Mora is a small, independent restaurant in Leytonstone, East London, run by Chef Carlo Usai.
Focused on core values such as quality, taste and sustainability, our mission is to bring delicious recipes to life using seasonal, high-quality ingredients sourced wherever possible from small, artisan producers.
We specialise in fresh pasta, handmade daily in small quantities in our kitchen, but we also offer a nice selection of modern Italian dishes, with a touch of Sardinian cuisine.
Our homemade food is accompanied by an ever-changing selection of natural, organic, biodynamic wines from small Italian producers, local craft beers and sustainable soft drinks and spirits.
