This place was empty and now we know why. Bland, Bland, and way overpriced. Frankly, Olive Garden has better, more authentic Italian fare than Molino's. Red Snapper with clams in a red sauce was without flavor. The salad was average at best. The special bow tie pasta chicken in Red sauce was bland and the chicken was significantly over cooked....

This restaurant was so good we went back for a second visit! Angel hair arabiata was awesome! My husband had the fish special and loved it! Nice wine selection with fair prices. Cannoli was also good for dessert. We sat outside both nights and it was perfect! Michael was an awesome host!

Really good Italian food that I simply couldn't stop eating even after hitting the comatose level of full. Lobster ravioli and Chilean seabass are a must. Mussels, clams great starters.

Had a delicious lunch on the patio with a friend. Very good service and the food was delicious and made from scratch. The patio faces the inside of the promenade shops with water features and beautiful landscaping. Good for a business lunch or dinner with friends.

I see a number of Wrong Review Items by my Experiences over past Years at Molino's . Most Dinner items average around $20-25. And are exceptional as the Lobster ravioli, Chillian Sea Bass & veal dishes I have had... They have the best appetizer Grilled Octopus I have had anywhere in the World... A real delicacy. Its a shame to... More

Food was over priced ... Send over cooked. Service was slow. The wine list was decent, so it made the meal a bit tolerable. The slip was not hot, the oversized bowl made the small serving look big.

Drive 14 miles to Campiello in Naples. Service was totally unacceptable. Made reservation through Open Table for 7pm. Restaurant called same day (new years) and changed my reservation. Totally ridiculous. Got there at 6pm and restaurant was empty.

Food was good, but terribly slow service will keep us from returning. Granted, our visit was "off season", but that is never an excuse not to have prompt table service at this price point. To be competitive, they're going to need to hire a few true professional waiters and not just have the owner and bartender serving.

The concierge at the Hyatt hotel (Bonita Springs) suggested this restaurant to 6 of us (adults & children) for dinner. The food was very good but not quite what the younger children would have liked. Luigi, our waiter, worked patiently with the kids until each of them found something to order. It was more of a fine dining experience than... More

We wish we would have found this place earlier in our vacation, because we would have eaten here more than once! My husband has had veal all over the world, but said that the veal marsala here was by far the best he's ever had. Our 13-yr-old daughter ordered a fish entree, can't remember the name, but ate every bite.... More
