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.

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.

Food was delicious but the portions are small. Outdoor seating is in their parking lot on Merrick Rd so it’s loud.

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 .

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.

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.
