Italian
Morso is a modern community-centred restaurant and bar, serving hand-crafted fresh pasta and small plates of Italian bites alongside innovative Grappa-based cocktails.

We take inspiration from Italian tradition but give all of our dishes a Morso twist. We select fresh, great quality, regional ingredients and let them speak for themselves in our cooking. Our fresh pasta is handmade in-house daily and always served "al dente”. All of our food is served in small portions allowing our guests to discover a variety of styles in one meal.

On the bar front, we chose Grappa as our champion spirit. Distilled from wine pomace, Grappa is a superlative drink and highly versatile. It can resemble vodka, rum and gin in its younger forms as well as exhibit flavours of scotch, brandy and cognac in its aged versions. We use it in all of our cocktails, revisiting some old classics, alongside our own house-potions.

We invite you all to join us for a meal and to take part in the #grapparevolution

Great food, great service. Very friendly staff. We will definitely be back again. Our three year old daughter enjoyed it the most given all the attention she received from the staff.

Food is always delicious here and service excellent and friendly.
Small restaurant which has lost some tables due to covid but also has managed to put some tables outside on the pavement
We ate inside but felt perfectly comfortable.
Its very easy to over order but even if you don't you can always order more which will usually turn up very quickly

We booked and were very much looking forward as there was a £20 off offer advertised online Tues-Thurs.
The food was ok but service was average, waiting a long time to order and then all the small plates of food arriving in such quick succession we felt rushed to eat. When the bill came waitress would not honour their £20 reduction offer as we had not quoted the code on arrival which was a shame in these uncertain times despite us querying it. What was supposed to be a relaxing evening with friends ended with us feeling disappointed by the poor customer service when we had previously heard such positive things about the restaurant.

Food was a little underwhelming - some dishes exceptional (aubergine, baby gem) and others just not (tuna, burrata). For the price, I would have expected better cuisine.

Delicious though might not be for everyone. Myself, I loved every dish but my wife and son found it harder to like some of the dishes so suggest you look at the menu prior to booking.

The lamb cutlets, the egg ravioli and the panna cotta rated highly by all of us. The grappa collection is amazing (and tasty).

Service was friendly but the kitchen a bit slow.

Covid19: good space between the tables (unlike in some other restaurants).

Earlier this week we headed to Morso - a modern Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta and small plates of Italian bites. 🍝 🧀 #EatOutToHelpOut

They serve their dishes tapas-style which suits us as we love to try lots of different dishes. We started with complimentary ciabatta bread with homemade ricotta cheese – so delicious! 😍 Slowly they brought out additional dishes we ordered:

🌟 Parmesan skinny fries - Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, parsley, fresh San Marzano tomato ketchup
🌟 Arancini - tomato & mozzarella crispy risotto bites, pea & Pecorino DOP sauce, Italian wild rocket

Followed by the main pasta dishes:
🌟 Tagliatelle cacio e pepe - Pecorino Romano DOP, Grana Padano DOP, black pepper, butter

🌟 Maltagliati - spicy Calabrian ‘nduja, fennel seeds, British pork sausage, baby spinach, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP


Then ending with OUT OF THIS WORLD dessert:
🌟 Potted Tiramisu - signature take on the classic Italian dessert enriched with dark chocolate crumbs and sweet Marsala wine

Of course, no true Italian meal is complete without wine – Nat ordered Who Needs a Gavi? (Cortese, Piedmont) - fruity, vibrant with a zesty finish and I ordered Another Day in the Sun (Zibibbo, Sicily) - elegant, intense and organic.🍷

This Italian tapas restaurant is relaxed, welcoming, friendly and the food is simply delicious and flavourful. This is now our go-to Italian favourite!😋👌🏽

We arrived early and were prepared to sit at the bar, but they were able to seat us right away. Ordered drinks from their signature grappa cocktail list and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, and they were even able to do my pasta dish with a gluten-free option which was far better that I expected. The manager (owner?) and servers were very helpful and explained everything well. AND, especially with 'Eat Out to Help Out', the meal was definitely worth the price.

Food was excellent and so was the wine. Few plates were very small so you need to order more but everything on the menu is fresh and tasteful. Would also recommend the Panna cota, if you have room for a desert! Only issue was that one of the staff members was rude at the start and spoke to us in a way that had us upset but we went ahead with the reservation and were served by another waiter who was great and rest of the evening was very good!

But no face coverings nothing?!
