About Morso - NYC
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.

Morso - NYC Ratings and Reviews
Have been dining at Morso for several years. It has always been wonderful. However, this time
a veal platter ordered by my wife was not up the the restaurant's standard. Must of the veal was
left on the plate.
When Roberto (manager) asked us if "everything had been OK, we told him our concern. When we asked for desserts, we were told that "dessert was on the house". Moreover, upon getting
our check, we never were charged for the disappointing platter. This was something to be expected of all good restaurants, but unfortunately- as I understand- it is not the case.
Kudos to Morso and its management.
Morso is a neighborhood Italian joint that just happens to be a great Italian restaurant. Our most recent meal was a last minute decision, and my wife decided we should all go out after a very busy week for everyone in the family. The meal we had was not only extraordinarily good, it was memorable. My wife had her favorite salad and my daughter and I had shared the special pasta as our appetizer. While there were a lot of yummy sounding specials on the menu, each of us stuck with the meals that keep us coming back to Morso, which for my daughter is the spaghetti Bolognese, but my wife the Rustica, and for me the osso bucco. I’ve probably had it at moreso one or two dozen times before this weekend, but I swear it just keeps getting better and better and I was apparently enjoying it so much that someone at a neighboring table said “I’ll have what he’s having!”
The service was terrible. Our waiter was arrogant. We had an 8PM reservation and they had already run out of two of the specials. We complained several times in order to get bread and serving spoons for our appetizers. Our check was adjusted at the end of the meal and we did receive complementary desserts, however we had to ask for that accommodation as well. I couldn't possibly say if the food was good or bad, as the venue was so completely unpleasant.
One fabulous lunch at the outside patio on a very hot Sunday. It was relaxing and breezy. I had the lemon sole and my husband had the sardines. We each had a glass of perfect prosecco. We had such a wonderful meal that we decided to have dinner last Saturday night. We chose to dine indoors and that was a mistake. The room is very, very noisy. I had the duck which had a thicker fat layer than it should have and when removed, the duck was almost tasteless and a bit dry. My husband had the skirt steak and absolutely loved it. The wine list is excellent without being very large, and I was thrilled to see a Barbera d'Alba which worked very well with our entrees. The blueberry tart was great while the carrot cake was almost a pudding and disappointing. I will most definitely return and will stick with the seafood.
Always my favorite! Great food with portion options. Good service. Pino the chef/owner is always charming and the perfect host. He often is in the dining room greeting people and offering suggestions. Outdoor dining under the 59th street bridge
And it's in my neighborhood.
Great choice for anyone in the mood for some authentic and innovative seasonal Italian food.
The food is excellent and gives you a choice of two plate sizes for pasta dishes. It can get a little loud at times and making it difficult to carry on a conversation. It is the only criticism that I have of the restaurant . The service is great and the place is very comfortable . I highly recommend it especially for those that live in the neighborhood .
Selfishly I was reluctant to give this restaurant five stars it deserved because when I call to make a reservation, I would like to be sure I get it! This is my go to restaurant! I love it for every day dining and special occasions. Never disappoints. The menu is very eclectic with familiar ingredients that are cooked and served in a unique way.
Brought some friends with us for dinner, hoping to sit outside but it had rained earlier. They raved over the food and drinks, and we always love the place. Service is excellent and attentive, and the food was delicious. Still not sure why they serve popovers with the meal, rather than good Italian bread. They go better with roast beef and gravy.
Wonderful front desk, wonderful service, absolutely delicious food, the "morso" small portion option leads diners into leisurely multi-course meals in a warm, Mediterranean-feeling environment. A favorite of this neighborhood--I just loving taking guests here, but also enjoy strolling over with nearby friends for weeknight getaway. The menu is diverse, with something for the adventurous, but also delicious light options for a more timid diner. Use of local suppliers leads to fantastic simple first courses centered on marvelous vegetables. The service is in key with the food--elegant but personal, low key, highly professional, with waiters dedicated to your pleasant experience, and unintrusive support staff always circulating with an eye to your any wish. I cannot rate it highly enough--it makes our few blocks feel like a "destination" a few steps from home.
I am hoping our recent visit was an off night. We'll definitely try again but I have had both the gazpacho and the salmon previously and this last time both were not seasoned well and therefore bland. I was so disappointed given how much I have enjoyed them in the past. Pasta is great and cooked perfectly. Salads nice. We'll try again but hoping for better a result!
Confusion!! Ordered the calamari appetizer to share and after 30 minutes we were given the pulpo. The waiter said he misheard us.
Main course linguini vongole was ok, but just some chopped clams and garlic with zucchini strips. The pork chop wrapped in prosciutto had no prosciutto. The waiter said they were no longer preparing it as described on the menu.
They did bring us a dessert to share, blueberry tart, as an apology.
This was our first visit. Not sure we will return.
