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.

Great Service, simple atmosphere and mediocre food. I ordered roman artichokes for $18, it was two small open artichoke hearts and some crispy fennel. It was good but pricey. My entrée was soggy brisket and even soggier paparadelle pasta. My sister had a dry piece of bouncy salmon. My husband has the Veal Milanese, it looked great and tasted just as good. Our desserts were great. The service was professional and friendly. The owner was so very nice and caring.

Nice Saturday Brunch
The egg white omelette with mushrooms was delicious.
My bloody mary was done well.
The hostess was very attentive throughout the meal.
She was very accommodating about our changes to the menu.

Delicious food well prepared and served. Entree portion appropriate size. Appetizer of eggplant parmigiana style could have been bigger for the price, or that size (which was sufficient) but lower cost
Wine list extensive but pricey

Food was excellent.

I ordered the pork chop special. I asked what the chef’s preference was and I was told “medium” so that’s how I ordered it. It came out way over cooked and tough. They did take it back and replace it with an order of rigatoni and meatballs which was fine. The other meals at our table were fine.
The reason I only gave 3 stars to service is:
First, the server tried to put the dishes down in front of the wrong diners in every case.
Second, the server brought out 3 entrees; then we waited several minutes for the next 2; and another few minutes for the last entree.
I also gave only a fair rating for value since the pasta portions were small relative to their prices . For example, my son counted 16 pieces of rigatoni for $16. Ridiculous.
Morso must do a better job in the quality of its meat and/or the quality of its preparation; adjusts its menu prices to reflect the portion sizes or vice versa; and train its staff as to the proper way to serve. Only then, it will be considered a true gem in the Sutton Place area; a neighborhood in need of more restaurants of the caliber that Morso potentially can be.

This was the best meal I had in the 4 days I visited New York City. The tuna tartare was so yummy and my second dish of truffles and pasta was outstanding. I also had the ribeye thinly sliced on a skillet topped with arugula salad . And for dessert I had the upside down tangerine polenta cake. Great food at reasonable prices.

Had dinner with a party of six and everyone enjoyed each part of their meal, which is rare. The staff/service were very welcoming and professional. Among the best meals (for the price) that I have had on the UES, especially Italian fare. I would say it is now our "go to" restaurant.

Not your ordinary Italian restaurant. We loved that several of the entrees could be ordered in 1/2 portions, as well as full. The food was well-prepared, the waitress was knowledgeable about portion sizes, & we opted to try a few appetizers, & I had 1/2 entree size.

From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome. After a slow start, sat for 15 minutes before anyone came over, the evening turned memorable. Jean-Carlo was an outstanding waiter. His recommendations were spot on. Always there to check on us, making sure we had everything we needed.

I made reservations at Morso for our friends birthday and new year's celebration. The restaurant granted my request for a banquette table to accommodate a party of 6 and let me sample some of their wines before we ordered a bottle of wine for the table (we ended up ordering 2). Fantastic service as well as food and we loved the small plate options! This was probably one of the coldest nights of the year and we forgot all about it. We were the last people to leave the restaurant at 11:00 PM as we were having so much fun catching up. I highly recommend this hidden gem in Sutton place!
