Best patio in town. Can get a bit crazy before an Eccles Theatre show.
Great food and great service.
Food was excellent-! Would come again-
Nice dinner before the show. Great service and tasty dinner. Had the pork tenderloin with fig sauce. It was spicy and rich.
The food was delicious. One of my favorite places to eat.
Limited wine list. Pork tenderloin dish very good.
Very good service. Food was outstanding. Every employee was very friendly.
We decided to try Cafe Molise with our friends who were visiting from out of town. They are picky eaters, and it always stresses me when I need to choose restaurants for them. Everything that was brought out was wonderful and our friends were so happy. They said they’d definitely return.
Best bruschetta I’ve ever had. Great place overall.
The food was delicious!! Will definitely
We love this place! Consistently good!
The food was fantastic and the wait staff was helpful and friendly.
I have dietary restrictions of dairy and gluten (not celiac), and generally find it difficult to eat out. My worries were soon dispelled, as our knowledgeable waitress gave me a low down on what dishes they could easily modify, were already within my restrictions, and also gave the option to create my own dish (with the ingredients they had on hand)! The food quality was great, and the prices quite reasonable. I will definitely be going back.
Great food and service. The only think was our table was near the front door and you’d feel a cold draft every couple of minutes.
The food was good, the service was prompt (felt a bit rushed) and easy to get to.
This is a well-established SLC restaurant, offering a menu of both a goodly number of classic Italian dishes, a selection of seafood, plus a few creative dishes. Service was very good, including hosting and reservations. Their location is, I think, newly relocated, and a good spot downtown. I'd recommend for lunch, dinner, and is worth a trip in for a weekend treat.
A fine Italian restaurant. Great food & friendly capable service. Conveniently located in downtown Salt Lake City.
Very nice private restaurant and alternative to chain Italian restaurants. We love the food and the service is awesome. It was too cold for outside dining but we like that option in good weather.
This was the cutest little Italian restaurant ever eaten at! My daughter and I ate there after the symphony, and the hostess was accommodating, our waiter was amazing, and the food was excellent.
This is my second review because this place is always amazing!! Our waitress was lovely and the food is always perfect! We can't wait to see the new building!
Wonderful food at a competitive price. The atmosphere is nice indoors but the outdoor dining is fabulous.
Truly lovely. We informed the waitress that we needed to be out in about an hour and 15 minutes to catch a show at the Eccles theater. She let the kitchen know as well and we arrived in perfect time. We were still able to enjoy our evening and experience without feeling rushed. Would love to be able to relax without a time constraint next time.
Nice spot for dinner before seeing the the evening theater (Eccles), they share the same parking lot.
Service from entering the restaurant to departure was great. Our waiter did a great job of service without being intrusive. All courses were served at the correct temperature and were delicious! We were given all the time we wanted to talk without being rushed out for another customer.
One of my favorite places to take out of town guests to in downtown SLC.
Excellent!!!!!! Great service and great food. We had an excellent server who gave wonderful selections!
The food was great, the service was okay, The girls in the front could've been a little bit more friendly. I believe that first impression is important. When we arrived, 2 girls in the front didn't greed us until I said we have a reservation. But, I get that alot eating downtown Salt Lake City, because I'm a minority. Than the waitress wasn't friendly at all, I think she was having a bad day. I get it, but we have to ask about everything, maybe she should've take the day off.
The only reason we stayed because I was bragging about the food to my husband and family.
We had a group of 15 for a surprise birthday party and the restaurant did a great job accommodating our big group. Our waiter (sorry his name escapes me) was fantastic, was on top of all our requests including splitting the bill 10 ways. The food was good but honestly the service made it this evening. Thank you Cafe Molise!
Good to go
I used Open table to make reservation and received confirmation by email yet the restaurant had NO record of my reservation when we arrived !!!! Thankfully they were able to sort out a table for us. Food was very good staff friendly.
Great service. Good food. Hope they don’t lose any of the great atmosphere when they move.
The food is AMAZING!! You need to try the butternut squash ravioli, it is an appetizer but I was tempted to order another plate and eat it as my main course. Everything else was delish too. My husband and I kept eating off each other’s plates and loving every bite. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We missed the live music but we will be back soon to catch it.
Have dined here several times and have always been pleased with the food and service!
I had the Chicken Marsala that was excellent. My only complaint was that the busing staff was a little aggressive and tried to remove my plate while I was still eating. I spoke up and kept my plate. My colleague did not and they removed her plate before she was finished eating. It was a weekday night with open tables. Why rush your patrons?
We had a business dinner at Cafe Molise and it was perfect! The food was amazing, the service was excellent and the environment was comfortable!
Really enjoyed our meal and he service was very good.
Nice setting. Great service. Large portions, good for splitting. Reasonably priced. But the food was noting special.
My wife’s scallops were not cooked as requested. It took 20 minutes to have it corrected and in the mean time my dinner became cold. The manager took care of everything.
Caffe Molise was fabulous. The menu is great, the daily specials were amazing, and they have a fabulous wine list. What more could you want? Well, you might want a fabulous wait staff, a great chef in the kitchen, and very comfortable ambiance - and you get that too.
Highly recommend this local gem!
Even though we are from SLC, my husband and I decided to stay downtown because we had an event that was going to end close to midnight. We walked to Cafe Molise from our hotel. What a lovely place with delicious food! We both had the Mediterranean salad as well as the scallops with pasta. Loved the brick walls, and the art, the quiet atmosphere, and the service. We will go back and we will recommend to friends.
