Morso - NYC

Italian
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 really did not enjoy this restaurant. The food and service were fair. There are much better options on the upper east side. We would not go back.

    I had the asparagus special: the asparagus wasnt fresh, it was drenched in water and it lacked a sauce, a pretty dissapointing dish all in all. I also had pasta cacio e pepe, which was slightly better, but still quite off (it had way too much pecorino).

    We always have a great experience at this place. However, this past time, we felt that the service was not good at all. After our courses were served, there was never the offer of fresh pepper, grated cheese, etc. We left disappointed and the server tip reflected that...

    Great food and reasonably priced for the quality. Nice decor and good mix of patrons. Look forward to returning often. If you liked Centolire- you will be happy to find Morso.

    Been to Morso several times. This was measurably the least satisfying experience. The popovers that historically begin the meal were (oddly) preceded by bread. And when the popovers did arrive, they were cold. An order of baked clams were good, but the while not cold were not as hot as they might have been Fettuccine with bolognese was served (again) not hot enough, and the meat was granular and distinct from the sauce, a really poor offering. A companion had chicken "meat balls" and a tubular pasta. The chicken was so dense it resisted cutting with a knife, and the pasta was tough. No soup was listed on the menu or suggested by our waiter, though on the way out we noticed a patron having pasta e fagioli. To be fair, the wine was good and the pour was generous. So, not a great experience but quite atypical of previous experiences at Morso. Anyone, and any kitchen, can have an off night. Let's hope that was the case here.
