Been here many times and everything is usually outstanding. However, I no longer am crazy about the atmosphere without the white table cloths. It's a bit mundane like that. The service was excellent and most food was great, but the pork tenderloin was overcooked.

I was disappointed. The food was fine but lukewarm. The space is great but the ambience was off (tables don't fit, plates don't seem to have been "chosen" (maybe acquired)?). Things just didn't come together well. Food came out quickly and then the waiter let us sit for a long while after we were done without clearing the table.

Caffe Molise has a relatively new and larger location that I feel is great for groups. The large open floor plan (albeit beautiful room) is not very intimate for a dinner for 2-3. However, I do think the patio would be a great option during warmer months. Service was prompt and courteous. I would recommend it for a medium to large party but not as much for a small, intimate dinner (at least in the main dining area).

This was our first time and being new to SLC we were a little apprehensive about a new place but it was perfect to celebrate our anniversary.
It was quiet. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable.
My only suggestions are two. The greeter was very frazzled and seemed distracted. The bar should be open for waiting guests who arrive early. Finially the kid clearing the table MUST Attempt to clear only after the last diner has finished. He kept trying to take plates at mid meal. But over all it was great.

It was a delightful evening on the patio. Food was excellent. Butternut squash ravioli was terrific.
Because I had used Open Table to book the reservation they had my phone number to call me and let me know that I had left my sweater. That was really appreciated!

We had a reservation at 2 PM and when we arrived with the hostess we were immediately presented with an unpleasant experience. The hostess was not welcoming at all and was rushing us (later to find out the restaurant was closing soon). Our waiter took our order and also rushed us and was not attentive. When the food arrived my pasta was warm on top but very cold on the bottom. I did not bring it up to the waiter since he came to check on us when we were nearly done with our meal. We couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Would definitely not commend this place unless you are coming to see the historic building.

I had the scallop appetizer special - scallops in brown butter sauce with arugula and the polenta funghi appetizer for an entree. My dad had the tomato mozzarella appetizer and a braised beef special drizzled with balsamic glaze. We both loved everything. Service was very fast and friendly. One of our new favorites.
