Morello Ristorante's cuisine can't be confined to one region of the map. Instead, its chefs wholeheartedly embrace the spirit of refined Mediterranean cooking, accented with continental flavours and a touch of New-World flair. Escargot and gorgonzola in puff pastry and mussels in a fragrant broth nod to France, while entrees such as linguini carbonara and veal marsala represent its deep Italian roots. However, filet mignon, New York strip, and flank steaks—all of which are cut and aged in-house—display a classically North American sensibility.
The understated elegance of the dishes is echoed in the restaurant's decor. Earth tones and decorative masks warm the walls, and pendant lamps illuminate tables draped in crisp white linens like especially elegant ghosts. Tall windows at the front of the space offer views of the neighbourhood and ample chances to toast passersby.
