we looked up for a place to eat pizza on Tripadvisor but it took a while to find the place. the ambience is nice, the service is fast and very kind. They spoke italian to us even if we spoke french at first. the pizza wasn't that big, but still very good and we also saw many enormous pasta dishes... More

I forgot how nice the staff is here at Molisana, and the food is absolutely made like your mamma does it. Enjoy the Pasta Fantasia, a tastig session of fresh home made pasta. Do not forget the Tiramisu: sublime is only the first name. Buon appetito.

If you want a typical Italian restaurant this is the place to go. Very good food, excellent service, and I love hearing the Italian accent when the servers are taking our orders. Best to make reservations even for a dinner on a week night. Only downside is trying to find parking near the restaurant - almost impossible if you don't... More

Just had lunch today after searching on Tripadvisor APPs, I was satisfied over all and what made me confident to enter the restaurant after walking a good 10 minutes from centre was that the place was packed with locals. Nicely welcomed by the owner at the entrance and promptly seated. The waitress within a minute took drink order,really quick! She... More

So glad we made it to this restaurant. A bit out of the way from our hotel (Hotel Angleterre), about a $20 cab ride, but well worth it. The decor is pleasant , but nothing special, however the racks and racks of glassed wine storage adds a nice touch. Nice background music and soft lighting. The restaurant wasn't that busy... More

An authentic Italian restaurant with real Italian dishes (not pseudo Italian favourite dishes to suit the masses). Quality is outstanding. Fabulous fish, meat & vegetarian dishes. Fresh pasta. 6 page wine list & very professional wine-waiter with excellent recommendations. Serving staff are professional & friendly. Restaurant was packed so would advise booking. Can't wait to return.

Although the location and the looks don't give it away, the food in this restaurant is excellent. Fresh pasta, delicious meat, and the longest wine list I've seen... 6 pages full of wines' names, sorted by location of origin, in tiny fonts. Service was fast and very kind, and the place was soon full of groups of friends and families,... More
