Molto Bene is a small Italian restaurant in Merrick with two separate rooms. The atmosphere is old world fine Italian. The lighting is on the dim side. We arrived for our reservation and were greeted warmly and told our table was being set. We were seated a few minutes later and bread, butter and EVOO were brought to the table. Wine and beverages were brought quickly. Specials were recited by the waiter. An appetizer of Caesar Salad and Sautéed Artichokes were terrific. The main dishes of Chicken Milanese and Scallops were cooked and served perfectly. Homemade Tiramisu was shared and a delicious finish.
As always everything was EXCELLENT !!!
Never disappoints! The food is always delicious and the staff gracious and welcoming. They offer a nice range of specials as well. If you have never been here you are missing out.
Delicious food and wonderful service. We will be returning!
We enjoyed everything especially the option to doing outdoors. The food and service were excellent. Will definitely be back.
Always enjoy Molto Bene
When most restaurants are experiencing short staffs, long wait times and mediocre food quality, Molto Bene has avoided all of that! Excellent wait staff, great food and adherence to reservations time.
My wife’s birthday. They brought out a complimentary piece of cake with a candle and sang happy birthday. Very well done.
Food was delicious but the portions are small. Outdoor seating is in their parking lot on Merrick Rd so it’s loud.
What a great meal my friend and I had on Friday night!!
Good food and service nice people just a little loud not enough for us not to go back always a good place to go out to
Mario is the best
Loved the many specials! Everything prepared meticulously and tasted great. One of our favorites, will definitely return!
Very pricey and the service was horrible
The place needs to be updated and alsobmore comfortable.
Like family supper ! Entire staff is awesome ! Food is delicious!!
Excellent service. Food high quality
The food is just incredible.
Second time here and looking forward to becoming regulars when we are in the mood for Italian food! Food is cooked right and very tasty! Come hungry and leave satisfied.
They were very flexible with exchanging vegetables that came with my dish which I appreciate.
Very comfortable, socially distanced, outdoor dining tent. Restaurant Week menu is great value with excellent choices.
We had a very nice evening and the dinner was delicious!
Inside very dark an loud. I would suggest eating outside in tent. Food
is excellent Service was not very hospitable.
Both the food and the service were excellent. We had the scallop special and the halibut special both were delicious.
This is the fourth or fifth time I've dined at Molto Bene. I classify it as a fine New York City experience, rather than the usual suburban fare. The food is delicious with a wide menu; waiters are helpful and attentive. It's been quiet mid` week and am hoping us vaccinatored gourmets start flocking to this fine restaurant.
The meal I had at Molto Bene in Bellmore was fantastic. The scallops were fresh , breaded and served over a delicious risotto . The wait staff was very pleasant and the service was quick and easy! Would definitely return to this restaurant with other family members .
I took my mother,my daughter and her boyfriend from Maine and my girlfriend. What a nice time! Paul ,our server,was excellent and very funny. If you haven’t been here yet you’re missing a gem !
The food is consistently very good. My pork chop was juicy which is not an easy task with pork chops. Service is always extremely attentive and staff is very helpful. I would definitely recommend. It's a local gem.
Great food good service make you feel very comfortable
Amazing as always!
The food is always on point. Specials are delicious but know that they are usually much more expensive than
regular menu items entrees. Feels like you are with family when dining there.
Like dining with family . Mario is the best
Great dinner last week. So many specials in addition to a great menu that it was really difficult to choose. Everything we ate was delicious. Service was excellent - friendly, helpful, attentive (but not annoying).
We have been to Molto Bene many times and it never disappoints. Service is excellent; the staff is very attentive and the food is delicious.
Great food and service
Always a good meal and staff is very attentive.
A perfect lunch! We were the first ones there and were made to feel like special guests. The service outstanding and the food delicious!! The chicken marsala was one of the best I've ever tasted! Great choices on the menu will keep me coming back!!
Food was good - was restaurant week so they had a pre fixe menu - service was good - but felt totally rushed in and out and it was very expensive
very consistent food and service and a great spot for dinner
Really, really great food and service. We will be returning soon.
Tried For the first time and thought it was great in all respects
Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it and plan to come back often, even though we live in Brooklyn
It’s well worth the trip
