Good food, good service, very friendly. Def go back
Lovely intimate space but not impressed what I ordered. Soup was tasty, but much too expensive for small bowl of thin broth with a few veggies floating within. Salad was just large leaves of lettuce with way too much grainy salt applied. Nothing else.
Took a bite of friend's dessert, and that was quite delicious. He had fish entree which looked good.
Tried walking in the week before since we were nearby but couldn't get a table. Decided to make a reservation & come back, glad we did. food was very good, promptly seated which was nice. Service was very good, small, quaint but for sure make a reservation as the tables are very scarce. Enjoy the food if you go, wine list is nice as well as good selection by the glass. Worth trying out & we will be back.
There was nothing negative about this restaurant. We arrived to find a number of people waiting at the door. The hostess was patient and offered alternatives to those ahead of us. She asked if we had reservations (which I had fortunately just made earlier in the day) and immediately ushered us to a table in a room with a pianist playing. The music was lovely, the wait staff were informed and efficient, the food was terrific, and the price was good for the quality of the entire evening.
This place s a lovely small neighborhood restaurant with outstanding rags and an interesting wine list
Our favorite restaurant in Oakland. The food is fresh and delicious and the service is exactly right, helpful but not hovering.
Couldn't have been happier to dine for the first time at Enoteca. The service is excellent and it felt personal without overly so. They created a savory swordfish dish and their homemade ragu is rich with flavor. Homemade noodles...yum! We didn't have time for dessert but next time. Nice wine selection.
Being Sicilian I’m very picky and spoiled with great Italian food. But Enoteca Molinari... that’s the place to go..
Delicious as always. My favorite spot for date night in the neighborhood.
The food is simple but sophisticated Italian, slightly more Sicilian, but the full range of dishes and wines are well selected. Chef and waitstaff are so very pleasant. Almond cake was a special treat, with macerated pears and a bit of cardamom. Can’t wait to return for more!
Great food. Excellent wine and a fabulous waiter
Great neighborhood spot. Intimate vibe, authentic Italian food, and great service. My husband and I can’t wait to go back for another date night.
Wonderful neighborhood gem. Each dish had its own unique and delicate flavor. Intimate ambience. Friendly and attentive service. We will make this a habit!
I have been to this restaurant three or four times, each time a little less impressive. The menu has gotten less creative with many dishes with the same tomato sauce. The best thing we had was a sauteed pork tenderloin accompanied with broccolini and a few baby potatoes. The arancini were fine but nothing special. The disappointing dish was the pasta with ragu, too much pasta, not enough sauce and rather sloppily presented. No cheese offered. Wine list is good. Best to go for a drink and an antipasta.
Delicious swordfish prepared perfectly. The
pork tenderloin saltimboca was also delicious. It is a restaurant worth visiting.
What a pleasant surprise. Must have walked by this little gem for past seven years and missed it somehow. It will now become our new fav 'go to' place. It's very popular on weekends so we'll do midweek as often as possible.
Burrata with butternut squash was amazing! Wine list is excellent and very Italian. The wait staff are always very helpful with pairings.
I had the swordfish and my husband had the saltimbocca. Both were very good. They were also very considerate of my dietary restrictions.
Consistently excellent food. Traditional Italian but updated. The menu is small but there is always something for every palate. And, it is all very fresh and wonderful. Cozy too!
Excellent service and delicious food. This is a small restaurant and we had the only table for 4 but there was no sense that the servers were rushing us.
