Italian
At Molino's Ristorante, owner and native Italian Kanuccio Purisico captivates diners with a menu of mouthwatering Northern Italian fare. Dishes of calamari fritti, and clams oreganato entice appetites, and burbling waterfalls beckon outdoors as patrons find themselves in sunny Adriatic here in beautiful Bonita Springs. Our culinary team dazzle guests with authentic dishes such as the lambata di vitello alla griglia, a grilled veal chop accessorized with hot cherry peppers and mushrooms, or the rollatine melanzane, ricotta cheese rolled into thinly sliced eggplant and topped with tomato sauce. For those searching for ocean-fresh seafood try our salmone onde e terra, a cut of broiled salmon luxuriously lounging in a rich cognac sauce with a posse of peas, prosciutto, and mushrooms.

After reading other reviews, we decided to make a reservation and try it out for ourselves. As other have written, the host/manager was a bit rough, and maybe a bit disorganized as he couldn't find our name on the reservation list - which was handwritten(?). No big deal - we were seated outside as requested at a nice table on the walkway - not under the canopy with the heaters. It was a good seat and we were able to watch everyone coming and going - apparently, if you are known to the host/manager, you get the seating under the canopy. Our waiter came over immediately and took our drink orders. We had wanted to order an appetizer then have time to look at the menu, but were told we had to order all at once - but take our time. I understand that it was a Friday night, but I hate being rushed. I never know what I want for an entree until the appy is served - what if the appy is too big, filling, etc. Anyways, we did as instructed and ordered everything at the same time. We were done with our meal within an hour. The food is fantastic and filling. For us, it is not an everyday, or even every week or month type of place. Kind of pricey, which is ok every now and then.

Amazing everything! Kenny treats you like family, while his loyal staff takes care of you almost as good as your own mother does. Favorite Italian Restaraunt in SW Florida. Truly amazing!

Coming from Massachusetts, this is very North End. Food is pure Italian, served by charming waiters who sound direct from Italy. Bolognese is our test for true Italian and theirs does not fail. Veal Piccata so tender. Turning into regulars.

First off the tables outside were not 6 ft apart. Our waiter could barely understand English ....
The food and the service was not as good as in the past 4 visits.

What upset me the most was I had half of my dinner left and asked to take it home. Well, as it turned out they threw it away. Instead of offering to make me a half order of what I had ordered they gave us two cannolis which I did. It even want. The whole idea of eating half my dinner is that I am watching my weight. I need desert like a hole in the head
