Enjoyed a fantastic dinner with a group of friends while in town for a volleyball tournament. The restaurant accommodated us with a last minute reservation (thank you open table), the food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. Looking forward to our next trip back to SLC and this darling restaurant!

It was an excellent spot for great food and atmosphere while moms unwound after watching hours and hours of their daughters playing volleyball. David was our waiter (twice) and managed of our picky requests with a smile and "absolutely". He even helped push out a woman's car from the snow, who was parked out front!

NOISY. Server never came back to check on food and drinks after serving the dishes. Food average - nothing special.

We loved the pork tenderloin, brucetta, and gnocci as well as our delicious cocktails and wine. The live music was awesome, although I wish they would have played longer into the evening. Our reservation was for 7:45pm and we were initially seated in the adjoining room, but asked to be seated closer to the music, which was thankfully accommodated. Our waiter was sweet, knowledgable, and our food was so good. We would love to make Caffe Molise our go to for future special occasions and evenings out.

Had a very good experience at Caffe Molise. After we were seated a very large and loud group of teenage volleyball players were seated next to us. The staff went out of their way to get us a different and much quieter table. The manager was very apologetic and even comped our appetizer. The food was very good and the service was wonderful and very attentive. We will go back.

Good Italian food, but not amazing (we are spoiled and have lived in Boston, which has the North End and also in Providence, which has Federal Hill). We got the mushroom polenta for an appetizer. It was good, but not amazing. Flavors were a little flat, and everything just tasted like red sauce. I got the pappardelle al sugo, which was very good. The homemade pasta was nice. My husband got the salmon pasta dish, which he enjoyed. Best part of the meal was the dessert, which was a chocolate mousse cake.

Started closing up early especially for Valentine's day. Food was over salted. May as well have been olive garden.

The food is very delicious and worth it. I’d recommend the butternut squash ravioli. They connect to Wine Bar so there is a great selection of cocktails, wine and beer. I highly recommmend this restaurant.

Rather large restaurant with several separate rooms. This creates an odd, disjointed feeling if you are the only ones seated in one of those rooms. Street face of the restaurant is lacking, as is the entrance. I realize that is a costly change to make but the proximity to Marriott and Hilton and convention center should create enough business opportunity to help justify an upgrade.
We felt quite hurried at each step of our dining. Upon arrival we were rushed to our table with no greeting. Our sever approached and never greeted us, just asked for a beverage order. Next, serving our entrée's to the wrong patron(why ask if you are not going to listen to who ordered what?). Finally, they removed the plates before we were through eating. ???
The food was good: salads, salmon and ravioli were ordered and we agreed we would order again.

Server was excellent. He gave us enough space for discussion and was there right when we wanted to order. Very attentive and knowledgeable.
Food was delicious. We all joined the clean plate club. Skipped dessert but a few sounded amazing.
