possible, then when we ordered desert - which for some reason had to be done when we ordered at the same time we ordered our mal - I asked if the apple tart came with ice cream and (again after checking with his manager) we were informed that a scoop of ice cream would cost an addition $5.00.
No beverages were offered until desert and then we were charged extra for coffee.
BTW - the food was only mediocre
Valentine’s Day dinner service was ATROCIOUS and the food was mediocre at best. We got water then sat for 35 minutes waiting for our server to take our orders. Only after I complained to the hostess did the owner take over serving us. He did fine but once we got our entrees and he handed us off to the server, it was a repeat of the beginning of the night. Confused is how I’d described both the staff and the menu. Thumbs down!
The food is consistently good, and some dishes are quite original. Il Moro is very good for business lunches with orders taken quickly and food arriving soon thereafter. Most of the servers are real pros; apparent turnover among bus staff results in sometimes sketchy service at the low end.
I was meeting someone for a business lunch. When I made my reservation online, I requested a quiet table with some privacy, and we were provided a table that met that description.
The food was excellent! I had the the rack of lamb, which was beyond delicious - Tender, juicy and perfectly done, with an excellent sauce. My companion had the tuna tartare, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
I had not been to il Moro for several years and am so glad to rediscover it. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the service excellent and the food superb. I had out of town friends with me and was anxious to find a special experience for them and I did with il Moro. Looking forward to many more visits in the future.
The food was absolutely delicious. All of our friends at the dinner were very happy. We had an early dinner so the quiet and ability to talk was fabulous. Even as more diners came the noise level was not bad, and tables have adequate space between them.
It was much like lovely meals we had in Italy. A warm greeting, a personable and informed waitress, attention when we needed it and space to enjoy the meal.
This is a well run restaurant with ample food choices for everyone - -each out-of-this-world-delicious and served by a wonderful, well trained wait staff in a lovely atmoshpere. There is even an outdoor patio area which is perfect for lunch on a warm day and a aaprivate dining room for your special occasion.
Il Moro is truly a jewel and if you are looking for someplace really special - this is it. You will not be disappointed.
I ordered a salad with grilled large scallops. I asked that the scallops be cooked all the way thru. I received the salad with what appeared to be 2 scallops cut in half and done perfectly. I only comment because it was a very small portion of scallops on a large bed of greens. Would not order it again.
Innocently ordering ice cream for dessert, I was shocked to find it priced $12 for two scoops I was told by the waitress that the reason for this is that Il Moro makes its own ice cream. They might as well spare themselves the cost and trouble, because their ice cream is perfectly ordinary-tasting—Baskin Robbins' is better. But Il Moro's food is good, the pizza excellent, the cappuccino decent. As in most places, the noise level is deafening.
Oh my pumpkin! This pumpkin cheesecake is the seasonal dessert of all desserts. Where have you been all my life?! Dressed up with crunchy walnuts, fluffy whipped cream and drizzles of decadent caramel, your typical pumpkin pie just dreams it could be this dazzling. Each bite is smooth, creamy and oh so indulgent. Mini celebration going on over here. Cue up the holiday tunes, I'm now in the spirit!
I had not been to Il Moro in a long time but it was close to the Odyssey Theatre. My friend arrived before I did and elected to sit outside under a heat lamp because indoors was like a refrigerator. What a pleasure to visit a restaurant where we could actually hear each other and have a conversation. Those restaurants are few and far between. We shared a starter of zucchini blossoms followed by the daily special of sole and a pasta dish and even made it to the custard and caramel dessert which was fantastic. The only issue was that our server recited the daily specials so quickly that we had to ask him to repeat them. Service was unobtrusive and now that I have re-found Il Moro I will return.
Il Moro is one of my favorites and on a beautiful day or evening the outdoor area is quite nice. The wait staff is always pleasant and professional. The menu is creative with plenty of choices including daily specials and I have never had anything to eat here that I have not enjoyed. October is a special time as that is when they serve their pumpkin ravioli in a fresh pumpkin which is delicious as well as seasonally festive.
