Breaded eggplant topped with mozzarella & tomato sauce
Homemade ravioli stuffed with lobster topped with peppers & mushrooms in a light cognac cream sauce
Very nice outdoor set up even though it faces Merrick Rd. Food and service was excellent. All covid rules were followed. Looking forward to going back.
Excellent food and service! The homemade burrata is a must!
Do not hesitate to try this restaurant; it literally is Molto Bene! The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. There’s indoor and outdoor dining options. Although it’s located on a busy (Merrick Road), the management did a great job of creating a nice dining experience outdoors and we enjoyed our meal immensely on a mild September evening. We didn’t order dessert yet the waiter came out and surprised us with a wonderful slice of chocolate mousse. Very classy move and a great business move. This has become my husband’s new favorite restaurant and he’s a tough critic. Bon appétit!
Arturo, as always was attentive, and the food was great!
Delicious food ! Would definitely go again service was excellent!!!
Been there many times. Food I consistently delicious. Service is awesome
Sat outside and had terrific service. All 4 at the table had specials (3fish) (1 lamb chop) and everyone raved.
From appys to dinner and wine. All great. Highly recommend.
First time dining here for my boyfriend's birthday. Couldn't have been more pleased. He's a bit of a restaurant snob, so I was a little hesitant. No worries. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance was right on point. I will definitely return to try something else on the menu. The only downside was deciding on what to order. I highly recommend this restaurant!!
Food and service were excellent as always. Restaurant was respectful of required COVID-19 safety measures.
The escargot in pesto with goat cheese was outstanding as was the service!
Amazing food. Gem of a place! The staff is so welcoming and polite. The food is so FRESH, Youll never get a bad meal here.
Delicious!! Service inside was very comfortable and spacious. There is outdoor dining, too.
Everything from appetizers to dessert was delicious and the service was excellent. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Would definitely recommend the restaurant.
Welcoming outdoor area and spectacular food and service! A neighborhood gem!
It was my Husband’s birthday and I thought we’d try a new restaurant. We were both VERY glad we did. There was outdoor seating which was a lovely setup except for the fact that it’s right on Merrick Road and there were several loud muscle cars that sped by during our meal. Totally no reflection or fault of Molto Bene; We could’ve opted to eat inside. Our Waiter was EXCELLENT which totally enhanced our dining experience and the food was AMAZING. The menu is extensive with plenty of choices and also several specials for that particular day. Also, The prices are very reasonable. My Husband is not easy to impress. His stock answer whenever I ask how his meal is is always “it’s OK” but this time when I asked him he looked at me and enthusiastically and said, “It’s delicious!.” (He had the Veal Parmigiana). I booked a reservation through Open Table and noted it was a special occasion/birthday and the Waiter surprised us with a chocolate mousse dessert equipped with a lit candle. It was a really nice touch and on the house. Very classy. We will definitely be back. Trust me, this restaurant is literally MOLTO BENE!
Dinner at Molto Bene is always consistent. Excellent food, great service and comfortable atmosphere. They adhere to social distancing guidelines, as well. Highly recommend.
Always wonderful Arturo and Val are the best
I will preface this by saying I've been to this restaurant a few times over the years. Always found it enjoyable.
Got to the restaurant on time for reservation. They couldn't find it. Told them it was made through Open Table, they seemed disgruntled. We were sat at a tiny table in the corner.
Once our orders were taken, we never saw our waiter again. No one offered fresh ground pepper for salads. Once we finished our appetizer, a women can over to take our coffee and dessert order. We told her we hadn't had our main course yet.
Dinner arrive. I was given the wrong entrée. No one came over to check on us. I wound up eating it, but it was not what was ordered. We had to flag down someone to get our check.
We felt that since the staff was very friendly to what appeared to be regular customers, we were definitely treated as an after thought. There were many other vocal customers this evening.
The place is small and crowded, the food is ok, the prices do warrant what is served.
Will not be going back.
Always great service and amazing food here!
We had a 7:30 reservation on a Saturday night. We arrived on time and they could not seat us because an earlier reservation was 40 minutes late. We waited until 8:00 and they still could not seat us. They did absolutely nothing to accommodate us or attempt to apologize. We left at 8:00 and went elsewhere. Disappointed and will not return.
Food is always a hit! We’ll be back soon!
Found it very noisy, crowded, tables added since last time we were here. I had very expensive seafood special & the lobster tail was not edible. Pasta lumped on my plate. Very very disappointed. Really never had a waiter assigned to our table
Welcoming? Not so much. Poor service, being ignored and a bombastic atmosphere did not make for a delightful dining experience. There is such a rushed and harried atmosphere to everything they do. Truly this is a restaurant to avoid.
Special birthday dinner (6 of us dined)
Everything was perfect. ALL of the Food was incredible for all of us. And so many specials to choose from
The food is always so delicious; can wait to go back . Try the French martini 🍸 too
We were seated as soon as we walked in. There were too many tables added that the waiters could not get around the tables without knocking into the customers. Food and drinks were very good. It was a bit too loud...needs sound proofing!
Food was good but seating is tight. Not much space between tables.
Food was very good. It was a bit noisy. We were not rushed out of the restaurant. I would definitely go back and recommend to a friend!
Molto Bene is an exceptional restaurant. The food and service is always top shelf. It is a little pricey so you need to be prepared.
We all had specials and a great bottle of wine. Delicious!
Service and food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back
My whole family went for Christmas Eve. We had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was delicious and everyone was very happy with their meals. The waiter was very informative and attentive. Great experience I will definitely be back.
Good food and drinks
This was the second time in one week that we were at Molto Bene. It's a very nice neighborhood restaurant with attentive staff and very good food.
Love this place.. Great food, service and value...Can’t wait to go back
Yum! Great service! We have been before and we will be back!
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the wine and menu. In addition to the menu, there were a ton of specials. Food was very good and the pasta was al dente. I would highly recommend.
We always enjoy ourselves; food is good; staff is attentive
Fresh, high quality, well prepared ingredients. Good variety of specials and regular menu items.
