A word from Molino's Ristorante
At Molino's Ristorante, owner and native Italian Kanuccio Purisico captivates diners with a menu of mouthwatering Northern Italian fare. Dishes of calamari fritti, and clams oreganato entice appetites, and burbling waterfalls beckon outdoors as patrons find themselves in sunny Adriatic here in beautiful Bonita Springs. Our culinary team dazzle guests with authentic dishes such as the lambata di vitello alla griglia, a grilled veal chop accessorized with hot cherry peppers and mushrooms, or the rollatine melanzane, ricotta cheese rolled into thinly sliced eggplant and topped with tomato sauce. For those searching for ocean-fresh seafood try our salmone onde e terra, a cut of broiled salmon luxuriously lounging in a rich cognac sauce with a posse of peas, prosciutto, and mushrooms.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Nice restaurant and easy to get in. Not as busy as many of the other restaurants. I ordered Fettucini with salmon in a pink sauce which was very good but my husband ordered the spaghetti with meatball and sausage and it came with a quarter of a sausage. He also had meat sauce as a special request which was a good thing or it would not have been enough. Service is very good though and hopefully they will survive with all of the changes going on in the shopping plaza where they are located."

  • "We were caught in the craziness of waiting in line for dinner in season at another restaurant , when I pulled out the phone and used open table to find this great little place. I got a table within 15 minutes of booking it. The decor was very nice we were seated at a nice table for two. Our waiter was a true gentleman, and the service was great! The food was very good, we both ordered from the specials of the day menu and were pleasantly surprised. If you haven't tried Molino's you should. When we are back in town we will be back."

  • "There are many inexpensive Italian pizza shops and restaurants in the area, but this restaurant is the real McCoy! The atmosphere was lovely, and our waiter Luigi was right from Italy!! Nice to hear Italian accents when you are imagining yourself in Italy! The food was excellent."

  • "We sat on their outdoor patio. Nice spot and we liked that we could bring our dog. However, food was average at best and very over priced for the quality. Cannot recommend."

  • "We have been going to Molinos for 6 years now and each time they make us feel like we are guests in their homes. From Kenny to Luigi they make you feel like family. The stuffed chicken special is outstanding as are every app on the menu. Best thing is they will make you anything you want if you just ask. Don't forget to enjoy a chilled limoncello before you go."

  • "We have been to Molino's many times before and this is the first time we were seated outside. We discovered very soon that is was hard to get a waiter to discover us! Finally, the bus person noticed our distress and really cranked things up..our waiter came, bread magically appeared and was replenished, and he even told us that our orders were put ahead of others because they knew we waited so long. I am not sure what is exactly correct in that regard, but once Al noticed us the evening went smoothly and the food was fabulous! Next time, however, we will sit inside!"

  • "Ambiance and wine list supports well defined menu featuring some favorites and specials. Food was excellent and served timely and service was very aware of diners needs and returned to table multiple times during dinner to determine if any of the diners at our table of 4 required any additional service. The veal chop and dover sole are superb!!"

  • "We attended Molino's on a Thursday evening in season. Energetic atmosphere which did translate to noisy, but not in a bad way. The high ceilings and lack of room dividers made group conversation a challenge for the hearing impaired with hearing aids. Wait staff was there but not overbearing. We all enjoyed our food and would definitely return."

  • "Hard to find in a dark 1/2 empty retail Not a " Greeter" The" Hostess" started off asking us if we wanted to eat inside or out. Not familiar with restaurant we paused for a second and she said "follow me" We followed thinking she was going to show us the patio section but she sat us at the 1st available table in a LOUD dining room. I received a warmer welcome from my X wife in divorce court. Then we met our waiter who wanted us to order 2 min after giving us our menu. The rush was on! After asking him if he could recommend an appetizer which he couldn't .he told me to " read what is on the menu" I asked about a salad and he took the menu out of my hand and read it. CHECK PLEASE! We Left Spend a few extra $ & try Angelina's"

  • "We have never had a bad meal at Molino's. Nick is our favorite waiter! The staff and owner are fantastic!! The food is awesome so many dishes to choose from! Veal Parm is my favorite and Dover Sole is wonderful!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The atmosphere is quite nice, but a little noisy for what I prefer in a romantic dinner setting. The food was excellent, with the star actually the red sauce that was liberally applied to the veal dish and was generously applied. The appetizer of tomatores with mozzarella could have used more balsamic, but what was there was quite tasty. The waiter was good, and I will definitely be back to further explore the menu."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was very good but the Greeter was less than friendly and the waiter was taking care of too many tables so we were left to sit and wait between each drink and then dinner. Things have changed over the last year and not for the better. I hope they get there act back to the way it was a couple years ago."

  • "I realize that it was Valentines Day, however we have dined there before with a very different atmosphere. first we planned ahead and made a reservation. When we got there it was like being served at McDonalds. We were rushed out to the outside area . We asked not be seated there but our request was ignored. The food was brought to us within minutes and you could tell it was prepare well ahead of time as the meat was dry and it was covered with sauce to camouflage it. It was evident that the number objective was to serve as many as they could that night regardless of the quality of the food. They lost me and I did dine there year round."

  • "Molino's is near our house in florida so we go there a few times during the winter season. The food is very good - pasta fresh - but does not always look gourmet when it comes out. The salads are deicious - the molino's salad especially - split in in two to share. My husband ordered the spaghetti with meatballs and sausage but was disappointed to find only one meatball and a half a sausage come out on the plate. Expected at least a full sausage. Always busy and reasonable prices will continue to bring people to Molino's."

  • "Prompt service in an elegant dining room conducive to good conversation! Limited wine list at reasonable prices, salmon, veal, and red snapper entres were excellent Choices for diners in our group. Caesar salads were ordinary, and more salad selections Would be a welcome menu improvement."

Has the menu been revamped?? Food and service were very good making for a very pleasant evening with friends. We will be back here more often."
