I've been here before and had a great experience. This was a Monday night and things appeared to be a bit off. Our waiter completely forgot about our group of 7. We had to go find him in order to get the check. Disappointing way to end the start to a great business dinner.

This is one of our favorite SLC spots due to the location and lovely outdoor patio. The food is typically outstanding. On our most recent visit - the food arrived at our table lukewarm and wasn't what we had come to expect. I will certainly go back and give them another try when we are in town again.

We had a lovely dining experience at Cafe Molise. The patio with live jazz provides great ambience for a summer evening. The service was very attentive, even down to the waitress asking if we wanted to pause between courses. This was appreciated. The pasta dishes were very good (shrimp fra diavolo and the goatcheese penne with sundried tomatoes and artichokes). Definitely a good value for the money spent and the food was delicious.

I made a reservation on Open Table for Cafe Molise for our 36th anniversary. The outdoor dining area was nice with the water feature and we were given a great table. Service and food were great! Thanks for making our anniversary special!

The setting is a gem for great summer dining. It is unfortunate the dining experience is so hit-an-miss; really bad service (had to ask for menus, water, the check, etc.) and spent over an hour waiting for mediocre food (ravioli is not made in-house).

Ashley our server was fantastic and on top of everything, and the ancillary wait staff were all very accommodating filling waters and clearing plates etc., right away. The timing for everything was excellent, it was very relaxing out on the patio and I appreciated having reservations. The outside patio is just gorgeous and is spaced out well so as to enjoy conversations and not feel crowded, nor was it too loud. It was a very elegant meal, my friends and I went all-out and tried each others' dishes, desserts, and the wine was fabulous and paired well. We were never rushed and stayed as long as we were comfortable to enjoy the scene, and it was just perfect on a warm summer night. I look forward to returning and will tell everyone about it; especially anyone who enjoys food as much as I do! Definitely a foodies' paradise.

Overall the experience was great. I just have two complaints, I ordered the fish of the day which was the salmon. It had excellent flavor but was over cooked, and I felt for $30 it should have been just the right texture and flavor. In general though the plate all together was delicious. Second the amount of flys in the place was horrendous, when im paying $124 for my fine dining experience I don't like consistently brushing away flys or looking up and seeing flys (and this was inside not out) . Something definitely needs to be done to get the bug situation under control. I don't care if there are fly papers placed somewhere or the door to the outside needs to be kept shut but it definitely doesn't enhance my dining experience at a place like this. Maybe at a place where I'm not paying $15 or more a plate it wouldn't be as much of a complaint.

First time visiting Caffe Molise. It was a recommendation from my son. My wife and I were having dinner with the president of the company I work for. Ate outside. Atmosphere was great, weather was great. All parties enjoyed their food. Service was outstanding. Will definitely go back.
delicious food, laid-back outdoor setting
This was my third time at Caffe Molise -- the first two times both food and service were fantastic. On this night they were really understaffed and it took a long time for just about everything -- to get seated (despite reservations), for the server to take our orders and check in on us, for us to get the check . . . the food was still outstanding, and I look forward to giving this place another chance and eating here again next time I am in town.
Great Food Great Waitress Great Atmosphere
We were in town for work and it happened to be our 35th Wedding Anniversary so we wanted to eat at a nice place. This was just what we were looking for the Ravioli Con Zucca was awesome and our Pollo Marsala and Beef Shoulder Special were Great. I would recommend anyone to try this place.

The food and the service were great, very high class. In fact, I've never experienced a salad that melts together in my mouth like Molise has done. The indoor walls are brick with several paintings, and so sounds are amplified. My wife and I were there for our 10th anniversary, and we had a good time. It was very loud however, and I could only hear a portion of what my wife was saying in conversation, so that was a bit frustrating. All in all, this Cafe deserves a good review. Great for a friend's night with a group, but I'd not recommend it for a romantic dinner, unless you are in the deaf population, (I'm not joking, my ASL friends and family would LOVE it here), as communication can be challenging.
Great food, good atmosphere
Took my mother here for Mother's Day. Great Italian food, comparable to Canella's but at a lower price point. I had the Parpadelle al Sugo and my mother had the chicken artichoke dish, the name is escaping me, both of which were outstanding. Service was the most attentive I've experienced other than the most high end dining.
