Pole position!!

Without competition! An historical charme food corner manned by Monica with continuosly search of new dishes. Completely fresh ingredients with large fish and meat range. Excellent friendly but also private atmosphere owned by famously Gianni .Satisfactory list of wines and spirits.

The restaurant is too spacious. It seems to me that something is missing. I know very well that the restaurant wants to be stylish but the match of color and the decoration needs to be improved. The chef of service is very professional and he is surely up to level. We are quite disappointed with the lobster dish. The urchin... More

Nice location...surprising decor... Tried to make a phone reservation (in italian) and the unfriendly voice on the other end of the phone was everything but helpful. We entered the Restaurant and an old fella welcomed us by clearing his left hear... Simply shocking... Restaurant half empty, while over the phone we were told "inside only", with a kind of attitude...... More

Upon entering last night and asking for a table for three, the man on the door (possibly the owner) ignored us initially and spoke to a couple behind us. We then asked if there was a free table (there were many) but said they were fully booked. He then said we could maybe come back at 10 pm and whilst... More

I appreciate Monica's cooking skills since long time. No discussion, she is the n. 1 cook in Savona! Every time I go there it is pure moment of pleasure! Restaurants such as Il Molo bring prestige to Savona! See you soon!

I had a business lunch in this restaurant and the service was excellent as per the food. Very tasty ravioli with pumpkin and nuts sauce, never seen before and delicious! The kitchen is open to the restaurant and we can tell it is very clean.

Went tonight second time to Molo and were truly disappointed mainly due to the mainhost being very rude and not caring. Furthermore the ambience is just not right - supposely trendy but misses the elegance and sophistication. Food was ok'ish - nothing special.
