Moro is one of the safest bets in London if it's good old hearty Italian fare you're after to fill your stomach. Reliable and consistent, Moro has been a beacon of the Italian cuisine scene for years. Its patrons spread the word of Moro - and indeed its next-door-neighbour, Morito, a sort of extension of Moro specialising in tapas - like excited children emerging from a movie theatre.
So, why all the fuss? Well if wood-roasted sea bass with a potato and fava bean puree or char-grilled grey mullet doesn't get your chin wagging and mouth watering with anticipation then we don't know what will. Indeed, most of the main courses available are either wood-roasted or char-grilled so you'd better get used to the rustic style.
The crispy salt cod, crunchy rolls, succulent seared pigeon breast and even their Lebanese veggie soup are equally tempting, as is the selection of fine wines (which hoik the final price charge up a bit). The tapas could also be argued as slightly high-priced but you certainly get a payoff when you pop the delicious bite-sized chunks into your mouth.
Unless you've somewhere far more important to be, we strongly recommend you gathering a bunch of friends, or bringing that girl/guy you've seen on the train each day for the last month for a proper Italian treat. Trust us. Come to Moro today.
