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.
Excellent service, great food, great atmosphere. Will certainly go again soon.
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!
Chef is marvelous and we enjoyed every bit of the experience on the busy Valentine evening.
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.
Mediocre on all counts...
The branzino was FISHY and tiny.....which means poor quality.
Even the cocktails were lifeless!
Saved only by Erica the waitress!
Food, service and ambiance all excellent. Great for lunch or dinner
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.
