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

Loved the whole experience. Deliberately small portions so you can try lots - and all so so tasty. Relaxed, fun service too and very good value!

Very friendly atmosphere and, when we were there, very few other diners. (Not a fan of piped music though).This isn’t a luxury dining experience but the food and natural friendliness of the waiters more than compensates. The informality of the experience suits us very well and the Tapas format is also effective: We particularly enjoyed sharing a large variety of dishes most of which were extremely tasty and well prepared. The fresh pasta is outstanding.

Took my parents here for lunch during the week and we had a fantastic meal. The service was warm, efficient and knowledgeable, everything we ate was excellent- and incredibly good value. I will definitely return and have recommended this restaurant to several friends.

Lovely people and a great idea but the only Italian was the Chef! Need to improve the standard of the food before I would return. It seems to be focussed on grappa and grappa cocktails - a new one on me - probably will appeal to the younger generation

St Johns Wood is not spoiled for good restaurants, so welcome Morso! A buzzy, friendly place with tasty food and charming service. I’m not always a fan of the small sharing plates trend, but Morso does it well, with reasonable size portions at very reasonable prices. With good food teamed with the grappa cocktails, we had a very enjoyable evening. The location on Boundary Road is a bit off the beaten track so would recommend that you find your way here and help this excellent restaurant to become a great success.
