Caffe Molise Ratings and Reviews
We've been here before and Caffe Molise never disappoints. Unfortunately, we were seated in a room with a large table of high school kids on their prom night dinner. Way to loud. Don't know why staff didn't seat us at other tables in a quieter area. As we left, I saw empty two person tables.
my husband and I went here before going to a show at the Eccels theater (3 minute walk). All of the food that we had was really tasty. The service was great and quick. We were in a hurry to get to our show and they made sure we got our food and check quick.
I'm a lover of Caffe Molise but this time seemed to miss the mark. The food was pretty bland, I kept having to put salt and pepper in my pasta to get some flavor. I was going to ask for more parm cheese but our waiter disappeared once the dishes were delivered until it was time for the check. Our waters went unfilled. I think they were having an off night.
We visited prior to a Utah Symphony concert. It is within an easy walk and there are multiple parking options surrounding both the restaurant and hall. The food was top quality and provided several unique options with a full wine/beer list.
Thanks for a great evening!
It was the first time for all of us and we loved every dish! The lasagne was really good, home style, delicious. The other dishes enjoyed were the chicken pannini, blackened shrimp over pasta and fresh spinach with a cream and cheese sauce. The hazelnut chocolate cake, creme Brule and tirimisu were all a hit. Service was excellent as well.
After a long day of ski racing this was a welcome dining spot in downtown SLC.Food was excellent and kid friendly without a kids menu.Adults enjoyed good pasta and special items.My only complaint is that nobody in SLC knows how to pour a decent drink(ie martini)due to archaic laws.
I really like Caffe Molise - the food is predictably very good. On this Saturday night, the service was really poor. Our server took way too long to get to our table after we were seated because he was chatting up a group at another table, even spending time looking at their photos. By the time he showed up, we were ready to place our full order and we hadn't even heard the specials. It also took him too long to bring out the wine (again chatting up the other table). After we got our check, he left us hanging again and we had to track him down to pay for our meal. We've never had such poor service here in the past.
Ate at Cafe Moliise last night. I had the polenta con salsiccia as an appetizer. The polenta was delicate and the sausage was very tasty. The sauce could have used a little more salt. I had the bistecca as an entree and really enjoyed it...lots of great flavor. My husband had the involitini de pollo which he enjoyed as well. The house zinfandel was nice. Service was eager and attentive. Overall a great dinner. I'd definitely eat there again.
We love this restaurant! We were on a ski vacation 4 years ago staying at the Marriott SLC and we're thrilled to walk across the street and have a delicious meal. We just returned to SLC and came back to the same great food, service and outdoor patio. We went 3 nights during our stay. You won't be disappointed!
The food was great, the staff were helpful and personable and the atmosphere was enjoyable. By dividing the space into four smaller spaces separated by walls the noise level was cut way down which made it easy to converse even though the restaurant was busy.
The food was delicious and just the right portion to be able to finish it without feeling stuffed.
PLUS, reasonably priced.
We will definitely be going back again and again.
The food was the star of the evening. We went for a casual family get together, some in town some out of town guests. Staff accomodated a last minute change in the number of guests without a flinch. Service was attentive but not imposing. The wine list delivered well. Overall great experience. Would recommend to anyone because of quality of food and level of service.
Had a very good experience with Caffe Molise. We came up as a group of 10, found the restaurant quickly, and we were seated even quicker. The service that we had was astounding. They did not treat us like High School Teenagers (which we were) but valuable paying customers. The food was super good!
The service the past couple of times I've been here has been pretty bad. This time our waitress had quite the attitude problem. Oh, and she actually picked up & tried taking away my friends glass of wine that wasn't finished yet. Big no-no. Caffe Molise used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but don't think I'll be going back anytime soon...
I had high hopes for this restaurant but was ultimately let down. The meal started off well with great bread and a delicious salad, but fell flat when my beer was served warm, my chicken marsala had all of three mushrooms on it and not the traditional marsala sauce, and the chicken was luke warm. I would not return here.
Food was great and service was great also. I had a fish stew that was loaded with fish. The stock was amazing. My wife had a chicken dish that was also great. A good wine was suggested. Chocolate mousse desert was suggested and it was tremendous. Good bread also. We did not have pasta. Next time. This was our first visit.
I don't like rating a restaurant based on Valentine's Day but that is when I was there. Our server explained one of the specials incorrectly. I was a little surprised when my dish arrived and had a completely different sauce. My salmon was ordered medium rare and came out very well done. They did bring me another piece of salmon which was much better.My husband ordered the pork and thought it was good. I don't get to SLC very often so I'd probably try somewhere else. Bread is very good.
