My wife and I decided to celebrate our valentine's dinner with another friend couple of ours. We decided to go to Molinari's and was not disappointed. I called the restaurant a week or so before Feb 14 and requested a table for 4 at 6:30 PM. There was no issue getting the table and I was also told that we... More

Lobster pizza and duck fettuccine are amazing but everything here is simply amazing. We are never disappointed and plan on coming back again and again.

This restaurant is on a different level than any other. I used to brag that we have been to Italy many times and this place reminds me of the food. Now I have to say this is the place we come to Before we plan our trips to Italy. The education you receive about the food and wine is amazing.... More

Dined at Molinari's before a show, had been trying to get a table there for awhile. Definitely need reservations, it is small and intimate, the kind of place that you want to take your time and enjoy your meal. The menu is brief, everything locally sourced and delicious! The pasta is homemade and sticks to your teeth perfectly, the Bolognese... More

I absolutely love this restaurant! As, a vegan they go out of their way to make me the most amazing meal. I never have to second guess or ask numerous times if something is vegan. Even the bread it vegan! My boyfriend and I had a lovely New Years Eve dinner here. We both looked at one another and said... More

We go to Molinaris fairly regularly and have since their opening 5 years ago. The meal we ate there on a recent Monday was one of the best we have ever enjoyed there. The orecchiette entree (the first pasta dish listed in the pasta section) was outstanding; the sauce was luscious. This is a vegetarian entree, and it is absolutely... More

Hadn't been in a while, enjoyed our visit. We had a large group and everyone was happy with their meals from age 10 to 80. Kids devoured everything from the focaccia bread to gelato/sorbet. The sides were excellent for the steak and salmon dinners. Salmon was a little over-cooked. Waiter was super friendly and accommodating. Only issue was when I... More

This restaurant exceeded our expectations with both food and service. The woman at the front desk at Sayre Mansion recommended it. It is a short drive or walk from there. We arrived on a Monday night with no reservation and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is quiet and sedate. Even though the restaurant was fairly full, the noise level was... More

The girl in the front desk (wears glasses) appeared annoyed for no apparent reason. She asked us to wait for "3 minutes" to be seated in a restaurant with several available seats. We didn't think much of it. 10 minutes later we asked to be seated again thinking an honest oversight might have caused a delay. The same girl said... More
