Diner Reviews
  • "We took a chance on this place and we were deliriously happy we did. It's a small establishment with only a few tables, which allowed us to actually hear each other talk (a rarity these days). Lenee was our server and she was warm, welcoming and very helpful. We discovered some wonderful new Italian wines, and the food was outstanding. The artichoke appetizer and roasted asparagus with burrata were both perfectly prepared and delicious. As entrees we had the rockfish and the tagliatelle, and they were both excellent. It was also very reasonably priced. We will definitely be coming back."

  • "Happen to look for an Italian restaurant on Yelp and Enoteca Molinari came up as a 4 star rate. Made reservation on Open Table and we were able to get preservation quite quickly. We did wait for a few minutes once we arrived but found the ambience, food and service surprisingly good in a ll categories. Would recommend it to one and all. Certainly authentic food."

  • "the plates are on the smaller side, so order a few - you can definitely afford to do so given the prices - we ordered 5 dishes and all were amazing"

  • "Truly a neighborhood gem, you can't do wrong to eat at the marble bar or at one of tables for flavorful Italian dishes. The staff are attentive and warm and even the chef is not afraid to give you a smile as he whips up the delicate dishes."

  • "This tiny restaurant has very good food and interesting choices for wine. Great for a special occasion or a quick meal after work. A good addition to Rockridge dining."

  • "Had a lovely dinner there. The restaurant is tiny and intimate. Staff was great. My husband couldn't decide which wine to order, so they brought him two generous tasting options. Food was innovative and delicious. The caprese salad was fabulous! We'll definitely return."

  • "The food was pretty good and the staff was very nice, but also very inattentive. Considering how small this place is, it seems like it would be easier to keep the water and wine glasses full, clear the plates, wipe away crumbs and take orders in a more timely manner. A little more attention to detail from the wait staff would make this place a neighborhood gem."

  • "This is a very small wine bar and Italian bistro that does get crowded, but not loud. The serving staff are among the best around. Staff are really attentive and helpful, very friendly, and very knowledgeable and have great recommendations re the wine list. This list is all Italian and includes about 2 dozen wines by the glass. Many are from small producers that are unusual on wine lists, and many are organic. The menu is short and changes frequently. There are about a half dozen antipasti options, 4 or 5 salad and soup choices, and about 5 or 6 Larger (not large) dishes. The food is delicious. Our choices included local halibut, bistecca, the tagliatelle al ragu and the fried zucchini flowers . Prices are very reasonable."
