**MORSO will be closed for a short summer break from 12-08-19 to 26-08-19. We will be back open as normal from 27-08-19. Buone Vacanze!**

Created by chef Paolo Vernetti (Jamie's, Carluccio's) and partners Vanessa Vaz, Barak Peled and Barry McCaughley, Morso is an independent, community-centred restaurant serving fresh pasta and small Italian bites, with a carefully balanced line of grappa-based cocktails.

The fresh pasta and small bites menu include signature creations like the Egg Yolk Raviolo and Welsh lamb Scottadito alongside more familiar recipes like the tagliatelle cacio e pepe and a pappardelle with shin ragu - all at under the £10 per plate mark.

On the bar front, the team is determined that their #grapprevolution will make every visitor a grappa-convert - with a line of over 20 different grappa bottles (including the famous Nonino Amaro, and a 3-litre grappa Storica magnum) and 12 grappa-based cocktails to match the food offer

All I can say it was fantastic, everything we had was so fresh and full of flavor. If I lived near I would go every night.

We went early evening when I suspect it was quieter. The service was very pleasant and the food was good, particularly the little bites and desserts. Would recommend.

Morso is spectacular. The food is fresh and delicious with a regularly changing menu. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. Their arancini balls are outstanding. Their prices are reasonable and because they do small portions you can choose exactly how much you want. I come here for casual dining and special occasions. Can’t recommend it highly enough

This was my wife’s birthday and having dined at Morso once before we thought we would repeat the experience. What we find very appealing is that the restaurant is not over ambitious. The menu is not vast but everything is prepared to a high standard and the flavours are really intense and precise. Service is friendly and informal but never sloppy or inattentive. The ambience of the restaurant is nothing special but when there are so many positives to the dining experience it really doesn’t matter.

Went early on a Tuesday evening so it was pretty quiet, but look forward to going back when it’s busier and there’s more atmosphere. Food and service were excellent!

This is my third visit to Morso and each time it has been perfect. I like getting 2 or 3 byte dishes folowed by a pasta course and then Tiramisu for dessert. I always get a Grappa cocktail to come when the pasta comes.

The night we went it was very busy, rather cramped and a bit noisy, but it was their first birthday. Nevertheless, service was prompt and the food was delicious. Beware the grappa menu - it's easy to get carried away!

What a gem this restaurant is! The staff is friendly, helpful (without being unctuous), and they take pride in the quality of the food they prepare. The ingredients are fresh and high quality; the spicing is delicate and flavorful; the presentation is pleasing; the taste -- is terrific!

Absolutely delicious food; the pasta is amazing! Lovely friendly attentive staff. Perfect restaurant for a relaxed date, or just to enjoy an authentic Italian small-plates meal.

Definitely a new favourite for us. We will be back very soon.

Also, I didn’t think Grappa was for me, but I may be a convert!

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.
