Good food. A reasonable variety, but more of the menu is taken up with alcohol than food. Some eateries have a menu with too many choices. This menu may have too few. prices are a bit high, but the quality is very good. Good location. Acceptable noise level. Great service.

Delicious food and a great historic building that sets a great atmosphere. It could have been a bit more generous on the shrimp and bread.

After being there for 30 minutes, we still did not receive the rolls we had ordered. They brought rotting lemons to have with our water, and one of the plates they brought for our rolls that never came was visibly dirty, the waitress did not replace the plate. We ended up having to go somewhere else where we could eat cleanly.

Paul our waiter was amazingly relatable. Michael the wait staff was extremely attentive to our water glasses and taking away used plates. Paul made a special effort to bring a candle and dessert to our table for my mother in law. We loved the outdoor ambiance and option to dine al fresco- this is the main reason we chose this restaurant to feel comfortable during the pandemic. We missed the jazz night at 7p.m. When we called to inquire about the jazz, no one informed us about the time the musicians were performing - that is the only downside to our experience. This restaurant had a volunteer waiver for COVID awareness and a digital temperature check and all staff members were consistent in mask wearing. Will definitely visit again!

Nothing but positive from start to finish. Food, wine, and service were 5/5. The new building has real personality. Lastly, they are being very safe in regards to COVID protocols.

This is not your typical Italian restaurant. All the food is unique, each recipe something you've never tasted before. The service is perfect - outstanding descriptions of the food, very attentive, and very friendly (Paul did a good job). I would definitely recommend this place, and you will definitely be on the edge of your seat for every course - appetizer, main course, and desert.

We came here for my birthday. Our server was nice and respectful— he also wasn’t overbearing. The food was ok. I ordered a chicken entree but should have stuck to my usual choice of the gnocchi or other pasta.

Great location in Downtown Salt Lake City. Within walking distance from The Grand American Hotel. Great to see they take precautions with allowing folks in by taking temperature using a contactless camera. Hostess was very accommodating with providing outside seating for my wife and me. Outside atmosphere/ambience was fantastic with patio heaters and was very comfortable. Wait staff was phenomenal and the dinner specials were great. Had scallops as appetizer, which was recommended by the wait staff and they were fantastic. Both of our meals were very good as well. Great selection of wine and beer too!

Went there based on reviews which I thought were positive. Not my experience. Even though we had a reservation we were told we would have to wait 15-30 minutes. We were seated across from a loud party of 12 who were split between two tables of 6 but not anywhere close to 6 feet apart. Service was chaotic and very slow. Food was mediocre at best. Also for a restaurant named Caffe Molise, you would think they would have food offerings similar to the Molise region of Italy. Will not return.

Service was great until our main dish came super late and slightly cold. Server asked if we wanted a free dessert, we don’t eat sugar and said no. She said ok, bummer. And walked off.

My first time at this location. Love the ambience during COVID - roomy for distancing yet warm and full of atmosphere. Loved the accordion soloist playing italian classics on our dining night.
Everything was really solid. Nice menu, food was very good, waiter was friendly and attentive.
