“For Morso we’ve taken a little bite of inspiration from here, a little bite from there. The end result is a contemporary menu, with a personality that’s always unmistakably me.”
– Pino Luongo
From birthdays and business presentations to wedding receptions and showers, Morso provides a dynamic backdrop to your next private event.

Italian Street Food on The Piazza at Morso. (minimums apply)
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to fantasize about venturing to Italy this year, we’ve recently a created our new favorite type of food and drink event; the Italian street fair. Because, unsurprisingly, Italy has absolutely mastered the art of serving food anywhere, anytime. In the spirit of living a delicious life, we’ve developed an event on our outdoor Garden Terrace and patio to bring you the very best of Italian fare. Prepare for your taste buds to be transported — and start planning that bucket-list Italian adventure ASAP. Think mouthwatering fried fritters, regional Italian wines, Prosecco and beer, panini stuffed to the brim, arancini, homemade mozzarella, polpette, buzetti, prosciutto sliced to order, and of course house-made gelato as some yummy options. Trust us when we say that Italy’s colorful street food scene is deliciously enticing!

Bites of inspiration from everywhere led to our name, Italian for “bite”, and our menu—with dishes available as morso (smaller servings, so you can taste bites of everything) or tutto (full size).
