Morso is a culmination of a life in food and a passion for culinary excellence. Thirty years ago Pino Luongo, brought the then unfamiliar flavors and culture of authentic Tuscan cooking to New York City. With the essence of his homeland at heart and a truly original style of cooking, Luongo shaped the Italian menus and restaurants we consider as classics today. For Morso, his values and passion remain unchanged. Great, seasonal ingredients, skillfully prepared, shared with family and friends. Taking little bites of inspiration from all over Italy and the Mediterranean, combined with Pino's finest signature dishes; Morso represents a quintessential dining experience—authentic contemporary cooking in a vibrant and relaxed setting.

We joined two friends for lunch and it could not have been a better experience. Terrific food and service and quiet so that conversation was easy.

Simple looking restaurant, with no character. Food was descent, while service was a bit overbearing. Had the portions been larger, this would be a great go to neighborhood restaurant. As it stands now, very pricey for what you are getting.

Morso is consistently good but best to stick to the menu. Dover sole special so uninspiring especially given the price tag.

Love the terrace on a low humidity night. It was pretty crowded and looked they were short a waiter because it was slower than usual. But we will go back because it's lovely outside.

The food was not what I expected at those prices...salad was swimming in an oily dressing. The popovers were great but one is only allotted one each unless you can flag down a waiter and ask for another. The bread served was mediocre. We chose this restaurant thinking it would be reasonably good food at reasonable prices as we were entertaining a family. It was just ok - 4 of the 6 people only ordered one course and still the bill was over $500.

The food is quite good; however, the kitchen seems not to pay much attention. They made two significant mistakes, bring the wrong dish for an entree and for desert.

Only when you can dine outside. Too bad there is something wrong with the acoustics. We've gone several times for the patio dining and loved loved it. Friday night was a different experience because you couldn't hear. It took a lot of pleasure out of the experience when people are yelling and you can hardly hear your waiter tell you about the specials. We will only go for outdoor.

This is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Food is always very creative and the woman we often have as a server is extremely knowledgeable about Italian food and ingredients. The only con is that it could be quieter. Sound bounces and some of the diners apparently are there to "be seen and heard".
