So glad you are back open. Thaks for turning down the music.
Menu variety decreased since the last time we ate here. The FOCACCIA DI RECCO is still great but everything else wasn't as memorable as we remembered. Their cocktail and by the glass wine selection is small. The BLACK GEMELLI was way too salty. The pomodoro and calamari were good. The cocktails were mediocre. They brought us a free dessert but we aren't dessert people.
The service staff and ambiance were excellent, the apps and entrees were beyond great. Dessert was too heavy handed in the caramel department.
We are so happy to see Mora reopen here in Phoenix. We sat out on the covered patio - lovely with the trees surrounding it so you really are not aware of how close to the road you are.
Start with the Versace cocktail - delicious and heaped high with an olive oil foam. Warning - if you order the polenta appetizer, you are done for. It is easily the best polenta, but heaviest thing we have eaten. It will weigh you down immediately. Get the small bowl to share with your table. Enjoy!
Glad this is back open! Feels like home! Lots of new faces but old friends as well!
Love Mora! We are so happy they are open again. Everything on the menu is a little different but always delicious. Not your typical Italian dining. Highly recommend the Pomodoro.
Mora is back! Food was outstanding and a refreshed menu. Staff was great, swung by often to check in and ensured you were enjoying the Mora experience, #YUM
Place wasn’t f*cking open despite taking reservations. Fraud
We made a reservation on Opentable for our favorite restaurant. Our reservation was confirmed. When we arrived the restaurant was closed for renovations. My review is based on remembrance of things past...
We never got the opportunity to dine at Mora. Very frustrating that Open Table made a reservation for us there despite the fact the restaurant was closed! In addition the restaurants website didn’t indicate that the restaurant was closed. Very irritating!!!!
This restaurant is closed! Do not book reservations for this restaurant without calling to confirm they are open first!
We at Mora sincerly apologise for the confusion on our part with Opentable reopening our availbility when we were still closed. We are so very sorry for the inconvenience of your trip and your evening out as we know those are to be cherished after everything going on in the world. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Please rest assured we have corrected the issue and we look forward to welcoming you back once we reopen!
They weren’t open... this was supposed to be my husband’s birthday dinner. How disappointing to take a $60 LYFT all the way there with our friends and find out they are closed. We had confirmed reservations. This was my first time using open table and I don’t think I will be using it again.
Don’t book until you can confirm the place is actually open. We drove through half the town and the place was closed for renovations. Still gave them 4 stars because in the past the food was very good and I don’t want to down their overall reputation. But they might want to tell OpenTable about that.
Went to Mora for our anniversary dinner had the Burrata for appetizer, my wife had seared diver scallops I had the myer lemon dusted lamb loin, and for dessert souffle cheesecake @ Mora Italian. Amazing staff, food, and atmosphere as always

Mary, thank you for the amazing review! We are honored to be on your permanent restaurant list! We look forward to welcoming you back! Kind regards, Chanel Pusateri Guest Service and Events Manager
Best homemade pasta & pasta pomodoro I've ever had. My boyfriend and I were debating if we even had pasta that good in Italy. Focaccia is unbelievable. Scallops literally melt in your mouth. Our server was attentive and gave great recommendations. Perfect dinner & perfect evening. We are already talking about Mora being a great place to bring friends and family next time. Highly, highly recommend.
We went for restaurant week. They offered three dishes for the special. All were good. Unfortunately, they required the entire table to partake in the specials or noone could. Service was very slow, especially since the restaurant was not at capacity. Food was good.
We went for the 1st time during restaurant week. Everything was good, until the bill arrived. It was not the correct pricing for the restaurant week specials. My husband didn't notice until our credit card was already run. Our waiter could not reverse it at the time. He said it would be a day or 2 to show up. That doesn't sound correct to me. We will be watching closely to make sure the higher bill was reversed. He knew we had ordered from the special menu and just didn't pay attention to what he was doing when he entered it. NOT GOOD. We will try Mora again, but be very careful with watching about the fees charged.
Can’t wait to come back! Such a wonderful, relaxing and delicious evening!
The food here is amazing and the service is equally good.
Always a great experience every time Ive been to Mora! Friendly staff and delicious food and drinks

Great meal and excellent service! Thank you!
It was an excellent experience. We were provided complementary glasses of champagne and dessert for our anniversary. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was spectacular.
Thank you for the excellent review! We couldn't be happier that you were able to celebrate with us, and enjoy your special evening! We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Chanel Pusateri Guest Service and Events Manager
I will 100% be back!!! Best italian food and quality service.
Overdressed salad, but the octopus and the pomodoro were fantastic. Nice atmosphere overall and the service was attentive.
Hi Lyss, Thank you for your review! We are glad that you got to enjoy the pomodoro and the octopus. I have passed along your comments in regards to your salad to our chef. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future.
The food was absolutely terrible. The octopus was so bad I actually got sick. The pizza was no better either. Spicy sauce?! D- or worse. Would never go back.
The pasta just melts in your mouth. Great place if you are looking for a nice place to dine out.
Thank you for the amazing review!
Food was simple, but so so so good. We went for restaurant week and ordered a few off menu items to share. Just delicious. Fresh ingredients and quality ingredients made this stand out for our group. Planning the next visit!!
The food and service were great. It was our first time visiting the restaurant but it won’t be our last! Highly recommend.
We look forward to having you back in, thank you for the kind words.
This was my first time dining at Mora and I can’t wait to go back. We went during restaurant week so we were able to get 3 courses. We also ordered the lamb on the regular menu and it was to die for. I wanted to scrape the plate!!! Delicious food and instgramable plating! The flavor from each dish was so elegant and advanaced and the ambiance was initmate.
Gabby, thank you for your wonderful review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your first dining experience at Mora, along with getting to experience our restaurant week menu! We look forward to welcoming you back! Kind regards, Chanel Pusateri Guest Service and Events Manager
Mora is simply the best. Ambience, delicious food, and top notch hospitality. I recommend Mora to everyone I know.
Quality of food has really gone downhill from their opening a few years ago. It’s second rate now.
Always a pleasure to dine at Mora! Thank you to all!
If you are wondering whether you should eat at Mora Italian, you need only repeat this mantra: salted caramel budino. Say it over and over until it is ingrained in your psyche. The salads are good, the pasta is phenomenal, but the salted caramel budino is life changing.
Amber, thank you for your lovely review! We couldn't agree more about our Salted Caramel Budino, it is a game changer! We are glad that you enjoyed your entire dining experience, and look forward to welcoming you back for another Budino in the future! Kind regards, Chanel Pusateri Guest Service and Events Manager
My husband and I selected Mora because of its reputation as an excellent restaurant. We had an early reservation and were seated quickly. We ordered a glass of wine, and were given menus. We chose a small salad, and a pasta dish. We had to ask for setups.
My husband enjoyed his salad, but I thought my salad was very over- dressed. I asked for bread, and when the waiter brought it, he never bothered to explain what was in the small container. It seemed to be smashed olives.
The pasta was delicious. The buddino dessert was overly sweet, but I ate it all.
We thought the service was under-whelming.
Dear Trudi, Thank you for your review and your candid feedback. I apologize for the lapse in service that you experienced, as this is not the experience that we want for our guests. We do appreciate your comments, and I will pass those along to our team, as this is how we improve, and strive to get better. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future! Kind regards, Chanel Pusateri Guest Service and Events Manager
