I took my fiancé to Caffe Molise for a special date and couldn't be more pleased with how perfect it all was, the food, while decently pricey, is outstanding, the salmon being the best I ever tasted. Wonderful ambiance and service, prompt service and food. Incredible evening spent at Caffe Molise

We have been to Cafe Molise several times and they never disappoint. We love the ambiance, attentive and knowledgeable servers like Angel, and the food is always wonderful. This restaurant is a treasure for Salt Lake City.

Found you online to combine with a visit to SLC. This was a lunch at 2 p.m. We were so very delighted with the menu, and the entree's were the best Italian we've had outside our home cooking and our Rome experience while we were living there. Honestly. The music and Orvieto just topped us over. We have been back for dinner and bought two gift certificates for family and friends to experience what we know will be a lovely evening. We are regulars now and cant wait til it warms up so we can experience the outdoor dining, so very much like our Rome dining.

The house made papperdelle is incredible. The mixed green salad is boring, it's just lettuce with a lot of oil and vinegar. It could be improved with salad veggies, fruit and/or croutons. My husband's chicken was dry and overcooked. We would definitely come back but we would both get the papperdelle pasta.

We all enjoyed our meal very much. Our server was quite attentive. And the manager was instrumental in helping us to solve a ticketing problem for an event after dinner. This is the perfect place to go for dinner before the show at the new Eccles Theatre.

We live out of town but frequently come to Salt Lake City to visit family. Caffe Molise is one of our favorites. We like the relaxed environment and the staff are always friendly. Highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli for an appetizer and the Aristo pork dish is phenomenal!

We have ate at café Molise on multiple occasions. We have generally had a very good experience and love the location! The last two times that we have went there however, have been very disappointing. The food just isn't as good as it used to be. The gnocchi used to be sap good, now it tastes store bought and the sauce is runny. The Chicken Masala was very dry and lacking of any flavor. The lasagna was just ok. All of these things are such a bummer and I hate giving it a bad review but two times bad= never again. On this last visit, they put us at a table right next to the kitchen and in the main traffic area, even though there were multiple tables open. It was loud, people were bumping us all night and it was so loud and not in a good way. Disappointing.

A little disappointed this visit. Service was excellent as always but the kitchen, not so much. Had the house 'favorite' and it was overcooked with beyond lumpy mashed potatoes. Others had pasta dishes which were nothing special but still good. We really like Café Molise and will chalk this time up to an off night.

We reserved a table for 2 well in advance for a Saturday night. We were seated at a terrible table and the service was just awful. The hostess seated us without a word of welcome and then a guy came and filled our water glasses again without a word. We waited 15 minutes then the manager came to take our order instead of our server. The manager was difficult to understand. A man put a plate with two rolls on the table without butter, again not speaking. Different persons served the salads and then the main course. My wife had to stop someone to ask for a refill of her tea and we were actually charged for the refill (waitress refused to take the refill off the bill). I was not asked if I wanted another drink after it was empty but, towards the end, the waitress asked if I wanted more water (da, just fill up the water glass when it's empty).
Nobody should be seated where we were since all the traffic walks right by the table and some rude people were actually congregating with their backsides touching the table while we were eating. We felt like an afterthought, the service was the worst we've experienced in a long time.
The food was pretty good but not worth the high prices.

The food was great, the building/decor was great....however, it was absolutely freezing in there! We all had to have our coats draped over our legs and we were still so cold. Every time that front door opened, which it did a lot, the frigid outside air would rush in. It made it difficult to really enjoy our meal. I would recommend this restaurant, but not when it's cold outside...because it'll be cold inside, too!
Other than they, service was great and the food was delicious.

Caffe Molise was very accommodating for my girlfriend's birthday--they let me set up some flowers and champagne before hand. The food was delicious as always. The service was great and our server even brought out the gift I had left at the restaurant (for my girlfriend) as a surprise. I love this place!

When we arrived at Caffe Molise and saw that we were seated next to a very large table, obviously for an office Christmas party, we were concerned. However, our servers handled our table and the big group efficiently. We thought the food nicely prepared and presented, the lasagna was really excellent, and the service good. We lucked out and got a good parking space, but I can envision times when parking could be an issue. I would definitely recommend reservations here, as they were booked solid when we were there on a Tuesday night.

Our server was very nice, but didn't come around often. In fact I had to leave my friend with the bill because we couldn't see our server and I had to leave for an appointment. I had a polenta dish that was really not very good at all, but my friend enjoyed the daily special he got.
A special evening with friends was great ...
A special evening with friends was greatly enhanced by our dinner at Caffe Molise. We enjoyed the food and the recommendations and dinner specials were excellent. It can be a little bit noise on a Saturday night, but that is also what lets you know how good the food and the fun is at Caffe Molise. We will go back many times with other friends and family and it is one of our favorites just a couple going out for an evening meal. Can't go wrong booking an appointment for a wonderful meal at Caffe Molise.

Whenever I m in Salt Lake City I make time for at least one meal at Cafe Molise, more if possible. It is my favorite place to eat. The food is excellent, usually a relative quite noise level and the service is great, with reasonable prices, and a good wine selection.

Caffe Molise never disappoints. As usual, the food and service was great. I always run into someone I know when I eat there. My only complaint is it tends to get chilly in the restaurant when the door opens on cold nights.

The food was ok. I had not been there since they remodeled and it was just tiny and cozy. They still had some of the same food from them and I decided to get sometime had had in the past and it could have been the end of the night but the sauce was minimal and the chicken was dry. I do however will go back and try it again before I give up completely.
