Who is Moroso?

Driven by passion, rooted in family— Dan Moroso, grandson of Italian immigrants, fell in love with the “Old Country” and its heritage of food as a child while traveling with his Nami and Nonno through Italy. Inspired by his childhood memories, Dan and his wife, Robyn, bring the storied flavor of Italy to Waco, Texas, inviting the community to sit at their table as part of the family. The MOROSO menu offers a variety of authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas and other Italian dishes based on family recipes and Dan’s experience as a chef in Europe. “At MOROSO, everyone is family…tutti mangiare!”

Want real Italian taste? Then you need REAL ingredients.

We prepare each one of our dishes fresh daily with only the finest ingredients—the way our family has cooked for generations. At MOROSO, we believe in scratch-made, honest food— whether it be our preservative-free Italian sweet fennel sausage, our Italian imported San Marzano tomatoes, or our flour, which is milled at one of the oldest mills in Napoli. We’re serious about our ingredients because we’re serious about serving you only the best. We create authentic Neapolitan pizza and offer a menu full of classic, traditionally prepared Italian food. The Old Country may be more than 5,000 miles away, but you can experience my Grandmother’s Italian kitchen right here in Waco, Texas.
