The sauce on my lemon pasta was too creamy and didn't have much flavor. Ditto for the grilled veggie appetizer -- not very flavorful. Needed more seasoning.

Great food, great service - attentive but not over the top. I had a F2F client meeting with five people around a table - we were comfortable talking at a normal volume. In and out in 90 minutes. My clients were happy and well fed; a win all the way around.

I was disappointed when the check came. We both ordered "specials." I ordered a salad with sliced steak and my friend ordered Branzino. The check came to over $90.00. We drank tap water, no wine. Just one cup of coffee. Lesson learned. Ask for pricing when ordering menu specials.

This restaurant has been our go-to on the west side for many years. If I'm meeting someone from around there or south of there, it is perfect because it is freeway close and there's usually plenty of street parking. The food is consistently excellent. Lately I'm recommending the grilled scallop and spinach salad. Pastas are excellent!

I would have rated 5 stars if I did not feel the valet parking cost was too high. $12 for lunch is a bit much. The waiter recommended the fish but did not say the price. Turned out to be expensive for lunch but yummy. The service was good.

Il Moro delivers time after time. There is never a drop in service, food taste, quality or ambiance. We took guests from Belgium, who are used to very fine dining, to dinner last week. They were blown away, with both menu and special items for the day. My favorite is the Puttanesca pasta. The Diavalo pizza was also terrific.

I hadn't been here for a few years and it didn't disappoint. The Risotto with lamb ragu was amazing along with the carciofi salad. My friend and I shared both and left feeling very satisfied. Our server was wonderful and the day was lovely enough to sit out on the patio. The only negative is that $12.50 for valet parking is pretty steep and higher than most Beverly Hills restaurants.

Did not like the table offered & host was not willing to accommodate my request for a 4-top table when there were only 2 in my party- even though there was at least one other 4-top with 2 in the party - and the restaurant was almost empty.

Food was OK, service absolutely awful. One of those meals where you are constantly trying to find the waiter. And the cost is much higher than what was shown on OpenTable -- should be 4-5, not a 3.

I love this place and have had a wonderful experience every time I've gone there. On Saturday night I took a group of friends who had never been there. The food was wonderful as always, but the service was not. I am sure this was an anomaly, but our server was confused and unattentive. I will continue to go there, as I am sure this will not happen again.

Il Moro is a lovely restaurant on the ground floor of an office building. Don't be dissuaded by that. We've had dinner there twice in the space of four weeks; we came back again because the food was that good. This time around, our party of three shared two salads (the Garga and the Capisante), both excellent. Our main courses: Tagliatelle al limone (delicious and very rich), the Fettucine alla Bolognese (hearty), and the huge-for-one-person Margherita Pizza; the pastas are mostly house-made. We then shared a superb Apple Tart for dessert. Our server, Alina, was attentive, personable and helpful. It is a "special occasion" restaurant, that is to say a tad pricey (unless you're a one-percenter), but it's a great place to have a quiet dinner with friends.

This is the second time I've been to Il Moro. The ambiance is delightful (outdoor seating) and the wait staff is very nice, personable, and attentive. I ordered 1/2 rack of lamb which consisted of 3 of the tiniest ribs I've ever seen with hardly any meat on them. I also split a spinach salad with my husband and found it was very plain and not tasty. Our table also split the grilled veggie platter, and that was the best of everything we had!
All in all, the food was marginal and over-priced, but the service and setting were wonderful.

We have dined at Il Moro on several occasions. We tend to dine indoors, but they have ample seating outdoors under heat lamps. The servers were professional, personable and attentive, without being intrusive. The food is always excellent, sophisticated but not pretentious. Our party of six enjoyed the salad with scallops, the salmon ravioli entree, the special salmon entree, and the O'Malom thin crust pizza. Various desserts were also delicious. It is a fine choice for a "special occasion."
