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". Unlike classic Italian restaurants, all of our food is served in small portions allowing our guests to discover a variety of styles in one meal.

The pasta was by far the best I have had in a long time. So fresh and the flavours were sensational. Big portions as well which is always a bonus. I can’t wait to return!

Great location as only a few minutes walk from Kensal Rise overground and wonderfully welcoming staff. Service was excellent. Menu and drinks were explained well and as was the first time I tried grappa, I was kindly given a sample of a few before my decision. Would 150% go there again.

Had a reservation. Called ahead to say we were running 10 mins late. They said they would hold our table but then gave it to someone else because they arrived first and wanted our table!
We expressed our surprise and were then treated with very poor service as a consequence!!

Morsel is a lovely place to eat, the food is so fresh and tasty, the staff are very knowledgable when explaining the menu, however they allow you to enjoy your experience and delicious food and do not bother you. I have been twice with two
different groups and intend returning and introducing this restaurant to many more friends

First time to Morso Kensal Rise and did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left the experience was exceptional. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was outstanding as were the cocktails. I would highly recommend and look forward to my next visit.

Absolutely lovely food and a nice wine and grappa list. Delightful staff. Two quibbles: not enough staff (one very nice lady working very hard in the main room) and two dishes could have been a little warmer.

My girlfriend and I have been meaning to check out morso for a while.
We will definitely be back.
We sat in the heated outside area at the rear of the restaurant, which we didn’t even know existed.
The food and service was great.
Really enjoyed it.
A lovely little spot.

We went for dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We had a truly memorable meal. The calamari, Arancini, aubergine ragú and steak tagliata were beautifully cooked and full of flavour. We shared these with some inspired grappa based cocktails. We then had plates of perfectly cooked homemade pasta with lovely sauces including an incredible fresh tomato sauce. The highlight was the egg yolk raviolo with a perfect egg yolk in the middle which oozed out on opening to give a rich and buttery flavour to the dish. Staff were brilliant, really helpful and enthusiastic. A lovely Tiramisu as a potted plant finished off the evening and literally with a bang as all staff and customers joined in a hearty round of happy birthday sung for my husband as the sparkler fountain made us think fireworks night had arrived early!! A reallly lovely experience. We have been to so many ‘high end’ Italian restaurants in London and Morso beats most of them.
