Molto Bene Italian Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Our table of eight shared

    Dined on 4/12/2013
    Our table of eight shared the calamari, zucchini, and bruschetta to start. The calamari was heavily breaded. The lasagna was the best dish with the chicken piccata a close second. Hard to find the meat in the pasta bolognese.

    This is a small restaurant with an inviting warm and cozy atmosphere. The staff is fabulous, friendly and proficient. The food is out of this world. I have NEVER had fettucine alfredo as good as they make here. The chicken marsala was tender and flavorful, the lasagna was fantastic.

    What a delightful neighborhood find. We enjoyed a great salad with goat cheese and marcona almonds, the seared scallops and pasta bolognese. The space is small and somewhat cramped, we only hope they do well enough to relocate to larger surroundings. We will be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Extremely disappointed. The tables were very close together so I felt like I was too close to other customers. The appetizer was fine. The salad was below par. The "steak" was below average (factor in the price and it was very poor). The dessert was plain vanilla cupcakes with icing on top. They were probably bought at Sam's or HEB. We found ourselves waiting a long time between courses. We were seated at our table for over 2 hours. I usually roll with average food. But when my bill is $119 for the food alone - for two people - it was just very disappointing.

    A real find in Missouri City. This tiny restaurant is perfect if you are tired of the chains, the noise, and the mass produced food. The service is top notch with very personable waiters and the ambiance is quiet enough to actually have a conversation. The bruschetta is the best I have ever had and the Portobello risotto was perfectly creamy. I did not notice an abundance of salt in the food (a major dining out complaint). We attended on a sat night when live music was presented (2 men with a bass and a guitar, one of whom sang) and the smallness of the venue turned it into a romantic after dinner little bistro. The owner visited our table and later, we received 2 glasses of wine on the house. A nice gesture for 2 satisfied customers.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The place was real small, I'm assuming it was to make us feel cozy, however it didn't really give me that feeling because we were seated by the door and I felt bad for many customers because they'd come in and if they didn't make a reservation, they were turned away since there wasn't any tables available. It took over an hour for our entrees and I was starving so I asked for more bread, the waiter came back a long time later, but when he got to the table he held on to it and asked another waiter, "where's the bread for 2?" and then he goes "this is bread for 3", and then he said "wait another second since this is bread for 3, i'll be back." When he came back with the bread there were only 4 pieces. That felt a bit cheap.

    Food is good, not outstanding, yet we had no complaints. Service was fantastic though. Suggest a more robust wine list and menu and tone down the lighting to make it more romantic. That said, it's a great neighborhood gem especially if you live in Sienna Plantation.

    This was our second visit. Service was excellent. The bread and scallop appetizer were very good. Our party of three had the spaghetti and meatballs, chicken marsala, and the fettucine di mare. The meatballs and chicken were a bit dry, and the fettucine noodle paired with the seafood was a bit heavy and would go better with a lighter pasta. We had such a good first time experience that we will return again. Really nice quaint restaurant to enjoy a quiet dinner!

    The food was tasteless from appetizers to the meal. We had scallop appetizer and an asparagus appetizer....the scallops and asparagus were small and over cooked. I had risotto with seafood and it was the worst ever. My husband had the lasagna which was ok but lacked seasoning. The wine list had nice variety.

    Small restaurant. Nice, expensive wine list but they also have BYOB. Service was very good. Wait for the food was rather long, particularly since it is a small restaurant (call ahead for reservations), but worth the wait. The calamari was overdone, but the chicken marsala and spaghetti bolognese excellent. Very nice flavor. Will definitely return to this restaurant.

    We live in Sienna and this was our first visit. We like to support local businesses. We had a reservation and we were seated almost immediately. But it took at least 15 minutes to get someone to come over to our table, my husband had signaled the waitstaff we needed service. Our order was taken and we had to ask for bread 3 times and ask for our drink refills each time. We ordered calamari for our appetizer and it was over cooked and the portion was very small for $9.95. Our entrees were good. I liked the marina sauce. We eat out often and I must admit I was disappointed in our visit to your restaurant. I had really hoped it would be as good as Corelli's down on Hwy 6 at Williams Trace. We might try again,,,,maybe just a bad night

    The restaurant was empty when we arrived and were offered a table at the front of the entrance although we made a reservation which should not have made a difference. The restaurant could have been cleaner as there was an abundance of dust and crumbs on and around the seats, window frames, and floor. An hour in the restaurant and our water glasses were never refilled. Service was adequate and if improved could really change the experience. Generally speaking the food was good but not great, leaving you a question on why you would return.

    How wonderful to have a great Italian restaurant in the neighborhood and not have to drive into Sugar Land! My veal piccata was excellent! I only rated the noise as moderate because we had an early evening reservation and there were only 2 other tables and we were seated right next to another couple along the wall as you enter. It was impossible not to hear every word being said. It did not make sense to seat us in that manner at that time. In hindsight, we could have asked to be moved but we went with the flow. Anyway, they've done a great job with the space and the food and wine were excellent. Absolutely worth a try and we'll be back!!

    Nice tiny (maybe 10 tables?) local Italian with very standard Italian menu (pasta, picatta, marsala, etc...) Our food was good and reasonably priced. Reasonable wine list as well, many $20-30 bottles. The staff was maybe not the most professional, but very friendly. No need to drive into Houston or go to a "chain" when you have good locally owned italian food right in the neighborhood. We'll be back

    Outstanding food at reasonable prices. Comfortable and cozy, the type of place you can linger over a glass of wine and don't feel rushed. It is small so reservations are a must otherwise you will have a wait.
