Caffe Molise Ratings and Reviews

As always when I have dinner at Caffe Molise the food is very good and service is excellent. I must say that this past Tuesday they ran out of whipped butter. Still being from Wisconsin I had to have butter which they brought to the table. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

we were seated in front but found the room comfortable and also noticed the sound level was keyed down due to acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling. Conversation was very easy despite a full room.
We ordered the Halibut and the Pepperedelle w meat sauce. The fish was cooked perfectly with the sauce having a well rounded flavor. The pepperedelle was cooked very nicely ,the sauce being of a consistency that it stayed with the pasta while the well cooked and shredded pork was dispersed evenly. The sauce flavor was a bit flat and could have been layered a bit better with a more prominent herb and a touch of red wine.
The waiter and staff were friendly , helpful and always available
The fish was overpriced for the portion size but the pasta dish was a very good value.
It would be an easy decision to return here for another dinner.

Cafe Molise features authentic Italian cuisine. I had pappardelle, which was good, but the overall dining experience is less than satisfactory. When you walk in the restaurant, I was met by hostessing frowning at computer screens one of whom looked up long enough to ask "do you have a reservation?" When I gave my name, she stared at the computer quite some time, brow furrowed, before actually acknowledging I was in the system. I was then brusquely escorted into another room, with stripped down, minimalist decor, where I was left waiting for too long before a harried waitress could find the time to take my order. The waitress checked back with me quite often after I got the food but with little personal warmth. I was left with the feeling that, while the chef had real ability, the people that comprise the restaurant staff had little interest in making their patrons feel welcome or comfortable.

The service was absolutely great! Our server provided fantastic recommendations and was very kind and personable. Checked in with our table frequent enough to keep us in mind without being rushed or hassled. It was my friend's birthday and they were so kind to celebrate it with dessert even upon closing, though we were not expecting it!

This restaurant came highly recommended, and I'm so glad that we went with it! I started out with reservations for 15 conference goers, but it soon blossomed into 20. The restaurant was VERY accommodating, and there were no issues, and the restaurant accommodated all of us with our need for individual receipts (business reimbursements). The food was excellent, the service superb. Everyone commented on how excellent the food was, and the bread was amazing! Go. You won't be disappointed.

Caffe Molise is consistently great. We often stop in there for dinner after flying in to Salt Lake City as they are open on Sundays. In the Summer the outdoor patio is very nice--a couple friends from out-of-state commented once that it felt like they were dining in Italy! The food is always fresh, great fish, a solid wine list and usually good service.

I was there with a group of 12 high school students for a dance and it was the best night we every had. The dinner was increadible and the people were awesome. And it wasn't too expensive. Definitely a great place for a date or just a nice night out for dinner.

Caffé Molise is one of our favorites, but this time our experience was mixed. We were seated in a room that included 2 groups of high school homecoming parties, as well as a huge birthday party of 20+ people. The sound level was deafening, and we had trouble carrying on a conversation. Management should have stepped in to ask folks to tone it down. The noise quite spoiled our evening's enjoyment.

Italian restaurant with a great patio setting outside or you can choose inside with a casual flair. Menu was not extensive but adequate. Portions were ample but not overwhelming. They only had one pasta that was made in house. Wine list was limited but adequate, if not a bit overpriced. Service was fast and friendly. We would go again at some point. Ask for a seat outside near the reflecting pool.

We always have a good experience at Caffe Molise and this time did not disappoint! Great place for a business lunch and although we did not take advantage of the Dine-O-Round menu, the meal was well prepared, quick and tasty! Will definitely be back for future meals!

My dish was great, my friends was over cooked but waiter didn't return to ask till we were 3/4 done. I would go again and recommend it but it wasn't as good as the first time I went to it. Good days/not as good days but overall a yes.

Excellent food. Everything that we ordered tasted deliciouuso . All of the food that came out of the kitchen and served to the other patrons looked and smelled wonderful. Our waitress was very friendly, helpful and made sure that our dining experience was one to remember. We also loved the outdoor patio. I want to come back at night and eat under the lights. The only suggestion that I have is to possibly offer some type of soup instead of salad for a pre main course.

I found this location on yelp and ate their 1.5 years ago. The dinner was great. Food was great, service was better, there was a jazz band playing out side, it was well worth the higher end pricing. We visited again with a friend and had just as good experience so for New Years I took my family there and the wow factor was not there, but being busy that's acceptable. The only true issue I had other than our server going outside to smoke and coming back in smelling like a ashtray, is that night I got hit with a champagne cork that missed my head and bounced off the wall behind me and hit me in the back. Nothing was done and I was not going to make a scene. Fast forward to the most recent visit where my sister and her husband joining us in celebrating their move to GA. We ended up with the same server from new years and she was less than pleasant to say the less. She could of had a bad day but we felt rushed, not welcomed, and a nuisance. The service was a 2 star due to the busser and helper waiters being very nice, they got us bread and a box that we had to ask for 3 times. The food was subpar and paying 33 dollars for the bisteca (I've had before and it was great) that was bland and the plate looked like a goulash, was very displeasing. My wife's gnocchi was good, she got it with shrimp and alfredo sauce.

Went to caffe molise for a friends birthday and it was really fun!! Great food. Not too crazy expensive. The only thing is their wine glasses aren't super nice...which is always a weird pairing when it's a nice dish with weird wine glass. I'm somewhat of a wino and think upscale restaurants should have real wine glasses.

There was a miscommunication on our reserve seating, she couldn't find our name & was going to seat us inside. The other lady found our name & took us immediately, but she was so fast, I didn't know where she went. Our waiter was excellent, the ambiance was great! It was worth it!

Classy/casual spot. Went here for a ladies night dinner. The service was great, awesome wine list, food was exquisite, very relaxed atmosphere! We went on a Friday evening and there was live jazz music outside. <3 The patio is lovely, with a small pond, water fall, string lights all about, and bugs were not an issue on a warm summer evening! It's a great place for romantic dates, small groups, and larger gatherings. Be sure to make a reservation! This place gets pretty busy on the weekends.

Ambiance on the patio was pleasant and lively, but not noisy. Even though the daytime temp was 93, the shady patio was quite comfortable at 7:15. Menu selections were ample and food was quite nice. Our server was one of the best in recent memory.

We had a group of 13 sitting outside in an idyllic courtyard. The server was very nice and attentive most of the time, but it was sometimes a little slow. The food was mostly really good, although my salmon was over-cooked but it tasted good so I didn't send it back. The prices were very fair. The ambiance in the outside area was awesome. We had a great time and would recommend.
