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.

    The host was incredibly rude. He argued and shouted at us. Very unpleasant. The food was ordinary but the waiters were friendly and attentive. We will not go back. Felt insulted by the unwelcome reception

    We were here on vacation and looking for a good Italian place and we’re very impressed at Molino’s. I had a seafood pasta with a pink sauce. I was wondering about the sauce and our good waiter explained it is a mix of the red and white sauces. Excellent food and service. Prices were reasonable.

    Very nice restaurant with excellent service. We were seated outside and it started to rain. They immediately found us a table under cover and helped us resettle. The food was very good. A little pricey, but it's better on days you can use their coupon!

    This is one of our absolutely favorite restaurants in the Naples/Bonita area. The food and service is outstanding. The servers are all wonderful. On this occasion, Sebastian was marvelous. I am Italian, and this is real Italian. We are already planning our next visit. Thank you everyone at Molino’s.

    We were pleasantly surprised and delighted that our favorite table was available, so we anticipated a pleasant dining experience. NOT! We each ordered the tri colore salad, while my wife ordered the sea bass and I ordered the branzino. I also ordered a bottle of white wine and emphasized to our server that we like our white very cold. The salads came, overly drenched in dressing. My wife's sea bass was prepared correctly, but the winter vegetables were swimming in sauce and overpowered the fish. My branzino was also prepared correctly, but it was NOT served in a broth as noted on the menu. The branzino sauce was so thick that it would have been an excellent sauce, had I ordered pasta. Now to the wine.. it was presented chilled, but our server left the bottle on the table instead of putting it into a wine cooler or ice bucket. She also failed to pour additional wine into our glasses. Perhaps she was not properly trained on serving white wines. To try to salvage the evening, we ordered cheesecake and coffee. The cheesecake, nowhere near the quality of Junior's in Brooklyn, was frozen, so we had "cheesecake ice cream". This was the most underwhelming dining experience that we have ever had at Molino's or any other area restaurant. With so many excellent restaurants in the area, it is highly unlikely that we will return.

    Our experience was pleasant but considering it was our 50th Wedding Anniversary, it would have been nice to have been offered a complimentary dessert or some acknowledgement. It was on my Open Table reservation and I mentioned it to the head waiter when I requested a different table which was not, by the way, received favorably although we were seated at a different table. Well overall, the food was good, the ambience was nice and we enjoyed our evening.

    Noise level is really energetic inside the restaurant, but sitting out on the porch or under the pergola it is nice. Their chicken piccata wasn't as good as the last time I ate there - maybe just a bad day.

    Well seasoned staff caters to your every need. Beautiful white linen table cloths accented with stunning red napkins makes the inside dining quite festive. Casual outdoor, covered dining is also an option. Food is consistently very good, especially the fig duck.

    Wonderful dinner. Started with Clams Oreganato. My husband had Rigatoni Bolognese with a side of two meatballs and he stated that it was delicious. I had Vitello alla Parmigano (Veal Parm) and it was the best that I have ever had. Very tender and delicious. Our server was wonderful. Thank you for another enjoyable meal. We will be back!
