Molino's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Have been to Molino’s on numerous occasions & have always enjoyed my dinner & food experience. Unfortunately on Saturday evening the server spilled my dinner all over my white shorts & shirt. Was going out to a concert after dinner so had to go out with totally stained clothes after dinner. No accommodation was made after the mishap. Would have thought out of common courtesy they would have discounted my meal or another glass of wine. Nothing was offered other than an apology. I would think about going there again after this recent experience. Have already washed my shorts 3 times & they are permanently stained (ie ruined).
I know it was Valentine's Day, and the restaurant was busy, but service was a little slow, and noise level loud. Portion size of Lobster ravioli was small, the two who had we're still hungry. The kitchen not accommodating with dietary request. The waiter did take off one of the drinks on the bill because the chef would not accommodate.
On a positive note the menu had a nice selection to order from. Would try this place again but maybe when not so busy.
Most of what we ordered was fairly good. But one member of our party ordered the grilled veal chop. This entree was one of the most expensive on the menu. It was tough & almost inedible. When we explained this to our waiter he said he would tell the chef. He then disappeared & ignored us. Another waiter came by & asked us how our meal was. He responded the same way. Our waiter tried to convince us to order a lot of desserts & drinks after dinner but we don’t eat much of that. When we asked, he said the chef would take care of it. He took off the charge for the one ice cream we ordered. We are not complainers, but we have ordered veal chop in many Naples area restaurants & this was the worst we have ever had & the restaurant’s response was inadequate.
This was our second visit to Molino’s. Both times we were quickly seated and received immediate attention. We ordered the Cesar salad and mozzarella/tomato salads for starters. Both delicious. My husband had the veal parmigiana which he loved. I had the spaghetti with meatballs and sausage. The pasta sauce could have used a bit more salt and that was quickly remedied with the table salt shaker. For desert my husband had coconut sorbet. All in all our experience was quite enjoyable and we will return. Next time I would try the outdoor seating.
We dined with two friends who are very selective about what they eat. Despite being very busy the waiter worked with them to create special dishes that weren't on the menu that would meet their needs. The custom dishes were excellent and so we're the dishes that my husband and I chose off the menu.
We had a great dinner experience at Molino’s. Shrimp cocktail app had very large shrimp, delicious. Entrees included chicken parmigiana clams linguini and veal in lemon sauce. All of them excellent. Very large portions. Service also was very good, attentive and courteous. We will return!
We have never had a bad meal here and we have been frequenting Molino's for years.
It's wonderful to be welcomed back with a shake of the hand or a kiss on the cheek, and trust me when I say we only go a few times a year. The food is consistently good. Love the Molino's salad for lunch. We had a mustard and walnut encrusted grouper with wilted spinach for a dinner entree. Amazing!
As is the grilled octopus, which is an appetizer, but I order for an entree for dinner with a vegetable or salad.
One of our absolute favorites!
My experience with the food and ambiance has always been very good. For some reason this visit, our waiter (Frank) had a strange need to belittle his customers. It’s a shame that his behavior so diminished our experience.
Will come again but request outside of Frank’s tables.
