This is like someone faking a fine Italian restaurant. The bread rolls are from the grocery store and the salad had no dressing or flavor. All lettuce spines. It’s like Mormons trying to do Italian. I’m from New Jersey so I know fine Italian cuisine. This is faking it but people in Utah probably don’t know the difference.

This patio is SO dreamy! 10/10. I love that it’s covered, and spacious, and really it’s just perfect. The service was amazing. From our server to the crew bussing tables… We were very impressed. Also, need to mention the cocktail I had because I will be thinking about it non stop. It was some type of spritzer, and wow. The food was of course delicious too! Great serving sizes. Loved everything we got!

The food was terrific (“this ….. was …. outstanding!!” to quote my mother in law gushing over the chicken with Roquefort (??) cheese sauce), Matthew was attentive, and the bus staff was friendly and barely noticeable. All in all, a wonderful family dinner. Already recommended the restaurant to a local friend.

Food was really good and we loved our meals. The only complaint we had is that we had to wait for refills of our wine and soda for about 10 minutes. The restaurant decor was nice and the ambiance was good. Our favorite aspect of the experience was the food, it was amazing. We will definitely dine here again.

As I saw in previous reviews, most appetizers are excellent. What was truly difficult was picking a main dish and unfortunately I may have picked wrong. The noodles are undercooked and the sauce is not very tasteful. I avoided other dishes as other reviews warned their chicken and pork are dry. The service was great and I loved the aesthetics.

We had the misfortune to have a reservation at the same time that the restaurant had a 40+ party, and we were both seated upstairs. As a result, our service was very slow. We didn’t mind except for the fact that the entrees were warm and the sauces were congealed, and his was disappointing. Our waitress was efficient but she needed some additional help.

Very disappointing evening. We were a party of 2, seated upstairs. Overall, it felt like Caffe Molise was trying to be a fancy, upscale place but they just missed the mark due to poor service and a TON of upselling. I ordered a glass of prosecco and was served a glass of Moscato. When I got the correct drink, it was in the wrong glass. If it's a classy place and I'm paying $12 a glass, please serve it correctly. Salad orders were also inaccurate. Our server was slow and kept trying to upsell. "Can I get you some more rolls?" at $1 each. We watched her do that kind of thing at a LOT of tables. Food was pretty good, but not as good as other meals we've had. Staff was confused (there seemed to be a few bussers just wandering around) and everything took a really long time. Experience did not match what was advertised.

Everything was just sort of average and uninspired. Our waiter Chris was great. I’m all about the bread and we got some cold rolls that looked like they came out of a bag. The building is beautiful. The food….not so much.

We stopped at By The Glass before dinner (owned by the same people and directly below in the same building) and really enjoyed it.

For dinner, we sat on the shaded patio with a gurgling fountain nearby. The food is amazing! The wine list and house cocktails are unmatched. The service is fantastic!

Great location too!

Just go.

We made a reservation to dine on the outdoor patio which is nice and shaded. Unfortunately we were seated on the South facing balcony in the early evening heat (98 degrees). It made what would have otherwise been a great experience nearly unbearable. The food and service was terrific other than the establishment making the choice to seat us in a different area than we reserved.
