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. 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. 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

The menu is quite limited. You'd better enjoy pasta as that the only main course option. But the small plate starters are good and the restaurant has the best selection of grappa anywhere in uk!

Morso is a sure fire thing. Since the end of lockdown, I have been back already (embarrasingly enough ) 3 times, each time with a different set of people and the experience has been uniformly fantastic. The service is always great, friendly, attentive and authentic, and the food superb and you cannot beat the value for money.

The staff at Morso were really warm and friendly and helped make my girlfriend’s birthday dinner a huge success! We travelled an hour to get there but it was totally worth it and we’ll definitely be back again soon 😊

Definitely the best fresh pasta in London!
Morso offers the highest quality ingredients and staples of the Italian tradition with a modern twist. I suggest pomodorini e burrata (the sweetest tomatoes I have ever had), egg yolk raviolo ( simple yet delicious) and pepper panna cotta (the balsamic glaze makes a perfect contrast with the strawberries) . The prices are really good for the quality of the food and the service is warm and staff makes you feel at home. Recommended!

Morso is a great place for a long lazy sunday lunch - the food is awesome and comes in small bites and plates that you can order as and when you are ready.
The wine list has something for all tastes and pockets and the service is superb, friendly and caring.

A gem of an experience... The service was absolutely top notch. The waitress was funny, engaging, personable and very efficient. It was our first time at the restaurant and she made us feel like we were regulars/old friends. The waiter was also fantastic, he was able to share his knowledge of grappa and communicate his enthusiasm and passion without it feeling like a "lesson". The food was fantastic, definitely recommend the pappardelle and the black pepper panacotta but everything we had was a winner. Definitely would recommend. Great value, great service and great food. Will be back

This was our first choice after restaurants fully opened on May 17th. I love the simple but effective menu, every dish jumps with flavour and nothing beats the texture of fresh pasta! And then of course there are the wide choices of Grappa, some of the best I've tasted anywhere, even Italy. It has a slight bohemian feel, sooo relaxing, I highly recommend.

Under difficult circumstances we had a great celebration. The sharing plates were excellent unfortunately the pastas were tasty but could have been hotter. Thank you for the complimentary tiramisu with a sparkler a nice touch.
Will be returning.

We have been going to Morso since it first opened but, obviously, in recent months have not been regulars. However, this was our first visit since the lockdown started to ease and it lived up to all of our expectations, Even the weather did its best to make our visit an enjoyable event. The food is as tasty as ever it was and the waiting staff went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable.

We'll be back and would highly recommend Morso to anyone thinking of trying it.

Such a neighborhood gem with incredible service!

Due to a little mix up on our side, we weren’t even supposed to have a booking. Despite that they graciously seated us and welcomed us for our delicious Italian journey.

We started with a bottle of the smoothie wine- which was indeed smooth and decently priced. They recommend for two people, two starters and two pastas to share. To start, we ordered the burrata and tomatoes and arancini. Delicious. I’m a big burrata fun, and you really can’t go wrong. The stars were the pasta. We had the pesto pasta and the cacio e pepe. It was close, but I chose the Cacio e pepe as my favorite. It was cheesy but not overwhelming as some can be. The pesto pasta had a nice lemon zesty flavor for freshness- just delicious. Finally, maybe the real real star was the tiramisu. It’s their version and had these salty little chocolate biscuits on it. SO GOOD with their tiramisu.

We hadn’t had grappa since our Italian vacation, and our server took us back to Italy with a grappa tasting. He was clearly passionate about grappa which made it so fun and enjoyable for us to try them all. I would encourage you to try several tastings (there is a flight). It’s such a unique experience that you can’t get anywhere else.

Ultimately though- we’ll be back because of the service. It’s nice going out to somewhere that is welcoming and fun and offers you a personalized experience. Highly recommend a visit!
