This was our first experience at Molto and was delicious and fairly priced. Our waiter was adorable and very attentive. Our food was a little slow coming out, but it’s a new restaurant and they need to work through some kinks. I would highly recommend.

Service was extremely slow. We asked for a heater for outside seating and they never turned it on. Food is oily , I don’t find it to be anything special for the high prices that are charged. Pizza is pretty good - pretty much the only thing I liked. Tried strawberry gelato - way too sweet. Overall nothing special. Outdoor seating uncomfortable

The overall experience was poor .The waiter took 15 mins to wait on us and then told us the wrong items for specials. Had to send food back. Pasta was not cooked evenly and had no flavor. Couple pasta pieces were al dente and some were very soft. Not eatable. Glorified pizza place. Will not return.

Nice addition to the Marlboro dining scene. Prices were high, but food was good. However, $8 for a small gelato is really expensive.

We thought everything was great except for where they sat us. We were aware that we would be at the counter but the entire counter was open and they put us at the corner where everyone was coming and going from the kitchen and bathrooms and we kept getting bumped and interrupted the entire evening! No one should be put in that high traffic spot.

The staff were very nice and the overall ambiance was good even though the outdoor seating is in parking lot. The restaurant did a nice job trying to hide parking lot with trees. The food was good but nothing spectacular and the prices were a bit higher than I would have expected. Overall dinner was good.

Where to start? Hanna our server was fully educated with the menu, based on her recommendations we tried an appetizer paired with the most refreshing salad, Hanna's choice, followed by the most amazing homemade pasta, pistachio pesto, absolutely to die for! Her dessert recommendation was over the top, sweet cream frozen over a lemon glaze, refreshing and easy on the belly!

We can't wait to go back again!

The Molto Bistro takes the approach of providing small dishes (perhaps half a normal portion of food) at relatively high prices ($20). If your intention is to splurge on your party, then I recommend this place. The food quality and taste was good, so at least there is that. A lunch with four people ended up at $150 (and only two of us had dessert). So you can figure it out from there.
The wait staff leaves something to be desired. We can blame it on Covid, but she seemed out of practice, and needed to be reminded many times to bring things, many of which never showed up (e.g., more hot water for tea, more bread). If you are going for the "high end" experience, then you need to provide better service.

It was my son’s HS graduation. We were nine people and were comfortably seated inside. I ordered the grilled octopus which had a delicious sauce with grilled lemon. I then enjoyed the veal chop that was paired with a lemon/potato risotto. For dessert I ordered the semifreddo but it was not ready yet so I switched to the coffee gelato. Fabulous! Decaf cappuccino was creamy and hot. I lovely was to celebrate my son’s special day! Can’t wait to go back!

We tried this place on Mother's Day. To my surprise they didn't have children's menu. When we asked about other menu besides the one we handed, we were told whatever is on menu. Well the table next to us was able to get a pizza that WAS NOT on a menu. Makes you think - why? The waitress offered an 8 year old a pasta with butter for $18! Go figure. The food was simply put NOT worth it - we ordered a seafood salad for appetizer that was not fresh which is a shocker since they do have a Tuscan market next door to supply fresh seafood. Main entree was probably the highlight but still not worth the price. Tiramisu was the worst I have ever tasted. Biscuits soaked in a water rather than in espresso. Save your money and rather go to Cuzins. Trust me!

Beyond terrible experience. They totally messed up the appetizer & never fixed it (is was a burrata, nothing complicated). The pizza came out cold & pasta was okay. Spoke with waitress who tried to take care of the issue with her manager, but the manager seems to have no customer service skills when he came over to talk to us. He seemed pretty talkative to the young girls sitting next to u instead of taking care of our issues. To top it all off, nothing was taken off of the check. Without a doubt, have already told all my friends who planned on going not to go. Stick to Cuzin’s across the parking lot.
